My Weigh In & Weekly Menu!

by DanicasDaily on February 20, 2011

Happy Sunday all!  Thanks for all the congrats on Twitter & Facebook on my Weight Watchers Weigh In this week.  I have to say I REALLY needed that 2.4 LB WEIGHT LOSS to boost my motivation! 

It is pretty cool to think that I had a completely DELICIOUS week of Jacks & sushi, pizza, tacos, yet stayed on track by writing it all down and balancing it out with healthy eating.  There is something to be said for being honest with yourself and counting it all.

.I snacked on a banana before my meeting started.

Then, I came home to THIS!  He made a “2 1/2 LB” Necklace for me to wear to show me this is how much you LOST…..I LOVE him!

I actually resisted the urge to get my usual Dirty Latte because I wanted to try out this NEW Trader Joe’s Coffee.  It combines coffee and cocoa!

I actually LOVE the coffee because you get hints of cocoa….I am definitely going to make an iced coffee with it soon.  I finally had my EGG-WICH today too! (5 points+)

It’s funny that I made this Fresh Corn, Potato & Bacon Chowder for The Husband who has a cold, but, all he wanted was PB&J.  I had a big bowl for 6 points+.

Plus a slice of Sour Dough with 1 tsp Whipped Butter (4 points+)

The usual ~ Organic Carrots, Broccoli Slaw & 1 Tbsp TJ’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (1 pp)

Since I finally feel like cooking again, I actually had trouble deciding on what to make this week ~ there are so many good recipes out there Smile  It also didn’t help that I came across some fun new products at Trader Joe’s that I just had to try.

PEANUT BUTTER GOODIES!

WAFER LIKE COOK (THINK KIT KAT) + PEANUT BUTTER (THINK REESE’S)+CREAMY MILK CHOCOLATE+SALTY DRY ROASTED PEANUTS……LOVE!!!

2 Points+ per cookie.

I had a bite on one cookie for the picture and knew right away I HAD to have another.  OMG, these cookies are AMAZING, but, the good part is TWO IS ENOUGH! (4 points+)

Total Cooking Irony sums up dinner!  I planned out this amazing week of meals including making The Husband his Valentine’s Day steak that I never did.

I told him he could pick ANYTHING he wanted since he is sick and nothing sounds good……I listed off the menu below or said I could get take out.

HIs pick ~ Chipotle!! LOL……
