For those of you doing Weight Watchers, I can’t recommend a kitchen scale highly enough. It really makes all the difference in the world. For example, my dinner plate is MUCH fuller than I thought it would be and as a result mentally I’m feeling less deprived. I lost another 1.2lbs this past week and have set a larger goal of 2+ for this week and I’m realizing just how mental the process really is. I’ve started in incorporate more exercise beyond the once per week 90 minutes of Volleyball. Frankly the days I work out I eat MUCH better. You see I wouldn’t want to waste the effort, mental I told you!
In an effort to keep myself accountable, I’ll share my workout plan – it’s one that ANYONE can do – want to join me?
- 3 days of walking 30 minutes (brisk walking, not a leisurely stroll)
- 2 days of dying with Jillian Michaels 20 Minute Workout DVD
- 1 day of 90 minutes intense indoor volleyball
That may not seem like much to some of you, but for this work at home busy mom or 4 kids – it’s what I feel I can handle right now for starters. How will you be active this week?
My latest Weight Watchers friendly pantry staples... I’ll try to share a few new ones each week.
- Fiber One English Muffins – 2 PointsPlus
- Costco’s Kirkland Crumbled Baco – 1 PointsPlus per stbsp (perfect in an egg beater omelet!)
Here’s what we’ll be eating for dinners this week:
Broiled Salmon with Roasted Carrots, Brussels Sprouts, and Red Potatoes: We had this just this week but Mr. Frugal wasn’t home for dinner, it was so good I’m cooking it again. Tip: But the frozen Salmon from Costco for big savings – just thaw them in the fridge overnight to avoid any “mushyness”.
Grilled Teriyaki Chicken, Brown Rice, and Steamed Asparagus – Simple yet flavorful and filling meal!
Hamburgers with a giant salad (onion rings for the kids and hubby)! - Yes you can eat a burger on the Weight Watchers plan, you just have to budget your points and plan for it. I’ll enjoy every single bite too. One tip – get the leanest possible ground beef you can afford and load it with veggies, also use less meat than you think you need for your patty. You’ll be surprised that all you really need is the flavor and not a ton of meat.
Some kind of soup – It’s really cold here lately, so I’m thinking a chicken noodle soup of some sort but I haven’t nailed down a recipe yet.
Friday Night Pizza Night – Veggie pizza for me and using Mama Mia’s pizza crust – single serve is 4pts and rather large.
