Guys. This is a big deal for me. I am focusing a lot of my energy on being in the moment and less anxious about what’s ahead. It’s taking a LOT of practice. One of the things I am hoping to start a habit of is planning, prepping, and preparing meals. Tricky business with a newborn, but I am determined. 💁🏼 If not now, when, right? 🤷♀️ I spent my afternoon attempting a meal plan and preparing an online grocery order (ClickList here in the NW!!). I had made a mental note that dinner was going to be the Kodiak Cakes we had on hand + some sort of fruit, with nut butters as an option for anyone who wanted it. Normally, if I even had a suggestion for dinner, I’d leave it to Hubbs to prepare. Nope. Not today. He took over baby duty and I did the cakes. 😁 It wasn’t difficult, aside from the multiple interruptions. 🙄 Meal-making, to me, is not what I usually care to be doing. If I could, I would hire it out almost always. But, I am determined for it not to be a burden. I’m determined to find joy in it. Someway. Somehow. If you read this far, you probably connect with me on some level, and are probably part of my tribe. Leave me a comment and share something about you so we can get to know each other, eh? ☺️💗
3sp for 3 cakes. 🤓🙌🏻
Remember when I mentioned the Halloween Funfetti cake we made for family movie night? Well, I finally got around to having a slice, just three days later. 😂 I had quite a few points left after dinner so it was the perfect time to bust out the big guns. Added some pumpkin pie halo top because you can't have cake without ice cream, amiright?! Hard to believe that after just 2 weeks on weight watchers these smaller servings (would normally have double this 😳) fill me up. LOVE IT. 💁🏼#weightwatchers#beyondthescale#wwonline#wwsmartpoints#wwcommunity#wwgirl#wwfoodjournal#kaylaeatsdessert
This is how my new chili recipe turned out! If you can't tell by my the picture it was absolutely delicious. I served my 3 cups of chili (8 SP) with 1/2 cup vegan cheddar cheese (3 SP) and 2 pieces of sourdough toast (4 SP). I had a lot of points for dinner so I indulged a little!
Chili: makes 20 servings of 1 cup that are 3 SP!
16 oz Ground Chicken
1/2 white onion
3 Cloves Minced Garlic
Taco Seasoning to taste
Onion Powder to taste
Salt to taste
Chili Powder to taste
2 cups Sliced Mushrooms
6 cups Spinach
2 cans Tomato Sauce (no sugar)
1 can Diced Tomatoes (no sugar)
8 oz Frozen Corn
1 can Black Beans
1 can Pinto Beans
1 can Kidney Beans
In your crock pot add the tomatoes sauce, diced tomatoes, corn, beans, and taco seasoning. Turn the crock pot on low and leave it.
With a little cooking spray start browning ground chicken with seasoning on stove. Add a little water if meat is too dry. When all the pink is gone add diced onion, sliced mushrooms, and minced garlic cooking until onions are translucent then add spinach. After the spinach starts wilting turn the heat off. Add the chicken mixture to your crock pot and stir throughly. The chili is ready to eat, but I suggest leaving it for a little bit to let the seasonings develop more.
Dinner tonight! Pretty sure I went over my 21 points that I had saved for the day, but I'm totally ok with that! It's all about the balance w/ ww! And it's the only reason I've been able to lose and keep the weight off! I can still go out to eat & enjoy myself and not feel deprived. And the company tonight was even better than the food! Such a good night ladies 😉Guesstimate on the points- shrimp tostada (2), cheese enchilada (10?), chips and cheese dip (8) and I have no idea how many points my skinny margarita was! At least I only had one and ordered it skinny! 😂 Back on track tomorrow 👍 #ww#wwcommunity#wwlifetime#wwfamily#wwsmartpoints#becauseitworks#beyondthescale
Day 8 of #whole30 ➡️ @skinnytaste burger bites for dinner! 1sp for each bite (5sp) • 3 oz sweet potato fries (3sp) • side of asparagus that wasn't ready for the pic 🤤 Honestly could've saved a lot of time by making regular patties, but this was a lot more fun 😉
My first #weightwatchers dinner! This is supposed to have avocado but mine weren’t ripe enough 😭 I added a little light sour cream and this was an 8SP dinner! Quinoa, chicken with salsa, cumin and chili powder, cherry tomatoes, corn, and a 1/4 of a lime squeezed on top 😍 it’s really yummy! #wwcanada#wwnewbie#crushinggoals
