It is Weight Watchers Wednesday, Week 10 and I had a loss of .2 lbs. for a running total of 20.6lbs. I am not surprised with my little loss this week, in fact I am thankful for it. It has just been one of those weeks. I have eaten bad, and felt a little discouraged and tired of dieting. I did not eat as bad as I used to, but I made myself and my eating secondary to whatever else was going on. I didn't keep my food journal, or plan all my meals in advance. I didn't sleep very well a few nights and that always leads to eating bad for me. I look at the 20 lbs. lost and know in my head that it is great to have lost 20 lbs. in 10 weeks, but I know in my heart I could have done better. I should exercise more. Drink more water. Eat more veggies. But at the end of the day, I realize that being so hard on myself and expecting perfection is why I always stop Weight Watchers and start eating poorly again. So, I will pick myself up, leave last week in the past, and vow to do better. This week I'll faithfully follow my eating schedule and WRITE down my points instead of keeping a running tally in my head.
As I mentioned earlier, I did not exercise much this week. I have been in a bit of a rut. I did a lot of little things like chasing the boys around and walking one day, but I did not do my Wii Fit or my 5 Mile Fat Burner dvd at all. I will get back in the groove this week.
For this week's recipe, I am gonna share with you a recipe for a WW Cobbler. I was really wanting a homemade sweet this past week, so I decided to dig through some of my old cookbooks. I found this recipe tucked in one of the old books from a WW meeting. So simple, and SO DELISH!
Blackberry Cobbler, 3 points a serving
1 bag of frozen blackberries
1 yellow cake mix (straight from the box)
16 oz. diet 7-Up or Diet Sprite
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray cooking spray in a 9x13 pan. Pour the blackberries in the bottom (while frozen). Pour the dry cake mix over the blackberries. Pour the entire bottle of 7-Up over the top. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 25 mins. Remove aluminum foil and bake for an additional 25-30 mins. Cut into 12 slices. 3 points/slice.
I also made this cobbler with frozen blueberries and it was wonderful. Peaches will be next on the list to try.
I am excited to hear from all my WW buddies and see how you did this week. Hopefully you all did great and it will give me the motivation to do better next week!
