Weight Watchers Wednesday, Week 11

It is Weight Watchers Wednesday, Week 11 and I lost a whopping .6 lbs. for a running total of 21.2 lbs. This is nothing short of a miracle, since I can take credit for eating my weight in those little Lofthouse sugar cookies this weekend. Connor loves them, and I buy them for him,(yeah right!) knowing full well that I LOVE them too. Gonna have to do better! One cookie is 4 points. It is worth those points to me, but when you eat 3 or 4 (or 5) you have spent half of your day's points and one is never enough. Hopefully after Easter passes they will stop making them in those beautiful colors and they won't be so tempting. Plus, when they put them it is hard to escape without them. Enough excuses, hopefully I will do better going forward.

I have been so incredibly busy this past week. I did not get my exercising in, AGAIN, but I don't feel too bad about it. After all, I ate a ton of cookies and still had a loss. I must be moving enough to burn off some of those cookies.

I went shopping today for an Easter dress and was so excited that my pants were falling down all day. When I found the dress I got to go down a size, and that was wonderful! YEAH Weight Watcher's!

For this week's recipe, I am gonna share my Oatmeal Expresso recipe that I got from here. You know how much I LOVE coffee, so this is wonderful in my book! It combines coffee and oatmeal for a quick and easy breakfast. I like to have a piece of toast or an egg with it.

(Oatmeal and coffee, all in one)
Serves 3
3/4 cup old-fashioned oats (quick oats work too)
2 teaspoons instant coffee
3 teaspoons Splenda
1/4 cup skim milk
1/2 cup water

Combine oats, instant coffee and Splenda. Stir in the skim milk and water. Microwave the mixture for one minute and 45 seconds.

NUTRITION ESTIMATE Per serving: 87Cal; 2g Tot Fat; 0g Sat Fat; 0mg Cholesterol; 13mg Sodium; 16g Carb; 2g Fiber; 1g Sugar; 3g Protein; Weight Watchers 1 point

I'm pooped from a long day shopping for the Easter Bunny (he is so lazy to make me do the shopping and not get ANY of the credit HA!) and trying to find outfits for all of us. I am gonna go get a shower and watch Walker's new movie with him. Aunt Wewe sent us Racing Stripes in the mail today, and he is so excited to watch it. Wewe says it is right up his alley, and she knows him about as good as me, so I am sure he will love it. Hope all my WW buddies had a great week and I look forward to hearing from you!

Hey! Congrats! I am not a WW buddy, but I am trying to lose weight. I am doing well. We got a WII fit a few days ago and are having a blast after Bryce goes to bed. I know that you have been using one too. We laugh until we cry! Have fun skinny!

I did a Leslie walk the other day and half of a Taebo workout today. I'm ready to go outside and walk which I hope to do this evening. Im so proud of your success friend! Keep it up!
