Weight Watchers Wednesday, Week 25

It is Weight Watchers Wednesday, Week 25 and this week I lost 1 lb. for a running total of 31 lbs. I was pleased with my loss. Of course I wish it were more, but I am finally over the 30 lb. and now my new goal is 50 lbs.

I have been walking regularly. My friend Mary is coming over a few nights a week and we walk between 4 and 5 miles. I also have been walking some on my own . I did a walk/jog combo yesterday, and felt the burn for sure! I will be a runner one day. It may not be tomorrow, but eventually I will. I am also trying to teach Daisy to walk on a leash, so that is a lot of extra walking too.

I have felt so good about the week thus far. I have been eating right and exercising, but it has been fairly easy because we have been at home. We are going to the river for the weekend, and having company too. That always leads to a little more temptation for me. I guess I will just have to take an extra long paddleboat ride to make up for any extra calories I consume in homemade ice cream.

The only pic I have of me is one from this morning as we were heading out the door to the boys' first dentist appt. (It was a disaster. I'll have to cover that in another post.) We are in the kitchen floor, but I think you can tell I have lost weight through my face. Con looks a little stunned, and I'm not sure why.
For this week's recipe, I was gonna post a lite ice cream recipe that I want to try out in my ice cream maker, but since I haven't done it yet I am gonna go with something a little safer. Here is a link to a "Chameleon" ice cream. The woman who wrote the recipe says this about it, "CHAMELEON ICE CREAM is my new ‘standard but never-the-same-twice’ ice cream. It begs for creativity! " It has several different recipes listed. I am gonna be making the Coffee Spice or Coconut first. Just follow this link, and you can thank me later.

I hope you had a great week and I look forward to hearing from all my WW pals!
