It is Weight Watchers Wednesday, Week 37 and this week I lost .5 lbs. for a running total of 36.5 lbs. I am off of my goal for the week by 1/2 lb. so I am gonna have to really be good this weekend travelling and stay on track. I can do it!
For those of you that do not follow Weight Watchers, they have 2 types of plans. The Core Plan and Flex Plan. The Core is based on eating healthy foods until you are full, and you don't have to count points as long as you only eat the foods you are allowed. On the Flex plan you eat a daily allowance of points that are determined by a food's fat, fiber, and calorie content. I have been intending to switch to the Core plan for a while now. The only time I get my veggies in is when I am on the Core plan not the Flex plan. I am weak. I use my Flex points on junk food no matter how I look at it. I only eat my points, but they are not spent on veggies or lean protein. I would much rather have a Snickers bar for 7 points than a healthier alternative. I obviously lose better when eating healthy foods, so this week is gonna be the switch I've been putting off.
On the exercise front, it's been raining here. I have been a real slacker this week. I had a great work out Sunday and then skipped Monday. I worked like a crazy woman pulling weeds and raking Tuesday, but didn't get diddley exercise in today. I am exercising tomorrow and Friday to get my time in.
For a recipe this week, I am sharing more of a tip than a recipe. As I have told you many times before, I am a coffee-aholic. I LOVE it. I could drink it all day everyday. I am also a pumpkin fanantic. I look so forward to this time of year because Starbuck's has their Pumpkin Spice Latte. I would hate to know how many points one of those is. Hence I came up with my own version. I brew Pumpkin Spice coffee, add Splenda, Sugarfree Vanilla creamer, and I top it with Fat Free Cool Whip. Can I just tell you it is delicious and definitely worth 2 points!
I hope all my WW buddies had a great week and I look forward to hearing your progress. By the way, if you are on WW, do you do Flex or Core?
