Another week of Weight Watchers has passed. If you want to read about how well last week went, you can read about it on Weigh in Monday! This week, I used all my extra points on the weekend again, so I am staying within my points for the week (or trying to)!
My goal is 28 points per day this week, but Monday when I was documenting my day, it didn't so much work out. I didn't go over by a lot of points, but a couple, because I did what I said never to do and I ate before calculating the points of a recipe. I clearly need to take my own advice!! Now what did I eat??
I was out of All Bran today so I had an English Muffin and I can never get enough Peanut butter so that is the perfect topping in my eyes! 7PP is a bit high, for me, at breakfast. I usually eat my breakfast crunch and it is only 5PP, so Tuesday I ate just half of the english muffin and added a banana for 5PP. It was a nice change, but I will likely go back to my crunchy breakfast next week!
I had lunch at a friends house Monday and we put together some ham pita pockets. When I put the pocket in to my scanner for points, it was 4 points, so I used only half of it for 2 points because 4 seemed like a lot to me! I filled the pita pocket with ham, lettuce, mushroom and a little bit of Chipotle Ranch. I used the rest of the TBSP of ranch for my side of carrot sticks. Then for some more crunch I had some honey wheat pretzels! Love them! It was a very satisfying lunch and even more satisfying is the fact that we got to eat it outside! Spring has arrived in Maine...FINALLY!
I made a smoothie in the afternoon. Super low points and really good! If you like smoothies, come back tomorrow for the recipe! It is my Recipe of the Week, compliments of a friend!
Now here is where things went wrong! I made Sweet BBQ Chicken in the crock pot. This was leftover from my freezer cooking back in September. I made quinoa and broccoli for the side. In my head, I didn't think BBQ sauce was many points and I kind of forgot about the brown sugar in it. So I thought the chicken would be very low in points, so I had 6 oz of chicken (6PP) plus the sauce which I added a few extra tablespoons to the top of the chicken. Then after dinner I looked up the recipe and put it into recipe builder. The BBQ sauce was a lot more points than I anticipated and I didn't really have an accurate amount of how much I had used because some was just on the chicken. I put in what I thought plus a couple more points for good meausure and went over my points.
So, I went over by 2 points, but it wasn't 2 points of chips and candy, so I am hoping that it won't affect me too much on the scale, Friday! Fingers crossed :) Have a great Wednesday, everyone!
