Meal Plan Monday {Dec 12} + WW {Wk30}

Okay, last Thursday was National Brownie Day --- did you know that?  I made a big batch from scratch that we’ve been snacking on for days!  Bad idea.

12.12 FBMy Facebook status from last Thursday ~ I just realized I spelled “licking” wrong.  LOL.

Also, I woke up yesterday morning with a waffle craving so I busted out the waffle iron and made some homemade waffles.  Yum.  They were super yummy, I don’t know why I don’t make them more often, and the leftovers this morning were just as good reheated in the toaster oven :)

We ended up going out to eat a few times last week so some of our meals got pushed from last week to this week.  I’m hoping we can stay on plan this week and with easy meals it should be plausible.  This is the last week before Christmas break for the husband and the annual chili cook-off at his school is this Friday so we’ll be making his Grandma Gene’s Famous Award Winning Chili.  Also we’ll be attending his departments annual Christmas party on Saturday where there will be lots of yummy food & treats --- I’m making The Meatball Shop’s Mini Buffalo Chicken Meatballs that I saw on The Rachael Ray Show.  Next week we’ll start the first of many family get-together’s for the holidays.  It really is the most wonderful time of year!

Monday ~ Tofu Fried Rice

This carried over from last week.

 Tuesday ~ Turkey Burgers

This also carried over from last week.

Wednesday ~ Grilled Mahi Mahi in foil packets on the BBQ

We’ve had this in the freezer for a couple of weeks and the husband was getting antsy wondering when we were going to have it.  I had forgotten we even bought it. 

Thursday ~ Pasta with marinara sauce and Turkey Meatballs

Friday ~ leftover pasta

Saturday ~ Holiday Party

Sunday ~ leftovers/soup from the freezer

We’ll either have leftover chili from the chili cook-off or soup from the freezer.

Weight Watchers Week 30 {12.05.11 – 12.11.11} 
Weigh-in {12.12.11} = 137.4 lbs
Week  30 Gain = +0.6 lbs
Total Weight Loss = –12.8 lbs 
Starting Weight {05.16.11} = 150.2 lbs
I earned 16 activity points
I exercised 6 out of 7 days
*Another week where I didn’t track everyday.  This is becoming a theme that I am not liking but with upcoming holiday parties and family gatherings I think the trend might be repeating until the end of the year.  I just have to remind myself to make the best choices possible, avoid overeating candy/treats, eat lots of snacks & fruits/veggies, and avoid eating out.  I get yo-yo’ing between 135-138 when I do my daily scale check and I can most definitely feel the difference in my clothes.  I just hope I can continue to maintain under 140 through the holiday season --- and hopefully I get good news from the PT today and maybe start being able to do more cardio exercises again.
