Breakfast: Overnight oats with skim milk + chocolate yogurt + sliced banana  6PP+

Snack: WW Cranberry Cashew Bar 3PP+

Lunch: Tuna salad, 1 slice whole wheat bread, cheddar cheese 9 PP+

Dinner: Morningstar Farm Chik’n patty, 1/4 avocado, sauteed squash 6PP+

Snacks: Pre-run banana, Smartfood Popcorn, birthday cake  (a grossly underestimated) 5PP+

Wendy Plan Target + Activity Points – Points Used = Net
33 + 3 – 29 = 7

I say grossly underestimated because my leader just pointed out that a 3×3 piece of sheet cake is 14PP+.  Do you KNOW how small that is?  I have probably been way underestimating my points for sweets.  But I did see a loss this week, so THANKS WENDY, WHO EVER YOU ARE!

Mid-day Snack: Fruit salad, Smartfood Popcorn 2PP+

Lunch: 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 packet Weight Watchers Vanilla Smoothie mix, 1 cup blueberries, 1 banana 3PP+

Dinner: I picked up Thai for these amazing friends.  Sunday night is our True Blood viewing party, and after all that they did for my fantastic celebration the night before, I treated us to take-out.  I kept it light, 2 vegetarian dumplings, a spring roll and edamame.  7PP+

Sweet Snacks: I ate some Malted Milk balls in the morning, and I was sent home with a piece of birthday cake.  12PP+

Wendy Plan Day 4 Food Log

Wendy Plan: Day Four
Breakfast: Green Monster Smoothie: 1 cup unsweetened almond milk, 1 packet Weight Watchers Coconut Smoothie mix, 1 banana, 1 cup frozen strawberries, cinnamon raisin toast.  5PP+

Un-pictured: The blender that shattered when I dropped it on the floor.

Mid-day Snack: Special K Fruit crisps 3PP+
Lunch: Tuna salad, cheese, apple sauce, carrots, cucumber 7PP+
Dinner: Tapas…  I have NO idea how many points I actually ate.  My amazing friends surprised me with a luxurious dinner, a limo ride with endless champagne, a stop at a bar for cake, etc. etc. etc.  I tried to eat reasonable amounts of everything, but I drank a lot more than I have in a long time.  I estimated 16PP+ for the meal and 18PP+ for the alcohol, but I don’t know if that is even close to accurate.

But I had a truly magical evening, so I am cutting myself some slack here.

Wendy Plan Target + Activity Points – Points Used = Net
48 + 0 – 49 = -1

So it’s not THAT bad, in retrospect.  Like I said, I’m certain there are things I did not count accurately at all, and I will have to own that this week.

Wendy Plan Day 3 Food Log

Wendy Plan: Day Three
Breakfast: Green Monster Smoothie with 1 TBSp PB2, 1 cup almond milk, spinach, banana and ice.  2PP+

Mid-day Snack: Overnight Oats 5PP+
Lunch: Cincinatti Chili, Cheese, saltines 8PP+
Snack: 1/2 Luna Bar, Gardetto’s Reduced Fat Snacks 9PP+ (here’s where it kinda goes downhill)
Dinner: BBQ Pork Banh Mi, Coconut water Est. 11PP+ but probably more
Movies in the park snacks: Twizzlers, Whoppers, Popcorn, beer 21PP+
Wendy Plan Target + Activity Points – Points Used = Net
28 + 5 -56 = -23. NEGATIVE ONE WHOLE DAY. Ooooof.
And guess what? I did all this because I’m celebrating my birthday early. And I was trying to plan ahead, because I have another dinner tomorrow. I still have some WPs left to splurge on, and I feel confident that I can make wise decisions during the day, but will power is going to be difficult for me tomorrow.

Let’s talk about my friend Wendy…

What do you know about Wendy?  Personally, this is the only Wendy I know, and I know her pretty well:

Wendy's
Home of the very first Wendy’s!

That’s right…  Wendy and I come from the same roots.  But I’m talking about a different one here.  Weight Watcher’s, as you may know, works on a Daily Points system, with additional weekly and activity points to distribute as you want throughout your week.  Recently, my points have been…  out of control.

So in comes Wendy.  You can read about it HERE, or by Google-ing Weight Watcher’s Wendy Plan.  What this does is jiggle up your point distribution to sort of jump start your metabolism.  Or so they tell me…  I’m trying it out starting this week, and hopefully this will give me something to focus on, because I know in my mind what my points are, but I continually go over (and over and over) them.

Wendy Plan: Day One
Breakfast: Overnight Oats, Banana 4PP+
Mid-day Snack: Saltines 2PP+
Lunch: Salsa Chicken, Tortilla Chips, Black Beans, Reduced Fat Cheese 11PP+
Dinner: 1 Cup Skim Milk, 1 Cup Multi-grain Cheerios, 1 peach 5PP+ (It was hot, that’s all I wanted!)
Pre-Gym snack: 1 Banana, 1 Weight Watchers Cranberry Cashew snack bar 3PP+
Evening Snack: Puddin’ Cup 3PP+
Wendy Plan Target + Activity Points – Points Used = Net
26 + 6 – 28 = 4 unused APs
