My Week 5 in Review

I decided that I had to stay on track this week!  I HAD to track!  And I did and guess what??
LOST 3 pounds!!!!!!!
I know this program works but I really know it works when I WORK THE PROGRAM!  Weeks like this make me understand why it is so important to track everything that I eat and drink.
Running total = 7.6 pounds GONE!

Food:
I was good this week.  We prepared a couple meals at home and it was fun.  Now I remember that cooking is fun sometimes!  
One recipe that we decided to dive into again was the Pie Style Spanakopita that I wrote about last year.  This recipe is easy to follow and pretty good.  Jeremy isn't a fan but I do really like it for left overs - seems creamer the second round!  
We also tried a  recipe from another Weight Watchers blog - Chicken Cordon Bleu.  YUM!  I will be sharing this recipe soon as well.  Credits will be given I promise!  Here is a picture of the finished product.
I also tried something new this week.  Have you heard of PB2?  Are you a Peanut Butter lover?  I am - but it is soooo high in points!  Some days I believe it is worth it, others not so much.  I decided to try this product. 
It was worth it.  Seriously.  Now I will be honest, I can tell it isn't REAL peanut butter but it hits the spot and for 2 TBSP it is ONLY 1PP!!!  That right there makes me smile!  
Last night I had a PB2 Bagel Thin sandwich for dinner.  4 points!  BOOM!!  

ActiveLink:
Well...I like this thing but I hate how INACTIVE I am.  :O(  Something to work on.  I do like seeing the points add up though.  Right now I am only getting about 5 Activity Points a week from my normal lifestyle.  Like I said, something to really work on.  

Goal for the Week:  
Trying at least 1 new recipe!  Would love to read your favorites!!
Tracking EVERYTHING!

  1. I haven't had PB2, but I've been getting something similar... ProteinPlus Peanut Flour, it's unsweetened, so I can use any sweetener I want. I freaking love the stuff! And then I usually have a jar of Better n' Peanut Butter in the fridge for when I'm just too lazy to mix some up! LOL Again, it's not like "real" PB, but it does the trick for me!

    Glad you had a good week! Congrats on the great loss!

  2. 3 pounds?? WOOOOO!!!!

    So glad you're seeing the benefits of tracking. I have been an avid tracker since I joined and attribute my success directly to that! We also don't eat out much. I think I've been to Chick Fil A twice since the beginning of the year. Every other meal I've prepared myself. I pack my lunch every single day! While I know you can eat out and still be successful, I personally do better when I know exactly what I'm eating. There's so much guess work when you eat out! Plus it gets so expensive and these days we need to watch every penny!
