I want to thank you all for the wonderful feedback I've been receiving on my WW content. It's awesome to find that so many of you are also on WW!
||Weekly Weigh In||
Ugh. So I'm ashamed to say that I didn't lose any weight this week. However, I do know why! I had a bad weekend. A very very bad weekend, lol. We went to my in-laws to celebrate my brother in-law's birthday. There was cake, and bbq brisket... I didn't count my points and I also indulged in some amazing cake. Then at work on Sunday they had lunch catered and we had deli sandwiches, potato salad, and pasta salad. I had more of the salads than I should have...
The GOOD news is, I know exactly why I didn't lose weight and I can recognize that it was my own fault. I just over indulged on very naughty food choices haha! Well I'm back at home this week and going strong with counting my points and making the RIGHT choices.
My current favorite snack is any vegetable lightly dipped in the Bolthouse Farms Cilantro Avocado Yogurt dressing. 1Tbsp is only 1sp! A little goes a long way too because it has a very robust flavor. This dressing is available at Wal-Mart for $3.48 which isn't bad if you're considering how little you will use at a time measuring it out!
I'm still loving the chicken sausages from Aldi. Last week I had Spinach Feta, this week I purchased Italian seasoned chicken sausage. They are $2.99 for 4 and 4sp for one and 7sp for two.
Still loving cherries! I've found that in my town Wal-Mart Neighborhood Market has the best price and quality of cherries. I have also been enjoying seedless watermelons. Our Neighborhood Market had them 2 for $5 this week.
Last night I made this dish. I'm not sure if the picture is overly appetizing, haha! It is to me though because I know how yummy it was! This was my first time making spaghetti squash and I think I might be addicted.
I basically used THIS recipe I found on Pinterest but modified it a little. It's essentially sauteed mushrooms and shrimp over spaghetti squash. I didn't use lemons in mine like the recipe called for because I basically had the squash and shrimp and just searched for recipes on Pinterest. It was fantastic though. We really enjoyed it. The original recipe I linked calculated it at 9sp for a serving. Since I didn't use the wine and some of the other ingredients she did, mine came to 8sp a serving. I had 2 servings though because I worked all day and hadn't eaten except for some veggies and Cilantro Avocado dressing while I filmed a video for YouTube. Speaking of which... here's my Weight Watchers Planner video for this week!
Let me know what else you guys would like to see from me on Wednesdays. I'm really REALLY contemplating creating a second YouTube channel completely devoted to WW. I'm thinking grocery haul ideas since I'm a huge Aldi shopper. I think that's what gets me about WW. So so so many people think they have to shop at Trader Joe's or Wholefoods exclusively. Well I don't have either of those where I live, we have a strict food budget, and 90% of my food comes from Aldi. I make it work and I'm succeeding just fine. I kind of want to develop a platform to share my budget friendly WW meal ideas and grocery hauls. Of course I could do this in my weekly Weight Watchers Wednesday posts too I suppose. I don't know if I'm consistent enough in my day to start doing a "what I ate" video every single day. Mainly because half the time I don't even remember to take pictures of my food!
Now I'm rambling... Think it over and let me know what medium you prefer. Would you like more detailed blog posts or YouTube videos?
Thanks for stopping by this week's WW Wednesday!
