Weight Watchers Wednesday :: Let's Get Healthy



Welcome back to another week of Weight Watchers Wednesday!  I've realized this week as I was thinking about this post that I'm much more focused on my overall health and improving myself from the inside out than I am at actually losing weight for vanity reasons, even though I'm still hoping that will be the byproduct. 

I'm reading about overall body health, trying to drink more water and just put good in so I feel better.  That's really what the theme of this week has been for me.   

Weekly Stats:

Starting Weight:  158
Current Weight:  153.2

Weight the day after my 3 day cleanse was 153 (last week).  I figured I would gain a little back after I reintroduced solids back into my diet.  I was up to 155 after the weekend with some cheats so I'm happy that I used Monday and Tuesday to be super strict and get back on track. 


Successes worth celebrating: 
  • Surviving the 3 day cleanse
  • Eating {mostly} good while we had company and during the Superbowl...I said no to pizza and enchiladas!
  • Taking my first shot of Apple Cider Vinegar  (Had to add a little something to it...thanks to my SIL Stephie for the recipe!)


What was hard last week:  Sitting through meals with my family and not eating what I really wanted instead opting for healthier choices.  It's always hard, however I felt MUCH better afterwards.  My body hasn't been hitting that afternoon dip lately even though I'm getting the same amount of sleep at night. 


What I'm focusing on this week: 
  • More sleep
  • Small portions
  • Track everything that goes in my body
  • Increase my intake of lemon water instead of coffee and snacking
  • Saving my "splurges" and extra points for Saturday when I'm hosting a baby shower Saturday at lunch at one of my favorite restaurants and Saturday night when we are having a dinner date night with another couple and I'll likely enjoy a glass of vino!  
  • More daily steps and getting back to yoga!
  • Taking 15 minutes a day to meditate and just be still

Meals I'm Eating This Week:
Egg & Avocado Toast
Warm Lemon Water {obviously not a meal, but great for in between}
My Fit Foods Lean Lemon Turkey and Cilantro Lime Turkey for quick, work lunches
Turkey Taco Casserole
Asian Chicken Salad
Turkey & Avocado Wrap on Whole Wheat Tortilla
Grilled Chicken Salad with cucumber, tomato and hard-boiled egg

    1. Hey Ashlee! I did two teaspoons of ACV, 1 cup of fresh squeezed grapefruit juice (it ended up being 1 whole grapefruit, but I was hand squeezing) and 1 teaspoon of honey. It still wasn't yummy, but I didn't gag or anything so that's good!
