I just love being part of What I Ate Wednesday hostessed by Jenn at Peas & Crayons. I try to participate each week even when I have no food to share! I do have some to share, but I’ve got to say, I think my memory card ate my food. I was certain I took photos of more than what I can find. I know in the past there has been operator error involved, but I swear…this time it’s not me.
Regardless of this tiny technical difficulty, I’m ready and here we go.
All last week, Ralph had been saying how much he would like pizza. I try to control myself during the week and pizza is Not part of my plan. I kept telling him that if he was patient, we could have it Saturday after my weigh in and then I could get back on track. We didn’t wait long and were there rather early for lunch but nevertheless it was delicious.
Wish I could say this was all I ate, but alas…it was not. It was however just delicious and we polished it off in short order.
I have no photos of the ice cream I ate later, probably should have done a photo. Not photos of a few other snacks either. Saturday was a day to teach me a lesson I think. My body does Not like when I eat all crazy and off track anymore. My body likes when I eat right and make good choices.
Sunday morning, I was thinking only of getting back on track. Breakfast at the diner? Ok, but I was in control now.
A mushroom and spinach omelette. No cheese in it because it’s really hard to decide how much they’ve used and I don’t really need it. I requested the spaghetti cheese and shook some on. I got the cheese-y taste without the Points. Cottage cheese on the side in place of potatoes helps to pump up my protein. Rye toast, dry please. A little jelly added makes it taste just as good.
Sunday morning prior to leaving for breakfast, I chopped up a quick crock pot full of my version of Weight Watchers veggie soup. It always helps me to stay on track. Doing it in the crock pot means I don’t have to think much about it after I start it.
The soup in its “pure” version-veggies only counts for 0 Points on WW. I added a half cup of cottage cheese to add some protein and only 2 points. After microwaving, I topped it with some dried basil and Locatelli cheese, 1 Point but a real flavor boost.
I have to admit, I was feeling off track for the weekend, but now I’m feeling better. I’m writing everything down and being mindful, as I should be.
Sorry I don’t have more photos today, but…What I Ate Wednesday is fun regardless of how many photos I have. Be sure to check out Peas & Crayons and see some more wonderful food to drool for. Leave some comments, too.
Happy WIAW! Note to Self: Remember to take more photos, next week!
