Ready For Success

I’m hoping for a good result when I get on the scale at Weight Watchers today.  I’ve been working hard all week and I’ve even been able to control my night-time snacking to a large degree so I’m hopeful! Of course you can never tell so stay tuned.

Friday I got back to an old favorite for breakfast.

I love the combo of yogurt with Fiber One.  It’s sweet and creamy and crunchy and over all good for me.  This is actually the Aldi version of Fiber One.  It’s over $2 less that the brand name and tastes the same.  I’ve almost finished the Shoprite brand of Greek yogurt.  I’m going to stop there to restock today.  So much less expensive than Chobani.

I actually got some cleaning done around here on Friday, some cabinets re-ordered to make life simpler…that sort of thing.  It feels good to accomplish things like that.

Had time to finish the book I was reading.

Animal Dreams

Animal Dreams by Barbara Kingsolver.  I really enjoyed it.  I think I especially liked it because it was set in the Southwest and even though the town in it is fictitious and in Arizona, it made me think of New Mexico.

Late afternoon brought a cup of tea, I love pairing green tea with another tea.  This lemon ginger from Bigelow is very good.  And a new book.  Celestial Navigation by Anne Tyler.  I’ve read a lot of her books.  Interesting so far.

Dinner was approached with an eye toward weigh in.

Romaine, celery, red bell pepper, plum tomato, Aldi’s 2% cheese this time in a Mexican blend and 1 cup of home-made black beans.  I’m back to making my own dressing. 1 tablespoon each of olive oil, balsamic vinegar and honey. 1 healthy squirt of sriracha sauce and about  1 1/2 tablespoons of water to extend it (I make a lot of salad, I need a lot of dressing!)

So delicious!  Kept me satisfied for the night.

I’m off to Weight Watchers in about an hour.  I’m looking for some good news and I’ve got more projects in mind for this afternoon, so it should be a busy day.

Happy Saturday!

  1. I hope everything goes well with your Weight Watchers meeting today! 🙂 ❤

    I wish we had fiber one cereal here! When I lived in the US, I loved adding it to yogurt, too. 🙂

  2. oh, that dressing sounds divine. I’ll have to try that this week. and dressing up green tea sounds genius. so much better with something fruity going on.

    sorry I missed you this morning. I did not have an eye on the weigh-in last night. yoga in a few minutes, though! 🙂

  3. I hope weight watchers worked out for you this morning. I’ve been buying the Trader Joe brand of greek yogurt…so far stop and shop doesn’t have its own version (that i know of…) but I keep looking for cheap and good! Not always easy, as you know!

  4. Fingers crossed for a good WI! 😀

  5. I was just about to say hope WW went well, then saw your reply above… 0.8’s hardly anything, especially if you’re under goal?!
    Animal Dreams looks great; that cover picture would definitely make me pick it up… I’m re-reading the Hunger Games for the umpteenth time and looking forward to seeing the film! Hope you had a great Saturday 🙂

    • Hey, Elle, I think you might enjoy Animal Dreams and Yes, the cover was part of the reason I picked it up. Are you on Goodreads? We should be friends on there,it’s such fun to know what everyone’s reading. I want to see the HG film, not sure I have anyone to go with me, certainly not Ralph! 😉

  6. Nice going with the night snacking! That’s tough!!!!!!!!!!!! Hope you’re having a good weekend!
