On Saturday, Ralph and I will be attending our grandson Patrick’s graduation from ROTC leadership training at Fort Dix, New Jersey. He did this two years ago and was selected again this year. We’re pretty proud of him! Because of that, I won’t be able to go to my regular Weight Watchers meeting.
Instead I went on Friday. There is only a weigh-in, not a meeting which I missed. Because it’s later in the day than my usual meeting, I really needed my coffee, but I didn’t eat breakfast. I probably should have held off with the coffee because I gained a half pound. On a regular Saturday, I have Nothing before weigh-in. I’m not letting it worry me, I know I’ve been on track this week and I will continue to be on track next week. I feel strong and confident now and that’s a good thing to hold on to. 🙂
I had a wonderful home-made egg salad sandwich for lunch on Thursday.
Not very colorful, but very tasty on a toasted sandwich thin.
Tried something a little different for dinner.
Sautéed up an onion and garlic, then added the rainbow salad I had gotten at the produce market last weekend. The blend was carrots, red cabbage, cauliflower and broccoli. Added a chopped tomato, veggie broth, crock pot black-eyed peas, some various spices (need to remember to write these down!) I served it over bulgur. I love making bulgur. This time I boiled the water (2 cups) in the microwave and then just added the bulgur (1 cup) to it. So easy! I let it sit in the warm microwave until it was all plumped up and perfect.
It was delicious and filling and you KNOW those are 2 of my favorite things!
For a snack later, I finally remembered I had cooked up pears and apples in the crock pot earlier in the week.
Topped with fat-free vanilla yogurt…absolutely delicous!
I am looking forward and Not looking forward to this trip on Saturday. We are so proud of Patrick for everything he’s accomplished. However, the temperature is expected to go over 100 and we’ll be out in an open field. I think I’m taking an umbrella and a hat with me to avoid the sun. I’ll pretend I’m as Southern lady. I’ll say “y’all” a lot. No one will notice… 😉
Happy Saturday! Pray I don’t succumb to sun stroke!!
