WIAW~My Memory Card Ate My Food

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.

Peas and Crayons

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! 😉

  1. hey! i had pizza and ice cream one day last week, too!! yours looks really good…is that tomato on there? sorry about the disappearing photos!
    have a great day, fran! i am off to toronto!!

  2. Nobody’s perfect and you have to indulge sometimes. Maybe you should try your hand at homemade pizza…you get all the excitement, but since you control the toppings (hello veggies) and the ingredients, none of the guilt. That way you can have your pizza and eat it too. Just a thought. Hope you have a great day Fran.

  3. Ah pizza. I love pizza too – and my husband makes the best.

    And I too like always having at least one soup option in my fridge / freezer. I’m thinking soup may actually sound good today for lunch! 🙂

  4. I feel that way all of the time. Like I could have sworn that there should have been other pictures on there!

    I think we all need a trash day once in a while. Reminds us why we eat the way we do 🙂

    And I second Meghan’s comment above for making homemade pizza! All Recipes has a great Master Pizza recipe that uses rapid rise yeast and you could replace the all purpose flour with whole wheat or something. My family loves it. We’ve used it for personal pizzas and even calzones!

  5. I haven’t had pizza in ages, but I’ve been craving it all week–and then I see you posting about it, of course ;D I think that means it need to happen on my “off” day this weekend.

  6. I don’t eat pizza often but when Glenn & I go out I usually get it for the kids and always have to sneak a bite or two, it’s just so dang good!!!

    You have a hungry memory card (; the pizza looks goooooooood!

  8. We all go off track now and then (especially at weekends!) It’s not a big deal if it’s just for a day or two. Sounds like you’re already back on track so good on you for moving forward.
    Hope you’re having a great week xx

  9. Haha! Love the title of this post. WordPress loves to eat all my food, too.;) Happy WiAW Fran!
