Do you exercise when you feel like it or put it on the calendar? Doing the latter makes it more likely to happen. Our Weight Watchers leader passed out a blank monthly calendar page and suggested we schedule our activity for the month and put it on the fridge (or somewhere else you’ll see daily).
She asked what did we want to do exercise wise that hasn’t happened this summer. Some of the items on the list were:
What do you want to do this summer that hasn’t happened yet?
Last weekend I made a meal plan and we followed it 100%.
Breakfasts included oatmeal, smoothies, bacon and egg sandwich, veggie omelet and Jimmy Dean Delight Turkey Sausage Bowls.
Lunches always included Weight Watchers zero point soup and usually a sandwich with some fruit.
This shrimp, zucchini and tomato dish was a new recipe I found on WeightWatchers.com. I served it over brown rice and it was a hit! Other nights we had meatloaf, roasted chicken, chicken caesar salad, and of course Prime Rib for my husband’s birthday.
It was one of those weeks when the weight loss showed up on the scale at the right time. I was down 1.4 pounds bringing the total weight loss to:
I was very happy and couldn’t get the smile off my face all morning!
All our meals are planned for the week along with exercise sessions. I have two milestones that are tied to the next pound lost so I have my fingers crossed it will be this Saturday.
How did your week towards great health go?
Congratulations on a great week! I joined Weight Watchers last week and I am really loving their Simple Start plan. I also meal planned for the week especially since I am now budgeting my money, the two need to go hand in hand. I’m excited for my first weigh in tomorrow. Congrats on the loss! So happy for you.

Patty, I should give Simple Start a try. I do primarily eat power foods. Can’t wait to see how your first week went!
Great week! 🙂
