Weight Watchers Wednesday: Vol 6 + What I Eat in a Week

No comments
Buckle up for a long, long post! There's a lot to discuss.

I wanted to a do bit of a different Weight Watchers update because my weight is still up and down. Meal prepping and pilates are still helping but my willpower has just not improved. If I do cheat, I have been using my weekly points no matter how high the food is worth.

I need to be more inspired and maybe if I drop a few more pounds, and see some improvement I'll be more motivated. I'm stuck in this 3-4 pound ladder and I'm tired of it. UGH.

So, instead of the typical update, I'm going to break down what I eat in a week, but first... Weight Watchers announced HUGE changes on Monday Morning.

The company is no longer 'Weight Watchers' - it's now called WW USA. They have now rebranded as a wellness company because they are on their way to becoming one of the top wellness companies in the world. They've always been the top weight loss company in the world so it was time to change direction.

I'm unsure how I feel about the change; it doesn't seem like it will affect our weight loss journies too much but only add to it, which is exciting! Read here for more info!

Now for what I eat in a week... 

Breakfast: 

  • Instant Quaker Oatmeal in Original Flavor *I LOVE oatmeal. It has always been my go-to breakfast and to add some flavor, I add a few dark chocolate chips
  • Egg Muffins: I make my own little egg muffins with biscuits, eggs, and bacon. They are so delicious and really fill me up. I count them as only 1-1.5 points and it seems to be working!

Lunch

Lunch is my biggest issue because I hate eating lunch. When I'm at work I put off eating lunch as much as possible -- sometimes eating as late as 4 PM. I'm not sure why I hate it but I think the main reason is that I never know what to eat. I finally have some sort of routine when it comes to an at work lunch.
  • Cauliflower Rice + Trader Joe's Mini Chicken Cilantro Wontons or Chicken Potstickers
  • Trader Joe's Guilt Free Mac & Cheese
  • Trader Joe's Cauliflower Gnocchi with a touch of TJ's Lite Mozzarella Cheese
  • Steamfresh Veggie Pasta (a new discovery that I think need it's own post!) 

Dinner

Dinner was always an easy, healthy meal for me because of my mom and sister. They are chronic healthy eaters so my dinners are never as bad as any other meal. It was easiest to transition to Weight Watchers dinners and helped that at the beginning my mom did Weight Watchers with me.

*We usually stick to meat-based dinners as my mom and sister like to stay away from pasta.
  • Chicken Patties
  • Roasted Shrimp
  • Steak 
  • Mrs. Pauls Fish Filets 
  • Pork Chops *not a common occurrence
  • Hamburgers

Side Dishes

  • Uncle Ben's Ready Rice
  • Golden Vegetable Pancakes
  • Steamfresh Veggie Pasta (if I didn't eat it for lunch)

Snacks

  • 20 Synders Mini Pretzels
  • Pirates Booty
  • Angie's Boom Chicka Pop
  • Annie's Cheddar Bunnies or Squares
  • Annie's Chocolate Bunny Grahams
  • Multi-grain Chips *I forgot the brand and don't have any in my house right now*

So yes... that's just a rundown of my weekly meals. I tend to be a creature of habit and eat the same things time and time again, which gets annoying and why I get frustrated. That is the life of a picky eater on Weight Watchers!

If you have any advice on better meals, please let me know!
