Mom on the Go & My Eating Right Strategy

Posted on: March 12, 2015

The plans for the day were to go bowling and then 

to head off to Cloud 9 for trampoline jumping…..

How does a Mom dress for that?  


Well this Mom, decided Old Navy Leggings and a F21 tunic were in order…

I initially had my socks tucked nicely so they didn’t show, but hurriedly put them on after 

Cloud 9 as we were all hungry and heading off for lunch…


I definitely need to get some more no-show socks, as Spring is on it’s way…

Time to pack away the boots and have fun with shoe variety, which after winter, 

I always look forward to doing. 

Of course, I then miss the boots by September…


Notice the grey rubber bracelet I forgot to take off from Cloud 9…

Dear Readers,

Imagine my delight at having dropped 2.5 pounds over the last four days of getting back on track?

It certainly made me very cautious when we went out to lunch after our trampoline jumping… I was quite hungry and Dear Readers, Chik Fil A sandwiches are my guilty pleasure… Even in weight loss mode I made that 11 point sandwich fit.  Today, I just couldn’t see undoing my good work of the week and seriously debated being very good and ordering the grilled chicken nuggets and fruit.. However I saw the 340 calorie option of the Grilled Cool Wrap and went with that instead.. I didn’t know the point value but guessed it was 7-8 and I was right it is 8 WW points.  

I had planned a very low 4 point dinner of chicken with sauteed mushrooms, onions, artichokes and spinach,  so well on track for the day.

Which brings me to the point I wanted to make today…

One way I’ve been successful in eating right for the week is to prepare a large amount of the vegetables I mentioned in my dinner plans.. These four veggies:  mushrooms, onions, artichokes and spinach all mixed together are very versatile and make my meal planning for this week very easy…

I use it in 

Egg in A cup

Vegetable & Feta Frittatas 



Over diced Grilled Chicken 

Over diced Grilled Chicken with diced tomato and tomato sauce with ital seasoning.

Over SEEDs of Change brand Quinoa & Brown Rice ( I find this at BJ’s two servings per pk, 7 WW points) 

Having zero point items precooked really keeps me on track…

Other weeks I make zero point soup, which I do with zucchini, yellow squash, cabbage, mushrooms and diced  canned tomatoes and of course the chicken stock.. I also add Italian Seasoning. 

Another zero point option I do up for a week to keep on track is by making my Father’s casserole of baking yellow squash in tomato sauce and diced tomatoes, again with Italian dressing and Parmesan Cheese put on when I serve it.  I love this as an easy side dish for lunch or dinner and just add some form of protein to round it out.  


I am grateful for a fun day and getting exercise with our home-school group. 

I am grateful that my son home from college joined us for the fun.

I am grateful that my son’s migraine responded to meds and he had quick relief.

I am grateful that I am motivated to get back on track, as that is the key to success. 

I am so grateful to my parents for their investment in me and for teaching me to love myself and to keep positive.
