Linking Up today with Visible Monday & Watch What I am Wearing

I find that I do much better staying on a healthy path if I keep my breakfasts and lunches rotating between a few tried and true favorites…So what exactly are those few options you may ask?  I am offering full disclosure of my journey so here is what works for me..


This shirt is not flatter to my midsection in this pose, but did not look like that in real life!!!

Smoothies– made with Greek Yogurt and Fruit.. I buy large bags of frozen fruit from BJ’s and Sam’s Club Typically Strawberries or a Tropical Fruit Variety.. To this I add Flaxseed meal and 1tbsp Olive Oil and either Truvia or Agave for sweetner.

Yogurt and Fruit– I don’t like the sour flavor of yogurt so opt for Yoplait Whips which are twice the points as other light versions, but the only way I can ingest it without if feeling like I am eating medicine and just tolerating it..  In addition I will have either a banana or grapes, or watermelon.

Hard boiled Eggs and Fruit

2-  Feta & Veggie Frittatas  and maybe a glass of milk.. On other days I opt for green tea and add fruit. I switch out the peppers and scallions for mushrooms and onions as I don’t like peppers…

Slice of Whole Wheat Bread, Peanut Butter topped with bannana and green tea.   Other Options here are Better than Peanut Butter or something I am wanting to try, but haven’t as of yet, Almond Butter…

Omelet w/mushrooms, onions, low fat cheese and fruit with green tea.  This is the least one I use as I only do so when I have pre cooked mushrooms and onions in the frig…


Since this is not a diet, (it is a lifestyle change), it is important to stay true to your own tastes and put in place real life things that  can become a new habit.  I prefer quick items for breakfast and that dictates my choices.  In my weight gaining years, I ate cereal for breakfast , my favorites were Raisin Bran or Wheat Chex.  Not terrible choices but I had to drop those options because I was eating double serving sizes , which ends up starting off the day with almost  half the amount of points WW recommends for me….I don’t miss it at all and feel that getting the probiotics, protein and fruit or vegetables is more valuable.


Gratitude:  I am grateful to my husband for telling me the story of a 13yr old boy in the news who killed himself after experiencing bullying at school(we are praying for his family and friends) and using it to thank me for homeschooling our youngest child and keeping him out of middle school… I am grateful for my own strength to push past all those naysayers  who questioned my resolve to home school.   I am grateful to my 17 yr old who found pictures on an old computer and saved them on a zip drive and shared his discovery with the rest of us(we had so much  fun going through the memories).   I am grateful that Connor found a book that interested him and read  without me having to tell him to(huge progress for a child who was falsely diagnosed with a reading disability!!!) 

Dear Readers, Any questions are comments are welcomed.  Next Monday I will write about lunches, so be sure to follow me if you aren’t doing so already!  I will continue daily with what I ate for each day…Wednesdays I will post my WW meeting results.  Thanks for your support and hope this inspires you to make even just one change for a healthier lifestyle.  Now off to exercise!!!!

Final thoughts, If I am aiming for Full Disclosure, I need to include my daily healthy guidelines some from WW some are my own (  I will not be going into the WW point system too much as I feel it is irresponsible since that number varies  depending on your age and weight and I am at the lowest end)  

Dairy- 2-3 servings

Fruits & Veggies- 4 -5

Protein- 2-3

Healthy oil-2tbs

Probiotics -2

Green Tea-2

Lunch: (on the run) 2 wedges Laughing Cow cheese wedges & Grapes

Afternoon Snack: Yogurt

Dinner-   Chicken wrap- made with 50 Calorie wheat tortilla by Smart Delicious and stuffed with Chiken, mushrooms onions. lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. (Note this torilla is small but I just fold it in half and stuff it full,not something I would eat in public!!!! LOL) I  Still had 5 points left and needed more vegetables,  so ate more salad greens with Lt Italian dressing & olive oil plus 2 pt dessert of  Newtons Fruit thins which are just 2 pts for 3 cookies…  Yeah stayed within my points and ate all the healthy guidelines!  

SundayMealsBreakfast:  Smoothie and today I added my green tea!

Lunch: Sharp Cheddar cheese stick , pre -cooked Fajita steak strips & apple 

Afternoon Snack- Newtons Thins & Milk

Dinner:  BBQ chicken w/ bacon, tomato & cheese- a  favorite of my family, I use to eat it as a sandwhich, but now just make it in individual corning ware… added olive oil to bbq sauce to get that in…
