Weight Watcher Wednesday

On Thursday! Sorry I am behind - this flooring remodel has me all out of whack. But yesterday I did go and weigh in I am up +.8 It could have been numerous things, maybe the elephant ear and the mound of thai noodles at the antique fair. I think it could have been worse if I hadn't been exercising.

Today I want to talk about eating breakfast. Something that I haven't been doing lately and can be a direct correlation as to why I haven't been losing one to two pounds a week. (let's put the elephant ear aside...) When I first started weight watchers I was great about breakfast. Either Kashi cereal or hard boiled egg and thomas muffin. After meeting with my nutritionist earlier in the year she recommended my breakfast smoothie:
  • 2 heaping tablesppons of whole fat yogurt (i use Nancy's)
  • Handful of berries (I use frozen blueberries)
  • 1 to 3/4 scoop of Whey Protein Powder do no use Soy based (I use Designer Whey vanilla from Trader Joes)
  • Dash of water
  • 1 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (I use the organic one from Trader Joes)
  • optional: 1 scoop of Greens First (I use this to get my daily veggies and fruit in, plus it helps my skin!)
Blend away and then stir in 1 teaspoon of Psyllium. Drink - don't let this sit. This fills me up and I really need to force myself to eat lunch. This is what I need to get back to and when I am traveling I need to do my Advocare shakes. So the plan this week is to drink the breakfast smoothie and journal!

End of Day Two - Flooring
This is what we all feel like at this point. Doggies are prisoner in my office only let out for bio breaks.

With the carpet done down stairs the guys have moved onto the wood floor upstairs. This is the updstairs landing:

The hardwood that we are using is from Shaw (of course) it is an engineered hardwood and it is called Grand Canyon. The website is not showing the color we chose - ours is very dark with almost a black stain to it.

It doesn't look like they will be done in time for Kirk's party - I am so glad that I had it off site this year! :) whew -
