Week Flying By

by Alison on January 8, 2012

I have come to the conclusion it will be a while before I am posting every day and probably longer before I can keep up with all the blogs that I love.

I weighed in on Saturday and lost 4.2 pounds.  It’s amazing what happens when you actually pay some attention to detail.

I planned to get back to blogging and already so many challenges.  Today one dog had surgery and the other had X-rays that found massive arthritis in her spine and several nearly collapsed disks 🙁 She has been in alot of pain the last week and in to see the emergency vet and the regular vet to try to figure it out.  So now she is on a ton of meds to try to get it under control.  Drake’s surgery was to remove a lypoma and probably nothing in the long run but for now he is mopey and needs a ton of attention.

So although I ate pretty well yesterday and today I didn’t journal so I do not have exact numbers.

I have been doing Stroller Strides for my workouts and I plan to skip Wednesday, I just don’t feel I can leave the dogs yet that soon, Friday Ben will be home with them so I’ll be back in the swing on Friday.


Breakfast Oatmeal with appples and cinnamon, glass of orange juice

Lunch–Cheese and Beer Soup

Dinner–Four Cheese Baked Penne

Snack– nonfat latte


Breakfast–non fat caramel macchiato, bacon breakfast sandwich

Lunch–Sausage, Bulgar and Kale

Dinner–Biz’s Chicken Tikka Masala, such a good easy recipe, and brown rice

I’m baaaaaaaack

by Alison on December 31, 2011

Okay, I have been absent way, way, way too long but I’m back and ready to recommit.

So it’s the final day of 2011 and it’s been a pretty wild year.  I had a baby and she kind of changed my life, rather a lot really.  She is not a fan of napping so time to myself is few and far between, so blogging is one of the casualties.  I have decided that I will find time to blog again as I really do feel it was a key to my weight loss success and I need some of that success again.

I stopped into a weightwatchers meeting this morning  and picked up the new PointsPlus 2012 material, I haven’t had a chance to go through it yet, but plan to right after I finish this post.

Breakfast–Tully’s sausage breakfast sandwich, non-fat vanilla latte

Lunch–Greek Yogurt, rice krispies and maple syrup, banana

Dinner–Four Cheese Baked Penne


I’ll get points values up soon.  One thing that I find hard with Ashley is cooking, she does not like to sit and play quietly in the evening so if I don’t prep dinner in advance she is a nightmare.  She is however an awesome eater and LOVED the baked penne.

Okay now for the confession my weight is way up, today I weighed in at 215.6 but not for long!

February 21st Food and Exercise Journal

February 22, 2011

Tweet When I’m eating healthy, it’s actually hard to eat all of my extra points, I didn’t come close today (until I added a soy vanilla latte, and then a brownie).  My sweet tooth since the baby was born is insane. I finally got out and got some exercise I walked 2 miles with Ashley […]

February 20th Food and Exercise Journal

February 21, 2011

Tweet I have recommitted!  Pretty easy with 14 extra points plus for nursing! I didn’t get any activity in because Ashley wanted to nurse ALL DAY, she spent over 8 hours nursing and didn’t go very long without a snack, it was exhausting!  I admit the nursing points are nice for full fat cheeses! Despite […]

Ashley Nolan has arrived

February 11, 2011

Tweet Ashley Nolan finally arrived on January 22, 2011.  She was 8 pounds and 2 ounces and 20.3 inches long! She preferred sleeping to eating (so not like her mother or father!) and lost more than they wanted her to.  She is almost back to her birth weight at 3 weeks and I’m finally ready […]

38 weeks….

January 10, 2011

Tweet So I haven’t posted much, what can I say I haven’t been motivated much. I have been cooking up a storm.  I spent most of November cooking double batches, finishing one to eat that night and freezing the other to eat after the baby arrives, by the way I might be 38 weeks and […]
