This felt like a "good" food day. I wasn't snacking or eating more than I should. I felt like it was all pretty healthy too. I do find that even though I don't eat sugar most of the time I am still eating sweet things. Today had less of that I think.
Breakfast- (E) Sprouted French Toast with a small side dish of Greek 0% yogurt and blueberries
Snack-(FP) Fat Stripping Frappa (about 3/4 of it)
Lunch-(S) Chicken Caesar Salad
Supper- (S) Bacon Cheeseburger (no roll) and Tossed Salad with Bleu Cheese dressing
Snack- (FP) a little pudding
This was not what I intended for today, but ended up being out for both lunch and supper. Supper was at Panera Bread. I ordered from the Low Carb menu. I chose a tossed salad as my side and it came with croutons?? I didn't eat them, but I thought that was weird...and the burger came with sweet pickles which I didn't know until I had one in my mouth...so I gave the others to my husband.

This was a pretty low calorie day but I wasn't overly hungry. I didn't like the salad dressing that I made at all which was a bummer since it was a big salad and I wasn't about to waste it.
After 7 1/2 weeks on THM I am finding that it just is not working for me. I am seriously considering going back to counting WW points and/or calories. I'll see how I feel in the morning about this.... It's not that I don't love THM. I do, but I am not losing weight and I just need to see some results. I haven't lost any weight in 2013 at all. I am going crazy!
When I woke up this morning I was still in a quandary about what I wanted to do. I literally stood in the kitchen unable to decide what to eat. I finally decided that I would start counting WW points while still eating the THM way to see what happens. I have to figure out a way to eat healthy and get the scale moving back down!
Breakfast- (S) 1 whole egg with 3 whites, 1/2 tsp coconut oil and 1 tsp. nutritional yeast with a side of zucchini sauteed in 1/2 tsp. coconut oil (4 Points Plus)
Lunch- (S) Large tossed salad with 1 T. light mayo, 2 T. balsamic vinegar, 2 T. parmesan cheese and salmon (4 Points Plus)
Supper- (FP) Vegetable Soup and Greek "Pudding" (Greek 0% yogurt and whey protein powder) with 4 fresh strawberries (5 Points Plus)
Snack-(S) Kale Chips (2 Points Plus) and a Cake in a Mug (6 Points Plus)
I still have 5 points left to eat but I feel like that would be too much food for tonight. Tomorrow I will try to eat more at each meal. I would have had a snack this afternoon, but I had a dr. appointment and ended up taking my daughter to work and did some quick grocery shopping while I was out (so I wasn't home for that.
As of now (only the first day) I am feeling very good about my decision to combine what I've learned from THM with Weight Watchers.
I am hoping to get back to running or at least exercising tomorrow. I went to my chiropractor today and my back should be in better shape now. It had been bothering me quite a bit.
Weight Watchers recommends 5 servings of fruits and vegetables, 2 tsp. healthy oils (they allow canola-ick and olive oil- I am allowing coconut and EVOO), 6 glasses of liquid, and 2 servings of non-fat or low fat dairy. They also recommend taking a multi-vitamin. I have met all of the healthy guidelines for today. I think I might come up with my own list.
workout- sprint intervals and walking
Breakfast-(S) 1 whole egg with 3 whites, 1/2 tsp coconut oil and 1 tsp. nutritional yeast with a side of zucchini and mushrooms sauteed in 1/2 tsp. coconut oil and some diced tomato (4 Points Plus)
Lunch-(E) Sweet Potato with 1 tsp. EVCO, Salmon, cukes, tomato and peppers, apple with pb2 (technically not a THM food but I have a lot of it) (6 Points Plus)
Snack- (FP) Fat Stripping Frappa (3 Points Plus)
Supper- Large Tossed Salad with 2 tsp. EVOO, balsamic vinegar, string cheese and 4 oz chicken (7 Points Plus)
Snack-(FP) Muffin in a Mug, 1/2 cup Greek 0% yogurt and Gwen's Berry syrup (4 Points Plus) since I had 2 points left and a new shipment of oat fiber I decided to make a plain muffin in a mug with all oat fiber and had it with 3 strawberries, a swirl of stevia sweetened maple syrup and FF Reddi Whip (1 Point Plus)
I have 1 point left today but I've eaten plenty I think.
Very,very happy that I am counting points again. I can't explain why this would make me so happy....but, it does.
I met my WW healthy guidelines for the day today.
No official workout but I did 20 push-ups, 10 squats and 20 sit ups.

Once again I am have points left over. I think it's because I had a huge supper, but it wasn't a lot of points. I should have put more oil in it. The shortcake I had tonight was SO good.
I ended up having a Cottage Berry Whip for 2 Points Plus and still went to bed with 2 points leftover.
