Trim Healthy Mama-Week 9


This is my 9th week of Trim Healthy Mama.  I am really excited about the possibilities for this week.  If you read my post last week you know that I have started combining THM with what I learned in Weight Watchers.  Can't wait to see how it goes!

I went to a wedding today and basically ate a few berries and tomatoes to hold me over until I got home.  They served appetizers/sandwiches and there really wasn't anything that  I wanted that I felt like I could stay on plan with.  I probably should have packed a snack.  I didn't think we'd be there that long so I didn't.

I am definitely trying to make sure that I eat lots of healthy fat and protein.  I did use a couple of my 49 weekly points today and that is what they are there for.  My week ends tomorrow so I probably didn't use enough of them and should plan to use more for good oils this coming week. I am finding that it is fairly easy to use points for EV coconut oil (EVCO) and EVOO.  When I was previously on WW I saved a lot of my points for microwave popcorn, fiber bars and even ice cream.  Now, I am trying to make much healthier choices and feel much more satisfied.

Sunday-

Breakfast-(FP) 1 cup 0% Greek yogurt, 1 scoop protein powder and berries (5 Points Plus)
Lunch-(S) Tossed Salad, salmon, 1 T. EVOO, 1 T. balsamic vinegar (5 Points Plus) and Skinny Chocolate (8 Points Plus)
Supper-(E) Vegetable Soup, 2 oz homemade sourdough bread, string cheese (5 Points Plus)
Snack-(FP) Strawberry Shortcake (1 Point Plus)
Joseph's Crackers with Light Laughing Cow Cheese (4 Points Plus)

Monday-

So, so excited today!  The scale moved for my first new weight loss of 2013.  When I started THM I gained a couple of pounds and just stayed there.  At my weigh in this morning I was down 3.8 lbs from where I was last Monday!

Breakfast-(FP) 1 Cup 0% Greek Yogurt, 1 scoop protein powder, 1/2 cup strawberries (5 Points Plus)
Lunch-(S) Tossed Salad, salmon, 1 T. EVOO, 1 T. balsamic vinegar (5 Points Plus)
Snack- Rootbeer Ice (0 Points plus)
Supper-(S) 6 oz BBQ Chicken with homemade BBQ sauce, Green Beans, 1 tsp. butter (7 Points Plus) and Skinny Chocolate (8 Points)
Snack-(FP)Strawberry Shortcake (1 Point)


Tuesday-
 The scale was down yet again today.  I know this can't continue but I am enjoying it while it lasts!  I am getting so close to the 100 lbs lost mark!  I can't wait.


Breakfast-(FP) 1 Cup 0% Greek Yogurt, 1 scoop protein powder, 1/2 cup strawberries (5 Points Plus)
Lunch-(E) Broiled Salmon, Sweet Potato, 1 tsp EVCO, cucumber and tomato (6 Points Plus) Cottage Berry Whip (2 Point Plus)
Supper-(Crossover) Slice of Pizza and Caesar Salad (dressing on side, fork dipped) (12 Points Plus)
Snack- (FP) Strawberry Shortcake (1 Point Plus)

Today we took our kids to a living historical museum.  It is an 1800s seaport.  Anyway, I was so exhausted I just knew I needed an E meal (Ha I typed e-mail the first time.)  So, I decided on a sweet potato....so, so yummy. I definitely felt better after that.

Wednesday-

I was up a little today on the scale but wasn't surprised or upset by it.  I feel confident that it will go down again.  Today I went out for a run/walk with my Jeff Galloway 5K app.  It was a perfect day for it and felt SOOOO good to get out and run again.


Breakfast-(S) Egg, 3 Egg Whites, 1 tsp. EVCO, zucchini (5 Points Plus)
Snack-(FP) Cucumber, Cherry Tomatoes, String Cheese (1 Points Plus)
Lunch- (S) Tuna, peppers and 1 T. light mayo with a Joseph's Lavash (5 Points Plus)
Snack-(S) Skinny Chocolate (8 Points Plus)
Supper-(FP) Zucchini Noodles with 2 T. parmesan cheese and 1 T. grass fed butter (4 Point Plus), (FP) 1 Cup 0% Greek Yogurt, 1 scoop protein powder, 1/2 cup strawberries (5 Points Plus)
Snack-(FP) Strawberry Shortcake (1 Point Plus)

Today I went to a funeral.  I packed some cucumber sticks, cherry tomatoes, and a string cheese.  So glad I did.  I ate it in the car in between the graveside service and the reception...there wasn't ONE thing there that I could have eaten.  Sausage and potatoes, pizza, meatballs, potato salad, macaroni salad and ...nary a vegetable to be found!  I ate when I got home.

I also decided to  use a few of my weekly points to get some nice EVCO and butter in my diet.  Hopefully it will pay off.  

I am noticing that I really don't crave junk food lately.  I was always a cookie/candy girl.  I do like my skinny chocolate but really that is health food.  I am much more satisfied eating this way.  I'm also not afraid to use more of my points earlier in the day.  Prior to THM, I always saved a lot of points for my evening snack.  

Thursday-

Breakfast-(S) Oat Fiber Bread French Toast made with 1 egg and 2 whites, 1 tsp butter, a ladle of Gwen's berry syrup and some stevia sweetened maple syrup  (4 Points Plus)
Lunch-(S) Tossed Salad, salmon, 1 T. EVOO, 1 T. balsamic vinegar (5 Points Plus), 1 cup yogurt with berries (3 Points Plus)
Supper-(S) 4 oz grilled chicken, cauli rice with 1 tsp. grass fed butter (5 Points Plus), Skinny Chocolate (8 Points Plus)
Snack-Strawberry Shortcake (1 Point Plus), Kale Chips with EVCO (3 Points Plus)

What a great week!  Couldn't be happier....OK I would be happier if I reached that 100 lb milestone but it will come.  It was also great to start running this week again too.  I lost somewhere around 5 lbs in the last week and a half....after almost 4 months of no loss at all.

I am so happy to find this. I recognized your previous "diet" as the one i had been on. I lost 45 pounds but when i started eating carbs again and didn't follow the protocol i started putting the weight back on. I was excited about finding THM because my friends have had such good results but I am not seeing the results, I was sure it had to be related to the high protein diet i had been on. I will be following this to help guide me as I am not familiar with the WW points. Congrats!!
