I’m back to my Monday night meetings. I am not sure how I feel about this. I loved Friday morning meetings with my sister and that group was so lively and talkative.
School is starting so it is back to Monday night meetings I go.
I weighed in this week and gained 2.2 pounds.
I was expecting a gain due to the fact that:
a) I went from weighing in in the morning to night
b) I had “real” clothes on…not just workout pants and a t-shirt
c) I had eaten that day.
Apparently this meeting has started something new called a “Traveling Tracker.” They have taken a Weight Watchers 3 month tracker (it looks like a little notebook) and they are passing it around to a new person each week. Guess who ended up with the Traveling Tracker?!? You guessed it…Me! Apparently every person who has had this tracker has lost weight the week they had it. No pressure, right?!?
So far it has kept me on track today. I guess tracking really does work in terms of mindful eating. No more shoving it in your mouth without counting or thinking. So far so good!
This week we had a summer recipe swap. Each member brought a recipe to give to someone else. I took a recipe for banana ice cream (if you are anywhere on Pinterest, I am sure you have seen this). I ended up with one with brussel sprouts. Can’t say I will make the recipe I brought home. We are not big brussel sprout fans.
However, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to remind you of a few of my favorite recipes.
My all time favorite is my Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Protein Shake
It tastes like a milkshake and I love it for after a good workout!
My next favorite is a breakfast item: Cake Batter Energy Bars
These are perfect for on the go snacks/meals.
It is summer so I have to share my summer berry trifle.
This is the perfect light summer dessert. It is one of my family’s favs!
The last one I want to share with you is my banana split pie.
LOVE this dessert too!
These are all from my blog in the recipes section! I hope you will check them out, make them, and tell me what you think after you do!
What is YOUR favorite summer recipe? We all love getting new recipes so please share!
