Food of the Week

thai soup and salad

I’ve been trying to incorporate more vegetables into my diet – I don’t know what that continues to be so hard because I actually like them. I ate out at Noodles this week (not the healthiest of choices), but I kept it light with the Asian Thai Curry Soup (yum!!!) and the cucumber and tomato fresh salad. It was really good and I felt good about the choices I made. The meal I had was 16 WW points (regular size soup) or you could order the smaller size soup and salad for 9 WW points. I like that the Weight Watchers Mobile App has restaurants in it so I can literally scroll through and know what I am eating before I order it, eliminating hesitation on what is healthier to order or not. I had a big salad at home that night for dinner with fresh tomatoes from the garden since lunchtime was heavier on points.

Activity of the Week

I took a couple of walks, but I have really struggled getting back into running ever since my 5K. I feel like I did after a marathon. Pretty Muddy Central Ohio is in two days, and I am not at all sure how I feel about that. A little worried for sure!

I need to get better at writing down my points again because I have not been doing that. Most days, I need to make a conscious effort to track my points.

Reader’s Recap

hive and honey products

Find out about Hive and Honey: What you Don’t and Should Know. I enjoy learning about alternative treatments and remedies. I didn’t know about all the things honey, pollen and propolis (okay, I didn’t even know what it was) could do until I learned about it from these products. Blog School starts next week, and I can’t wait!

Photo Recap

Mumford Live

What’s the next best birthday present besides actually seeing Mumford & Sons live? Listening to them live any time I want on their Red Rocks Live Album (the original Gentleman of the Road Tour, which they are on again now).

Question of the Week

How do you eat healthy when eating out? Share some of your tips.

Until the next mile marker,


  1. Nice job with the loss this week!

    I have a hard time eating healthy while eating out, but luckily we never have a ton of “fun money” to eat out anyway. LOL

    I might order just an appetizer as a meal to get a smaller portion, or split a meal with someone.

      Thanks, Courtney! We try not to eat out a lot to save money. It can get so expensive. Have a great week!

  2. Congrats on the loss – a loss is a loss! 🙂 On the tracking of points, you can always take a pic of the food too & write down later if short of time….

    I don’t eat out much.. no money but in general, even when we had it, I just like to eat what I want to eat so most times I would eat before or after & maybe have veggies or something small with the others. I really don’t care anymore about having to eat just because others are – sounds harsh but it works for me! 🙂

      That’s a great idea about taking a pic of what I eat, Jody! I think it even has that option in WW – maybe like a mobile journal or something? I’m going to check it out. Thank you as always for sharing your experiences and words of advice – I listen and learn 🙂
