Please Give to Children- Donate to Community Food Bank of #NJ #GivingTuesday #ad

Did you know that one in five New Jersey kids will miss more than one meal today?  No one, especially a child, should miss a meal because their family cannot afford food. Too many families - including those with working parents - must choose between medicine and food; housing and food; or utilities and food.
The Community FoodBank of New Jersey aims to help families and children in New Jersey year-round. On November 29, 2016, also known as Giving Tuesday, an anonymous donor has issued a $25,000 Giving Tuesday Matching Gift Challenge. For Giving Tuesday only, every gift to the FoodBank will be doubled up to a total of $25,000. Monetary donations are particularly critical to the FoodBank because every dollar donated results in the ability to provide five meals for New Jersey's hungry men, women and children. That means every dollar provides 10 meals on Giving Tuesday. Donations can be made at FeedNJkids.org.

Don't Stress Thanksgiving! My #WeightWatchers Journey Week 11 #SelfControl #Diet

It's Week 11  and I lost another 1.4 pounds. Yay!  Since it was a short week, I was a lot more conscientious..  I usually go to my meeting on Thursday.
One thing that I will not be doing tomorrow is over eating.  I have already set a mental plan for myself.  Since we will be having our dinner at 2, I will only be having a small breakfast.  I will probably have a cup of yogurt with some fresh fruit.  I also will probably not eat after my Thanksgiving meal, so I have about 26 points for my dinner and dessert.  However, I already know that I will be using more points than that.
I won't deprive myself of anything that I want to have.  However, I will be cutting back portions tremendously.  Here is how I plan to use them:
1 thin slice of ham (2 oz.)  2 pts 1 slice of turkey       2 pts 1 serving of green beans  0 1 serving of mashed potatoes   1 pt 1serving of yams     5 pts 1 tbsp of cranberry sauce   2 pts 1 serving corn     2 pts, 2 tbsp stuffing   6 pts
My total dinner will be…

Don't Quit ! A #WeightWatchers Poem To Help Keep You On Track #diet #encouragement

With the holidays coming up this week, I know a lot of people may want to indulge a little and that is OK.  Just remember that you are human and it's OK to sometimes go overboard.  The key is to get back on track the next day.

When I was at my meeting this week, my leader Erica read a poem to us that was really encouraging and helped put things in perspective.  You see, even though this is a journey, you have to remember there is a destination ahead.  Even if you take things in small steps, like I do, the important thing is to not forget the reason you started this journey to begin with.

Here is the poem that was read to us at our meeting.  Feel free to print it out and stick it on your fridge or anywhere that you can read it, when you feel like giving up.

Believe in yourself. You can do it.  Don't Quit!!







When you’ve eaten too much and you can’t write it down,
And you feel like the biggest failure in town.
When you want to give up just because you gave in,
And forget all about b…

Week 10 My #WeightWatchers Journey Go Me!!

Hello again!  It's just me here to tell you about another successful week on my Weight Watchers journey.
This week I focused on portion control.  I also wanted to eat a lot more vegetables and so I made a lot of recipes that included many fresh and frozen vegetables.
I also have this sudden passion for tikka masala.  I eat it in small amounts, but love it with chick peas and basmati rice.
I make sure to eat a healthy breakfast every morning.  I usually will have eggs, egg beaters, puffed wheat cereal or oatmeal with fresh fruit.    I limit the amount of bread I eat.  Usually if I have bread, it will only be in the morning with breakfast and is usually a light english muffin since the entire english muffin is only 2 points.  I almost feel like I am cheating when I eat it.  I also do not drink my calories.....with 1 exception.    I limit coffee to a couple of times a week and I use Silk Almond Creamer.  It is delicious and less points than regular cream.
I went out to eat a couple …

Easy Frittata with Calphalon Classic Ceramic Nonstick 10-Inch Fry Pan with Cover

Who wouldn't enjoy cooking with a beautiful fry pan that performs so well in the kitchen.

I truly enjoy cooking from scratch and spoiling my family with delicious meals.  I also enjoy cooking on quality cookware that distributes heat evenly and has a non stick surface.  I hate when surfaces are difficult to work with and so it is important that my pans have a reliable nonstick surface so that I can work easily with them and clean up without tedious scrubbing.

Calphalon Classic Ceramic Nonstick 10-Inch Fry Pan with Cover is well constructed of hard-anodized aluminum , attractive and smartly designed with stay-cool stainless steel long handles that make it easy to cook with and transport.  The tempered glass lid allows me to see the foods that I am preparing without disturbing their cooking.

I truly like that the pan is oven safe to 450°F.  I often like to start meals on stove top and finish them off in the oven or broiler.


Here is a quick and easy frittata recipe that you can ma…

Failure Is Not An Option - My #WeightWatchers Journey Week 9

Week 9 was another successful week for me. I lost close to 2 more pounds.  18 total pounds down.  I didn't have any major events planned for the week and kept on track.  I made sure to keep a log of all of my meals and snacks.
I find that when I get hungry at night, a glass of unsweetened almond milk and a cut up apple really helps to curb my hunger and only costs me 1 point.
I did go out to dinner with my husband one day to Longhorns steak house and ordered the Grilled Chicken Strawberry Salad with the dressing on the side.  I left a lot of the nuts that were in the salad so that I could keep my point count down.  
One thing that I never do, is deny myself.  I have done that in the past and it just sets me up for failure.  If I really want something, I will have it, even if it is just a tablespoon or taste.  Sometimes that is all it takes to get rid of that craving.
I also went out to a local Italian cafe for a cappuccino.  I ordered decaf made with skim milk and added splenda s…
