This week was way harder than last week. We had a long weekend with lots of celebrating, wine and eating out. That all makes it super hard to stay on track, especially when the restaurants are not in my WW app. In full disclosure, there are a few meals I didn't even track because I couldn't find anything in the app. But I fully enjoyed my meals, ate until I was satisfied, and moved on.
Pounds Lost: 2.3 pounds
Total: 3.3 pounds
I am so happy with that, especially considering I was a bit off track this week. It is a hundred times harder to stay on track when you are eating out. But I enjoyed the heck out of it. We had a lot to celebrate and I still succeeded in losing this week. I think part of it has to do with incorporating running into the mix (see below).
I think I'll mainly be sharing dinners here since my breakfasts and lunches pretty much stay the same. But if anything changes I'll mention it here. And all the meals we ate out can be found here so I won't show pictures of them again.

I'm out of protein powder so I've been drinking the shakes G drinks. It is one cup orange juice (3pp), banana (opp), two cups spinach (0pp), half cup strawberries (0pp), and half cup pineapple (0pp).
My lunches have mostly been leftovers from meals out. I did change it up and have TJ's multi-grain waffles (4pp) and 2T crunchy peanut butter (5pp).
I also am obsessed with TJ's broccoli and cheese quiche. Half of the quiche is only 6pp and it's the perfect amount. It made a great breakfast or lunch!
Saturday night G grilled chicken (4pp) and veggies (0pp) so we shared that and it hit the spot. I also had a glass of white wine (4pp) and a bit of Skinnypop (4pp) later on that I forgot to snap a picture of.
Sunday night I had wine (4pp), two servings of Triscuits (7pp), and Colby Jack cheese (2pp).
Monday night I had taco bites with cheddar (3pp), 1/2 cup black beans (2pp), 1/2 cup 90/10 beef (5pp) in pieces of a soft tortilla (2pp). YUM!
Tuesday night I had Subway broccoli and cheese soup (7pp) and a red pepper (0pp).
Wednesday evening I had 1/2 cup TJ's qunioa (3pp), and half a package of Tasty Bite Madras Lentils (4pp). It was the perfect quick meal to eat before small group. By the way, small group went so well! Everyone was so nice and we had great conversation. I'm so excited to be back into doing life with people every week.
I saved 8pp for a nice big glass of wine after small group. We were celebrating my accepting a new job! I didn't really talk about my old job, but it wasn't a good fit and I was unhappy. I am so thankful for the experience and I met some amazing girls I will be friends with for life. I'm stepping back into the arena and accepted a position in supply chain at an automotive company that was named a top place to work in 2016. I'm so, so excited for this new adventure!
Thursday was our nine year anniversary and I can't wait to share what we did soon! Check out instagram (@learningtobeawife) to get a sneak peek. Have a great weekend friends!
