This week started off good, but ended not so good. The good news is I tracked everything, but I had way too much snacking, junk stuff. This week I am going to focus on eating whole foods, fruits, veggies, lean protein and whole grains. Staying within my daily points and using my weekly points very sparingly. After making a big cake this weekend I am kind of sweet food out anyways. I am determined to break that 25lb mark . . . it has become a barrier and I need to charge at it and knock it down and never look back. I am using mostly weight watchers/hungry girl recipes as that will definitely give me a solid plan for staying within my daily points!

Also, with Memorial Day coming up (and my birthday) I am totally in the mood for summer food. It was really hot this weekend so I made grilled chicken and greek orzo salad and grilled corn on Sunday night with a big dish of watermelon. It was like summer on a plate! So I have lots of casual summer food this week on my menu. Plus I just got Hungry Girls new cookbook “200 under 200” and there was a buffalo chicken recipe in there that sound right up my buffalo lovin’ boys alley!

Our big local festival is this weekend so I will be very busy on Sunday with its kick off and then on Monday I plan on getting up and going to see the hot air balloon launch! And then enjoying the rest of the day! I don’t have any major plans, but I am going to try and keep the festivities in check so I don’t blow my hard work this week and then next week will really watch it to make up for some birthday splurges. There are a couple of new WW desserts from the new cookbook (only available at the meetings) that I might try instead of just getting a crazy dessert at a restaurant! But we shall see . . . I will let you know how it goes!

Monday: Cajun Chicken Stroganoff (didn’t get to it last week), whole wheat egg noodles, salad
Tuesday: Turkey Burgers, Onion and Zucchini Rings
Wednesday: Hungry Girl Boneless Buffalo Chicken, Butternut Squash Fries, Veggies and dip
Thursday: Jambalaya, rice, broccoli
Friday: Pizza!
Saturday:Turkey Dogs, Baked Beans, Light Potato Salad, Tomato Cucumber Salad
Sunday: Art and Wind Festival!
Monday: My Birthday!

Snacks This week: Watermelon (mmm!), WW Haystack Cookies (1/4 cup choc. chips, 1/4 cup peanut butter, 1 cup fiber one), and because the boy requested chocolate chip cookies . . . I thought I would give this recipe a try!
