Costco Healthy Grocery Haul

Here's my Costco Canada  grocery haul this week!  I picked up a few basics (fruit, veg, Turkey, bread), a few treats for the kiddos (Chicago Mix, croissants) and found a few new low-point treats for me to try. High protein bread (2 personal points for me but not gluten-free so this will be an in-moderation food) and a cauliflower crust kit (4 personal points for me).  I’ll round off this shop with a small haul at another grocery store this weekend, and then I’m already for some batch cooking this weekend.  Now that the kids are back to sports in the evenings I need quick grab-and-go freezer meals: chilli, soup, homemade sauce for pasta etc.  What are some of your favourite  #wwfoodfinds ?

WW and Trying New Things: Breakfast Cookies

Since joining WW I've tried to go out of my comfort zone a little, forcing myself to try new things. One of those was trying new recipes. I have to say, this recipe from WW was really easy to make, was super fast in the oven, and tasted great. And as someone who hates eating breakfast, this was a fast and easy way to get some nutrients into my body early in the day (it paired really well with my coffee!). Bonus: it was gluten and dairy-free AND my kids loved it (probably because of the chocolate chips).

WW Month 1 Thoughts

I did a thing. I joined WW (Weight Watchers) a few weeks ago. Here's why: In January I committed to completing Dry January (no alcohol), walking 10,000 steps a day, and tracking my calories. I had a bet with my mom and sister-in-law to lose 5 pounds that month and guess what? I lost 4.5 pounds! I was so excited. That's the most weight I've ever lost in a single month in my entire life.  But then, as always, the next month rolled around and I started to slip. Self-sabotage is a legit thing for me when it comes to weight loss. I get cocky and overconfident and "forget" to plan meals or keep track of what I'm eating. I haven't pushed myself to move my body, and, since Dry January was donezo I did partake quite a bit in some vino. And with the wine come snacks. And with snacks, come more snacks until I've completely obliterated my goals. Hense all the added calories I consumed and the weight I gained. Long story short, I gained the 4.5 pounds back in just
