Good News: I am still Sparking! emoticon

I haven’t had a perfect day. I am not sure that is my goal.
I have dropped out of WW. I can’t keep paying for the AP. I have had this Spark Account for almost 11 years. Before that, I had joined 2 other times, then dropped out.

emoticon Planning August Menus
I have planned & replanned weekly menus. Since I haven’t been able to do my own grocery shopping, this doesn’t always work out. If I was having a bad day with back pain, I may have eaten crackers in stead of a meal. We had frozen dinners at times.

This morning, I finished at least 10 days of lunches & suppers. Many of these meals are from the SparkPeople Meal Planner found on the Nutrition Tracker. Some meals are modified to our taste. Some of the Lunch Menus will be Supper. I have different preferences for breakfast.

Today, I fixed myself a real breakfast while wearing a back brace and sitting on the seat of my rolling walker. I had “Chia Pudding “. [10 grams Chia Seeds. 170 grams Fage 0% Greek Yogurt. 80 grams dark sweet cherries. 1 gram Truvia] 👍 I weigh everything.

Lunch: Leftover Quinoa & White Beans + Frozen Butternut Squash + Broth.
I use a lot of frozen foods. If I am having a rough day, I am more likely to cook with the partially prepped food in the freezer.

Supper: This may not sound like I am trying to take off some pounds, but it is WW Freestyle Friendly. 1/2 serving of Tortellini; 1 serving of frozen Turkey Meatballs; Hunts petite diced tomato with herbs; frozen meal starter veggies (bell peppers & onion); 1 serving Kraft Fat Free Mozzarella Cheese. Used my Food Scales.

Snacks: 2/3 serving of crackers before taking medicine.
Ice cream.

Exercise: I track my Physical Therapy as Pilates. Today, exercised 30”. I like to do Coach Nicole ‘s 11” chair exercises. She has tips for what to do if you can’t do some of the exercises. This is a good video for maintaining arm and leg strength.
