This week in meetings, it’s all about recipe swaps. Ditch the takeaways and opt for the fakeaways. While I admit that there are times that a takeaway is so much easier and more convenient, I prefer the fakeaways. The last few days has been all about fakeaways for our household and it’s all thanks to Weight Watchers.
I got my days messed up yesterday on the 100 Day Challenge. Today is actually the update for day 5 on the challenge. Sorry!
So, I finished yesterday on 26 pro points. That’s my full allowance eaten. It was a hungry day for me, but I made the good choices for snacks. I had a lot of fruit and when I was fed up of that, I had carrot sticks and one small Weight Watchers bar. I was proud of myself. Before tracking religiously, I know I would have had more chocolate than fruit, so this tracking thing really does work—it’s not just a fad!
For dinner, we had pork fajitas, all freshly made. The only thing we used instead of making our own was the Weight Watchers fajita stir-in sauce. I absolutely love it, I really do! I’m raving about the stir-in sauces right now because they are so easy and so delicious. The fajitas easily beat the ones that you can buy from the store.
The day before, I mentioned yesterday that we had duck stir fry with the Weight Watchers Chinese stir-in sauce. So, that’s another fakeaway that tasted so much better than the ones that you get from the takeaways. There wasn’t as much fat, so there wasn’t as much guilt afterwards. In fact, I didn’t feel guilty at all.
I’m not sure what I’m going to have tonight. Right now, I’m planning lunch now that my Tuesday morning class is finished and I’ve used up 2 pro points on breakfast for a yogurt with some fruit. Roll on Saturday to see all this pay off!
