Sometimes I get really tired of posting recipes so I thought I'd share what my typical day looks like on WW. I'm the type of person that loves going grocery shopping and I get extremely excited whenever a new grocery store opens up in town. Aldis just had a grand opening here and I plan on doing a product post on that soon. Be on the lookout for that post. The main stores that I shop at are Sam's Club, Cash Wise (Midwest store) and now Aldis. I also LOVE easy convenience food that I can throw in my air fryer or just heat up in the microwave. The 3 main cooking appliances I use are my stove top, microwave, and air fryer.
On top of WW, I also count calories. Zero point foods have calories too and that is one reason why I also like to track those foods. I have found from reading various Facebook groups and online forms that it is a personal preference. I also find that when I track 23 points a day that is roughly around 1,o00 calories. I work out and swim in the morning and I need a little more fuel to help me throughout the day, aka as activity points. So on days I work out I eat more than 23 points.
Hopefully, this post will give you some new meal ideas or inspiration. I've been honestly tracking my food for the last 2 months (instead of Yo-yo dieting) and I've lost 7 pounds and I plan to keep going until I hit 15 pounds. One account that has really helped me on Instagram is Syatt Fitness. His posts about weight loss and goals are so inspiring to me and help me stay on track. Weight loss doesn't happen overnight. It takes time and that is one thing he's taught me. Patient. Also, try listening to your body. It knows when you are full or when you're hungry. You could just be bored and eating snack after snack like I was. It took me a long time to realize that too. Let me know if you want to continue seeing these types of posts. Maybe I can do 1 or 2 of them a month.
I LOVE watching What I Eat in a Day videos and recently I've discovered Felicia's channel. She's lost a tremendous amount of weight and she has a very inspiring channel. I saw her famous Felicia combo which is ¼ cup of low-fat cottage cheese, 2 fried eggs, 1 ¼ cups of Ore Shredded Hash Browns and 2 slices of Turkey bacon. All of this is only 5 smart points and it is very filling. I can't stop eating this combo because it is delicious! My dogs end up having a slice of turkey bacon so I count it as only 4 points.
Cook the turkey bacon in the microwave between 2 sheets of paper towels.
Spray a nonstick cooking pan with Pam and add the frozen hash browns to the pan. I like to do this on a medium-low heat at 5. I watch for the hash browns to start turning brown on the bottom and that is when I flip them. I like my hash browns golden brown on the outside.
After I flip the hash browns that is when I add the turkey bacon to the microwave and set the timer to the 2 minutes. I add the eggs to the skillet and they are done by the time the bacon is done cooking. So stinking good and this is something I definitely don't get tired of eating every day.
Instagram is an awesome place to discover new food and ideas for meals throughout the day on WW. That is where I discovered these Don Miguel Chicken and Cheese mini tacos (refrigerated section at Sam’s). 1 mini taco is 1 point and they are good with Tostitos Cheese sauce for 1 point. Today I had 7 of them with 2 tablespoons of cheese sauce for 8 points. Air fry them at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. Add on some zero point food such as fat free refried beans or corn.
For dinner lately, I've been loving these Barber Foods Cordon Bleu stuffed chicken breasts (Sam's Club). They are so yummy and tasty with a side of french style green beans and unsweetened applesauce for 0 points. I prefer canned green beans over fresh ones. Air fry these frozen chicken breasts from frozen at 370 for 20 minutes. They come out perfect in my air fryer every time. 8 points
Adis had a deal on grapes this week and my Mom and I split a bag of them. Grapes, of course, are zero points and I like to pair them with a Sargento Light Mozzarella Cheese stick for 1 point. Sargento has the best light string cheese in my opinion. Tried others and they just taste like garbage.
So there you have it. This is roughly what I eat in a day when I'm seriously counting. Hope you like it.

Your blog is the BEST EVER for WW! THANK YOU!!!!!!!! It keeps me motivated and helps me see healthy doesn't mean bland or boring. - Allison from Alabama 😉
I used to get Jennie-O Turkey bacon but now I get pre-cooked bacon slices from Aldi. They are 1 point each and only take 15 seconds to cook.
what kind of turkey bacon do you get? I haven't found one I like yet.
