Monday Morning Check In

Happy 90th Birthday Granny!  On Saturday I spent the day in the 'Boro for my Granny's 90th birthday party. I really can't believe she is 90.  She gets around great, still lives on her own, and is very healthy.  If I live to 90 I want to be just like Granny.  At the party there were a lot of finger foods and snacky type stuff. They had a fruit plate, veggie plate, chips, pigs in a blanket, cheese and crackers, mini eclairs, and so on. I had lunch right before the party so that made it easy to stay away from the food table.  If I had gone to the party hungry it could have been very dangerous.

I did have a skinny piece of birthday cake. I like Weight Watchers because you are able to fit in things like birthday cake and not feel guilty about it.  When I have gone to a nutritionist in the past I have felt like if I ate one bad for me thing then I had thrown in the towel. 

Sunday I slept in and Matt made us Fiber One pancake's for breakfast. Yummy! I also made JMJE's Eazy Peazy BBQ Chicken in my crock pot.  It was super easy to make (hence the name) and it was delicious.  One serving is 6 WW points and I ate it on a Sara Lee Light Wheat Bun which is 1 WW pt.  Add some veggies as a side and you have a delicious easy meal.  I will now be looking for more good Crock Pot recipes. Anyone have any?  Also yesterday I did my first workout of Week 7 of the Couch to 5k program.  I ran for 25 minutes without stopping! It was really hard but really good to be able to do it.  It's hard to believe that running for intervals of 90 seconds was hard 8 weeks ago. 


  1. So in conclusion, bbq chicken is awesome and running is not. But running is probably good for you.

  2. Good job Jenni! As soon as my class is over (one more paper to write this week), I am thinking about doing this couch to 5k thing, you have inspired me.
