Meal Delivery Services and Freestyle Points

I’m going to be trying out some meal delivery services in the next few weeks and seeing how they stand up with the Weight Watchers Freestyle Program.  The ones I’m going to be trying are Terra’s Kitchen, Hello Fresh and Chef’d. I don’t usually have […]

Go To Munchy Snacks

Sensible Portions Cinnamon Apple StrawsSo it took a while for me to really find something that satisfies my munchies.  But I think I’ve managed it with these 2 things.  When I have the Desert Munchies I go after the Sensible Portions Cinnamon Apple Straws.  With those you can have 38! Yes that’s right 38 of them for just 4 points.You can find them in the “dreaded snack isle of Dooooooooom” and then the isle isn’t so bad.  You could also go with either their Veggie Straws or the Veggie Chips as well, but I’m all about these little sticks of awesome.

Now if you’re looking for something truly decadent and want to make it feel like you need to hide in a hall closet to eat them, I highly suggest the Simply Cheetos Puffs.  They’re pretty much like regular Cheetos, not the crunchy ones mind you, but not all neon orange.  These are awesome!  They also make a Jalapeño Cheddar one that is my Husband’s go to for his snacking pleasure.  These awesome Cheetos are 32 for 5 points.

If neither of these things appeal to you or you’re not wanting to portion out a snack and want it NOW NOW NOW.  I hit up our son’s snack drawer.  The 3 pre-packaged snacks are all 4 points a bag.  If you get the “Natural” Applesauce without all the added sugar and what-not, that is a 0 point snack to go.

I hope that these suggestions help you in the snacking realm for when you really want to make it feel like you’re being naughty, but really not be.  #ILoveFoodAndThatsOK

If you’re not feeling naughty… don’t forget all the glorious 0 point fruits and vegetables you can snack on as well!  Just remember when you eat too many blueberries you poop blue… ;D


It’s been a long time….

After gaining a bunch of weight after stopping Weight Watchers, I decided that with the new Freestyle program I would get back in the saddle and see what happens.  I’ll keep you posted on the interesting and perhaps the non-interesting ones too.  😀

So I joined Weight Watchers…

Yes, I finally took the plunge.  I’ve been trying to get rid of the weight I gained before and during my pregnancy and it just hasn’t been going well alone.  Thus here we are with the Smart Points program.  I’ll admit the last 4 days […]

The night of no-clicking became the morning of no-clicking returned…

Obviously it was not Little Snitch or at least not Little Snitch alone that cause the malady which befell my poor Mac.  The morning found it again without the ability to left click and sadness returned.  Fortunately I was able to reboot it and was able to get my mouse back to normal again.  I believe this is going to have to become a more in-depth research problem.  Hopefully it isn’t a problem in El Capitan and I won’t have to deal with it eternally.  I’ll let you know what I find out if anything.

The night of the no clicking…

I was trying to do some surfing tonight after a reboot and some Little Snitch Updates.  Thing went horribly wrong and once my Mac Book restarted all I could do was right click and I could only right-click on things that had focus.  It was […]

Get Well Card

IMG_3444I needed to make some get well cards over the weekend, and I really wanted to try a new card type, so here’s what I ended up with.  The Butterfly Basics Stamp Set worked really well with this card tooI think that next time I will do a slightly different pull for the card though, or a different fold.  For the card all I did was the standard fold and then used Fast Fuse to stick the other side to it.  I seemed pretty stiff and sticky to move.  I think I’d make it a little narrower so I could fold over about a quarter inch and stick that down.  I don’t know, I’m going to have to fuss with it I think.IMG_3445







Quick Card

Just made a quick card for one of my friends to let them know they mattered.  Used a new masking technique on it too. I’m having a lot of fun with these tiny cards.
