This sign could not be more true!
Since being diagnosed in December 2018 with heart failure; I've made a lot of positive, healthy changes in my lifestyle. While some are unsure that I will get better or increase my ejection fraction, I for one refuse to give up the fight. I exercise every day, no matter how tired I may be. I've also stayed with a very strict diet and I have lost a lot of fluid weight between the hospital and being home. I am doing all I can to continue to lose it until I feel I am at a healthier weight. :-) I've decided to try out the WW freestyle plan to help me manage portions of the foods I eat and I like being able to track everything.
My new normal is carrying my food with me wherever I go, unless I find a restaurant like the one featured in my last blog post that I know I can eat healthy, low sodium foods there. You can read my last post by clicking here. On this particular trip we had taken the girls to the mall and I was happy as can be to sit in the food court with them and enjoy a meal :-) The meal was only 1 point for the little bit of oil I cooked the chicken and veggies in. I found these great glass containers on Amazon and they are leakproof.
I also bought my Pioneer Woman lunch bag on Amazon and I love all the room it has in it for everything. Plus it's pretty and feels more like carrying a purse! ;-)
This was delicious as well, it is 2 slices of the mini whole wheat bread from Pepperidge Farms. I added some Can't Believe it's not Butter spray, then added no sodium turkey breast, a slice of Swiss cheese and thinly sliced apples and heated it on the stove. So delicious! Points only 5 and that's because the turkey was a point from the deli. Each slice of bread was 1 point and the Swiss cheese was 3.
This was an easy, quick snack too. The unsweetened almond milk is only 1 point for a cup. The baby bel cheese is 3 points and the grapes are free. :-) Holds me over in the afternoon until dinner time. I've also stopped eating anything past 7 PM and I only have a plain hot cup of tea before bed.
I had to share this Angel Food cake fail with you, lol. We all had a good laugh about it, because it had to be the type of mix he picked up. Jerry picked up the Angel food cake mix at Save-A-Lot grocery store and I was pretty skeptical..... needless to say the mix suggestions did not fluff up the cake.... Luckily we still had another mix in the pantry from a better brand and he redeemed himself, lol. One slice of Angel food cake is only 4 points! Helps when you just want a little treat. :-)
Now that's more like it! ;-)
So excited to announce that Perfectly Posh is releasing new products again! I wasn't able to make it to Uncon this year, which I'm really bummed about because Rachel Hollis will be a presenter and I just love her! But I will be featuring all the latest products on my business page if you'd like to follow along there :-) You can also find all the products on my website I also have a YouTube for my business you can find the link here. We have a huge retirement sale going on right now and products as low as $5.00 each! Sad to see some of my favorites go, but excited for the new launch!
I completed 3 grocery hauls this past weekend to Sav-A-Lot, Aldi's and Harris Teeter. In my latest YouTube video I go through all the details. :-)
Lots of good things planned for our menus the next two weeks. This was just the Harris teeter haul.
Do you plan your meals each week? What are your favorite stores to get groceries?
Have an amazing week!!
