Weight Watchers Wednesday

Join me at Weight Watchers HERE


Good morning, everyone! How did you do last week? Did you track your drinking water, food, exercise? It's eye-opening to write down everything as in every thing and see exactly what you are consuming. 

  • We received our Weight Watchers order and scale! Woo-Hoo! 
  • Tom bought me a Fitbit last week. I love it! It syncs to my Weight Watchers account auto-magically.
  • With Kati and Laney visiting us last Wed through Monday, we were really busy doing touristy stuff with lots of walking. My Fitbit loved that.

Swap It - July Birthday Pocket Letter


I love the SWAP IT group on Facebook. 
This group was created by Lorrie A Nunemaker and June Arnold. 
They have lots of Swap Events you can join for all different types of crafting. 

Today is the deadline to mail your July Birthday Pocket Letter. Mine is a little simple and plain, but there are lots of goodies stuffed in the back, so hopefully that will make up for it. :)


I used some chipboard alpha letters, stickers and flowers along the top row. For the second row, I used lots of birthday vellum stickers from Walmart, and wrapped some washi tape around one of the pocket cards. The bottom row showcases really cute My Besties images cut out with my Big Shot using My Favorite Things sticked dies or using the print and cut feature on the Cricut. I also stamped Happy Birthday really small on the middle card.


The backs were stuffed with die cuts, punch outs, tickets, ribbon, washi, and various fun things my swap partner can use on some of her upcoming projects. I love these tickets. I got a huge roll from Walmart a few years ago, and I am still enjoying them!

Cardz 4 Galz Ch# 25

Hi, everyone! Today I am sharing the new challenge at Cardz 4 Galz.
Hope you'll join us this week!

This Week's Challenge:


Birthday


My Design Team Project:




Balloon Bouquet Card created in Cricut Design Space and chosen from the Make It Now section. I love the shape of this card and how easily it came together. This file also includes a pretty envelope that has a flap that matches the scallop of the balloons at the top of this card.

The cut file came with a Happy B-Day cut out on the banner. Instead I stamped my own sentiment using stamps from Close To My Heart's 

Zoe Scrapbooking Workshop kit

Weight Watchers Wednesdays is BACK!

Join me at Weight Watchers HERE 

LOL


I've had a good week getting back on track with Weight Watchers. No Coke since last week. SHOCKER! In fact, I've had nothing to drink except plain water or water with Crystal Lite Powders. ( 0 points ) My fav is the Peach Tea. Add to that, no daily chocolate. SHAZAM! Tom & I went to get groceries together. No junk food. No poptarts which is my fav for breakfast. But I will say that I did continue poptarts for breakfast last year with WW and it's perfectly fine as long as you count the points. There are better choices, but you don't ever want to deny yourself something you are really craving, because then you feel deprived, and then you binge. Never a good thing. So eat what you want, just remember....

If you bite it; write it.

Bonnie is also doing really well on the Weight Watchers plan. She's been having meal replacement shakes for lunch, and she's not complained at all. The hardest thing for her is we ran out of sweet cereal and didn't buy any more. That's a huge change for her, but she's doing really well. I'm so proud of her.

Weight Watchers idea for Planner Nerds (like me)


I stumbled across this PERFECT print and cut in the Silhouette store! It's going to be awesome in my Planner for my Weight Watchers tracking.


So..... still haven't found our scale. I'm beginning to wonder if it actually made the move with us. We were crazy downsizing. Nah. It's probably in the garage somewhere with something I didn't need to unpack yet. 

Did I tell you that Bonnie & I ordered a bunch of stuff from the Weight Watcher's online store? I went ahead and added a scale to the order, but we are also expecting some snacks, shakes and that sort of thing. It hasn't shipped yet, and I ordered last week. Sigh. I'm so impatient.

THANK YOU!


I want to make sure I say a BIG thank you to everyone who has used the 
Join me at Weight Watchers HERE link! I really appreciate it very, very much!!

Since I haven't weighed in yet (due to lack of scale), I'm going to move on now and share my June Title page with you for my scrapbook.
