Watcha Eating Weight Watchers Wednesday

New Purchase:

I tend to get a restless spirit if I'm stuck doing the same workout every day. So although I love my morning walks, I needed to step up my game a little bit. I found this bike trailer on Craiglist for $100. They tend to retail from $100 to $500. So I stole borrowed my stepfather's bike while they are in Europe, and have used it every day since. I hit 9 miles on Monday! I logged 23 miles on the bike last week. Product review time(Schwinn Bicycle Trailer) doesn't appear to be very comfortable for the kids, no lounge ability. The last couple times they have both gone to sleep, which can I just say is AWESOME! I get to amp up my exercise routine and I get some peace and quite outside. BUT they seem really uncomfortable with their heads bobbing away.

Weight Update:

I've absopositively hit a plateau. I can go up and down between 5-7lbs any given day. Super frustrating. Since slacking on my Weight Watcher Online accountability....this may be the culprit. SO enough already! I watched a vlog this morning that was exactly what I needed. MOTIVATION. These chicas lost 43 and 46 lbs. That's so awesome! Funny comment from the vlog..."like a toddler and a half", hahaha. I think the coolest part for me will be when I can say I've lost the weight of BOTH my kids. Which at current would be about 50lbs! Here are the links to Katie and Susan's blogs. I am a loyal follower of both.

Recently I've been pretty fascinating with trying to figure out what skinny people eat( I haven't found any posts like this on the above chicas blogs yet). Eating is obviously my problem area. And I know I've narrowed it down to my night time eating throughout this weight loss process. And the truth is, yes sometimes I'm craving something sweet, BUT most of the time I'm BORED. So I've gathered a couple examples.

Here is Cassie @ Hisugarplum. First of all, LOVE, LOVE her. She has ALWAYS responded to my questions in her comments, and she answered my stalkerish question about what her skinny ass eats!! I didn't ask her to share with the intention of blogging about it, but because it helped me so much I thought I'd share...hope she doesn't mind? Cassie's design style is amazing, and she's super gorgeous, and is fantastic fashionista...go check her blog out, hurry go now!!! Check out her amazing back and arms!

Daily Bread: Breakfast: nutrigrian waffle with a little peanut butter, cup of skim milk
Lunch: Lean Cuisine of some sort
Snack: sometimes an apple
Dinner: either a small portion of what my family is having, or a bowl of Raisin Bran with skim milk

Hello, gorgeous abs! This lady is quite the organizer, runner, super mama extraordinaire! I love her house and all the helpful tips she gives on her blog. These two ladies are definitely blog idols of mine for their design style and superb bodies.

Daily Bread:
