It was the Kroger brand of multigrain peanut butter Cheerios. I scored an awesome deal $1.99 vs $4.50 a box. I’m all about saving money so most of the time I buy generic… except cream cheese and peanut butter, gotta have the Philadelphia and the Skippy Natural! 
The cereal was pretty good - not super sweet, peanut butter flavor was decent, 3 points per 3/4c but I easily ate 3 cups worth (2 bowlfuls). I think next time I’m going to add a banana and maybe some almonds or extra peanut butter so I don’t eat as much! lol.

Just ate 3 cups of multigrain peanut butter cereal w/ 1 cup of unsweetened original almond milk for a total of 12 points plus. 

…. It has multgrain in the name so it’s healthy right ;) ?

Yellow = Completed earlier in the month
Teal = Completed in the last week or so
Green = To complete this upcoming week
Gray = To complete next week

I think I might complete everything!!!

I’ve been having a hard time trying to figure out what I want to try for a new fruit and veggie. I’m thinking about beets. I’ve never them before and have no idea how to prepare them. Suggestions?

Classes are going good. Finished the Coding class. I’m glad that is out of the way! Currently working Statistics.

I really need to get to a Weight Watchers meeting. Maybe Friday or next Monday. We will see!

It’s official… I finally quit using coffee creamer! Going strong w/ black coffee and a big splash of unsweetened almond milk.

Anonymous said: Can you upload your moles that you had removed. I would love to see how they are healing/scaring as I want to have some removed.

Sure, I’ll try to take a pic this week. It had a scab over it that just fell off yesterday. It’s still a little pink and tender but looking great. It won’t be fully healed for a couple more weeks, but I’m sure at that point it won’t be noticeable.

I accomplished a lot this week!
Weighed in at 127 lbs this morning, which means I’ve lost 4.5lbs since the beginning of the month. Holy crap on a cracker! I’ve been very disciplined with eating 26 points plus per day - I guess it’s paying off!
Other things I accomplished: Bought study materials which was super expensive (I think I cried a little after I made the purchase!), booked our vacation to Disneyland and Las Vegas for early August, did yoga for my workouts, harvested some plants that were ready, and went through my clothing & shoes (6+ huge garbage bags full and most of my shoes are too big now!)
Next week: New fruit and veggie (I planned to do stuffed poblanos last week but my grocery store didn’t have any in stock), maybe finish those 2 classes (not sure if this is possible since I have to read hundreds of pages and write 5 papers), I’m planning on going to a WW meeting on Monday night (maybe, I haven’t been since January so I have to pay $13), I’m still working on internship details (I hope to get this figured out soon, I want to start mid-August), I hope to spend some time researching career paths within my field - I can go a lot of different directions, and finally, I hope to give my house a deep cleaning. I’m not sure if it’s going to happen since it’s supposed to be 90+ degrees all week with no air conditioning (which is super hot here in Washington).

DUDE! You can count WW points in Myfitnesspal!!!
As you can see, it counts points for fruit (and veggies) but that’s ok. 
I’m totally digging this! Not because I want to count calories (because I really don’t) but because I’d love to see my daily macros. That’s one thing I wish WW had. Plus, this works with my fitbit!
Whoo hoo!

Honestly, it’s really not much of a recipe but here’s what I did. I made the chia seed oatmeal pudding before I went to bed. 2 tbsp chia seeds, 1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk, stevia, and because I wanted it more filling, 2 tbsp oatmeal. As long as you have the chia seed to liquid ratio close to 2 tbsp /1c liquid… it will work. Once you have that mixed together, pop it in the fridge, wait 10-20 minutes. Take it back out and stir it up again and pop it back in the fridge. The chia sometimes settles to the bottom a bit.
In the morning, I added everything else as a topping: 1/4c plain yogurt w/ a little stevia, 1/2c mixed frozen berries defrosted, 1 tsp creamy natural peanut butter melted, and 8 grams sliced almonds.
It was yummy and super filling! And like I said, 18g of fiber and 7 WW points. Here are the actual stats:

Yesterday I was checking out chia seed pudding recipes and found a ton that have flavored yogurt mixed in with the chia and liquid. It gave me so many ideas - different varieties of yogurt like coconut or soy, kefir, pudding, different “milks”, and protein powder. I can’t wait to experiment!
