So, I started Weight Watchers yesterday. I signed up for the online version with the coaching. I have my first call with my coach tonight. I’m really excited and looking forward to this process!
I’ve been lacking in motivation recently but I’ve been having fun sharing healthy foods and habits on my instagram page.
On instagram, I feel like I am more motivated to eat healthy because I can inspire others with what I make to eat. I can also share my passions and capture some of my favorite moments and keep them in a little public scrapbook. So much fun!
I absolutely love lifestyle blogging and am having a really fun time learning some new tricks and planning new content for you all to read!
Today, I’m excited to share with you a meal plan that I came up with for my dinners (and some other meals too). These are Weight Watchers recipes that I found on their app and that fit into my budget and dietary restrictions.
I’ll be sharing a post every day each week about my previous night’s meal. I want to give you an idea of how they tasted, if they were worth it, how many points they are, and how we liked it overall. If they are good enough, they may just make it into my weekly rotations!
I’m going to share with you the links to the recipes on the WW site! I’m thinking I may try and do this most weeks to help those who are vegetarian (and also those who aren’t) and trying to lose weight. I can’t wait to write the reviews and share my journey with you!
I got up early with my husband and baby bird and we got our grocery shopping on! We loaded up on coffee at the Starbucks kiosk in Ingles (proof that there are Starbucks EVERYWHERE- even in the middle of the mountains).
We took a few sips and…we were off! I meant to take a pretty picture of everything in the cart like a good blogger. Alas, you’re getting a picture of everything in the trunk of the car…one day I’ll get that elusive picture. Because I’ve literally forgotten to take it for the past like…5 grocery trips. *facepalm*

Here’s My Weight Watchers Vegetarian Meal Plan!
Some of these recipes are as low as 0 points! I’m so excited to try them and see how they all taste. And especially see if they help me lose weight!
The other two nights of the week will be leftovers. Money doesn’t grow on trees, ya’ll.
We try to have leftovers to save money whenever possible but I love eating out. It’s an addiction that I’m admitting to.
However, now that I’m doing WW, I have a reason to stay in and cook more! So, it’s saving me some money (more than I probably realize) and I’m going to be losing weight! Sounds good to me!
For snacks, I’m thinking i’ll mostly stick to fruits and veggies as those are easily 0 point foods! Here’s a list of the 0 point foods if you’re looking for an easy and delicious snack!
Tomorrow, I’ll be writing about how my first call with my WW coach went and how our first WW dinner was. I’m not sure what we’re going to pick yet, but I hope it’s delicious!
I’ve heard some really amazing things about WW and I’m excited to go on this journey with you all! I’m so thrilled to be kicking up my lifestyle blogging game, and I hope you enjoy all the new content I have coming out for you! And the blog’s new look!
I’ve been taking a lot of free online classes about lifestyle blogging and my husband also got be this helpful book. I hope you’ll be visiting my little corner of the Internet a lot more often now!
Thanks for reading and make sure to check back tomorrow for my full review!
Lots of love!
