Yesterday I meal prepped some bird balls 🦃 (turkey meatballs) to have on hand for the next few days! For the OG recipe, visit @mudhustler_official - he knows what he’s doing 😎 . For mine (12 bird balls), I used: 93/7 ground turkey (because I had it) 1/4c panko bread crumbs 1 egg S+P, garlic powder, oregano, cumin, cayenne, red pepper flakes & fennel seed (I don’t measure my spices, so please don’t ask 😂) . Baked in a muffin tin for 20 minutes at 400 degrees- the muffin tin is the key to keeping them juicy! 😋 . My version came out to: 1 for 1SP 2 for 3SP 3 for 4SP *always use the @weightwatchers recipe builder for your specific ingredients* . #ww #weightwatchers #wwsisterhood #wwsmartpoints #wwsupport #wwsisters #wwfooddiary #wwfamily #wwfam #wwdivas #wwdiary #wwconnecticut #wwonline #wwgirls #livelifefully #beyondthescale #smartpoints #smartpointsfam #wwligetime #thisislifetime #bettertogether #wwfreestyle #wwfreestyleeffect #wwleader #groceriesandgrace
Trying to bring back that Weight Watchers “newbie” mindset where everything is new & exciting- that includes weighing & measuring! . Our beloved @traderjoes lite mozz is 1 SmartPoint per ounce (🎉🎉🎉) but we all know we can get a little heavy handed sprinkling it over our plates 🤦🏼‍♀️ . Here’s what I do: as soon as I buy it, I weigh 1oz portions & put them in ziploc baggies until it’s all gone, then stuff all the little bags into the original bag- voilá! 💁🏼‍♀️ . What do you do during meal prep to make controlling your portions easier? Tell us! ⬇️ . #ww #weightwatchers #wwsisterhood #wwsmartpoints #wwsupport #wwsisters #wwfooddiary #wwfamily #wwfam #wwdivas #wwdiary #wwconnecticut #wwonline #wwgirls #livelifefully #beyondthescale #smartpoints #smartpointsfam #wwligetime #thisislifetime #bettertogether #wwfreestyle #wwfreestyleeffect #wwleader #groceriesandgrace

There’s something SO satisfying about a peanut butter & banana combo 🥜 🍌 . 1/2c @kodiakcakes buttermilk (5) 2T @crazyrichardspb powder (1) Banana (0) Cinnamon (0) . 🥜 for the drizzle, I add water to the powder little by little until I have my desired consistency . #ww #weightwatchers #wwsisterhood #wwsmartpoints #wwsupport #wwsisters #wwfooddiary #wwfamily #wwfam #wwdivas #wwdiary #wwconnecticut #wwonline #wwgirls #livelifefully #beyondthescale #smartpoints #smartpointsfam #wwligetime #thisislifetime #bettertogether #wwfreestyle #wwfreestyleeffect #wwleader #groceriesandgrace
Shout out to Christiane, owner of @healthyeat_onthego bars- thank you for sending me your new bars to try! 🎉 . I ♥️ all things blueberry & these are almond butter based- can a girl ask for anything more?! 😍 . All of her bars are 6-8 SmartPoints & keep me full for HOURS 😳 . Head over to @healthyeat_onthego for a link to her site where you can order some bars to try. They are not available in stores. Pop over to @jensfoodandlove for some discount codes! . #ww #weightwatchers #wwsisterhood #wwsmartpoints #wwsupport #wwsisters #wwfooddiary #wwfamily #wwfam #wwdivas #wwdiary #wwconnecticut #wwonline #wwgirls #livelifefully #beyondthescale #smartpoints #smartpointsfam #wwligetime #thisislifetime #bettertogether #wwfreestyle #wwfreestyleeffect #wwleader #groceriesandgrace
I get asked a lot (especially by new members joining @weightwatchers ) how to track meals out at restaurants that are not programmed into the app. My answer? Just break it down to the best of your ability. Tracking SOMETHING is better than pretending the meal didn’t happen. This does NOT have to be an exact science; tracking is about accountability to yourself. Don’t let restaurants stress you out- ENJOY what you order & don’t let the stress of tracking ruin the memories you’re making 🙌🏼 . That being said, this diner lunch was out of this world 🌎 (that diner lighting, on the other hand 🤦🏼‍♀️) . How I tracked it: 1 whole wheat wrap (4) 4oz deli turkey breast (1) 2oz avocado (3) Lettuce, onion & roasted peppers (0) . Fruit cup (0) . #ww #weightwatchers #wwsisterhood #wwsmartpoints #wwsupport #wwsisters #wwfooddiary #wwfamily #wwfam #wwdivas #wwdiary #wwconnecticut #wwonline #wwgirls #livelifefully #beyondthescale #smartpoints #smartpointsfam #wwligetime #thisislifetime #bettertogether #wwfreestyle #wwfreestyleeffect #wwleader #groceriesandgrace
This lunch totally hit the spot- I only made an individual serving & I’m already regretting it 😂 . @eatbanza rotini (6) Chopped celery (0) 2oz of imitation crab (2) A few spoons of nonfat Greek yogurt (0) S+P, garlic powder, chives & a pinch of cayenne (I wish I had dill!) . Yes, this was 8 SmartPoints, but 1. It will keep me full & 2. I have not taken one bite of any pasta salad all summer and I needed to fix that 💁🏼‍♀️ . #ww #weightwatchers #wwsisterhood #wwsmartpoints #wwsupport #wwsisters #wwfooddiary #wwfamily #wwfam #wwdivas #wwdiary #wwconnecticut #wwonline #wwgirls #livelifefully #beyondthescale #smartpoints #smartpointsfam #wwligetime #thisislifetime #bettertogether #wwfreestyle #wwfreestyleeffect #wwleader #groceriesandgrace
I don’t post quotes often, but this one was worth a share ♥️ . #selflove
Switched up my breakfast this morning & I totally forgot how long you can stay full with some basic oatmeal! 😍 . 1/4c of oats (2) prepped w/ water A couple scoops of nonfat Greek yogurt (0) Sliced banana (0) @rxbar vanilla almond butter (6) Cinnamon (0) . #ww #weightwatchers #wwsisterhood #wwsmartpoints #wwsupport #wwsisters #wwfooddiary #wwfamily #wwfam #wwdivas #wwdiary #wwconnecticut #wwonline #wwgirls #livelifefully #beyondthescale #smartpoints #smartpointsfam #wwligetime #thisislifetime #bettertogether #wwfreestyle #wwfreestyleeffect #wwleader #groceriesandgrace
I know there are a ton of spiked seltzer type of drinks on the market, so I thought I’d share my newest find with you! 💁🏼‍♀️ . Now, I’ve never met a spiked seltzer I didn’t like, but these might be my favorite because their flavors are more on the medicinal side (I’m not a fan of super sweet drinks) . My flavor ranking is: #1 : strawberry elderflower 🍓🌸 #2 : tangerine hibiscus 🍊🌺 #3 : cucumber basil 🥒🌿 . I really enjoyed all 3 & would definitely purchase again! . They are 3 SmartPoints each (2 for 6SP, and so on) . Have you tried these? What’s your favorite spiked seltzer? 🍹 . @svedkavodka . #ww #weightwatchers #wwsisterhood #wwsmartpoints #wwsupport #wwsisters #wwfooddiary #wwfamily #wwfam #wwdivas #wwdiary #wwconnecticut #wwonline #wwgirls #livelifefully #beyondthescale #smartpoints #smartpointsfam #wwligetime #thisislifetime #bettertogether #wwfreestyle #wwfreestyleeffect #wwleader #groceriesandgrace
Another great weekend at the lake in the books 🙌🏼 Being on the water is absolutely my happy place ☺️ . I ended up indulging a little more than anticipated, but I had a blast & at the end of the day, that’s what really matters- you’ll always remember the fun you had, NOT the food you were or weren’t eating 💁🏼‍♀️ . I have to say these @svedkavodka seltzers were awesome- I’ll be posting a full review with my ranking of the flavors - 3 SmartPoints each 😎 . #ww #weightwatchers #wwsisterhood #wwsmartpoints #wwsupport #wwsisters #wwfooddiary #wwfamily #wwfam #wwdivas #wwdiary #wwconnecticut #wwonline #wwgirls #livelifefully #beyondthescale #smartpoints #smartpointsfam #wwligetime #thisislifetime #bettertogether #wwfreestyle #wwfreestyleeffect #wwleader #groceriesandgrace
This week in meeting rooms: Celebrating NSVs (non-scale victories), because this journey is about way more than the number on the scale. I encouraged my members to really reflect on this, because sometimes it’s hard to recognize all the success we’ve had & healthy habits we’ve formed- they’re just overlooked in our everyday lives- and we deserve that recognition! . My NSV of the day: I had a hankering for something snacky, so I popped into Trader Joe’s before my meeting for their fruit medley! . What NSVs have you celebrated recently? . #ww #weightwatchers #wwsisterhood #wwsmartpoints #wwsupport #wwsisters #wwfooddiary #wwfamily #wwfam #wwdivas #wwdiary #wwconnecticut #wwonline #wwgirls #livelifefully #beyondthescale #smartpoints #smartpointsfam #wwligetime #thisislifetime #bettertogether #wwfreestyle #wwfreestyleeffect #wwleader #groceriesandgrace

Simple, filling dinner 🍴 . Turkey breast (0)*** 2oz of @eatbanza rotini (6) 1T of alfredo sauce (1) Spinach & sundried tomatoes (0) . *** I prep my turkey/chicken breast on a foil-lined baking sheet, by spraying with olive oil & coating with spices. I bake them at 375 for 30-35 minutes. . My go-to seasoning for chicken breast is @traderjoes everything but the bagel seasoning.

I’m a little late to the game, but have y’all seen the new @questnutrition thin crust pizza? 🍕 . I have to say, this is one of the most exciting things Quest has released- TOTALLY different from their other product lines . 1/2 pizza = 10 SmartPoints Packed with protein (in case you didn’t see that coming!) DELICIOUS 😋 . You can find them in the frozen section at @target 🎯 . Who’s tried them? . #onaquest #questnutrition #questsquad #questpizza
. On Tuesdays, we transform 💫 . I hit my goal weight a year ago (yesterday I believe!) ...and to be completely honest, I haven’t seen that exact number on the scale since- but hey 🤷🏼‍♀️ I’m feeling & looking pretty good, if I do say so myself 💁🏼‍♀️ . Getting to goal was an accomplishment that for me, solely had to do with the scale. My entire mindset change came AFTER that point (pro-tip: don’t do what I did). . A lot has changed in this year of maintenance- I’m more conscious about eating whole foods, I eliminated artificial sweeteners (to the best of my ability- I’m not perfect 🙅🏼‍♀️), I’ve learned to love activities that make my body stronger - and these NSVs make me proud ♥️ . Left: the day I hit goal Right: now . #transformationtuesday
