Weight Watcher Wednesday!

Well this week was my first weigh in of Weight Watchers Round 2!
I lost 2.2 pounds... I was hoping to lose more but a loss is a loss.
This is my first WWW post so each Wednesday I am going to set three goals for the upcoming week and a recipe I tried during the week that I liked. So here it goes!

1. Walk twice this week outside of my running class
2. Only eat out on Friday and Saturday.
3. Only drink on Saturday.

Tuscan Turkey Slow Cooker Pasta (4pts)
1 pound(s) boneless, skinless turkey breast(s), cut into 1-inch pieces
16 oz canned kidney beans, drained and rinsed
15 oz canned tomato sauce
29 oz canned stewed tomatoes, Italian-style
4 oz mushroom(s), canned, drained and sliced
1 medium green pepper(s), chopped
1 small onion(s), chopped
2 medium stalk(s) celery, chopped
3 medium garlic clove(s), chopped
1 cup(s) water
1 tbsp Italian seasoning
6 oz uncooked whole-wheat spaghetti, broken in half
    Place all ingredients, except spaghetti, in a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low heat for 4 hours or until vegetables are tender.

    Turn setting to high heat, stir in spaghetti and cover. Stir again after 10 minutes, cover and cook until pasta is tender, about 20 minutes more. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.


  1. Yay! So glad to find another WWW blogger! Congrats on the weight loss so far! Anyone who diets knows that to lose even 2 pounds takes a lot of work!

  2. Good for you, keep us updated on how it goes!
