I thought I would start to do an occasional post about what I typically eat in a day on WW! I usually post my food diaries on Instagram but I thought I would group everything together.

This is a typical Work from Home Day for me as I rarely go into the office much, but I can do one of those the next time I go.

On a typical work from home day, I start at 4:15am with an 8oz glass of water and my morning meds (thyroid, heart meds, and an 81mg aspirin). Then I immediately get dressed and head to Planet Fitness with one of these 16oz bottles of water. My aim is 80oz a day.

I drink this during my workout. Today I hit the treadmill and laid off strength training because yesterday was a full body workout.

When I get home from the gym, I fix my hubby a quick breakfast and grab a quick shower. Then I make my protein shake. I have been doing shakes pretty much every day since I had Gastric Bypass in 2009 as I have a requirement of 80 to 120g of protein a day. Being lactose intolerant, on top of having to limit soy has been difficult, but I have been experimenting. This month I have used the Care Of products.

I use 1c of unsweetened almond milk (1 Smart Point), 2 scoops if the Care Of Protein Powder (2 Smart Points) (blended just for me…it is a pea protein), and once a week I throw in Maca (0 Smart Points). I also add ice, cocoa powder and a tsp of espresso powder. My shake is a total of 3 Smart Points. Sometimes I add half a frozen banana. No, I don’t count Points. I am a WW rebel like that. Your mileage may vary. I also have another one of these.

After my shake today, I had breakfast. Today I had an egg scramble. Here is what went in it:

2oz of no nitrate added ham (1 Smart Point), 1 slice of Go Veggie Cheese (1 Smart Point), diced zucchini, mushrooms, green onion, and 2 eggs.

I had this with a 3 Smart Point English Muffin (total Low Carb Fail) sprayed with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray (0 Smart Points), 2 tablespoons of homemade guacamole (1 Smart Point) and 1c of fruit. I do measure my fruit. Total points for breakfast are 6 Smart Points, or 9 total for my morning.

I also make myself a cup of Cold Brew.

Zero Smart Points. I use 1 oz of the Evolve Plant Based RTD protein Shake (0 Smart Points), 1 Tablespoon of TJ’s Coconut Creamer (0 Smart Points), and the SF Torani Syrup.

Around 11:00am, I am ready for another bottle of water and the first of my daily supplements…600mg of chewable calcium.

At 12:30 it’s lunch time! Thanks to meal prep, I have this amazing Big Mac Salad all ready to go! It has 3oz of 96% lean ground beef (2 Smart Points), 1/4c of Go Veggie Cheese Shreds (2 Smart Points), 1 serving of Homemade Thousand Island Dressing (1 Smart Point), romaine, tomato, red onion, and diced dill pickles. Having that with more water and a banana. That saladis DELICIOUS…you MUST try it.

At 3:00 I am ready for a snack and all of this is just 2 Smart Points!

I am treating myself to a hot cup of coffee with 1 tablespoon of coconut creamer. Lots of veggies with homemade ranch dip (nonfat greek yogurt with ranch seasoning), an egg, and 2 tablespoons of hummus with Everything But The Bagel Seasoning. Also, half a cup of beautiful blueberries!

Also, here is said dog who I work so hard for. 😂

At 4:30 it is time for the last bottle of water and my afternoon supplements and meds.

I take my Care Of Supplements which include magnesium and garlic among other good things. Plus I take B12, Vitamin C, Colace (ha), 2nd calcium dose, multivitamins and a prebiotic with fiber. Just hit 88oz of water for the day! Huzzah!

5:45 and it is time for dinner. Taco Tuesday!

2 taco shells (3 Smart Points) with 1/4c of Go Veggie Shreds (2 Smart Points), 2 tablespoons of Guacamole (1 Smart Point) and 99% lean ground turkey and veggies. Zero Smart Point Black Bean and Corn Salad on the side. 6 Smart Points total for dinner. This puts me at 22 Smart Points for the day (out of 23).

Finally, a little something sweet before bed!

A little nonfat Greek yogurt with stevia, vanilla, cinnamon, strawberries, and 2 tablespoons of Almond Milk Reddi Whip.

Total Smart Points for the day is 22 out of my daily 23!

  1. All of these meals and foods look delicious!! Just curious, are you hungry at your meal times or do you just eat it bc it’s time for the meal snack?

    1. I generally don’t feel “hunger” because when you have had gastric bypass, there is no stomach acid looking for something to digest. But, my blood sugar drops and I know I need to eat.
