week numero tres's Sunday night at 8:03.

I have no idea what we will be eating this week.

Hold one moment while I scour Pinterest and calculate points...

Ok, I'm back.

We have a little pork leftover from our Brown Sugar & Balsamic Glazed Pork--so we'll probably be having sandwiches Monday night.

As for the others...

Spaghetti Squash Au Gratin (3 points/serving; 6 servings)

I've had spaghetti squash once. I remember it being really good. This should be interesting! 

Pair with veggies...or meat if you HAVE to!

We'll either have broccoli (cooked in the oven) or a salad....or maybe we'll just eat the whole thing!

Easy Garlic Chicken (8 points/serving; 4 servings)

I allowed for a 4 oz. chicken breast/serving in the points calculation.

We'll be having green beans and maybe some rice....

Thanks for the comments--if ya'll have any great recipes to share (Robyn--the cookies with avocado?!) you can either leave them below in the comment section, or email me (

On to week THREE of this exercise plan.

Did I mention that over two weeks of being "good" and exercising (5 out of 7 days), I have yet to loose a WHOLE pound?!

Maybe this week...

Good luck!


  1. The spaghetti squash looks good! I made the other spaghetti from week one and really liked it. Brookes was a HUGE fan!

  2. So, we had the pork loin recipe tonight and it was a hit! My picky sister in law even liked it. It was SO yummy!!! Now, I'm going to return the favor. Here is the recipe for the fudge brownie cookies {wish I could give you the points+, but I'm no longer a paying WW customer. Sorry!}

    1/4 c. All-Purpose flour or whole wheat pastry flour
    1/4 c. cocoa powder
    1/2 tsp. baking soda
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1 c. sugar
    6 tbsp. veg. oil
    6 tbsp. mashed ripe avocado (about 2 avocados)
    1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
    1/2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips

    Preheat oven to 375. Sift the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt together into a small bowl. Set aside. In medium bowl, blend the sugar, oil, avocado, and vanilla until the mixture is homogenous {whatever that means?!} Stir in the flour mixture and chocolate chips. The dough will be rather stiff. Shape the dough into walnut-size balls, flatten them with your palm, and place them a few inches apart on baking sheets - ungreased. {Or if you're me, just drop spoonfulls of batter on the cookie sheet and be done.} Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, but no longer. They should have an external crust forming, but be soft in the center.

    I think these are super yummy, but my girls don't like them. They may be just as bad as other cookies as far as points+ b/c of the sugar -- I don't know. Hope you get a chance to try them out and let me know what you think. Just play around with it. Every batch I've had has tasted a little different -- maybe depends on the ripeness of the avocado?
