i've been doing Weight Watchers since january.
i gave myself a goal of 33 pounds to lose.
and i have lost 22. bam.
now...the lessons i've learned and tricks of the trade are for another post.
but the point of this is that i have had to change a LOT of my eating habits.
and by a lot, i mean, all of them.
something i have now learned about myself is that i get a sweet tooth at 2 different times of the day.
the rest of the day, i could care less about cupcakes & candy.
but right after the kids go down for naps and down for the night, i crave anything sweet that i can get my hands on.
it has been good to recognize this about myself.
sometimes i also crave a margarita right around the same time.
but maybe i should keep those thoughts to myself.
so i have been looking for healthy, quick, & satisfying recipes that fulfill that sweet tooth so that i'm not wanting more when i'm done with it.
i went looking on the weight watchers website & found a few recipes that i want to try.
this month i tried the chocolate root beer float.
i'm not a big root beer fan, and i can give or take chocolate, but it looked easy and the froth drew me in like froth tends to do.
now the only thing i did different than the recipe is that i decided to get greek fat free frozen yogurt instead of just regular. there was no change in health value at all, i just like the taste of greek yogurt a lot so i thought i'd try it.
listen, you guys. do this recipe.
so easy. so fast. so light and refreshing. and just the pop of sweetness i needed to satisfy me.
the tiny splash of chocolate gives it a good spin on a reg float.
and you know what else? it feels good to know that it isn't fattening.
i made sure to measure out my portions and felt good about it when i was done.
i call that a successful pintertest.
p.s. this may shock the world, but i got a pinterest. i have no clue what i'm doing. i had to ask my techo friend how to pin something. i had one a few years ago for like 3 months and it has changed drastically since then. so far, i have pinned two things and continually forget my login. i'll let you know my name when i figure it out.
you should too.
