Back to Photographing

I think I’ll have a little more time to post pictures up of what I eat, so I’m going to give this another try!

I had today off of work so that I could slave over some papers for my finals. All in all, I would rather be home writing papers than at work. :) I wish I could find a job where I could work from home.

I woke at up 6:30, this is still sleeping in 1 1/2 hours for me, but I wish I could have done a little better!

 Eats 051

I ate a quick breakfast of peanut butter toast, a banana and 2 cups of 1% milk for a total of 8.5 pts.

 

 

So I wrote papers and took breaks in between to do laundry and unload the dishwasher. After I finished up my papers I decided to spice things up a little bit and do the 30 Day Shred. This was my second time to do this workout and it killed me again! It’s so high intensity for me that I get 4 AP’s out of it for the 20 minute workout. I’m hoping that I don’t have any trouble walking tomorrow like I did last time!!

After that I ate a slice of leftover home-made pizza (whole-wheat crust), a small side salad with light Italian dressing, and 1 cup of canned peaches for a total of 7 pts.

After lunch, I headed off to school to drop off my papers. It feels soooo good to be done! I sold one of the books that I don’t want to keep and got $10 back. Isn’t crazy how you pay $75 for a book and you only get $10 back for it when you sell it back? The university book stores take advantage of students.

Then I headed over to Von Maur and did a little shopping. My husband needed a new belt and I always have to check out the clearance shoe room! I’ve had my eye on these Bandolino shoes for months now and they had them in their for $17!! I just couldn’t resist that and even bought a size smaller than I usually would. My feet my shrink when I lose weight, right? ;) They still fit, but could be more comfy! They’re more of a winter shoe, so I’ll put them away for next year. I ran into Walgreens to get a gift card for my Mom for mother’s day. It’s just easier to mail a gift card than a gift.While I was there I picked up a trail mix and Starbucks Frappucinno, making it evident that I still don’t know how to pick out healthy food because it was a total of 9 pts!!!

The rest of the afternoon I successfully stayed out of the fridge! I was so hungry, I think it’s probably because of a poor breakfast. I need to make sure I eat more protein for breakfast. I sat outside in the sun and read a book. Just enjoying my day off while it lasts.

Eats 055 For supper I had grilled chicken w/ BBQ sauce and 1 roasted sweet potato for  5 points.

 

 

And of course I have to have dessert every night. I had a slice of angel food cake with a small amount of caramel drizzled over it for 2 points.Eats 056

Later on my MIL offered me a small frosted sugar cookie, no picture, but I’ll count it as 1.5 points.

Total points used: 33

Allowed: 33

Activity: 20 minutes of 30 Day Shred
