It’s so hard to get going on Mondays. But I rolled out of bed and had a light breakfast of 1 cup cheerios, 1/2 cup 1% milk and 1/2 cup blueberries. I have been parched for the last couple of days, despite drinking tons of water. So my goal for the day was to drink lots and lots of water. I had already drank 6 cups of water by 8 AM.
I woke up with a headache, probably related to being so thirsty. So after breakfast I went back to sleep for another hour. I woke up feeling much more refreshed- but still dragging, because after all, it is Monday. :) I whipped up an iced coffee to start my morning off.
Come break time, I was feeling hungry so I had 1/2 cup of cherries and 1 boiled egg. I was craving a boiled egg for some reason- Yum!
With people missing at work today, we were super busy. But it made the time go by fast. For lunch I had 1 serving of whole wheat pasta and 1/2 cup of marinara sauce. I also had about 1/2 cup of green beans. It never ceases to amaze me how much whole wheat pasta you can have for so few points! And it really fills you up.
I was craving something sweet, but was stuffed, so I mixed in a sugar free Orange Fruit Punch in some water.
For my last break I had 7 wheat crackers with 1 Tbs. red pepper hummus for 2 points.
and some of these delights.
Just before I signed back in to work the UPS man delivered my product for my review of CSN Stores! Can’t wait to use it!
I brought back some delicious ice water with lemon.
I save the majority of my points for supper and any snacks I want in the evening. I’m not hungry in the morning and afternoon and I’m eating plenty, but I find that I use more point in the evenings, which is fine.
For supper I had 2.5 oz grilled chicken topped with my homemade peachy mustard sauce, 2 corn on the cobs (we’re trying to eat this stuff before it goes bad, we have so much!), zucchini (ditto), and brown rice. It made for a delicious supper.
And I completely forgot to take a picture of it… and it was so pretty!
For dessert, I had homemade peach cobbler and a serving of vanilla ice cream.
Hubby and I did a strength training workout for 20 minutes. This time I used 10 lb weights and could feel the burn a lot more than with the 8’s. I don’t want to get huge, I just want to tone my arms mostly. How do I know how much to do?
I have 3 points left over- I’ll probably have a little snack before bedtime. I’m glad that Monday is over!
