Shopping with Mom

I woke up with a terrible headache this morning. It was probably weather related- who knows, but it’s not fun! I was able to sleep until 7 AM this morning, which was nice. A quick glance out the window showed the weather that was predicted last night- showers and a high wind warning- fun!

I was surprised to step on the scale this morning and see a big loss- I’m hoping that it sticks around for tomorrow!

I started my day off with a nice, hot, aromatic cup of Pumpkin Spice Coffee with FF vanilla creamer for .5 point.

I had reading to finish up for class in the morning, so I got right to that! It was hard to read with a headache- but it finally started to go away- reading this would give ANYONE a headache though…

It is understandable, it’s just VERY slow reading!

Is anyone else getting random comments on old posts? It’s so obviously spam but they just make me laugh- here’s the most recent comment on a post back in July- “These things are very slow, so as not to waste the time I took random pictures of the place. Here are some photos of today.This was seen to be good looking things for people have their ideas going.” At first I wondered if they were dissing me by making fun of my picture taking. lol Winking smile I apologize if you are a real person trying to make a real comment- but I highly doubt it as your name is “payday loan”. But you made me laugh. Thumbs up

For breakfast, I made 1 cup of oats with a sliced banana mixed in along with 1 cup of 1% milk for 6 points. This was especially filling this morning for some reason!

Shortly after, we headed into town so I could go to school. I was anxious for class to end! My Mom dropped me off and picked me back up after class and we headed to Panera Bread for lunch. I had the You Pick 2- broccoli cheddar soup, Asian Sesame Chicken Salad and a whole wheat baguette for 12 points.

After that, I wanted to take my Mom to the new bakery that has the best cupcakes. My Mom loves white wedding cake, so I knew she would love this place. I had a Raspberry Love cupcake and coffee with a  little creamer, that I am estimating at 4.5 points.

My Mom embarrassed me by wanting to take my picture in this dinky little place with all kinds of people around. lol. Do I look embarrassed? Winking smile102610 011

And Mom with her white cupcake. Smile

After that it was shopping time- and I mean shopping time! We spent the entire day shopping! I got some good deals, but didn’t spend too much or buy too much (in case hubby is reading this). hehe. It was a fun time! I even bought two new skirts in size 18. Did you read that!??! Size 18! I was so excited!!

For supper, we went to Texas Roadhouse. I had one of these:

I am estimating at 5 points. I also had just a few peanuts for maybe 1 point.

102610 014

I also had a house salad with just a tad of low fat ranch dressing for 2.5 points? I really don’t know for sure. There was just a little bit of each topping.

102610 015

For supper, I ate half of my pork chop and the sweet potato with a little brown sugar for 8.5 points? Just estimates. But I was trying to listen to my body, and I think I did fine.

102610 016

We almost forgot that I needed to get some groceries, but remembered at the last minute! We didn’t get home until 9:30, and I was a little hungry so I ate a medium banana for 1.5 points.

102610 017

And I guess I ended up going over my points by about 10.5 if I estimated right. I don’t feel bad about how I ate today though. I feel like I made good choices. Sure, I probably could have forgone the bread at Texas Roadhouse- but we NEVER eat there and I love their bread- and it’s much better than the 3 I would have eaten pre-lifestyle change! I drank lots of water, too.

I’m hoping weigh in tomorrow goes ok! I’m feeling positive tonight based on how my body feels- but we shall see! Smile


  1. Payday loan - my mind must be on food -
    Can I borrow a candy bar?
    You look great!

  2. I finally get to see you! You are so pretty :) !!

    Loved the cupcake it looks YUM!

    Congrats on the NSV! Size 18's great :)

  3. Great work on the bread basket! I really struggle with it!

  4. Lol the hubs and I at there last week and I ate nearly the same thing. It is so hard to only eat one of those rolls, but I did as well! I ate a teeny tiny bit of caesar dressing on my salad (I dip instead of pour), put splenda and a teeny tiny bit of butter on the sweet potato, and I actually had the ribs (sooo good!) but I only ate half. Oh and I had maybe 5/6 peanuts too. Glad to hear you had a great shopping trip!

  5. MMMM, I LOVE Texas Roadhouse!! I haven't been there in FOREVER tho. I always want to go to the one in Iowa City before/after a game, but it's ALWAYS packed.

    Good job on listening to your body and exercising portion control!

  6. Thank you so much for the wonderful day we had together! I am SO PROUD of you and you look beautiful inside and out!-MOM

  7. Shopping with mom is a great fun. All this foods are looks so tasty. Morning with hot, aromatic cup of Pumpkin Spice Coffee with FF vanilla creamer is simply best. 1 cup of oats with a sliced banana is good breakfast.
