I Love Holiday Weeks!

It’s Monday! I’m happy this morning for a few different reasons: first, it’s a Holiday week- so I only have to work two days; second, no school this week; third, the Thankful Healthy Blogger 5k is Thursday (Have you signed up yet?); fourth, my parents come to visit this weekend and at an even better fifth, hubby doesn’t have to leave this week!!!

I hope you all had wonderful weekends! Mine was nice and relaxing. Make sure to check out my posts on Calorie Burning Power Cleaning and my RevAbs Review and GIVEAWAY!

I started the morning off right with a bowl of oatmeal and a sliced banana along with 1 cup of milk for 6 points.

After hubby left (the goodbye wasn’t nearly as sad this morning), I hopped on the stationary bike for a quick workout. I biked 5 miles in 21 minutes, burning 115 calories. Jessica is hosting a challenge this week- that instead of taking seconds of foods, we should take healthy seconds with things like exercise. So I am going to try to participate this week! Check it out!

On my first break, I ran over to the post office and mailed some things for hubby and then came back home quick and made a snack of Tomato Basil Hummus and 1/2 serving of Special K crackers for 1.5 points.

I also brought back a small plum for .5 point.

For lunch, I had a new delicious salad made up of a couple cups of lettuce, a serving of HG BBQ chicken, and 1 Tbs. sliced almonds for 4 points. This was absolutely AMAZING!

I also had a serving of Food Should Taste Good Sweet Potato chips for 3 points.

And for dessert, I have a HG Chocolate Chip softy for 1 point. I cannot believe these are only 1 point!

And then I was feeling snacky… and had 1/2 serving each of peanuts and mini chocolate chips for 2.5 points.

On my last break, I had a coffee with a little eggnog latte creamer for 1 point.

For supper, I made sandwich thin pizzas with a little mozzarella cheese, a slice of ham, and a little bit of ground pork sausage along with a side of green beans for 4.5 points.

For dessert, I made HG Funky Monkey Bars. I had one for 1 point. Delish!

After that, I decided to get my Healthy Second workout in for the day. I rode the stationary bike for 30 minutes while listening to the Two Fit Chicks Podcast. I burned 128 calories and biked 7 miles. I have now completed 57.15 miles of my 100 mile challenge that needs to be done by Sunday night. I know I can meet the goal!

I have 3 points left for the day. I am going to enjoy some Jolly Time Healthy Pop popcorn and watch BL.
