When Getting the Mail is Fun

It’s Friday!! My favorite day of the work week because Hubby comes home today!! I always wake up with a smile on Fridays. Smile

For breakfast, I had a toasted sandwich thin topped with a sliced banana along with 1 cup of 1% milk for 7 points.

And then it was time for work. I was excited when the mail man rang the door bell because I got this:

I won Darci’s giveaway and the prize arrived!!

What a pretty package! I love everything in it! We all know how much I love my HG cookbooks and this is one I didn’t have, plus Larabars and Subway- who could ask for more? Plus the neat little Iowa magnet and bag- very awesome giveaway! Thanks so much Darci!!

With such a nice note. Smile

So for my first break I had to have one of those Larabar Cashew Cookies for 5 points.

For lunch I had a sandwich made of a sandwich thin, deli turkey, reduced fat provolone (all heated up) and then I added lettuce and tomato. I also had the leftover tomato soup and a serving of Food Should Taste Good sweet potato chips. All for a total of 9 points.

And for dessert, I had my favorite fruit combination of 1/2 cup each of strawberries and raspberries and a small banana topped with chocolate syrup for 2.5 points.

On my last break, I was craving both coffee and hot chocolate. So I made a mocha out of coffee and a packet of diet hot cocoa. I topped it off with a little bit of FF whipped cream for 0 points. Yum!

Hubby got home at 3:30! I was so happy to see him, but I had another hour left of work. It went pretty quickly though!

I had him snap a picture of me in my 70 lb. goal reward!

After work, we headed out for supper. We went to Panera tonight because we had a gift card. I ordered the You Pick 2- broccoli cheddar soup, asian sesame salad, and a whole grain baguette for a total of 12 points.

111210 018

We ran a few errands after that. I picked up a couple of ingredients to make cinnamon rolls for my new HG cookbook from Darci! I have been craving cinnamon rolls FOREVER- so I’m excited to try a low calorie recipe tomorrow morning!

We had dessert at home tonight. Leftover Cake on the Beach for 3 points. YUM!

I did use quite a few weekly points today, but I’m still on track. I am going to have some Jolly Time Healthy Pop while catching up on Biggest Loser.

Have a great weekend!!
