Today was another morning of sleeping in and it felt great!
For breakfast, I had 1 slice of light wheat toast topped with PB and a sliced banana along with 1 cup of 1% milk for 5 points.
As always, I struggled and struggled to get myself to workout- but finally I decided that I didn’t want to deal with guilty feelings all day, so I just worked out. After I got stated, I felt pretty good so I completed 2.5 miles and I am very proud of my workout today. I walked 1/4 mile, ran 2 miles at 4.5 mph, and walked 1/4 mile. I am progressing! Once again, the HR monitor didn’t work because it gets interference from my treadmill or something, but I earned 9 APs!
For lunch, I made lunch based on a HG recipe. Grilled cheese with turkey bacon. My version was 4 points. I always dip my grilled cheese in ketchup- anyone else do this? I also had a side salad with light poppy seed dressing for 1 point. I also had some Diet A&W Root beer.
For dessert, hubby and I split a Blueberry Greek yogurt and I topped mine with 1/2 cup of blueberries and a tad Cool Whip Free for 2 points. Yum!
Like little kids, we excitedly headed out to go sledding after lunch! It was fun. The first time I went down the hill, I veered to the side, lost control, and went into snow that was about 2’ deep. I had snow up my pants, up my shirt, in my ears and all over my face. BRR! But I got back up and continued down the hill. lol. I forgot how steep that hill is! Whew- it’s quite the workout walking up the hill! I wore my HR monitor and I burned 313 calories in 45 minutes of sledding. The WW Activity tracker said that I earned 11 AP’s. I was REALLY exhausted after this. Climbing that hill was hard work- especially after running 2.5 miles this morning! My camera battery died, but hubby did get one picture:
I was wearing 3 pairs of pants, 2 shirts and a coat that’s about 2 sizes too large- but it worked!
We came home and got warmed up! I made hot chocolate for us to sip on. Don’t you just love the new mug my parents gave me? LOVE IT!
I also had 4 Joseph’s Sugar Free Chocolate Chip cookies and 2 hugs and 2 kisses for 6 points.
It was the perfect snack after sledding! We cuddled up and watched Around the World in 80 Days- it was pretty cute!
I also snacked on 2 clementines for 0 points.
For supper I made something new- fish tacos (I had 2). They were actually REALLY good! I topped them with avocado, tomato, light sour cream and salsa. I also had fat free refried beans. This was a total of 10 points.
And then I made a little quesadilla with a tad bit of 2% cheese and the leftover tomatoes for 2 points.
For dessert, I had a banana drizzled with chocolate syrup for 1 point.
After supper, I sipped on some Duchess Gray tea for 0 points.
Hubby and I decided to play a game of Scrabble- being on vacation is awesome! Hubby won by a landslide…he’s good at Scrabble!
While we played, I snacked on some pistachios and a chocolate kiss and hug for 5 points.
That put me at my points target for the day. I will admit I had a couple bites of some other snacks after that- but I’m ok- nothing major. But I also just realized I forgot to count the little Quesadilla I made for supper- oops!
Tomorrow is WI day and I’m hoping my weight will be what it was this morning or less! I’m not worried about being in the red this week because of all that we had going on. I feel like I really made great strides in respect to how I will handle holidays from now on and that’s something to be very proud of- it’s PROGRESS! I don’t have to meet goal ASAP- it’s a journey and I’m slowly changing my habits- and that’s what is most important- not the number on the scale TOMORROW- but what I do with the rest of my life- and the scale will reflect that in the long run- it already has!
