Hubby and I were excited to see that the Hawkeyes won the Insight bowl game last night! I watched about the first half and then fell asleep- but hubby let me know they won! Go Hawks!
I slept until 8 AM this morning! The longer that the vacation lasts, the longer I sleep in- I got 10 hours of sleep and it felt AMAZING!
I stepped on the scale this morning and weighed 214.8! That’s a 1 lb. loss this week and I’m so happy about that! Pretty good for a holiday week, huh? I have lost 73.2 lbs and I’m getting closer to that lowest weight again! Not to mention, 212 is the lowest weight I EVER remember weighing! Exciting!
For breakfast this morning, I made HG French toast, I altered the recipe a bit to make it a little lower in points. I sliced banana on top and also had a cup of 1% milk. All of this for a total of 7 points. It was DELISH!
After breakfast, we got started on replacing the windows in my office. It gets SO cold in there because our windows are ancient and there is NO insulation in the walls! here are some before shots:
I sipped on some Duchess Gray tea to keep warm- in another new mug from my parents!
For lunch, I made a new recipe. Shrimp and Feta pizza. It was really good and very pretty! I had 2 pieces for 9 points.
I also had a small side salad with light Italian dressing for 1 point.
For dessert, I had Schwann’s light chocolate brownie fudge ice cream for 4 points.
While hubby finished putting in the last window by himself, I made some Kisses/Hugs Pretzel Smores that will be for New Years Eve- and maybe a few before then! They come out to only 1 point each and they’re so cute!
So I had a cup of coffee with peppermint mocha creamer and a Kiss Pretzel smore for 3 points.
I also baked a loaf of bread for New Years Eve.
And by mid afternoon- the project was complete! I’m loving it!
After that, hubby and I sat down to relax a while.
For supper, I made homemade chicken noodle soup for 2 points.
I also had PB&J for 6 points.
And then I had to sample the bread I baked, Cheddar Bacon bread, and I ended up having 1 slice (1/2 shown) for 4 points. This bread seriously tastes like Cheezits.
For dessert, I had 2 smores for 2 points.
Tonight I am going to have a snack of fruit- 2 clementines and a banana for 0 points.
I had to take a picture of the cats piling up on hubby. haha The cats drive me nuts when I’m trying to do something on my computer and they climb all over me- but not hubby!
I ended up using 4 weekly points today. Now hubby and I are going to watch Toy Story 1. Can you believe he hasn’t seen any of the Toy Story movies? I’ve seen all of them except 3. We’ve downloaded all 3 to watch over our vacation. Looking forward to it!
