I woke up this morning to a foggy Friday. I’ll take them any way they come! FINALLY FRIDAY!
Funny thing happened this morning. I weigh everyday- but I don’t count the weight until WI day. I like to know how my weight fluctuates from day to day. My weight has been steady at 214.4 for 3 days, which is the 3.6 lb gain from my lowest. I felt like yesterday wasn’t my healthiest day- I tracked my points, etc. though. But I got on the scale this morning and had lost 3 lbs! Crazy! But I find that happens often, if I’m not losing and then all of the sudden I eat a meal that I wouldn’t call the healthiest, I will lose weight. I was happy to see a lower number this morning, although it doesn’t officially count! Does this happen to anyone else?
For breakfast, I had a toasted sandwich thin topped with almond butter and a sliced banana along with 1 cup of 1% milk for 9 points.
Why the sandwich thins so often? Well, since I forgot my list at home when I went grocery shopping on Tuesday- light bread was one of the things on the list that I forgot to pick up! Thankfully, we had a stash of sandwich thins in the freezer!
I wasn’t hungry on my first break so I didn’t eat anything.
For lunch, I had Chicken noodle soup and about 1 cup of squash for 3 points.
I also had a Banana Nut VitaTop, that I topped with a little cool whip for 3 points.
A very low point lunch, and I was very satisfied. The warm squash and soup felt good on my sore throat.
On my last break, I ate 1 cup of fresh pineapple for 0 points.
I also made a cup of Duchess grey tea.
And brought back a 100 calorie pack of Cocoa Roasted Almonds to snack on for 3 points.
Hubby and I had planned on going to Subway for supper tonight- but since he was going to be a little bit later again, I decided I would just go pick it up and bring it home. Plus, I had to get some Nyquil to replenish my supply of the miracle drug.
For supper, I had a 6” Turkey Sub with 1 serving of BBQ Pop Chips and Diet Cherry Pepsi for 10 points.
I had quite a few points left over tonight, so I made a sundae of sorts out of 1 serving vanilla ice cream, 1/2 oz. honey roasted peanuts, a sliced banana and chocolate syrup for 7 points. YUMMMM!
That puts me at using 1 weekly point for the day. I’m having a hard time eating veggies since I’m not feeling well. For example, I planned on having a salad with my soup at lunchtime but the thought of eating lettuce wasn’t appetizing at all. I’m getting my servings of fruit in for sure though- I know that I’ll be back to normal eating wise when I’m feeling better again- but it’s so hard to eat veggies when I’m sick!
Tonight, hubby and I plan on watching Mo’ Better Blues. It’s a homework assignment for one of my classes. I hope it’s good!
Have a great weekend!
