School went pretty quickly today. The first class was pretty controversial- that makes things interesting!

I planned ahead and packed my lunch today. I had a sandwich on light bread with ham and a blue cheese Laughing Cow cheese wedge along with Baked BBQ chips for 7 points.

I also had 2 Cuties clementines for 0 points.

I ate lunch in the car and then ran in Kohl’s because I had a coupon. I couldn’t find anything for myself, but I got hubby this very nice dress shirt for .86 cents! I am a bargain shopper. Winking smile

And then it was grocery time. I got lots of goodies today! I love that Strawberries are less than $2/lb. now!

I had a craving for something sweet, so I grabbed a Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg for 5 points. This was SO delicious! It’s been forever since I’ve had one of these!

I was hungry in the afternoon, so I had a banana for 0 points.

For supper, I made a salad: lettuce, baked salmon, tomato, avocado, mushrooms, walnuts and light ranch for a total of 9 points.

22211 011

I also had a slice of light toast topped with whipped chive cream cheese for 2 points.

22211 012

For dessert, I had FF/SF vanilla pudding with a little Cool Whip for 2 points.

After supper, I knew I had to get a workout in, but didn’t really feel like doing anything. So the plan was to read for school while I biked, but I’m not really liking the novel we’re reading right now, so I ended up calling my sister instead. That made the time go much faster! I biked 30 minutes and burned 120 calories.

I have 1 point left for the day! Just enough to have a fruit smoothie later on tonight. I’m thinking the Strawberry, Banana and Mango smoothie sounds PERFECT.

Tomorrow is WI day- I’m not sure what to expect based on the scale, but I do know that I have done SUPERB this week with eating and exercising. So I know I’ve done my best, and that’s all that matters!


  1. A Reese's egg! Easter is right around the corner! :D

  2. Those Reeses eggs! In the past, I used to buy the 6-packs of them and eat several at a time. Something about the wonderful peanut butter filling they put in there.

  3. That salad looks awesome. And I must try your orange and spinach smoothie. I'm hooked on blueberry, banana, spinach right now. Time to mix it up! Good luck at WI tomorrow!

  4. .86 cents = score!!

  5. Arent clemetines just he best thing ever?! That was a great deal on the shirt, good for you being such a great bargain hunter. I saw Easter candy when I was shopping today, it's creeping up, glad you enjoyed your treat. Treats are important!

  6. Awesome deal on the shirt! I'm so curious about your green smoothies...but so scared to try one with spinach in it...some part of me is having trouble getting over the fact that it's green!!

  7. OK, this post made me hungry LOL

  8. $0.86 for a dress shirt! Awesome!

  9. Oh the temptation of the Reese's egg. I know it too well. That and cadbury eggs.
