For breakfast this morning I had oatmeal with a sliced banana and a little peanut butter along with 1 cup of 1% milk for 8 points.
And then it was off to school! I’m glad that I’m done for the week.
On my way home, I snacked on baby carrots for 0 points.
For lunch, I made a BBQ chicken quesadilla along with avocado and baked BBQ Lay’s for 11 points. I was craving the chips today.
It was DELISH! I also had FF/SF chocolate pudding for 2 points.
This time with hubby being gone has been harder than the last time. I don’t know why? Maybe the first week is the hardest. I keep catching myself wanting to eat, knowing that I am just wanting to eat to try to fill an emotional void. I KNOW that I want that full fat brownie with frosting because I am missing hubby. I guess that’s the key thing. If I can recognize it, then I can stop it. I have not had the brownie w/ frosting, BTW.
Before signing in for work, I made some Duchess Grey tea for 0 points.
I got to sign out of work about 15 minutes early, which was nice! I decided to work out right away to make sure I fit it in for the day. I have been looking for my workout dvd that came with my fitness ball and I finally found it today! So I did that workout. WOW- it’s a killer! It was 30 minutes long and I burned 143 calories. My muscles were sore and shaky when I was done!
For supper, I had one of my favorite meals. Whole wheat pasta with alfredo, teriyaki chicken, tomato, and broccoli for a total of 11 points.
Yummmm! I love that stuff!
For dessert, I had banana soft serve for 0 points.
And then it was time to write a paper for school. While I worked on my paper, I sipped on Decaf Dark Chocolate Truffle coffee for 0 points.
That took me a couple of hours but once I start writing I get lost in it. I really do love writing papers and researching. Sometimes I dread getting started on it, but once I’m started- I could write for hours on end. I guess that’s why I’m an English major. I just hope I can find a job I love when I graduate!
I still have 2 points left for the day. I might eat a small snack and watch an episode of something to relax.
I am so excited because hubby comes home tomorrow!! There is a light at the end of the tunnel. I will try not to think about him leaving again on Monday…!
