Lots of Surprises!

Last night, I am proud to say I did really well with my snacking. I stopped myself and asked, “Is this going to put me closer to my goal?” And I chose to eat grapes and 1 oz. of cheese. A Healthy, 2 point snack. Although earlier, I did eat a small banana bread type bar that my MIL offered, which I counted as 3 points. But that’s not where I’ve been struggling. The struggling is with the evening snacking- and I feel I did a good job!

I woke up early this morning to study for a test. I will be happy when this semester is OVER!

For breakfast this morning, I had an egg white omelet with ham and 2% cheese (cooked in a little olive oil) along with a banana and a glass of milk for 9 points.

And then it was back to studying. Before leaving for school, I brewed some coffee and added half and half for 1 point.

I don’t usually bring coffee with me into class but I was much more alert today! Things are starting to wind down at school now- which is a relief in one way- but I also have one big project and paper left to do. I took a test today in one of my classes and I felt like I aced it- that’s always a good feeling! So I got out of class earlier today, which gave me some time to make a delicious salad for lunch.

I had a BBQ chicken salad with leftover grilled chicken. It included lettuce, spinach, broccoli slaw, tomato, feta, dry roasted peanuts, black beans and BBQ sauce. It was amazingly delicious and only 8 points. 32 grams of protein. I’m trying!

A while later, I satisfied my sweet tooth by having an AE Dairy clementine Greek yogurt for 5 points.

With 14 grams of protein- it’s a good choice!

The work day went pretty quickly- so that was nice!

I was excited to get a delivery this afternoon! Hubby sent me flowers!! Smile How sweet! And it’s been such a hard week- they were just what I needed

For supper, I had a salmon burger with broccoli, mushrooms and alfredo sauce for 9 points.

For dessert, I had FF/SF vanilla pudding for 2 points.

That leaves me with 1 point left over! What I’m really happy about are my percentages for the day: 40.45% Carbs, 28.87% Fat and 30.68% Protein. I finally met my protein goal!!

As I was writing this, hubby called and asked me what I was doing. He told me he was in the garage but I didn’t believe him…but sure enough- there he was!!! That was SUCH a nice surprise!!

So I’m going to sign off and enjoy some time with my best friend. Smile
