It was nice to be able to sleep until 5 this morning and not have to get up to workout super early! I DO NOT miss going in to the office everyday!
For breakfast, I had a cup of cheerios with strawberries and milk for 4 points.
And then it was time for LEVEL 3 of the 30 Day Shred! This level was a KILLER! I LOVED IT! I burned 207 calories. I can’t believe I’ve completed 21 days!! I feel good when I get some activity in everyday. I’m going to keep this up.
My weight was up .2 this morning from last week’s weight. Not fun when it’s my WW weigh in day. I’ve been snacking on a serving of pistachios at night and I’m wondering if that’s making me retain water—so no pistachios for a while. I just love them because they’re so satisfying. I eat them and don’t want anything else—which is a good feeling.
I was hungry after working out, so I ate a banana for 0 points.
I sipped on an iced latte all morning for 1 point.
On my first break, I ate a light cheese stick and a nectarine for 1 point.
My Mom was nice enough to have lunch ready for me! Not only that, but she measured everything so I could figure my points!
Feel free to come visit more often, Mom!
She made me a salad with lettuce, carrots, green onions, feta, a boiled egg, chicken, and cashews along with cottage cheese and a nectarine for 7 points.
I also had a square of dark chocolate for 2 points.
I didn’t have the best day at work today and found out that my vacation time had been canceled in error (not on my part)—but thankfully my boss got it resolved. I was more than happy to sign out of work for this long weekend!!
Hubby got home in good time, so he took me to my WW meeting. My Mom came along with me and they said it was fine if she visited. There were others tagging along with members also, probably because of the holiday. I felt a lot more comfortable this time around and loved the meeting. I actually lost .2 lbs. weighing in at the meeting too! I thought for sure I would gain. So since joining the meetings, I’ve lost 3 lbs. I got a 5k charm today too!! They asked if anyone had done a 5k this summer so I raised my hand! FUN! I can’t wait to get another one next week—although I’m not sure if we’re just supposed to let them know or how that works.
I got a free sample of BBQ “Pop Chips”, the WW brand and I was STARVING after the meeting so I ate it. 2 points.
And the meeting didn’t have air conditioning, so I texted hubby to bring me a cold drink when he picked me up. He brought me this for 0 points:
And then we met my Dad for supper. We went to a restaurant that my parent’s went to on their first date, except a different location. And they’re just as much in love today.
The building was old and had a nice atmosphere. And because it’s Iowa, it had a big painting of a cow for décor.
It was DELISH! We started with a Spinach Artichoke dip appetizer. I had 1 slice Paseano of bread with about 1 Tbs. dip for an estimation of 5 points.
And then came the garden salad which I got with Fat Free French. I ate 1/2 of the crouton—3 points.
And I probably should have resisted (but didn’t) the garlic bread. I really don’t know how to count this so I’ll go by WW and count it as 6 points.
I ordered the chicken parmesan for my meal—it was SOOOOOO good! I ate about half for an estimate of 10 points.
It also came with a side of spaghetti and marinara and I literally ate two small bites and took the rest home. I’ll count it as 1 point, although I probably didn’t even eat that much.
And hubby and me:
And we decided to grab a bit of ice cream, which was perfect for a day like today—muggy and in the 90’s. This was a local ice cream shop that is run by a Dairy in the area. I had a scoop of Peanut Butter Cup ice cream. 5 points.
And that’s it for eating! I used 13 weekly points today, but I enjoyed the supper out and eating that kind of food isn’t something we do very often.
And this greeted us when we got home. How cute!!
I’m looking forward to this long weekend!! I need to get some extra activity in soon, probably tomorrow. My WW leader said tonight that, “Exercise can cover a multitude of sins.” You said it, Sister!
