Thank you to those of you who gave such great advice to my cholesterol question. I appreciate it!
Yesterday was a super busy day. It was also weigh in day. I gained 1 lb. That’s no fun at all. I’m starting to get frustrated with myself—but that’s a post all of it’s own, which I think I should probably explore sometime soon to try to get to the bottom of this. I have established that I am VERY GOOD at maintaining… but that’s not the goal right now!
For breakfast this morning, I had cheerios with a banana and milk for 4 points.
I decided to do my homework in my warm bed. The house is so cold but we have a heater in the bedroom. I read about 10 pages and fell asleep—but only for about 15 minutes. But I made myself an iced coffee for 1 point and that helped a lot. My birthday roses are still pretty! For some reason, that light pink color reminds me of my Grandma and it makes me a little sad.
I also ate a Fiber One bar that my sister sent me for 4 points.
Doing homework in a warm bed probably isn’t the best idea. I could barely stay awake—but I got a lot done!
I ate a super early lunch of a sandwich made with light bread, swiss and turkey—heated up in the microwave—for 5 points.
I got ready to leave and just as I was heading out the door I got an email saying my first class was canceled. SAVED! We had a quiz scheduled for today that I wasn’t in the least bit prepared for and it’s postponed until Tuesday. Yay! So I stayed home a little while longer and worked on more homework.
And since I had already made a smoothie for the road, I drank that while doing my homework. It was a triple berry smoothie: strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. I also added 1/2 scoop of Jillian Michaels’ vanilla protein powder for a total of 2 points.
It’s been a long time since I made a smoothie! I need to get some spinach and start making green smoothies again. Yummy!
I don’t know what was with me today. I woke up not feeling hungry at all, so I ate a light breakfast. And then a couple of hours after breakfast I just got SOOO hungry! Which explains why I ate so much in the morning! I also ate a piece of light toast with peanut butter and a sliced banana for 4 points.
All of this before 11:00! My day starts at 5 A.M…but still! I was way more hungry than usual for some reason!
My two classes went fine today. They were over in no time!
After class, I went to Target to look for a new small table for my office. I found the perfect one.
On my way home, I ate animal crackers for 3 points.
And carrot sticks for 0 points.
It was SOOO windy today! I felt like I was going to blow away walking to and from class. When I got home, I arrived to my flower pots strewn all over the lawn. These pots didn’t even move an inch when we had 150 mph winds this past summer! Kind of funny how that works! haha
I was pretty excited to get our my new pink tool set from hubby and put together my new table. hehe
This is as far as I got before hubby called to say he was on his way home:
But I’m getting there and am off to go finish putting it together right now!
Tonight, Hubby and I are going out for dinner and to see The Help which I’ve been wanting to see!
Have a good one!
