Why do the weekends have to go so quickly? I had an awesome birthday weekend! Be sure to check out my birthday recap if you haven’t already. I also posted a recipe for a Godiva Coffee Salted Caramel Pecan Bark Mocha Latte Recipe for only 5 Points Plus—this is so good too! A Journey to Thin was also chosen as one of the top 50 health blogs by dietspotlight.com.
I am going to be honest and say that I didn’t track my points from Thursday through Sunday. It was liberating not to be obsessing about food! I ate when I was hungry and stopped when I was full. I barely snacked. I wasn’t perfect—but I was satisfied. And you know what? I usually gain a few pounds over the weekend, and I am only up 1 lb. this morning which means I probably did better than normal! I tend to lose most of my weight at the beginning of the week. Maybe I should try this intuitive eating thing, although I’d be a little scared!
For breakfast this morning, I had oatmeal with fresh strawberries and a glass of milk for 7 points.
I wasn’t very thrilled about working today—but so is life. While working, I sipped on coffee with french vanilla creamer for 1 point.
For my first break, I ate a light cheese stick for 1 point.
For lunch, I made a chicken taco salad for 6 points. I added Garbanzo beans to this salad—they are so good!
I also had a Yoplait Crème Carmel parfait for 3 points.
This had a nice texture and was very thick and creamy, but probably not worth 3 points.
On my break, I ate an apple and peanut butter for 3 points.
I was having a tough day at work and I let it get the best of me. On my last break I ate a turtle for 2 points.
And some Dove chocolate for 2 points.
I brought coffee back to my desk for 1 point.
For supper, I made butternut squash soup, broccoli and grilled cheese for 7 points.
I finished it up with FF/SF chocolate pudding for 2 points.
After supper, hubby and I headed out for a walk. It rained all day. It looked so cold and gloomy outside. But the rain stopped long enough for a nice 34 minute walk. It was a breezy, chilly, gloomy, yet beautiful fall walk! Loved it! We walked 1.77 miles and I burned 220 calories.
With the weather, the butternut squash soup and my cravings for warm coffee—it’s definitely fall!
Overall, it was a pretty good day!
