A Day on Track

I woke up with a killer headache this morning. I definitely didn’t hydrate enough on our long bike ride yesterday. Lesson learned! But, thankfully, it wasn’t anything that ibuprofen couldn’t fix first thing in the morning.

For breakfast, I had light toast with PB and a sliced banana along with a glass of milk for 5 points.


I hate those stringy things on bananas. Ewww! And I can see one coming off of the banana onto the toast in this picture—grosses me out. How about you? lol

And also started drinking lots of water!

I spent the little time I had before work doing my homework. I don’t know where this weekend went but I didn’t get any homework done!

While working, I sipped on coffee with SF hazelnut creamer for 1 point.

On my break, I ate a Chobani Lemon Greek Yogurt. This was a new flavor to me—it was delish! 4 points.

I also had a serving of Cheerios for 3 points. I forgot how much I love these as a snack. Yummy!

10311 003

For lunch, I had a BBQ chicken salad for 6 points. I needed to use up that BBQ chicken before it went bad. Delicious as always! Those are chickpeas on the salad—not peanuts. Winking smile

And I couldn’t resist a Fiber One brownie for 2 points.

I was absolutely exhausted today—I think it was from the bike ride yesterday. My body was sore and tired. So I had another cup of coffee for 1 point.


By later in the day I was genuinely hungry. I was feeling shaky and light headed—still headachy. I ate a plum for 0 points.

I didn’t want to use any more points until supper time since I didn’t have many left. It’s ok to be hungry, right? lol

For supper, I ate grilled chicken, FF cottage cheese, squash and green beans for 7 points. I also had a glass of water with fresh lemon—SOOO Good!

And finished it up with fresh strawberries for 0 points.

I have 4 points left for the evening for a little snack. I think today was a great day for me!

I am so exhausted, I know my body is telling me to take it easy after the bike ride yesterday. So I’m going to take a rest day—so early in my new exercise motivation, I know! But I am truly sore and tired. I plan on working on some homework and maybe getting to bed early.

Have a good one!


  1. Rest days are just as important as workout days.

    Chobani has lemon flavor? I hope they get it out here to Oregon stat!

  2. Awesome day! I'm learning to read my bodies signals. Good you can read them since they are important. I don't know if you've posted this before but do you make that bbq chicken in a slow cooker for the week or something? It must be delicious since I see it a lot ;) I'd love the recipe if you have free time between all the homework and work and life! Keep up the good work!

  3. Hill rides are tough. I am not surprised you are feeling it today :D

    Good day for just light walking!

  4. You have been such an inspiration to me, that I joined weight watchers on Saturday. Best decision of my life!
    I tried the Lemon Chobani last night, it was ok, but I don't think I'll get it again, the pineapple is so much better.


  5. I havent tried those brownies yet. You are seriously my eating hero!
