Down Another Size

I woke up this morning still relaxed from the Candlelight Yoga. I will definitely be doing that again. So impressed.

For breakfast, I ate a slice of Earth Grains toast with PB and a sliced banana along with a chicken sausage link and a glass of milk for 8 points.

I spent a little time planning out the next couple of weeks. This week is pretty easy going since it’s the last week before Thanksgiving break. I didn’t meet my goal of finishing all of this week’s homework over the weekend because my professor emailed MORE reading. But I did get today’s homework done over the weekend. Instead, hubby and I had the entire day on Saturday together shopping, dining out and just enjoying the day. It was perfect. No regrets.

After seeing what I need to accomplish, I got started on Thursday’s homework. While reading, I sipped on coffee with Coffee Mate’s Natural Bliss Vanilla creamer for 1 point.

I really liked the taste of the vanilla flavor.

After working on homework for quite a while, I hopped on the treadmill to complete my 5th workout this week (5 workouts and 2 rest days is my goal)! Yay! I also always aim for 3 runs a week, and this was my third run! Another week conquered in the workout department. Open-mouthed smile I did my usual workout, 1.5 miles total—.5 warm up and cool down and 1 mile run straight. I ran my mile in 10:45!! That’s my fastest mile since I started this speed work (by 3 seconds). I finished the workout in 20:45 and burned 396 calories.

After my workout, I made a green smoothie with light vanilla yogurt, 1 cup spinach, 1 orange, 1 Tbs. milled flax seed, and 1 packet of Vi-Shape protein powder for 4 points.

I also ate egg beaters with a slice of Canadian bacon and a wedge of Laughing Cow cheese for 2 points.

On my way to class, I ate baby carrots for 0 points.

Today was one of my hungry days. I kept it under control though. So hopefully that means I’ll have a loss on the scale tomorrow!

Before my second class, I ate dry roasted peanuts for 2 points.

We watched films in two of my classes, so it was a pretty easy going day.

I stopped at the store to pick up a new skirt on my way home. I bought a size 15/16!! I’ve been wearing 18’s. So that was pretty awesome. Let’s remember that I started out wearing 24/26!

On my way home, I ate a WW cheese stick for 2 points.

For supper, I made Tilapia, which I topped with a little wheat bran and spices, along with perfect roasted potatoes and steamed broccoli for 7 points.

I finished it up with Cook n Serve vanilla pudding for 2 points, which is lumpy because I burned it. Whoops!

111511 011

That leaves me with 4 points left for the day. A good day! Open-mouthed smile

I am crossing my fingers, toes and eyes for my weigh in tomorrow! This morning I was SO close to Onederland, but I don’t want to get my hopes too high. I’ll be happy with any loss at all!

Today’s review and giveaway are for Grandma Dee’s Granola—FABULOUS stuff! Check it out!
