What a Pain in the Butt!

Finally Friday!!

For breakfast this morning, I had an egg, 2 slices of Canadian Bacon, 1/2 cup oatmeal with cinnamon, a banana and a glass of milk for 8 points.

I’m starting to like this protein for breakfast thing. I think I feel better throughout the day when I eat more protein for breakfast. It definitely takes more effort, but hubby and I are both enjoying the new breakfasts. I just need some more ideas!

I think my scale is memorizing my weight. I’ve been noticing that it will stay the same for DAYS! Hubby doesn’t weigh as frequently as me. So today, I weighed exactly the same as yesterday, so I asked hubby to step on and weigh. And then I stepped on and weighed again and sure enough, a different number. That’s a little ridiculous! I’ll have to have hubby weigh in before me on weigh in days or something!

I sipped on coffee with the last of the SF Peppermint Mocha creamer. I am going to missed that processed food! 1 point.

I skipped a snack at break because my breakfast kept me full today.

For lunch, I made a salad with lettuce, chicken, tomatoes, alfalfa sprouts, a hard boiled egg, topped with a little light ranch and BBQ sauce for 8 points.

I was so filled by this salad that I didn’t even want anything sweet for dessert. Shocking! I know! I used a lot more chicken than I normally do, maybe that’s the secret! More protein!

Hubby joined me for lunch since he had to do some work in the area! Yay!

That was a nice surprise!

On my last break, I ate an apple with PB for 3 points.

I got off of work a little early today—awesome for a Friday!!

For supper, I made Boca Burgers on sandwich thins with Swiss cheese, light miracle whip, ketchup, lettuce and tomato along with perfect roasted potatoes for a total of 13 points of deliciousness.

For dessert, I had a Fiber One brownie for 2 points.

I used 3 weekly points today. Today was a good food day for me. Supper was another attempt to eat up some of those processed foods in the house. This is helping us clean out the freezer for sure!

I had my workout clothes all laid out last night for a run this morning and wouldn’t you know, I woke up this morning with severe butt pain. lol That yoga really killed me yesterday!! So I thought I would workout tonight but I am STILL hurting. It hurts to sit, it especially hurts to move my legs. So I guess today will be my 2nd and last rest day of the week. I will definitely get my 5 days in though! What a pain in the butt! Winking smile

I am SO looking forward to relaxing tonight and the weekend! I am trying to finish all of my homework for next week so that I can focus on projects next week. I have about 130 pages to read and I’ll be done!

Happy Veteran’s day! I always forget it’s a holiday until I go out to get the mail and there’s nothing there. Doh! But I want to offer a sincere Thank You to all of the Veteran’s out there. You are true heroes.

Have a fantastic weekend!!

  4. Protein is the answer ...there are times I just struggle with scrambled eggs, tomato, mushrooms and spring onions for breakfast...boiled I cope with better as well...and lovely in a salad.
    I read all your blog posts but since I upset u once ( all is forgiven I know ) I struggle and never want to make you feel like that again...
    There are times I read and my heart breaks for you, as I too have been there and know the much work goes into this journey and then the results are not what we want..
    All I can say is ...its worth the are worth the fight....

  6. Good eats today! I love a big breakfast and one I like a lot is kind of a breakfast stir fry.

    I'll have 3/4 cup cooked brown rice or quinoa, whatever veggies I want, maybe a turkey sausage link cut up in there and a fried egg (egg "fried" in cooking spray). It's like a breakfast fried rice. Since I put a ton of veggies in it, it's SUPER filling and wonderful. Sometimes I'll put a little stir fry sauce in it, and sometimes I'll sprinkle breakfast sausage seasoning (you can get that from Penzey's spices).

  7. Hi Alissa, hopey ou're having a good weekend. I still covet the fish sandwich thins. So fun.

  8. ooo look I did it!!! haha I guess all I needed to do is sign out of my own account....duh!!!
