Today was one of those days I could have slept until noon. Which for me, hardly ever happens. I think it was the weather. Another gray, foggy and cold day in Iowa. I did get to sleep in a couple of hours though. Today was my day off but I offered to work for one of my friends today who works a later shift.
My plan was to workout in the morning but I was just dragging. I’ve been hoping that the snow would all melt and we’d go back to the unusual 60 degree days we had a couple of weeks ago! No such luck. And wouldn’t you know I didn’t feel like working out in the evening either… I really need to make it a priority to work out first thing in the morning.
I wanted to eat a good, filling breakfast this morning since my lunch would be much later. I made myself an omelet with 2 eggs, 3 egg whites, FF cheese, turkey sausage crumbles, tomato and onion along with a banana and a glass of skim milk for 7 points.
It was delicious! I love breakfast. I could eat breakfast foods for breakfast, lunch and supper!
While working, I sipped on a new coffee I picked up at Trader Joe’s with FF creamer for 1 point.
I was impressed with this coffee—delicious!
So last night I ended up using 17 weekly points. How? You ask. Well, supper was healthy and within my points. But then FIL called and said he was craving a Pepsi. So we stopped at the gas station to pick that up for him and these delicious chocolate donuts enticed us. And I ate two. And I NEVER eat donuts. No matter how good they were…they were NOT worth the 20 points that I calculated off of the nutrition information AFTER I ate them! WOW, a 10 point donut. I really need to get back to the basics and check points BEFORE eating something. But I tracked it. Told myself the rest of my day was very good, and I am moving on.
On my first break, I ate a wrap on a high fiber tortilla with FF cheese and turkey along with a clementine for 4 points.
For lunch, I had the same salad as yesterday for 7 points.
I was really craving something sweet, but didn’t know what to have. I decided on a serving of Lucky Charms for 3 points.
I stopped eating the more “sugary” cereals for breakfast a LONG time ago. But I do enjoy them as a snack (or dessert in this case!) once in a while!
I was WAY excited when the Fed Ex man arrived and delivered my new Kitchen Aid blender than My Blog Spark sent me!!! What a nice surprise!!
On my last break, I really had to practice the self control because I was super hungry. I ate an apple for 0 points.
Today was a VERY slow day at work. It was kind of nice for a change! As always, I was happy to be done!
For supper, I made a beef stir fry over lentils for 7 points.
And I finished it up with a piece of Coconut Mixed Berry Crumble with 1/2 serving of vanilla ice cream for 8 points. I was going to eat a much smaller serving but ended up eating a regular sized portion so it cost me more points. But this recipe is basically just fruit and then the crumble on top. So really not the worst thing I could eat.
I made half of the recipe and it’s SO good!
And hubby brought home some strawberry crème heart Peeps—so I had one of those for 1 point. Tasty!
I used 4 weekly points today. I had some struggles today with wanting to raid the cupboards, so overall, I think I did really well by tracking what I was eating and NOT raiding the cupboards.
Who’s excited that tomorrow is Friday? I am!!
