Finally Friday!

Next time I decide to drink about a pot of coffee and work out after 8 PM, please remind me not too! I was up at all hours of the night last night because I couldn’t sleep! I’m actually not all that tired this morning…but I know I need my sleep!

For breakfast, I had an egg sandwich with egg beaters, FF cheese, and FF turkey on a sandwich thin, along with strawberries/blueberries and skim milk.

Mmmm! Breakfast never tasted so good! I was hungry this morning.

While working, I sipped on coffee with Almond Joy creamer. Not that I needed any more coffee in my body! Confused smile

On my first break, I ate 1 oz. of raw almonds.

And a Weight Watchers Light Smoked string cheese.

It snowed today. It was a good day to be working at home!

For lunch, I finished up the squash soup and also had tuna with light Miracle Whip, black beans, and sliced tomatoes.

And I also had a No Pudge! brownie.

On my last break, I ate 1/2 cup of grapes.

Measuring my fruits and veggies out will take some getting used to again. But I feel better about it. More in control and more knowledgeable about what I’m actually eating.

For supper, I made a shredded beef BBQ salad topped with feta cheese and mushrooms.

I was hungry and ended up eating about double the meat that I had on this salad (6 oz. total), but I’m also under my weekly budget. So that leaves me a little leeway over the weekend if I want to eat a little more, if hungry.

I also ate one Girl Scout’s Peanut Butter Sandwich Cookie.

I’ll probably want a snack later on tonight.

All I can say is that the scale has been showing me some serious love. And I sure hope it continues!!

I also checked my BP a few times today, now that I’ve been on the new BP meds for a few weeks. And it’s FINALLY normal!! I will be keeping a much closer watch on the numbers over the next week to make sure it is consistent, but that makes me feel a lot better. Maybe I finally found a medication that will help.

Here are my stats for the day:

Daily calorie budget
Food calories consumed
Exercise calories burned
Net calories so far today
I am 252 calories over my daily budget

I can handle that. I’m still 657 calories UNDER my weekly budget.

Any plans for the weekend? I just plan on having a relaxing weekend at home!

  1. Hi Alissa. I LOVE your heart/arrow measuring cups!!! SO cute. Yay for the new plan working well so far. Have a great weekend!!! Enjoy the R&R.

  2. Oh! COFFEE! I've done that so many times. I somehow manage to forget that having that late-night cup will keep me up all evening and then make me miserable the next day. Argh!

    Love the food spread, too. Goodness...your blog always makes me hungry and happy. :)

  3. How cute is your measuring cup! Kind of makes measuring out food a little bit more fun! The girl scout cookie looks delish! Hope you are having a fabulous weekend doll! xo

  4. I love the design of your measuring spoon.
