A Good Day

Yesterday was a good day in my book. Yay!

Last night, hubby and I went to a choir event last night. It was a woman’s choir. I LOOOOVE singing and I really miss singing in choir like I did in high school. After the concert, they asked if any women would like to experience what it would be like to sing with them. So I did it. It was fun! They took my info and want me to join them, but I got to thinking about it and decided as much as I want to, I just can’t. I’m stretching myself thin, time wise, as it is right now. Maybe someday, but I can’t commit to 3.5 hours practice every week. This week has been about rejuvenation for me because if I feel as overwhelmed as I have in the past couple of weeks, I’m not going to stay sane very long!

For breakfast, I ate a lemon poppy seed muffin, egg beaters, strawberries/blueberries, and skim milk.


While working job #1, I sipped on an Almond Joy iced latte with skim.


On my first break, I ate a banana.


And 1/2 serving of pistachios.


I got off of work 1 hour and 45 minutes early!! nice! That helped my schedule out big time!

I was able to get some work done for Job #2 before lunch.

For lunch, I ate a salad with lettuce, tomato, blue cheese, chicken, and BBQ sauce.

I was still hungry, so I ate an apple with peanut butter.

And while I still had more work to be done, I had to tell myself that it could very easily be done other days of the week and that I had accomplished enough for the day. Time to relax! Getting off work early meant I had time to go to the pool—just to lounge! Something I haven’t been able to do in weeks.


Thanks to my pool pass, I can just spend an hour there and not feel out any money.

I walked to and from the pool, 20 minutes, and then swam for 10 minutes straight. There’s my 30 minute workout!

After that, I went to a local shop and bought a gift for my friend’s birthday.

I was so hungry at this point but wanted to keep my points down. I decided to get supper in the oven and workout to get my mind off of food.

I biked 6.7 miles in 30 minutes. Got in an episode of Ugly Betty. I’ve been slowly making my way through those episodes for a couple of years. I love that show and I’m sad that I only have 3 more episodes left!

For supper, I made fish tacos along with chips and salsa.

So flavorful and delicious.

I finished it up with FF/SF chocolate pudding.

And then I had a couple of these.

Good day for exercise, but I did go over my points, just a little!

Hubby and I plan on going up to the pool again for some more swimming tonight! We have our last swimming lesson this week. Hubby will sign up for more, but I think I’ve learned what I need to learn. Maybe personal training or a class for me…We’ll see!


  1. Yay for a good day :) And I love the attitude about going over points. It happens. It's not the end of the world. :)

  2. Oh man that pudding makes me remember when I used to make pudding ALL the time! That was my dessert pretty much every single day, with the Zero fat whipped cream... I should get goin with that again

  3. Good for you getting 2 workouts in in one day! I wish we had a pool around where I live... It would be great.
    I started Gilmore Girls while on the treadmill. I loved that show when I was in high school and I still like it :)

  10. which kind of sucks, but for $25, can deal. So tried to rig up own creation to hold a magazine on. Didn’t work the greatest, but it sort of worked.

  11. It saves you so much time and energy when you're swimming that will let you rock out a few more laps when you're exercising!
