For breakfast this morning I had a Thomas Cinnamon Raisin Bagel thin topped with whipped honey nut cream cheese, a cup of strawberries, and 1% milk for 7 points.
I contemplated going back to bed after hubby left, but I wasn’t tired- so I decided to make use of my time. I jumped on the treadmill and walked .25, ran 1.5 miles, and walked .25 for a total of 2 miles in about 30 minutes. I burned 334 calories. That’s a good way to start the day!
Before heading to school, I whipped up my usual green smoothie (2 oranges, 1 cup spinach) for 1 point.
School was awkward and uncomfortable. No one read the book for the class because it was absolutely terrible and incredibly difficult to understand. I read 200 pages and couldn’t tell you what it was about. This happened to be the professor’s favorite book- so he wasn’t happy. And we got partners for our projects, except we really didn’t choose our partners and now I am working with some guy across the room I’ve never spoken to. Let’s just hope he is organized and does his part!
After class, I ate my lunch in the car. I brought a sandwich from home, light bread, ham, and a Laughing Cow Cheese Wedge. I wanted Subway so badly but decided I should eat what I brought. But I was STARVING and feeling headachy and tired, so I ran in a store and got some Sun Chips and a Diet Pepsi to go with my sandwich. This was 8 points.
I also had 2 clementines for 0 points.
And strawberries with light vanilla yogurt for 1 point.
I saw this sign while I was eating my lunch- a good reminder!
I ran into Kohl’s because I had a coupon. I got these two adorable coffee mugs for $1! Nice!
Another good deal of the day, I picked up 3 Papa Murphy’s Large Pepperoni De Lite pizzas for $2, thanks to the gift card that I won! I will freeze two of them, I’ve done it before and they turn out just fine when cooked!
And then it was grocery time, as usual for Tuesdays! I grabbed a Reese’s Peanut Butter Egg for a little sweet treat. I love these things and they are SO worth the points every once in a while. 5 Points.
Ok, but I did feel a little guilty for eating it- that has got to stop! I don’t like attaching emotions to foods. I enjoyed it. I didn’t eat it because I really wanted a hug or anything like that. End of story. Treats are ok sometimes.
I was excited to see my Gevalia order in the mailbox when I got home!
I was wondering why it was so expensive and when I looked at the invoice I about flipped. I bought a box of $26 coffee!??! No way! I didn’t see the pricing when I got the order together and NEVER would have bought it had I known. That’s ridiculous! It must have little flecks of gold in it or something. It’s a Jamaican blend and I’m really not sure what’s so special about it.
WHATTTTT? I’m so disappointed that I didn’t catch that when I ordered it!
So I had to try out the White Tea with peach. It was pretty good!
I also snacked on a banana for 0 points.
I was so hungry all day today. I just couldn’t seem to satisfy the hunger. I mean literally, stomach growling hunger. One of the reasons I stopped and picked up the Sun Chips and Diet Pepsi is because I felt like I was “on a diet.” You know, the unbearable hunger, the weak feeling, the “if I don’t eat something other than a fruit or veggie I am going to eat everything in sight” feelings. So that helped a bit, but I had to keep myself busy all afternoon so I didn’t go in the kitchen and eat!
Hubby was home at a good time again tonight- Yay! I had baked salmon which I marinated in this lovely marinade:
The English major in me was drawn to the Ernest Hemingway brand. And believe me, it was divine- just as good as his books.
I had the salmon, leftover veggies, and 1/2 slice of Cinnamon Raisin bread for 5 points.
I also had a side salad with lettuce, tomato, avocado, carrots and light ranch for 3 points.
For dessert, I had FF/SF Chocolate pudding topped with a bit of Cool Whip for 2 points.
And I still have that hungry feeling- not sure why! But I think it will help that I got a good source of protein in for supper tonight.
I have 1 point left for the day- so right on track!
Tomorrow is WI day!! I’m excited and nervous at the same time. I WOULD LOVE to meet my 80 lbs. goal- but I’m not so sure that will happen. I’ll get there eventually though- you can count on it!
