Chuck is so good to cook breakfast on the weekends. I'm still experimenting with my bagel fetish so my usual English muffin sandwich was turned into a bagel sandwich. OMG, so good!
Breakfast: CarbCheck bagel with egg white, cheese, and bacon (5 pts) and coffee with creamer (1 pt)
We all got ready and headed out to Brenham to see the bluebonnets.
I can't get that freakin McDonald's song out of my head! Have you seen the commercial?
Soooooo.....we stop by McD's for some lunch. Yep, I got the Filet-O-Fish (mustard instead of tartar sauce...to save points), small fry and Diet Coke (11 pts).
Gimme back that filet o fish; give me that fish.
Then off to take some pictures. Chuck took so many terrific shots. I wish I could post them all but it would use up so much memory. Here are a few:
We had to rush home to make it to the in laws in time for dinner. Chuck's grandpa and aunt were there too. It was good to see them. His aunt is now my favorite aunt after tonight: she kept telling me how much weight I had lost and saying that my clothes were too big for me. Oh, she knew all the right things to say.
Chuck's mom even mentioned it! Wow! They asked what my secret was and I just said that I was eating healthier food and moving more. I'm not ready to mention Weight Watchers yet. I don't know why.
Here is a picture of the dinner spread. It would have been too hard for me to explain if I took a picture of my plate. This was easier. :) So I had some grilled chicken, corn, green beans, 1 Tbs mac and cheese (yeah, I know), and a big portion of salad with spray dressing. You don't see a picture of the dessert spread. There were two types of cakes and brownies. I had 1 brownie and a bite of both cakes. One bite each! I estimated my total dinner at 13 points.
I had to use 6 of my weekly allowance points but I am ok with that. I was able to eat dinner without making it a huge ordeal. Success!
We had such a good time just driving around looking at the landscape today. I think we're going to go and do the same tomorrow. Wish me luck if we stop by Blue Bell. I can get a HUGE bowl of any flavor for $1. Yeah, it's Brenham: the birthplace of Blue Bell Creamery.
