Breakfast: the ever exciting oatmeal (2 pts).
Doing mountains of laundry today. Doesn't that sound fun? Plus cleaning up the place. I would be embarrassed to have a maid see it. I hate cleaning house.
Lunch break: leftover spaghetti (5 pts) and some grapes (1 pt).
I still wanted that snack though so I reached for a tried and true bag of 100 calorie Chips Ahoy cookies. (2 pts) Always good.
After more laundry duty, I heard Jillian calling. I have been avoiding her lately. But I answered the call of the few, the brave and the shredded.
For some reason my 8 year old son just can't stand it when I exercise. He always needs something. All I ask is 20 minutes of mommy time. Today was no different. The boy wanted an apple right during cardio part 2 and started crying when he couldn't cut his apple. I freaked. I'm not proud of it but I freaked out.
I told him that there is no crying over fruit in this house! You eat the thing like everyone else does. And why oh why can't I have just 20 minutes to exercise?
I put on my running shoes and headed out the door. Chuck was mowing grass and realized quickly that I needed a little alone time.
I walked for quite a while and jogged off and on. It was good and by the time I got home it was getting dark. Time to cook dinner.
My little guy told me he was sorry. I think his dad had something to do with the apology. :) We hugged and made up. We'll see how the next exercise session goes.
I had bought these precooked grilled chicken at the store to try. Rachel had one for lunch and it was great. And only 2 points per breast! They're already pre-trimmed so there's no fat to cut off. I'm going to buy some more.I made an Asian Chicken Salad (4 pts) with the chicken. I'll include the recipe at the end of the post. It's great!
For a snack I tried these Jalapeno Cheese crackers (2 pts) in the shape of Texas. These are seriously some of the best crackers I've had. And just like their name implies, these crackers are crack for me! LOVE THEM!
Gotta have dessert, people! So it was a skinny cow Caramel Cone (3 pts).
Later, before bed I popped some popcorn (1 pt).
I heard it was Purim tonight. So in honor of the holiday I had a beer (1 pt). I have to do my part to celebrate. :)
