Breakfast: Oatmeal, Jay Robb Pina Colada protein (1/2 packet) and WW strawberry banana yogurt (4 pts) Sweetie Pie has talked about this protein powder before but I had never seen it until a grocery trip a few days ago. I like the fact that it's sweetened with stevia instead of some of the other chemical concoctions that are available. I get enough of those in my Diet Cokes, thank you very much. :) Very good and filling breakfast.
Most of my day was spent trying to study. I'll be so glad when this is finished and life can get back to "normal."
Lunch: baked tater with mesquite smoked turkey, cheese and FF sour cream and a salad with fat free feta cheese(7 pts) Boar's Head deli turkey is only 1 point for 2 ounces. You can find all of the nutritional info for their foods on their web site.
I love sweets so much as you can probably already tell. You don't get to be a big girl like me without enjoying your food. ;-)
Mid-day snack: pineapple angel food cake (2 pts) Very yummy and pretty low in points. I want to try it with some FF Cool Whip next time as an icing. Pineapple Angel Food Cake
1 angel food cake mix (make sure it's the kind with only 1 packet in the box..it makes a difference)
1 20-oz can crushed pineapple, undrained
Mix ingredients. It will get kind of puffy. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Pour batter in pan and bake for 25 minutes or until golden.
16 servings is 2 pts each or 124.7 calories
12 servings is 3 pts each or 166.3 calories
Dinner: taco chicken wrapped in corn tortillas with FF pepper jack cheese, sour cream and Shreds (shredded lettuce); Kroger brand Spanish "rice-a-roni"; FF refried beans (7 pts) For taco chicken recipe just look on the right side of my blog and scroll down to "recipes" It's pretty easy: just 1# chicken, 1 cup chicken broth and 1 packet taco seasoning; throw in crockpot and cook and shred.
I am so losing my mind. We're eating dinner and talking about the week and suddenly I remember that I forgot about my Weight Watcher meeting! I've never done that before. This is either a good thing and means that I am not obsessing about the scale anymore or a bad thing and I am becoming senile at an early age. I'm choosing the good news. And it's not like I was worried about the weigh in or anything. I was just so concerned about studying that I forgot. Huh.
After dinner yum: piece of ginger chocolate (1 pt)
Time for my walk. Today I was going to do 1 hour walk. I got my mp3 player (sure wish I had one of those cool sleeve things that holds them) and took off. Now, some lessons that I learned today:
vampire batsgiant mosquitoes make good motivators to move quickly
- a very small hole in a sock can make a very large blister on the foot
- the Twilight soundtrack has some great music to walk by
- snakes come out after a flood
And so, another day is done training for my Walk-It Challenge. That'll do pig. That'll do.
After walk snack: Sobe zero calorie lifewater and watermelon (1 pt) Just so you know, the Sobe 0 calorie water is made with Stevia. Good stuff.
I might have one of my 3 Musketeers 100 calorie bars (2 pts) so I'm going to go ahead and count it.
Activity: walked a 6k +5 activity points
