Breakfast: bagel and cream cheese (3 pts) and coffee (o pts) no picture. How many bagel pictures do you really want to see anyway? HA
I had so many chores to do today. First to drop off a "lost" library book which I think I owe $40 on now. Then I had to go to the vet to get more flea medicine because they're terrible this year already. After that I stopped by Lowe's to pick up some treatment for the back yard to kill fleas and ticks. And then off to do some grocery shopping. Found some really great things like naan bread which I used for my sausage sandwich mentioned a couple of posts ago. Got some cheeses and crackers and chocolates.
I just had to try a piece of this most beautiful lavender blueberry chocolate (1 pt) So good.
I had also stopped by Old Navy to just look around. Found a pair of capris and had a nonscale victory: shopping off the rack in Old Navy. I haven't been able to wear anything there in years. It felt good to shop and be able to wear some cute stuff. I do have to return a couple of tops because they just don't fit across the chest. But check out these cutest of cute shoes!!
Lunch: Morningstar Italian sausage with grilled peppers and sweet onion in a naan wrap (7 pts) You can see the pic a couple of posts down. This was awesome!
The rain came in this evening with a vengeance. It was pretty bad. I felt terrible for the folks stuck out in rush hour traffic during all of that.
Dinner: tuna croquettes, mac and cheese, and salad (7 pts) These remind me so much of the ones my mom used to make. They were so good. Chuck gave it 5 out of 5 stars. Tuna Croquettes (4 for 3 pts)
1 6-oz can albacore tuna in water, drained
3/4 cup Fiber One original cereal
1/2 cup Eggbeaters
2 green onions
2 tsp dijonnaise
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp salt
additional salt, pepper, onion powder and any other seasonings you like
Place fiber One in blender along with any seasonings you like such as black pepper, onion powder, salt, etc. Grind to breadcrumb consistency. Place half of crumbs in dish and other half in mixing bowl.
Shred tuna and add to crumbs in mixing bowl along with other ingredients. Stir until mixed.
Line baking sheet with wax paper and form tuna into 8 mounds on paper. Let it sit at room temp for 15 minutes.
Coat the mounds in the dish of Fiber One crumbs and cook in skillet heated over medium heat and coated with olive oil spray. Cook for about 3 minutes and flip. I cooked mine on a griddle so I could do them all at once.

Dessert 1: double scoop ice cream cone with mint chocolate chip and chocolate chocolate chip (2 pts) Did you know that a small flat bottom ice cream cone is 0 points?! That's right. And my ice cream was 1 pt for 1/4 cup so I just made my scoops small. Dessert 2: small piece of chocolate with crystallized ginger (1 pt) This is made by the same people who make the cherry almond chocolate that I'm giving away. It's organic and you can read (and understand) all of the ingredients. Plus it comes with a lovely love poem inside the wrapper. Love, chocolate, organic.....what's not to love?! I am so bad. I just had evil cravings for sweets. It's ok to crave....not so ok to cave in. I stayed on plan but what plan wants you eating this many sweets? LOL Sure was good though. I'll be better tomorrow, I promise.
Dessert 3: Holey Donut strawberry frosted (3 pts)
If you haven't heard, I've got a SWEET giveaway going on. Check the post below for more details. It involves lots of chocolate.
Activity: day off (though I did get quite a few steps in...don't think shopping counts as exercise though, does it?)
