It’s time to face the music people! Those extra handfuls of Chex Mix, nachos and pizza, not to mention the wine have caught up with me! I can’t help but think if I had just done 45 minutes of exercise each day, I could have offset some of the extra things I ate! While I am disappointed in myself, there is no looking back, only forward! 😀
Yesterday I didn’t get up until 10:30, so Tony made me a late breakfast:
Joe came over to watch football and Tony made the best pasta sauce! While I wasn’t hungry when the boys ate lunch, about 2:30 I was really hungry, so I tried a new pasta I found at the store – only $1 a box!
I was confused though, because the serving size said 2 ounces (which was 1/7 of the box) , so I weighed out 2 ounces. However, in the cooking directions, it said for once serving use 1/4 of the box? I stuck with the 2 ounces dry, and it really didn’t seem like that much after I cooked it! Maybe two ounces cooked? Either way – the 2 ounce dry was only 170 calories and 6 grams of fiber! 😀
I had tons of leftover turkey breast, and when I googled “leftover turkey” I came up with a Hot Brown Sandwich. Have you ever heard of that? It’s basically an open face turkey sandwich with cheese sauce and bacon. Below is my version. I used reduced fat cheddar cheese and skim milk for my sauce – I may have had about 1/2 cup between my sammie and broccoli. Yes, everything tastes better with cheese! 😀
Then made my plate – 2 ounces of bread, 2 ounces turkey, 1 cup broccoli, 1/2 cup cheese and two slices of center cut bacon:
So I’ve decided that I am going to take it one day at a time. Goals for today?
- 45 minutes of exercise
- 80 ounces of water
- no wine with dinner! (that doesn’t mean I can’t have wine before bed though – kidding!) 😀
Thanks for everyone’s comments on my last post – with your continued support I know I can do this! Happy Monday! 😀
