When I menu planned last week, I kinda skipped over what I was making for breakfast, so I relied on the cafe in our building.  This sandwich was half of what they gave me, I ended up eating 1 1/2 with this bowl of fruit – I guestimated 11 points?

it's like a breakfast panini 😀

Wednesday is my rest day, so no workout.  I ended up eating leftover beef stew, but was full and never ate the crackers – lunch is 8 points.

When I was making the menu last week, I put sliders on the menu and Hannah asked if I could saute onions to go with them.  I agreed and Tony and I actually placed an onion in our grocery cart and purchased it. (ew!)  When Hannah was sick on Monday, she said “I better not be sick on Wednesday because I want those sliders!

Yesterday afternoon I checked my phone and Hannah texted me: “Can’t wait for those sliders!  My mouth has been watering all day!”

I sauteed the onions on the front half, then cooked the burgers there - um, notice my back burger is in the onion free zone!

Hannah could not have been happier – not only for the burger but for my fried potatoes on the side, which are her favorite.  My dinner comes in at 13 points.

And then I did something I said I wasn’t going to do this week – I had wine.  It’s been such an emotional roller coaster both at work and home.  Tony and I stayed up late and talked – while I can try to understand what he is going through, I never truly will.   He had just gotten out of the doctors office to get the tattoo on his tumor, and I called him at the exact moment he got out  to talk about a household matter.   It was bad timing on my part, and I couldn’t understand why he was so upset.

But we talked it out last night – that is one of Tony’s greatest assets is his ability to communicate, and it’s helped our relationship get stronger over the years.  And I had a good cry which I think helped release some of the anxiety I’ve been holding onto.   I am still positive that everything is going to go well with his surgery next week though! 😀

Do you cry very often, and if you do, do you think it makes you feel better?

Stats for Wednesday:

  • 39 points (including 7 points for wine)
  • 34 flex points left, 23 activity points earned
  • average blood sugar 103

Have a great day!
