When the temperatures are about 30 degrees I almost feel like I don’t need to wear a winter coat.  The sun was shining yesterday morning, and no matter the temperature, I always feel better when the sun is out.  😀

It’s funny, but when you blog just about every day with everything you eat, you sometimes go into waves of eating the same thing over and over, just because you love it.  Like my egg sammies and breakfast pizza.  😀

I had totally forgotten about breakfast nachos!  This huge plate of goodness is only 9 points and kept me full for hours – 2 corn tortillas cut into 8 triangles, baked at 350 for 6-10 minutes depending on your oven – (mine take 10) just until they are crisp – be careful because they can go from done to burnt in 60 seconds.

I divided 1/4 cup refried beans between the chips, topped them with 2/3 cup cooked egg beaters, and 1 ounce of cheese, put in the toaster oven until the cheese is just melted and then topped with salsa and fresh cilantro.

I personally think the cilantro makes these nachos 😀

I was going to go home for lunch to see Tony, but he said he could manage on his own.  I knew Hannah would be back in the early afternoon from school and before she went to work.  I didn’t have my work out bag, so I ended up walking for 30 minutes.  Lunch wasn’t very exciting, but tasty – two turkey tacos with spinach and some skinny nachos on the side.  Lunch comes in at 10 points.

When I got home from work, I decided to take our dog for a walk.  In the winter he doesn’t like to be outside that long – we usually let him out the back door and he wanders our back yard and he let’s himself in.

I loved that it was still light out!  Here is the last of the snow in the front yard – hopefully by the weekend it will be all gone.

Since Eddie is getting older, he really can only go to the river and back – taking it slow its only about a 20 minute walk, but he loves it.  We live across the river from the oldest continuous ski jump club – I think its been around for around 105 years?  You can see it on the left in this picture – and this is probably a good mile across from where I was taking this picture – its huge!  They have one of the largest international ski jump competitions every year too – jumpers from Japan, Netherlands – I’ve even seen kids as young as 7 jump off of it!

And the river isn’t frozen anymore – a sure sign that spring can’t be too far away!

When I got back from the walk, Tony said he was okay with having pasta with just a little bit of butter – his appetite is coming back slowly. My plate was baby spinach, 4 ounces cooked pasta, tomato sauce and some of Christina’s Dad’s sausage – it is so good!  Dinner comes in at 9 points.

The sausage made this dish though! 😀

Stats for the Day:

  • 34 points (including my wine)
  • 40 minute walk
  • average blood sugar 108

Question of the Day:  Do you count fruits and vegetables in WW recipes?  For example – my friend built a recipe: 1 cup cooked pasta (5) 1/2 cup sauce (2) one string cheese (1) and then added 1/2 cup of fresh tomato and 1/2 cup fresh broccoli, and recipe builder said it was 10 points, not 8 like we thought.

And someone from her WW group said fruit is only free if you eat it raw, if you make a dish with a fruit in it, you have to count points for it.  Do you count points for fresh fruit and veggies in recipes?
