I love bagel Wednesday.   I have Lori to thank for that – I love bagels, but they are quite point heavy – but having one a week works in my plan. ๐Ÿ˜€  Life is too short not to have bagels!

Mine was an everything bagel with an egg and 1/2 ounce of cheese – breakfast comes in at 11 points.

If the weather could be like it was yesterday all year round, I wouldn’t complain about living in Chicagoland at all.  When I left for my run at 12:30 it was partly sunny and 72 degrees.

I did another 5k, and I was feeling so good about the temperature that I started out running too fast, so I had to walk a bit, but still finished my 5k in 35:20 – I’ll take it!

Since I love all things spicy, I decided to make southwestern meatballs –  I ended up with 32 big marble sized meatballs – 8 balls in a serving for 4 points.

I got that whole package of serrano peppers for only .98 cents!  Be careful with serrano peppers – they are typically about 5 times hotter than jalapenos!


I had my balls with 1 1/4 cups whole wheat pasta and some marinara sauce – lunch comes in at 11 points.

I’ve been lost without my dinner meal plan this week.  The freezer saved me – I made meat ravioli – I guess yesterday was just a pasta day for me. ๐Ÿ˜€  Surprisingly, dinner also came in at 11 points.

Guess what?  Today is my Friday!  Yep, I am going on vacation tomorrow!  My Mom and I are headed to Virginia for a family reunion and then to my Aunt’s Lake house in Smith Mountain Lake (Roanoke).   And I haven’t even packed yet – I am the ultimate procrastinator. ๐Ÿ˜€

Stats for Wednesday:

  • 45 minute walk/run, included a 35 minute 5k
  • 33 points
  • average blood sugar 99
