Thanks for everyones concern and advice for my low blood sugar swings. You will be happy to know that I have an appointment with my endocronologist in November. I skipped my quarterly July appointment when we didn’t have insurance. 🙁 Meanwhile, I will keep on doing what I can to manage it until then. 😀 Luckily diabetes is a manageable disease!
Pork. It’s what’s for breakfast. I am not sure this picture will convey how good this breakfast sammie was – I had leftover sliced pork and made an egg white sammie out of it – when I added Tabasco to my sammie it was like having a pulled pork sammie – so good! Breakfast comes in at 8 points.
I had an errand to run at lunch with Tony, so no work out for me yesterday. It was a busy day at work anyway – I ate lunch at my desk – 2 beef tacos with sliced cucumbers – I made a dip of 1 tablespoon light ranch with 1 tablespoon taco sauce and hot sauce to dip my cucumbers in – so good. Pretty sure I could have Mexican food every day and never get sick of it. Lunch comes in at 9 points.
It was a rainy day in Chicagoland yesterday, but driving home the sky was beautiful.
I left work a little late, so I called Tony to let him know. He asked what was for dinner and I suddenly realized I never defrosted anything and had no clue what I even had on the menu – so not like me! So we went with Plan B.
They have a special – 3 topping 8 inch individual pizza for $5 bucks – how can you go wrong with that? My pizza? Italian beef, hot peppers and pepperoni – I ate half my pizza and am calling dinner 14 points.
I really need to make a light box – it’s almost dark by the time we eat dinner. 🙁
Here is a picture of our “down town.” I grew up in Oak Park and worked in Chicago for years. When we first moved out here it took a while to adjust to no sidewalks, street lights, and traffic. Our “down town” is only two blocks long!
While I still love going downtown to Chicago, I like our little country life. How about you – are you a city mouse or a country mouse?
So excited for lunch today!! I am meeting a long time blogger friend Robin of Big Red Kitchen for lunch at Carlucci’s. She’s one of the most creative cooks I know – I am loving all her ideas on mason jar meals – how cool is this? This is my first out of town blogger meet up – Shelley and Helen, I promise someday you’ll be next!
Stats for Thursday:
- 31 points

Happy Friday! Make it a great day!
