I knew that the temps were going to be decent yesterday, so I decided to forego my morning workout and sleep in a bit.  With the thunderstorms and rain, it washed away most of the snow on our drive – love it because I hate how icky days old snow looks, just dirty.

Last time I was at the grocery store I found these buffalo chicken sausages on the sale rack – not sure what they normally sell for, but my package was only $1.99.

Hello spicy!  And the stats?  3 WW points each!

I ended up making a buffalo chicken sausage hash with the sausage, 3 oz. potato, 1/2 cup egg whites and baby spinach.  Who doesn’t like to start out the day with a spicy mouth?! šŸ˜€  Breakfast comes in at 7 points.

The reason I need to be a morning exerciser is because while it was 45 degrees when I left the house, by the time lunch had rolled around, it had dropped almost 20 degrees and was snowing/raining sideways.  So no lunch workout for me. šŸ™

Lunch was leftover beef and bean salsa soup that I had frozen – 8 WW points.

So since I didn’t work out I made doctor appointments – three of Tony’s doctors wanted to follow up with him within a week of getting out of the hospital.  Two of them only have office hours near our house one day a week, so I did those first.  One nurse said “the earliest I can get you in is January 31st.”  I said “wow, you don’t have anything open before then?”

I looked at my calendar and realized January 31st is a week from today!  I can’t believe how fast this month has gone by already!

Tony picked up all his prescriptions yesterday, he’ll be taking two oral antibiotics the next week.  He’s still super tired, and he was a bit sore from walking after being sedentary for a week.  He’s catching up on sleep too! šŸ˜€

I still haven’t gone to the grocery store, so I told Tony “I have stuff to make burgers, pasta, chicken. . .”  He stopped me at burgers, but then I had no hamburger buns, only bread, so he had a patty melt.

I decided to have an Italian burger over zucchini.  I sauteed some zucchini in 1 tsp. olive oil (1), then cooked a 4 ounce 93% lean burger (4), topped it with 3/4 ounce slice of provolone cheese (2) and put some of my pasta sauce overtop (2) – a delicious 9 WW point dinner.

When I was downloading my pictures I realized something.  The chili I had eaten about 5 times at the hospital?  It was 9 points a serving based on their nutrition label.  What I didn’t realize was that the serving size was 8 ounces.

Um, guess what the soup cups were next to the soups and chili?

16 ounces!!  So what I thought was an 11 points cup of chili with the cheese and sour cream was more likely 20 points.  Isn’t that crazy?!  When I entered “16 ounces chili with beans” into WW eTools, I got a range between 14 points and 29 points, so I think 20 points seems right in the middle. šŸ™

I am off to do my morning abs on Exercise TV, while Hannah is making us breakfast pizza.  Make it a great day!
