Before I say anything else, I need to give a shout out to my blog friend Renee – I won her giveaway and she sent me some tea (sweet and spicy!) and a magnet pad and a cute card. Um, check out her one point quiches! Thanks Renee!
I have a confession to make. I have no meal plan this week. I know! When I went to the grocery store over the weekend, I only bought snacky stuff and fruit for Superbowl Sunday, which we never ended up eating. Well, I ate chips and guacamole. 😀
So this week I give you “fly by the seat of my pants menu week!” I really have no idea what I am going to fix until the night before – scary!
I found I had some Arnold Thins in the freezer, so I had an egg white/red pepper/spinach sammie with kiwi, strawberries and grapes. 7 WW points.
So it came time to make a decision at lunch. I went on weather.com:
It’s tiny, but it said: actual temperature 31, but with windchill feels like 21. That’s chilly peeps. But I told myself I was prepared. I had my warm leggings under my sweat pants, I had a long sleeve shirt, sweat shirt and wind proof jacket, a hat and scarf. I ended up doing my walk a song/run a song for 40 minutes.
Not gonna lie, the first 5 minutes sucked ass because it was fricken cold, but like my boyfriend Dolvett says “hard work = dedication!” And I was glad that I did it. 😀
For some reason when I packed my breakfast I must have gotten distracted (happens to me all the time!) and I never put anything together for lunch. I have my blog friend Melissa for posting that Subway has buffalo sauce – whaa??!!
I had the turkey sandwich (7) with a side of the Light Lay’s Potato chips, so lunch comes in at a nice and spicy 9 points.
Hannah was home for dinner. As I was driving home I was thinking of what I had on hand that she and I would both love. Shocker – I went with Taco Salad! 😀
- romaine lettuce (0)
- baby spinach (0)
- red pepper (0)
- cucumber (0)
- carrots (0)
- 1/8 cup canned black beans (1)
- 1/8 cup canned corn (1)
- 4 ounces cooked ground sirloin (6)
- 1/2 ounce cheddar cheese (1)
- 1 tablespoon guacamole (1)
- 2 tablespoons Ortega hot sauce (0)
- 2 tablespoons fat free ranch dressing (0)
I love mixing taco sauce and ranch dressing together for my taco salad dressing – 4 tablespoons of dressing is only 1 WW point. 😀
This literally took me about 20 minutes to eat – so good and spicy! I forgot I wanted to add fresh sliced jalapneo though. 🙁
So my next diabetes doctor appointment is on May 15. While he is a crazy ass and still wants me to get down to 125 pounds (um, that’s 34 more pounds people!) I have a goal of 140. Which is 19 pounds. 19 is my favorite number! So in order to lose 19 pounds in 3 months, guess what? That works out to – only 1.4 pounds a week! Totally doable. So that’s my only goal I have for the next 3 months.
Hard work + dedication = 140 pounds. And a size 8 jeans. 😀
Off to figure out my food for the day – wish me luck! Make it a great day! 😀
