We made it through Monday – whew! It was fun reading all the comments about the creamed spinach – I think it was 25% delicious and 75% baby barf 😀
The winner of the Weight Watchers journal is . . . Emily “I love creamed spinach, haven’t had it in ages though. That is a beautiful picture of you and your mom!”
Congrats Emily – send me your mailing address to email@example.com 😀
There is no way that I could make breakfast look good, but believe me, it was tasty! Three ounces of leftover beef roast, a hard boiled egg with guacamole and cantaloupe.
We had temps near 70 so there was no way I wasn’t going to get my lunch time walk in, but the weather was a bit iffy – it looked and felt like it could storm any minute.
My Aunt sent me this spicy pineapple fruit ketchup for my birthday. OMG, this is so good. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how I was going to use it, but this worked perfect with my lunch. I used a tablespoon over my shrimp cocktail and sautéed asparagus and mushrooms. When I was on my walk though, I realized that this plate of food was only going to be 3 smart points, so I picked up a cup of Al’s Beef no bean chili to eat later if this didn’t hold me that well.
While I ate everything on that plate, but by 4:30 I was hungry, so heated up the chili – I have no idea how many points to count it, but I picked 7. I loved the flavor, but not the texture as much, I guess I thought there would be chunks of beef since there were no beans. If I had a container of queso and mixed it with this chili – it would make an amazeball chili dip.
Since our office is moving in a couple weeks, I’ve been bringing stuff that I don’t use that often, and brought home a box of chocolate Cheerios that I used for parfaits. And wouldn’t you know it I ate about a cup and a half of the cereal on the train ride home. And it was a lower carb day! That set me back 8 smart points. It was just mindless eating, and I ended up throwing out the box before I got to my car.
Check out the temperature drop from when I stepped out of my office:
My Aunt also sent me this seasoning at Christmas (can you tell I cleaned out my pantry?!). I bought a package of chicken legs for $1.80 and seasoned the chicken with this chicken seasoning: overnight.
I was trying to figure out a side dish that all of us could eat and decided to make a zucchini gratin. Hannah and Jacob were home and they joined me for dinner – Hannah just made smoked sausage for her protein, but they both gave this side dish two thumbs up 😀
That drop of cheese sauce on the napkin is driving me crazy – I didn’t notice it until I downloaded my pictures. Oh well, I am klassy with a K!
Hannah has been telling me for a couple weeks to buy new pants – my size 14’s were too big, so I hit up my local thrift store and bought 5 pairs of pants for $28. I paid $5 for these Bill Blass jeans – size 12!! I love how they are the perfect length. I have my next diabetes doctor appointment on May 23, and I am going to have them measure me – I may have shrunk and could be 5.1?
It’s been a while since I fit into size 12’s – so exciting!
So it wasn’t a completely low carb day, but I ended up with 31 points for the day. Without the Cheerio episode, I would have only been at 23 points, so I guess it’s all good.
Alright, off to catch up on my blog reading the rest of this train ride – make it a great day!
