Even though I don’t do a full grocery shop the week of a holiday, I can always count on a simple parfait for breakfast. This one comes in at 5 points – 3 points for the cup of plain Chobani, the fruit is free, and the granola is 2 points. I’ve been trying for over a year to come up with a low point granola that doesn’t taste like ass, but haven’t hit pay dirt yet. Believe me, you’ll be the first to know!
I was super busy at work yesterday – a lot of secretaries are still out for the holiday week, so I was assigned another attorney, so that kept me hopping. I wasn’t sure I’d be able to get away to walk, but it worked out. It was warm outside, so my sister and I walked Macy’s. When I got back I put together this quick lunch – not pictured is 4 points of veggie straws. I love, love, these Joseph’s brand pita breads – low carb and only 1 point each.
Look at who much stuff you can put in there?! I did 3 ounces of turkey breast (2), 1/2 once of cheese (2), the pita (1) and with the veggie straws, lunch came in at 9 points.
As luck would have it, I didn’t have to work as night secretary last night, so I made it home by 6:45. The benefit of having an hour train ride home is that you can be productive for 30 minutes, and then take a 30 minute nap, which is what I did. I was refreshed to hit Day 3 of Insanity – Cardio Power & Resistance. Um, I forgot how many push-ups were in that one! Even with the air conditioning on in the house, I worked up a sweat.
I had some fresh tomatoes to use up and last weekend made another batch of my zero point marinara sauce. I added 3 ounces of ground sirloin and chopped zucchini to make this 10 point pasta dish. This hit the spot!
When my sister and I were walking Macy’s – this outfit stopped me in my tracks. First, I don’t think I’ve ever worn white pants in my life. And second . . .I love the blue top that went with the pants. This is a size small, but I’ve declared this my goal outfit.
Which brings me to . . .GOALS. I know we are already nearly a full week into July, but I have some goals:
- drink 96 ounces of water a day – even in summer I still struggle with the water intake
- take a paddle board class – just found out that the town next to mine has an hour paddle board class for only $35 on the weekends ($30 on the week days). I’ve always wanted to try it, who know, I may love it!
- continue with Insanity, even on vacation – I know I can find an hour to myself, even if that means getting up early to get it done, while on vacation
I may add to this as the month goes on, or leave it as is. We shall see! I am on my way to WI this morning. This will be my last WI until I get back from vacation – my Aunt lives in a small town and the nearest WW meeting is 30 miles away. Again, no idea how I did this week, but I feel smaller and “tighter” if that’s even a word to use. While I puffy heart walking, I know Insanity is going to help reshape my body that walking will never do.
Happy Thursday! Make it a great day!
