Day 34


Food. It’s Good. Let’s Talk About It.

Breakfast: This morning I made bacon and eggs for breakfast (6 points) and I totally forgot to take a picture. The breakfast was awesome as always, but I think we might need to find some other healthier breakfast options. Any suggestions? (Also a 1 point orange!)

Lunch: We had leftovers! I use to hate leftovers with a passion so I would instead call up people and go eat out which definitely contributed to my weight gain. Now, I really look forward to them for some reason. So the tacos with sour cream are 4 points but today we just had meat and salsa so they were 3 points a piece so it was 6 points (As you can see on our TV, we were watching The Biggest Loser during lunch. I always feel awkward and almost guilty when I eat and watch BL at the same time. Does anyone else feel that way?) For dessert we had leftover pumpkin pie and it had me smittened. That 4 point slice was amazing.

Exercise: My bud Matt and I played racquetball this afternoon and I dominated the first game… and then lost the rest of the games lol but not by much. It was a blast but I am pooped. Since we played for about 70 minutes, Calorie Count calculated that I burned 1,237 calories. Legit.

Dinner: We were in a bit of a rush so we warmed up last night’s chili but there wasn’t much left so I only had 3 points worth of chili which particularly sucks because it was especially good tonight. (Maybe because I was starving?) No Bueno.

Dessert: So Megan has been looking for a low point cupcake recipe for a Halloween shindig we are having this weekend and out friend Jade suggested the Weight Watchers Chocolate Cupcake Recipe. She made them in a mini muffin pan so they were only 1 point a piece. They were really good and chocolaty so I ended up eating about 6 points worth of them. We brought some to church and the reception was overall pretty good!

So as of 10:00, I have eaten a total of 26 points and I have 19 exercise points. Holy crap. In theory I have as many points available as I have eaten today. Needless to say I’m a little grouchy and hungry, but I’m obviously not going to eat 26 points worth of food at 10:00 at night. This conundrum kind of describes how weird this day has been. Here’s hoping for a better tomorrow. See ya then.

One More Thing! Happy Birthday to my Father-in-Law Mark! Thanks for all of your support of the blog and for raising such an awesome daughter :)

  1. You’re trying to kill me with tiny chocolate cupcakes???? I think my blog name shows my obsession with cupcakes. Though, even better than chocolate is using Spice Cake Mix with a can of pumpkin. Everyone at work LOVES them and they have no idea they are lowfat! Sometimes, I’ll even add a tiny bit of cream cheese icing. Yum! I’m definitely going to have to make some of those soon.
    Some of my breakfast favorites: Wafflewiches(PB & Banana), Jimmy Dean Ready to eat Turkey Sausage Patties chopped and scrambled with egg beaters, I also do chopped up smoked ham in egg beaters and top with a slice of WW American cheese and tomatoes. That’s one of my favorites. Honestly, I hate breakfast and have to force myself to eat it. I also sometimes just have Flavored Greek Yogurt and Granola. I didn’t think I would like it but now I’m obsessed!
