Day 4

Good Monday Y’all!!!

It’s been a beautiful day down here, but I’m ready for some cooler weather! I’m at 85% today and I’m ready to get feeling better. I really want to go jog today but I think I’ll hold off until tomorrow.


I think I have found the breakfast superfood: Kix cereal. It really fills you up and has a ton of fiber and little fat (as it should because it’s just puffed corn right?) One serving size is a 1 1/4 cup and 1/2 a cup of skim milk which is not too bad. I’ve been bad about unintentionally saving my points for later in the day so I had two servings of the kid tested, mother approved goodness.

That is what 5 points of Kix looks like. Legit


Last week, I bought some Hebrew National 97% fat free hot dogs that were on sale and they are awesome! I wish I would have bought like 6 packages of those bad boys because they were like 40% off what they usually were (maybe because they were poison… awe well.) Anyways, I know that hot dog buns are generally pretty bad so I just put the dogs on some Pepperidge Farm Ancient Grain bread, added some mustard and ketchup and it rocked for a quick lighter lunch.

(As you can see I’m no food photographer, but I’m sure it would help if I used my camera and not my phone.)

So here is the break down:

2 Hebrew National 97% Fat Free Hot Dogs: 2 points you can beat a point a hot dog

2 slices of Pepperidge Farm Ancient Grain Bread: 4 points

(Ketchup and mustard are freebies… I think.)

Dessert/Snack: Emerald Trail Mix Berry Blend pouch. 3 points


We ate out on our porch for the first time and it was pretty awesome. Megan us made a hot turkey sandwiches with soup. I had the Campbell’s Chicken and Sausage gumbo and it was also fantastic.

Turkey sandwich with a slice of provolone: 7 points

Campbell’s Chicken and Gumbo: 5 points

Snack: Another heaping bowl of Kix (I’m kind of a fan) 5 points

Total: 31 points

I know you’re not suppose to get up to the minimum but I’ve eaten well today so it’s hard to get up to it. Anyways, if you haven’t seen The Town, go see it. It was awesome. See ya tomorrow.

  1. Hey, sounds like you’re feeling better, yah! Just wanted to say yes, ketchup and mustard are 0 points – I s’pose if you went completely crazy with how much you used it would eventually be worth a point but from the looks of your pic you used 0 points worth. 🙂 As you would say…Legit.

  2. I’ll have to look for mostly fat free dogs. I love hot dogs, but most of them are in the 7 point per dog range. I tried the 99% fat free turkey bologna the other week and it was a lot better then I expected, and was only 1/2 a point per slice. Pretty comparable to 2 oz. sliced turkey breast in points, but in flavor… eh, I like regular bologna better… lol.

    You’re doing better then I am this week, that’s for sure! I just posted an addition to yesterday and today’s eats and am hoping I can resist the urge to snack later before bed. That’s when it always gets tough for me.
