Përshëndetje (That’s hello in Albanian)
Once again, another gorgeous day in FL (are you seeing the pattern?) This morning I played racquetball for the first time in about a year and a half and it was awesome. I felt like I wasn’t near as sluggish on the court so I’ll definitely call that a win (even though I lost. Regardless, Gerard and Adam better watch out tomorrow.) I did forget to bring my water bottle (this comes in to play in a few paragraphs.. well in a few sentences but whatever) so I was hurting after. (Tip of the day: always drink water when you work out.)
Breakfast: Kashi Honey Sunshine. Awesomeness in a box. 5 points.
Snack: After forgetting my water bottle this morning, I decided to buy a Powerade before my class to rehydrate (I was going to get a smoothie at Leach but all the fruit was frozen! How are you suppose to make smoothies with out fruit? Fail.) but anywho one bottle was a thundering 4 points along with something like 54 grams of sugar! Holy schnikes what a fail! I was not impressed, but a little more hydrated.
Lunch: I was super starving (the highest level of hunger) and a Smart One did not sound appealing but it was pretty much all we had in the house. It turned out to be really good since it was one of my favorites. It’s really good if you sprinkle a little cheese on top (not too much though!) Plus there were coupons in the box. Score! As you can see from the box it was only 4 points so a good light lunch but you’ll need a snack later in the day. And of course.. an 1 point orange.
Afternoon Snack: After Megan’s class we went to my “Diet Coldstone”(if you say that you better give me credit) Hiro’s Frozen Yogurt and as always it was amazing. I’m such a huge fan of their Taro yogurt but if I wasn’t doing this whole living better thing I would totally jump on the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies and Cream (Yes, it’s one flavor.) So as you can see I got a ton of blueberries and strawberries and not as much yogurt this time. It came out to a legit 3 points and last time I was in there I told the girl who worked there about the blog and then she asked me about it today. Pretty tight. So if you are reading this Hiro’s gal, thanks for reading.
Dinner: We made that awesome Tamale Casserole from the Weight Watchers cookbook (if you haven’t bought this cookbook yet, click on this link and buy it or at least put it on your Amazon wish list!) The serving sizes are huge for it and it really doesn’t feel like you are on any sort of diet. It’s also good because it’s ground turkey. Although it has a a whole chopped up jalapeno in it, its really good with a little salsa and a few chips. I had 2 servings which was only 12 points and the 9 chips were 3 points. By then end I was stuffed but not gross (and that’s the difference between eating well and being unhealthy.)
So overall, I ate a total of 32 points plus a Fudgesicle coming right out to 33 points. So like I said tomorrow I’m going to play racquetball. What do you do with your friends to get some exercise? Any tips? See ya tomorrow.
