Day 175: The Monday After

I hate Daylight Savings like cats hate dogs, republicans hate democrats, and like the Grinch hates Christmas only if he didn’t find out the true meaning of Christmas and instead realized how commercialized it was, making him more jaded and hate filled. Of course, around midnight last night I was all chipper and awake goofing around on the Interwebs. Then I realized “oh crap I need to go to bed!” and I still stayed up a little longer. I didn’t sleep well and then woke up at 5:30 to go to the gym and I was waaaaaay too tired so I stayed in bed. (Even now, I know I need to go to bed yet I’m still up. This is frustrating.) Anyways, let’s talk food.

Breakfast: I had a bowl of Kashi Berry Crisp with skim milk. It was insanely delicious since I haven’t had it in a while. 4 points.

Lunch: I got up to the Capitol a little early today, so I sat outside to eat my lunch. I bought another Hummus and Pretzel combo pack but this time with red pepper hummus. The hummus was really creamy and the pretzel to hummus ratio was a bit off so I was left with too much hummus and not a utensil to get it in my mouth. Sad days. (Speaking of sad days, sorry this picture is horrendously out of focus.) It was only 8 points.

Snack: After I got home, I had some pretzels to hold me over until dinner. Pretzels are awesome because they fill you up so much for a small amount of points. I had 3 points worth.



Dinner: We met up with our friends Daniel and Leah at Cabo’s for dinner. It’s a great place because they have a lot of healthy options  along with burgers and other delicious things. Megan and I split the Verde Enchiladas and got an extra cup of black beans. We use to share a lot but then got out of the habit. It really does save you money and points. Plus, we got chips and salsa (the best in town I might add) so it supplemented the meal a little more even though it didn’t really need it.  It was a great about 12 point meal.

Workout: When I got home, I fended off working by doing a little Wii Fit. My hip flexors were really tight from sitting all day so it was good to do some yoga and other fun stuff. I did a 40 minute circuit with a hodge podge of activities.

So today I got to about 27 points which is under but I might be wrong on the dinner so I’m in the clear. See ya tomorrow.

One more thing! Has anyone tried to grind their own peanut butter or almonds? I’m trying to figure out a way to do it at home. I have a Ninja blender and a coffee grinder. Let me know!

  1. I think the best way is just to whazz* it up in the blender. The ratios I’ve seen are about 2 tbsp of oil for every cup of peanuts, and then like a tbsp of sugar/honey/agave/tigerblood to make it as sweet as you desire. Let me know how it goes…I’ve always been curious!

    *I use the word “whazz” because I’ve been watching Jamie Oliver too much, and because I think it makes me sound more cultured.

  2. The best way to make it is with a food processor and it usually takes about 10-15 minutes of full grinding to get the correct consistency. You shouldn’t need to add any oil but you can if you want. I’d also suggest adding some chocolate chips because really chocolate peanut butter is amazing 🙂
