So today was beautiful in Tallahassee. When we woke up this morning it was 53 outside! It was almost winter like. Anyways, today was a clean slate, a new week to make some progress on getting healthy.
Workout: Today I did a pretty extensive arm/chest workout and it was rough but in the good way. My arms and chest are still my problem areas so I look forward to my arms days. I used a combination of machines and free weights. I want to at least be close to being able to do a pull up by the end of the summer but we’ll see how that goes.
Breakfast and snack: I had a bowl of Sunflower and pumpkin seed Good Earth cereal and it was okay. It’s not sweet at all so it’s definitely not what I’m use to with granola cereal but it was good nonetheless. It’s also kind of high in points: 5 points for 1/2 cup and a 1/2 cup of milk. After my workout I was starving, but luckily I was smart enough to bring a bag of almonds to eat during my break in the class. Those 3 points of almonds saved me.
Lunch: It was still slim (kyle) pickins (anyone get that reference?) for lunch today at our house, but we did have some cans of tuna so I tried my hand at making tuna salad. It turned out pretty well! I used a can of tuna, a few dolips of hellman’s light, a few cut up pickle slices, some pepper, and a good squeeze of spicy brown mustard. I just mixed it all together with a fork and toasted some bread. I was really impressed with how it turned out! Best of all, for two sandwiches it was only 6 points! For a snack after I had some Sweet and Salty nuts for 4 points.
Snack: while I was watching Spongebob (I love the summer) I had a Luigi’s lemon Italian Ice which was the BOMB! It was only 1 point too!
Dinner: Tonight is still college night at Chick Fil A so we went there for a little date. (We also saw Bridesmaids this afternoon and it was hilarious.) Anyways, I had the 8 piece chicken nuggets and Megan and I split a large fruit cup. The fruit cup is not as filling as the fries, but it’s not as greasy (obviously.) I wish there was a happy medium between the two that wasn’t high in calories. Anyways, with the nuggets and one packet of BBQ sauce dinner was only 7 points.
Snack: I had a piece of matzos with some laughing cow cheese for 3 points.
Dessert: To conclude our date night, we went over to Yogurt Mountain for some dessert. I had some swirl of dulce de leche and snickerdoodle and it was sexy delicious. It was sooooooo good. By the time I realized I had forgotten to take a picture, my cup was empty. Awe well, 5 points.
So today I was at 34 points so with exercise points I was right within my points. Good day. See ya tomorrow.
