Why hello young reader!
Remember that time my Super Seminoles beat UNC for their first ever ACC championship title? I DO!!! What an epic game! (I apologize to my neighbors who heard me yelling like a banshee this afternoon…) Anyway, so last week had its ups and downs with eating since I was gone for a few days but it came out okay. I lost 1.2 pounds this week. Not much, and I am 240.2 so I am so close to break in to the 230’s (again) but this week is all about counting points both on the front end and the back end. Thursday on has been the issue. Anyone who has counted points or calories knows that it does get tiring so I have just been losing steam at that point. I’m just going to get through it this week and try to get a rhythm going. We shall see what happens.
Breakfast: I had a wafflewich with a delicious organic banana from Earth Fare. If you really want to taste the difference between organic and conventional, taste test a banana or an apple. The difference are very apparent. Anyway, pretty delicious and a hearty 7 points.
Lunch: Yesterday, we made these epic lettuce wraps from the always-awesome Cooking Light (this is the recipe from a blog. Enjoy.) and we had leftovers. Hooray! I only had 4 points of leftovers but it was super filling!
Snack: When I watching history unfold this afternoon, I had a Lean Pocket. We don’t have any chips really to snack on (in hindsight I should have made some popcorn but I just now thought of that) so I went with something that wasn’t great. Fail? I wouldn’t say that (but at this point I’m sure thinking that it was…) 6 points
Yumtastic Awesomeness: After to our excursion to Lucy & Leo’s on Friday, Megan decided to try her hand at baking. It was a fantastic success. She made these epic peanut butter and chocolate cupcakes with peanut butter frosting. While they are delicious, they were about 8 points a piece so I ate only one today.
Dinner: Tonight, Megan and I went to Pizza Hut for a “season finale” if you will of Spring Break. We ordered a large Thin n’ Crispy with cheese. Don’t let the name fool you though, it’s still 6 points a slice. However, a slice of large pan with pepperoni is 9 points a slice, so there is still quite a bit of difference. I kind of went nuts and had three slices along with a salad. Dinner was 20 points. That is bad, no doubt, but it made me think about all the times I would go to a pizza buffet and eat 5 slices a plate! I did that all my life from elementary on! I’m still eating less at 25 than I did when I was 10. Pretty crazy. I’m glad that I have been blessed with the new willpower I have to live better and to eat healthy.
So today was bad, but I’m actually tracking my weekly points now (which I have 35 of) so the cupcake and my extra points will go in to my in to that. In total though, I got to45 points.Yikes. I have 17/35 extra points. This week will be interesting.
So here’s what I need from you, dear reader, keep me in check. If we eat together or you see me around, ask me how it’s going in the ol’ food department. Or, if you want to work out or play a sport give me a call! Let’s get physical, physical. See ya tomorrow.
