Happy Hump Day all! Thanks for all of your motivational comments on my last post! I was pretty determined to start my day off right back on track and getting all your positive vibes made me even more pumped and ready to go!
I am re-focusing my efforts to try to get the scale to move DOWN beginning this week. So far, I have been doing a good job of maintaining my weight for the past 4 months ~ boo! I am taking my measurements, setting an activity goal and focusing on all the little successes I have each day since I know they will lead to bigger results down the road.
So, there you have it….I have been doing a lot of thinking during my rebellious week and I am ready to get down to business.
I had TWO BIG cups of Starbuck’s Decaf Verona before I decided what sounded good for breakfast.
I decided that I wanted to celebrate the 80 degrees of sunshine today with The Husband’s Sunshine egg, 2 cuties and a Thomas Double Fiber English Muffin sprayed with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Spray. (3.5 pts)
It’s really funny that the day flies by when you work from home. I never even though about my usual mid-morning snack until almost 5 hours after breakfast ~ awesome! Maybe working in an office all day long makes you want to EAT all day long?!
Lunch was just this amazing sandwich I threw together with what we had in the fridge.
2 slices TJ’s Fat Free Multi-Grain Bread
2 Tbsp TJ’s Avocado’s Number Guacamole
2 oz each ~ Lean Honey Turkey & Honey Ham
BIG slices of red bell pepper
Smooshed with layers of fun ~ 5.5 pts.
I also made a big bowl of spicy Broccoli Slaw topped with spicy peanuts and some more red bell pepper. (2 pts)
I LOVE using TJ’s LF Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette ~ a little goes a LONG way.
Pretty good stats, huh? It’s awesome on salad and on grilled chicken like Chicken Satay 🙂
The contractor’s finished up their work this afternoon and it’s officially official! We have a fancy new Trane Central Heat & Air system that we do not have to do ANYTHING to. It actually knows how to switch from heating to air conditioning automatically and I even heard a rumor you could program it from your phone too….Crazy cool technology.
During my afternoon break, I caught Hungry-Girl talking about Crave Busters on the Rachael Ray Show and also got to see Jillian/Bob on Dr. Oz! I whipped up a “crunch-tastic” snack while watching….a BIG pear, Cabot Cheese and Olive Oil/Rosemary Triscuits (4 pts).
I spent the rest of the afternoon putting our house back together and doing a little cleaning before heading off to my Weight Watcher meeting. I had pondered asking my leader to not show me my weight until next week, but, in the end I changed my mind. I managed to only gain .4 lbs and I really felt like yesterday’s pizza put me over the top.
I had the usual Two Vasquez Spicy Chicken Tacos for dinner (8.5 pts).
I also stole 3 chips and cheesy bean dip from The Husband. (2.5 pts)
I am FINALLY updating my LINK LOVE TAB…..something I haven’t done since I first started blogging. If you want to be added to my lists of links I love (aka my Blogroll), leave a comment below with your link to get linked up 🙂
I am off to read my latest issue of Cooking Light ~ review coming soon!
