Good evening blog world! The week is over half over and next week at this time I will be on a plane on my way to sunny Florida!
This morning I had to get to work early to get a few extra things done. I didn’t want to miss my workout so I set my alarm for 5:15am and got up! It was hard to get up, but SO worth it in the end! I got in a 30 minute run and 15 minutes of leg weights and made it to work by 7:15am!
I had my morning snack much later than normal today. I guess the morning just got away from me! I mixed up my favorite combo sliced strawberries, ww vanilla yogurt, and 1/4c grape nuts for 3 points. Didn’t get a picture before I mixed it though so you get to see my mush of a snack!
I spent my lunch break chatting my sis from Georgia talking about our up coming trip to Florida. I’m getting so excited for this trip. To be with all my sisters in sunny Florida for a week!! Ok…back to lunch! I made some cooked broccoli with ff cheese and a ham turkey & cheese wrap for 4 points.
I’ve been doing some research lately about protein and I think I want to increase my intake. I am going to try to do this by being aware of protein rich foods and also some protein bars & shakes. I stopped at GNC after work today. I had a coupon for “Designer Whey” thanks to Laura – she told me a little about the protein shakes she takes and their websites, so I checked them out and found a $2 off coupon! Thanks for the info Laura…greatly appreciated! I picked up some chocolate designer whey, a blender bottle (pink of course!), a clif bar, and a muscle milk light bar. I think the extra protein is going to help me with my weight training and also the weight loss portion of it too. I still want to do more research, so if any of you have any good advice definitely let me know! Of course I had to try out my protein shake when I got home. It comes out to only 2 points per serving. I am anxious to try the bars now! But those are for another day.
Supper tonight was “protein packed”! I had a total of 3 hard boiled egg whites, sweet potato fries, 1/2c low fat cottage cheese, and a chicken salad wrap(which I only ate half of ‘cause I was SO full!) for a total of 10 points. I mixed a few of the egg whites in with the chicken salad wrap. It was just ok, but a nice way to “disguise” them! I thought I really liked boiled eggs, but I thought wrong. They are just ok. So this was a high point supper, but VERY filling. I am sure I won’t need anything else to eat tonight….I’m more than satisfied.
I guess we will see how this protein thing goes. I am hoping it helps!
Well I am off to chill on the couch with DH and watch CSI NY. DH hasn’t been feeling well lately so he needs some tender lovin’ care! And I hope I don’t get that icky cold stuff that’s going around…need to be in tip top shape for my trip next week!
