Day 177 (Thursday 4/30)

It’s “Friday Eve”!!! Love it!!! :)

I didn’t have time to get in a workout this AM, but I did have a few extra minutes to make a nice breakfast. I had a 3 egg white omelet, with 1 slice of ff cheese, and 1/4c  diced lean ham, and strawberries for 4 pointsDSC02383 

My omelet was great to change things up a bit, but it sure didn’t hold me over too long. By 11am I was sure ready for my morning snack, usually I don’t eat it until 12:30ish. And of course you could guess what I had without even looking at my picture! My favorite combo…strawberries, grape nuts, and yogurt for 3 points. DSC02384

 

Lunch today was another “frozen” one. We are SUPER behind at work so I didn’t want to take much time at home. So I heated up my SmartOne’s dinner for 6 points and ate it on the way back instead of taking my usual hour lunch break. DSC02385 

Not sure what my deal is…but I had the snack attack today. Throughout the afternoon at work I snacked on a fiber one bar and a smart food popcorn cluster for 4 points total.

Ok so I bought these SUPER cute new black dress shoes while I was in Florida. (One of the three pairs of black dress shoes I bought while there!) Anyway…today was the first day I wore them to work and by the end of the day I didn’t think they were too cute anymore…in fact I wanted to rip them off my feat and hurl them out the window!!!! Luckily I didn’t, I plan on wearing them to my SIL’s wedding in June. If my feet can take it! My question to all my wonderful bloggies is what can I do to help my poor blistered toes so this doesn’t happen again…is there anyway to make these shoes more comfortable?? I put Band-Aids on mid-day as you can see in the picture, but them they started rubbing on my 2 smallest toes on both feet. :( So if anyone has any “make high heels more comfortable advice”….I am ALL ears!!!

Ok back to food!! Sorry for that “detour”! I thing my blog has turned into “my road to weight loss and my daily happenings”! I hope you guys are ok with that!!

After tending to my blistered toes I toughed up and hit the pavement for a run. Abby joined me today and I quickly wished she would have stayed home. She wanted to stop and sniff every single thing!! I kept having to pull her along. So it was a slow run, but I did my normal route and got done in about 25 minutes (2.5 miles) so not too bad. I dropped her off back at the house and hopped on the bike for a quick 15 minute ride around the neighborhood. I guess I should remember that my legs are about a MILLION times longer than hers! But usually she is practically pulling me along! So note sure why she was lagging…must have been a rough day lazily sleeping around the house! ;) lol

Supper tonight was a new try! And it was GREAT!! From what I’ve seen these are called “crack wraps” and I think I can only guess why!!! They are SUPER addicting!! I was reading Becca’s blog today and came across them and had to try them right away!! You can click here to get “specific” instructions…but they really aren’t that hard! Just three ingredients, 1 wrap, 1 slice of ff swiss cheese, and 2T hummus. For the record hummus and I don’t go too far back. I tried it over Christmas break at my sister’s house and was NOT impressed at all. But when I saw this on Becca’s post today I thought I would give hummus another try! And I am sure glad that I did. So in total my supper was 5 points for the “crack wrap” and steamed veggies w/cheese. DSC02394 

DSC02395Ok so I had lots of new trys today!! After reading Kristin’s post today I knew I wanted to FINALLY try out a homemade smoothie. I’ve had ones at Tropical Smoothie, but never made one for myself! My smoothie contained a bunch of strawberries, 1 banana, 1 c Almond Breeze, and a bunch of ice for 4 points total and it made a TON! I tried giving some to DH, but he wasn’t too fond of it so I just sipped away on it all night while doing things around the house…it made 3 glasses total, but I only got pictures of glass #1 and glass #2!

Besides getting my counter cleaned off I spent the evening going through this GIANT box  that came today! It is from my PartyLite show I had last Monday. I couldn’t believe how much stuff there was! It was kinda fun to get everything all set out and then put everyone’s individual orders together. The last picture is what I got for FREE!!! In total I got 12 candles and 1 diffuser. Can’t wait to burn them and see what I think! They are supposed to burn “clean”…no black stuff on the sides of the jar! I’m super excited about that!DSC02398DSC02399DSC02400

Well my favorite bloggers it’s almost 10:30 and I’m ready to hit the hay! Hope everyone had a “thrilling Thursday”!!!

Eeek sorry about the shoes. I really don't know, hummm. But those shoes are pretty!!!

Love all the pictures you add to your blog and don't worry about it not being totally about weight loss! I love to hear what's going on in your daily life too!!!!
As for the shoes -- I'm not sure if there is anything you can do other than keep wearing them and breaking them in. It should only take a few times before they are much better.
Have a great weekend!

Kelly said...

That's a shame about the shoes because they're so cute. I don't have any tips for you though. :(

I love the way you made all of the food so pretty with the strawberries being sliced and fanned. :)

I'm going to try that crack wrap. That sounds like something I'd like. Yum!

The smoothie looks so good! And yum to the crack wraps, I will have to give them a try. I adore hummus :)

As for the shoes, you can get these Band Aids (by Band Aid) that are sort of jelly like (they are clear) that help prevent blisters. Dancing Sweet Pea is right, wear them a few times and they will get more comfortable!

Becca said...

Oh you poor thing, I'm so sorry about your feet! I had a similiar situation yesterday when my co-worker and I went for a run, I got two HUGE blisters on my feet from my shoes- it was horrible! Anyway, I hope your feet feel better! :)

Yay for the crack wrap! I loved it and it will definitely be something I eat often!

And I just bought a magic bullet so that I can make some of Kristin's smoothie recipes, I can't wait!

I wish I had the answer to uncomfortable shoes! They're really cute, so I hope you figure something out.

Your smoothie looks really good! They are the perfect summer treat!

I've had a few of those candles over the years, and they're really nice! Your house is gonna smell good. ;)

*love* the shoes! Too cute!

There's a product called a "blister stick" or something like that, kind of like chapstick for your feet. I found it in the foot products section of my local drugstore. It might help. "Might" being the operative word. Or you could just try some chapstick. :)

super cute shoes but I have no advice. I don't wear shoes like that for that same reason!
