First off, sorry I didn’t get this posted last night!! We had a busy one!! :) I hope everyone had a great Monday!
I started out my Monday with honey nut cheerios, a small sliced banana, and 1/2 c almond breeze for 4 points. I think this is one of my favorite breakfasts’!
Work has just been SO crazy lately!! But it sure does make the days go fast. Before I knew it, it was noon and I hadn’t had my morning snack. So I quickly mixed up my favorite combo of strawberries, yogurt, and grape nuts for 3 points.
I started out my lunch on the car ride home with a bag of petite baby carrots for 0 points…this is my FAVORITE form of carrots!! They’re just so skinny and crunchy!! :) Then, once home, I made a hot ham & cheese wrap with a side of 1/2c corn for a 3 point lunch
Once home DH and I had to talk ourselves into going for a run. I had a splitting headache for some reason, but we did it. Not for long though. Pounding the pavement and a pounding head are NOT a good combo. So we cut it short around mile 2, wasn’t quite a 20 minute walk/run. Before we headed out the door I snacked on a bag of smart food popcorn for 2 points.
When we got back home our neighbor was out so we went over and chatted with him…which ended up being a REALLY long chat. We didn’t get back in the house till almost 9!!! Those guys can sure get to talking! But it’s ok, we like our neighbor!! :)
I picked some of his rhubarb and when I got in the house I got the itch to make the strawberry rhubarb pie I had been thinking about!! So that is just what I did! And of course I had to sample it too!! I put the ingredients into recipe builder on ww’s website and it came out to 8 points for an 1/8 of it! Wow!! It didn’t quite turn out right. It called for 2 cups of sugar and that made it WAY too runny. I think I might try it again and cut that in half.
Rewind a tad, forgot about all the stuff I ate while the pie was baking!! I had a bowl of honey nut cheerios and a sliced banana for 7 points. And DH and I each had the rest of that chocolate ice cream that was calling our name in the freezer, I had 1 c of it with another sliced banana for 7 points. If you haven’t noticed, I think I am really starting to like adding bananas to EVERYTHING!
Oh and I forgot about the banana (1 point…it was small!) that I ate on the way to the grocery store to pick up a ready made pie crust…yes I used a ready-made one…didn’t want to undertake pie crust at 9pm!!!
It’s Tuesday now and I’m SO nervous about WI 2nite after eating a sugar filled slice of pie and ice cream last night!! Wow-zer…but hey can’t do anything about it now and I can’t let it get to me. I’ll work it off this week!! :)
Later bloggies…gotta get back to work!! ;)
