Day 188 (Monday 5/11)

Happy Monday everyone!

Since it was such a busy, sleep-less weekend I decided to sleep in and not work out. I needed those extra zzzz's!!

For breakfast I had a bowl of honey nut cheerios and a small sliced banana for 5 points.

My morning snack was just like every other weekday, strawberries, yogurt, and grape nuts for 3 points. DSC02555 

Lunch today was quick and yummy! I had a chicken salad wrap and a strawberry smoothie for a total of 5 points. I love having a smoothie to sip on all afternoon. Really keeps me feeling full!DSC02556DSC02558

My little sister got back from Florida today….but only for 1 week. :’( She will be heading back to Florida to find a job that she can continue throughout the school year next year. I was hoping for just one more summer with her! But I am going to enjoy my week with her! Might even take some time off work!! :)

When I got off work lil sis and I hopped on the bikes for a ride. We had so much fun riding along and chatting the whole time! We ended up going WAY longer than what we planned! Our ride was over an hour long! It felt great…all lil sis can say now is how worried she is that she is going to be sore tomorrow! DSC02561

When we got back our neighbor was working on cleaning out some old bushes. They tied a chain around the bush and then to the truck and ripped it out!! It was quite comical…until one bush won and the roots were too deep and ripped the bumper off the truck!! Yikes!!

Afterwards I fired up the grill for supper. We had grilled chicken teriyaki, hot dogs, frozen sweet corn, watermelon, and green bean casserole….a classic summer meal!!! It felt great…yummy supper, bike ride, my sis is home from college!!! Summer is almost here!! I estimated my supper at a total of 12 points.DSC02559

Work was exhausting today…but everything else about today was GREAT!! Esp for a Monday!! I hope everyone else had just as great, if not better day!! Tomorrow’s WI…hoping I don’t gain!! Need to get out of that cycle.

How fun. And you got dinner and a show with the neighbor losing his bumper. haha
You and your sis look a lot alike. glad you'll get that week with her. Sounds like you guys are close.

Your lunch looks so great. That smoothie...wish I had one. I think I need your recipe for the wrap too. :)

I'd love the wrap recipe too! It looks delicious!

I cant wait until I've lost enough weight to ride a bike (and get a bike for that matter)! I think my ass is currently too big for a seat lol

Honey Nut Cheerios! I haven't had those in AGES!

Guess what? You'll never guess...
I dreamt that we met the other night.. ok, weird, I know!! But I dreamt that you worked at Starbucks and I came by to meet up with you because I was in the area!

haha! I woke up and told Steve "guess what I met a blogger in my dream!"

He looked at me weird.

/end creepyness!

Hope you are having a good day!

Hello,

The last couple of times I've opened your blog it wants to go wider than the screen and keeps cutting off the pictures. I don't know if it's me and my older computer or a setting issue...just an fyi.

Thanks for all your comments, the blog is a form of catharsis for me especially right now.
