Pasta Tuesday

For some reason today I hit snooze for over an hour! Kyle and I stayed up late Monday night having a good talk, so I have to say it was worth it, even though I was dragging!

I ate my cereal on the run (not literally!) this morning. I had honey nut cheerios and a small sliced banana for 5 points! Definitely one of my top 5 favorite breakfasts’!!!DSC02912 

We only had 3/6 people in the office today…it was NUTS!! I didn’t get much done other than take calls and students in my office. But it sure made the day go fast though! Summer hours don’t hurt either!

I had my morning snack really stinkin’ close to the afternoon! It was the usual morning mush (1 1/2 c strawberries, 1/4 c grape nuts, and strawberry yogurt) for 3 points. DSC02913 

I am just loving these petite carrots! Speaking of, I need to stock up again! I had a small bowl of them on the drive home for lunch for 0 points! DSC02914 

For some reason I wasn’t in the mood for hardly anything for lunch. I piddeled around the kitchen for a while and wasted too much time and ended up not having enough time to make much of anything so I had a Smart Ones meal and added some more of my own broccoli for 6 points.

For desert I had a oats and chocolate fiber one bar for 2 points on the drive back to work. Hit the spot that was craving chocolate!! :) DSC02904

After work this afternoon I got another tan in and then rushed home because I wanted to be able to ride my bike to WW. And that is just what I did. (35 minutes total, there and back) And to think I thought I was running behind schedule, not even, I was 15 minutes early! And I am happy to say I maintained for the 4th week. Only 2 more to go!! I cannot wait!! And I learned about a new class from a fellow WW member that the Y is offering that I REALLY want to check out! Hopefully I will have some news on this on Thursday!

When I got home from WW I was searching the cupboards trying to figure out what would make my tummy happy! And then I came across the box of velvetta and I knew it….mac n cheese!! So I made homemade mac n cheese for a total of 6 points. Totally hit the spot!

Here is what went into my mac n cheese:

  • 2 oz whole wheat pasta, cooked
  • 2 oz 2% Velvetta, melted
  • sprinkle of milk
  • steamed broccoli

Hopefully all these carbs in all this pasta today will help me on my run day tomorrow…or do you think that is just a myth?!?!

So around 8ish I was really craving some ice cream and that isn’t something that we usually keep in the house, so I hit the road to the grocery store and picked some up…along with some cake!! Now I know you are thinking I probably blew my points for the day..but nope!! I bought those little 100 calorie hostess cakes! Satisfied my craving for chocolate and ice cream!! And only 4 points!! :) DSC02918

After my desert I got to work on my “to-do” list.

Hey girl, are you still trying to lose weight? Or are you in complete maintenance mode now?

How did you decide what your goal weight was going to be?

your morning mush looks delicious, I really need to try it, I see it on your blog all the time and keep thinking, that could be good :-)
Not a fan of yogurt but maybe with the added goodness I could get over it!

These all look delicious. This is a really good way to use the power of small. Taking the time for yourself that it takes to prepare a good meal is the real trick to eating well and losing weight.
