Two Day Recap

Happy Hump day everyone!! Boy am I glad there are only  work days left this week…it’s been rough!!

I’ll start my recap with Tuesday. For breakfast I had some seedless watermelon (1 point) on my drive to the groomer with Abby. She was in desperate need for a haircut…check out the before and after pictures below!DSC02799

Before heading back to the groomer to pick up my pampered pooch I had my usual “morning mush” of strawberries, grape nuts, and yogurt for 3 points. DSC02805 

 

I picked up Abby and headed home for a quick 6 point lunch. Filled with fruit and super delicious!!

DSC02811All together now! DSC02807Check out the tiny bananas I found at the grocery store…I would way rather have a 1 point banana than a large 2 point one!

 

After work I headed to WW not really knowing what to expect. I ended up gaining .6…putting me at 159.6. But that is still within my goal so I only have 3 more weeks of maintenance left!!

My afternoon/evening snack was a oats & chocolate fiber one bar for 2 points. DSC02812 

I made ham and pineapple pizza for supper. It totaled out to be about 8 points for the three slices. MMMmmmm….love pizza!!DSC02813

After supper our neighbor and a few other friend stopped by. One of the guys had his little 11 month old boy with him. So that was super fun to play with him. I even dug out the few toys I have for him to play with…barrel of monkey’s, mr. potato head, and a few books! The funny thing is, before the baby and his dad showed up I was just telling Kyle that I wanted a baby!! And then hey, one shows up!! :)

I ended up having a MGD 64 and Pomegranate Mikes Hard Lemonade. I am going to count 4 points for the two drinks. MGD is only 2, but I have NO idea on the lemonade. I just know it’s REALLY good!!! If anyone of you happen to know definitely let me know!! We sat out in the garage chatting away until after 11pm…I was ready for my pillow when we finally came in…that’s for sure!! But I sure do love summer nights hanging out with friends!!

TUEASDAY'S STATS
POINTS = 24/22
WATER = 96 oz
ACTIVITY POINTS EARNED = no exercise 
EXERCISE = no exercise

Let me tell you it was definitely hard to get up this morning. I wanted to lay in bed just a little longer! But Kyle got me up and going and once again had some watermelon (1 point) on the drive to work. This watermelon has been SO good, I hope they stay that way this summer!!DSC02820 

Since I had a light breakfast I had two morning snacks a few hours apart. First I had some key lime pie yogurt with grape nuts for 2 points and then a little while later I had my morning mush for 3 points. Keep me feeling satisfied all morning long! I kinda like eating less, but more often.

I had a few errands to run on my lunch break so I grabbed some petite baby carrots to snack on while I was running around town. Hooray for 0 point snacks!!DSC02823

I had to grab a fast lunch. So I just heated up some left over grilled chicken teriyaki breasts for a quick, yummy 5 point sandwich. I also  had a string cheese (1 point) on the drive back to work that I forgot to photograph. [DSC02792[3].jpg]

 

I snacked on a fun size snicker bar for 2 points while working an extra hour. I didn’t get home till after 6. But Kyle was ready to run right away so I changed and we got going. We took a new route tonight and I felt great during the whole run. We didn’t know the distance, but we did know that it was further than we normally run. When we got home we mapped it out on mapmyrun.com (my new favorite website!!) and it was 5.75 miles!! We were so proud of ourselves. We did it in about 56 minutes. And that is with 2, 1 minute walk breaks.

When we got back to our yard our neighbor was out so we stopped over and talked to him for a bit and I had a nice cold Bud Light for 2 points. I had no idea it was taste so good after running…but it SURE did!!

After our long run we were ready to re-fuel. So we headed inside and I was craving fruit! Love that!! So I had yet some more watermelon and an orange for 2 points total.

Looks like you were spot on for the points.

I used to love the Mike's Hard Raspberry Iced Tea but it only came out for one summer, now I'm gonna be on the lookout for the pomegranate flavour.

Awesome job on maintaining!!!

I just love the Abby pics. She is such a sweet looking girl.

You and Kyle have such great lives. I love that you meet up with friends and neighbors on your runs and have a beer on the porch. Sounds like a great neighborhood.

I just bought a 26 pound watermelon yesterday. I hope it's good. :) I LOVE watermelon. I love to make a summer drink out of it by blending some with some sweetener and ice and lemon juice. It's a watermelon lemonade!

Such a cute puppy!

That ham & pineapple pizza looks amazing, did you order it or was it home made??

Kyle and Darci said...

homemade!! the crust was a pre-made one though...but hey it's better point wise than delivery!! :)

Cammy said...

I might have to try one of those pizzas next week! Looks yummy!

I'm a fruit addict too, especially during the summertime. It's so cool and refreshing!
