Snow Day!

Happy Wednesday everyone! Well as I said at the end of my Tuesday post I had a delay for work and we ended up closing. One of the many perks of working at a college! :) We are in an ice warning, anticipating .25-.50 accumulation of ice!! But don’t worry I didn’t skip my morning workout! I slipped and slid my way to the gym and got in 61 minutes on the cross ramp (burned over 650 calories!) and then I did 10 minutes of abs and stretching.

I stopped to see Kyle for a few minutes and then went to McDonalds…don’t freak out though, it was to get a RedBox movie…not food! But I have to admit when I pulled in, I was thinking, hmm a breakfast sandwich sounds pretty good right now! So instead of completely wasting 14+ points on a drive thru breakfast (I’d like to say I never intended on doing AT ALL, I just like to compare!!!) I came home and made my own point friendly, nutritious breakfast!!

I picked up these whole wheat thin buns at the grocery store the other day. They are VERY good and only 1 point!  They worked perfect for the breakfast sandwich I was craving!!DSC05780

I made 3 eggs whites, added 6 slices of sliced ham, and finally a slice of ff cheese for a delicious & filling 4 point breakfast sandwich! (I split the ingredients and 2 open face sandwiches…makes it seem like you get more!) McDonalds doesn’t have anything on this!! ;)DSC05783

I also peeled an orange (1 point) to have on the side! So juicy and delicious!DSC05782

Well I’ve been back at it for 1 week and I couldn’t be happier! I’m feeling good, full of motivation and dedication! I stepped on the scale this morning and it said 169.5, a 5lb loss!!! I was super excited to see that. Only 10 1/2 more lbs to lose for the sister challenge and 19.5lbs to goal! I CAN DO THIS!!!

Around 11am I got a call from Kyle saying he was getting off work early ‘cause they were slow!! I was SO excited to have a “snow day” at home w/my man!! We took a quick nap when he got home and when I woke up I was quite hungry so I snacked on a serving of wheat thins for 2 points. DSC05786

The wheat thins didn’t fully do the trick so I ate a small banana for 1 point and that helped my hunger a lot! DSC05785

I spent the afternoon doing laundry and balancing our accounts. Later we ran a few errands and rented a movie. We ended up picking out the Invention of Lying. While watching it I munched on some light popcorn for 1 point. DSC05787

Kyle warmed up some left over pizza for supper so I was on my own. I ended up making cheesy chicken & broccoli for a total of 9 points. It consisted of 3 oz chicken breast, 2 oz whole wheat pasta, 2 oz 2% Velveeta, and broccoli! It turned out to be a HUGE portion…but I finished it off since I didn’t have an official lunch! DSC05788

Schools are already starting to delay for tomorrow too, who knows I might get to sleep in a bit tomorrow! I know winter weather isn’t fun, but I sure to love when it gives me a free day(s) off work!!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Wednesday!

sounds like a great day to me. We have thick thick fog and snow is on it's way, we had a few weeks break but now it's starting again!

So excited for you and 5 pounds you are back!!!!!!

5 pounds?!! WOW, way to rock the scale!

I have a weakness for mac n cheese. :) I need to make that with the broccoli.

Way to go on the workouts!

Oh and if you get the caesar salad with the low fat balsamic dressing it's pretty decent in points. And it's good! I get it with the grilled chicken. Quite tasty. :)

You're going to be back at goal in no time.
