Like my creative title? ;) Couldn’t come up with anything at almost midnight!
I started my Sunday out with an apple and a fiber one bar on the way to church for 3 points. I knew we wouldn’t eat anything until 11am or later and I didn’t wan to be s-t-a-r-v-i-n-g and gorge on anything in sight. And it definitely helped!
Church was great this morning! Afterwards we had our weekly dinner with Kyle’s parents. There is a Chinese buffet in town that has breakfast until 11am and if you get there before 10:30am it’s only $5.69/person! Not bad! I loaded my first plate with FRUIT! I had pineapple, bananas, cantaloupe, oranges, and a few pieces of jello for just 5 points.
My 2nd plate was veggie-ful with a little leg on the side! ;) I had some corn, cucumbers, broccoli, and a chicken leg (minus the skin) for 5 points. I’m estimated high: 3 for the chicken leg, 1 for corn, and 1 for the ranch. I really don’t think it was 1 point’s worth of ranch, but would rather go high, than low!
After brunch Kyle and I made our weekly grocery run and headed home for a nap! When I woke up I hit the kitchen and started baking! I whipped up a double batch of chocolate chip cookies! Our neighbor works for MidAmerican and has been working 16 hour days since the ice storm hit in on Wednesday. He said yesterday it doesn’t look like it will end until next Friday! Wow! So we wanted to give him and his buddies a little treat!
And if you are a living, breathing human there is NO WAY you can resist a few bites of cookie dough while baking! So of course I had some… and a warm cookie fresh out of the oven! I’m going to count my splurge as 7 points! I think if I would have figured that out before I ate it, I wouldn’t have. But it was still good!
After my bake-fest I hit the gym! I got in 36 minutes on the cross ramp, burning over 400 calories! (Maybe that will even out that cookie dough I ate earlier!) ;) I realized it was ten till 6 and rushed home! I didn’t want to miss the Viking game! But don’t worry I was supporting my team while working out! This is me…post work out! For supper tonight I tried something new, bbq chicken pizza! I sautéed some green peppers and red onions in a teaspoon of olive oil.
Then I shredded a cooked chicken breast and mixed it with a tablespoon of bbq. I used a flat out for my crust, and 2 TBS of bbq for the sauce. Then I topped it with the chicken mixture, sautéed veggies, and 1/4c 2% shredded mozzarella for a total of 8 points. MMmmmm!!!
And the stinkin’ Vikings couldn’t pull out a win. It’s a sad day around our house. I guess we’ll be cheering for the Colts in the Super Bowl now!
Do you eat cookie dough or are you the toughest human being on earth and can resist it?!?!
