Happy Monday friends! I got to sleep in once again this morning. We had a 2 hour delay that was announced last night with all the blowing snow that’s flying around and then around 8am we ended up closing. Hooray for another snow day!
I wanted to wait a few days after I was sick to give an update on my weight. I weighed in this morning and was at 163, which is a 1.5lb loss from my weight last week! I was really hoping to be 162 right now and lose 2 lbs these last 2 weeks of February to meet my March 1st goal weight of 158, so we’ll see how that goes! Just need to stay focused and on plan!
If you haven’t noticed yet, you should check out my new links to the left (i.e. progress pictures, about me, goals) and let me know what you think!
After catching up on blogs & losing track of time I decided I need to get some breakfast! I toasted 2 left over pancakes from yesterday, topped them with warm cinnamon apples & a sprinkle of granola!! I also had an orange on the side for a 4 point breakfast! Yum-o!!!
After breakfast I got my list together and ventured out into the wind & snow! I stopped at Wal-Mart, Target, Hy-Vee, and a quick stop to see my man @ work! I didn’t get home till 3pm and was ready for some lunch! I heated up 1c of chili with a sprinkle of ff cheese and had 5 ff crackers and a few baby carrots on the side for a wonderfully warm 7 point lunch.
Kyle and I are headed east this weekend to Chicago! Kyle’s sister and her husband live there, so we’re going to visit! We have a few things planned…of course shopping, dinner at the Signature Room on the 95th floor of the John Hancock building, and Kyle wants to go to Game Works (he’s a kid at heart)! Does anyone have any recommendations of something fun and unique that you’ve done or always wanted to do in the Windy City?
I spent my afternoon getting ready for our trip! I pre-portioned snacks into baggies and put them & a few other snacks into 2 large containers, one for the way there and one for the way home! And my list of things to grab from the fridge is all ready to go as well!! I also got my clothes picked out & suitcase packed. I just have to throw in my things I use everyday!
While supper was baking I mixed up my favorite combo! In the mix was 1 1/2c strawberries, vanilla ww yogurt, and 1/4c homemade granola for 3 points.
Supper tonight is a favorite of Kyle’s, Creamy Ham & Potato Bake. I had 1 serving and 1/2c of green beans for 4 points.
I’m all snuggled in, waiting for Kyle to get off work, and watching the Bachelor! It’s kind of my guilty pleasure!
G’nite blog friends!
