Thursday morning I knew I wasn’t going to make it to the gym since I stayed up a tad too late on Wednesday. So I slept in a bit and then got ready for work.
For some reason I thought I wanted something different for breakfast. I decided to make a fruit & granola salad. I chopped up a pear, an apple, and a banana and threw about a 1/4c of my homemade granola on top. Oh my, I couldn’t even eat it all!! Next time I will only choose 2 fruits!! My eyes were definitely bigger than my tummy! I am estimating I ate about 3 points worth.
My morning snack, yet again, included more granola! I can’t get enough of this stuff!! I mixed up 1/4c with some ww vanilla yogurt for a delish 2 point snack!
Subway is practically a neighbor to my office so I got that for a quick lunch. I got a 6 inch turkey & ham on wheat for 5 points. But after I ordered I realized I should have got a foot long 'cause they are $5 all month long!!
For supper I made another new try, Cheesy Chicken and Macaroni. If this isn’t comfort food, I don’t know what is!! Super yummy & would never guess that it’s healthy! On the side I also had 1c of grapes and a serving of green beans for a 7 point supper.
Cheesy Chicken & Macaroni
- 1 1/2 c macroni (dry) – cooked
- 4 oz cooked chicken breast, diced
- 6 oz lite Velvetta, cubed
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- 1 c lite sour cream
- 1 tsp chicken bouillon granules
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- Garlic & salt to taste
Preheat oven to 350. Spray baking dish. Combine all ingredients and cook over medium heat. Spoon into baked dish and baked for 30 minutes. Serves 6, 4 points each OR 4 servings, 6 points each.
After supper I whipped up a batch of brownies. Once they cooled I cut them out with heart cookie cutters, frosted them, and topped with sprinkles. I wanted to give a little Valentine to the staff in my office!
As you can tell it’s now Friday. I had a great list planned for my day.
- 5am wake up
- get ready & eat breakfast
- 8am work
- 4pm get off work and welcome friends who are staying at our house for the weekend.
Well it didn’t quite go like that. :( Here is a better summary of my day.
- 5am wake up
- lay on couch ‘cause I just wasn’t feeling right
- run to the bathroom
- back to bed to sleep
You get the picture? Ugh!! I think I’m feeling a tad better, but I think I need to give it more time. I’m so bummed, I made Valentines for my staff, my friends are here for the weekend… Well complaining won’t help, I’m trying my hardest to just rest, think positive, and get better ASAP!
