Take that week 1!!!

So today marked the start of week 2. So this morning I hopped on the scale first thing to see the results from my first week.        Drum roll please…………….. 










The scale said 174!! If you recall last week I was 179.5, so that means I’ve lost 5.5lbs!!! DSC07863

My breakfast was a repeat, but still good. I had blueberry muffin oatmeal with 1/4 c blueberries for 2 points. DSC07864

I had a busy morning. I needed to get lots done because I knew my afternoon was full of meetings. I did manage to sneak in 1 c watermelon for 1 point. DSC07865

I jetted home for a quick lunch! I had a serving of steamed broccoli, 1 c cantaloupe, 1/2 cottage cheese, and a toasted ham & swiss sandwich. I ended up only eating 1/2 of the sandwich because I burnt (woops!) it pretty good, so my lunch totaled 4 points. DSC07866
Since I didn’t finish my sandwich I counted out 15 animal crackers to snack on throughout the afternoon for 2 points to help tide me over till supper. DSC07867

I spent the majority of my afternoon in a little conference room with 3 other people. Not too fun, but we got lots done! I did have 3 twizzlers for 2 points during the meeting. Afterwards I put in some extra time in my office to get some things done and came home around 6:30pm.

Once I got home I threw supper together quick and put it in the oven. I had 45 minutes while it baked to get a run in! I ended up running 3.5 miles in 40 minutes. Whew! I was wore out by the end, that heat is rough!DSC07878

Supper tonight was another one of my favorites, fiesta chicken & rice bake! DSC07879
