Tuesday at Darci’s house means it WI day! I hopped on the scale this AM and was excited to see the number, 165! My week of eating well at the hospital last week paid off! I lost 2.5 lbs!

Breakfast this morning was simple, but good! I had blueberry muffin oatmeal with 2 slices of toast for 3 points. DSC08712

I have a big last few weeks of September, lots of reports to compile & deadlines to meet! While working on my to-do list I had 1 c strawberries and yogurt for 2 points. DSC08713

It was a cool, overcast day. Because of that, I decided to have some soup for lunch! I had Progresso chicken noodle soup and a cheese sandwich for 4 points. DSC08714

I couldn’t pass up desert! I had a WW cookies & cream ice cream bar for 2 points. DSC08715

I had a productive afternoon at work, ran a few errands after work, and headed home!

I quickly threw supper together & got it in the oven. While it was baking I…………went for a run!!! I haven’t ran since July 22nd!!! Yikes! I was nervous, but anxious to get out there at the same time. I ended up running 2 miles in 22 minutes, not my best time, but I ran the entire way, felt great when I was done, and I’m proud that I did it!

Supper was waiting for me when I got home! We had fiesta chicken & rice bake, a favorite in our house!DSC08716 Fiesta Chicken & Rice Bake
