Just an awesome weekend!

May 29, 2012

We spent the weekend doing lots of fun Memorial day things……visiting the WWI memorial, spending time with friends, eating out and enjoying the deck in the mornings and evenings. Last night we watched Red Tails. Slow to start, but then it got really good. I so wish I would have been more interested in history as a kid!

Today Mike worked and I spent the entire day doing chores that didn’t get done Saturday or Sunday. I needed to go to the store today, but I had several other things on the agenda…..laundry, lawn mowing, housework, so the store never did happen, which somewhat explains some of the odd things I ate today.

Normal breakfast for me……bacon and cheese egg white omelet.

On the deck, of course……With strawberries and blueberries.

Then the day just got crazy. I was trying to get the treadmill in between loads of laundry and incoming phone calls, and before lunch! But it wasn’t happening. While trying to not eat lunch, I ate two containers of sugar free jello……

The last of my Cheese and Veggie soup……


…….almonds, a banana and two pieces of string cheese. Great.

I finally decided to get out of the house and mow. It was crazy hot, Tucker got out of the backyard and I had to get in the car to go find him (two houses away), I had to heave the weed eater over my fence and trim the neighbors side, because SHE WON’T DO IT! Then I ran out of weed whacker string and quite possibly cursed…….a lot…….to myself. I was cranky, hot, thirsty and tired. I came inside and lifted weights (really working on these arms!) then called it a day for the exercise. I worked on the yard for a good hour and a half. According to my lovely WW online tools, I earned at least 4 activity points for mowing the lawn. I’ll take it!

I looked in the freezer for something healthy to eat since the veggie crisper was bare and I feel I might be overdoing a bit on the fruit. I did not get fat eating too much fruit, but eating too much of it can slow down the weight loss process. I had a package of this………


Some brussels sprouts I bought some time ago. I have roasted fresh ones and really liked them, but I hadn’t tried these.

And I won’t again……not a fan. Mushy…..ick.


Now I was just craving a treat, and I was out of my smoothie mix. What to do? Peanut butter! So I toasted a frozen waffle and topped it with Better N Peanut Butter and a sliced banana! That hit the spot!

Dinner was turkey burgers topped with caramelized red onions and sweet potato fries, but my pictures did not turn out to appealing…..

The burgers topped with onions…..sooooo good! They serve them this way at a restaurant we go to, but with a bun, and we love it! Now we just have them at home a lot! No bun needed.

Fries! Yum!

Not bad for having no groceries in the house?

To or row? Groceries!

Refresh…I can eat 26 points a day.
I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise.
I have an allowance of 49 points that I can dip into if I chose.
I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.
