Another Rainy Morning…….

September 5, 2012

I wasn’t sure if the entire Walking Club would show up Tuesday morning or not (the other member and her dog). But I headed out into the light drizzle and black sky with positive thoughts. I was positive I wanted to be back in bed! When I reached the designated meeting spot, I was excited to see my walking partner did NOT show up! I decided she was home in bed, thinking it was Monday, or thinking it was pouring, or both. By now it was not a light drizzle, but a light rain. I was so happy to be able to go back home to my warm bed, with good reason. So instead of our 30 minute walk………I walked 4 miles in the rain! I would have been grumpy all day had I really gone back home and went to bed!

I switched up breakfast a bit. Reason one……I am tired of my egg whites.
Reason two………I was out of eggs.

Toast with Better N Peanut Butter and sliced Banana.
3 PPV

WW Mini Ice Cream Cone (sweet tooth around 11:00)
2 PPV

Lunchtime!
Tilapia
Chilled Grilled Asparagus
6 PPV

I love leftovers! I did heat up the tilapia, but the asparagus cold, was awesome!

Okay…..I keep working at Greek Yogurt, due to the protein, and I am pretty sure I will never say….”I LOVE GREEK YOGURT!”

However, I found this suggestion on a blog recently. Mix 2 T. of PB2 Chocolate in your plain nonfat Greek Yogurt! So I gave it a try…..

I only had PB2, not PB2 Chocolate.

GROSS!

Then I added 1 T. Of Coca Powder and 1 packet of Truvia, and put it in the freezer for 5 minutes to get it Super Duper Cold! Then I sliced a banana, cuz that’s how I roll, always with a banana.

Jackpot!

I really did like it!
Bonus?
3 PPV and……..

24 g of Protein!

HOLLA!

The most beautiful…..biggest…….blackest………juiciest……..

Grapes………I’ve ever had.

0 PPV


Awe NUTS!
5 PPV!
If something is going to be good for you in only a small portion, it really should be lower in POINTS!!!
21 nuts was 5 PPV!
And I did NOT need the salt!!!

Dinner…..
Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad
Zucchini Boats
10 PPV

I am not sure what I was expecting here. They didn’t suck, but I’m not sure I would make them again. I might. I guess I was thinking bruschetta, but got soggy zucchini with yummy toppings.

I took advantage of the grilled chicken breast I cooked a while back and froze, and took two breast out and made a big Caesar with it for the main course.

Always good, and filling.

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.

The food I ate today and it’s PPV.

Breakfast = 3
Snack = 2
Lunch = 6
Snack = 8
Dinner = 12

Total = 31

Activity Points Earned Today = 4
Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 18
How many glasses of water I drank today = 12

I really only wanted to eat 26 PPV today. I went over a bit with my Olive Oil on the zucchini and the unplanned nuts in the afternoon!

I took Tucker out for a “poop walk” at about 10:00 p.m. I was really thinking a quick “up the street, down the street” thing, but he wasn’t having any part of it. I was tired and really just wanted him to hurry up. I was saying in my sweetest…..talk to your doggie voice…….”Come on Buddy, just go poopy so we can go to bed.”

Nope.

So, I walked a little further up the block, then back, then even further, then back, then REALLY far, and wouldn’t you know it, I see someone I know as I stand there in my p.j. Pants, flip flops and NO BRA! And THAT…..should never happen outside this house. It’s actually quite dangerous. I could trip.
