A Pretty Awesome Day of Nothing!

May 27, 2014

A Great Lazy Day

Monday’s plans were…..nothing. Not a thing. Zilch. Zero. Except for balancing the check book, and getting in some exercise. And that’s exactly what I did.

Relaxed all morning. Made myself a yummy omelet, took the pups for a nice walk, then ran 1.25 Miles, and walked almost 3 after that. Looked at the checkbook for a long time and tried to figure out where all the money goes, then went out to dinner, and remembered that’s where some of it goes. 🙂 Not nearly as often as it used to though.

Sangria?

Late in the afternoon, I really wanted to sit on the deck and have a beer or two, or open up a bottle of our new wine, but I didn’t want to spend the Points, and since I did look at the scale on Friday, I’m anxious for a loss this week. I know if stay as close to 26 points a day as possible, and get my exercise in, those gained pounds will come off. 

I decided to try to make a simple Sangria. I used 16 oz of Trader Joe’s Sauvignon Blanc ($2.99), and one can of Diet Ginger Ale. I added just a few ice cubes (I didn’t want it to get watery) and several frozen strawberries. Not too shabby. Makes four servings at 4 PointsPlus per serving. One completely satisfied my want for a drink on a lazy afternoon.

Omelet’s

I love an omelet. I eat Egg Whites several days a week because….A) I like them. B) They keep me full for a long time.

I’ve tried several times to figure out the best way to make my omelet look like a real omelet, and more times than I can believe, I’ve ended up making scrambles eggs, I toss in my omelet fillings, and I call it a breakfast skillet.

I’ve figured out, it’s confidence that makes the perfect omelet!

 I’ve got the flipping thing down pat now. The secret is to cook the eggs until they are just set, then flip with confidence! Don’t over think it. Just toss those set eggs in the air, and you’ve done it! Add your favorite fillings!

You guys all probably already know how to do this……
