Well, finally……

July 10, 2015

I had a successful day in the healthy eating department yesterday. I ate a smart breakfast, I packed a snack to take to the Food Truck, and I did eat lunch at the food truck, but it was a smart choice. The rest of the day felt easy to make the best choices. I drank a ton of water and I even chatted with a few neighbors before dinner who were having drinks, while I sipped on a latte. Yay! 

I’ve got some sort of an icky cold, or alergies, or something, but I feel blah and still have done no exercise this week. I’m the absolute worst at knowing what “over the counter” drugs to take when I don’t feel great, so I usually take a lot of Advil and hope for the best. Yesterday I bought some DayQuil and NyQuil since all of the symptoms I have were listed on the box, and I am hoping that will do more than the Advil has.

It would be nice to have no rain today so I can mow the lawn. If I’m not having a ridiculous coughing attack when I’m done mowing, I’ll walk a few miles.

I’m off to my Weight Watcher Meeting! I hope you all have a great day and a Happy and Healthy Weekend!

Here are yesterday’s eats……


Breakfast – 4 PPV

4 Egg Whites Scrambled with 1 oz White Potato, Red Bell Pepper, Onions, 1 Laughing Cow cheese Wedge, topped with 1/8 Smashed Avocado and Salsa with a Pear and Black Coffee.

I was setting myself up for a successful day!



Snack – 3 PPV

This messy bowl of 1 Cup of Nonfat Plain Greek Yogurt with a dash of Cinnamon and a few drops of Vanilla Stevia with Strawberries. LOVE THIS SNACK!!



Lunch – 6 PPV

1/2 C. Chicken Salad on a bed of arugula on a Flour Tortilla.



Snack – 3 PPV

Grande Nonfat Latte



Snack – 5 PPV

    Thanks Pam. I’m trying really hard today to just rest and not do anything. I’m not very good at that.

    I LOVE that you took your Bra off to weigh in! Totally sounds like something I would do! And…it worked for you!

    I’ll get some floor pictures posted. We really love the darker color. Cozy.

  2. Julia, sure hope you feel better soon. Feeling yucky sucks. Also wanted to say good luck with your new challenges you’ve set for yourself…I’m always so impressed with your determination with your goals. Love it! Hope your WW meeting went well. My meeting is Friday too. I actually took my bra off today at weigh-in so I wouldn’t show a gain! It worked! Stay healthy — Pam

    Ps would love to see pics of the new floors

    You’re right, asking the pharmacist is best, and sometimes I do. Hopefully the NyQuil will do it’s job!

    I love a smashed sweet potato with a soft egg! I’d not had it with asparagus before, but I will eat that combo again for sure!

    Maybe get your walk in early before it’s too humid out! 🙂

    My plans for this weekend are to do absolutely nothing, and I LOVE it!


  4. I learned to talk to the pharmacists at the drug store for help–I’m lucky that the Walgreens I go to has two I can talk to.
    Some sun would lower the mold count here. The high count bothers my sinuses.
    I like your egg breakfast and can’t wait to try sweet potato and egg.
    I had some days here I could walk but didn’t. Now the humidity is going to rise and then I’ll walk!–ugh.
    I didn’t hear about any plans for your weekend but have a good one no matter what.
