Playing Catch Up!

October 15, 2016

It’s been a few days since I’ve sat down to blog, so I have a little catching up to do.

Wednesday was a Food Truck day, and I wanted to eat everything that we serve up in the truck! There is something about that cooler weather setting in that makes me want to eat big servings of hot and delicious food! Cant explain it. Comforting I suppose. The weather was a little cool and dreary on Wednesday, and we were not super busy, and I just wanted to eat. I didn’t overdue, but I thought about eating the entire time I was in that truck!!

After work, I walked 4 miles with a friend and that put my eating choices back into perspective for the evening. Thank goodness.

Thursday, I worked early morning at a WW meeting, so I grabbed a Larabar and cup of coffee and headed out the door.

Right after that, I headed to work the Food Truck. Again, I was really wanting to eat the whole time we were working, but we kept just busy enough that there was little time for eating, so that was a good thing.

After working at the Food Truck, we had a memorial service to go to. This is never a happy occasion, I know, but this was a friend of ours that was a healthy and robust guy, full of energy and zest and a great sense of humor. Just over a month ago, he went to the ER with a staff infection, and never left the hospital. He was 56 years old with a wife, two children and three grand children. It was just a really sad day. His family insisted on keeping the mood light and asked everyone to wear Beach Wear to the memorial at the church, and to the party at their home afterwards. They knew that it was what he would want. Before the memorial service at the church began, Jimmy Buffet songs and similar songs were playing to a slide show that the family had put together. I don’t know how they did it, but the family did an amazing job and kept the mood light and full of celebration.

Between the memorial service and the party, a few of us met at a bar that we knew that our friend liked and we all snacked on appetizers and drank beer, myself included. I was mindlessly eating, and I felt it when I woke up on Friday. Ugh.

Friday, my house felt like it was a disaster, (as did my stomach) so I spent the day getting it back in order and eating right. I counted everything and tracked it and worked on that goal of 169 by November 1st that I set for myself.

This morning, I was at a WW meeting at 6:15 to work, and then worked one after that. There is seriously so much information to absorb!

After work, breakfast with my pops.

I’m leaving the house today at 3:30 for a night out with the girls that includes dinner, drinks and a Florida Georgia Line concert. I plan to be on my best behavior!

I will not list everything that I ate over these last few days, but here are yesterday’s eats and I plan to post every bite this week!

Breakfast – 8 SP

My favorite Breakfast….a bunch of veggies, a crumbled slice of Bacon and Sweet Potato all topped with an Egg

Lunch – 8 SP

Toss a bunch of veggies in the skillet with some Olive Oil and Sea Salt and cook until veggies are tender. I added Chicken Sausage to these veggies and lunch was delicious and filling!

Lunch was the same idea as breakfast really, just Chicken Sausage instead of Bacon, and topped with Smashed Avocado.



Wine – 14 SP

Dinner – 10 SP

I don’t have a good picture of this on my plate OR in the baking dish.

I made a Shepherd’s Pie, kinda sorta.

I topped it with Roasted Butternut Squash (in an effort to keep my points lower) and we both thought that diner tasted great!


These are my 2016 Goals
Make time each week to Meal Plan
Drink 100 ounces of water each day
Exercise 5 days a week
Three Meals and One Snack, Daily


Happy Saturday!!

    It was a little different, but we both liked it and using the Butternut Squash saved us some SmartPoints! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. That sorta Shepherd Pie looks mighty good.
