A Normal Day

March 7, 2017

It felt good to have a regular old uneventful Monday yesterday. I had a few errands to run in the morning, I had a few mindless things to get done at home in the afternoon, I took a walk with a friend and then I worked as a receptionist at a Monday evening WW meeting.

My friend Ashli lives acrossed the street and had made some soup. A LOT of soup. She sent me a text asking me if I wanted some for dinner. Since I hadn’t cooked yet, I told her that I’d be right over! Her soup was delicious!

Aside from the electricity going out for about 5 minutes last night and discovering a Tornado went through the Kansas City area at about that time, it was a relaxing and nice evening. From what I can tell, several homes were damaged, but I have not yet heard of anyone being injured. Let’s hope that is the case.

Today is a full and busy day. I am way behind on my miles, so I gotta get some of those in!

I did see a few signs of Spring on my walk!

Breakfast – 9 SP

Yesterday I made the Big Ass Waffle (3 SmartPoints) batter for breakfast. I decided that I was going to make a Waffle sandwich with Bacon and an Egg. Then I decided I didn’t want to get the Waffle Iron out. Then I decided I’d have a Pancake Sandwich. Then I decided I’d have a Pancake stack. You guys….I made a lot of decisions about breakfast yesterday!

I felt like I was having breakfast in a Diner. This was delicious!

Two Pancakes, Center Cut Bacon, Over Easy Egg, 2 tsp Pure Maple Syrup


Lunch – 10 SP

I went simple here. Tuna Salad, Plantains, Carrots, Celery with Almond Butter


Snack – 5 SP

Dinner – 6 SP

I have to guess on this. It’s full of Chicken and Veggies!


Snacks – 0 SP

Cold fruit sounded so good. I couldn’t get enough. 

I actually think I was dehydrated and just thirsty, so I ended up drinking lots of water, which made for a restless night getting up several times.

    I could not agree more. I loved that little paragraph when I saw it on Instagram. If we could just remember that ALL of the time!!

    Hope you are having a great week Michelle!

  4. Oh I love the paragraph about the scale. That is what everyone should think. The scale
    doesn’t define who we are.

    Thanks for sharing.
