A Full Day at Home

April 21, 2017

I work an early WW meeting on Thursday as a receptionist and then I am typically home by 9:00 am. Yesterday Mike was gone all day (he works mostly from home) and had plans for a golf game late in the day. I had the house to myself all day so you know I made a big “to do list” and attacked it. 

A friend stopped by as I was thinking about breakfast and was at my house until after noon, so breakfast was lunch. We had a great chat, so i didn’t mind at all, I was just starving!

I spent the rest of the afternoon planning my Ebay sale. I’ve never done that before but I have a few things that I think I should put on Ebay rather than in a garage sale. One thing led to another and I ended up melting the last of the wax in a gazillion candles and washing out the jars to use for something clever. I don’t know what yet…..

Pinterest, I might be looking at you today. The house smelled amazing.


Then I cleaned out the mason jars that I got as a gift with herbs in them last year for Mother’s Day. I have an idea for a center piece for these. Hobby Lobby? I might be visiting you today.


did NOT take any long walks yesterday, but I do think that walking is one of the best things for Plantar Fasciitis and that driving and sitting and sleeping are the absolute WORST things for it.

I am having fun watching my FitPoints rack up on my WW app!


Yesterday’s eats…

Lunch – 6 SP

I had a busy morning and I didn’t have anything to eat until 12:30. I was a tad irritated with myself for poor planning and eating so late, but on the other hand I was thinking about all of the points I had for a snack later or a big dinner!

Big Ass Waffle topped with Warm Blueberries and 1 T. of my new Trader Joe’s Nut  Butter.

For the blueberries, I put one cup of frozen wild blueberries in a bowl and microwave for about 2 minutes. That’s it. Just Blueberries. So good!


Snack – 2 SP

1 Whole Wheat Low Carb Tortilla with Turkey


Snack – 2 SP

10 of these Roasted Plantains from Trader Joe’s.


Dinner – 15 SP

Portabella Mushroom Cheeseburger and a pile of (150g) Sweet Potato Fries!

I sprayed the Mushroom Caps with Olive Oil and sprinkled with Sea Salt. Bake at 425 for 20 minutes. Thanks for this idea Becky!

I sliced a Sweet Potato thin, laid on Parchment paper, sprayed both sides with cooking spray and season salt and baked those along with the mushroom caps.

I grilled a 6 ounce 90%/10% Beef burger outside while the oven did it’s thing inside. I topped that with one slice of Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar.

Dinner was just as good as I hoped that it would be.

    I think I just like to organize stuff. LOL. You ‘ve probably realized that by now. I’m glad I motivate you! You’ll have to tell me what you did!

    Enjoy your weekend!

    Thank you for the tip Kathryn! That sounds so easy!!

    Have a great weekend!

  3. It’s supposed to rain all day tomorrow so after I come home from my WW meeting I hope to get some things done in my apartment–you always motivate me.

  4. Julie, a tip for you on getting rid of the last bit of candle wax. Heat up you hot tap water as hot as it will go & add some to cover the wax. Let sit just a few seconds then slide a spoon in under one side of the candle. It will pop right out!! So easy & quick…
