So, working on losing weight is opening me up to eating new foods. Foods that I’m finding I really like! I’ve had salmon twice this week (dinner then lunch – thank you Mark!). Today for lunch I made a wrap using one (1) Fit & Active Flatbread multi-grain w/flax (DEE-liciousness and doesn’t leave me bloated like bread) and I spread a half can of tuna made with miracle whip (2 tbsp) on it, added some lettuce and 1/8 cup (that took will-power!) of shredded extra sharp cheese on it and rolled it up like a burrito. I savored every bite! That’ll be on my lunch menu again for sure! Then I ate some carrots and the sweetest apple I’ve ever had.
I’m eating healthy, getting full and NOT feeling bloated in the process. 8 point lunch but next time I’ll use less miracle whip. WHY did I wait so long????
I finished lunch with a sweet dessert of pink grapefruit – no sugar was sprinkled on top. Just natures sweetness was enjoyed. My favorite part is squeezing the juice from the grapefruit rind and drinking it. Nothing goes to waste!
For dinner, we had bone in pork chops with shake n bake. You’d think this would be a high point protein but it wasn’t – only 3 SP for a 4 ounce pork chop and only 1 SP for the shake n bake. We paired this with some creamy pesto bowtie pasta (I had 1/4 cup of pasta for total 2 SP) and a vegetable mix of broccoli, carrots and cauliflower (0 SP). My entire dinner was only 6 SP. I was left with 8 points for my evening snack and boy did I use all of them!
On potato chips. Salt and vinegar potato chips to be exact. I’m not perfect! I love them.
I counted the chips to match my points left and enjoyed them a little too much. 🙂 Then, since I’d been fighting off a migraine since the previous Friday, I had another snack. Yes, I was out of my daily points at this point and I ate more.
Let me explain. I get 30 SP (smart points) per day. I also get 35 weekly SP to use if I go over or we go out to dinner. I wasn’t going to touch them, but last night I had to. I spent 2 SP on a WW chocolate caramel mini bar and it sure doesn’t taste like it’s low fat, lemme tell ya! YUM!
We shall see what tomorrows weigh in brings me. You’re really not supposed to weigh yourself every day but I do. At work on our huge scale nonetheless. It’s a certified scale so I know it’s accurate. Weighing myself every day helps me stay on track and to learn from the prior days results.
I’ll let you know how it goes!
