I went way over my daily Points yesterday. Yikes!!!
I’ll show you my journal and then tell you where I could’ve done better. Here goes!
Breakfast – Oatmeal=Perfect on Cold Days!
I’ve eaten so many egg beaters over the past year the thought of them makes me nauseas. So, I’ve gone back to eating oatmeal in the morning. I LOVE oatmeal on a cold, winter morning!
You aren’t seeing things. That’s right. I put a dollop of Cool Whip on my oatmeal. It’s soooo good! The coolness with the warm of the oatmeal is IRRESISTIBLE!
Lunch – Too Many Points!
I know 14 points for lunch is way to much. I need to work on getting that down. I am currently obsessed with these panini’s from SkinnyTaste.com. However, I substituted the chicken for turkey and the arugula for spinach. I don’t have a Panini maker, so I make these in my Foreman Grill. Works just the same!
I LOVE tomato soup! Especially in the winter time. BUT, I need to find a lower point alternative than the Progresso Creamy Tomato Basil. It’s all we had left in the cupboard, so if you have any suggestions please let me know!
Dinner – Homemade Thai Goodness!
I made another new recipe from Skinnytaste.com, Thai Green Curry Coconut Shrimp with Basil. I served this over a cup of Jasmine Thai rice. OMG this was delish! Definitely a keeper!
We had a side of Egg Drop Soup that was perfect with the 20 degree night we had in Virginia Beach! Burrrr!
Went Crazy on the Snacks!
I don’t know what was wrong with me yesterday but I couldn’t stop snacking after dinner! I guess it was force of habit….or the cold weather and staying bundled up on the couch watching TV. Who knows! I’m just glad I still tracked it.
If you slip up, there’s no reason to wait until tomorrow to start fresh. I heard a quote somewhere that said if you got a flat tire, you wouldn’t slash the other 3. So freakin’ true! Think of that next time you want to keep binging!
Until next time
