I woke up a little after 11 a.m. today so I'm not eating breakfast. I know eating breakfast is good but on the weekends I sleep in so I usually don't!
I did however start my day like any other day with some decaf coffee (I don't drink caffeine):
For my coffee I use Starbucks House Blend in decaf with Truvia (two packets) to sweeten.
If you haven't tried Truvia, do it! I used to use Splenda but Truva(and Stevia) are all natural sweeteners and much better for you!
For a creamer I use Coffee Mate Sugar-Free French Vanilla. I prefer this over the Fat-Free one. Two tablespoons is one point.
Making my cup of coffee a total of: 1 point
For lunch John and I went to Subway since I have a gift card. I got a footlong Turkey since they have the any footlong $5 deal. I only ate half. So I had a 6" turkey on wheat with provolone cheese, lettuce, onion, black olives, cucumber and a little light mayo for 7 points.
We also shared some chips. The amount I ate was 2 points.
After lunch we ran some errands which wore me out since I'm still sore and recovering. We were at Costco and there was nothing I could get for a snack there! John got a churro and I had two small bites. I'm calling it 2 points.
He is making a silly face, obviously. haha.
I decided the other half of my sub was a good snack choice. So I ate it. That half had only the turkey, cheese and veggies. I took off half of the bread (a good thing to do to lower points) so it was a 3 point snack. :)
I had a snack of some turkey pepperoni and bell pepper strips (not pictured) for 2 points.
For dinner we went to Macaroni Grill. Where I met the evil and oh so delicious bread.
I would not let it defeat me! I only had a small piece which I counted for 2 points.
I had a side salad with dressing on the side to accompany my meal for 2 points.
Finally, for my meal I had the Jumbo Shrimp Spedini which is a great choice when you're eating light. Too bad I forgot to take a picture! It was 5 points and yummy. Here is a picture of my empty plate!
Dinner was great and I had a nice time with John. <3
To end the day I had some Soy Dream ice cream for 3 points which I weighed on my Weight Watchers scale. I love that thing. I highly recommend you get one!
Overall today was a success! I went five points over but I had said I was allowed to use 5 of the 35 extras on the weekend and I did.
My goal for the rest of the week is the not touch those extra 30!
Tomorrow night I am going to make "Cherry Chicken Burgers." John is scared of this but it was something I saw on Food Network and want to try to do a low point version on. :)
Points eaten: 29/24
Weekly remaining: 30/35
