Delays And Detours

School was on a two hour delay this morning. Yay! Another day to sleep in for me and the daughters. We got up around 7 and got to take our time getting ready for school. Little daughter and I even did The Shred together again. I don't know why she likes to do this; she says it's "fun". Clearly, she needs to get out more. I still feel like Jillian is kicking my butt all over the place and it's only Level 1! Is it bad that I really look forward to the parts when I get to lie on the floor???!!! But, this butt-kicking is necessary since I got on the scale this morning and only have bad news to report to my A-Teamers. I'm up .8 lbs. I knew the indiscretions from the other day were going to imbed themselves on my hips. However, my hips will not be a permanent home for these snacks! They must move off - they will be evicted, hopefully by next week :) I decided not to freak out about this gain; it's just a detour. I am back on the right road and I will stay the course!!!

After The Shred, I had a leisurely breakfast on the sofa, with little daughter reading books to me. A Banana Date Breakfast Cookie (2 POINTS) and a cut-up pear (1 POINT) was yummy and easy to eat for our cozy book reading...


When everyone had shipped out, I headed to the elliptical for a quick 25 min. workout. I'm trying my best to stick with my 45 min. a day goal for January.

Lunchtime was soon approaching and I have been obsessively thinking of hummus, so I made a fresh batch. I had some hard-boiled egg whites in the fridge and I got the bright idea to combine them with the hummus! This turned into a hummus egg salad wrap. I chopped 3 egg whites, added some chopped celery, grated carrots and mixed it together with 2 tbsp. hummus. I rolled it all up in a La Tortilla Factory Smart and Delicious Wrap with lettuce. A great combo! Could've used more hummus, but that's me - I could eat a vat of that stuff! Next time, I'll fill the egg whites with the hummus, like a hummus-deviled egg! My mom gave me that idea - thanks, Ma! With my wrap, I had a serving of Trader Joe's Sea Salt and Pepper Rice Chips and a sliced apple. A big 7 POINT lunch...

Before heading off to little daughter's dance class, I had a lovely snack of berries and yogurt for 2 POINTS...

On the way home from dance, the daughters were lamenting how they never get to eat fast food anymore. They are so deprived, aren't they? They were not interested in my dissertation of how I am saving them from future obesity and heart disease and that what I am depriving them of is bad health! Fingers were in the ears and "blah, blah. blah" was being chanted. I ended up relenting. I realized that it has been months since they have eaten that stuff and what I do want to teach them is that everything is o.k., in moderation. So, to the Wendy's drive-thru we went. Yes, they have declared me a Rock Star tonight! I decided to wait until we got home to make myself a healthful meal, however, the fries stalked me and I ended up eating quite a few. No worries though. I counted them and continued on my healthy way :) I reheated the last bit of Chicken Cacciatore from last night(only 2 oz. chicken and mainly veggies left) and put it over 2 oz. of whole wheat cappellini. So delish! FYI, 2 oz. of cappellini makes a huge amount for only 3 POINTS! Very eye appealing if you're a volume eater like me! This worth -the -wait dinner was 8 POINTS...
My grand finale was 1/2 c. Breyers Fat Free Double Churn French Chocolate Ice Cream topped with a half serving of very vanilla mini meringues (2 POINTS)...

Whoa, can't believe tomorrow is Friday! Hope everyone had a great day!

Don't freak out about the weight. It's not even a whole pound. Next week will be better!! :)

And I think Jillian could kick about anyone's butt. I'd never be able to keep up with her in a million years. So cute that your little daughter thinks it's fun!

The ice cream looks DELISH...(I wish we had better options here. ITS ONLY CANADA for crying out loud...lol).

As far as the pronunciation of your name, my friend is also "ma-reee-sa" it drives her INSANE when ppl mispronounce it. We'll have to start a public awareness campaign...maybe get tshirts made? haha
