Hot Stuff

The sun is shining, but brrrrrrr, what a cold day out there. Definitely calls for some nice hot food today. Unfortunately, I couldn't start with a hot breakfast since I was not eating before weigh -in this morning, which was.......not so hot! Well, I shouldn't say that. It was not my best work, but it was still a loss - .4 lbs. Hey, I'll take it! My new attitude is to be happy for a loss, no matter how small because it all adds up eventually, right?? So, since I don't eat before weigh-in, I brought along to the meeting a BlueBran Vitatop ( I love that these are only 1 POINT!) and a bottle of water...



I came home for lunch and heated up a bowl of this soup...


Along with that another hot food...

I LOVE hot dogs!! I haven't had one in so long. I know they are not the healthiest thing on the planet, but having one every once in a while can't be too bad! Especially when there is a low POINT option like these Dietz and Watson Gourmet Lite Beef Franks. They are only 60 cal. and 1.5 gr. fat which comes to 1 POINT. They taste great! I had this on a light hot dog bun (also 1 POINT) with some mustard and a little dill relish. I decided to pass on the chips today (can you believe it?) and went with a sliced apple, instead. A nice hot lunch for only 4 POINTS...


I'm into my day for only 5 POINTS so far and I feel pretty satisfied. Guess you have those days. Wish I had them MORE OFTEN!! Anyway, I have a good amount of POINTS slated for a nice sized snack or dessert. Yay, maybe brownies........... ;)

I am SO there with you about the hot dogs. *grins* One of my favorite lunches is a turkey hot dog. :)

Congrats on the loss. Any loss is better than a gain in my opinion!!
