My Apologies

My apologies for this lackluster post. I am feeling a bit under the weather; I think I'm coming down with a cold, but I'm fighting it's onset hard with mega Vitamin C, B-12, neti pot and basically lying around doing nothing. Dust and dishes are piling up, but I'm just not in the mood to do anything about it! Hopefully, tomorrow I'll be A-O.k. So, here's a quick synopsis of what I ate today...



Breakfast was a little something different: 1/2 c. fat free ricotta cheese with a bit of Splenda mixed in and topped with 3 oz. sliced strawberries and a tbsp. homemade cinnamon granola...







For the record, this kind of breakfast, although packed with 12 g. protein, does not hold me over very long. I was pacing around "waiting" for lunchtime to roll around. Isn't that ridiculous? It's like, if you're hungry just eat already! But, nooooooo. I didn't want to spend any extra POINTS before their time! Note to self : get a new strategy - this does not work! (read on - you will see why). So, finally I decided it was time to eat lunch and I wanted to try these Spinach, Fontina and Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausages...



Yes, I said FONTINA !!!! I never met a cheese I didn't like, but Fontina is my number one favorite! One of these sausages is 140 cal. and 8 gr. fat which comes to 3 POINTS. They are fully cooked and just need a little pan fry for about 12 min. I did this in a dry nonstick skillet which worked great. But, 12 minutes seemed like an eternity, so I began to snack on the last bit of homemade hummus and a few carrots...


I couldn't really come up with a creative condiment for the sausage, so I decided to let it stand alone on a light hot dog bun. Heck, it's got Fontina; what else could it possibly need??!! To go alongside, I had 1 c. Trader Joe's Creamy Tomato Soup with a few New York Style 96% fat free mini bagel chips...



So, here's where my "note to self" comes in. This lunch, although filling, came and went too fast. I powered it all down without really "tasting" everything. Therefore, I was not full "mentally". I started digging into all kinds of snacks such as, baked potato chips, cheese, some pieces of chocolate, crackers, etc. I kept switching from salty to sweet, sweet to salty. Ugh! Here's where the lesson learned comes in: if I had just eaten earlier, when I was hungry, regardless of the "time", I might have headed this all off. I may not have been in that mode of "urgency to eat" and could have been able to eat more mindfully. Lessons, lessons, lessons. Everyday is an opportunity to know myself better and help manage these bad eating habits. I'm not thrilled about wasting all those POINTS on mindless eating, but I'm not gonna beat myself up as I usually do. Time to move on...

NEXT!


Yes, my next meal was back on track. Dinner was Turkey Meatloaf and roasted sweet potatoes. You may be thinking what happened to pizza night - it IS Friday night, right???? Yeah, the husband and daughters were thinking that, too. But hey, sometimes you just gotta mess with them, you know???!!!! Along with the meatloaf and sweet potatoes, I had a Sundried Tomato and Garlic Roll. A healthy 7 POINT dinner...



No dessert tonight. You KNOW I must be sick. Gonna cozy up in bed and dream of wellness. Happy Friday =0)

Your dinner looks YUMMY!!!! So does the rest of your food, but mmmmm...mmmm... something about that meatloaf, sweet potato, scone combo looks delicious.

Hope you feel better soon. Maybe try drinking some extra cups of green/echinacea tea to ward off the cold. I've been sick since last week, so I just started drinking tea and I think it's helped.

Take care :)
