No Sleep For The Weary

Last night was another rough night, sleep-wise. Little daughter has sleep issues and was up from 1: 30 a.m. til 4:30 a.m. Ugh! The husband and I were zombies today. I actually went back to bed after sending the daughters off to school - I have NEVER done that before, even if I've been sick. This sleeplessness is getting to me, BIG TIME. But no matter how crappy I felt today, I was determined to not let the stress get to me in an eating way!

I didn't start my day off with exercise. I just couldn't muster up the energy. I did make myself breakfast, though. I had a bacon, egg and cheese english muffin sandwich using 1 egg white, a slice of 2% cheese, a slice of center cut bacon and a Thomas' 100 calorie english muffin. I had a 1/2 c. of unsweetened applesauce on the side...


Lunch was one of these new finds...


A yummy spinach souffle that is only 2 POINTS! Just pop it in the micro; it's delish. Along with that, I had an Arnold Sandwich Thin cut up with 2 tbsp. hummus for dipping and a sliced apple...

Bold After lunch, I got myself moving and did a little grocery shopping. I picked up a bunch of Weight Watchers Yogurts on sale. I love that they are only 1 POINT. I had the berries and cream flavor and an oatmeal raisin mini bar for a sweet 2 POINT snack...


Dinner was tacos for the family. I went a little different route; bean and cheese quesadilla. I spread a La Tortilla Factory Tortilla with 1/2 c. fat free refried beans and sprinkled with 1 oz. Cabot 75% Reduced Fat Cheddar. I folded it in half and pan-fried it in cooking spray until everything was all warm and melty. I topped it with some salsa and a tbsp. of guacamole. Mmmm! I had a cup of lentil soup along with it. What a filling 6 POINT dinner...


I found another Weight Watchers product at the grocery store today that I couldn't resist - peanut butter cookies! I had one for dessert topped with 1 tsp. of Nutella (chocolate hazelnut spread )which is the most amazing stuff in the world! I have to hide this in my kitchen cabinets so that I "forget" that it's there or else! The cabinets were getting a little bare, so it was peaking out at me :) I remained in control, thankfully!



This delicious 2 POINT treat was so yummy. It reminded me of a peanut butter blossom cookie (you know, the peanut butter cookie with the hershey's kiss on top)...



Well, I am going to SLEEP now and hopefully, I get to STAY that way until morning! Nighty nite =)
