Run, Eat, Read

Hi Everyone! I'm going to try to make this post quick, as I am deeply into reading Twilight and can't put it down! I got this for big daughter for Christmas. She has already seen the movie, but hasn't had a chance to start the book. I decided to read it to "check it out" and see what all the hubub was about and now I know!!!! It is very enticing, dark, but romantic at the same time! It's neat because I get to a certain part and then ask big daughter about it and she tells me what happened in the movie. We're sorta having our own book club! Fun ! Okay, so let's get with the food...



This morning, I headed to the basement for my "5k Saturday" treadmill run. I think I will definitely try and keep this routine. I was hurting a little from my outdoor run yesterday. It affected me differently than the treadmill; I guess the impact from the asphalt is a little rougher. Anyway, I powered through which felt good afterward. For breakfast, I made the same egg sammie as yesterday. I was actually salivating when I was on the treadmill, thinking of this breakfast! It is a very yummy 3 POINTer...







For lunch, I morphed the Crispy Buffalo Chicken Tenders leftover from the other night into a yummy wrap. I reheated the chicken in the toaster oven to recrisp/reheat them and placed them in a La Tortilla Factory Smart and Delicious Tortilla with some lettuce, shredded carrots, chopped celery and 1 tbsp. Marie's Light Blue Cheese Dressing. Wow, this was amazing! Just went with a side of Kettle Baked Potato Chips for a terrific 7 POINT lunch...




A little after lunch, I made some Coffee Cocoa...


Before going to big daughter's basketball game, I had a snack of 3/4 c. Puffins, 1/4 c. high fiber cereal, 3 strawberries and 1 c. Soy Slender...



After the basketball game, we came straight home and I got started on dinner. I was making Shrimp Scampi over Linguine for myself and just straight-up spaghetti with marinara sauce for the husband and daughters who would not touch shrimp with a ten foot pole. Oh, the horror! It was terrific, they don't know what they are missing :) I made a side of sauteed spinach with garlic. This was a nice 8 POINT dinner...


Unfortunately, during the dinner making process, I started noshing on some crackers, pretzel rod and hummus. I shut it down pretty quickly, though. However, I didn't think until after I had already done the deed, that I should have employed my "gum trick" from last night! DUH! That would have worked. I did recognize while I was noshing that I wasn't hungry, just feeling a little anxious(those games do that to me!); so maybe next time I'll be able to talk myself out of what I am recognizing!!!


I had some ice cream for dessert tonight. I went with some Edy's Slow Churned Peanut Butter Cup ice cream; this is a light ice cream - 130 cal. and 8 gr. fat. Very good! But, honestly, I like the fat free just as much if not better and it's less POINTS. I also had a pumpkin choco-chip cookie from the freezer...

(sorry for this bad pic)

Well, some noshing continued later with the daughters' Goldfish Crackers, nuts and a couple Girl Scout Cookies. I feel o.k. about it because I have the Weekly Allowance Points to use, but I wish I wouldn't eat just to eat. It's over now and I'm glad it didn't turn into something more. Okay, I already went on longer than I told you I would!!!


Into the Twilight...

Looks like you had good eating plans , except for all the gnashing. I, too, am a snacker. If there is something around to eat, I eat it. Sometimes its even something I don't even like! I am a mindless eater. Thats why I'm in the shape I'm in.

GO TEAM ANGIE!!

I got hooked on the Twilight book too. And at the end in mine, the author gives you a little snippet of the next book. Now I've GOT to read it too!

Foods look yummy!
