Homebound- Day 2

Little daughter is still sick, so another day in the house. One would think I would get a myriad of things done around here, but on these sick days, I tend to sit with the sickie all day and not do much of anything! House is still a mess, clothes unlaundered, food barely made. I have had zip in the creativity dept. lately with my food. I really need to get some planning done with some new recipes on the menu to spice things up around here! I gotta get a fire goin under this butt! So, onto my boring food today...



Breakfast was whole wheat pumpkin blueberry pancakes that I had in the freezer with a side of 1/2 Weight Watchers Strawberry Yogurt (split with little d -why do they have to eat MY stuff!!) topped with a few slices of banana for 3 POINTS...





After breakfast, I forced myself to do Level 3 Shred. Hanging around the house has made me very lazy, but I knew this was the only exercise I was going to do today, so I did my best "bad-ass" workout. Jillian was happy; she told me so. She says that at the end; it's way after the part when she tells you she wants you to feel like you're gonna die ;) Only 4 days left, Shredders!!!



For lunch, I wanted a giant shaker of salt with shavings of chocolate on the side. I didn't think that would look very nice on the plate, so I opted for a Chicken BLT using a leftover thin sliced chicken breast (1 1/2 oz.) on an Arnold Sandwich Thin, topped with 2 slices of center cut bacon, lettuce, tomato and a tiny squirt of Kraft Light Three Cheese Ranch. On the side, I had a serving of Baked Cheddar and Sour Cream Lays Chips and a sliced apple for health's sake. A salty-licious 7 POINT lunch...



Just like yesterday, more chips followed along with some chocolates all while reading my new book that I got at the library, Intuitive Eating ! Seems I need more work in this area ;) So, here's a positive- during this eatfest of salt and sweet, I downed a TON of water! That's good, right?? Definitely got in all my WATER today! The bloat has set in and I am fairly certain that I have gained 40 lbs. today :0



Dinner was quick and easy. The daughters wanted breakfast for dinner - cool! I went with the same for myself. I made an egg sammie made with egg whites, baby spinach and a slice of 2 % cheese on a Weight Watchers Petite Bagel along with a side of carrots and grapes. An easy, healthy, back on track 4 POINT dinner...



I'm just gonna keep trying. Keep reeling it in everytime I go off the wagon. There is no other choice; just keep on keepin on. Eventually, it will click and I'll be on a roll again. Right???? Right!!!


And brownies are on the wagon!! At least these guys are. They do not cause "pudge" - the box says so! Best of all, they are only 2 POINTS. I went with a naked one tonight...



Okay, tomorrow is a new day and it will be another homebound day with little daughter. I have pretty much eaten every salty and sweet snack in the house, so I think I should be pretty good tomorrow!!LOL! I plan on making a new and exciting dinner that no one will eat except me because it will be healthy and POINT friendly and I will spend the day dancing around the house singing, "what have you done today, to make you feeeeeel proud". It's gonna be a great day =0)

Haha. That is the biggest loser song right? :) Your lunch stands out and looks really great!! Have fun tomorrow. Sorry your daughter is sick. :(

Sharon said...

Hope your daughter feels better soon. Love how dinner turned out! =D

Hope your little one gets feeling better! I'm the same way when Johnny's out of sorts ... all either of us really cares about doing is cuddling and watching silly cartoons (he's recently become a BIG Tom & Jerry fan). In fact today was the first day in about a week that he was really active again which meant I got to do TONS of laundry and random clean-up!

Sick kiddos make it really hard to maintain a level o normalcy in every house it seems. I am very lucky in the fact that my son only gets sick about once every 18 months ,but when it happens life becomes a train wreck ! Congratulations on easing yourself back on plan ! Some derailing experiences seep harder to recover from than others.

Juliet - yep, the BL theme song! I will sing it all day to inspire me and annoy my family :)

Sharon - thanks; she's on the mend!

Karen - glad you got to catch up! I'm thinkin tomorrow's the day for me!

TheIncredibleShrinkingFamily - wow, what an awesome immune system your son has!! Must be all that healthy and delicious food you make!!

Kari said...

oh you make me laugh. loved the endind to that post. I think we should all carry that theme song with us and when we are feeling tempted just hit play. maybe it would make us second guess our decision to eat crap. lol. sorry the daughter still isn't feel good. hope she gets better soon! um 4 days left. yikes. I totally bombed the challenge this month but I'm gonna do my best to get it in the remaining days. Curious - did you make those pancakes? do you have the recipe?

Thanks for stopping by the blog. I am doing pretty good with the Shred Challenge. I will be taking my measurements at the end of the week to see if I made any progress towards my goals. I hope your little one feels better soon.
