Homebound

I was homebound today with little daughter; she is sick and I'm not feeling so peachy myself. I'm kinda achy and tired. Not sure if I'm fighting something off or what. Plus, TOM showed up today, too. Hate that guy! But, I guess that explains my need for the intervenous chocolate hook-up this past weekend ;)



Little daughter and I lounged around all morning. We finally got around to eating breakfast around 10:30. I went with a Weight Watchers Pita stuffed with 3 scrambled egg whites, a slice of 2 % cheese and a slice of center cut bacon. Yummy 3 POINTS....







After breakfast, I made sure to get in 30 minutes on the elliptical and a Level 3 Shred. Brutal, but necessary! Only 5 days left, Shredders!!!!


For lunch, I decided to try these chicken breast nuggets that I picked up at Target the other day...



These nuggets were okay. The nutritionals were impressive; a 4 piece serving is 120 cal., 2 gr. fat (0 g.sat/trans fat). What I liked about them were that they were actual pieces of chicken breast instead of the "chopped and formed" variety. The breading was crisp, however, I thought the flavor was a bit on the bland side. I also wondered if the nutritionals were accurate since the chicken pieces were different sizes. So, to be "exact", I weighed them and they came to more cals. in doing that. A serving is 4 pieces (84 gr.), but my 4 pieces came to more than that. I know it's just playing with a few calories, so I upped my count another POINT. Still, 6 nuggets for 5 POINTS isn't too bad! I think these might be good tossed in some buffalo wing sauce, so I'll try that next time. Today, I just ate them with a tbsp. Kraft Light Three Cheese Ranch, some carrots and a serving of Baked Cheddar and Sour Cream Lays. A fun 8 POINT lunch...



More lounging went on this afternoon, along with some munching. Alternating salty and sweet, sweet and salty. Ugh, TOM is a jerk!

I cut it off though because deep inside, I really don't want to be doing this munching. I want to be ON PROGRAM, on a roll, keeping it going, headin to the finish line and all that. So, dinner was nice and healthy: sauteed thin-sliced chicken breast(4 0z.) topped with fresh, homemade salsa and a side of leftover roasted sweet potatoes. A great, "who needs chocolate" dinner for 8 POINTS...



Then, I made brownies. I know, I can't help myself! Thankfully, I had the No Pudge Fat Free Brownie Mix. A box makes 12 servings at 120 cal., 0 gr. fat and 1 gr. fiber which comes to 2 POINTS per brownie. That is, if you can eat PER. I tried to help myself in this area by making the brownies in a 12 cup muffin tin instead of a regular 8x8 pan cuz you KNOW more goes in the mouth during the "cutting" process! This worked out great; instant portion control! These brownies are very good, thick and fudgy. I was craving reese's peanut butter cups so I decided to top the brownie with some PB2. A very rich, craving crusher for 3 POINTS...



Well, I'm a little bummed that I wasn't completely back on track today. Angie let me know that I made the biggest loser of the week for this past week and now I'm letting my team down this week with this craziness. I keep doing this volley thing where I follow through with my plan one week , then sabotage myself for the next week. Back and forth. I just want to get a few good weeks under my belt to drive me to my end goal! Frustrating, but I'm never giving up. I know I'll get there!!!!!


Don't think little daughter is ready to go back to school tomorrow, so I'll be homebound again. Where should I hide the brownies??????

TOM is such a brutal factor in weight loss! The things that the hormone shift makes us compulsively eat is definitely a biological marvel , isn't it ?

Eggs in pitas- I have never thought of that one and you have inspired me to give it a whirl next week. It screams mobile breakfast to me !

Your dinner looks yummy!

Sarah said...

I think you did great and you still got the exercise in, good job! Hide the brownies in the freezer. And tell TOM to leave soon, lol.

Girl we ALL go through it ME INCLUDED! It's pissing me off quite frankly (not you, me).

I sent you some interview questions and maybe stepping up as the rock star you truly are, regardless of a few indiscretions, will help you get your head back in the game.

We ALL fall of track, it's inevitable, getting back on is the important part!

Thanks for the review on that brownie mix cause I almost bought it a bunch of times thinking it would taste like dung ;-P

i love those brownies! i used to never be able to eat one serving myself. i would always make a pan and basically eat it in 4 servings, if i was lucky!! i have to let you in on a big secret...on the side of the box, they have SINGLE SERVING microwave instructions!!! these are genius i swear. it makes a nice little bowl or mug of cake, and then since I am only eating one serving, i don't feel bad adding some cool whip or berries or sugar free chocolate syrup :)
