Eat, Repeat

Today, I tried to recreate the eating day I had yesterday. Since all went well, I repeated some of those meals today. I started off with some gardening early this morning, then came in for another cereal bowl: 3/4 c. TJ's High Fiber O's, 1/2 c. unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze and 2 chopped apricots for 3 POINTS...



A little later, I made up a strawberry crackshake for 1 POINT...

I spent the rest of the morning prepping for our bbq tomorrow, then stopped to make another delish tofu sammie. I used the bbq baked tofu for this one on 2 slices of TJ's spelt bread with lettuce, tomato and a squirt of Kraft Light Three Cheese Ranch. So good! It almost tasted like a BLT but it was a BTLT (bbq tofu lettuce tomato) - heheh! Riding alongside again, some carrots and 3 apriums. Love this 5 POINT lunch...

More prepping for the party, then came snack time. I had to keep reminding myself the definition of "snack" - small portion of food! I went with a fruit and nut bite for 1 POINT...



but, still wanted something more, so I had a lite string cheese (1 POINT)...


I recognized that I wasn't hungry, but I still felt like eating more. I tried to talk myself out of it. It worked for a while, then I succumbed to some Cheez-its and about 10 M&M's. Not so bad, I'm guessing about 5 POINTS.
Before dinner, I decided to get in a run. My hip soreness is getting better with just doing the walking this past week, so I thought I could try a run again. I went to the trail and started to run, but it was so difficult today! Not sure if it was the weather (hot and humid) or that I took that break. I didn't push it, though. I did a mix of walk/run for 35 min. and that seemed good enough for today.
I picked up pizza on the way home for the husband, daughters and our nephews that were visiting. I stayed away from that and made myself some TJ's Chicken Cilantro Mini Wontons with a side of sweet fresh pineapple for 4 POINTS...

I ended the night with a mango and cream bar for 1 POINT...

I'm ready to relax a little tonight and get a good night's rest for the bbq tomorrow. I'm looking forward to some yummy eats at the bbq. I'll be back to show you tomorrow night, if it doesn't get too late. If so, I'll be back Mon. morning for a recap! Hope you're having a fun weekend :]

Ugggg, it was hot and humid here, too. Last time I looked at the temp., it said 91. I betcha anything the humidity matched the temp! lol We ended up going to the Y to run on one of the indoor tracks. Much, much nicer. Especially considering I had already been outside most of the day. I was done with the heat.

I'm glad your hip is feeling better! My foot got a little tweaked back when I was shredding all the time. It took a couple of months for that to stop hurting.

wow, the mini wontons look really delicious. I'll be on the lookout for those when I visit TJ's again.
have fun at the BBQ tomorrow!

Marisa you always have the yummiest things. I wish we had a Trader Joe's here. :(

Love the crack shake. And thanks so much for the tofu tips. I'm going to try some. :)

I'm telling you it's difficult to run when it's hot and humid. It seems to make it twice as hard.

Have fun at the BBQ tomorrow.

The Cilantro Mini Wontons sound good... And the mango and cream bar! I sometimes think reading food-related blogs after dinner isn't such a great idea! :) Have a great day tomorrow, and I can't wait to hear all about it!

Stacey said...

Yummy! Can you come over to my house and prepare all my snacks too! :)

That fruit and nut bite looked so delicious! And the smoothie!
