Eating On The Fly

I could not get out of bed this morning. I slept so deeply (for a change) that it was hard to wake up! Since I got going so late, I didn't have time to work out although I put on my exercise clothes in anticipation of fitting it in sometime during the day. I ate a quick, but filling, breakfast of Whole Wheat Pumpkin Blueberry Pancakes (from the freezer) and 2 hard boiled egg whites for 3 POINTS...


Then, the daughters and I headed to my friend's house to help with preparations for a big luau party she's having tomorrow. I set out making 60 hamburgers then moved on to chopping, chopping and more chopping lots of fruits and veggies. Next up was grilling all the veggies and making up the tray. I put some aside and made us grilled veggie sandwiches on an Arnold Sandwich Thin with some garlic hummus that she had in her fridge which is AWESOME! The garlic flavor went perfectly with the veggies. It was a great 4 POINT sammie eaten "counter style" (aka standing up!)...

I also snacked on some Goldfish while prepping some other dishes and helping to set up. Before we knew it, it was 5 p.m.! Party prep is brutal!
I headed home and found a wonderfully healthy dinner waiting. NOT!! The husband found a way to get pizza 2 nights in a row! He was so happy :) He ordered us a plain pizza and also, a panzarotti which is like an inside out pizza. Too tired to think of making something more healthy for myself, I indulged in a slice of the pizza and a piece of the panzarotti...

I made sure to eat some broccoli, at least...


I also chomped on some of big daughter's pizza crusts. I didn't feel very satisfied after that. I definitely could have eaten more. I guess my hunger kicked in. Thankfully, there was no more pizza left or I probably would have gone to town. Instead, I went right to dessert - a No Pudge Brownie with PB2 for 3 POINTS...


Never did get in that exercise, although I was on my feet the entire day from 10:30 - 5. I will make sure to get in C&K's 10 minute strength routine though, so it's not a total wash. Then, I will flop into my bed and fall into a coma deep slumber })
Have a great night!

The Whole Wheat Pumpkin Blueberry pancakes sound good. Did you freeze your own or did you buy them?

Sounds like a busy day; I think you did great! :) Have a restful night.

I've been party planning too but can't blog about it yet. A Surprise for my sister's 50th. It's today and can't wait!

Food looks good, even the pizza! I'm sure all the standing, walking and chopping accounted for some exercise! Sounds fun!

Andrea@WellnessNotes and Bev - I would love to share my Whole Wheat Pumpkin Bleberry Pancake recipe - I'm trying to find it now!! Ugh! This is why I need to do a recipe blog, too! I have too many binders, online binders and scratchy pieces of paper with recipes scribbled on it! I'll check again and post it when I find it. I would love to know, too so I could make them again!
