Yay for Saturday! :) I had a nice one. It was nothing special, and actually I was kinda stressed all day, got my feelings hurt this morning, started, and got disappointed. But it ended good with food and since I have weight issues I consider THAT a good day! Haha
Okay, on to seriousness.... I took a picture of breakfast after I ate a few bites, but then I forgot my camera at home and missed my other food today. So instead of posting all my food pics, I will just kinda tell you about it and then show you the one pic that's made today a good day.
For breakfast I had a Jimmy Dean D'Lights breakfast sandwich. They're pretty good. I had a $3 off coupon for them. I wouldn't pay full price, just because, but I would def buy them again if I caught them on a good sale. I ate a banana with it and drank FF hot cocoa.
I didn't eat again until lunch, which was technically our big meal for the day. We went to The Perfect Pig. I will save you the details. I went in deciding I was going to enjoy the food today and not worry myself sick over numbers. I ended up eating some of my food and giving other parts of it away. But then I took a bite of this and that from the kids. I tried to estimate high to be on the safe side. This estimate does not include any kind of dessert, just country cooking.
About 6 hours later, we were STILL out and about running errands and grocery shopping! We didn't want to spend money eating out again. Everyone grabbed a candy bar. The kids were thrilled. They just about NEVER get their own candy bar. They always have to split 2 bars between the 4 of them. LOL. I guess we are mean??? I just think that if *I*, an adult, eat an entire candy bar, a kid surely just needs half of one. I love these babies, and I don't want them dealing with the battle of the bulge later in life. I wish I loved me as much as I love them and look out for them! :-/ Anyway, at the register my eyes fell on a Heath bar. All Walmart had were King Size ones. I haven't had a Heath bar in years... but suddenly, I needed one. Reckon that had to do with TOM? But thankfully I didn't allow myself to buy the King Size bar. Instead, I wanted until I got to Kroger. There was not a single Heath bar of any kind at Kroger! I started to just pick something else, but I knew that I wouldn't mentally accept a substitute and would still keep eating until I had a Heath bar. Lol, sad but true! So the husband took me to Dollar General. Sold out of every Heath bar in the store. Good grief! Went to the last option - the gas station by the house. Whoopee - Heath Bar jackpot! Got me one.
I really enjoyed that Heath bar. I'm glad it was good after all the trouble it caused me. Hehe
So I came home and decided to try out my new knee braces and pick which one I wanted. I bought two kinds and figured I would take one back once I was able to try them on at home and see which one was better for my knee issue.
Neither one fit. :( They both said one size fits all. They were both fully un-velcro-able. But then the stupid thing wouldn't stretch around my big thigh!!! It would re-velcro but just barely. I knew it would never hold. And it was squishing my fat. Ugh. That was very disheartening! I told my husband, "Great! I'm too fat for help! I'll just keep dislocating my knee until they have to amputate my leg. I was looking forward to having a brace so I would feel brave enough to start doing my walking videos again! At this point, I can't even walk normally around my own house without my knee slipping, let alone walk for exercise!" I was majorly bummed out.
So then I decided to cook. Go figure. Lol
Saw this on Gina's site this week: Spaghetti boats!!! Since I recently discovered I like spaghetti squash, I knew I had to try it. So at nearly 10:30 pm tonight, I had 1/2 a spaghetti squash with 1/2 cup Ragu, 3 oz Tyson grilled and ready chicken, 28 grams Italian cheese, and a piece of garlic cheese toast.
In a nutshell: I ate 58 points+ today, so I dipped well into my weekly points allowance. That's okay. I went ahead and weighed in this morning and will keep my weigh-ins on Saturday, but I decided to just keep my week going through Tuesday night since I started on Wednesday. I think it's 14 weekly points I have left now. I really enjoyed the food I had today, and I will be carefully tracking the rest of the week to make sure I stay within my points range until things reset on Wednesday. I got in only 60 oz of water today but plenty of other liquids, too. I never do as good on water on Saturdays. It's just such a busy day for our family. I'll report back tomorrow night!
