Sometimes, I think to keep me in the land of the living after weekends like this past, the clouds part and a little light from heaven shines down on me when I step on the scale on Tuesday mornings. By the grace of God, Lord, our Saviour Jesus Christ and the Holy Ghost, I weighed in this morning at 136.6. That's 1.4 pounds less than last week, and, an all time low.
I'm not going to think of it as a fluke, because I did work hard at eating right for the better part of the week. I'm also not going to take advantage, and think that means I can eat 120-something points every weekend and still lose weight. Either way, it was great to see a loss and really motivating towards my mini-goal of hitting 135 by my vacation (August 7).
Yesterday: 19 out of 20 points, plus a workout at the gym.
TJ's Raisin Bran aka horse oats with shriveled berries (3), skim milk (2)
Salad from Cafe Metro, with tomatoes (0), mushrooms (0), red onions (0), beets (0), grilled chicken (2), egg whites (0), kidney beans (2), and vinegar (0)
An orange (1)
Homemade mac and cheese (6) with broccoli (0)
Pita chips and hot sauce, late night (2)
I made the macaroni and cheese myself (2 servings at 6 pts each):
4 oz of whole wheat rotini pasta
3 wedges of Laughing Cow, melted in a pot with
1/2 cup skim milk
salt, pepper, and a dash of cumin
2 cups of brocoli, steamed
2 tbsp of grated cheese on top
Basically, melt/make/mix the sauce and then once the pasta's cooked and the broccoli steamed, mix it all together. Easy breezy.
