I didn’t post last night, I had to catch up on the Bachelorette. Really people? Bentley is coming back next week? What the????
Anyway…. I’ve been trying to be a little more careful this week with my eating choices and trying to not eat as much (man, I tell you, I eat A LOT). I weighed in this morning and I’m making some slow progress towards losing those 7 pesky pounds. I think really refocusing and writing out all my healthy, happy weight goals helped (even though it made me nervous to write it down for the world to see). I don’t really want to focus on a number on the scale though- it’s more about how I feel. Isn’t it great how it just takes a few days of healthy eating to start feeling better? Love that. Now, if I can just keep it going (and get some more sleep).
So…… a little recap of the day….
Note- that Vitatop has been in my freezer for almost a year. Do things go bad in the freezer? Let’s hope not.
Vitalicious just recently posted a recipe for strawberry shortcake using a cornbread Vitatop, so I had to try something like it for breakfast. I heated some strawberries on the stove with a Splenda packet and some cinnamon and put them on top of the Vitatop. Yum,yum, yum.
Well, of course I had to add a little of that (and have my favorite morning mocha to go with this).
Look what the boys got.
You can’t even tell that banana bread bake had been frozen. He he!
Love the trail mix. (The cereal- well, it was okay. Not my favorite.) The boys had their typical smoothie- spinach, frozen broccoli cubes, strawberries, Kefir and apple juice.
I had a turkey spinach wrap later in the afternoon also (and a Coke Zero). I was busy working though so I didn’t take a picture.
Dinner was on my own late at night because I taught classes until 7:30. On the menu: STUFT Tomato and Red Pepper soup with cheese sandwiches in my favorite sandwich maker. A Flatout sandwich with Laughing Cow light blue cheese wedge and fat free cheddar and a whole grain bread sandwich with light provolone, Mini Babybel light, and a Laughing Cow Light cheese wedge.
And Skinny Cow sandwiches- I am LOVING you these days!
I also love these from Trader Joe’s. They’re a little smaller though. The Skinny Cow sandwiches mean business and could crush these little guys, but I still love them anyway.
In honor of my healthy, happy weight challenge, I’m not going to make any more frozen goodies to add to my bag of dessert treats (they’re just too tempting for me- ugh). I’m going to try to stick to some easy low fat desserts (overdoing it on sweets is my downfall).
My ultimate favorite has to be the Skinny Cow cones. Please tell me you’ve had them. Mmmm…… I haven’t bought them forever though because I’ve been buying Skinny Cow sandwiches at Costco (they’re cheaper).
Oh, and I’m working on a post all about Kitty right now. I originally had it combined with this one, but it got too long and I feel like Kitty deserves his own post. Stay tuned…….
But, for now….. what’s your favorite light dessert treat? Or what are some things out there I need to try?
