Breakfast was 2 fried eggs in 1/2 Tbsp of coconut oil. I also had 2 small biscuits that are 1 points+ each. I now know that I would rather have had buttered toast. I drank black coffee. I forgot about fruit, so I hopped up and washed some raspberries after I took the pic and took a separate pic for the berries.
Lunch today was really junky. Childhood memories, actually. 242 grams canned ravioli topped with 28 grams RF cheddar. On the side, I had 1 slice of Sara Lee Delightful bread, 16 grams of peanut butter, and then I ended up slicing the banana on top.
Believe it or not, I changed things up and only had ONE Dove.
A bit after lunch, I left the kids with hubby to do school since he was off again today. I went on to the gym to swim alone. And I was TOTALLY alone. Seriously. I can't get over the fact that we almost always have the pool totally to ourselves! So I swam in the indoor pool from 2:30 until 3:45. I stayed busy with lots of jogging, leg exercises, kicking, waist twisting, arm exercises, swimming, and treading water. I'm only going to give myself 1 AP. I probably deserve at least 2, but since I always have to guess I just don't know. I mean, it's not like I break a sweat in the pool. When I left, I was still completely alone. I showered, dressed, fixed my hair. Before leaving, I peeked in the pool room again. Still not a soul there! The main area of the gym, however, was becoming VERY crowded since it was now 4:30. I had to walk through there to leave. I know for sure now when NOT to go. Anyway, this was super relaxing. I didn't have to count how many seconds anyone could stay under water, watch flips, be the judge in swim races, get splashed repeatedly in the face, or any of that stuff! LOL
I went to a few stores after swimming to look for midde daughter's birthday gifts. She will be 10 on Monday! So unreal! I was able to get $27 in gifts for only $13 after a coupon I had. Yayyy. Then I went to Kmart. Our store here is closing, so everything is on sale. I got two new pans. I was very frustrated this morning when frying eggs. Everything always sticks now, whether I use cooking oils or not. So I got a stainless steel 12" skillet and a 7" Green Life ceramic skillet. I dunno. I hope they turn out to be good! So sick of throwing money away on skillets!
Supper was supposed to be Shake and Bake pork chops. Since I was gone, though, I called and asked hubby if he would grill the pork chops instead. That way, he could go ahead and grill the hot dogs that will be for lunch on Thursday. He agreed. I got my oldest daughter on the phone and had her and her sister work on making the boxed scalloped potatoes. When I got home, I just steamed the broccoli and supper was done. The pork chops were delicious! Mine was 3 oz, but I counted an extra point since he brushed it once with bbq sauce. I didn't use cheese on top of my broccoli. That is actually Nutritional Yeast. It is something I have still on hand from Trim Healthy Mama. It's 0 points+ but kinda cheesy flavored and good for you.
I did NOT have another chocolate. Can you even believe it?
Our whole family loaded up to go to Disabled Man's house after supper. I ran in Walmart with my son to get a couple things DM needed. While we were standing way out in the middle of Walmart, the smell of that stupid Auntie Anne's pretzel shop came wafting through. My son, who is quite comical, stopped dead in his tracks, stiffened his shoulders, took a gasping, loud breath and said, "That smells like a sample!" ROFL. Seriously??? Can you believe that! So I bought ONE salty pretzel for us to HALF. Yep, I only ate half. Yay me! I bought a cup of the cinnamon sugar bites to take to my daughters who were with their dad at DMs house. I didn't even taste one of those. I can skip the sugar, but give me the salt!
We completely rearranged Disabled Man's living room. He is so excited. He has smoked for over 40 years (he says since he was 7), and he has quit smoking. I told you all about his pet bird? Well, my mother-in-law loves birds and has been keeping him. Since DM has quit smoking and gotten lots of things in his life in order healthwise with his hip replacement and all, I asked if he would like to have his bird back. He's so excited! He got rid of it only because my mother-in-law would take it, he kept having falls and constant hip pain, and he was afraid his cigarette smoke would kill his beloved pet. So now his house is Shelby ready! :) He is a pic I have posted before of a visit he had with his bird not too long ago.
So we didn't get home until 10:30 pm. Ugh. I told the kids we are still getting up on schedule tomorrow anyway! We slept in today since we all got in bed so late last night, but we can't do that again in the morning. Hubby goes back to work tomorrow, and we just need to get back to our schedule.
I almost had another Dove or Bliss when I got home, but I decided against it. I did really bad with water today. I only had 2 bottles! Eek! And I'm 2 f/v servings short. It's already 11:30 pm, so I'm just going to go to bed and do better tomorrow. I only used 2 weekly allowance points today, and I still have 11 left and now 5 activity points to get me through Thursday night. I haven't so much as peaked at the scale, so I don't know what's going on there. Don't forget to vote for my kitty! You'll just have to endure me telling you that for the next 21 days. LOL
