Good evening, everyone! Hope you had a great day today. I know some of you are ready for Friday!
I was making breakfast this morning (you know, microwaving breakfast with love, lol) for me and the kids when I noticed our food had these cute things on them. I got a kick out of them anyway.
Lean Pocket breakfast sandwich, 2 cuties, half of a 0% nonfat Greek Chobani yogurt, and a firetruck.
I was satisfied til lunch. Then I had a Healthy Life bun with 14 grams of RF mayo, ketchup, mustard, and 2 98% FF Oscar Mayer hot dogs. I also had 28 grams of Baked Lays and zucchini and squash cooked in 1 tsp of olive oil and topped with 14 grams 2% cheddar.
Supper cooked in the crockpot all day. White chicken chili. I topped it with the rest of my Chobani 0% Greek yogurt from this morning and 14 grams 2% shredded cheddar. I used 28 grams of Doritos as crackers.
I took my youngest daughter shopping with me tonight for her Mommy date. She got to pick a special treat, and she wanted a repeat of what her brother had when he went - Dunkin Donuts. She was so super excited tonight. She is more of a quiet kid, and therefore she is easy to push aside and not give as much attention to. :( She loved it just being me and her. I was very much contemplating what to do. A donut is 7 points+, and I had exactly 7 points+ left. As we were walking in, she held my hand and looked up and asked, "Mommy, are you going to have a donut and hot chocolate with me?!" I decided then that I would have a donut with her but skip the hot chocolate with whipped cream and just have coffee. I figured eating the points instead of drinking them would make my mind happier. Boy do I love their hot cocoa, though! I had the jelly filled donut with black coffee.
She chatted away and wanted so much to sing songs with me in the van all the way home. It was so sweet. I need to make special time for this little girl more often! Is there any point in parenting where you feel like, "Wow! I'm such a great mom!" ???? Lol. It ain't happening here!
Around 10 pm, I was getting shaky hungry. I have done this for the past year or so occasionally, but the past 2 weeks it has been a very frequent thing. I guess I need to schedule a physical and see if I am pre-diabetic or diabetic. I know it is hypoglycemia. I am betting the sugar high from the Donut left me with a giant sugar crash, hence the shakiness and feeling bad.
I had a banana and 17 grams of crunchy peanut butter to try to help.
I didn't feel very much better. :( That's not good. I was also a f/v serving short for the day. I went to grab an apple but then decided maybe I shouldn't get something else sweet. I dunno! So I got carrot chips and salsa instead.
In a nutshell: I didn't mean to have chips twice today. I normally try not to have chips with lunch when I am having chips with supper. Lunch plans were changed today, though. My goal is to really cut back on chips starting next week. I have things like whole grain crackers, Wheat Thins, and pretzels scheduled instead of chips. I know this'll be a hard process to wean the kids and the husband off of chips, though. I am fine without chips until everyone else starts getting them out. Then I want some. The donut wasn't a planned thing. I knew I was going to the store tonight, but I hadn't anticipated taking my daughter until she reminded me that she had been waiting for her turn at a Mommy date for about a month now. I'm at least thankful I had the points for it! Glad that I didn't cave tonight and eat anything and everything just because I was shaky. Got in my 80 oz of water. No exercise besides shoppin. The day could've been better as far as food choices, but I'm only 3 points+ over the entire day. When can you ever do that and even have a donut?? Lol
