Good Morning and Happy Thursday! It is sooooo humid outside still, but they are saying rain is on its way which should help some. I cannot wait for this to break so I can go for a run outdoors! I’m happy to report that I am feeling nearly 100% better since I started having those stomach issues/feeling weird on Tuesday night. I think it was largely do the heat and humidity and not drinking enough water, but also maybe partly a minor stomach bug/virus. Whatever the case, I’m feeling better.
Last night I went to the mall after work for a bit to check out the sale at Express. I got a really cute dress and a pair of shoes.. both for $22!! All of their clearance stuff is an additional 30% off.. score! I split a pretzel with Emily from Aunt Anne’s and it was awesome – though 4 points for just half of it! I was glad to have someone to share it with because the whole thing is 8, which is a ton for something that won’t fill you up!
I just made a simple dinner of an egg on toast:
It was one fried egg (2 pts), with 1 oz reduced fat mozzarella (1 pt) and 1 tsp garlic gold (0 pts) on 1 slice of wheat toast (1 pt). I also had a mini bar from Weight Watchers which is actually awesome:
It has pretzels, chocolate, caramel, and peanuts (plus a ton of other ingredients on the not-so-short list) but is also 1 point and a nice little treat.
This morning I got to pick up my CSA and it was full of fruit again! Love love love.
Look how beautiful those apricots are! Plus there were plums, peaches, swiss chard, and green onions. I love it when there’s so much fruit in the box because I feel like I really get my money’s worth… I’m excited to see how the season progresses!
Breakfast was overnight oats and I went back to adding yogurt and soy milk, instead of just soy milk like I have been for a while. It makes a huge difference in the texture – – it gets thicker and creamier with the yogurt in there instead of just the soy milk.
Into the mix:
- 1/2 cup rolled oats (2 pts)
- 1/2 scoop protein powder (1 pt)
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds (.5 pts)
- 1/2 cup soy milk (.5 pts)
- 1/4 cup nonfat greek yogurt (.5 pts)
- 1/2 cup strawberries (.5 pts)
Having a cold breakfast like this is essential on days like today!
When I walking outside to my balcony to check the weather, I walked by my birthday flowers and they looked so pretty I had to take a pic!
Good job, Wil! 🙂 I also got the Sony E-Reader Touch, which is like a Kindle but it’s touch screen. I bought Michael Pollan’s In Defense of Food last night and just started reading it on there this morning.. it is SO cool!
Have you read any good books lately that you’d recommend?
