You all know I don’t do processed food too often, but when Jimmy Dean DeLites Turkey Egg bowls go on sale, I always get a few. They are tasty, and yesterday I kicked mine up with hot sauce an fresh baby spinach – this bowl comes in at only 6 WW points.
Later on in the morning I could feel my blood sugar dropping, so ate half of a banana muffin – I brought in treats to the office – just store bought muffins and coffee cake – I had no intention of eating any of it, but I knew I wanted to work out at lunch – so I had a 5 point 1/2 jumbo banana nut muffin. Not gonna lie, it was tasty!
So I was all set to leave to work out, and then our building has no water. One of my bosses is the office manager, she was on vacation, so I had to handle the situation. By the time that was all fixed, it was 1:20, and my window to leave quickly closed.
I did have a delicious soup though – I got it from the WW website.
Spicy Thai Beef-Noodle Soup (4 servings, 7 PointsPlus)
- 6 ounces rice noodles
- 1 jalapeno, sliced
- 6 ounces lean beef
- 7 cups low sodium beef broth
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce (only 1 if you don’t use low sodium)
- 2 tablespoons cilantro (which I forgot!)
- 1 tablespoon minced ginger
- 1 teaspoon sriracha (or less if you don’t want it spicy)
- 2 cups broccoli
Put beef broth, soy sauce, ginger and sliced jalapeno in a stock pot. Bring to a boil. Add rice noodles – mine only needed to cook about 4 minutes. Remove from heat and add thinly sliced beef and broccoli – the broth will cook both the broccoli and beef. Serve with fresh cilantro. I love how spicy this broth is!
I did my grocery shopping after work yesterday and I think I like getting it over with on Friday night. The store wasn’t crowded at all. I was then going to meet Tony and my step-son out at a nearby Chinese restaurant. As I was checking out, I could feel this person next to me getting really close, and I am like WTF?! I turned around and it was Joe!
I was so happy to see him! We haven’t seen him since last December when he surprised the shit out of me – Tony figured it out through Facebook that he and his girlfriend were heading into town before Christmas last year, and since I have yet to jump on the social media bandwagon, it was a surpise to me!
Here are Joe and Tony from last Christmas:
And here is Tony and Joe circa 1991?
Is my husband a hottie or what?! Love this picture. 😀
I ended up having shrimp pad thai for 12 points with 1 potsticker which I am calling 3 points. No pictures, can you believe it! It looked like this though:
So I went into today’s WI feeling great. I worked out 330 minutes this week. I didn’t have my typical wine. I kept hydrated, even at night – so much so that Tony had to cut me off at 9:30 so I wasn’t up 5 times in the middle of the night to pee. So imagine my surprise when I stepped on the scale this morning.
Yep – UP 2.2 POUNDS! I can’t explain it. I know I had a slice and a half of deep dish pizza, two pieces of fried chicken and half a slab of ribs last weekend, but I was still within my point range – in fact, I still had 30 flex points at the end of the week, and I earned 24 exercise points.
At first I wanted to cry, but now that I am home, thought about it, I am letting it go. It’s one week in my life – it was a good week – I didn’t let some asshole teenagers bring me down and turns out I don’t need to have a glass of wine while making dinner.
So it’s all good. But cheerleading comments would be helpful! 😀
Busy day today – BBQ for my step-son and his fiance, so I have 11 people coming over. I’ve got typical bbq fare: hot dogs, brats, Italian sausage, pasta salad, fruit salad. Oh, and I may be making snickerdoodle icecream sandwiches – Joe loves cinnamon!
Make it a great day!
