I got to work yesterday and realized I never packed anything for my breakfast! There was an office meeting and the bagels were giving me the stink eye, but I ended up having 1/2 cup of my granola that I had in my desk drawer, a chopped apple and 1/2 a cup of skim milk. Breakfast comes in at 6 points.
It was predicted that we might get up to six inches of snow yesterday. But as luck would have it, at lunch time it was just a bit wet from the rain but wasn’t actually raining. I ended up walking a song/running a song for 50 minutes. Not gonna lie, it was pretty cold but it was my last chance workout before my WI today.
I ended up making 4 mini tacos for lunch when I got back – 4 mini corn tortillas, 3 ounces ground sirloin, 1/4 cup black beans, baby spinach, a little bit of cheese and hot taco sauce – all four came in at 10 WW points.
I love when the weather starts to get bad right before rush hour on a Friday night. It actually wasn’t that bad – we probably only got like an inch of snow on the drive home. Sadly though, I was driving behind a woman who had no one in front of her, yet was driving 15 miles an hour on a road where the speed limit is 45.
So we live near a river. You have to cross a bridge to get to our house. As soon as I got on the last road before turning down the road to my street, I knew something was wrong, and it had nothing to do with the weather. I turned on our local radio station – turns out there was an accident on the bridge. It took me 2 hours and 20 minutes to get home last night. As I got up to the accident I realized the two lanes going east were completely blocked, so they were alternating traffic through one lane. Luckily I had enough gas and I didn’t have to pee too bad.
I had tuna steaks on the menu, being Lent. Aren’t I a good Methodist wife to not fix meat on Friday’s for my Catholic husband?! 😀 I ended up using this spice seasoning on my tuna – so good! Thanks again Rachel for this seasoning – I am addicted!
My 4 ounce tuna steak pan seared in 1 tsp. of olive oil, fries and deli cole slaw came in at 10 WW points. Doesn’t everyone make tuna steaks after being stuck in traffic for almost 2 1/2 hours?
So last week I knew I gained so that’s why I “slept in” and missed my meeting. This week, I am happy that I am back where I was!
One thing I never did last weekend was exercise – I plan on doing that this weekend. I have some cool things on the menu this week, including boneless short rib pot pie, except I am making my own pie crust – puff pastry just never goes on sale. 😦 I am also making the Sandwich King’s meatlball sandwich with homemade ciabatta bread.
