instead of making my end of the week collage of all the food for the week i decided to break it into meals this week.

my week in breakfasts and lunches-

my week in dinners- (yes i know there are 9 squares, but one was my corn that was part of my dinner one night, and one night i ate pancakes and a taco... not at the same time hah, due to extra points)

a week's worth of snacks-

yesterday and today

yesterday my brother doug and his wife came to visit. between being busy with them, and starting to feel sick i opted out of posting last night and went straight to bed... so here is a collage of everything i ate yesterday.


last night i ended up sleeping for 14 hours straight.... needless to say i woke up and the sickness had hit me full force. fever, horrible hoarse cough, sore throat and headache from the coughing, dizzy, and exhausted. so i started my day off with chicken noodle soup for breakfast... then whipped up some pancakes for lunch and a turkey taco for dinner.

breakfast- crispix and a serving of super sweet strawberries

lunch- salad and cottage cheese

dinner- a chicken tender with lettuce, shredded cheese and ranch dressing in a tortilla

snacks- SHSE pizza, yoplait white chocolate and strawberry yogurt, strawberries (yes, MORE strawberries! i told you they were super sweet!!), honey wheat pretzels, a fiber plus bar, FFSF chocolate pudding

I was kind of bummed tonight because Applebees was having Teacher Appreciation Day and a bunch of people from work were meeting up for dinner... they were offering 99 cent entrees.. and i really wanted to go... but alas i knew nothing good would come of it nutrition wise so i stayed home... booooo!

in unrelated news, i have a hair appointment tomorrow! I kidna really want to chop off all my hair, but have my reservations... this should be interesting!!

a day late

yesterday greg and i wisked off to the tropical Toledo, Ohio after work for a suprise birthday dinner for cookie. we didn't get home til almost midnight so I didnt have time to post for the day.

breakfast- yoplait cinnamon roll yogurt with apple slices.

lunch- the same ol.... side salad with a tomato and cottage cheese

dinner- now dinner was GREAT! stephanie cooked for us and she can cook for me any day. She made us Jambalaya with kielbasa, chicken and shrimp paired up with cheddar garlic biscuits. and if that wasn't amazing enough she topped off the evening with chocolate molten lava cakes garnished with vanilla ice cream and fresh berries. this dessert was so spectacular that i had to include it in my dinner shot instead of sticking it in the snack section like i normally do. ohhh man was it so wonderful, she really out did herself last night!

snacks- SHSE pizza, honey wheat pretzels, an orange, strawberries, and carrots with ranch.

last night was such a great time, even though it was tough to wake up for work this morning due to lack of sleep. and the best part, even though i had no control over what our dinner was going to be, and then indulged in dessert... i only went over 3 points for the day!!!

today was spent doing family things in cleveland.

breakfast- i had cinnamon oatmeal at Doug & michele's house while they went out with greg for breakfast. i had no desire to sit and watch them get to eat delicious things.

lunch- my leftover subway from last night. 6 inch turkey sub on monterrey cheedar bread with double lettuce and double tomato.

dinner- family friends, the krammers, had our whole family over (my mom, dad, both brothers and their wives, greg and i) for BBQ. I had a cheeseburger with a tomato and some ketchup, a serving of grilled potatos, side salad, and then some random veggies. for dessert they brought out cake, i didnt eat it!

snacks- a fiber plus bar, apples, fruit chews, and last but not least i had 80% of a Crunch Crisp bar that i bought at the rest stop. i had 4 points left for the day and nothing to eat.. and since we werent getting home til after 11pm i decided to go for a candy bar. i gave 20 percent of it to greg as to just use the points i had left and not dig into my flex points.... it was so worth it.

Doug's birthday party

What a tough day! Greg and I drove to Cleveland to attend my brother Doug's suprise 30th birthday party. And what better place to celebrate your 30th birthday than at laser tag!! It was pretty great and i think he was suprised, even though he claims he knew about it the whole time (liar!). Anyways, with a party comes tons of food and cake... which i took no part of at all! thats right, not one chip, one slice of pizza, on sliver of cake, NOTHING!

breakfast- Strawberry shortcake yogurt

lunch- we grabbed some Chick-fil-A on the way in to Cleveland (per dougs request)... i had the points so I enjoyed a Chick-fil-A chicken sandich with medium fries. sooooooooooo good!

dinner- this was tough. we had the party room at laser tag which was filled with pizza and pop... i can't tell you how good it smelled and looked.... and i debated the whole time we were there but decided not to dig in. so during the way back to dougs house we made a side trip to subway so i could pick up something that i was able to fit into my points, as i knew there would be nothing but cake and goodies. I had a 6 inch turkey sub on montery jack cheese bread with double lettuce and double tomato.

snacks- easy does it today.... a fiber plus bar and apple slices.

all in all it was a tough food day. i have been sitting around temptation all day... and am currently sitting about 15 feet from an incredible looking birthday cake. hopefully tomorrow will be easier!
