The last weekend of NFL until Super Bowl Sunday! I’m a Colts fan and Patriots hater so today is a stressful day for me! LOL I have no excuse so this is a do as I say and not as I do…I drink beer when I watch football. I only drink Michelob Ultra, which still isn’t good and I really shouldn’t do it. But I enjoy it and I’m a firm believer that if we deprive ourselves of everything, we’re setting ourselves up to fail.
Today is day 2 of taking those Fiber Choice Chews. Working like a champ!!!!
I’m not hungry for breakfast this morning so I’m just enjoying some coffee with fat free half and half
We had said that we were going to take Sundays off for making sure we get our 10,000 steps but Steve and I just couldn’t do it so we got our steps this morning WOO HOO! Andrew did take the day off. Steve walked outside but I stuck with my inside path at Walmart. Andrew and I always talk the entire time. Since I was alone today, I put in headphones and opened Pandora on my phone. I opted for some good ol’ hippy 70s music. I ran out of thumbs down (Train? On a 70s channel? Really?) so I scrolled through to find another channel to listen to while I walked.
Here’s what everybody needs for walking music! Do a search for the Disney ride song of It’s A Small World and walk and bebop to Disney music! Holy smokes! That was so much fun and really put an extra spring in my step! Be Our Guest from Beauty and the Beast was the best to listen to while I walked. It was great! Kind of gives you a bit of a march because you pretty much instinctively walk to the beat of the music. What song was this nearly impossible to walk with the beat? Supercalafragalisticexpialadoshus!
Seriously! Give it a shot! Let me know what you think!
Got back from my 10,000 steps at Walmart and was hungry! I mixed together some Dannon Light & Fit Greek vanilla yogurt with about 2T of Quaker Simply Granola Oats, Honey, Raisins & Almonds. I’ve been missing oatmeal like mad! A serving size of this granola is 1/2 cup. I wanted to try adding a couple of tablespoons to see if it helped with my oatmeal craving. Worked like a champ! I highly recommend it! Just watch your serving size and I’ll probably only have it 2 or 3 times a week and won’t have it twice a day.
Lunch & Afternoon Snack
HUGE NFL fans over here and it’s the last playoff games today so we’re just grazing. I made a relish tray with broccoli, cauliflower, celery, cucumber and carrots. I found some sour cream dips at Walmart that have 2T of carbs per serving. They’re by Meadow Gold. As long as we dip and try to avoid scooping, I’m good! Not as good as it could be but it sure beats sandwiches, chips & cookies like we’ve always had
I also made burgers, on the griddle, that weren’t very good HA! I bought 4 patties at Walmart. They were on Manager’s Markdown for $4 and some change. I put them in a bowl and added an egg, diced onion, if diced a slice of that 0 carb Land O Lakes cheese and added about a teaspoon each of the jalapeño and the chili dips I mentioned above. Seems like it should have had a lot of flavor…yeah, not so much.
I’ve been so proud of myself today, not having beer and then, and then, and then…we remember that we have 2 free large pizzas at Dominoes from them taking almost 2 hours to deliver our last order. Yep, glad I have a diary to admit all of my sins. We have 1 pizza with garlic parm sauce, white meat chicken, onion, green pepper, bacon and spinach and the other with “regular” pizza sauce, bacon, ham, green pepper and onion. Go ahead and judge…I am
