Well.....I guess yesterday wasn't a total loss food wise...because it reminded me how I feel when I eat too many carbs and not enough veggies.........I just feel fatter today......and I don't like that.....veggies make me feel more comfortable........besides...hopefully I got that craving over with.

Starting with coffee with sf syrup = 0 pts and 2 cals

Weather is not pleasant so will be inside......I have struggled with a small kitchen and really disliked it for the last 5 years........so yesterday we turned the table around, moved some other furniture and i ordered a kitchen island yesterday that I think will finally make me a little happier about the storage...hopefully I will quit complaining about lack of kitchen storage.  I'm even boring myself...and I know D will be happy to not listen to that anymore.

Thinking about it now I suspect that was what was behind my carb fest yesterday........

Breakfast was an apple and a breakfast sandwich made with Brownberry Oven whole wheat sandwich thin, spray butter, 1 egg, 1 serving Hormel turkey pepperoni and 1 slice Kraft american cheese = 10 points and 448 cals

Breakfast turned out perfect numbers wise and was very filling, and with three proteins in the sandwich hopefully it will stick with me until lunch...I wish every days turned out like this.

 

Lunch was 4 thin slices of beef deli meat, 4 steak fries, corn and brussel sprouts/olive oil , an orange and a peanut butter Built bar = 13 points and 576 cals.

Evening snack...not hungry enough for a meal = V8 vegetable juice and harvest snaps green pea crisps mini pkg = 5 points and 160 cals.

1,184 cals for the day

 

Donkey on 01/12/2020:
Your breakfast sandwiches always look so yummy!

Weather is not pleasant here either, but we never did get the "big snow" that they predicted. I KNEW that if I went out and bought a snowblower, that not much would come of our storm system.

bearcountrygg on 01/12/2020:
The snow here isn't as deep as they predicted for us either although it continues to come down but lightly. Those sandwich thins make them so easy...they hold together really well.


Donkey on 01/12/2020:
Meant to mention yesterday that those mini "Kind" bars are so cute! How many points/calories are in one of them?

bearcountrygg on 01/12/2020:
The mini kind bars are 4 points each or 2 for 7 points...and are 100 cals each...tasty and probably high because of the nuts and chocolate.....they are tasty.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/13/2020:
I'm a big fan of pop chips too. they are so tasty.

i also love the dried peas snack above! it must have been pretty satsifying snack with veggie juice...i cannot do the veggie juice much, it's strong to me.

great, healthy choices. nice menu!

bearcountrygg on 01/13/2020:
Thanx....I prefer the peas.....and I have always liked V*...we usually have that around for times when we think we didn't eat enough veggies that day......pop chips are kind of new to me....I think this was my first bag of them...but I've heard a lot about them...will likely become a evening snack if one is necessary...but I'm still trying to avoid snacks....snacks can get me into trouble.

Ice storm going on here...everything is a skating rink. 

Wen to the freezer looking for something for my breakfast.......( feels good finally cleaning that out)....found a couple of  ziplock bags with pancakes.........warmed all of them...but not everyone in the picture was edible.......tossed what wasn't......so did have 5 and tossed 2 in the trash.

5 pancakes, less than 1/4th cup Mrs Buttersworth lite, spray butter, coffee and sf coffee syrup = 14 points and 440 cals

Need to incorporate more fruit and veggies today....lately meals have been carb heavy and I'm actually getting tired of those.

First snack of the year.......and I'm happy that I was able to put it off this long....proves to me that I don't have to just eat on a whim....that it's okay to ignore the desire to snack....but this morning a snack was needed...so i went with it.

1 mini bag of pop corner kettle chips and 2 mini kind bars = 11 points and 320 cals

Lunch was a pork chop, roasted brussel sprouts including olive oil , mixed vegetables and an orange = 5 points and 310 cals

Well so much for the fruit and veg for the rest of the day...i was STARVING!!!!!!  Fruit and veg was not going to satisfy that........so I ate what I was craving.....

Dinner = unicorn cereal, unsweetened almond breeze, a caramel built bar and a cup of tea = 14 points and 362 cals

Calories for the day was 1,432

 

 

Horn_of_plenty on 01/11/2020:
What an enjoyable, tasty breakfast :)

I hope the storm dies down soon!

bearcountrygg on 01/11/2020:
Looks like it will last all weekend.....didn't eat all of the pancakes...2 were inedible...LOL


Donkey on 01/11/2020:
Our storm is hitting the area today. It started raining yesterday, and that same rain (on and off) is turning icy with a little snow. Big Snow coming later today...

I was just speaking with another co-worker about how I eat a lot of vegetables. I'm starting to crave carbs - LOL... I know what you mean though. It's easier to do in the summer, warmer weather.

Looking forward to the other pictures you'll post today :-)

bearcountrygg on 01/11/2020:
I'm craving veggies now....and more fruit.....the rest of the day I will make that happen.

bearcountrygg on 01/11/2020:
Well that didn't work out....UGH


Donkey on 01/11/2020:
You'll get no criticism from me. You had more fruit and vegetable. That is a good thing. They didn't hold you, and that's fine. They don't hold me either! Which is why going vegetarian never works for me, as much as I would like it to.

Keep going with the fruits and vegetables! They have other benefits.

bearcountrygg on 01/11/2020:
I will have to tomorrow.....


Donkey on 01/11/2020:
Your cereal is so pretty!

bearcountrygg on 01/11/2020:
It's unicorn cereal and it tastes like a unicorn looks...LOL

Freezing rain here for the entire weekend and a sheet of ice already...so we will be stuck at home.  Plenty to do here so that isn't a bad thing............

Breakfast was coffee, sf syrup Special K Nourish cereal cup with almonds and cranberries, 2 sprouted bread toast, spray butter, apple = 11 points and 407 cals........I wish all meals would work out this well number wise.

Lunch was easy...I accidentally ruined the seal on a Microwavable mac and cheese so I went ahead and made that......so lunch was a Hamburger Helper microwave cheeseburger macaroni cup with added mixed vegetables and a Well Yes butternut squash and sweet potato sipping soup...= 14 points and 397 cals.

Dinner was leftover goulash and 2 biscuits with 1 slice of Kraft singles, some roast beef deli meat and mustard....30 points and 971 cals

Total cals for the day was 1,775....more cals than I'm comfortable with but then again i do like to keep shaking it up...........no scales, and shooting for fitting into a favorite pair of jeans.........looking forward to that day!!

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/10/2020:
I keep seeing the really good bread you were buying at an Amazon Go store by me. I will soon buy the bagels i've been meaning to try - high protein bagels. Breakfast looks delightful! Yeah, breakfast tends to be easier to keep lower, i agree.

bearcountrygg on 01/10/2020:
Those Amazon stores look pretty interesting...are they the ones without a check out? The bread is good and organic.


innerpeace on 01/10/2020:
i just love the sprouted bread, I drive extra miles to buy it.

bearcountrygg on 01/10/2020:
I like it in a sandwich and toasted...and love that it's organic too.


Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/10/2020:
yes, the ones without a checkout - there's one in the city by my workplace lol of course right!?

also, lunch = fantastic!

bearcountrygg on 01/10/2020:
I've seen those stores on TV....of course we would never get anything like that around here...in fact Michigan will probably never see them.....it's a big city thing....LOL...Can you imagine something like that in Detroit...LOL


Donkey on 01/11/2020:
Yes, I think I'm craving carbs, because each one of these photos looks so yummy!

bearcountrygg on 01/11/2020:
Very carb heavy day...and I kind of feel heavier...UGH!

I figure today will be a good day to get some mystery packages out of the freezer and make them part of my meals .......they need to be eaten or tossed.....so it's time for me to stop putting that off....i'm also noticing that I'm gravitating to more recently purchased things...so it's also time to get after those expired things too....they sure aren't getting any fresher...so I guess there is no better time than right now.....if nothing more it will serve the purpose of not sticking little bits of things in the freezer without at least writing what it is and  putting a date on it.........making myself use up outdated stuff will make me think before storing so much......( it's always just easier to grab the new stuff).......this will be like some kind of punishment to me......but so be it.  I will toss anything that is not edible of course..............

coffee and sf syrup = 0 points and 2 cal

I pulled 4 packages from the freezer randomly for the day....turns out 2 were pancakes, 1 was a few fries and one was a container with what looks like some kind of pasta tomato mixture........decided that the 2 pks of pancakes would be breakfast and will decide on the rest later.

5 pancakes, spray butter and 1/4 cup Mrs buttersworth lite syrup = 15 points and 460 calories

I feel like posting pictures of everything I eat is becoming a real habit ( hope I don't forget and eat before the pic though...but,,,so far, so good).

I also feel that since using up past dated packaged and canned foods and bits of leftovers from the freezer are also part of my resolutiuons for the year ( I have already worked in some potato sticks and the puppy chow cereal from yesterday) and still the containers aren't empty...i have a place I'm keeping those and they will keep showing up in my meals until they are gone.  Hopefully since WW allows all foods.....I can get this part of my resolutions done too.  The bad part...so far this stuff has been high in carbs....will see how that goes and adjust as needed.  At least I feel good about 4 packages out of the freezer...and D seemed especially happy!!

Funny enough that the mystery meal was goulash...I had just made goulash last night.,..but this wasn't it...LOL......obviously used at least 3 different pastas so must have been using up odds and ends...but it was tasy and glad to have that gone now.

goulash = 14 points and 501 cals and an orange = 0 points and 62 cals.

Dinner was weird......because the fries came out of the freezer this morning I had to work them in........Made the biscuits for D and baked all of them because they have been in the freezer long enough..spray butter.....ate up the oikos triple vanilla yogurt and added nutmeg, apple to round things out a bit.....weird dinner but I'm full = 337 calories and 17 points

Total cals for the day was 1,632

 

Donkey on 01/09/2020:
Pretty plate! I love your photos!

bearcountrygg on 01/09/2020:
I'm committed to a year...LOL


Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/09/2020:
oh man, i want those pancakes! you know how they sell protein pancake mixes? i've been wanting to try them but so far haven't bought any...because i feel like i can make my own pancakes without a mix...there are so many online healthy recipes for them without using a mix. what i really want is to make cottage cheese pancakes!

bearcountrygg on 01/09/2020:
These are probably kodiak cakes...but I can't be sure....they are sticking with me so I'm guessing yes. There are a lot. I used to make my own..from scratch.......since kodiak cakes came out though it's usually those. There are a lot of recipes. The latest I've heard is not high protein...or really healthy....but those little cheap packets or jiffy mix boxes of muffin mixes that make about 6 small muffins.....I'm hearing the strawberry and blueberry are good but you can use any flavor apparently...just add an egg and a tiny amt of milk...and you get 6 delicious pancakes.....according to everyone that has tried them......


legcramps on 01/09/2020:
Love pancakes!

Another day of quiet and I'm enjoying it.........One of D's hunting buddies is up here and they went out to let the hounds loose....they love that and i am happy that D isn't in the woods alone.......ice and snow give me more concerns and they are there together so it's safer...plus...they are guys...they love getting stuck in the snow and this way...they are they to pull eachother out od snow banks..........and of course there is their continuing debate over Ford Versus Chevy...LOL

Kind of reminds me of the time there was a construction crew working in front of our house and it was their lunch time apparently...and I happenend to look at our back yard...and there was one of their crew sitting in my boys sandbox playing with the tonka trucks.....( luckily my kids were in school).....but that grown man was having the time of his life digging holes and pushing sand around.....LOL....when his break was over...he walked to the road...got into his REAL backhoe and got back to real work.......Made my day!

Anyway............I'm full of energy...feeling great...except for allergies but that I am used to.......so another cleaning and sorting day....getting a lot done and there is so much more to do....how could we have ever ended up with so much stuff?????

Breakfast, coffee, sf mocha syrup, 1 serving of Oikos triple zero vanilla yogurt, 1 serving of cracklin oat bran cereal  and an orange = 11 points and 404 calories....which i figure is just about perfect for me...If I can have 3 meals a day averaging 10 to 15 points and 400 to 450 calories each..then it would work out really well..........I could easily handle that unless I feel like I'm not losing.

Boy...that breakfast sure looks like dog food...LOL

Lunch was a big bowl of lettuce with turkey pepperoni and dressing = 10 points and 334 calories

I'm happy to say that every single thing that I have photographed and put here over the last 8 days was the only things I have eaten during that time.  Most days it was easy...a couple of meals almost didn't get pics taken because i remembered at the last minute to do that...on a couple occassions i really really wanted to snack....but I didn't because I did not want to break the camera out and post it............and a huge wake up call came this morning when i took the trash to the garage....there were so many less food packages in it....although over the coming days i will be getting into the freezers and pulling out some mystery packages which i will not be able to identify until they are defrosted........but it needs to be done........( I need to at least label them in the future.)  I also will be getting into the expired foods....and may just reach into a container and grab something........randomly and it will be a part of meals until it's gone.  Apparently I am a big kid because I enjoy making a game out of things just to get them done.......love my timers and a chore to get done before it dings....will do darn near any chore for a sticker...boy did my parents miss the boat when theyn didn't give me a chore chart and the ability to earn stickers....I had to offer to do chores...and chose cleaning a bathroom (WHY) and drying dishes.........and that lasted for years.  Anyway........I'm happy that doing this is working well because now i don't want to do anything to break the habit and that's a good thing,

Just realized that I didn't get sundays apple and peanut butter pic posted...so here that is...after I said I had posted every one I decided I had better check myself....and noticed it was missing...luckily it was still in the camera...so this is from sunday evening

Dinner was goulash = 9 points and 334 calories

calories for the day were 1,132....and no more eating for me tonight.

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/08/2020:
this is my kinda breakfast! filling with all the different liquids and yogurt and also satisfying with the cereal. enjoy your day! I used to also eat smaller meals around 400-500 cals, lately they are a bit higher in cals.

bearcountrygg on 01/08/2020:
That cracklin oat bran reminds me of puppy chow...so it's a good thing that it's tasty...LOL.....You can handle some extra calories though...I think you burn calories well.....My low thyroid means i burn cals slowly....I have times when I burn them well though...and other times it just crawls along.......typical for Hashimotos...it varies though. If you can eat higher cals...that is great, I wish i could.


innerpeace on 01/08/2020:
I'm sure it is healthy, but I also thought of puppy chow looking at your cereal. Enjoy your day.

bearcountrygg on 01/08/2020:
Yup...thankfully it tastes good...LOL


legcramps on 01/08/2020:
Ahh! LOL, I also think it looks a bit like dog food ;)

bearcountrygg on 01/08/2020:
It really is people food.....I swear! LOL


Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/08/2020:
i am LOVING your photos! yum to the pepperoni salad!!! love love love!

soon i will need to clean up my clothes again in my closets.

bearcountrygg on 01/08/2020:
Love downsizing.......BUT...sometimes it just makes room for some new ones...LOL


happy-1 on 01/08/2020:
LOL... I looked at your breakfast and thought yum, wheatabix. I grew up on that.

bearcountrygg on 01/08/2020:
That is one funny looking cereal...i don't think it would be too popular really...although it tastes better than it looks...LOL


happy-1 on 01/08/2020:
It's probably great with raisins

bearcountrygg on 01/08/2020:
Yes it would be.


Donkey on 01/09/2020:

D is at the dentist so I'm making use of my alone time to do some cleaning and reorganizing........while it's quiet.  Hopefully get to some paperwork later as well as some laundry and strip the bed.

Breakfast was a multigrain sandwich thin with 1 sausage patty, 1 egg and 1 kraft single cheese slice, 1 1/2 apples and a cup of coffee with sf syrup = 14 points and 595 calories

Long phone call with oldest son this morning so late start on bedroom cleaning........threw togerther a quick lunch so I can get cleaning.

2 salami sticks , 1 serving of potato sticks and an orange = 11 points and 387 calories

Dinner was 2 beef and bean chimichangas with salsa = 21 points and 658 cals

Calories for the day was 1,636....

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/07/2020:
Salami both looks and sounds perfect. lately i'm craving salty foods. and caffeine!

i eat chips often with lunch...i'll bring veggies and a protein and supplement the carb part with chips, especially veggie chips. the calories are pretty good on them too...you know, the veggie straws that many brands are selling :)

bearcountrygg on 01/07/2020:
Yup...I have some veggie straws here....I like those too.

Getting a super early start on the bedroom cleaning that has been put off the last few days....hopefully starting early will get it done before something else gets in the way...............................because it's become a obstacle course in there.

Starting with coffee = 0 points and 2 cals and torani sf hazelnut syrup = 0 cals 0 points

Should be quiet around here all day so hopefully productive.

Making good headway with the cleaning...but had to take a break for a quick breakfast.

9 naan dippers = 8 points and 270 cals, jif to go = 8 points and 250 cal

Just threw together a quick lunch and want to get back to cleaning.....sandwich that contains sprouted bread, chicken breast and Dukes mayo = 17 points and 913 calories......that was a bit of a shocker, and 6 tiny tomatoes - 0 points and 18 cals and a La Croix = 0 points and 0 cals.

Not really hungry for dinner so I had a small serving of vanilla yogurt with some nutmeg  sprinkled on top......1 point and 41 calories

Calories for the day was 1,464

No more eating tonight...so far...I've becom accustomed to 3 meals a day without snacks....I wanted to snak last night but resisted.....and was fine.

 

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/06/2020:
those naans = delish...but they would't fill me....but boy are they tasty! in fact, all of your breakfast is tasty here!

bearcountrygg on 01/07/2020:
I think the peanut butter is what sticks with me.....the naans not co much....but I seem to have switched to 3 meals a day with no snacks at the moment without too much trouble....and for me...who is a grazer by habit......it really does help to just make a meal of basically anything...and tell myself that is it until lunch.......It allows me to forget about food for hours and that is what i think I need......I'm not letting hunger affect me right now.


legcramps on 01/07/2020:
Yum, I love your pictures, but boy do they ever make me hungry! LOL!

bearcountrygg on 01/07/2020:
Other peoples pics make me hungry too.....as well as advertisemnts, cooking shows.....and walking throught grocery store...LOL

Well....it's a freezing rain today...so the master bed room clean up will get done unless someone breaks a leg or catches fire or something........no excuses today.

Found out that a childhood friend passed away with lung cancer yesterday........life is fragile.... when she had reported that she hoped to leave the hospital the weekend before Christmas and it didn't happen...I suspected that it was quite bad.  One of my most cherished memories of her was her saying that she and another friend had gone to a restaurant and they met 2 guys there.......they both thought the same guy was pretty interesing and cute........so they drew straws to see who was going to show the most interest in him.....SHE said she LOST....and had to talk to the guy neither was interested in...LOL...well....she and the losing guy found out they were well matched and were married for 50 happy years and had a daughter.  I would say fate stepped in with that short straw..........

Breakfast

coffee with sf syrup = 0 points and 2 cals, 2 slices of sprouted bread toasted = 4 points and 120 cals, spray butter = 0 points and 0 cals, 1 serving of 6 Pioneer Woman egg bites = 6 points and 170 cals. orange = 0 points and 62 cals

these just came to my FB feed and I thought they were very important to remember right now.

 

Church services at the amish neighbors this morning...at least 30 horse and buggies just went by......freezing rain must make that a bit difficult......they do have small heaters in the enclosed buggies  but the horses will have to stand outside in it.  They continue to stream by as i write..........a huge turn out today.

Lunch was a sandwich thin at 4 points and 150 cals, ground beef at 13 points and 418 calories, mustard at 0 points and 9 cals, lettuce with 1 radish and ranch = 5 points and 146 cals, and a can of LaCroix at 0 points and 0 cals

Dinner was an apple 0 points and 94 cals and jif peanut butter at 8 points and 250 cals

Total cals for the day = 1,421

 

 

 

Donkey on 01/05/2020:
I'm sorry to hear about your childhood friend. That was a lovely story about the guys at the restaurant. Isn't it funny how things work out like that?

Last year (2019, so not that long ago), I had been invited by a Fitbit friend to join in one of those weekly challenges. She invited me several times, and each time I accepted. One of the teammates was Lucy, who never won but always pulled in respectable numbers (like 9000+ steps a day), which is even MORE impressive because she had obviously (from her profile picture) been fighting cancer. I was sad to learn through my FB friend that Lucy had died shortly after Christmas.

I especially like the meme about making a brand new ending.

bearcountrygg on 01/05/2020:
We moan and groan some days because something doesn't turn out the way we wanted it...but at the same time...others are going through some devastating things......we are alive...we have today and sometimes we just don't seem to appreciate it....and as in the story of my friend Karen........things that sometimes look like a problem can become something very different......our experiences make us who we are......and that is a good thing.


Horn_of_plenty on 01/05/2020:
wow, i certainly don't see horse and buggies on the regular!

your meals are looking fantastic, lots of fresh veggies :)

thank you for the quotes and i am starting to get inspired by you to make egg muffins of some sort for the mornings....soon.

bearcountrygg on 01/05/2020:
Have you chaffles? I've seen some pretty lood looking ones on facebook.....I have one of the little waffle irons...Amazon has them for around $10....so cute.....you can add spinach, tomato, onion....lots of things...I plan on making some of those soon.

Up and ready to get on with the day at 4:30......kept falling asleep in front of the computer last night...so decided to just go to bed.....did a couple crossword/word search things and a little reading and fell asleep at 10....I figure I am probably getting close to  close to 7 hours a day total...but i would really like it to be in a 7 hour chunk of time without falling asleep when I don't want to. 

Breakfast was a bit bigger than necessary but low points......I think it would be nice to have 3...400 -500 calorie meals per day...that would really simplify things.....I haven't had anything other than 2 or 3 meals a day for the last 3 days...no snacking at all...and taking pics really is the reason...I just don't want to put all those snacking pics out there and if that is what it takes...then I'm okay with that...it will help a lot with creating that new habit.  There is a lot of repitition in my meals and I feel kind of funny posting pics of the same foods over and over again but that is the way it is....some things just need to be used up...and the bottom line is that I will be repeating foods until they are used up.......posting pics is a way to keep me inline and it's quite a powerful motive for me....I can see that to have less repitition I need to buy smaller quantities of things...then of course there is the stored food.....fun!!!

Breakfast = coffee and sf hazelnut syrup = 0 points and 2 cals, grapes =0 points and 94 cals, banana = 0 points and 121 cals, 1 cup oikos triple vanilla yogurt = 3 points and 138 cals

Today I dump the litter boxes ( I'm sure that will make Sampson happy)...and a through cleaning and reorganizing master bedroom.  Dishwasher is already running.

Lunch was in a huge what I consider a serving bowl...definately bigger than it looks in the picture.......3 cups lettuce = 0 points and 24 cals, 2 radishes = 0 points and 1 calorie, 3 cherry tomatoes = 0 points and 5 calories, 8 ounces salmon with everything but the bagel seasoning = 11 points and 461 calories and ranch dressing = 3 points and 90 calories....

 

Got the litter boxes done, some laundry and dishes but D's phione is still not right so we worked on that again for far too long and he finally took it back to verizon and it's working again but for how long....probably won't get to the bedroomtoday...putting that off untiol tomorrow.

I don't mind your repetitive photos (if they will be). i enjoy looking at your photos a lot! :)

pets always enjoy fresh bedding / cage. I will be doing that today or tomorrow also :)

bearcountrygg on 01/04/2020:
Right now it's about the fresh stuff...pretty soon it will be about mystery meals from the freezer that I never did write the contents on...LOL

I do not mind repetitive photos either - you can change it up with different placemats, plates, bowls, cups, etc. A lot of fine dining is in the presentation, you know ;-)

That fruit bowl looks soooooo yummy!

bearcountrygg on 01/04/2020:
Fruit around here is beginning to get over ripe...so working it in when I can...and it is taking the place of sweets for now...LOL

Yummy cheery healthy choices!

bearcountrygg on 01/05/2020:
Just wait...it will get ugly...LOL


Donkey on 01/05/2020:
LOVE the food pictures! I just noticed that your dinner plate is in the shape of a heart! How cute is that????

Also, seeing your salad reminded me that I have radishes that need to get eaten up too. And I should probably get started on some of my baking/cooking that I've been putting off forever.

bearcountrygg on 01/05/2020:
Little old cheap dollar store plate...I kind of love it myself...LOL I let our last bag of radishes rot in the fridge...LOL

(WW points)
Weight: 0.0

Well...it seems like getting up at 4:30 A.M. is just going to be the way it is.....laying around awake in bed usually isn't productive.......I'm thinking that it is apparently my natural wake up time.....( back to the old days).....I've noticed that i'm falling asleep in a chair for a few minutes in the evening....but haven't actually taken an actual planned nap these 2 days and I'm sleeping better at night.........Wouldn't break my heart if I stopped the quick chair naps too........I'm going to test out noticing what tiem that happens and make sure I'm not sitting down then...and then having an earlier bedtime....I really want my 7 to 8 hours at night...in bed.........I see a new habit being created.  Also going to bed earlier is helping with evening snacking..........This could work for the greater good.

Coffee with sf hazelnut syrup to start = 0 points and 2 cals, 6 Pioneer Woman chorizo egg bites = 6 points and 170 cals, 2 slices Alpine Valley sprout bread = 4 points and 120 cals, spray butter = 0 points and 0 cals, 1 med banana = 0points and 105 cals, grapes = 0 points and 101 cals

This morning started a lot better than yesterday....heading for the city to run some errands and then back home to do a through pick up and cleaning of m points and 288 cals, aster bd room.

Lots of errands done and made really good time so was home right after noon....

Lunch was 5 ounces of salmon with everything but the bagel seasoning = 7 points and 293 cals, 5 McCains smiles potatoes = 10 points and 338 cals, 1/2 cup coleslaw = 3 points and 130 cals, LaCroix water = 0 points and 0 cals

1,259 cals for the day so far

Dinner on a little plate...not really hungry but also don't want to get snacky later so I had 1 chicken tender = 1 point and 92 calories and 1 cup of green beans 0 points and 44 cals.

Total calories for the day was 1,395......I actually have ww points left but they can roll over to the next few days.......I'vwe had enough calories today.

Love your breakfasts!

bearcountrygg on 01/03/2020:
I ate early today....need to hit the road soon.....


Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/03/2020:
TASTY breakfast!

bearcountrygg on 01/03/2020:
It was filling...kept me going all morning.....


legcramps on 01/03/2020:
I wish 4:30 am was my natural wake-up time, but then I guess 6:30 pm would turn into my natural go-to-bed time LOL

bearcountrygg on 01/03/2020:
Yup.......I so far have fallen asleep for a few minutes when I sit down....but I am going to bed earlier too......we had to get us for 32 years at 4:30....and I guess I never really got past that....I would love to be able to sleep in....but I can't....I can nap...but no sleeping in.


happy-1 on 01/03/2020:
Oh yum on the food today...

I wish I could nap. I think I take like two a year.

bearcountrygg on 01/04/2020:
When you get older...I think they may be mandatory....LOL
