Weak Eats

I haven't been doing to hot. I didn't do my weekly grocery run, so by Thursday, we were out of most our health food. Since, I've been eating out, often cameraless. I'll get back to it tomorrow. Some of this week's eats.

finally a grocery run

Tuesday and Wednesday

I haven't tracked much the past two days. I payed attention to what I was eating, but that was about it. Here are the eats for the past two days. I've had pretty bad headaches and had to work a lot so that's why I'm late posting. Back on track today.

Let's assess the damage:
Tuesday Eats:
Breakfast: Quaker Oats Chocolate Chip Chewy Bar 2pts.
100 calories, 2.5pts+
 Lunch: Romaine, Red pepper humus, olive, tomato, onion salad (to die for) 2pts, sweet potato with light butter 4pts, hard boiled egg 2pts.
Potato: 5pts+, Egg: 2.5pts+, Salad: 3pts+
Another shot of the delish salad..I need more humus.
 I had some tortilla chips as a snack 3pts.
Tortilla chips: 140 calories, 4pts+
 Matt and I worked at his lab for a bit after I got off work and we treated ourselves to Sushi Love for dinner. We split Edamame 2pts and I had a California Roll and most of a Veggie Roll 7pts.
I love this stuff...let's be honest though, if you put salt on cardboard, I could be convinced to eat it.
All of our sushi. I had the veggie and california at the bottom, and Matt had a spicy scalop and a shrimp specialty roll on top.
Dinner was followed by beverages with friends at Mellow. I had 12pts. (est 22pts+, 1,000 calories)
Love me some Nobel Pils

Wednessday Eats:
For breakfast, I had 1/2 a grapefruit with splenda 1pt...which of course is not enough when you eat breakfast at 7:15 and don't have lunch planned until noon, so at 10:30, Matt and I had brunch together. We got Bodos bagels. I had a sausage egg cheese bagel 10pts.
I found the missing grapefruit!
Oh, Bodos, I have missed you
 And look what came in the mail last night! My vitamins! I have heard great things about these so I'll keep you posted as I take them and see if I notice a difference. If you want to buy any, my rep is great! She's my aunt ;)

I snacked on another chewy bar 2pts while typing. Booo

Small sweet potato around 3, 4pts.

Dinner was a grilled chicken wrap and baked home made fries 8pts.

Long Monday

Monday was a long day! I seriously slept until 9:00 Tuesday morning to make up for how tired I was! I weighed in per my Monday usual. I'm down 1.8 lbs since last week. Not bad.

I got to work around 7:30am and didn't leave until after 7pm! I was busy all day long and rushing around to try and get everything done. I couldn't find the other 1/2 of my grapefruit in the fridge on my rush out the door (still haven't found the wandering fruit) so I grabbed apples which weren't really enough. 1pt.
90 calories, 1pt+
 I scarffed down lunch while meeting with my boss. It was a Santa Fe Style Chicken Salad 5pts and a hard boiled egg 2pts.
Salad: 240 calories, 6.5pts+, Egg: 65 calories, 2pts+
I wasn't expecting to be at work for so long or else I would have planned to have more food there. I ended up grabbing two cream cheese rolls to sustain me. Not the best, but not awful. They were 120 calories each- guessing 6pts total.
240 calories, 8pts+?
Chris, Jamie, and Mike invited us over for dinner last minute yesterday and I didn't get the message until after I left work. I ran to the gym and got my run on. I thought today was a 3.5 mile day...I don't know where I got that from because I just looked at my plan and it was just 3. I'm wondering if I can just do 3 on Wed now instead of the 3.5 planned. hah- oops. Oh well, 3.5 miles in 41 minutes. Not fast, but its what I can do. +4 activity points. Did I mention the treadmill is my personal purgatory? 

+4 activity points, -400 calories
As soon as I left the gym, I ran home, threw on jeans and a button down and headed out. I was a hot mess at dinner, but what was awaiting us was totally worth it! Our friends made steak and chicken fajitas with home made tortillas and pico. heaven.

Grilled Chicken, Flank Steak, and veggies. I may have hogged the veggies- they were so good and tender.

Tortillas in progress
I had one fajita, which I filled 1/2 with 1.5 oz of steak and 1/2 with 1.5 oz of chicken, some salsa, chipotle sauce, and veggies. I only ate 1/2 the tortilla. My guess is 6pts. I also had a large helping of chopped greens topped with pico and grilled veggies 1pt- I think I could eat this every day for eternity and be long as there were fries somewhere. I also had 1/2 a margarita 3pts and a glass of red wine (not pictured) 2pts. I was so exhausted that I rested on the couch while the boys played some hearts.

Monday Stats:
Water: ? oz. / 80 oz.

Weekly Points: 4 used today / 31 remaining
Exercise: 3.5 mile run

Sunday Funday

Whew- Monday was a loooong day today- more on that tomorrow. Sunday was spent buried under books grumpily pumping out a mere page on my thesis. The effort input did not match up with the output so it was a frustrating day, but there will always be some of those I guess. I had a splenda-ed grapefruit for breakfast 1pt.

50 calories, 0pts+
 Lunch was at LearningRx- aka my weekend thesis cave. I had a humus veggie salad with feta- AMAZING 2pts, with some peanutbutter celery 3pts, and a medium hard boiled egg 2pts.

Which looked like this 20 seconds later
After lots of work and little progress, Matt brought me some of these...11pts. The man knows the way to my heart.
500 calories
 Dinner was leftover veggie pizza from Pizza Bella. Delish the second time around...8pts.
And even better when washed down with cheesecake! 6pts.

I am literally exhausted so I'll come back and total all this up tomorrow. I know it wasn't over my weekly points left and wasn't too many calories, so I'm not that worried. 

Have a great night!
