I read this recipe over the weekend that I was excited to try this morning: 2 low-fat waffles with a beaten egg poured over them, toasted til the egg cooked, with a sprinkle of fat free cheese, and stuck together like a sandwich. I tried and tried to make it work... and I never got it right! I couldn't get the eggs to cook without burning the waffles, the egg was gross, the waffles were soggy in the middle... in short, a mess. I think I'll move on to waffles with reduced-fat peanut butter and banana, but this morning I ended up resorting to another mug scramble.
An egg, a veggie sausage patty, and a little fat free cheese. Yummy! 5 points.
I paired it up with this yogurt... most low-cal yogurts taste really strongly of Splenda to me, which I despise, but this was yummy! 2 points.
In retrospect, not a terrific breakfast. I wish the recipe had worked out so I could have had some whole grain carbs... I don't do well without carbs in the morning. :( It didn't sink me but I definitely missed them all day.
The snack I took to class... ten Snyders of Hanover mini pretzels (1 point) with a Laughing Cow cheddar cheese round (2 points) and one of my mini-pears (1). I ate the pretzels and cheese in class, then ate the pear while I was driving to vote.
For lunch I was completely burnt out... class was kind of emotionally stressful - it was a good class, I got my journal back and then got to meet with the professor one one one, and he had some amazing comments for me about how far I've come, etc - but it was just exhausting. I should have stopped in at my house and grabbed a Lean Cuisine for dinner, but I ended up stopping at Wawa's instead. I did do pretty well, however, and ended up with a 4" turkey sub with no mayo and a side of stuffing. 10 points - but, I have to say, it was pretty delicious!
I made dinner tonight - supposedly to "unwind" after my stressful day but it ended up being a little crazy, lol. Veggie and chicken curry - sweet potato, regular potato, squash, peas, and carrots in a light curry sauce over rice. 9.5 points.
I went over points today by 1 and a half, but I'm really not stressing over it... I never use all my "weekly" points so it can come out of that, plus I'm impressed that I managed to eat so well all things considered. :) Tomorrow is another day!
