My foot injury has improved a lot since last night, but I think it best to keep the weight off of it today, so I’m mostly just sitting on the couch keeping my foot up. When necessary I’m hobbling around a little on crutches, but that means I can’t carry anything (foodz) around (’cause my hands are full of crutches).
On weekend days I wake up quite a lot earlier than the rest of the family, so I had to take some extreme measures this morning.
- 6 rolo minis: 3 Points Plus
- Diet Mountain Dew: 0 Points Plus
I actually feel a little gross about starting the day that way after not eating healthfully yesterday but I’m going to have to be a little less picky while I’m on the couch. It should really just be a day or two longer, and I don’t want to be a demanding b-nag while my family is taking care of me. They’re doing a lot already, and I’m just not going to bother them more than necessary.
When everyone had woken up though, we did have an adventurous snaxperiment. My absolute favorite sandwich is a reuben, so when I saw these in the store the other day I knew I’d have to try them. My husband is a fan of corned beef too, so I thought I’d surprise him with it on the weekend.
When we opened the bag, it smelled unmistakably of corned beef and sauerkraut. I did not want to waste any points on chips after the rolo incident, so I decided to taste just one.
It tasted pretty much exactly as you would imagine. My overall analysis: reuben with a side of chips: can’t get much better than that; reuben flavored potato chips: nah, I’ll pass.
I’m going to go with:
One potato chip: 0 Points Plus
Saturdays are often our lazy day at home, and usually include bagels from the corner deli while binge watching something on Hulu or Netflix. Today was a raisin bagel with Star Trek: Voyager. Oh yeah, babe. I bet Janeway likes capers on her bagels.
Lunch: Ginormous deli raisin bagel w/ ALL the cream cheese: 20 Points Plus
- Honeydew melon: 0 Points Plus
- Diet raspberry Snapple
By mid afternoon I began to experience a strange sensation: I was tired of sitting around and wanted to get some exercise! I actually can’t wait to get off this couch and onto the Wii fit or out for a walk. I hope this injury recovers as quickly as I think it will.
Well, around 4:00 I was very hungry, but we don’t eat dinner until around 7:00, so I had another
- 20 Tostitos scoops: 6 Points Plus
- Wholly Guacamole 100 calorie pack: 3 Points Plus
- Salsa: 0 Points Plus
Snack Total: 9 Points Plus
Cooking was out of the question, so we ordered pizza. I could have done this a lot more reasonably, but I have a ton of weekly points left, and only two more days to go until my week restarts, so I just let loose and enjoyed.
- 3 slices Papa John’s original crust pizza with 3 cheese blend, tomatoes, mushrooms, and onions: 23 Points Plus
- Papa John’s ranch dipping sauce, 1 container: 3 Points Plus
- Diet cherry pepsi: 0 Points Plus
No big deal. I still have 14 weekly points and 5 activity points left. It’s another day of not particularly healthful eating, but of also not going off plan. Not the best performance, but acceptable for now.
