Black Fingernails Against the Red of Cherries

6 Jul

I absolutely love black fingernails; on guys or girls. I don’t paint mine nearly often enough – mostly out of laziness lol. I decided to paint them last night and have enjoyed them all of today. The best thing I saw my nails do today was contrast with the red of the cherries I ate as my evening snack. No two colours go together as well as red and black and the entire time I was eating my cherries I enjoyed how my nails looked near the deep red of the fruit. 😀

I ate less fruit today then I normally do and I am feeling the lack; I have gotten so used to eating such high quantities of fruit I almost missed it. Weird considering I used to barely eat any fruit and if I did it almost always came out of a can. I kid you not! I don’t know if this was my body compensating or what but I drank a lot of water today, I felt dehydrated right from the beginning of the day and since I wasn’t getting as much fluid from fruit I was chugging back the glasses of aqua. Oh how quickly our bodies can change!

I got busy at work and didn’t eat my afternoon snack so I had a larger dinner then normal and I wonder if this might be a better way to go. I don’t mean purposefully making myself hungry – what I am talking about is that it is not even 8pm and I only have 1 point left – this means no having to force myself to eat a couple cookies and a glass of milk later this evening to use up my remaining points. Niiiiiice! I will have one of those 1 point Weight Watcher candies I have talked about before and end my food portion of the day on a small sweet note, yum!

Ok, let’s see what I ate today:

3/4 cup Almond Special K =2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 banana = 2 points

1/2 cup Heinz Maple Flavoured Baked Beans = 2 points

1 piece of toast = 1 point

1 kiwi = 1 point

1 Activia Blueberry Yogurt Cup = 2 points

1 serving whole wheat pasta = 5 points

1/4 cup Knorr alfredo sauce = 2 points

mixed veggies = 0 points

2 cups Kettle Corn = 3 points

1 cup cherries = 1 point

That totals 22 for the day and in an hour or so I will have my little candy and yah! that’s all my points for the day. 🙂

A note about that Kettle Corn I ate; that is not the Jolly Time Kettle Corn from previous entries,  it is Kettle Corn I bought at the Night Market. Real kettle corn! You gotta love google, it helps me find a lot of nutritional information. You can eat 2 cups of kettle corn for only 3 points 😀 *happy dance* This doesn’t mean I am going to eat it all the time (altho it will be popping up a lot in my food journal for the next couple days until the bag I bought is gone lol) but it is something that I really love that I have found a way to incorporate in to my diet. Hooya! I will take what small victories I can get! lol
