I feel like I ate cat food…

13 Jul

Alrighty, I thought I would give tuna a try. I haven’t eaten tuna for more years then I can recall…scary that! I used to like tuna sandwiches but somewhere along the way the texture and taste become disgusting to me so they got scrapped from my food options. It seems though that everywhere I turn lately I am hearing about the health benefits of tuna; it’s got a decent amount of protein, is low in calories and fat…how can I change my food habits if I don’t try to incorporate new things into my food choices?

The tuna I ate tonight was Flaked Light Skipjack Tuna; the flavour was Tomato and Basil. Yes, that’s right, tuna isn’t just tuna anymore…it comes in flavours! I thought picking a flavour would make it easier for me. lol. The entire can of tuna is only 1 point! When I read that I really hoped I was gonna like it. 🙂 I drained it, mixed it with 1/2 tbls Light Miracle Whip, put it on bread with some pickles and mustard and there we go, tuna sandwich. I tasted a little bit out of the bowl and was not impressed but decided that after topping it with the pickles and mustard it’d probably taste better. I was wrong. The texture was disturbing, manageable but disturbing but oh dear god the flavour!! Who in the world came up with this?!? Ugh. Gack. Ick.

I ate the sandwich, I mean what was I gonna do waste it? But never again! I kept smacking my mouth after I was done the sandwich because the flavour just wouldn’t go away and the smell, well, I swear to you I fed my cats something that smelled just like that! Oh wait a minute…I used to feed my cats tuna…so yeah, it did smell like that because it was that! (minus the tomato and basil of course). It’s a little sad I didn’t like the tuna, it would have been great to use as a topping for my salads and to have in the occaisional sandwich but it’s just not gonna happen.

the only creature that should eat tuna!

Moving on from the tuna, yesterday I did not post because absolutely nothing of interest happened. Quite the boring day sunday was. Here is what I ate:

1 hard boiled egg = 2 points

1 spinach salad = 4 points

1/2  cup + 1/8 cup Sidekicks Tomato Alfredo = 6 points

5 baby potatoes = 1 point

1 package Jolly Time popcorn = 1 point

1 cup pineapple = 1 point

1 peanut butter and jam sandwich

    – 2 piece bread = 2 points

    – 1 tblsp  peanut butter = 2 points

    – 1 tblsp jam = 1 point

1 Thinsations package Peanut Butter = 2 points

1 cup grapes = 1 point

I used all 23 of my daily points. 🙂 One thing I did that surprised me was in the evening when I was finding something to eat for that last point, I automatically went for one of my weight watchers 1 point candies but I remembered the fruit so I had the grapes instead. I actually chose fruit over chocolate! Weird…but good!

So, for today, today was a crap day. I didn’t feel well and I got bad news right at the beginning of the day. All I wanted to do was come home and crawl back in to bed but since that wasn’t an option I stayed at work, ugh. I can’t think of the last time I was so grateful for the work day to be over. Only because I have such good work friends did I take a lunch break at all. I haven’t used all my points for the day and I know I am not going to. I know, I know, big rule of Weight Watchers…Always Eat All Your Points! Well tough, it’s just not happening today, I can’t do it. 😛

Here is what I did eat tho:

3/4 cup Almond Special K = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 banana = 2 points

1 Asian Supreme salad = 4 points

    – sesame orange dressing, sweet dried cherries, won ton strips, whole pea pods, carrots, iceberg and romaine

    – I added to the salad some mixed veggies

1 cup blueberries = 1 point

     – I didn’t eat quite the entire cup but I ate enough that I am going to count the point lol

1 cat food…er, I mean tuna sandwich

    – bread = 2 points

    – 1 can tuna = 1 point

    – 1/2 tbls Light Miracle Whip = 0 points

    – 7 sweet pickles = 1 points

    – mustard = 0 points

1 cheese slice = 1 point

1 cup grapes = 1 point

2 cups kettle corn = 3 points

This puts me at 19 points for the day and that is where I am staying; starvation mode be damned.

The salad is another one of the Fresh Express salads…I am not exactly sure what makes it Asian, the dressing maybe, the pea pods? I know! The won ton chips! lol. Some stupid white person probably came up with the salad ingredients and said “let’s call it Asian, other white people will feel like they have eaten something ethnic when they buy it!” lol (I am not racist against white people I am white, I just think it’s funny this salad is called Asian Supreme when it’s not an Asian salad – at least according to my Asian friends, shrug) The best part about it was the won ton strips, they were gooood! Actually, so were the cherries, I was surprised, I am not fond of dried fruit but they were pretty good. 🙂

I drank a lot of water today; that is becoming easier and easier. Despite the not eating all my points I think I did well with getting my food groups in. I had protein, veggies, fruit, grains, dairy…um, what else is there? I think I will have to research the food groups for next time! 🙂
