Another Monday

20 Sep

The week has begun and so far nothing all that momentous has happened. lol. Come on, give me a break, it’s only monday! I need another day or two before something interesting is going to happen. 😛

I just finished eating a Weight Watchers Banana Nut Muffin, Mmm! It always surprises me when the Weight Watchers food tastes good and yet, over and over I am pleasantly surprised by the tastes I encounter. While I am very happy to be Canadian I do envy people in the states who have access to way more Weight Watchers foods then I do. sigh. There used to be more up here but for some reason WW stopped distributing most of it in Canada, double sigh. I get a wider variety of WW foods when I go to England for heavens sake! We do have some WW stuff, the muffins for example. There are also cookies…little 3 bite cakes (those aren’t so great, too dry)…um, yeah, stuff like that. If you go to actual WW meetings you can buy more stuff (I know this cause my mom goes) but I can’t afford the meetings so I can’t buy the stuff they have at the locations. Whenever I eat the WW snack packs they are ones my mom got me. 😀 Aren’t moms great? lol

What we do have though are Smart Ones and Lean Cuisines – frozen dinners and desserts that have the points pre-calculated and written on the box. Those are pretty good, expensive, but good. I usually have one frozen dinner a week, but I have it for lunch, cause there always seems to be one evening a week where I just don’t feel like making lunch for the next day. shrug. Whatcha gonna do? I’m lazy, lol, that’s what those frozen meals are for!

So far today I have eaten:

29 grams Honey Nut Cheerios = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 banana = 2 points

1 Salad = 0 points

mixed raw veggies = 0 points

1 light babybell = 1 point

1 tbls three cheese ranch = 1 point

1 Lean Cuisine Chicken a l’orange = 4 points

1 cup Butternut Squash soup = 2 points

1 Sandwich

    – 2 pieces bread = 2 points

    – .07 kg Fat Free Turkey Breast = 1 point

    – 1 tbls light miracle whip, mustard, tomato, lettuce = 0 points

    – 1 light cheese slice = 1 point

1 weight watchers banana nut muffin = 3 points

That puts me at a total of 22 points – still got 2 more points to go! I know I am always saying I don’t feel like eating all my points but today I really don’t feel like it. I blame SI, a guy at work, he came in to work last week (all last week!) really sick, coughing up lungs, sneezing, basically spreading all kinds of nasty germs around and I think I caught it…not quite as bad as what he had but some form of it. Grr! I hate when people come to work sick! They aren’t doing anybody any good, double grr! Sorry, I will attempt to not rant about it, it’s just we work in a closed air environment, I breathe in those stupid germs and then I get sick cause my immune system sucks…and I am starting to rant, sorry! 🙂

So yeah, to wrap all that up, I don’t feel well. sigh. When I don’t feel well I don’t wanna eat. I know some people when they get sick they eat for comfort, I go the opposite way – I stop eating completely. All day today I ate because it was the time to eat but not because I wanted to eat. I am hoping, by eating my fruits and veggies and protein I will keep my body running at a good level and help my immune system out and maybe this is as bad as I’ll get…it’s worth a shot!
