Tattoo Touch Up and Tuna

27 Sep

I had two scary experiences today: (1) getting my tatt touched up and (2) trying to eat tuna again. I was equally scared of both. lol 😛

It may seem silly to be nervous about getting the tatt touched up, I mean, hello? it’s not like I didn’t know what to expect, right? Well, that was sorta the problem…I knew what to expect and was not looking forward to it, ugh. I so do not enjoy the experience of that needle going in and out super fast *shudder* – makes you wonder why I got the tatt in the first place! lol. I almost didn’t get the touch up…I’d already put it off for about a month or so, but it’s like how beauty is pain, if you get a tatt ya gotta man up and get the touch ups, right? Damn responsibility and follow through, sigh.

Then a bigger fear…dun dun dun…tuna! I attempted eating it a while ago, look for my post about eating cat food lol, and promptly gave up on it but friends at work convinced me to try again. The kind I tried last time was pre-flavoured and the sandwich was oh so nasty, double ugh, a huge part of it was texture (the texture of tuna is just horrible!) but the taste was also nasty. This time I bought non-flavoured normal tuna and mixed it with some light miracle whip, finely chopped onion and, um, hmm…yeah, that was it. lol. Stuck it on bread with some sliced cucumber and a cheese slice and voila! Tuna sandwich. 🙂 It wasn’t half bad…kinda. I still feel like I ate cat food for dinner but I think that is a mental thing cause it tasted alright and the texture wasn’t as bad this time. So yah! I found a way to eat tuna, a food that is stupid good for you and way low in points. I am not at the point where I could just flake some on to a salad but that’s ok, I am taking baby steps here. 😀

Today I ate:

29 grams Honey Nut Cheerios = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 banana = 2 points

1 nectarine = 1 point

1/2 cup mashed yam = 1.5 points

1/2 cup BBQ Chipotle baked beans = 2 points

1 piece toast = 1 point

2 triangles light laughing cow cheese = 1 point

1 Activia Yogurt = 2 points

1 cup Red Lentil and Veg Soup = 3 points

Tuna Sandwich

    – 2 pieces bread = 2 points

    – 1 cheese slice = 1 point

    – tuna mix (tuna, onion and light miracle whip) = 1 point

1 weight watchers pckg Pretzel Thins = 2 points

Total points used 22.5, yah! Used a uber small amount of flex points (0.5 a flex point to be precise) and am comfortably full. 🙂

Figuring out the points for the tuna mix was weird, each can is 120 grams drained, a serving is 55 grams so almost half. The nutirional info is for 55 grams so it’s 1 point per 55 grams. I used 2 tbls light miracle whip which is 1 point. Oh, and on my sandwich I used 1/4 of the mix. Soooooo…1/4 of the miracle whip is 0.25 of a point and 1/4 of the tuna is 0.50 a point which equals 0.75 of a point sooooo I rounded up to 1 point per 1/4 of the total tuna mix. Make sense? I told you it was weird! 😛 I probably should have used one more flex point just to make sure I ate enough for the day but I feel alright so I’m not gonna push it.

My lesson for today? Vanity is painful and scary but so what? shrug. Face it and in the end you may be surprised…the needle may not hurt too badly this time and the food may not taste as gross as you thought…you’re not gonna know until you try! Oh, and no matter how much it hurts, it’s not gonna kill ya so suck it up princess and think about how you’ll be happy with the results! 😀
