Oh Yawn

2 Feb

Soooooo tired *yawn* I had the worst sleep last night, went to bed late and kept waking up all through the night, ugh. I hate when that happens. ๐Ÿ˜ฆย  I was out at the movies last night with a friend, we saw Blue Valentine, have you seen it? It rocks and I totally recommend it – I paid the price for going out last night by having a killer tired day but hey, you can’t stop having a social life just so you can get a good nights sleep…right?

Usually when I am uber tired I crave carbs – quick energy ya know! But not today, weird but nice. I didn’t have any trouble sticking to my points today and I wasn’t craving any not allowed foods. Maybe part of it was cause all I wanted to do was have a nap, my body wasn’t wanting fuel it was wanting sleep lol. ๐Ÿ˜€

So you’d think I’d come home and have a nap right? Nope! Not my style. As much as I may want to nap I don’t – naps just make me feel draggy and more tired afterwards. I am hoping by staying awake and being active (not exercise active but doing stuff active) I will sleep better tonight – I’m crossing my fingers about this. ๐Ÿ˜›

My activity this evening? Baking! Yah! I made banana chocolate chip cake – I never know if I should call it cake or bread, I bake it in loaf pans and it gets sliced like bread…and some people warm up their slice and put margarine on it…all that screams bread to me but the original recipe is my mother’s and she put it in a cake dish and it was cut in to small squares and was definitely a cake…so uh, hmm…I still don’t know, shrug. It doesn’t really matter I s’pose, all that matters is that it is a well loved recipe I like making and people love eating the results. ๐Ÿ™‚ The best part of baking for me is seeing people enjoy what I make – well that and the actual process of creating the baked goods…it’s just so much fun!

I forgot my food tracker at work, oops, let’s see if I can remember what I ate today:

1 pckg Instant Quaker Oatmeal = 3 points

1 orange = 1 point

1 cup Fire Roasted Sweet Pepper & Tomato soup = 2 points

1 piece bread = 1 point

1 Activia yogurt = 2 points

raw carrots = 0 points

1 Bodywise Bagel = 2 points

1 cheese slice = 1 point

light miracle whip, mustard = 0 points

1 scrambled egg =ย 2 points

1 slice deli turkey = 0 points

mixed cooked veggies = 0 points

1 banana bran muffin = 2 points

1/2 cup peppermint candy ice cream = 4 points

Total points eaten is 21. ๐Ÿ˜€

Yes, you read the last food item in the list correct, I ate ice cream! hehehehe. Oh and you know what? It was gooooood! I saw it in the grocery store, it was uber cheap and a limited time flavour, what can I say – advertisers know how to snag me. lol. I figured if I am careful with it I can enjoy it without screwing up my diet and today I did ok. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sure, 4 points for something that is a snack and not beneficial nutrient wise is kinda stupid but sometimes a girl just needs a treat. lol. Oh, fyi, the ice cream was strawberry with candy cane crushed up in to it, wow! Who came up with that? Cause that idea was fricken brilliant! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Is ice cream dairy? If so, it’s a GOOD thing to eat! – at least in my opinion…haha! And shouldn’t the strawberry part count as fruit?
