Try It Tuesday: Skinny Cow

5 Jul

It’s summer and in my world that means a shift in desserts and treats. I tend to lean more towards fruit pies / tart type things and of course ice cream. Can’t go wrong with ice cream!

However, there is nothing remotely healthy or helpful to weight loss in ice cream. I figured I was going to have to give it up and was actively trying to not think about it but warmer days came to us and all I wanted was soft serve ice cream…or an ice cream sandwich…or a sundae…basically any form of ice cream lol

Then I remembered Skinny Cow! I don’t normally buy Skinny Cow items because they are suuuper expensive and in the past I tended to lean towards buying me some Ben & Jerry’s, they are two of my favourite men. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Well guess what happened last week? Skinny Cow was on sale! Yay! So there I stood, in the ice cream aisle with my WW app open scanning each different products barcode to see juuuuust how bad for me Skinny Cow is.

Lemme tell ya, it ain’t good!

I eventually chose the Chocolate Peanut Butter Ice Cream Sandwiches because, well, how could I not? Chocolate and peanut butter? Yes puh-lease! ๐Ÿ˜€

 

I know some people like to say that Skinny Cow isn’t as good as “real” ice cream, to those people I say hush up! You are obviously delusional because these taste great!

They are a perfectly acceptable size, in fact I am surprised they aren’t smaller. The cookie part is soft and sticks to your hand just like a so-called real ice cream sandwich, the ice cream is freakin delicious. I mean c’mon, they are real and beyond that there is a bit less guilt when eating them, which makes me a happy camper lol

They come in a variety of flavours, there is a cookie & cream, a regular vanilla, and I want to say there was one other flavour but maybe I am wrong…I was standing in that aisle so long scanning my brain might have gotten a little frost bite. ๐Ÿ˜›

Skinny Cow of course has other items, just walk down the ice cream aisle at your local grocery store and you’ll see them. I haven’t tried any of those but summer is long, I still have time!

Sidenote: for anybody on Weight Watchers, one ice cream sandwich is 6 smart points.

Run Turtle! Run!

4 Mar

I am not a runner. People think I should be good at it cause I have long legs. That’s like saying I should be good at basketball because I am tall. Neither of those presumptions makes any sense! *rolls eyes*

Despite this I decided to sign up for the BMO Run in May…I should not be allowed on the internet after midnight! lol So, due to a deep rooted fear I will either (1) not be able to complete the run, (2) be the slooooowest person in the run, (3) die while attempting the run or (4) a combo of all three, I figure I should do some sort of training. Ya know, run a bit, work my way up to the distance I will be running in May.

run meme

Of course there is the side benefit of (hopefully) losing weight while I take on this whole running thing. I may hate running but even I know it is wicked awesome cardio. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tuesdays are my Saturdays and I usually spend them doing an amazing imitation of a sloth until I meet up with friends at night but this Tuesday I made no plans with friends for the night and gave myself a whopping two goals to accomplish.

(1) Eat healthy

(2) Exercise

Seems pretty simple right? I mean, it’s only two freakin things to accomplish in one day, who can’t manage that??

I feel that for the most part I ate in a healthy way, I’m not very good at judging if food is healthy or not due to the fact that I have so many “food rules” floating in my brain, some of them contradict each other, and I’m never sure which rules to follow. sigh. Why do there have to be so many rules?

My first meal of the day was a whole wheat wrap filled with two slices of turkey bacon, sauteed mushrooms, two scrambled eggs (seasoned with dill) and about 6 sweet pickles. Oh, and I spread two triangles of Light Laughing Cow cheese on the inside of the wrap. Soooo yummy! I also had a banana. I know I should have used only one egg but it was a big wrap and I accidentally added too much water to the first egg so when I poured it in to the pan it looked not-so-great, it seemed a wise decision to add a second egg…even if it is gluttonous. sigh.

I then procrastinated on the going for exercise part of my day, of course! lol ๐Ÿ˜›

I originally thought I’d digest for a half hour or so then either go for a run or go for a session at the gym. I was good with either and actually kinda wanted to do both. I wanted to run because of needing to train for the run in May but I wanted to go to the gym because I feel I have lost some of my upper body strength and I want to build it back up, what with it being dragon boat season an all.

It was sleeting so that made the decision for me, I’d jog to the gym, work out, jog home and feel righteous lol Well…I slacked, as is my way lol I watched tv, played games on my iPad, cuddled with the cat, thought about how I should get up and exercise but didn’t actually move from my seat lol convinced myself it was ok if I didn’t go right away cause my gym is open till 11pm today so I can always go later evening if I want.

The slacking lasted so long I got hungry, oops! I didn’t want a meal though so I made some toast with peanut butter and honey on it. Bad I know! CarbsCarbsCarbs, ugh, why do I have to love you so much?? I decided that if I was going to continue slacking then I had to increase my fluid intake, at least do something good for my body, so I made more tea lol and drank a couple big glasses of water. I used to drink water like it was going out of style but I somehow got out of that habit – I should really fix that…note to self, drink more water!…maybe that can be my goal for tomorrow? ๐Ÿ˜›

Eventually I got off my ass and got ready to go work out, it had stopped sleeting so I decided to go running, I wanted to use the MapMyRun App I had installed the day prior and I really wanted to use the ArmPocket I bought a bit ago. It didn’t occur to me until I was outside locking my door that it was pitch black outside, way past sunset. Did this deter me from running? Nope.

The MapMyRun had a route starting near me that was a bit over 5km, I thought that’d be a good place to start. If I’d gone in daylight the route would have been way better lol It took me on a non-lit, deserted path that had river on one side and forest on the other, I felt like I was in an episode of Criminal Minds and was half convinced I was going to die due to my stupidity but obviously nothing happened. The map route however, was flawed, erg. I got to this one section and it wanted me to cross the street to go do a loop through a park, well, the street it wanted me to cross was the highway, at a section there is nowhere to cross and I’m sorry but I may do a lot of stupid things but jaywalking across a highway is not one of them! Also, signs for the park the map said I would find across the street indicated it was actually on the side of the street I was on but farther down. I was mightily confused because oh man do I have seriously lacking navigation skills. I opted for turning around and heading home, not through the deserted scary trail section though, phew! I was around the 4km mark at that point and figured for sure I’d hit 5km by the time I got home, turns out I ran 6.80km. Which I am aware is super short for most people but I’m happy with it. At the end I felt like I could have kept going which I take as a good sign for my next run, and the run in May!

My dinner was a chicken breast stuffed with cheese and broccoli, sliced pan cooked yam, roasted yellow peppers, vermicelli noodles with a bit of sweet and sour sauce mixed in and some sweet pickles. Why the pickles? Cause I like em. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think it was healthy, but again, not certain because while I can argue that it is, I can also find ways to argue that it isn’t, sigh. It was tasty though…if that counts? ๐Ÿ˜›

dinner - healthy? not healthy? who knows!

dinner – healthy? not healthy? who knows!

A couple hours after dinner I ate a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich, man those are good. In the world of Weight Watchers they are 2 points which makes it seem like not such a bad snack? I’m still feeling kinda hungry but no more food for me today, instead lots more water. Mmm water!…said no one ever! lol ๐Ÿ˜‰

Today

11 Aug

Today I ate:

46 grams Just Right cereal = 3 points

1 cup 1% milk = 1 point

2 pcs Bodywise toast = 1 point

1/2 tbls whipped peanut butter = 1 point

100 grams beefless tips = 2 points

1 cup Minute Rice Long Grains and Wild Rice = 4 points

mixed veggies = 0 points

21 grams mini breton = 2 points

2 light babybell = 2 points

1/2 cup Maple Flavoured Baked Beans = 2 points

1 Skinny Cow chocolate fudge brownie ice cream = 2 points

1 Kashi pumpkin pie flavoured granola bar = 2 points

Total Points Eaten = 22

Exercise Points Earned = 7

I had a perfectly ordinary normal day but I feel really good about it. I woke up a little later then I wanted but earlier then yesterday lol, I went to Boxerfit Class and earned my 7 exercise points, I ate relatively healthy and well within my points (only ate 2 exercise points!) – nothing crazy exciting happened today, nothing all that fun to write about on my blog but that’s ok cause what I wanted to accomplish I did…uh, that would be the eating my points without a food screw up and exercising. ๐Ÿ™‚

Small goals perhaps but hey, if it’s a small goal then I have a better chance of reaching it. lol. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Twice In One Day??

8 Jun

My poor abused body – all my leg muscles are shaking mildly and the mere thought of getting up off the couch to go get a fresh cup of tea makes me whimper. lol. Today I did the unknown – I exercised…Twice! Two times in one day! I don’t know if hell has frozen over or if it was a miracle but I somehow managed to get my lazy arse off the couch and moving on 2 seperate occaisions today. *groan* I have a feeling I am so gonna be hurting tomorrow…but hey, who cares? That’s tomorrow! lol

I had wanted to do this crazy exercise-twice-in-one-day-thing on Monday but it didn’t work out so instead my first try at this was today. Freakishly enough, I just may do this again…maybe…we’ll see how I feel tomorrow lol.

I brought my mom and dad with me when I went hiking today, by this I mean my mom called me right as I was lacing up my runners and if I didn’t go hiking right at that specific time I wouldn’t be able to do it at all so I took my phone with me – something I never do! My hiking time is “my time”, I listen to my iPod, cringe whenever I come in to contact with nature, and basically take the time to focus on me, shrug. Somedays there isn’t much to focus on, lol, so I just enjoy the music, but some days you need some time to sort things out in your head, plan something that is coming up, figure out how you are gonna deal with something or say/write something. shrug. But yeah, so my poor parents had to hear me huffing and puffing while we were talking, it probably sounded like I was hiking to my death lol.

But I survived and had a yummy meal of salmon, mashed yam and mixed veggies while resting and reminding myself I wanted to exercise twice in one day, it was a goal, it would not kill me – probably. ๐Ÿ˜‰

On my way to Boxerfit I stopped and picked up the parcel my cousin sent me from England, that boy, he’s so awesome! I got a box of Bristows Clotted Cream Fudge, a chocolate bar that is currently in the fridge (and if you think I’m getting up to read the name of it and pissing off my muscles you got another thing comin! lol) and a pair of socks with the Union Jack. The fudge has a picture of Will and Kate because it is a commemorate box of fudge for the wedding ๐Ÿ™‚ I love it!

I had to leave earlier then normal for boxerfit because of having to make it to the post office before it closed so once I got to the gym I had about 45 minutes to kill which was perfect cause I had taken the sides for the second scene I want to do for my demo reel and I worked on the lines while waiting for 7pm to roll around. It’s nice to know you can practice your lines without someone overhearing you – at least for me, shrug.

I’m fairly certain the guy who runs the Boxerfit class is trying to kill me, well, not just me, all of us. lol. Todays class he had us doing these running drills, you run as fast as you can from spot A to spot B, at spot B you do 5 push ups, then you run back to A and do 5 full sit ups, then you run back to spot B and do 5 squats, then you run back to spot A and do 5 burpees. You’d think that was bad enough but then you had to do it all over again only do 4 of each, then again but 3 of everything…I’m sure you’ve figured out the pattern here…see what I mean about trying to kill us? *rolls eyes* He timed us and is gonna make us do it all over again in a month and apparently we will all haveย faster times…he’s nuts! This was on top of all our normal stuff so by the end of the class I was soaked in sweat, yeah I know, gross right? When I got in to my suv to drive home I really felt how wet my clothes were, ugh, I made sure to sit upright the whole drive home cause I didn’t want the sweat to soak in to the fabric of the seat. lol.

I have a job interview tomorrow morning for a law firm, can you get less artistic? lol. It’s at 10am which seems early to me cause I have been sleeping in almost everyday but I suppose it’s an ok time cause after that is done I will be running some errands and hopefully getting home by about 1pm – that’ll give me time to hike before meeting up with KL for our final Dragon Boat training session before the festival this weekend.

Oh what an active week this has been!

I have eaten 19 points today, and earned a crazy high number of exercise pointsย – 14 of them! A record for me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Sooo, since I have so many exercise points I am about to eat a Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich (2 points) which will have me eating a whopping 1 exercise point. Not so bad that! ๐Ÿ˜€

Re-Write

20 Aug

You wouldn’t believe how long it has taken me to write this post, eesh. I started last night and kept rambling about a totally different topic then what I was trying to write about. So I decided to write on a new topic and that ended up in confused ramblings too. lol. Apparently last night I really needed to ramble. ๐Ÿ˜› It was getting so late I decided to save the draft I had going and hit the sack – figured it wouldn’t hurt to leave it till tonight. shrug.

So here I am, I completely erased the draft and am starting over…I will attempt to not ramble. lol.

Since all my attempts at introspection ended up in utter nonsense I will keep this focused and non-deep. This week has sucked – points wise that is. Saturday and Sunday I didn’t eat all my points, actually, I didn’t eat them all on Monday either…Tuesday was fine, ate all my points so yah! lol. However, Wednesday was way under…sigh. Thursday was spot on and today I am only 0.5 under so that’s ok. The Weight Watcher rules clearly state to Eat All Your Points!!!! If you don’t eat them all it means you are undereating for the day and that can screw up your metabolism and make you not only not lose weight but gain it. Crap. Now, if I undereat one day a week that doesn’t bother me, it is usually because I wasn’t feeling well or plans messed up my eating schedule and really, one day a week isn’t that big a deal. shrug. But 5 days of not eating all my points?!?! That is excessive. I didn’t feel hungry on those days; didn’t feel deprived or wanting for anything but that isn’t a good indicator of what my body needs. I am well aware (now) that your body isn’t always as smart as you think it is; your body might be saying it is hungry but you have ingested enough calories for the day, it could also seem to be telling you that you aren’t hungry but you haven’t eaten nearly enough. How the body can be so wrong I don’t know, but all the so called experts say it can be and who am I to disagree?

Malibu, the person at work who started Weight Watchers last Friday…she has only been on the program for a week and she lost 4 pounds! How the fuck did that happen?? It took me over 2 weeks to manage that…grr. I asked her what she did, if she exercised etc and she said she just has an easy time to lose 15 pounds or so but after that she plateaus and can’t seem to shift anymore weight. She shrugged off those 4 pounds like it was no big deal, like losing it was a breeze. I am so jealous, sigh. To top it off she came to me when the bday cake we had at work was tempting her and I convinced her to not cheat…I wish I hadn’t succeeded in helping her not cheat, maybe then next week she wouldn’t lose as much. lol.

Oh, had the best salad today from the Salad Loop…nasty dressing though. ick. I thought I’d try a dressing I have never had so I took some Blue Cheese dressing. You put the dressing in a little container which is great cause I keep the dressing in the little container instead of pouring it on my salad and then dip my forkful of salad in to the dressing, this way I use way less. ๐Ÿ˜€ When I was putting the dressing in to the little container I saw it was way oily, hmm, I was tempted to put it back but there were too many people around watching so, shrug, I kept it. I ate some of my salad with the dressing but couldn’t bring myself to like the flavour of it, I ended up eating more then half the salad with out the dressing – it’s a good thing I had great toppings on the salad so it wasn’t boring! lol. For hours after I ate all I could taste was that stupid dressing – ugh – I think next time I will stick with the Light Ranch. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am worried about my weigh in tomorrow –ย I seem to write that every week but what can I say, every week it is true. shrug. This past week I underate way too often, had 2 horrible fat days and today I just feel heavy. Oh, and I am demoralized by Malibu losing so much weight in one week. I was really hoping that this weeks weigh in would put me at a total weight loss of 10 lbs or more but I don’t think that is gonna happen. Blarg. I know I should be happy with what I have lost so far (even though today I feel as big as ever) but it is hard to maintain the happy feelings from a good weigh in throughout the week…by the night before weigh in I have almost always lost the giddy happy feeling and am just worried about what the scale will say. I hate that scale.

Let’s see what I ate today:

3/4 cup Blueberry Special K = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 1/2cup strawberries = 1 point

Salad from Salad Loop = 6 points

ย ย ย  – 1 hard boiled egg, 1/4 cup cottage cheese, mixed veggies, artificial crab, chickpeas, sunflower seeds, grated cheddar cheese, dressing

1 cup cherries = 1 point

1 medium slush = 2 points

1 peanut butter and raspberry jam sandwich = 5 points

ย ย ย  – 2 pcs bread, 1 tbls light peanut butter, 1 tbls raspberry jam

1/2 cup mashed yam = 1.5 points

1 Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwich = 2 points

My total for the day is 21.5 points. I am ok with being the 0.5 points under, I don’t have anything that is worth only a half point and I am not going to go over my points in an attempt to hit my points…although, I have more then all my flex points still available to me. lol. Ah well, it’s too late to fix what I messed up with this past week and it’s for sure too late tonight to eat anything else. Wish me luck on the scale tomorrow!

Back in to the rhythm

16 Aug

Have you ever noticed what a funny looking word ‘rhythm’ is? I had to go double check the spelling because it just looked too funny in my title; according to google I spelled it right so here’s hoping google didn’t steer me wrong! lol

I was back in my eating rhythm today (thanks to work, sigh), up at the crack of dawn (well, ok, 6am but it felt like the crack of dawn…course I don’t know when dawn is right now so maybe I am right? :P) and off to the office (hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to work we go!) where I had to sit in air conditioning aaaaalllllll day. I hate a/c, whoever invented it is just mean, and whomever implemented it in the building I work in is sadistic. I want to enjoy the heat of summer not spend my days wearing sweaters and drinking tea comparing goose bumps with the girl I sit next to! No wonder adults stopped having fun in everyday experiences, the wonder and joy of the world gets sucked out of you the longer you have to sit in air conditioned rooms toiling at work instead of enjoying the summer and going out and playing. *rolls eyes* adults are so stupid – myself included since I am (for now anyways!) joining in with this stupid practice of wasting my summer.ย  I can’t wait until I lose this weight and can finally get me another agent who will then get me kick ass auditions that will land me paying acting roles where I can love my work and have summers off (unless I do movies then I will be working at all different times of the year)…

…and with that segue, to my weight loss! Charge it! lol

I found out today that Malibu (a lady at work) has also decided to join Weight Watchers, however, she makes more money then me so she actually joined Weight Watchers while I am using hand me down books and info from my mother and taking this wonderous little journey on my own. She joined online and so far seems to be enjoying it – she joined friday so it’s not like she’s been on it long. She seems to think that my willpower to resist all the treats at work comes from being on WW and since she has been cheating practically everyday on the diet plan she was trying she seems to think that joining WW will boost her willpower in to high gear and bam! she’ll lose weight. I don’t know how I feel about this…which seems petty, I know I should be happy that I apparently provided some inspiration and now other people are trying the same program but…it’s my program! I was the only one at work doing WW and I kinda liked it that way, and well…she can actually afford to join, which means she’ll get all the benefits of being involved in WW that I don’t get cause I can’t afford it. It doesn’t seem fair that someone who joined WW cause of me gets all the benefits of being a member and me, the person who (accidentally) convinced her to join still can’t afford to join. sigh. So now you know, I am vain and petty! ๐Ÿ˜›

I guess I was enjoying being the only one at work on this particular program; it was sorta my domain and I am territorial and don’t like sharing so I figure this blast of petty-ness comes from that and hey, kudos to Malibu for trying a healthy program to lose weight…man I hope she doesn’t lose weight faster then me, that’ll just blow! lol

On a happier note, I cooked something new today! I was quite excited about it (still am really) but when talking to JF on the phone discovered that my new cooking accomplishment is not that big a deal in the land of people-who-have-been-cooking-dinner-for-years. lol. I made…ready? Corn on the cob! …no, that is not a joke! ๐Ÿ˜› I have never made it before but there was a stand selling fresh Chilliwack Sweet Corn on my route home so I decided to buy corn cause I thought it’d go well with the hot weather we are having. Who doesn’t like corn on the cob with dinner on a hot night? I just wanted one and the guy looks at me like I am crazy and says they are sold by the dozen…uh, that still doesn’t stop me from only needing one. Eventually we settled on three which now I am glad about cause the one I had tonight was deeeelish and I am looking forward to having another tomorrow night with diner. ๐Ÿ™‚ I mentioned to the guy selling it I was going to google how to cook it and he said put it in boiling water for 3 minutes. Nice, easy, I can do that, this is looking promising. Here is where the really sad part comes in (sad as in you’re gonna laugh at me kind of sad lol). On the drive home Iย peek in the bag at the corn all excited about my little treasure and practically swerve cause my corn doesn’t look like corn, it’s green! Green?!?! Say wha?? When I got home I did what all self-respecting adults do, I called my mom. ๐Ÿ˜›ย  Told her about buying the corn etc and then asked what was wrong with my corn cause it is green. She starts laughing and says that is the husk and I have to take that off and the yellow corn that I am used to seeing is underneath. Oooooohhh, hmm, somebody should write that on the corn…er, husk. So then a perfectly natural question on my part…do I put it in the boiling water with the husk still on? Got quite the stern NO! on that one. After detailed explanations on what to do at every stage of the corn cooking event I got off the phone and decided to put my newfound knowledge in to action…and I made corn on the cob!!! It turned out perfect! Oh, and I was right, it was a great side to my dinner on this hot summer night…it goes great with salmon. ๐Ÿ˜€

My food today:

3/4 cup Special K Blueberry = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 cup grapes = 1 point

1 piece toast = 1 point

1/4 cup Maple Baked Beans = 1 point

1 babybell cheese = 1 point

1/4 cup couscous with corn = 3 points

1 cup cherries = 1 point

1 Dill and Herb Salmon Steak = 3 points

1 corn on the cob = 1 point

1 piece toast = 1 point

2 tsp margarine = 2 points (used on toast and on corn)

1 Skinny Cow ice cream sandwich = 2 points

1 pck Weight Watchers Cheddar Twists = 2 points

Total points used 22! See? Back in the rhythm. ๐Ÿ˜€ I could have done without that last snack but I figured what the hell, eat something, use up the points and be done with it. I think I have had 4 days in a row now where I didn’t use all my points so it was nice to actually use them all again.ย  I am a little worried I won’t lose weight cause of not using all my points but 2 of those 4 days I was sick and the other 2 days were the weekend and I always struggle to use up all my points on weekends. Ah well, nothing I can do about it now. ๐Ÿ™‚

Rotting fruit and overly large pants

15 Aug

What did I do today? Let’s see, I ran errands, watched a movie and revelled in the knowledge that my Lulu Lemon pants no longer fit. teehee. happy dance!

Now, I shouldn’t be so happy about this, these pants cost me a mint and they are one of my most comfy casual pants but hey, I like knowing I am shrinking out of my clothes. ๐Ÿ˜€ย  I have found that my work clothes are fitting looser, awesome, and a pair of jeans I couldn’t fit in to I can now wear…the jeans admittedly are a bit snug still but I am getting there. The Lulu Lemon pants really made me realize how my clothes are fitting differently. They are longer now, because they don’t have as much to get caught on lol, andย  all through my thighs, hips and abdominal area they are noticeably looser. In some areas it’s not so bad, looser but still ok but other areas are loose enough that the pants don’t look all that good on me anymore, sigh. If I was clothes shopping and tried these pants on in this size I wouldn’t buy them because they’d be too big, *slightly psychotic giggle* but since I already own them I wore them anyways cause I just can’t bring myself to not wear them…seriously, they weren’t cheap! Lulu is an investment, if they are treated properly (cold wash, hang to dry) they can last for years and they always go back to their shape after washing (I know this cause a friend wore hers when preggies and they fit perfect after she lost all her baby weight) so even though they are expensive they last for ages…but they aren’t going to shrink down to whatever size I end up…this could be a problem…

Once they for sure become to big to wear I won’t replace them cause what would be the point? Like I am going to buy a pair for each new size I become, ha! I think that new Lulu pants can be my treat for when I lose all my weight…I have been trying to think of what to treat myself with…I was thinking I’d finally allow myself to eat McDonald’s (I am still going to do that! lol) but a new pair of stupidly expensive pants is a pretty good final weigh in prize…don’t ya think?

On another note I seem to be having bad luck with my fruit lately, it keeps going bad before I can eat it, ick! I think it is because of the heat…it’s making everyone lethargic and killing my fruit. Poor fruit. It started with the plums…my landlord gave me two huuuuge bowls of plums from his plum tree that I was going to turn in to jam, well, not gonna happen cause they all rotted, yack! Then today my pineapple was bad, a nectarine had gone soft, some cherries split and were pussing and a section of my grapes were fuzzy and attached to each other. All in all, that’s a lot of fruit to find bad in one day. Obviously I got rid of it all, sadly not before tasting the pineapple and one of the bad cherries, that was oh so pleasant lemme tell ya. lol All of the fruit except for the grapes and the plums were in the fridge so I am not sure what happened there, shrug, I will hafta be more careful though cause fruit is expensive! Ever notice how healthy things are more expensive then the bad for us stuff? So not fair! ๐Ÿ˜›

I did find a new ice cream snack this weekend, it is Nestle’s The Skinny Cow Vanilla Sandwich. Basically it is an ice cream sandwich that is “healthy”, or at least a healthier option if you really want an ice cream sandwich…

Mmm! Mmm! Mmm! Ice Cream Sandwiches for 2 points!

When I told the roomie about them she made an icky face and implied they are not good so I was a bit worried but I really liked the one I ate today. It tasted exactly how an ice cream sandwich should and it is just 2 points; pretty awesome! The packaging actually tells you that each sandwich is only 2 points, I double checked of course with my Weight Watchers points slider and they really are only 2 points each. Sure, someday I will only have 1 point left and really want one of the sandwiches and then I will be bitching cause they are too many points, lol, but for now 2 points per sandwich seems pretty rockin to me. ๐Ÿ˜€

Alrighty, so today I ate:

2 pieces of toast = 2 points

2 tsp margarine = 2 points

1 Thinsations pckg Chocolate covered pretzels = 2 points

1 small Iced Capp = 3 points

1 chocolate timbit = 2 points

1 grilled cheese sandwich

ย ย ย  – 2 pieces of bread = 2 points

ย ย ย  – 2 Kraft cheese slices = 2 points

ย ย  – 2 slices turkey bacon = 2 points

ย ย ย  – 3 tomato slices = 0 points

ย ย ย  – 1 tblsp Light Miracle Whip = 0 points

1 cup cherries = 1 point

1 Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwich = 2 points

That puts me at 20 points for the day. I just can’t eat anymore today, it is too hot and too late and I am too full to fit anything else in me but I figure 20 points is ok since I wasn’t all that active today. ๐Ÿ™‚ And now I am off to figure out what to put together for my lunch for tomorrow…oh how I miss the days of running out for fast food, sigh.
