Better Late than Never?

I’m up late tonight. I just finished Yoga though!

Today didn’t start out with a jog. You see, I woke up with my stomach GROWLING last night around midnight. I fed myself one of these:


Add 2pts to yesterday’s total!

The problem with me eating in the night is that it tends to give me nightmares. Usually someone or several people are trying to kill me in these dreams. I can laugh about them the next day but it freaks me out in the night. I wake up sweating and panicking (sometimes crying) and can’t get back to sleep (I used to get night terrors as a kid… and I’m not so sure that’s not what these are now!). Last night wasn’t so bad, I was only up for an hour or so.  I was really disoriented this morning though and didn’t get on the treadmill.  In fact, I totally slept in.  My alarm went off and I couldn’t get snooze to work… once I realized I had my TV remote in my hand and was trying to use that to turn off my alarm clock… I figured out where snooze was and used it a few too many times!

So, breakfast was quick.  Luckily I had a sample from last week’s Weight Watchers meeting

I threw it in a cup with some Almond Breeze (2pts total).  Gotta say – I won’t be buying this any time soon.

Luckily I had meals packed from last night.  No photos unfortunately.

AM snack was 1/2c ff cottage cheese (2), 1/2c homemade granola (2) and 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder (1) – HOLY CRAP this was a GREAT snack. In fact, I think it would be a fabulous dessert. It was really filling. I ate it at 10am and still wasn’t hungry for lunch at 1pm.  I DID eat at that point though.

Lunch: Annie’s mac n’ cheese w/ veggies (5)

Looked similar to this, minus the chicken and add some steamed spinach:DSCN4639

PM Snack: 1/2c greek yogurt (1), 1/2c granola (2)

Looked similar to this:DSCN4625

Dinner: 1/2c quinoa (1), 1/2c butternut squash soup (1), dessert… 1 scoop chocolate protein powder (2), 1tsp almond butter (1)

AND, in keeping with the honesty theme… I had 1 piece of cheese (1) – light old cheddar

Total: 21pts

Tonight was some dishes, some TV and some yoga. I am going to keep up with the yoga and see how flexible I can get!  I am enjoying it. I turned on an extra heater in the living room and managed to sweat a bit!

So, tomorrow I must venture to a new Weight Watchers location. My meeting moved to down the road on Monday nights. The problem? I work late on Mondays!  So, I’m going to stop at a Loblaws location on my way home from work and check it out. I’ve been SEVERAL years with the same leader so I’m not sure if I’m ready to part with her or find another one of her meetings another day. Time will tell!

Oh, and to answer Lynn's question about the Greek yogurt.  Here’s the stats:

3/4c is 110cal, 0.4g fat, 0g fibre and 20g protein.  So… 1/2c works out to being 73cal, 0 fat and 0 fibre… 1pt!
