Happy Family Day!

Happy Family Day to all in Ontario!  I apologize to those of you who didn’t have a statutory holiday today.

I slept in again today (I am going to HATE my alarm tomorrow… after 4 days of sleeping in until 8 and 9am!).  I did some relaxing, some couch/TV time, some cleaning (I LOVE clean floors and a clean kitchen. These 2 things are difficult to accomplish when a. you live in a small apartment without much cupboard room and b. you have a dog and a bird – floors are NEVER clean).

I also managed a jog this evening!  It was the BEST jog I’ve had since Christmas. The first 20min were tough and I wanted to quit, but I pushed through and made it to 45min!

Here’s what I ate today

Breakfast: 1c mixed fruit – mango, pineapple and strawberry (1), 1/2c Greek yogurt (1), 1/4c. Kashi toasted berry cereal (1)

Lunch was leftover lasagna casserole, 1c beefed up with some extra tomatoes and mushrooms (7)

Snack was 3 baked weight watcher tortillas (3) and just a teeny a taste of hummus on 2 of the chips (0)

The next snack was going to be a berry smoothie.  I threw some mango, strawberry (2pts) and a whole ripe banana (2pts) into the blender with some water. It came out too thin. I threw in some guar gum and xanthan gum to thicken it. It suddenly became like ice cream. It was so. freaking. good. I drizzled about 1tsp of agave on it. I only ate half of it for snack (2)

After my jog I wasn’t hungry for dinner but knew I should eat something… so I added 1 full scoop of vanilla protein powder to the leftover berry ice cream and had it (4)!!

So, today’s total points = 19

Water = 3L – but I’m going to have a bit more.

I usually watch the Bachelor on Mondays (yes, I’m one of THOSE girls!) when I get home from my late evening at work… but the Olympics are definitely winning out tonight. Especially watching the speed skating rink drama now… Go Parrott!

GO CANADA GO!
