Good day.

Today was a good day. I don't know that there was anything that made it specifically good, but I just feel like I made good decisions all day, and I feel good about it.

I woke up and made myself some breakfast. I cooked an individual cup of egg beaters (I love those things!) with a slice of pepperjack singles melted in them. That's my favorite way to eat them! Then I also had a bowl of cereal w/double the milk.

Had kind of a dull morning at work, but instead of snacking when bored, I drank and drank and drank! I had 6 glasses down by lunchtime! I did have a snack mid-morning... one of my hershey's 100 calorie wafer bars. I love those things! It's a perfect fix of chocolate!

Lunchtime came, and I tried a new Smart Ones... turkey with garlic potatoes. It was GREAT! And only 4 points! I had myself a salad & a tomato as well. Then had a 2 point ice cream bar for dessert.

Afternoon came, and I took a couple clients to the local apple orchard. I did indulge in an apple donut... my first donut in months! I enjoyed it, but it wasn't as good as I remember donuts being!

I knew I wouldn't be cooking dinner tonight b/c I had errands to run, so I picked up Subway for Mike & I on the way home. He's happy that I'm eating more Subway b/c he really likes it... I didn't used to eat it much b/c when I lived in the dorms at college, that's pretty much all I ate, and I got burnt out on it! I had some goldfish w/my sandwich too... love them little things!

Then tonight, I made some more 1 point cake cookies! I tried them w/Pineapple cake this time! I got the recipe from Trisha, you can see it here. I think I like them better than the chocolate ones. I also have some spice cake to try them with next time!

So yeah, nothing too special happened today, but it just felt like a good day. I went to bed really early last night (8:30) and woke up this morning at the first beep of the alarm at 6 w/o needing to hit snooze 3 times! Getting a good night's sleep definately makes a difference!

Tomorrow will be exercise day 2 for this week (my WW week goes from wednesday-tuesday). Will probably just do a morning walk. Another good thing that's been going on is that my time on my routes is improving! A route that used to take me 30 minutes to walk only took me 24 minutes yesterday! That's a great improvement!

Anyway, I guess I didn't really have much to talk about, so I'll quit blabbing now... time to read me some Dr. Phil!

OMG I used to eat subway every day at ISU. and waking up early to go to class and smelling the bread as I walked out the door...makes me want to vomit! but I am glad you had a good day today. looove eggbeaters and pepperjack cheese. I think you and I have similar tastes in cheese: we like pepperjack and feta!

Dee said...

wohoo! Great that you had a good day. Doesn't it make you feel wonderful! Well done on all the right choices :)

Good morning, I think you had a good day too. I like subway too but I worry about all that white bread. I am going to splurge one day and get one.
sigh -why does the good stuff have to be bad for you?

Congrats on a great day!

I'm with Joy on subway. Even before I became health conscious, it was one of my absolute favorites, and I really crave it sometimes. But I'm avoiding it as much as possible now due to the calories in the bread. Not so much in and of itself, but because I find it so darn addictive, and a sub a day habit would not be beneficial to either my weight loss or my budget :).

But if I find myself in a situation where only fast food is a realistic option, its definitely my first stop.

You're doing awesome! Keep up the good work :)
Individual Egg Beater cups?!? I will have to watch for them! I LOVE pepperjack cheese! Thanks for the idea.
