Well today has been a productive day.  It was Martin Luther King Day so Charles was off from school.  Samuel woke up feeling crummy with a fever and a cough so we stayed home today.  I think he's actually feeling better now-I gave him some Tylenol around 1pm and it hasn't come back yet so maybe it was just a little thing.

Tomorrow is weigh in day for the Biggest Loser Competition that I'm in on a DFW Mom Forum.  Of course I was weighed at weight watchers on Saturday and I was 190.  I'm not expecting to have dropped another pound tomorrow.

So here is a look at my day:


* 1 packact of instant quaker oatmeal-maple and brown sugar = 4 points
* 1 cup of 1% milk = 3


*1/4 cup of air popped popcorn, seasoned with Pam and Cheddar Popcorn Seasoning = 1 point


* Weight Watchers Smart One Lasagna Florentine = 7 points


* I did 10 minutes of a high intensity work out tape, 5 minutes on the elliptical, and 50 crunches


*1/4 Cup of fat free cool whip & cup of fresh strawberries = 0 points


*4 oz, of rump roast = 4 points
* 1 baked potato, cooked 5oz = 3 points
* 1/2 cup of green beans = 0 points
* 1/4 cup of fat free shredded cheddar cheese = 1 point
* 2 tablespoons of Kraft Simply Light Sour Cream = 1 point
* 1 cornbread muffing = 4 points

So that's my day in a nutshell.  I did pretty good--Dinner looks like it's a lot only because of the potato add ons.  I actually finished everything on my plate and it was just enough.  I did get a food scale so that I could measure out the meat and potatoes.  I also measure the sour cream and cheese.  I pretty much measure everything except the things that are free points.  I think it's okay to just do an estimate on those.  So I pretty much broke even for today.

I still have a medicine that I have to take before I go to bed with some food so I'll probably have a banana with that so I don't go over my points.  I am really learning that I can eat things I enjoy and still manage my weight.  Weight watchers is all about healthier choices and portion control.  I'm really enjoying it.  Until tomorrow, I hope everyone has a good night and keep up the good work!
