For breakfast this morning, I said “Oh, I’ll have smoothie that I bought from the grocery store yesterday.” It was delicious, but it was also 6 WW pts. (For those who may not know WW points are just calories made easy, the more points=more calories) I can make a smoothie at home for 4 points with fat-free yogurt, a little fat-free milk and ice. Anyway, when I got to work, the ladies asked me to go grab breakfast with them. Sure I thought, I can do this. I went down to the cafeteria with big hopes and dreams. I got a breakfast sandwich on whole wheat bread, egg white only and turkey with cheese, and proudly told the chef to, “hold the butter!” I thought I was jammin’ , I mean it couldn’t be more than 4 or 5 points right? WRONG, Miss chef lady put 2 pieces of cheese; my breakfast sandwich add up to a whopping 12 points! I almost passed out when I got back to my desk and added up the totals. 18 points on breakfast, and this is only my 1st day. Imagine if I had gotten what I really wanted Texas toast, whole eggs and toasty butter… Lunch was much better, when I as invited out to Ruby Tuesdays, I gave a FIRM “No, thanks.” I ate the soup I make last night, and a Lean Cuisine BBQ Chicken Pizza. And check this out, I found a 1 pt Hostess Cinnamon Streusel Cake! As my Hollywood aunt says “Shut the Bus!” Cake for 1 point? You might see these lil things way too often under What Did Carli eat today…..
Earlier in the week, I was going back and forth trying to decide if I really wanted to sign up for Lyle’s boot camp class, but my WW Meeting gave me the extra boost to go ahead and get more active. I couldn’t remember what time class started and I hadn’t even signed up. So I just showed up at 6 after work. Lyle said “Hey Carli good to see you, Are you hear for 1st class, or the next one?” I replied, “I didn’t know there were 2 classes tonight.” To which he said “Oh Good, you can do both!” I thought well I did have a 20 pt breakfast. So, I did both classes! Can you believe it? Back to back boot camp. This is not a class for wimps. There was running backwards and forwards, jump rope, sit ups, pushups leg lifts, and even high school gym floor suicides drills, all times TWO! I knew I was crazy, when I limped up the steps to my house. But I felt like a champ!
