white cheddar rice cakes and i just recently fell in love. they're 1.5 points for 2 and very delicious, kind of tastes like popcorn. but i have to say, it's hard to eat just 2...i have tucked them away into my filing cabinet here at work but i'm pretty sure i will have at least another before the day is over.
yesterday i finished week 1 of the couch potato to 5k running program. it felt great...i enjoyed it. hopefully someday i will be able to run for 30 minutes straight. thats a definitely a goal for the new year. i definitely feel thinner...i put one my workout pants yesterday and my belly looked pretty flat, i was surprised. i was at the gym and i wanted to check out my stomach but the lady who was cleaning the bathroom was in there and i didn't want to look like a crazy person, checking out my own stomach. i also didn't get a chance to weigh myself this morning because i slept at my boyfriends house but tmw morning will be a pre-weigh-in weigh-in. i post my weigh-ins on thursday on the WW 3fatchicks board (see right hand column) so hopefully i either maintained or lost a pound. i don't expect much after this past weekend of drinks and mexican food! i have been on point all week.
last night i went to outback for dinner. my bf cut me a piece of bread and i cut it in half and *barely* put a smidge of butter on it, so i feel like thats one point, if that. then i had the shrimp and veggie griller, no rice, extra veggies. i asked for it to be cooked without butter but i'm pretty sure there was butter on there, i only ate half though and it was delicious - 6pts i'm guessing bc without butter its only 3 for the entire thing. i also had a small, 4oz glass of red wine and a side salad with no croutons or cheese, just veggies with dressing on the side which i barely touched except to dip my fork in. so far, so good!!
today's menu so far:
breakfast: kashi bar (2.5)
snack: 2.5 rice cakes (2)
lunch will be healthy choice chicken and rice soup (2.5) and maybe a yogurt smoothie as a snack before i head home from work....
christmas vacation is 3 days away! YES :)
