Pushing Through

I wanted pancakes this morning but didn't want to have that stupid 2 pt syrup with them. So I tested the muffin thing. I prepared the batter just like the directions say on the Fiber 1 box and added 1/2 cup blueberries to the batter. Muffins came out great!!


3 blueberry pancake muffins
1/2 chicken sausage
3 egg whites
6 pts

Kettle Korn
1 pt

Alright, I am getting tired of the Kettle Korn. I realize I like it because it takes a while to eat and its only 1 point. Any ideas on other low point snacks besides fruit? Lemme know!!

1 and 1/2 cup whole wheat pasta
egg plant and red bell pepper
1 tbsp parmesan cheese
6 pts

For some reason, right after lunch I was STARVING. I don't know what's going on. My meals so far have been "filling", but my stomach is craving more food! WTF?! I really hate this feeling because it tends to lead me to overeat or make poor food choices. I talked to my homie who happens to read my blog (Hi PIE!!!) and she said that I need to eat more meat. I am not a big meat eater. Besides eggs, I dont think it would be very hard for me to stop eating meat...oh wait except for Jamaican food. Whatever the case is I am going to try to eat MORE MEAT!!

1/2 banana
3 pts

Hey! I also did a random workout today. I jogged and walked a bit on the treadmill for 30 minutes. (I really dont know where my endurance went). Then I did some calisthenics - lunges, pushups, some crazy side to side jumping thing that I saw in Jillian Michaels' Thirty day Shred, and some booty exercises. YEA I SAID IT. I felt like I could take over the world so I put on some boxing gloves and punched this big boxing thing. No clue what its called. Picture Rocky. Not the balloon looking thing. The big ol' body bag looking thing. haha. Im a girl.

REAL chicken breast
Sandwich thin
5 pts

1/2 Banana
1 pt

My dinners for the past 2 nights have been pretty lame. I mean they tasted great, but eh. Not the most creative. For one, I ate dinner pretty late and secondly, I have basically come to the end of my food inventory LoL. Tomorrow I am restocking and I plan on buying some new things. I want to try to make an individual size veggie lasagna. I also want to try to artichokes. I have no idea what to do with an artichoke but lets see how it plays out!

Total for the day: 22 pts.
I cant believe I pulled it off today.

You'll love them!
If you want them to be a bit sweeter, add splenda to the batter. Oh and also, if you arent a fan off too many blueberries, use 1/3 or 1/4 a cup of them instead of the 1/2 cup I used.

Have you tried the clif kid Z bar? http://www.clifbar.com/food/products_clif_kid_zbar/
Since it is made for kids, its half the size and half the calories. like them better than the adult bars.
You could also do pretzel sticks with hummus dip. I love that. Or string cheese. I love that too...drool...Getting hungry...
