Sorry for the neglect!

Ugh I've been busy. Like I said, I'm finishing my last 3 weeks of classes so I missed a day of blogging. Yesterday I ate fairly well. It was a pretty boring day of food so I wont even upload the pics of it all. I did have a slice of the freezer cake LoL. It was great! After it defrosted it actually tasted better than the first day I had it. Weird. I had 27 points yesterday - using 5 of my weekly bonus points. I was kinda annoyed by it because I ate a 5 point Clif bar unnecessarily. Nessie suggested that I try the Clif Z bar instead as it is less calories so I'll look out for them.

I worked out again last night - this time I managed to pull off an hour jogging and walking on the treadmill. And then I did the whole routine of lunges, pushups, and booty toning stuff. And now everything is sore.

Okay here's the food for today:
3 egg whites
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
1 tsp olive oil
4 pts

I bought these individual little baking trays yesterday and I used them to make a little individual lasagna. I had the noodles as well but I had already planned out my points for the day and couldnt "afford" the noodles. LoL. Soooo... instead of the noodles I just used the eggplant. I was surprised that it turned out good. It wasnt as solid as a lasagna with noodles would be, but it was yummy all the same.

Eggplant "lasagna"
1/4 c part skim ricotta cheese
1/4 c mozzarella cheese
tomato sauce
1 tbsp parmesan cheese
4.5 pts

1 pt

I have never been a fan of peaches. I have a childhood memory of my mom packing little canned fruit cocktails in my lunch and I hated them. Eww. Canned peaches are gross. And I guess I thought canned peaches were a representation of real, fresh peaches so I have avoided them all my life. I bought one the other day just to try it because the price was right. LoL. And it was good. I will buy peaches in the future.
chicken breast
1 tsp olive oil
1/2 c black beans
1 c brown rice
9 pts

1 banana
1/4 cup blue berries
(not pictured)
4 pts

Total for the day: 22.5 pts
I felt too sore to do any exercise today so...none for me thanks!

That eggplant lasagna looked sooooo good. You are getting really creative :o) Praises are also in order for your return to the gym...we can be gym buddies when you come back home...can't wait! Does WW do a points calculation for the number of calories you burn at the gym?

yup! you earn activity points for workouts. You can use the earned points to eat more in the week.

I had to chuckle at your peach story. I was the saaaame way with apples. Now I can't live w/o a decent Fuji. Too bad they are outta season.
I have been trying your strawberry trick, BTW. Who would have thought eating them PLAIN would be A: so satisfying, and B: so tasty? Thanks for the idea!
