I forgot breakfast

Hey everyone!!

Here I am - as promised.
I went to a meeting today. I know my usual day is Saturday, but I have been not counting for so long that I really needed the meeting to make sure that I tracked today.

I was so greedy today at breakfast time that I forgot to snap a picture.

FiberOne buttermilk pancakes
1/4 cup sugar free syrup
2 slices of turkey bacon
1 tsp olive oil
(not pictured)
7 pts

So for lunch I decided to try something new.....well not actually NEW new, since I made it a couple of days ago - I made HOMEMADE pasta!!!

With whole wheat flour, eggwhites, salt and basil! My sister randomly gave me this italian recipe book and I decided to follow their recipe for fresh pasta (i just made a few tweaks). It was honestly not the fastest process, but it was fun anyway. I hope someone buys me a pasta maker for Christmas.

3/4 cup whole wheat pasta
1 tsp olive oil
2 egg whites
sauteed squash and green pepper
1 tbsp parmesan cheese
7.5 pts
I LOVE IT! Ofcourse, a big part of it is due to the fact that I made it by myself from scratch.

kettle korn
1 pt

whiting fish fillet
1 cup brown rice
1/4 cup black beans
1 tsp olive oil
cucumber and tomato
8 pts

My time away from blogging and counting points has really made me realize something about myself - I don't like to NOT be eating when other people are eating.
Big deal right? No but seriously, I have noticed that even when I am "satisfied" the sight of other people eating makes me feel like "hey...i wanna eat more food too!" Its a really sad/annoying problem to have. I had to talk to the boyfriend about it. See, he is 6'4. Used to play football. So he pretty much eats whatever he likes. And when I am around him I tend to eat like I am a 6'4 man. Its my fault. I mean, I don't expect him to change his eating habits for my sake. But I dunno, it does something to me mentally when he goes for seconds and I "can't"......ugh. i am working on it.

On a brighter note, he has been encouraging me with my running thing. I hate running outside, but for some reason running with him isn't so bad. (see what stupid love will do to you?!?)
Okay that's all for now! Look out for me tomorrow!!

Total for the day: 23.5 pts
