Making Due With Less

Monday seemed like a frustrating, unproductive day filled with false starts and non-accomplishment.  How’s that for a cheery start to my post?!?! 😉

The details aren’t important…I just need to be sure it doesn’t happen again…after all, I am in control of what happens.  That’s a little more positive!

Breakfast was Chobani Peach Yogurt mixed with original Fiber One.  Since I have so many of the yogurts in the fridge and I also realized I have a lot of the Fiber One from the last time I found it on sale, that will be breakfast for the next few days! I’m not complaining because I love it, it’s filling had I usually get about 15 grams of protein from it. AND I figured out that the scones cost me 8 points each.  Won’t be eating them too often! That will break Ralph’s heart…he has to eat ALL the scones! 😉

Lunch was a quickie but very tasty and filling.  I used romaine, somewhat wilty grape tomatoes (that had gotten lost in the fridge!) green bell pepper and the House Foods America garlic and pepper tofu steak. 

It was very tasty, especially topped with the Newman’s Own  Light Lime vinaigrette.  It is my favorite!  When I wasn’t being as careful on WW, I would just pour it on, mindlessly.  I actually measured it yesterday.  It’s one point per tablespoon.  I used 4 but I decided after that I could have made do with only 3, so I’ll save a point next time and make it last longer since it is a little pricey (but worth every penny for the taste and the fact that it’s all for charity.)  Overall, extremely yummy!

For dinner, I tried millet for the first time.  It didn’t come with cooking instructions and I still need to look up the protein value.  I didn’t take any photos, but I used the rest of the black beans and salsa I had made last week to use on salad but then forgot about.  I added some red and green bell pepper to it and topped it with some of my WW sale shredded cheddar.  It was very tasty.  I tasted the millet by itself and it didn’t do much for me.  I saved the leftovers and when it cooled it looked rather odd, but I suppose it will be ok when I warm it up to use again.  It was all very filling and I had NO snacks last night. Excellent! 🙂

Meditation practice went well yesterday.  I still haven’t been able to get it in an evening practice yet, but it’s in my plan of action.

So I must be off.  I will not have another day like yesterday.  So much to do, how can I let a day slip away.  Simple answer…I won’t!  Happy Tuesday! 🙂

  1. I find that a great thing to do with wilty grape tomatoes is to roast them. You can still toss them in your salad.

    I also just found a little treasure. I haven’t worked the numbers yet to see if they have added more carbs but – Chobani now has 4 packs of greek yogurt (aimed at kids I think) called Chobani Champions. They are 3.5 oz and 100 calories. I’ve seen very berry and honey flavors. I love greek yogurt and these are a good size for me. You might want to check them out.

    OK, all I can say is my birds LOVE millet.

  3. Looks like both of us had a bad day yesterday! But since this is the week to be Irish and thanks to Gram we are that in spades…let’s be stubborn and get on with things! We can do it! I’m already feeling better today. I even did a few wrist malas as I walked to the post office to pick up the mail! I’m such a mutitasker! Not always sure that’s a good thing when doing a mantra practice, though.
