Wednesday Came and Went

Wednesday was kind of a blur.  My morning routine went well.  My meditation practice was very interesting…I continue to feel more focused each time I do it.  I love the feeling I have just after I finish…so peaceful and calm. 

I did my 30 minutes on my exercise bike.  I’m reading a terrific book…Summerland by Michael Chabon.

I’m really enjoying it and when I’m enjoying my book, I ride faster and longer so it’s a plus for me!  Very unique plot.  I can’t wait to find out what happens.

After posting on BCDC, I got my breakfast…

Chobani plain Greek Yogurt and Fiber One  mixed with cinnamon (!), Splenda and unsweetened applesauce.  It is SO good!  Because the plain yogurt is only 2 points on Weight Watchers, the whole thing is only 4 points.  AND total of 20 grams of protein (18 yogurt/2 cereal)  AND I like it!  Good start.

I wanted to make a treat to take to Gail’s house so I went back to the old stand by…angel food pineapple cake…

I forgot to take a photo of the finished product, but I’ve shown you that before.  Trust me, they were lovely AND delicious! 😉  I figured out that they now count for 5 points on the new WW program, but still worth every bit of it. 

I spent most of the day at Gail’s house doing my best to help (beyond just bringing goodies!)  It makes me feel good to be helping.  Gail’s Mom was always such a good friend to my Mom, and Gail is my best friend so I feel good being able to help.  It’s a good thing that I’m now working because I can be available to help.

I didn’t get lunch (but I did turn down all snacks offered while I was there!) so when I got home I was starving.  I realized I had some left over pasta in the fridge and it was calling my name.  It was there, all I had to do was heat it up and add cheese.  So that was dinner! 

I didn’t have the best night with my no snacking rule.  But I did realize I had made it a week without breaking my no chips for lent rule.  I’m happy about that.

Today will be a good day.  We’re having lunch with Ralph’s sisters and their husbands and 2 of his cousins for St. Patrick’s Day.  We’re all looking forward to it.  In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I’ll be eating the Green!  The restaurant where we’re going has Big salads that they will usually adjust to my requests so I should be good for lunch.

But first I’m off to the hairdresser.  I don’t mind going…I get to READ!!  Have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day! I need to go dig out some of my Irish CD’s to listen to in the car!  Have a great day!
