i can't believe i like watching the country music awards

I do not know exactly where the past few days have gone. Busy days at school make for a fast week (I probably just jinxed the next few days and they will probably go by really slow). Any whoo - I'm just sitting here in my pajamas watching the CMA Awards reflecting on my noshing the past few days. Here's a recap:

Breakfast was a light multi grain english muffin, fat free cream cheese, and two leftover slices of center cut bacon. Mmmm...bacon. I also added some reduced sugar orange juice in my Wizard of Oz travel mug. (Love the WOZ!)

Lunch has been very unimaginative and very processed lately. I hope to go to the grocery store this weeked to stock up on healthier lunch options. In the mean time, Lean Cuisine will just have to do.

Eric was in charge of dinner because I had so many papers to grade. He ran up to our new favorite bbq place and ordered a POUND of shredded pork and coleslaw. I had a combination of the two (with a little mustard based bbq sauce) on a 1 point hambuger bun. I added a bag of the Weight Watchers pizza flavored pretzle thins. I LOVE these thins because they tast just like the pizza flavored Combos. Sinful yum!

I went to recreate the english muffin - cream cheese - bacon combination from Tuesday when I realized the rest of my english muffins were still in the freezer. Oops. So opted for the same combo, but this time on a spinach Flat Out. It was still delicious!

Lunch was still a little over-processed. But at least it included sugar free chocolate pudding. :)

Eric wasn't hungry at dinner time so I just fixed a littel sammy for myself. I recreated what is often referred to as a "turkey rachel" (a spin off of the reuben sandwhich). I used my 1 point hamburger bun as a base, then added light thousand island dressing, oven roasted turkey breast, melted asiago sliced cheese, and coleslaw. It ended up being a little soggy because of the dressing/ coleslaw combination, but it was a good sandwhich. Especially when paired with baked Doritos and a ginormous dill pickle. I. Love. Pickles.

In other exciting news, I got a special little package in the mail on Monday. Can't wait to try out the Nature Valley Nut Clusters and Chewy Trail Mix bars. I LOVE getting goodies in the mail!!

The eyelids are getting heavy....'tis time to retire.

Night ya'll!!!

Off Da Chain Seafood & Mo

yet another reason why I love the state of South Carolina...

Like most women, I find Monday to be a day of fresh and new beginnings. I do, however, apologize for the multiple "new beginnings" I establish on this blog. Hey, maybe this is the one that sticks.

I started off the day early at school to prepare for the chaotic educational station activity for microscopes. I packed breakfast early and ate it during homeroom.

I really enjoy the english muffin/ almond butter combination! Lunch rolled around before I knew it, at which point I nuked a Lean Cuisine flatbread melt...

I had packed this little guy for an afternoon snack, but ended up eating him at the lunchroom table instead...

I ran errands after school, wandered around Publix for a while, and then came home to make dinner. We ended up having Kirkland brand turkey burger patties on Whitewheat buns. On the burger, I added 2% cheese, ketchup, mustard, dill pickles, sliced tomato, spinach leaves, and two slices of center cut bacon. It was SUPER TASTY and a very hearty burger for only 8 points. I rounded out our burgers with an oldie but a goodie - frozen twice baked potatoes.

At this point in the evening, I should be grading papers. However, I am pretty much exhausted and my head is starting to throb. To my comfy bed I go. Is it really only Monday???
Night ya'll!
