Monday love…

Another edition of Monday Love…

A quote: Life expectancy would grow by leaps and bounds if green vegetables smelled as good as bacon. ~Doug Larson

Something personal: I love to eat.  I basically have no willpower when it comes to food.  So, it’s time to conquer this challenge and gain control over the food that runs my life – and hence has caused my waistline (and other areas) to grow.  I have made the decision to learn the Weight Watchers plan and so far I’m really loving it.  I can eat most of what I want, but I have to be creative and not eat quite so much of it.  I’m learning, and I have a long way to go.  But it feels good so far, especially the few pounds that are already gone!

In case you find it interesting, I thought I would share my 29 points that I ate today….

Breakfast: Kashi Go Lean (1/3 cup), Fat Free Milk (1/2 cup), Blueberries & Banana, Latte  (6 Points Total)

Lunch: Black Beans & Rotelle Tomatoes (1/3 cup) with a teaspoon fat free sour cream, 1/8 avocado, and lettuce, on a whole wheat tortilla (5 Points Total)

Snack: Small Bowl of home-made veggie soup (ZERO points!).  Yes, I made it myself – super easy!!

Dinner: Grilled Swordfish, Broccoli, home-made cheese fries (a WW recipe!) – (12 points)

Dessert: Jello Chocolate Pudding cup (3 points)

It’s funny that I have this feeling of accomplishment – like I beat the system or something – because I ate stuff I really like and STILL stayed within the guidelines.   I have never tried to truly change my eating habits before, so this is a new adventure for me.  Wish me luck – and feel free to share any inspiration! :)

Something cool: I have taken several classes at the Showcase School of Photography and have loved all of my instructors.  In looking at their updated course schedule I noticed a very interesting class that I thought I would share with all of you budding “iPhone Photographers”.  It’s called the Art of iPhoneography and it looks really fun!  The class is only 5 hours long and $75 – what a bargain!

And since every post should have a picture, I found these random photos.  Kylie when she was two and Jake at the same age.  It’s amazing to think how far we’ve come….


Happy Monday!!!

Crystal - Oh Lisa, that’s just mean! Good thing there aren’t any In-N-Out Burgers here! A cheeseburger is 13 points and once you add the fries, it’s 24 points!!! That leaves just 5 points for the rest of the day…..

Lisa Phillipson - Let’s go get an In N Out burger. How many points does that have?

Liz - Good for you!! And your soup looks delicious!
