The Mad Hare

Hello again. Boy has the bunny been hoppy. She keeps running between the office and under our bed and playing with her toys and just generally being busy and extremely cute.

Breakfast was coffee and some fruit (2 Points +). I really didn’t feel like I wanted anything else. I think it’s because I have been eating more than usual the last couple of days.

Lunch was at a local bakery during a meeting. We have been eating buffet style which has been nice. I load up on the veggies and can avoid the heavy stuff without having to do a bunch of special ordering which I never like doing when they are trying to serve 20+ other people plus the regular customers in the restaurant. I had half a roast beef sandwich, a cookie and salad. (14 Points + estimate)

Dinner was supposed to be one of our vegetarian nights. I was going to make mushroom sandwiches again. I made the mushroom sandwiches , but they had meat in them. I didn”t realize when I ordered 2lbs of meat from the meat farm that it would come in one two pound package not two one pound pacakges. In a way it doesn’t bother me, but I am trying to make the meat in our freezer last as long as possible.

Anyway, that’s a long way to say we had beef and mushroom melts with salad and oven baked steak fries (13 Points + estimate)

No desert last night. I didn’t need it and I didn’t need the extra points.

I Need A Nap

Wow was that a long weekend. I’m hoping for a slower week and weekend. We’ll see how that works out for me.

Yesterday, breakfast was the usual oatmeal served with milk and brown sugar eaten while at my usual breakfast meeting (7 Points +)

I also had a venti, non-fat,  caramel macchiato. With as long as last weekend was I knew I needed the strong stuff in large quantities (6 Points +). Let me tell you it was worth every point =)

Wow…what a weekend. It is Monday right?


After a full day of work I had three children dropped off Friday evening. We had the other half’s sister’s little ones until Sunday morning. I made sure I had a general idea of what we were going to do with them. I had activities and games at the ready and the menu was all planned.

Breakfast was an egg sandwich. I don’t why but it sounded good. Egg, bread, pepper jack and Canadian bacon(9 Points +).

Lunch was leftover lasagna (9 Points+). It sounded so good and boy was it.  Because my meat is grass fed and from the farm I never know, or can control the fat content. In this case I know I had less than a serving, but I counted it as a serving to try to add a little room for extra calories.

Dinner was a nice pot of  lightened up home made chicken corn chowder made with the help of the little ones. Yes, this is May but I live in Washington and my high was only in the 50’s today and we are in the 40’s tonight. I served the soup with a side of salad (11 Points +).

After a movie we tucked the munchkins in an passed out. Continue Reading »

A quick catch up of what happened yesterday.

Yesterday’s breakfast and lunch were at home. Well, lunch at least was. By the time I got hungry for breakfast I couldn’t summon the motivation to go downstairs and make it. How sad is that?  Lunch was a slice of leftover zucchini cheese quiche with a side of cantaloupe and refried beans (weird but we were cleaning out the fridge).

Dinner was also kinda skipped. I usually make sure I eat a little something before Bunco but that didn’t happen this time. While out I planned to followed the same stratagey I did l last time (eat one plate only all the light stuff and allow for a couple of treats). This time there was more main dishes, and what I brought was the only desert. I had some tea , a few tortilla chips, a slice of Hawaiian pizza and a couple of pieces of my desert. I went ahead and estimated what I know I ate. I will go ahead and leave extra flexies to cover anything I missed or mis counted.  Continue Reading »

Sorry..I couldn’t resist. I’ve been seeing the greeting all over the internet today. You probably don’t know that I am a big dork. I love gaming and Python and rebuilding computers to name a few things.

Now for something completely different. Today was a standard Wednesday. I went to a lunch meeting where I had a BLT and salad.

I then went home for following up with contacts and blogging. We had pork with potatoes and zucchini for dinner.

Still no meat order delivered to my doorstep, but I finally have a shipping confirmation. Order it today get it tomorrow huh? More like order it today get in 3-5 days. I had to pick up some meat for tonights dinner and I’m afraid I’m going to have to buy more for tomorrow night’s dinner. In a way it’s my fault because I should have left extra time for the meat to get here just in case. I hate it when I fail to plan things right.

I’m still a bit off today. The whole over exposure to sun thing is much better. On the other hand I’m still upset over some things that are going on. I’m trying to control my anger and see the good side of things. With that I am off. I have  some stuff to do to get ready to have munchkins over on the weekend. I also have to get ready for Bunco tomorrow night, G’night all!

Hello again. I was feeling better after a much calmer day (health, day job and jewelry biz wise). Then something happened that really upset me. I really can’t go into it here, but I really felt shook, betrayed and insecure.  Food was pretty basic and easy to keep track of today.

Breakfast was a Kodiak Cake sandwich (peanut butter and honey variation) with a glass of milk. I really didn’t feel like cutting up the cantaloupe so no fruit with it.

Lunch was beyond good. I had leftover salsa refried beans , in a Tortilla Land  flour tortilla, with a little bit of low fat sharp cheddar. That hit the spot perfectly.  I had a handful of carrots on the side with a smidgen of honey mustard. I can’t decide if I like  the new honey mustard dressing. It’s yummy but they used a spicy mustard. The jury is still out on that one.

Dinner was a bit delayed. I was hoping the meat order would come in today. The website says order it today and have it tomorrow. I ordered early in the day yesterday and kept my fingers crossed. By 1pm today I hadn’t received a tracking number so I was going to give up and buy some meat for tonight. Then I realized I just went to the market on Monday and will have to go again on Thursday. I gave up and made a zucchini quiche with things I had in the house. I hope the meat comes in because we need it for the rest of the week and I don’t want to have to buy meat twice this week. Expensive!

Another Monday

I tried to keep yesterday as normal as possible. I was up sick until 1am Sunday night and had to be up at 5 Monday morning and I still don’t feel quite right.

I started off by finishing off the Gatorade from last night. The Gatorade stayed down so I headed out to my usual morning meeting. I had oatmeal, water, milk and coffee (the coffee was a really bad idea) for breakfast.

We were super low on groceries but I manage to cobble together a siao pao bun and some salad for lunch. I would usually also have some water , but I was very afraid to drink any water.

After work I had to run to the market to buy groceries. The cupboards were pretty bare. None of the meals I had planned week were super easy to make or eat, but there wasn’t too much I could do about it. I had to go with the plan so we didn’t waste the veggies that had already been delivered from the farm. We had veggie and cheese quesadillas, cilantro lime rice and refried beans with salsa.

There is no food journal for yesterday. I know how many points my breakfast and lunch were. I have no idea about dinner. I was not up to doing all the calculating and tracking. I tried to watch the oil I cook with, watch my portions, use veggies to fill the quesadilla instead of tons of cheese etc.  I made as many good choices as I could and put a rough estimate in my online tracker. I had to use a ton of points for Gatorade yesterday. I’m going to try some water today and see if I do ok with that so I don’t have to drink more Gatorade.

Today is a slower day, and for that I am grateful. I am off and running.
