I did GREAT yesterday. I stayed with in my points, drank 6 glasses of water, and remembered my multi-vitamin! And earned 3 activity points from walking 5.37 miles! I was missing 2 fruits/veggies, and my oils.
I usually do pretty good with fruits/veggies... my oils are a problem. I'll most-likely get my oils in today because I cooked some spinach with olive oil last night to have today.

And did I mention I got 12 servings of filling foods in!
I got my butt to cooking yesterday. I made pan of yams, super simple... I just get a clean pan, rinse the yams and toss them all in the over for about 20-30 minutes or until they're soft. I like to eat them warm with a 1/2 cup of fat free milk poured over them, a little splenda, and vanilla... sooo good, filling, and pretty low points - 4 points for total snack/meal. Or when I'm at work I usually don't have time to warm them up, etc... so I just eat them cold - straight from the back I packed them in, still good and only 3 points for every 7 oz.

While the yams were cooking I made a pot of pinto beans. I always forget how much I enjoy beans. Like oatmeal beans are sort of a blank canvas waiting for special toppings. If I don't have the stuff or time to make Pico De Gallo (basic fresh salsa), then I just have it with hot sauce.
Yesterday, I made some Pico De Gallo to go with my beans. That's what I had for dinner... the Pico De Gallo wasn't hot enough so I dropped in a chipotle chili... OMG Low-Fat Mexican Food Heaven! Soo good and only 4 pt.

As another bean topping I made spinage with tomato sauce. My mother made it the other day but used a different kind of spinach so mine didn't quite come out like hers - a bit disappointing but I'm going to eat it anyway, just maybe not as a bean topping.
Ross has been a bit sick this week, I thought he was going to come over yesterday - I made him Chicken Soup... I was a little annoyed that he didn't come over after bowling, but that's okay that means less cooking for me later. I'm sure he'll have some this weekend.

The only thing I wasn't too happy about yesterday was that I didn't drink all my water until late. I drank 2 glasses in the afternoon, and than about 11:40pm I had to chug down 4 glasses, one after the other. It dropped my body temperature so I was freezing for a while. I hate freezing. Today I'm going to aim to get my water in earlier.

The weekends here and I'm a bit nervous about it but I'm just going to take it one day at a time. I think Easter we're going to go out for pizza because I don't feel like cooking. I think I'll try to fill up on salad before going also I'll have my flex points because I don't plan on using any today or Saturday.
I'm doing great again today. I've had my multi-vitamin. I've used 3 points so far on Oatmeal and fat-free milk. I'm a little hungry but I'm going to drink 2 glasses of water before having a snack. So far today I've walked 1959 steps, which equals to .80 of a mile. Not bad. I'll hit over a mile by lunch time (12pm).

Well, that's about it for today. Happy Losing and Happy Easter!

Wow Rosie, you did do great yesterday. You go, girl!

P.S. I love beans too, and like you, seem to forget how much I love them until I taste them each time.
