Day 2 - It's my anniversary...?

Today while talking to my mom, I asked her what the date was and she informed me it was March 16. Today is my 9th wedding anniversary, and I didn't even realize it. Easy thing to do when you don't have a husband anymore... Oh, well.

This morning's breakfast was:

1/2 c. eggbeaters w/ 1 slice reduced fat cheese made into an omelet (2 pts)
2 slices of double fiber bread w/ light margarine and jelly (6 pts)
3 slices of reduced fat bacon (only 2 pts!)

Very filling and yummy. I did 45 minutes on the elliptical a couple of hours after breakfast. Last night I did 20 minutes of strength training on arms and glutes, and tried the Biggest Loser Yoga (but couldn't do much of it). I was sore this morning, but did the elliptical anyway. My knee is hurting, which sucks. I took two Aleve and it's better.

Lunch was tricky. I was planning chicken salad again, but when I started toasting frozen waffles for the kiddos, I wanted them SO bad. Then I remembered that I had some Special K waffles in the freezer. So I had waffles, too! With light syrup drizzled on, and topped with sliced strawberries and Cool Whip Lite. YUMMY! I felt like I was cheating, but was totally satisfied. Now it's time for me to go to work at LB, and I have about 30 minutes to come up with a reasonable dinner that will tide me over. I think I'll warm up a can of soup, and bring a fiber one bar to snack on.

The eating at LB is out of control. My co-workers LOVE TO EAT, and do so with no regard to fat content. It's so hard to resist when it's being shoved in your face. But I have to! Tonight I will NOT give in to fast food at work. I have a plan, and will stick to it.
