A week of what I eat – Day 1

Everyday starts with a cup of tea.  This being day one of my quest to write a blog post, I actually forgot to take a photograph of my first cup of tea this morning in my special mug at N’s house.  I am sure you will see my mug soon enough though!

This would be the drive to work cup of tea.(0pts+ each)





Ah, breakfast. It’s the same thing every day. What can I say, I’m a creature of habit! Maple & Brown Sugar Oatmeal (3pts+), 1tbs Genisoy brand protien powder (3pts+), 2tbs Wheat Bran (1pts+), 1tbs ground flax (0pts+). That makes a filling breakfast that lasts me a good few hours, for a total of 7pts+.



My morning ‘work coffee’.  1/2 cup of 1% chocolate milk (2pts+), 2tbs Light Vanilla coffee cream (2pts+) and then I just top it up with coffee. It’s my home made morning mocha, for a total of 4pts+.




Shockingly enough, 11am was banana o’clock.  With my Vitamin D + Calcium that I’ve been taking since the Doctors suspected I may have a stress fracture in my foot. Apparently I need to make my bones stronger!




Lunch out at Cactus Club with a friend. I normally go for the Caesar Salad, but today I wanted something with lower points.  The greens & strawberries of course are a lovely 0pts+. The egg was 2pts+. Chicken Breast for 3pts+. I estimated a tablespoon of feta, for 1pt, then I tracked 1pt for the microscopic amount of vinaigrette I picked up dipping my fork in the dressing.  That makes a lovely lunch out, with great company, for 7pts.


Somehow, the afternoon passed without me stopping for a snack, but a day is never complete without an ice cold can of Coke Zero.






Lately I’ve been noticing a serious shortage of red meat in my diet, so I decided to stop and pick myself up a steak for dinner.  4oz (cooked) sirloin steak, 5pts+. The red onions were cooked with water & a little cooking spray. 1/2 Large baked potato, 2pts. 1 1/2 tbs nonfat greek yogurt, 0pts. Chives, 0pts. 1tbs real bacon bits, 1pt.

The salad consists of Lettuce, Carrots, Red Onions & Strawberries for 0pts and 15g of light feta cheese for 1pt.  I didn’t eat the salad though. The steak & potato were filling enough, so it’s going in the fridge for lunch tomorrow!


I have noticed that there isn’t a single ounce of water in any of these pictures. Although, I must admit that lately, with the lack of summer, my choice fluid has been tea.  That being said, I think it’s time to fill up the water bottle and get myself hydrated!

And I gave in to the need for the fruit salad! And it was delicious. All the fruit = 0pts+. And then the light coolwhip is 1pts+.
