I am going to post a couple of recaps here of Monday and Tuesday!
Monday the kids were off of school and FabHubs took off of work. We had some tickets to go to Boomers and decided to use them. We had a fabulous time. I managed to eat healthy most of the day….I flubbed up a little at dinner though. Not too badly….but not too goodly either.
The day started off with my Monday Weight Watchers Weigh-In and I was DOWN! YES!!! By 3 pounds!!! YES!!!! Bringing my total to 17 pounds since July 20.
I am pleased about the slow, steady weight loss. I really feel I am adjusting my body’s setpoint by going so slowly and healthy…and that the weight will stay off this way.
Breakfast was one of the two usuals. Due to the cooler weather I opted for some oatmeal. Gotta take advantage of that hot cereal weather…normally I have hot cereal on hot days!
It was 1/2 cup oatmeal cooked with Vanilla Lite Silk Milk, topped with 1/2 sliced banana, 1 TBS walnuts, and 1 TBS Almond Butter. YUM!
By the time we got up to Boomers everyone was hungry. FabHubs stopped at McDonalds to let everyone pick something off the dollar menu to tide them over….I haven’t had fast food since back in June and I was not going to break that trend now! So I opted out…but when we got to Boomers I was hungry! So I had a healthier (I think) snack…..
Then the fun began!!!
We played air hockey:
Played on the Bumper Boats:
And played some Mini Golf:
I dragged everybody to Sweet Tomatoes as we don’t have one near our house and there was one right by Boomers. I was craving a good salad! Only the MeatEater, otherwise known as the FabHubs, protested, although afterwards he relented and said it wasn’t that bad.
I piled mostly veggies on my plate…with a few of the “Bad” salads thrown in (sorry…a little blurry) Boy do I love Jicama…I need to buy some of that for my salads at home! I also had shredded raw butternut squash…I have never eaten that raw before and that was good! The beets and carrots were also raw!
I had a slice of their delicious whole grain seed bread…shhh….with butter.
And that is when I sort of ate more than I should have…I had a couple of spoonfuls of the Leek and Potato soup (with cream)….a couple of spoonfuls of the Lemon Orzo Chicken soup….a couple of spoonfuls of the vanilla pudding….half of a chocolate muffin…half of a lemon muffin…and a small chocolate chip square.
I really do need to get a handle on the buffet stuff! I like to sample everything! But because I wasn’t sitting behind a computer all day, I also got a bit more activity than usual..so that was good.
All in all we had a fabulously fun family day!
