You've heard them... Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance. The five Ps are relevant in pretty much every aspect of life - especially weight loss!! I must pat myself on the back today for adhering to the five Ps and having an awesome WW day. I even have two points leftover for a bedtime snack (hello, m&ms!!).
Today looked like this:
B: Two eggs, English muffin and tea
L: Peanut butter sandwich, yogurt and grapes
S: Pear and 20 almonds
D: Tortilla pizza (YUMM!) and veggies w/ light ranch dip
S: Halloween m&m's
First off, I planned a fun day for myself and the kids since we spent yesterday cooped up indoors. Today, it was rainy, so I decided to go to the mall. While we were there, I planned on walking a few laps with the stroller before sitting down to let them play. I purposely didn't leave for the mall until after an early lunch because I didn't want to get caught in that "well, we're out and it's lunchtime, so we better stop and get something" routine. I don't mind eating out every once in a while, but, the more times we go, the more times I'm tempted to get something bad. Plus, I was already planning on eating out for lunch tomorrow.
So, I knew we would be out during snack time, so I packed the kids a snack and grabbed a pear and almonds for myself. That way, we weren't out and starving and tempted by Auntie Anne... you all know her, I'm sure! Not only was I able to get in a little exercise by lapping the mall with the kids in tow, but I was also able to get in a healthy lunch and snack, all the while having fun with the kiddos. Not too bad of a day!
Oh, and the tortilla pizzas were pretty awesome! I was originally planning on making pizza on the refrigerated Pillsbury dough but, when I got home, I realized that I must have used the dough without remembering. Oops. So, in a pinch, I used flour tortillas. I sprayed a cookie sheet with Pam, laid out a couple of tortillas, then topped them with sauce, a bunch of veggies, cheese and pepperoni. Then, I baked them at 375 for about 15 minutes. Even Joe and the kids liked them.
Now, I'm off to get those m&ms I saved up for tonight :)
