Sunday Day 582 Food Diary

Sunday, the day I usually weigh and measure myself and have wonderful things to say. That day is not today. After last night’s feasting on the amazing dip Tracy made, I was not getting anywhere near the scale this morning. Not happening. I pretty much blew it off completely in favor of working on a new project, tearing apart some old sewing to try and make it better, and sitting on my butt for most of the day. I also had a moment of minor panic when I realized we had nothing in the house to eat (okay not really) except a lot of meat in the freezer, and what was I going to have for breakfast?!? :shocked: I finally settled on oatmeal, noting that I am almost out of oatmeal and need to order some more. The oatmeal was dressed up quite a bit with cocoa powder, a bit of sugar, and some milk. I usually skip the milk out today it just sounded good, so there’s another couple of Points+ on my day. I was already headed towards a bad-looking food diary today.

Dinner was an almost delicious mash-up of chicken breast, green beans, carrots (both freshly prepared), “gravy” made from chicken broth and a touch of flour, topped with a can of biscuits, and baked until the biscuits were done.  Unfortunately I used way too much bullion and my gravy was super salty. I ate it, I was hungry, but it just wasn’t that good to me, mainly because I really dislike salty foods. The only thing I actively add salt to is I sprinkle some on my asparagus. I have no idea why- it just tastes good that way. Mattie said dinner was good though, so he can have the leftovers.

That put me pretty high up on P+, and I followed it with dessert of a fudge pop, which doesn’t add up to much. All in all, it wasn’t too bad of a day, and compared to the two days we ate out last week, and all that delicious dip we ate last night, today was positively tame and completely on track. Here’s today’s food diary.

What Points
Oatmeal w/Cocoa Powder, Milk, & Sugar 12
Carrots 0
Chicken & Biscuits 27
Fudge Pop (1) 1
Food Totals 39

Anyway, tomorrow I’ve got to go grocery shopping, and then maybe work on the swing project I ripped apart today. :sideways: See you then!

    “That day is not today.” Thanks for the chuckle. You are entitled to a few offthewagon days.

    Cocoa in oatmeal? Now that’s a new one.

      LOL Yeah. I add about half a tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder and a little sugar. :) Yum!

    I haven’t had cocoa powder in the house for years. I am thinking never. I can’t even remember buying any. Maybe back with my son was little. 40 years ago. 😀

    Kroger was offering little plastic cups of oatmeal and yogurt the last time I was there. I wasn’t feeling too nice that day and told the lady I hated oatmeal and also hated yogurt. LOL!!

      I keep it on hand. We don’t use a lot of it, but sometimes a cup of hot chocolate just sounds good and trust me- after you’ve had it made form scratch, you won;t want the powdered stuff in the envelope anymoe!

      LOL Oh! The poor lady! I am laughing so hard at this though.
