Valentine's Day and What I've Been Eating

Ah, Valentine's Day. The day of commercial love. What were WE up to? Not much.

Went shopping for Valentine's Day stuff for the boys (we got them each a little box of their favorite candies), had lunch at Jimmy John's (only 8 points for the Turkey Tom - awesome!), then called back a man for a job interview (NOT Zales, darnitall - but we'll talk about the other company if the interview goes well), went to the boys' school for their Valentine's Day parties, and came home.

Adrian got a good haul at his party! 
Patrick was just lucky to participate.
He got in alot of trouble today.

Ha, the kids were playing heads up seven up. 
Then we went over to Steve's parents' house and visited with his family.

His grandma is in town, and he lives in Indiana, so she only comes down once or twice a year. She seems like a nice lady, it's good that the boys got to visit with her.

Now let's get to the good stuff: what I've been eating.

Chicken thighs and sweet potato fries. <3 
Cheddar broccoli soup! 
Butternut squash and chicken legs. 
Honey Bunches of Oats and an English muffin. 
A box dinner. Thumbs down. 
Speaks for itself. So flippin' good.
Jimmy John's - turkey tom and potato chips!
Grapes. Yummeh. 
Chicken quesadilla plus more chicken!
On the whole - it seems like my diet is more balanced lately.

I've really been enjoying Weight Watchers!

I came in on my first week at a 1.2 pound weight loss.

We'll see what next Wednesday brings!


  1. Sweet Loss! I may jump on that bandwagon!

  2. Have you tried the unwich at Jimmy John's? I love those!

  3. Good work! balance.. I don't even know what that is.

  4. Yay for the loss! And definitely for the balance!
