Food Journal (January 9)

My morning started with a Kashi honey almond flax bar (4 points) and a cup o' joe (2 points). I wasn't really all that hungry this morning, but I knew I needed a little something to kick start my metabolism. 

We had a few errands to run mid-morning so I grabbed a banana (0 points) to hold me over until lunch.
 I had a tasty sandwich (5 points) for lunch. It included low fat cheese, shaved chicken breast, spinach, tomatoes, a sprinkle of salt, and some fat free poppyseed dressing. I love poppyseed dressing on a sandwich!
  And, of course, what's a sandwich without some Pop Chips, right? (3 points)
 The boys had more homemade pizza for lunch. I think they could live on homemade pizza.
   Liam got about half of his pizza on his shirt so I had to strip him down and toss his clothes in the washer.
 Meanwhile, he had a mini photo shoot of himself with my iphone.
 After lunch the boys and I played a game of hide-and-go-seek. I thought I would never find them *wink*
 Then it was my turn to hide. I hid on the bottom bunk and covered myself with a blanket. They had a blast trying to find me. Can you see them through the safety net?
 My next hiding spot was under Liam's crib, which may or may not have been a good idea. The boys thought it was funny, of course. We played for about an hour before Liam was ready for a nap.
 When Liam went down for his afternoon nap, Silas and I took the opportunity to try out my new Mastrad Chip Maker! I ordered it with an amazon gift card I got for Christmas. It makes crisp fruit and veggie chips without any fat or oil! Three minutes in the microwave and you've got some yummy snacks! We did Cinnamon Apple Chips (0 points) and Sweet Potato Chips (2 points). The apples were ok, but the sweet potatoes were delicious!
  My apple chips need a little work.
 I finished off my sweet potato chips outside while watching Silas play.
 The weather has been pretty nasty here so there was really only one option- strip down to your unders, put your rubber boots on, and go puddle jumping! And that he did!
After Liam woke up from his nap I cooked dinner and got the boys all bathed and fed, but I didn't get a chance to eat dinner before we headed out to AWANA. Consequently, I had two mini fruit roll-ups (2 points) with my little Cubbies at snack time. 
 It was camouflage night at Cubbies tonight, hence Mrs. Dolly's camo shirt and Silas' camo pants.
I was so excited about dinner when I got home tonight. Not only was I famished, but I LOVE chicken and black bean tacos (I adapted the recipe and did it stovetop, and I didn't make the slaw). I made myself three tacos topped with low fat cheese, low fat sour cream, and some pico de gallo.  I had three delicious tacos and called it a night! (12 points)
I get a total of 29 points.
I used 30 points today. 
Darn you, fruit roll-up!
