saturday--good choices

Saturday, February 01, 2014

hi folks--well guess what--its Saturday and we are having a snowstorm--what a surprise. but its warmer outside (not far south they are getting freezing rain and sleet) so the bird feeders are filled and the henhouse is cleaned out. the road is a complete mess, so we are hunkering down in the house--I imagine we will work on the cabinets some today--maybe we can get that job closer to completion!
so Thursday I went a little over my calories--nothing much. but Friday I implemented what should be a good strategy--can't do it every day but for some days it will work out well.
because of my cholesterol thing that I am doing, I have to eat an ounce of almonds every day. well, 2T of almond butter is just about the right amount. so I had 2 slices of my low calorie bread, 2T almond butter, an apple, 1/2 c. milk and some baby carrots for lunch. this is one of my favorite lunches--quick, easy, well within my ranges and tastes good. subbing the almond butter for peanut butter means that this meal takes care of two of my cholesterol tasks--an ounce of almonds and an apple a day. so I was doing well on my calories and when rob came home we decided to go out to eat--since this is probably the only chance we will have to get out of the house for the next several days. went to a local greek place--and I decided to try the baked fish. it was a very nice mild whitefish--so that, 1/2 baked potato and a dinner salad made for a very nice dinner. and when I got home, my calories were slightly under my target, so I had a bowl of strawberries.
a very good way to recover from the day before.
have a great weekend and stay safe if you are under snow!

    I think your lunch sounds fantastic. It's always good to get two birds with one stone so to speak. Stay safe and warm!! I'm glad you got the snow and not the freezing rain. This storm missed us completely which is good since we had to drive a bit to a funeral.

    Hope your work on the cabinets went well!
