White Chocolate

Just finished a 1.5oz chunk of really good white chocolate (I don't like white chocolate but Love White Chocolate from the local chocolate shop).  That cost me about 7 WW points :-(

Oh well.  Looks like my supper is going to be: Egg whites with veggies, salsa, toast and some fruit.
No worse for the ware I just need to be aware.  I've found egg white sandwiches to have been my saviour on many an occasion when I get a little overboard with the calories during the day.
I whip up a couple egg whites (sometimes three depending on how hungry I am).  Put it in the microwave with some salt and pepper.  Serve between two pieces of whole wheat toast with salsa (or ketchup) and sauteed onions.  Yum!

Hmmmm.... I also have a head of cauliflower in the fridge.  I think I may make some cauliflower soup or cauliflower mashed potatoes:  boil cauliflower add your seasoning and put in a blender or food processor with some liquid (water or chicken broth to your taste). Enjoy!  I'm sure some of you may be saying yuck!  It's funny if you said to me a couple years ago that I would be eating egg whites and cauliflower mashed potatoes I would say Huh? - say what? 

Tonight is my WW meeting weigh in.  It will be interesting to see what the scale says.  After eating all that white chocolate I feel like I have a brick sitting in the bottom of my stomach (it tasted good at the time but now I have the feeling of yuck! in my belly).

Today I ran 3.5 miles on a track and it felt great.  I find whenever I have pent up negative energy or worries running seems to get that energy out and I feel more relaxed and rejuvenated. 

Tomorrow will be another workout day for me.  I'm going to run 3.5 miles and get some weight training in as well.  My next big run will be this Saturday of 5 miles with hills outside.  Feeling a little bit nervous about it.  People are going to show up and run with me.  I find that exciting and scary.  The scary part is can I do it?  Can I run 5 miles?  My answer: No Matter What!

Update: The scale at my WW weigh in said I was a +.4lb  :-(  Oh well.  I'm not going to stress about it.  The scale at my WW meeting weigh in last week was a -3.4lbs.  I'm just going to make sure I really work hard this week.
