Can I get a whoot whoot!

First, I would like to congratulate the NLE champion Philadelphia Phillies! Wahoo! The world series this year might turn out the way Penguin predicted...Yankees vs Phillies. Oh man, what would I do! Anyway, I thought that since this is a new month, I would again try to do a blog a day about the goings on here on the igloo. If you remembered, I blogged about Penguin and I reducing our carbs, and apparently, I am the only one who is sticking to that. Penguin insists that he is cutting down his carbs, yet he can eat an entire pint of ice cream in one sitting! I, on the other hand, have really tried to stick to this plan. I am currently loving Smartones foods and desserts, and suprisingly to me, they make me full. I am also snacking better both at work and at home. At work, I have my own jar of reduced fat peanut butter and I simply bring in celery. (I was once told by my grandmother that I should eat celery instead of potato chips, so I am trying to do what she suggested). I also try to count my ww points even though I am not on it. For instance, yesterday for breakfast I had a Smart ones english muffin breakfast sandwich.It was yummy! It was only 4 points, and filled me up. Then of course I went to bed (still waiting on my delivery from enell) and slept until about 2. When I woke up at 2, I had some FF Dannon vanilla yogurt with 2 tablespoons of mini chocolate chips. For dinner, I had Pregresso's Healthy Choice Chicken Noodle soup and since I was hungry, I ate the entire was still only 2 points for the entire jar! I had that and 2 servings of the salad that Penguin made and the appropriate serving of RF Ranch Dressing (2 tbsp for a serving). After dinner I felt full, not stuffed, but satisfied. About 2 hours ago, I got hungry at work and busted out my peanut butter and celery. Soon, it will be lunch time and I will be eating a Smart Ones meal (I believe it is 5 points), some yogurt and a serving of the chocolate mini rice cakes. I have also made sure to increase my fluid intake. Lately I have felt that I was dry, really really dry. So, to make up for it I drink water when I am at work, instead of snack out of boredom. On a really boring day, I believe I have drank 2.5L of water! Right now, I am only at 500mL, but my water bottle is empty so I better go get more. Hope everyone has had a great week so far. We made it past hump day..the weekend is almost here!

here you go: delicious, low carb snack for you, courtesy of your old pal and matron of honor rockle:

1/2 c. cherry or grape tomatoes, cut in half, with a 1/2 rib of celery, cut into thin slices, 2 tsp. of bacon bits (real or imitation) and 1-2 tbsp. of low fat ranch dressing (or low fat thousand island, if you prefer that and can find it) -- it's creamy, acidic, crunchy, and tangy all at once, and it will help with sweet AND salty cravings. the whole thing is about 5 points (if you use the whole allotment of dressing, but check the labels).
