Peanut Butter and Challenges

September 11, 2009

I try to wake up each morning at 6:30 am. The last few nights though I’ve stayed up too late and my wake up times have been slowly inching up. The crazy thing is that my boys who normally sleep in till after 11 am (if I let them) have been getting themselves up early this week. Today my oldest son woke me up at 7:30 a.m. hoping to check his email and facebook. (Our upstairs computer is in my bedroom.) I missed out on my precious quiet time this morning. Two hours of alone time really helps get my day started on the right foot.


I was not very inspired for breakfast today. I whipped up some scrambled eggs and grabbed a banana from the bunches sitting on my counter.

~ 2 eggs, scrambled = 4 pts.

~ one banana = 2 pts.

Total = 6 pts.

I’ve been doing great the last few days getting back on program and eating the way I should. Now I really need to get back on track with my exercise. I paid for a one year gym membership I should at least get my moneys worth. This weekend is not looking good for any gym time. I have two more homeschool classes to finish up, Friday and Saturday, and then I get my certificate. I am thinking Monday I should hit the gym. Yup, I’ve decided, Monday it is. I challenge myself to go to the gym on Monday. I’ll reward myself with another star if i do it.

I just found a pretty cool challenge I’d like to participate in. Operation Fat Blaster is hosting The Biggest Loser: OFB Style! I signed up for Most Miles Walked and for Weight Loss. It’s the perfect challenge to get me motivated about exercising again.


Peanut butter is heavenly. I know I’d probably fail any diet that made me give up peanut butter all together. Another aspect of the Weight Watcher’s program that I love is that it teaches you how to eat ANYTHING in moderation. Lunch today was a peanut butter and raisin sandwich.

  • slice of bread = 2 points
  • 1/4 cup of raisins = 2 points
  • 1 Tbsp. peanut butter = 2.5 points

Total = 6.5 points


For dinner I made chicken and biscuits and then ended my evening with 1 cup of ice cream.

My Daily Points Target = 32
Total points spent = 27.5
Breakfast: scrambled eggs and a banana = 6 points
Lunch: peanut butter and raisin sandwich = 6.5 points
Dinner: chicken and biscuits = 9pts.
snack: 1 cup ice cream = 6pts.
