The Battle of the Bulge

January 20, 2008 at 11:19 am 1 comment

I took care of a patient last week who had survived the Battle of the Bulge during WWII. He was a pleasure to take care of. Full of spunk and interesting stories. I love old people. Have I said that before? I really do. They are so full of wisdom and charm. Well, most of them.

An update on my personal Battle of the Bulge. I think I did really well yesterday. I staid on my food plan, even though I was really hungry. The fish I made for lunch was really good though. I ended up still having 20 points to use at Fridays. I have no idea how many points I used, but I’m sure I was in range or very close. I got the Jack Daniels chicken. I was planning on only eating one of the two chicken breasts that it comes with, but they were both paper thin, so I ate them both. They came with a veggie mixture of green beans and broccoli, and I ate maybe 2/3 of the mashed potatoes. I also got a salad. I did have regular ranch dressing on it since their light dressing selection leaves much to be desired.

Boot Camp

I also did the first 30 minute section of Denise Austin’s Boot Camp video. It kicked my butt and my legs were sore for the rest of the day. That’s crazy considering it was only 30 minutes and the workout tapes I usually do are an hour. I did pull something in my neck I think, so my neck and shoulder are pretty sore today. Here’s my plan for today.

B-Oatmeal (2)

L-This shrimp and Pirogies thing I make. I’ll have to figure out points for it as I go along. I’ll post that recipe on here sometime.

D- Chicken Spaghetti from Piooner Woman . I’ll have to figure out points for it too. If I have points left over I’ll eat a Weight Watcher ice cream bar.

I’m going to at least do something to work out. We’ll see what video I grab. My other goal today is to try to finish unpacking some more stuff, so I’ll be climbing stairs a lot probably since this place is 3 stories.

    I’m battling that bulge too. I hate it, the bulge and the battle. Good luck!
