Jan. 25th What I ate....

Okay so last night I started to have a little cough and I thought nothing of it.  But this morning was another story!! I woke up feeling like utter crap.  You know that bottom of the barrel, totally wanna crawl back under the covers feeling?  But I had to get up and go to work anyways.  I woke up with this awful cold that is developing unfortunately that got passed to me by my hubby.  And I thought I did a good job of staying away from him while he was sick, but guess somehow it was passed along.  Today it didn't feel good to eat at all, because my throat feels like one big piece of sandpaper.  Ick!! I hate this feeling, but none the less I still followed my diet plan for today. : )  SO that is one positive note.

Breakfast - Sausage Egg McMuffin w/cheese with bottled water.  Coffee w/truvia and powdered creamer

Snack- Few pieces of salami and two pieces of cowpals cheese (this was going to be my lunch, but decided I needed chicken noodle soup for my throat, so this got turned into a snack)

Lunch- Chick-fil-a Chicken Noodle soup (large size is actually only 30g carbs and 4g sugars) But I believe the main hidden sugar in this is from the crazy amount of carrots that is in this soup.  So I just ate around them and only had the broth, chicken and noodles.  Let me just say it was extremely yummy and felt good on my really sore throat.

Dinner - I made pot roast with potatoes and carrots (since I feed more then just me)  I just ate a small piece of roast, a tiny taste of potato (just a piece or two to taste), a mix of steamed brocolli and cauliflower, and last a side salad with some of Ken's salad dressing.  (HINT= the Family Recipe dressing made by Ken's has no sugars and no carbs)  This is one of the best brands of dressing to choose from.

Well goodnight girls! = )  I am hoping tomorrow morning I will wake up and feel better, but I have a feeling this cold is one that last for a couple days. 

Remember to make all those healthy BFC choices. = )  I am already feeling much better just deciding to eat this way and for some reason this time its not even that hard.  Maybe cause I really really want it this time. : )


  1. Sorry to hear you're not feeling so hot! You ate well, and I hope tomorrow you have kicked it. Also thanks Lindsay for the two recipes you posted on your previous blog. I will try to make both items over the weekend. I love Guacamole too! So get well, and Ken's dressing is good.

  2. HI Lindsay, I hope you feel better soon, and you really did eat very good even though you are sick.

    @Rosalie and Minichick- thank you girls!! My throat doesn't feel so sand paper like today, but now there are a few other cold like symptoms. But I think by this weekend, I should be all good.
