Meals for 9/10/09

Good Morning everyone...I hope your all having a great day! I didn't have such a good night last night. First I couldn't get to sleep...I was tired from the meds for my mouth but just couldn't fall asleep. I think the last time I looked at the clock it was 1:30am. Woke up at about 9:00 this morning and my mouth is really hurting today. I tend to clench my mouth shut at night and I think it is irritating my gums. I will give it through the weekend and if it isn't better I will call the dentist. I don't know what else he can do...its not infected or anything just sore. I am icing it this morning and that seems to help a little.

Anyway enough of my whining! Thank you all for hanging in there with me with this...I got up and went to the grocery store to get some more soft stuff to eat. I found some Progresso soup that is only 1 point! That will be nice to have for lunch...and some more pudding and yogurt. I also have been craving Cream of Wheat...its something that I remember my Dad making for breakfast for himself sometimes and it is very smooth so I got some and one serving is 3 points. Here is what I had:

Cream of Wheat = 2 points
WW Berry yogurt = 1 point
Cantaloupe = 1 point
Total points for Breakfast = 4 points

Today I am going to take it easy...we have a picnic tonight for the apartment complex to meet some neighbors. We are excited about going. I won't be eating anything unless they have something soft but Kevin will probably have a hot dog or something...I will catch you all later:)

Hello...sorry for the late post. I called my dentist to ask about the pain that I am having and if there is anything else I can do. Most of the problem is at night when I clench my teeth. He asked me to come in and he was going to mold a piece on my front teeth to wear at night. He needed me to come right in because they are closed tomorrow and the weekend. So I went over and he made this for me in 20 minutes and I will give that a try. He looked at my gums and said they are looking really good for just 2 days after surgery. He did suggest I eat some cold foods like ice cream...but being on WW I wasn't about to go buy a gallon of ice willpower isn't good enough to have just one serving. I stopped and got a Frosty from Wendy's because it was 3:00 and I hadn't eaten lunch yet. It felt so good on my gums..but that is it...I don't feel right eating a Frosty when I should be eating something much healthier.

I am excited for the complex picnic tonight..I gave Riley a bath so he can go since I won't be eating I can take care of him. I also stopped and got a storage space so that we can store some of our Christmas stuff and when we get a Christmas tree we will have somewhere to store it. We have 3 closets in this apartment and they are stuffed with clothes and Christmas stuff. I can actually use the closets for linens and have a bedroom closet where the clothes can hang freely and not have stuff wrinkling the was a really good price per month and alot of space that we can use! It was hard going from a 4 bedroom 2 bath house to a one bedroom 1 bath and Den...and the den I can finally make into our craft/office.

Wendy's frosty = 12 points

Tonight I will be having one of my Smart ones dinners...I will post it when we get back from our picnic:)

Just got back from the was fun! They BBQ'd hamburgers and hot dogs and had pasta salad and some potatoes (looked like they were slathered with butter and garlic), Brownie bites and watermelon. I ended up having a hot dog (plain with no bun) and about a cup of pasta salad. And then I brought home some watermelon. It was fun meeting some new people. It was VERY windy and actually pretty cold! They had drawings for prizes and Kevin won a $25.00 gift card to Starbucks...we stayed for an hour and decided to come home. Riley had some fun with a few dogs that came...and really wanted to go after the ball the kids were playing with! It is now 7:30 and dark outside...thats the only thing I hate about summer being over...I LOVE it when its sunny until 9:00...but in a month or earlier it will start getting dark around 5:00...:(

I didn't take any pictures of what I ate...didn't think about it..sorry.

Hot dog = 5 points
Pasta Salad = 6 points
Watermelon = 0 points
Total Points for Dinner = 11 points

Skinny Cow Chocolate Cone = 3 points


Hope you all have a great night!


  1. Enjoy your picnic. I hope your mouth feels better soon. That breakfast is just perfect!

  2. Sorry about the soreness hanging around...I'm assuming your dentist gave you some pain pills for a few days, right? Mine always gives me hydrocodone....anything over the counter is a joke when it comes to dental pain. If he didn't give you him now! :)

  3. Glad your pain wasn't anything serious! Have fun tonight!
