Just another Manic Monday

I always feel like Mondays are my days for regaining control. Not that I was out of control last weekend but I always seem to be more lenient on the weekend and Mon-Fri are sort of my strict days. After getting very little sleep last night and having that awful time change, I'm super tired today and had to really push myself this morning to get out of bed.

When I woke up I had decided to throw caution to the wind and have a WW Bagel for breakfast and I was WAY too tired to make lunch so I was settled on taking a frozen dinner (the white pasta high carb kind) Then I thought about those high carb foods, and how they may affect my weight loss and changed my mind. I got my butt in gear and sliced up some Cantaloupe and yogurt for breakfast and cut up some veggies to have a wrap for lunch. I am actually quite proud of myself but hopefully in the future I will be pre-planning a little more to avoid more bad decisions.
The Flat out Wraps are delicious!! They are only 1 point AND they only have 16 grams of carbs (compared to Demspter's which have 26 g of carbs). Last night I topped the Italian Herb kind with pizza sauce, some low fat cheddar and turkey pepperoni and it was great! And so much lower in points that regular pizza dough!

Today for lunch, I packed one wrap up with spinach, zucchini slices, shredded carrot, green peppers, and red onions and of course I added a little hummus and some fat free Italian Dressing. It was out of this world good! As far as wraps go, I would definitely give this one a 10!! I would make the drive back down to Calais JUST for these wraps! They are even better in a veggie wrap then for mini pizzas. There are sooo many great things you could make with them.
