Sunday Sundown

Today was a good day.

I was very productive once I logged off this morning. I decluttered and cleaned out the pantry and two kitchen cupboards.  I have a box of stuff waiting to the local fire hall tomorrow for a local food bank and two bags of stuff to be dropped off at Goodwill.  I even recruited Liam into helping me, he didn't want to, but once he saw I was getting rid of stuff, he was excited and kept saying, "Do we really need this?" "Can we get rid of this?"  Now, if he can keep that enthusiasm so I can tackle all the crap in the basement......

I met my friend Tina at Panera Bread and I had lunch there while I waited for her. I love their Creamy Tomato Soup.  It was nice to chat and catch up with her, I'm trying to convince her to do the Santa Shuffle as well.  She isn't quite sold yet, but I'll work on her!

Dinner was roast chicken, mashed potatoes, green beans and stuffing.  I was inspired by Andrea's Festive Special post and decided to improvise and create our own for tonight's dinner.  I had skinless, bone in chicken breasts and I brushed them with a mixture of olive oil, ground sage, garlic powder, salt and pepper and roasted them in the oven. They came out moist with a very crispy "skin".  Delicious.  No free chocolates though :) 

So far I am at 25/26 points and I will have a NSA Jello Chocolate Pudding before bed so that will put me right at 26/26 for the day.

Didn't get any exercise in today, unless you count bending and reaching and climbing to clean out the cupboards and carrying out heavy bags/boxes and sweeping/mopping the floor and scrubbing the counters - no wonder I needed to shower again before I headed out to meet Tina! 

It will be an early night tonight. I'm going to go throw my breakfast and lunch together for tomorrow and then read for a bit and go to bed.


  1. Dinner sounds delicious.

    I'm also working on the de-cluttering thing. It's a pain in the butt, but so well worth it when it's all done!

  2. Your festive special sounds delish!! I'll have to try that. (Although it's soooo much more fun to have someone deliver it to your door! Ha ha!)

  3. I think that house work does count as calorie burning on WW, doesn't it? I'm going to try your chicken recipe...sounds delicious and easy!
