I promised you a review of “the new cereal”. So here it is: Jodi suggested that I try the new Strawberry Frosted Mini Wheats, well I must say I was a little apprehensive, but I bought it anyway. I knew I was doomed when Jay was excited that we were getting that kind, because he “really likes Frosted Mini Wheats” this means it did not really matter if I liked it or not, I might get 2 servings and then the box would be empty, but I digress… So, anyway back to the cereal – I was not brave enough to try it Thursday, however, I did try 1 biscuit “dry” this morning. It was OK, but I still was not sure that I wanted to waste my milk on them. I decided to check out the serving size and point value before I made my final decision. Well, good news, 24 biscuits are only 3 points. WOW!!! That’s a lot for only a few points. So that I could give you the review that you deserved, this is what I did (seeing as I was running late and did not really have time to sit down and eat a whole bowl of cereal anyway) I took a 1 point Strawberry yogurt cups and added 1 tablespoon of Lite Cool Whip (that's another story/trick for another day, remind me) and 6 crushed Strawberry Frosted Mini Wheats and taa daa, breakfast on the go for a mere 2 points. I also had chocolate milk, for another 2 points (1 package of Lite/Low Calorie Carnation Instant Breakfast mixed in 1 ½ cups of milk – the package only calls for 1 cup, but I like it better with more milk). And how crazy is it that it’s now 11:15 and I’m not hungry?!?! Usually I can have a bowl of cereal or 2 waffles with my chocolate milk and I’m starving by 10:00. All that said: I’m not sure if I’ll ever acquire a taste for the Mini Wheats alone, but they make a great addition to yogurt. So, thanks Jodi for the suggestion, it was a good one!!!
In other accomplishments:
I drank ALL 48 ozs. of water yesterday, YAY!!!! We went to the gym last night and I walked 2 miles on the treadmill in about 35 minutes. YAY!!!! And, I’ve finished 1 bottle of water for today, only 2 to go (NO “YAY”, yet).
I’ll check back in late Sunday when we return from the in-laws. Wish me well with my food choices over the weekend and a weekend with the in-laws!! :)
Also, on Sunday I’ll do the Restaurant MeMe that I was tagged with. (I know you are on the edge of your seat waiting, right?!?)
