Puppy love

I have to admit that I'm a little surprised with how good I've been eating. I haven't even been wanting to cheat or eat anything bad. (Please let it last...) Right now I'm mostly just eating healthy, writing everything I eat down and counting points in things, but not worrying about the "WW rules". Today I ate 23 out of my 33 pts. I honestly am not hungry throughout the day. This will be the test week of eating less than my daily pts, so we'll see what the scale says on Sunday.

Same old green smoothie (a cup of spinach, a banana, an orange, and 1/3 cup of vanilla yogurt). This is becoming an everyday thing. I love it. And later some Cheerios...
Lean cuisine for lunch. This one was pretty good.
And later some yummy, fresh pineapple...
And dinner was this recipe, which I cut in half, and only had half of so there's one leftover serving. I wanted to use up some ground beef and figured this would be healthy. It has finely chopped carrots and green bell pepper. I realized that I bought regular sour cream the other day instead of light (so upsetting, I know!) so that upped the cals a little. A little over a cup was 8-9 pts. Then out of curiosity I looked up the pts in a box of hamburger helper, which I always thought was unhealthy, but it had the same number of points... and is less work to cook.... interesting.
And then I tried this banana ice cream I've been meaning to try... ingredients? A banana. That's it. You just peel a banana, break it in half, and freeze it. Then you take it out, soften it a little and blend it in a food processor and out comes banana ice cream. This is awesome!! Try it, trust me.
Well I am off to enjoy the night with my puppy.. and since a few of you asked, here's a lil pic! She's a 7 month old maltipoo.
Attitude of Gratitude: It's warming up, the snow is melting and spring is almost here!

You can't taste the spinach in the smoothie, that's what makes it so good! I would so not drink it otherwise...
