Food Of The Day: Bacon
When WW switched to the Points+ plan last November, there weren't as many happy Points surprises as there were disappointments, at least from my angle.
Most of the delicious carby goodness doubled or tripled in Points - I'm looking at you, bread - you, too, cereal.
Anyway, imagine my surprise when I realized bacon was a relative bargain due to its high-protein, low-carb makeup.
A couple of times a month I get a bacon jones, as was the case today, so I bought Oscar Meyer precooked bacon. Three slices are just 2 Points+. Hooray. And no bacon grease cleanup.
I toasted a Pepperidge Farm sandwich flat, covering one half with a wedge of Laughing Cow Blue Cheese and the other with 3 slices of bacon and made a cheesy bacon sandwich for 5 Points+. Nice "diet" food, eh?
10K training plan today called for only 2 miles. Awesome.
Except it was, like, the hardest 2 miles I've run in a while. And it was at the track. Should have been a walk in the park - or a run at the track - but I wasn't feeling it. However, I gutted it out and got it done.
