The kids are sick today. Not sure with what headache, slight fever, nothing major. But we are completely homebound for the weekend.  I'm not sure when the next time I'll see the light of day. 

Sadly, the only thing good about being at home is that my eating schedule stays in place.  We're not running around town or grabbing things at the last minute. See, I'm trying to look on the bright side of things!

I did eat good today. I had about 1400 calories.  For me that's good.  I tracked the calories too! I didn't just eat and then figure it out at the end of the day like I have been doing.  If I keep tracking, I can do this. I know I can.

I didn't exercise at all. We pretty much watched movies and napped. Yes, I took a nap. Naps are awesome.

I made these teriyaki broccoli slaw wraps.  We ate them for lunch and dinner. They are seriously my favorite food. I could just make a huge batch at the beginning of the week and just eat them all week.  Tasty, low calorie and filling.  What else do I need?!

I watched 2012 on Netflix Instant Watch. Not impressed. I've seen those "end of the world" movies and the good ones actually make you believe that it could actually happen. Not this one.  Yes, they are all "larger than life" but this one seemed way over the top.  Something to do while planning next weeks meals and going through some cooking magazine though. 

Wow, it's late.  That's what I get for napping.  Sorry, this has been quite the boring post.  Sad that it's been an indoors day with sick kids but good that I didn't use that as an excuse to make (and inhale) cookies or something. 


  1. The wraps look great!

    What a wonderful quiet day with the g'kids.

  2. LOL, I don't think your post is boring! Hoping that everyone feels better in your home soon!

    I have seen the wraps on Jenny's blog. They look pretty appealing wrapped in lettuce and in tortilla (like you made).

    I need to get my son over here to set my Wii up with the internet. For some reason I can't seem to get it to work - and I really want the Netflix Instant Watch on my TV! lol I went to see 2012 when it came out to the theater and didn't care for it either. I guess you have seen one you have seen them all. I liked the Day After Tomorrow much better.

    Oh and one more thing before I go - I should be as good as you and count calories. I don't. I'm too lazy to most of the time. My bad!
