Hi!!! Oh, and my lunch!

Hi there! April here, although you may know me from Abby Sweets. That is my baking blog, which is probably why I am now here at What's the Point. Having a blog that is nothing but baking sweets has caused my backside to spread and is one of the main factors that my blood sugars are not where they should be. Yes, like Beth, I am a diabetic. Right now, I am on oral medications for it, but I have no control with my food choices and insulin injections will be my next step. I am announcing right is my goal not to have to take that next step.

I am so excited to be on this journey, if you will, with these two girls. We will keep each other accountable, motivate, share recipes...probably gripe and whine a whole lot, and that will be ok. Well, as long as we are making ourselves healthier, as well as my family. Hey, I cook it...they gotta eat it, might as well make it all healthy, right?

I will be doing my weigh ins on Monday's. I have made it to work this morning...weighed in (almost puked because of it) but I am feeling confident this morning that with meal planning we will do just fine. Now, I will share with you what I will be having for lunch. I am still having a little problem on breakfast pass them along if you have any.

I love these deli thins. Have you tried them? You should. They are 100 calories for the whole bun, top and bottom and they are only 1 point!

I will be having cucumber spread on them. I love cucumber sandwiches in the summer. With the heat index being at least at 105 if not higher, it makes for a light lunch. And made with FF cream cheese, you can have 4 Tbsp of the spread for 1 point. That makes your sandwich, with a nice filling, for only 2 points!!

Not a great pic, but you can see what it looks like. :)

I will be having my 2 point sandwich with 9 multigrain Tortilla chips for 3 points and my homemade salsa, with is a freebie!! So there you have my 5 point lunch! My daily point range is 22-27, so I still have alot of points to play with for my breakfast, snack and dinner.

The one thing I keep telling myself is all about CHOICES. Girls, we can do this!

Cucumber Sandwich Spread:

1 medium cucumber, peeled and finely chopped or grated

8 oz. FF cream cheese, softened

2 tsp mayo

Seasoned Salt, to taste

Mix all the ingredients together until completely combined and store in the refrigerator.
