Opening Day

Yesterday afternoon I headed over to Kauffman Stadium to watch the Royal’s home opener.


I always love opening day because it is one of the few days that the stadium is completely full of cheering fans- hopeful for the season ahead.

That was until the game started and everyone was booing after the other team scored 7 runs in the first inning.  Ouch. 

Even though we lost and even though Dan had to work and couldn’t make it to the game, I still had a great time.  I was able to sit with my sister and some friends and chit chat while enjoying some amazingly delicious nachos. 


I haven’t had cheese dip in quite some time – and these were worth every. single. point.

After the game I rode along with my dad and sister to my grandparents’ house to pick up Kauffman.  On the way home we stopped at Baskin Robbins and I enjoyed 2 scoops of their no sugar added caramel turtle flavor (8). 

Nachos and ice cream – dinner of champions.

Good thing I had oatmeal and fruit for breakfast,


and a salad for lunch.



I treadmilled 3 miles while laughing at New Girl.

Thought for the day:

Points Breakdown:

Daily points (30) + Activity Points (6)- Eating points (43) = -7

Weekly Points (49) – Mon (0) – Tues (5) –Wed (1) + Thurs (1) – Fri(7) = 37

5 servings of fruits and veggies

whole grains when possible

2 servings of dairy

2 tsps of oil FAIL

lean protein

limit sugar and alcohol


Water: 100 oz.


  1. Nachos and icecream sounds like a good dinner to me!

  2. That nacho cheese looks delicious and it just dawned on me where Kauffmann got his name! lol Glad you enjoyed the game. :)

    1. Good catch! :)

      My sister and brother in law are huge Royals fans. Pluts - I think it is a really cool name.

    I have so enjoyed reading your blog the past few months. Can you tell me more about the overnight oats? How many points plus is it? What exactly are rolled oats?

    1. Hi Lori! Thanks for reading! I really appreciate the support.

      Overnight oats are awesome! It is very hard to assign a specific PP value to them because you can mix the recipe up to your choosing. But, the basic recipe is 1/3 C of old fashioned oats, 1/3 C FF plain greek yogurt, and 1/3 C of no sugar added vanilla almond breeze, and 1 T of chia seeds (optional). Mix all that in a bowl the night before and refrigerate overnight. The next morning you have a yummy breakfast which you can add anything to - fruits, peanut butter, chocolate chips, etc. The basic recipe is 4 PP (calculated in recipe builder). Rolled oats (to me) is just another way of saying old fashioned oats. I didn't even realize I called them that. :)

      I hope that answered your question! Have a great rest of your weekend!

  4. Thanks for the reply. I am going to try that this week for my breakfast. I love getting new ideas for breakfast and lunch as I tend to eat the same thing day after day.I have been really struggling with ww and running the past 6 weeks. I went for a run yesterday for the first time in about 8 weeks. It felt good to get back out there but boy am I sore today. I guess I will be doing an easy run today to loosen up.
    One more question do you have to use almond breeze or can you use skim milk?

    1. Yep! Skim milk would work perfectly! Let me know what you think of them!

  5. I like how you combine your healthy lifestyle without letting it get in the way of fun... just balancing it all out! ;-)

  6. Okay so I tried the overnight oats this morning. I didn't like it. I think it was the natural greek yogurt with no flavor. I added honey and banana and a little peanut butter in this morning. Should I have put those in the night before?

    1. No, you don't have to. But you can add cinnamon and Splenda / Truvia the night before. Another think you could try is flavored yogurt. I don't use those, because it is more points, but many people do and love them that way.

      Did it taste OK after you added the honey, banana, pb? If you didn't like it after all the toppings, maybe overnight oats aren't for you. I have read that some people just don't like them...but I love them! :)
