Happy Wednesday all! Tonight’s post is going to be FAST since I am just now getting to it and need to catch some zzzzz’s for my 5 AM treadmill session.
Since I had to drive into the office today, I decided to get a “Buck’s” for the road.
How many of you knew that a fat free latte hot or cold is a Simply Filling Food? Total justification to add one to your day and check off your dairy too LOL>
Venti Iced Dirty Latte (Nonfat, decaf, latte with 1 pump Mocha) (4 points+) ~ You would count 1 WPA for the mocha if you are following Simply Filling.
I rounded out my breakfast with 2 more Simply Filling Foods ~ a perfectly hard boiled egg and a banana (2 points+)
3 hours later I was starving and I knew I would not be having lunch for 2 more hours.
Snacks ~ Organic Pink Lady Apple with a Sargento Lite String Cheese (1 points+) ~ count 1 WPA for the cheese on Simply Filling or have Fat Free Cheese and count nothing.
For some reason my brain was really NOT functioning at all this morning. I managed to put together a few Bits and Pieces this morning to make up what I had for lunch. The result was actually pretty tasty, but, it was a little too light on protein to keep me satisfied for long.
I started with a big salad topped with crunchies (1 Tbsp Black Pepper Almond Slices and 1 Tbsp “fried” onions) (2 points+).
Drizzled with 2 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Low-Fat Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (2 points+)
With a Side of the Weight Watchers Pinch of Pepper Pretzel Crisps we got on Sunday and 2 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Roasted Red Pepper Hummus (5 points+)
I LOVE this hummus and the Spicy Hummus….both have peppers or salsa in the middle to add in extra flavor.
1 Points+ per Tablespoon and it’s delicious as a veggie/chip dipper, on sandwiches or in wraps.
I am not really sure I really tasted any black pepper on the pretzels, but, they were pretty delicious when dipped in the red pepper hummus.
Dessert ~ watermelon and cantaloupe.
My entire day was 100% on track and I was feeling good about my day. I had some of my favorite almonds planned for snack and thought for some reason I could have just one……
One, led to two, which led to 3++….The ONE thing that saved me from going to town on the candy dish was lining the wrappers up on my desk so I have a visual picture of how many MINI’s I was eating.
When I saw 6, I stopped *sigh* Counted the 6 points+ and made myself commit to tracking every single one as much as I wanted to forget about “my moment”.
When I walked in the door, The Husband had dinner ready ~ I LOVE him! He seriously knows how to make long days better…..
Then again, I also know pulling out his FAVORITE Bill Bailey’s Carne Asada out of the freezer this morning would encourage him to get his grill on
Carne Asada Taco Salads
- Organic Mixed Greens, Romaine, Carrots, Red Cabbage & Rainbow Slaw
- Organic Cherry Tomatoes
- 1 oz LF Cheese (2 points+)
- 4 oz Bill Bailey’s Carne Asada (4 points+)
- 4 Tortilla Chips crumbled for crunch (1 points+)
- 2 Tbsp Newman’s Lite Lime Vinaigrette (2 points+)
