Happy Monday all! Thanks to all of your for your comments on yesterday’s post. You all seriously have a way of motivating and inspiring me by sharing your struggles with me. Oh and The Husband said thanks for the comments on his Mom’s Day Cards. He definitely is a hoot!
This morning I was back at it with my 5 AM workout ~ I hopped on the treadmill and rocked my 30 minutes of Couch to 5K! As crazy as it sounds, it is my 5 AM workouts that make it a million times easier to tackle any challenges that my day brings.
On my way in, I stopped for a Dirty Coconut Coffee! I am so excited that Starbuck’s has their coconut syrup back ~ it’s the little things! I’ve been waiting for this syrup ever since they stopped making it last fall!
(iced coffee with 1 pump mocha + 1 pump coconut with a splash of 1/2 & 1/2) 2 points+
You know the totally random part about my Dirty Coconut Combo ~ I do NOT like Almond Joys or Mounds Bars, but, I totally imagine this drink is what they probably taste like
Breakfast involved a Maple Morning Star Veggie Sausage (2 points+)
Eaten with a big bowl of melon while I packed up The Husband’s Lunch.
No matter how many times I am rushing to get out the door, I always make his lunch even if it means I “have to” buy mine at the café.
I ended up with my new favorite thing ~ Mini Ham and Cheese.
On my roll, 1 slice Ham, 1 slice swiss, lettuce and baked lays (7 points+)
Plus Veggies on the go!
Sometimes it is the simple things that are so completely delicious.
Dessert x’s~ the “secret” to portion control ~ making sure they are sitting in a bowl in front of your co-worker (2 points+)
The Husband had dinner ready as soon as I walked in the door! I knew all I had to do was buy his FAVORITE Bill Bailey Carne Asada and he would be all about cooking for us
I made up TWO Carne Asada burritos topped with 4 oz Grilled Carne Asada and 1 oz of reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese.
Then, I topped them with a bunch of spice and crunch ~ jalapenos, romaine blend, tomatoes, green onions and 1/4 avocado.
12 points+ for both! I added hot sauce and drizzled with 0% Greek Yogurt post picture.

I have to say having dinner on the table as soon as I walked in the door made everything right in my day….then, seeing your comments on my post yesterday put everything in perspective and made my day!
