Happy Wednesday all! Thanks for sharing all your Starbuck’s drink ideas on yesterday’s post ~ I have so many new ideas to try ~ as if my “Bucks” addiction wasn’t already too much. Is that even possible? I mean you can make almost any drink 0 points+ and I can totally justify checking off a dairy with lattes LOL.
It also totally helps for days like today when I hit snooze one too many times then rush out the door. Can you believe I actually pondered this…..
I haD time for one thing and only one thing…..COFFEE OR GAS??? Which one do you think one……
I seriously pondered if I could make it to work on my 44 miles remaining….Sad, but, true lol
As I rushed out the door, I snapped a quick picture of my banana as I ate my morning star veggie sausage (2 points+).
I honestly wish I had more of a substantial breakfast since my morning flew by with meetings and the first chance I had to stop was the going away luncheon for my co-worker at Round Table Pizza.
I was way too hungry, but, told myself I needed to start with a BIG salad before I even considered pizza.
In the mix:
- Salad Greens
- Tomatoes, Carrots, Cucumber, Bell Pepper
- 3 bean salad (1 point+)
- 1 Tbsp sunflower seeds & 1 Tbsp raisins (2 points+)
- 1 Tbsp Cheese and a few croutons (1 points+)
- Egg (2 points+)
- 1 Tbsp Ranch on the side for fork dipping (2 points+)
1 slice medium Hawaiian Pizza & 1 slice medium veggie pizza ~ I may or may not have gone back for another slice and had 1/3 of a cinnamon stick. Not my BEST decisions, but, not bad considering it was an all you can eat buffet and I could’ve eaten a lot more (12 points+)
Since it was across the street from Starbuck’s and I missed out on getting my fix this morning
Tall, Nonfat, Decaf Latte with caramel drizzle (3 points+) ~ for the record, a tall and grande are the same points+.
When I asked The Husband what he wanted for dinner he told me BFD!!!
For some reason I cannot get into ANY breads since Trader Joe’s ditched my favorite one….It’s like I’d rather just go without.
I decided my Breakfast for Dinner (BFD) was going to be in the form of a Breakfast Burrito!
I started off with these 1 points+ Sonoma Tortillas I get at Trader Joe’s, then, I layered on 2 Tbsp Low-Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese and 1 slice of Apple Wood Smoked Bacon ~ the real deal!
Next, add 3/4 cup “fried” Ore Ida Western Potatoes (only 1 points+)
Finish with 1 scrambled egg with chives…..
and a little Sriracha to spice things up.
Wrap it up and enjoy every single HEALTHY cheesy, bacon-y, potato bite for 7 points+!
I have to confess that somehow exercise has fallen off my list this week. I am making it a point to find “me” time and get my walk on tomorrow!
STATS (12 am – 830 pm)
- Calories burned 2,288
- Steps Taken 4,533
- 32 points+ used (plus, I am adding 5 WPA to the mix since I did get a little crazy at lunch)
Tomorrow is going to be a better day because I am making it all about doing the right things ~ tracking, movin’ it and water.
