Happy Biggest Loser Day all! I think it is awesome that you all are chiming in on the 100% tracking challenge this week. I absolutely LOVE seeing you all share ideas with each other and I am learning new things too (like 0 points+ ways to flavor Greek Yogurt that I’ve never heard of!)
One thing a few of you asked me is how do I track ~ do I do it as I go along, at the end of the day or do I plan ahead? I tend to plan out what I am eating in general the night before since all of my meals and snacks tend to be eaten at work until dinner time. I find that planning it out gives me an idea of how many points+ I have at each meal/snack in case I want to swap it out. It also helps me make sure I am meeting my healthy guidelines and stay within my points+ range.
It honestly is not formal at all ~ I sometimes put everything in my online tracker then adjust throughout the day and sometimes, I just jot it all down. That being said, some days really do not go as planned.
Last night I had a great menu planned out, but, then I realized I wanted to eat at the Café since I was in training all day long.
Here is my Summary Tracker for today ~ Feel free to copy and paste this format and insert your food below.
- B ~ 1 cup fruit, Veggie Egg White Omelet (2 points+), 2 slices bacon (3 points+)
- L ~ Salad Bar Salad (8)
- S ~ Grande Nonfat decaf latte (3 points+)
- D ~ 3 crunchy Chipotle Chicken Tacos (15 points+)
- DS ~ none
Total 31 Daily Points+, listing your WPA used/balance is optional
I started off my day with a “caramel marshmallow” latte. Grande FF Decaf latte with a caramel drizzle on top. (3 points+)
A little caramel on top goes a LONG way and makes your latte taste just like a marshmallow.
Right before training we stopped by the Café ~ I couldn’t resist participating and ordered a Veggie Omelet (no cheese & cooked in nonstick spray), 2 slices bacon that I ate BEFORE took the picture (2 points+) and fruit.
We had a super short lunch break from training and I had just enough time to run down to the salad bar to make up lunch.
BEST WORK SALAD BAR EVER!!! I totally loaded up on veggie goodness today…..
Grilled Veggies ~ the smoky flavor makes it so you don’t need dressing.
I am IN LOVE with this Egg Salad….I am pretty sure they make it better than I could….maybe it’s that whole food taste better when someone else makes it for you. ( 4 points+)
Did I mention they had the MOST delicious fresh roasted beets too???
I am pretty sure I threw the kitchen sink in my salad today since everything looked amazing
~ Still, total DEAL at $7!
- Romaine, mixed greens & cabbage
- cucumber slices, tomatoes, freshly roasted beets!
- Grilled Veggies!
- Egg Salad (4 points+)
- 1 Tbsp each ~ garbanzo/kidney beans, peas, corn, dried cranberries & croutons(4 points+)
By the time I walked in the door, I was tired and we both did not feel like cooking. The Husband offered up going to Chipotle or cooking for us.
Ummm, I can NEVER resist these ~ I decided to go with the 3 Crunchy Chicken Tacos because they fill them so much that you end up with a salad after you eat them.(15 points+ or 5 points+/taco)
* 3 crunchy corn taco shells with chicken, pico de gallo, corn salsa, cheese & lettuce
Ok, your turn…..What’s on your tracker today? Oh, and if you are watching Biggest Loser ~ what did you think of tonight’s show???
