Hi all! I am so excited to finally be able to share with you all my new adventures in “Bean Counting“. I am officially starting my new job tomorrow at a truly awesome company that aligns so much with my personal passion.
They are the second largest producer of vegetable seeds in the world and the subsidiary I am working at focuses on the research side. I love that they are passionate about sustainability, feeding the world population and that the Farmers participate at every level (think co-op). I can’t wait even though I am a little sad my 4 month break is over.
I made sure to soak up the sunshine and my last weekday Tower Hike yesterday.These baby cows were so cute & curious.View from the top.Followed up with a delicious Thai Lunch at Buddha Thai.Today I got prepared like going back to school with new shoes, pens, pencils, lunchbox and water bottle 😀I also bought a new FitBit Charge 2 yesterday too. It wasn’t really part of the plan but my Charge HR band is starting to split.
The new features of the Charge 2 seem pretty cool too. Now, I just need a name for my new C2.Breakfast before heading out – my last zero point chicken apple sausage, 1 scrambled egg and a Trader Joe’s ”fried” hash brown patty cooked in 1 tsp avocado oil (5 sp).I did a double workout today just in case I do not get the chance tomorrow. C25K 4.2 and Jillian Michael’s Body Revolution.
Since I was heading into Napa, I was tempted to have lunch out. I decided I was not craving any restaurant and made up a plate of everything I wanted instead. Success!
2 oz buffalo chicken, 1 Banana Berry Muffins (4 sp), 1 Tbsp pistachios (1 sp) and an apple.Post shopping snacks – banana and mini Jarlsberg Swiss stick (2 sp).I had a hard boiled egg to keep my hunger in check when I found out we we’re having dinner late and out.The Husband surprised me by saying I should have my last night off free from cooking lol. Truth be told, he knew we had a gift card for Outback burning a hole in his pocket!
I never know what the WW app means when they say 1serving for Outbacks bread. Instead, I calculated a dinner roll with a little whipped butter for 5 sp.This gave me a chance to see how close I got with my healthy Outback Salad recipes this weekend. I have to say, it tastes really close to the same. (4 sp for salad plus 1/3 of the dressing).I ordered steamed lobster (which is zero!) with steamed green beans. The lemon on the side is enough but I counted 2 sp as it looks like they used a little butter with the spice.23 Daily WWFreestyle Smartpoints, 15K steps – I might have a piece of See’s Candy for dessert.
