Happy Friday Eve all!! I cannot wait to watch this season of the Biggest Loser after reading all of your thoughts. Work has been crazy busy this week, but, I have managed to totally stay on top of The Plan. I can honestly say I am having a FANTASTIC on track week and balancing it out.
This morning on my way into work, I stopped at Panera to bring bagels to work for my co-workers. I think I must’ve been really too tired or something because I ended up with just a FF Latte versus a Dirty Latte. (3 points+ and 100% SF).
I really wanted my FAVORITE cinnamon crunch bagel with honey walnut cream cheese. In fact, I even bought one to eat……but, when, I got to work I decided I wanted to start my day off right.
Can you believe I passed up BAGELS just to have my Asparagus Tortilla?! I am pretty sure I could sustain on bagels!
The crazy part….I felt empowered by it because I told myself if I wanted a bagel, I could have it. I really think “knowing” I could have it versus telling myself I couldn’t have it made me not really want it.
100% SF and 4 points+
It did help knowing I was going to have pizza later for our working lunch and I didn’t want to double up on my treats ~ it’s all about BALANCING IT OUT!
4 hours later, I powered up with a Trader Joe’s Lite String Cheese and pineapple (1 points+).
I started off with TWO slices ~ 1 ham & pineapple and 1 veggie (11 points+)
Then, filled half my plate with salad! (3 points+)
I am pretty sure Pizza and Salad qualify as two of my favorite food groups…..
Since I knew I was working late and I didn’t want to eat everything in the house when I did get home to make dinner, I snacked on an egg mid evening (2 points+)
After whipping up the best taco meat with Homemade Taco Seasoning, I pondered making a taco salad or tacos. When I saw The Husband’s taco shells, I decided I NEEDED my taco salad inside the shell
- 2 Mission Extra Thin Corn Tortillas (2 points+)
- 1/2 cup Turkey Taco Meat (2 points+)
- 2 Tbsp LF Sharp Cheddar Cheese (1 points+)
- 2 Tbsp Trader Joe’s Corn Salsa (1 points+)
- 2 Tbsp Wholly Guacamole (1 points+)
- Lettuce mix
Definitely worth every single bite ~ sometimes you need more than just a “salad”!
How do you all balance it out each day?
I honestly really try to focus on the 80/20 rule. I try to eat really healthy 80% of the time to make up for the 20% in treats I am going to have. I LOVE it when you make a decision based on what you CAN HAVE instead of thinking of it as what you CAN’T HAVE.
