Happy Monday all! I kept my promise of getting up early to get my jog/walk on and got right back to it today. I could totally tell it had been awhile since I’ve bonded with the treadmill because I was completely sucking wind LOL…I just kept telling myself each step, each day will get better, this is just my “new” starting point. I felt so proud after it was over and it definitely set the rest of my day up for success.
All weekend long I have been craving Shredded Wheat with cinnamon and bananas…in that order too. I normally avoid cereal because I am almost always hungry after an hour ~ Shredded wheat is one except.
3/4 cup Shredded Wheat w/1 Banana & 1 cup Milk (100% SF) – 5 points+
Mid morning snacks ~ Watermelon & a Sargento Light Colby Stick (SF) – 2 points+
Almost every Monday we have a working lunch meeting where we get to have these amazing sandwiches, salads and cookies from a local deli. I love them so much it makes me want to switch Meatless Monday to another day just so I can have my 1/2 a sandwich!
1/2 Chipotle Turkey with Pepperjack on a homemade Dutch crunch roll (7 points+)
Oatmeal Cinnamon Raisin goodness (totally worth the points+) 4 points+
All together with a little Caesar Salad (2 points+)
At our Wine Company we celebrate birthday’s and anniversaries with wine ~ Not Cake
Today we toasted one of my co-worker’s 5 year Anniversary with our new Sparkling Italian Wine called Da Luca Prosecco.
I really like the fizz and it’s a nice change since the flavor it not sweet at all and pairs perfectly with salty, crunchy snacks. (2 points+)
Yesterday when we were planning out our menu for the week and grocery shopping, I let The Husband pick out some meats he wanted to barbecue. It’s totally my secret to get him to cook but he doesn’t know it.
Grilled Pork Chops! I had 4 oz of this on the bone side ~ he had the rest (4 points+) (SF)
Served up with a 3/4 cup side of big shells and cheese (7 points+)
Plus simple salads tossed with 1 Tbsp. Newman’s Light Lime Vinaigrette (1 points+)
