Happy Wednesday all! Thanks for sharing all of your “Must-See TV” shows for this fall and what you all are thinking about the “new” Biggest Loser. I honestly have “missed” Fall Shows (ok, here, I am going to “date myself” since Friends and Will & Grace went off the air….ohhhh and maybe Melrose Place and the original 90210. I used to totally look forward to those shows all week long. Grey’s Anatomy & for a little while Desperate Housewives entertained me, but, then, they got all serious and now I pretty much just watch Biggest Loser and anything on Food Network LOL.
I have to say I agree with you all ~ the guy new trainer isn’t bad ~ he seems like the real deal and knows what he is actually doing. Anna….while she seems like a nice girl and all, I just didn’t dig her not encouraging people on their weight loss ~ ANY LOSS in my book is good and “going longer” isn’t always the answer. Hopefully she will get better as the show goes on. I do LOVE the contestants this season and hopefully all that “drama” & “game play” they showed in the previews is just for show. I have watched Biggest Loser since the first season and my favorite seasons are when it’s about individual success stories/weight loss, not about “playing the game”.
Ok….soap box over (gahhhhh ~ I want to insert a smiley here LOL).
This morning started off with my usual “Egg-Wich” when The Husband mentioned doing something a little different……
Why not add some of that Trader Joe’s Peppered Turkey Bacon…..ummmm, ok!!!
Enter my 7 points+ BACONWICH that was freakin’ amazing!
I wasn’t “brave enough” to add jam to my bacon-wich, but, keeping the yolk a little runny made this my favorite new sandwich over my sausage-wich.
We spent the morning running around, checking things off our todo list’s & shopping a bit. I wasn’t super ready for lunch and honestly wanted my soup, but, The Husband said he was ready for lunch. We ended up a Rubio’s Mexican Grill.
I opted for their Health Mex Grilled Ono Fish Tacos because they had the LOWEST calories listed on the menu and they sounded tasty.. I LOVE that places put calories up now..
Grilled Ono topped with our roasted chipotle salsa and cabbage. Served on a stone-ground corn
I was totally right ~ It was 4 points+ for 1 taco & 7 points+ for two….I LOVE IT WHEN THAT HAPPENS!
I LOVED them too ~ they are not fishy at all ~ dare I say, they taste like chicken LOL. I added jalapeno slices and salsa for extra heat that went well with the cool cabbage & sweet corn.
The only downfall ~ if you eat all the chips & beans, it’s 16 points+. I kept 5 chips and tossed the rest on The Husband’s plate because I knew I’d eat them. I did eat my beans because they were only 2 points+.
I totally planned our dinner around having a BIG salad like yesterday. I actually used a jarred 4 bean salad, but, I have a recipe I need to make to share with you all. (2 points+)
The Husband made Trader Joe’s Baked Beans ~ he is HILARIOUS….his “secret” was adding a little BBQ sauce and mustard lol. I had to try them out since he went through all that effort.
1/4 cup = 1 points+
Served up with delicious grilled corn (2 points+) and 2 oz boneless pork rib (2 points+)
I am getting a little hungry now so I see a string cheese with a big bowl of melon & pineapple in my future.
What is one thing you are looking forward to this fall?
Ok, don’t laugh, but, aside from my new job and our November anniversary vacation….I LOVE all the Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas stuff. From the decorations to the celebrations, it’s one of my FAVORITE times of year….I could spend HOURS just walking around the stores looking at stuff….Oh and I LOVE soup season plus all things cinnamon.
