It’s FINALLY Friday! That is what I woke up thinking this morning….well, about that and about The REAL DEAL BREAD! I am really focused on MODERATION this next week so I refrained from the bagels this morning.
Since it’s a NEW Weight Watcher’s Week ~ here is what I am focusing on:
1. Limit my carbs ~ not in the sense of going low-carb, but, if given the option, I’d have a bagel for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch and pasta for dinner…oh and probably some crackers or chips for snack.
~ So, this week, my goal is to have at least Lunch or Dinner as a Salad meal and to focus on FILLING FOODS (Lean proteins, dairy, fruits and veggies).
2. MOVE MORE ~ Focus on getting in 30 minutes of activity 5 days this week. It doesn’t have to be “intense”, I just need to break a sweat (like tonight where I cleaned house!)
I was going to say limit my dining out to nothing, but, seeing as I went out for 2 meals today, I didn’t want to think I “failed” already at that one.
My Weight Watchers Meeting was honestly what I really NEEDED this morning. I was a little bummed that I was up 1.6 lbs, but, I also know better than to have things like “sushi” before a weigh (hello sodium!).
Everyone really chimed in for today’s meeting and I left feeling completely motivated.
I also left with a NEW favorite quote thanks to my AWESOME LEADER!
“If you want to have a LITTLE BEHIND, then, you NEED to leave a “Little Behind”.
I LOVE THAT!
I picked up a Venti Iced Nonfat Decaf Latte with Caramel Drizzle on top after my meeting to get in my Dairy ~ it’s a FILLING FOOD! (3 points+)
My morning flew by as I checked a million things off my todo list. I had the privilege of having lunch today with The Husband and Tracey of TJ’s Test Kitchen.
We both totally wanted a Mary’s Pizza Shack Salad….Doesn’t it look awesome?
It really was as GOOD if not better than it looks:
* Romaine Lettuce
* Freshly shredded carrots
* Tomato Slices
* Homemade Bean Salad
* Sliced Fungus (Mushrooms! )
* Egg Slices
* 3 oz Grilled Chicken Breast
* The REAL DEAL Ranch on the side used for dipping with my fork.
10 points+ for the entire thing and we both scored MAJOR points by passing up the freshly baked sour dough bread and butter.
The Husband helped us out by eating it all ~ I am so jealous of his metabolism sometimes!
Midafternoon I had an Iced Coffee with 2 pumps coconut and a little 1/2 & 1/2 plus a BIG fruit bowl (2 points+)
The STAR of the bowl (aside from the pineapple!) was this PLURINE ~ it’s a cross between a pear & nectarine. I usually cannot wait each year for the Farmer’s Markets to get these.
Super Sweet, yet, crispy & crunchy like a pear.
I knew we were having a late dinner so when my stomach started growling about 3 hours later, I pulled out a single serving Annie’s Organic Cheddar Snack Mix & a Trader Joe’s Lite String Cheese (1 points+).
4 points+ for the entire bag.
Cheesy, salty, crunchy and it’s totally fun to eat bunny and carrot shapes!
Dinner tonight was at Chipotle. I pondered my usual Chicken Salad bowl, but, when, they told me they were out of Guacamole, I went with 3 Crunchy Chicken Tacos.
I use Chipotle Fan to calculate the points+ by picking what I stuffed in my shells ~ each taco comes out to be 4 points+.
* 3 crunchy corn taco shells (you can order soft corn or flour, but, why would you?!)
* The BEST Grilled Chicken
* Red HOT Sauce
* Pico de Gallo
* Corn Salsa
* 1/2 a sprinkle of cheese
Crunchy, salty, spicy ~ good…now, if I only had that guac too

What is your FAVORITE thing to order at Chipotle? If you don’t have a Chipotle, what do you want to order?
I have to say I’ll eat anything and everything there if it comes with their guacamole. It’s honestly the BEST guacamole. I LOVE the crunch tacos, but, hope to one day try the soft corn. If it’s not tacos, it’s a burrito bowl, a.k.a. salad…oh and it’s ALWAYS chicken for some reason.
