Happy Weekend all! Do you ever think to yourself throughout the day that you are so funny by what you are doing and yet, you can’t change it? This was totally me yesterday. I was struggling getting up and hit snooze probably one too many times. But, I knew I wasn’t going to give up my workout. Logic would say just change your workout and do something that takes less time.
Why would I be logical?! I was so determined to do my 30 minute jog/walk on the treadmill. I did it and figured, ok, maybe I’ll save time by doing a grab & go breakfast and buying lunch. Nope, I took time to make both anyway……The rest of my morning went this way until I ran out of time and ended up leaving the house with my hair wet. The whole time I kept talking to myself (yup, just to me since The Husband already left) saying…I am so funny why don’t I just do this or that……
For those wondering, it you let your oats cool a little, it makes them easier to scoop as you drive LOL.
100% SF or 4 points+
- 1/2 cup Old Fashioned Oats with 1 cup water
- Sprinkle of Cinnamon & 1 tsp unsweetened coconut
- Banana and blueberries
I knew I wouldn’t get a chance to eat lunch until late so about 4 hours later, I snacked on a lite string cheese with a Pluot (SF) 1 points+.
Now here is another funny thought…..After taking 10 minutes or so to make up my Veggie Burger Salad lunch like I had yesterday, I ended up trading it in when The Husband asked me if he could stop by for lunch I am such a clown!
We ended up at La Bou where I picked 2. Spicy Thai Chicken Soup (SF or 4 points+)
Half a House Salad that is made with butter lettuce,avocado, tomato, cucumber, Jarlsberg swiss cheese and sprouts. Topped with Creamy Dill Dressing ~ like ranch, but, better SF + 4 WPA
It took a lot of want power, but, I gave the bread that comes with this salad to The Husband before I could even think about taking a bite – Success!
I am pretty much hooked on fat free lattes since they are 100% Simply Filling….it totally makes it easier to justify (3 points+)
As I was driving home, The Husband suggested we head out to Monsoon & have someone else “grill” for us.
I actually dreamt about this dinner all the way home……
I was so excited……
I went to a Burger place and made a healthy Simply Filling dinner!!!
Before ordering my burger I asked what type of ground turkey they used and they showed me a Jennie-O Turkey Breast Burger which falls under Simply Filling. My fall back was going to be a garden burger if it wasn’t a lean turkey burger.
I tossed the bun and used the toppings bar to make a burger salad! SF+6 WPA or 10 points+
