Happy Monday all! Thanks for all the congrats on my loss this week. If you all try one NEW recipe this summer, make that Summer Vegetable Pasta ~ it’s AMAZING!
This morning I snacked on a banana before hopping on the treadmill. My legs were pretty tired today from yesterday’s run, but, I managed to get in a 33 minute jog/walk pushing myself to go faster every 30 seconds.
I was pretty hungry after I worked out so I dug right into breakfast.
Sometimes there is nothing as good as melted peanut butter on top of a toasty English Muffin. (7 points+)
Plus MELON & PINEAPPLE!!! Is it odd that I think the BEST thing about going to the store this week was restocking this?!
I know….I am so easy to please…..give me a watermelon & I’ll be your BFF, for like ever!
I have actually been kind of excited to try this Morning Star Sesame Chik’n, but, have been waiting for a day when I had 0 time to make lunch.
I was totally willing to overlook the LONG ingredient list because I recognize everything and because I LOVE Morning Star Veggie Sausages & Chik Patties!
8 points+ for the entire box.
I LOVE how FULL the container was….visually it makes you not feel like it’s a frozen meal.
If you like sweet sauces, then, you might like this…I felt like it needed salt to balance the sweetness.
I was bummed the chicken wasn’t as crispy as those patties. It wasn’t bad, but, I probably won’t get it again.
Served up with a Trader Joe’s Light String Cheese & Nectarine. I actually packed a side salad too but didn’t eat it because I was satisfied with this. (1 points+)
Dessert! WW FROSTED Cinnamon Pop Chips (2 points+)
When I got home from work I really wanted to snack, sit on the couch and watch Food Network.
But, I decided to MOVE MORE!
I headed out and mowed our front/back yard, our neighbors yard and then, went and mowed The Husband’s Moms yard for good measure.
Then, something REALLY, REALLY SAD HAPPENED!
I spent a half hour cleaning & scrubbing our BBQ & grates only to find out ~ No MORE! The pipes that feed the gas are all burned out on 1 of the burners .
On the BRIGHTER SIDE ~ I GET A NEW GRILL!!!!
The Husband and I polished off the rest of our Summer Pasta Salad for dinner. I was STARVING so I had 2 heaping cups for 8 points+. I earned it!
I think it tastes even better the next day!
Currently we are snacking on cherries while watching The Bachelorette.
