Happy Sunday all! This weekend has been such a fun weekend, I am so sad to see it come to an end. It all started off yesterday when I had the opportunity to attend the Weight Watchers Live Life Active Event to chat about my story and our new Light Grape Light Wines.
I know the question you all have been asking is how can I get my hands on these wines that are ONLY 1 points+ per 5 ounce?! We are working to get in in the market place and here are 3 things you can do:
1. Go to your favorite place to buy wine and request it! It is now with our distributors and they are just waiting for consumers to ask for it at their local stores. Next week, our website, The Light Grape will have a store locator so you can find which stores near you carry it.
2. Call 800-605-9771 to place an order ~ all month long shipping is $5 regardless of how much you order and they are offering a special discount on mixed and full cases.
3. Visit the Geyser Peak Winery and buy it in the tasting room.
The fun Weight Watchers crew I had the chance to work with on Saturday.
The member stories were my favorite part along with the smoothie bar, free recipe book and of course, checking out all the other vendors ~ so much fun!
Two other things that made Saturday amazing ~ We saw the movie Now You See Me ~ it’s so good that I want to watch it again and my niece had her baby girl.
All of that was just Saturday ~ Sunday, we were up bright and early to head over to do a fly by weigh in before heading to the Alameda Antique Fair. I was up 1.4 lbs, but, you what, I totally earned these as I didn’t track these last 4 days.
So, today, I am back at it with a fresh week determined to make it a better one.
My road trip drink ~ a Venti Iced Dirty Coffee (coffee with 2 pumps mocha) – 1 points+
Breakfast involved more Kodiak Cakes! I am so completely addicted to these tasty flapjacks at the moment. ~ Fun fact ~ I will be giving some away to you all this week.
2 Flapjacks with 1 Tbsp. melted whipped butter & 1 Tbsp. pure maple syrup (7 points+)
2 slices of Trader Joe’s Peppered Turkey Bacon drizzled with a little syrupy goodness 2 points+
Served up with a side of Farmer’s Market Fruit ~ a peach (without the funky fuzz), strawberries and blueberries.
We spent about 4 hours walking all around the fair. I couldn’t wait to log onto my phone to see how many steps Flex said we went….It totally made my day to see that Flex thinks I am an Overachiever today with all that walking
The Husband bribed me into going with him to the fair with promises of sushi at Yokoso Sushi!
I started with my usual sesame salad, miso soup and green tea. 5 points+.
Then moved onto My favorite roll they make ~ The Tuna Steak made spicy (the top it with Sriracha just for me) ~ I then, make it even hotter by taking my entire wasabi blob and mixing it with soy sauce for dipping. I never eat the ginger. 8 points+
spicy crabmeat topped w/ seared tuna and spicy sauces
After taking a 2+ hour nap, we headed out for froyo! Today’s mix was probably one of the best I’ve made in a long time.
Chocolate Caramel Turtle Froyo, Vanilla Froyo, a sprinkle of roasted almonds, yogurt chips, Captain Crunch!, sprinkles (for color) and a little caramel. 6 points+
Dinner was totally inspired by Diners, Drive-Inns and Dives. The Husband ended up watching a BBQ special while I was sleeping and when I woke up declared he wanted BBQ….um, ok!
I wasn’t really hungry so I had half this boneless pork rib ~ 2 oz. to be precise topped with his secret sauce and secret rub. 2 points+
1/3 cup mac n cheese spirals 3 points+
Salad with fat free balsamic drizzled on top.
All together with The Husband’s added touch ~ he said I had open space so he added a fork filled with a little of his BBQ smoked turkey sausage (funny guy!)
All that walking earned me two badges today with Flex!
I totally dig that there were a bunch of Hooray balloons when I logged Flex online tonight. Motivation!
I am still working through my emails, comments, etc. catching up with you all ~ I will get there soon. Thank you for being so patient.
