Happy Sunday all! I am so excited to tell you all that I lost another 1.2 lbs this week even though I had a less than perfect Simply Filling week. I really did try to focus on “smart & healthy” choices when I was presented with them even if they were not 100% Simply Filling. I think that and making sure I MOVED MORE made all the difference at the scale this week.
It’s total motivation going into this week to save up my WPA so I can enjoy some “treats” on our camping trip. I have been dreaming of S’Mores ever since we first started talking about camping!
During my meeting, I snacked on the fruit my leader brought us….
Along with a banana and coffee. I LOVE her for always having coffee there. I think I should probably donate to her coffee club you know to support
my habit the cause
Breakfast Part 2 involved a Venti Iced Non-Fat Decaf Latte (SF) – 3 points+
After running around to pick up a few things for this week’s menu and doing a little yard work, we stopped at The Joy of Eating.
As you all know I have a serious obsession with their BLTA’s ~ I mean, honestly, they are probably the best sandwich I have ever had in my life. I get it like 99% of the time we go there.
I stayed focused on those S’Mores I want this weekend and decided to venture out to pick something that is Simply Filling.
Teriyaki Chicken Salad with Homemade Sesame Miso Dressing on the side! It was so delicious I honestly did not miss having a BLTA and I even turned down a bite of The Husband’s sandwich. Crazy, but, so cool (SF + 2 WPA for the dressing) – 8 points+
This is the watermelon I wait all year for ~ there is a little old man who sells it every year with his daughter at our local markets ~ It’s so sweet, juicy & 100% Simply Filling!
The Husband actually gets credit for tonight’s dinner idea ~ for some random reason he told me on Saturday, it’s been FOREVER since we have had Kabob’s.
So, tonight, I changed that with these amazing BBQ Turkey & Veggie Kabob’s!
We used pretty much every single veggie we bought at the Farmer’s Market except the butternut squash & mushrooms. We tossed the veggies in Emeril’s Original Essence & Olive Oil.
They Turkey Breast was marinated in BBQ Sauce & Jack Daniel’s Steak Sauce with a sprinkle Emeril’s Chicken Rub.
Served up with super sweet corn on the side. I actually started cutting all the corn we buy in half and cooking them separately so it feels like I have more if I want to go back. It also helps me to realize, I actually only “need” half to feel satisfied.
My entire meal is all Simply Filling since the amount of BBQ Sauce = 0 points+. The total points+ for my plate is a total deal ~ 6 points+
I think I might have a snack while watching the show – probably more watermelon & some cheese or yogurt.
