Happy Monday everyone! Thanks for all your kinds words regarding my weigh in on my last post. I know this week is still going to be challenging since we are on Winter Break (translation ~ doing fun things instead of work all week!) But, I am FOCUSED on starting the New Year off with a loss next Sunday.
The Husband declared today a “SNOW DAY” as soon as he got up. I think that is one thing I LOVE most about California and where we live ~ we are just a couple of hours from the beach and a couple of hours from the snow. We can visit the “snow” and not have to dig our cars our everyday . Sorry my East Coast Friends but, I don’t miss living in the snow at all!
After quickly getting ready, I packed up snacks and we were on the road. Breakfast was a naner. (0 points+)
Whenever we take a road trip, Starbuck’s is a must. I got my usual Dirty Latte (4 points+)
A Dirty Latte is a regular latte (hot or iced) with only 1 pump of Mocha. Each pump of Mocha is 1 points+ and I don’t like how sweet they make their usual mochas.
I LOVE them ~ it tastes just like chocolate milk and it’s fun to go into Starbuck’s with a “HUSKY” Voice and order….looking around, a DIRTY LATTE. (Oh, ok, they all know me there and know my order, but, it sounded fun to write that!)
I had visions of busting out my new camera and testing out all the “modes” on our drive. But, when, it came down to it, I didn’t want to FREEZE in the snow since we were going to be gone all day.
Here are just a few that I snapped from the car as we drove to Reno. Can you believe California has only had like 2 or 3 snow storms so far this year and they have this much snow?
I have so much to learn about my camera, but, it was fun to start using it
Road trip snacks ~ I let The Husband pick the string cheese this time (3 points+ for pepperjack versus 1-2 for Mozzarella) and a pear.
I am pretty sure we will be taking another trip up to go TUBING in the near future, but, all the resorts were PACKED today.
I started with some delicious White Bean Soup (3 points+)
Then, shared the usual Thai Chicken Salad with The Husband.
This salad is phenomenal ~ Mixed greens, Napa cabbage, red peppers, cucumbers, chow mein noodles, sliced almonds, sesame seeds, and a spicy soy dressing. (7 points+ for 1/2)
We played in the snow a little, shopped, ate, shopped some more then drove home with everyone else for like 4 hours! We decided half way through to stop for dinner when The Husband saw his favorite place, Texas Roadhouse!
I’ll be the first to admit I can’t resist their rolls, but, I am proud I had ONLY 1. I googled the Texas Roadhouse Nutritional Information, but, had no luck on their site.
I based my estimated below off the “verified” stats on Livestrong.com.
6 Points+ for ONE roll…crazy, but, they are AMAZING!
Steamed without butter veggies (0 points+)
Then, for my entrée, I picked the Grilled Shrimp Skewers with NO BUTTER and NO RICE and a side of green beans.
Well, I am pretty sure they used butter on the shrimp – look how shiny it is. I had one skewer of shrimp and gave The Husband my other. (5 points+ estimate based on WW online).
I didn’t eat the rice because I am pretty sure it was LOADED with oil and points+! I did eat all my Green Beans (1 points+)
