Happy Saturday all! I couldn’t resist starting off today’s post with a random fact of the day I heard on the radio as we were driving. As you all know, Jessica Simpson is doing Weight Watcher’s to take off her baby weight. She recently bought everyone in her entire meeting pedometers just so they could all focus on getting 10,000 steps a day (5 miles!). When she handed it out to all of them, she told them all to “step, step, step it up!” I think that is so cool and I totally have a feeling that saying is going to stick in my head every time I am given the chance to walk somewhere or take the easy route.
I actually had no idea that 10,000 steps translated to 5 miles either. Definitely somehting to strive for each day just so you can tell everyone you walked 5 miles lol. Random….but, pretty cool in my book.
This morning we were up bright and early to head out for a long drive to Napa/Lake Berryessa.
We fueled up for our drive by stopping at Starbuck’s. When we left I thought my Venti Iced Latte with caramel drizzle would be enough for breakfast since I wasn’t starving. (SF) – 3 points+
But, as we were standing in line I realized I was starving so I picked up a Protein Bistro Box to share.
I had the egg (SF) – 2 points+
Plus the fruit which was incredibly refreshing since it was so hot out already (SF).
Then, gave The Husband the cheese, bread and peanut butter. If you were to eat the entire box yourself, it’s 10 points+, but, you could totally divide it up to have for breakfast and snack.
I had planned on stopping to take pictures as we drove up to Lake Berryessa, but, only ended up snapping a couple as we drove.
On our way back we stopped by the Farmer’s Market to pick up some corn and squash before heading over to Target & Sam’s Club to stock up on some of the camping foods we will be taking with us next weekend. I will be sharing our camping menu tomorrow.
We stopped for lunch at Mary’s Pizza Shack. I had 2 pieces of sour dough to start (4 points+)
Plus a large Mary’s Salad with Ranch on the side….See the favorite 3 bean salad I meant to make last week. This salad was so huge, I couldn’t finish it even though my mouth actually wanted to.
SF + 4 WPA for the cheese and about 1 Tbsp Ranch. (7 points+)
After lunch, we stopped at a few more stores before deciding it was just too hot to be outside. While pondering what to make for dinner (something light that takes little to no effort since we both didn’t’ want to cook), I snack on some watermelon.
We decided on Simply Filling Veggie Flat Out Pizzas! I thought about making salads to go with it, then, realized, we had “salads” on our pizza
This Flat Out Amazing Recipe is probably the simplest pizza you will ever make and it really does taste like a delicious, crunchy, thin crust pizza. (100% Simply Filling) – 6 points+ for the entire thing!
- Multi-Grain Flax Flat Out Wrap (in my opinion, the only flavor that doesn’t taste “diety”)
- Pizza Sauce
- Bell Pepper
- Red onion
- Sweet Pickled Cherry peppers chopped
- 1 oz part skim mozzarella
- Then, once it comes out of the oven, brighten the flavors with fresh tomatoes and basil
We did A LOT of
shopping walking today running errands, buying gifts and getting ready to go camping. I am so freakin’ excited to go…..I am totally counting the days down!
- 2,985 calories burned
