Happy Friday Eve all! I think I learned from yesterday’s post, if you are from the South, then, you call it Putt Putt Golf, but, if you are from anywhere else, it’s Mini Golf. Maybe I am Southern at heart….after all, I DID grow up on a farm, in the country and wanted to be a cow-girl when I grew up
I pretty much made the decision last night that today was going to be a complete rest day…no planned workout, just my usual trek to work on the train. My body is just tired so I listened….now if only it would sleep IN instead of getting me up at 4:22 am.
Today’s food definitely made up for yesterday’s challenges.
Sometimes a girl just needs to REAL DEAL ~ a Blueberry Bagel with Light Whipped Cream Cheese from Manhattan Bagel with a BIG Iced Hazelnut Coffee (9 points+).
Doughy, chewy, warm, slightly sweet, slightly toasted REAL, not LITE bread!
I am pretty sure I said “This is SO GOOD!” in my head about 1,000 times.
Work flew by this morning, but, sure enough, about 3 hours later, I couldn’t wait to dig into lunch.
Remember Tracey’s 3 points+ Turkey Meatloaf Muffins? I had TWO left in the freezer.
Top with ketchup just because I know she thinks that’s weird. These are honestly delicious by alone, but, I wanted The Red Sauce!!!
Greens and things topped with Trader Joe’s Spicy Peanut Vinaigrette (4 points+)
I was full after lunch, but, my mouth wanted something sweet. I didn’t even realize this when I propped up my Annie’s Pink Lemonade Fruit Snacks, but, even the Dolphins want in on the action. (2 points+)
Train snacks ~ cherries and light string cheese (1 points+) ~ Best cherries to date!
All day long I had been planning how I’d convince The Husband we NEEDED to go to the next town over to pick up our new BBQ.
We actually had bought this AWESOME BBQ on Tuesday, but, after waiting for the store to find it for a half hour, they came back and said it was out of stock/on order.
It even has a searing burner and a LIGHT inside for bbqing in the dark ~ I usually take a flash light out with me lol.
I reluctantly got a refund and resolved to wait a week. Not really…..
I looked up all the Sam’s Clubs around us in a 100 mile radius and found one that had it in stock……One that just happened to be next to the BEST SUSHI PLACE of all time ~ Yokoso Sushi.
I pretty much had to call in all my favors since The Husband does not eat sushi and wasn’t too hip on driving 40 miles each way.
But, can, I just say, it was worth every mile to get the BBQ and to have this!
Even on a summer day ~ Miso Soup seems to always hit the spot (2 points+)
Japanese Miso Salad with the BEST Miso Dressing that I NEED to re-create (3 points+)
This is the roll makes driving over an hour on a 100 degree day to get a BBQ worth it ~ I promise!
…..I could eat this a couple of times a week and NEVER get tired of it. It might be a good thing this place isn’t closer.
TUNA STEAK ~ Spicy Crab Meat Topped with Ahi, Avocado, Green Onions, Tobiko SRIRACHA and special sauce made extra spicy for me = LOVE!!
I estimated this based off a Spicy Tuna Roll at 1 points+ a piece. (8 points+)
NEW AT FRIENDS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
* You still have one more day to enter to win Annie’s New 4 points+ Organic Snack Mix
Are you a fan of LITE Breads or the Real Deal Breads?
I’ll be honest, I really do want to LOVE the LITE breads ~ I mean, who doesn’t want to save on points+/calories. But, when, it comes down to it, I’ve found that the LITE breads never really quite satisfy my craving and I feel like I am eating air.
I keep trying to like them though…..
Just one more day!
