Happy Tuesday all! I am glad I am not the only one who thinks that Pineapple and Coconut were made for each other. I am really looking forward to hearing what you all think of those tasty little muffins I posted yesterday.
Have you all ever noticed no matter how bad your day or your week has been, if you step back each day to reflect on the day there is always a Silver Lining in every day?
On my most challenging days, I tend to try to find the positive to focus on because it really does make it that much easier to deal with anything that comes your way. This morning, one of my co-workers who I do not really know too well actually stopped me to tell me that I have really have that whole “weight loss thing down and it’s showing”. It totally made my day and I pretty much walked around smiling all day long.
Before heading this morning, I made The Husband and I eggwiches (SF) – 6 points+.
I brought my lunch today, however, ended up trading it in when one of my co-workers asked if I wanted to get out to go to Jack’s Urban Eats. I LOVE Jack’s and would pretty much drop anything I’ve made just to build a salad.
In the Simply Filling Mix (8 points+):
- Mixed Greens
- Kidney/Garbanzo Beans
- Cherry Tomatoes
- Pickled Red Onions
- Grilled Chicken
- Balsamic Vinegar and a little Olive Oil on the side
I definitely didn’t plan it right since we didn’t have time for Starbuck’s….so, instead, I had a Dark Chocolate Sea Salted Caramel Dove ~ Silver Lining…..(SF+1 WPA) – 1 points+
Afternoon snackage ~ watermelon and a light string cheese (SF + 1 WPA) – 1 points+
Tonight was The Husband’s night to cook dinner and he gave me two options. To go out on a eating and shopping date with him or to have him cook.
It was a “tought” decision, but, my Chiptole Salad Bowl and the mention of Cost Plus won!
You can determine the points+ of anything you put in your bowl by visiting Chipotlefan.com. My entire bowl is 8 points+. I may or may not have stole a couple of The Husband’s chips with guacamole.
I count this bowl as Simply Filling because everything in it ~ is!
- fajita veggies
- 2 types of salsa ~ corn & pico de gallo
- I skipped the cheese, beans and rice because I didn’t “need” them
There is something so incredibly therapeutic about walking down every single isle of Cost Plus World Market checking out anything and everything.
I also couldn’t resist getting these adorable chopsticks with this little orange man for our nephew who collects chopsticks ~ they seriously make me smile every time I see them.
Then, all things were made right in the world when I turned down the Biscoff Isle…..I finally found CRUNCHY Biscoff! My favorite spread in the world now has crunchy cookies inside it….
