Happy Wednesday all! It was so fun to read how many of you go spinning on my last post. I definitely think I have been spending too much time on the treadmill because it felt great to mix things up. Yesterday I took the body sculpting class and today – holy wow! I am so sore from it in a good way. I really dig that the goal of Body Sculpt is to work as many muscle groups as you can with each exercise. Why just do shoulder presses when you can do squats at the same time?! The same was true for bicep curls and lunging….each exercise goes for time versus reps.
So today…..I rested! I actually woke myself up last night when I turned and moved my arms LOL.
Breakfast ~ I am so hooked on Healthy Egg Rolls that my day is not complete without having one. I’ve also noticed the amounts of Sriracha I use each day keep adding up and up.

I have been making The Husband protein shakes each morning to go with his egg roll. I decided to participate today by making a Green Banana Shake sans the protein powder!
1/2 cup Trader Joe’s Coconut Milk with a banana, 2 cups spinach and 1 cup ice. (SF) – 2 points+
Side note: I find it totally ironic that today is the first day of Spring and it is the first day of rain we have had all month.
Lunch started off with my usual salad base.
Plus a perfectly hard boiled egg…..
1 cup of Vegan Pasta Salad and two mandarins (SF) – 6 points+
Crazy fact ~ The Husband eats these little mandarins skin and all ~ I peel mine!
I really wanted something salty, crunchy and spicy this afternoon. I am pretty sure it was because I was eyeing the Spicy Chili Lime Tortilla chips my co-worker brought in for us to share.
Instead ~ I grabbed a healthy snack that I was planning for lunch later this week.
1/2 cup Trader Joe’s Spicy Ranchero Egg White Salad (SF) – 1 points+
Plus 1/2 a serving of Trader Joe’s Salt & Pepper Rice Crisps (SF+ 2 WPA) – 2 points+
My March K-Cup Ambassador Promotion arrived in the mail today and it came straight from the Tiki Farm.
I absolutely love Hawaiian coffee and always make sure I bring back bags in my suitcase. I am so excited to learn that Tully’s decided to come out with their own Hawaiian blend.
Like a well-deserved vacation, this variety is being added as my favorite new K-Cup because some of the best coffee I have ever tasted has been on an island, surrounded by tropical breezes.
You know you can hear the ukuleles playing in the background each time you pop a cup in to brew.
This month’s promotion is pretty fantastic. You will not only save 15% off everything you order at www.GreenMountainCoffee.com , but, you will get FREE SHIPPING on all orders $30 or more. Just enter “STOREWIDE8128” when you check out. This code is good from now until April 21st.
For dinner, we headed over to Panera for a you pick 2. I was so looking forward to having some spicy vegetarian black bean soup and salad…..
My Two Things ~ NO black bean soup and I cannot believe I actually ordered my salad without bacon…..who does that?! Meatless March Success!
Spinach Power Salad without bacon but with all the fixin’s ~ spinach, grilled mushrooms, egg, “fried onions” and Smoky Sweet Vidalia onion dressing. 6 points+ (SF+5 WPA)
Did you all know you can pick a pickle instead of an apple, baguette or chips? I had no idea until I actually read the menu today. It’s a sad looking pickle but it was still good.
I picked 1/2 a tomato & mozzarella Panini for my other pick two. It was pretty tasty – crunchy, tangy, cheesy and I love the contrast of fresh plus sun dried tomatoes.
I am not so sure it was worth 10 points+ though. (SF + 10 WPA)

Tomorrow I head out to the winery for some meetings, to pick up some wine and may end up at The Wurst Restaurant for a homemade Veggie Sausage or Falafel Burger…..I can’t decide which sounds better.
