Happy Wednesday all! I knew better than to do it, but……I was trying ~ really trying to be good…..
Last night I was HUNGRY at like 8 PM, but, I figured it would go away. I drank water and more water.
When I decided to go to bed at 10 PM, I was STILL really hungry. I thought about a string cheese or maybe some fruit, but, decided I wanted sleep more than food.
I think last night’s hunger made today one STARVING DAY…as in NOTHING at all satisfied me. As in, by the time I got to work, I was ready to chew my arm off……Note to self…if you are genuinely hungry at night, have a snack already!
It is days like today that I know better than to drink my calories, but, I had already planned on making my very own BISCOFF LATTE!!! And, honestly, how to you say NO to that.
Insert 1 Tbsp of Biscoff Spread into an extra hot small latte, let it melt a little and swirl
~ 5 points+ and worth every cinnamony brown sugar sip.
This totally takes having your cookies & milk to a whole new level!
I couldn’t wait at all today to dig into breakfast. I had originally planned on using my bread to make an Egg Sandwich at lunch, but, knew my breakfast needed more.
2 slices Trader Joe’s FF Multi-Grain bread topped with 1 Tbsp Whipped Butter (5 points+).
Protein power ~ Morning Star Veggie Sausage (2 points+)
Plus a TON of watermelon/pineapple. The part that was crazy….I was STILL hungry.
I managed to wait about 2 hours then busted into a Pre-Yoga Snack. Yes, I could’ve made a better choice that was less points+ but I went with what I wanted.
Salty, crunchy, cheesy plus more cheese!
Annie’s Organic Snack Mix in a 1 oz pack with 1 Lite String Cheese (5 points+).
We had a sub instructor today at Yoga and she was AWESOME! It always amazes me how Gentle/Hatha/Restorative Yoga seems to ring out all the stress you have going on.
On my way back, I decided to grab Tacubaya because I felt like I needed something with staying power.
I spent WAY TOO MUCH time in line because I changed my order in my head about 5 times.
I ended up getting TWO of their Crunchy Chicken Tacos. (10 points+)
“Taco de Pollo– crispy taco filled with shredded organic chicken, cheese, cucumber-tomato salsa and cilantro.”
Plus the salad I am IN LOVE with! This is only a HALF salad ~ crazy huge (3 points+)
“Ensalada de Primavera– mixed greens, shredded cabbage, carrots, red onion and avocado tossed in a lemon vinaigrette, sprinkled with toasted pumpkin seeds.”
The BEST PART ~ I was finally full! The worst part….um, that whole points+ thing. I know I still have WPA left, but, I hate being at the end of my points+ for the day BEFORE dinner.
So, what’s a girl to do? I turn to my BESTEST FRIEND all year long ~ HUGE Salads
You see ~ I can pile a ton of 0 points+ veggies in a big bowl and layer on just a few things that I LOVE for very little points+
* Organic Mixed Greens & Organic Romaine
* Organic snap peas, cucumbers, orange sweet peppers, cherry tomatoes & green onions
* 1/2 a grilled corn cobb from last night (1 points+)
* 1 Tbsp Dry Roasted Sunflower Seeds (1 points+)
* 1 Tbsp Newman’s Lite Lime Vinaigrette + 1 Tbsp White Balsamic (1 points+)
As much as The Husband LOVES steak, he also LOVES Big Build Your Own Salads…..
Plus what he couldn’t fit on his salad ~ His Anti-Pasta Bowl LOL.
Since I am FINALLY content, I am sure I will not need anything else. If I do, there is watermelon calling my name
You still have time to ENTER TO WIN YOUR VERY OWN PASTA MAKING KIT!
When you are running low on points+/calories or have nothing left for the day, what do you do? Do you make a low points+ meal or skip it? I’d love to know your ideas
