Happy Friday Eve all! Thanks for all the compliments on the Bacon Inside Out Cheese Burger Sliders ~ they really are as FANTASTIC if not more than they look. Ohhhh and thanks for letting me know I am not the only one who cannot follow directions when making a recipe ~ I actually LOVE that you all venture out and put your own spin on recipes too.
Honestly The weekend just cannot come fast enough this week. Then again, it could be because next week is a short 2-day week before we are off to VEGAS!!!!
I was a little hungrier than just my banana this morning, so I paired it with one these Brown Cow 0% Greek Yogurts that I picked up at Sam’s Club ~ an entire 12 pack was only $10.
They come in blueberry & strawberry and both flavors are 3 points+ each. I really like them ~ it’s a nice change from my usual plain.
I ROCKED my workout today and I can honestly say that because it was tough, I pushed through it and I NEVER stopped when I wanted to just walk. I did the C25K, week 4.1.
I knew EXACTLY what I wanted for my mid morning snack so I went for it.
2 slices Trader Joe’s FF Multi-Grain Bread topped with 1 Tbsp Whipped Butter (5 points+)
Plus a HUGE bowl of melon! I cannot get enough watermelon this time of year.
Today I earned TWO BRAVO stickers and seriously if I had them, I would be putting them on my tracker LOL. We had a “Sports Themed” day at work that included a lunch of hot dogs and salads from Top Dog.
I could’ve totally participated, counted the points+ and moved on. But, when I really thought of how many points+ it would cost me (almost all of them I get in a day) and the fact that I would still be hungry, I decided to
BYOD ~ Bring Your Own Dog!
I cooked up a Trader Joe’s Veggie Corn Dog (4 points+)
Plus Veggies with 2 Tbsp’s Bolthouse Ranch (2 points+)
I totally participated with everyone at lunch but it only cost me 6 points+ and it was just as delicious to me!
I rewarded myself with 2 squares of Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Sea Salted Caramel that I showed you all yesterday (3 points+)
Then, the afternoon brought challenge #2 ~ We had an It’s It Party to celebrate the birthdays for the month.
I wanted one….I really did even after I checked that they were 9 points+
My co-worker even offered to half it with me….
But, when it came down to it, I decided I’d rather eat more food tonight than to go to bed hungry and I didn’t want to go over my points+ today.
Instead, I stuck to my healthy 3 points+ snack and felt SO EMPOWERED!
I LOVE this corn…it’s salty, sweet, crunchy!
We have my Nieces Graduation tonight so I know dinner is going to involved 2 Inside Out Bacon Cheese Burger Sliders (10 points+) with Italian Veggies…
And the rest of our grilled veggies!
I am so PROUD OF ME TODAY for my choices and sticking to what mattered to me the most…I don’t feel deprived ~ I feel empowered!
NEW AT FRIENDS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Catch you all later….Just one more day!
