Happy Sunday all! A HUGE CONGRATULATIONS to each and everyone of you who stuck it out through the entire 100% Tracking Challenge this past week. I am super proud of you and I am sure that the scale is showing the results of your tracking efforts this week. If not, keep at it and it will show ~ consistency is key!
I really think all that tracking helped me navigate the menus this week since we ended up dining out more than usual. I LOST another .6 LBS with only 5 lbs left to reach my Valentine’s Day goal.
Today, I FINALLY used Biscoff Spread for something other than eating it straight off the spoon….
1 Tbsp Biscoff on top of a Sara Lee Mini Blueberry Bagel (4 points+)
7 Raw Almonds for 1 points+!
Served up with 2 cuties…I totally picked the BIGGEST ones in the basket
5 points+ and this kept me full for 5 hours….funny how that works sometimes…..
I’ve made them as bread, muffins and now mini muffins ~ they freeze well too!
After my meeting, I stocked up for the week and picked up some “dogs” for lunch. The Husband and his friends were installing a new hot water heater & new pipes in our house today. They requested Hot Dogs, but, I just couldn’t do it LOL.
Instead, I picked up these Artisan Fresh Mozzarella & Roasted Garlic Chicken Sausages at Sam’s Club. It’s close, right???
REAL ingredients that you can recognize!
3 points+ each!
Grilled to perfection in less than 8 minutes.
Served with a HUGE Bunch of Chips ~ Kale Chips! (1 points+) ~ They totally taste like potato chips, but, better….So much so that his friends ate the other half of my “chips”
4 points+ for lunch ~ deal!
Dessert ~ Coconut Pound Cake Mini Muffin (2 points+)
My afternoon snack is going to sound strange and it totally went unphotographed. I bought a rotisserie chicken at Sam’s and at a drumstick as I pulled the chicken off the bone (3 points+).
I started with a wedge of this Chicken & Bacon Quesadilla (3 points+) plus ONE slice of bread (2 points+). I made sure to put it on the other side of the table so I couldn’t go back for more….
I usually get the Victoria Filet with a Plain Baked Potato & Steamed Veggies, but, today, I ventured out.
Aussie Cobb Salad ~ Wood-fire grilled chicken to top off fresh mixed greens, chopped hardboiled eggs, tomatoes, bacon, shredded Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese and freshly made croutons.
I ate it all, except for the chicken ~ for some reason, it didn’t sound good (10 points+). I had my dressing on the side so I could “fork dip” ~ Fat Free Tangy Tomato on the side (3 points+)
