Happy Friday all! Although it has been a rainy day, I have to say I am so PUMPED for the weekend to begin. We kicked off our weekend with “date night” tonight and tomorrow we are heading to the Seed Bank to pick out everything for our garden and we might even plant “stuff” too!!! Sunday is the BIG RUN….I am just a little excited for it all to start, but, I need to sit back and enjoy the ride 😀
I have been working RICE for my hips ~ Rest, Ice, Elevation and Compression. A LOT of stretching with my FOAM ROLLER on my super thick Boulder Yoga Mat (which is awesome if you have hard wood floors), plus ice and Motrin. Fingers crossed that it works and I am “SUPER FLY” and FAST on Sunday 😀
I have been really craving baked goods all week and haven’t had time to bake. So, this morning, I finally gave in and picked up a Low-Fat Triple Berry Coffee Cake (7 pts) with a Grande FF Decaf Latte for breakfast (2.5 pts). It was a higher in point breakfast, but, worth every bite!
Mid morning I snacked on a bit of Kettle Cashew Butter and a banana (2 pts). I didn’t want them together so I just licked my spoon since I am classy like that 😉
I was really looking forward to using last night’s Mexican Pizza Leftovers to make a HUGE Lavish Burrito today.
I started off with 1/4 c ff salsa beans plus 1 1/2 oz taco ground turkey and SRIRACHA.
Then, I melted 1/2 oz of low fat CHEESE.
Plus TJ’s Corn Salsa, mini peppers, and AVOCADO!
Tomatoes, cilantro and fresh jalapeño slices. I actually learned that I LOVE fresh jalapeño slices, just don’t eat the seeds ~ HOT, HOT!!!
My last topping was some organic herbed greens.
NOM, NOM, NOM!!! This was so spicy, cheesy, good and not bad for 7 points.
I have to admit I was pretty excited to have some down time when I got home. For those of you who know me, I rarely sit still for long. But, today, I plopped down in front of the TV and indulged in the Food Network. I honestly think I could watch it for HOURS, other than it makes me really HUNGRY!
Mid afternoon snack ~ a few Salt & Pepper Pop Chips and a LF Colby Cheese (3 pts).
When The Husband got home, we headed out for date night. I have been craving a really good salad, so we hit up Fresh Choice! Let’s just say, I pretty much emptied their salad bar with everything I could on my salad. Estimated (3 pts since it’s mainly veggies and I had FF dressing on the side)
I LOVE that they are now serving up ORGANIC, LOCAL PRODUCE with their new FARM TO FORK INITIATIVE!!!
Chicken Fettuccine Noodle Soup (3 pts per cup)
1 slice of Veggie Pizza that was just ok ~ not sure it was worth the 3 points.
I HAD to have my standard corn bread & honey spread bite too…just a bite though 😀 (1 pt) – See how the pts can add up so quickly?! I broke into my WPA for today and it was totally worth it 🙂
Dessert was a 3 point cone with sprinkles. FUN FACT ~ did you all know that the plain regular cones are ZERO POINTS (only 15 calories!). I LOVE them because it’s built in portion control that doesn’t FEEL like it’s a small amount.
After dinner we went to see the Green House and we LOVED it! Totally intense, but, I have to say it leaves you wanting to see more. I honestly don’t think I’ve seen a Matt Damon movie I don’t like!
Have a great Saturday all ~ Night!!!
