Happy Hump Day all! I can’t say that I did a lot of work today to make my eats happen, but, they definitely hit every craving I had (ok, well, maybe not those AMAZING Reese’s PB Eggs). I LOVE days when I look back and think, wow, I ate good today ~ today was totally like that 🙂
I have to start out though by thanking you all for complimenting my Gnocchi skills or lack there of and for sharing all your helpful tips ~ they will definitely be put to use if I venture out to try it again.
I absolutely couldn’t wait to have another Bagel Thin! I decided to use Jasmine’s idea and whip a Bagel EggWich.
1 Everything Bagel Thin
1 Laughing Cow Lite Wedge
Spinach (0 pts)
1/3 c Egg beaters with HOT Sauce, sea salt & pepper
2 slices of TJ’s Turkey Bacon
4 points of deliciousness whipped up in a matter of minutes (cooked between the toaster & microwave). I LOVED the combo and totally think this would be even better with some sauteed mushrooms and/or even making the eggbeaters Denver style.
When I went to grab my mid-morning snack I saw this intriguing Asian like snack mix in the break room. (This Wasabi Pea loving girl would’ve LOVED it ~ I tried one and it actually wasn’t so bad – shocker, huh?!)
It was interesting how each cracker had a flavor ~ spicy, bbq, one with salt/vinegar, sesame…I LOVED the addition of the nuts….I counted it as a 1 point taste, then, enjoyed my AWESOME pear and Low-Fat Colby Cheese (2 pts).
I wasn’t sure if the rain would let up so I could get in a quick run ~ it was POURING out all morning. Finally, I gave up wondering and decided to head out to lunch with my co-worker to the place I CRAVE for their veggies ~ Panda Express!!!
They whipped up my Mixed Veggies Fresh ~ Love that! (1 pt)
Fresh Fire Cracker Chicken ~ Super spicy today ~ I LOVE HEAT even if I am a spice wimp sometimes. For those wondering, here is the nutritional information for this based on an email someone sent to Panda Express. (4 pts!!)
String Bean Chicken (3 pts)
AWESOME ~ Check out my 5 a day all in one meal! I was so feeling the affects of having this much fiber in one meal, but, it was 100 million % worth it.
Pretty cool that Panda had Sobe Life Water that you could pick up for a drink ~ LOVE It!
Since Panda is next door to Over The Top, I HAD to get a Froyo ~ afterall ~ rainy days = 20% off – how can you resist?!
My flavors today ROCKED!!! Vanilla, HEATH TOFFEE (topped with Heath Toffee of course!) and Cookies and Cream…5 points!
My meeting today was completely inspirational. I LOVE my leader (I am sure you all know that by now). I was feeling a tad bit discouraged because I felt I earned a BIG loss this week for tracking 100% (every bite!) plus my awesome workouts. She offered up some great advice including having me bring in my tracker next week (scared, but, that’s good!) I know I NEED to be consistent to see the results I want and I am sure they will show up next week. Oh ~ the topic, getting rid of temptation in your house and stocking your kitchen with healthy alternatives.
She challenged us to get rid of 10 Trigger foods this week ~ BETTER IN THE TRASH THAN ON YOUR @$$!!! I may have to post that on the fridge 😀
The Husband requested Vasquez and I am all about not cooking after my flop yesterday. I had two spicy chicken tacos for 8 points.
