Happy Weekend all! We are super busy this weekend working on a surprise for one of our friends that I will be able to tell you about tomorrow (once the surprise happens!) It’s pretty cool!
Yesterday started off with my weigh in and I am excited to report TWO tHINGS:
* I ate ALL my WPA (unlike last week where I saved 31 of them)
* I LOST 1 LB!!!
I like that ~ EAT MORE, LOSE MORE! I am going to focus on eating them all again this week and see if it helps me continue to lose. 3 lbs to go to get to my Las Vegas Goal….I have a little less than 2 weeks to get there so its time to step it up!
Breakfast was a crispy eggwich (5 points+)
Plus a huge bowl of watermelon….I could eat my body weight in watermelon I think.
I took a break for lunch today when TJ of TJ’s Test Kitchen mentioned making up HUGE salads at Whole Foods. This totally worked for me because I wanted to see if I could find one more ingredient to make up my Harvest Grain Salad Mix for you all.
The BEST marinated mushrooms I’ve ever had.
I used this mango salsa with balsamic vinegar as my dressing.
An OK Thai salad….it was a tad bit too minty for me.
BEETS! I wish I got more – they were so sweet, crunchy and flavorful.
1 homemade crouton (1 points+)
All on top of mix greens, romaine, a little corn, peas, garbanzos and 1 Tbsp raw sunflower seeds that I should’ve left off because I couldn’t taste them. (3 points+)
We shared a soft, doughy pretzel roll that tasted just like a soft pretzel (2 points+)
I really wanted to make up a big bowl of their hot foods versus a salad but I refrained and got a little “sampler”.
* Green Beans (1 points+) Slightly spicy with a teriyaki, sesame, ginger taste
* 1/3 cup Curry Chicken which I ate all of ~ so good! (3 points+)
* 2 bites of Pad Thai (eh, it’ was ok) (1 points+)
* Lime Cilantro Rice that I took one bite and decided I didn’t like the huge coriander seeds so I didn’t eat it.
On our way back home, we had to make one more stop at Fresh & Easy ~ a new store that Tracey has been telling me about.
I can admit it ~ grocery stores make me HAPPY! This place is sort of like a cross between Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and a grocery store. I LOVE their logic all over the signs and foods in the store.
They had me at ~ “INGREDIENTS YOU CAN PRONOUCE”!
They have a ton of Fresh Meals that you can grab and go. Some are points+ friendly and others not so much.
Remember those Weight Watchers Fresh Meals I tried ~ I am pretty sure this is the company that made them!
On my way home, I had to stop for a coffee fix. My NEW LOWER POINTS+ LOVE!
Venti Iced Americano with 2 pumps of your favorite things for 1 points+ (1 pump coconut & 1 pump mocha or 2 pumps coconut!) and a splash of half/half for 1 points+
I LOVE that you save 2 points+ but I do miss the benefit of checking off my dairy. It was completely refreshing.
The Husband decided it’s been wayyyyy too long since we visited our friends at Vasquez Deli ~ the BEST tacos in the world!
Since Vasquez doesn’t have their nutritional information online, I looked up the points in my Complete Food Companion. You could do the same online or Weight Watchers Mobile.
I got 2 Spicy, Crunchy Chicken tacos for 10 points+.
This really is the BEST, Spicy Shredded Chicken ever!….it’s so juicy, spicy and melts in your mouth!
I am off to work my bootie off helping our friends out. I am super proud of me for planning for success by packing a cooler for The Husband and I loaded with healthy snacks, sandwiches & popchips!
Happy Saturday all! See you all late tonight or tomorrow!
