Happy Monday all! Today I was back on the Simply Filling Track with some delicious clean eats. As I pondered my day on my drive home, I realized that I could actually measure my day by looking at how all the “MINI Successes” stacked up.
I made sure I got up early and hopped on the treadmill for a 30 minute jog/walk. Then, I jogged further than I have to date and used 5 min jog, 3 min walk intervals sprinting to the finish ~ Success!
Even though I was rushing out the door, I still decided it was worth it to stop for a Latte and banana at Starbucks ~ you know, for breakfast. Taking time for breakfast = Success! (SF) – 3 points+
I was starving by the time I arrived at work but instead of going to the café where I could’ve had them make anything for me, I grabbed a snack ~ watermelon & a light string cheese (SF) – 1 points+.
I could’ve gotten anything from a Nutella Peanut Butter Banana Crepe to pasta to some pretty delicious sounding sandwiches.
BUT, what I wanted more was to choose something healthy that was close to Simply Filling.
I actually went to a Crepe Place and didn’t order a Crepe even when my friend got one togo for dessert and offered to get me one too ~ Success!
Despite being 107 degrees today, I went with their 1/2 Salad and Soup Combo.
Can you believe this is only half a Caprese Salad?! I am pretty sure I fell in love with this place when I saw this salad.
Mixed greens tossed with balsamic vinegar and olive oil topped with fresh mozzarella, tomatoes
and fresh basil.
(SF + 3 WPA for the cheese) ~ oil & balsamic are both 100% Simply Filling! 5 points+
Some of the best Split Pea Soup I’ve ever had and 100% Simply Filling. 4 points+. For the record, I gave that Rosemary Foccacia Bread away with the butter ~ I did it before I could think about it ~ SUCCESS!
Mid afternoon I stared down the candy bowl that someone restocked by my desk, then, snacked on a Pluot and Light String Cheese before I headed over to Trader Joe’s to stock up on a few things for the week. (SF) – 1 points+ SUCCESS!
The Husband called on my way home to say I haven’t had Asian food in awhile so to pick one ~ Panda Express or the Thai Place near us…..for any of you who know me, I pretty much NEVER say no to all types of Asian food.
We went out last night so I knew I should be good tonight. I was tired and the thought of not having to cook was incredibly tempting…..plus, all those voices in my head telling me to just go out.
As much as I was tempted to say yes, let’s go out ~ I didn’t. I came home and whipped up BBQ Turkey Burgers with all the fixin’s with corn ~ SUCCESS! (SF) – 10 points+
STATS (12 am – 930pm)
- 2,709 calories burned
- 9,416 steps taken
- 3 WPA used, 13 WPA remaining (24 daily points+)
What is one MINI Success you had today?
It’s pretty amazing if you sit back and think about all the successes you have each day…Not every success shows on the scale, but, every single MINI success counts!
