Happy Weekend all! Do you ever have days where you accomplish everything you set out to do for like the entire weekend? Well, that was my day today. I was up early making My List of things to do for the weekend with every intention it would take all weekend. Translation ~ cleaning, laundry, planning meals, shopping, Taxes!
I am happy to say that it ALL happened today (well I have one open item on my taxes, but…..) and we have a fun day tomorrow.
I powered up this morning with Egg-wiches for both of us (6 points+).
The Husband actually ran out and brought me Starbuck’s back while I was crunching away on our taxes.
Grande Non-Fat, Decaf Latte with Caramel Drizzle on top (3 points+)
After heading to Sam’s Club, we decided we should eat lunch BEFORE we went to Trader Joe’s to keep from buying everything in the store.
Enter Panera with a new to me ~ You Pick 2!
Fuji Apple Chicken Salad sans stinky cheese! I am completely IN LOVE with these crunchy apple chips, but, have to admit I totally think their Fuji Apple Vinaigrette tastes like Green Jolly Ranchers LOL.
It’s still delicious and I would totally get this salad again. (6 points+)
Chicken Noodle Soup ~ I keep forgetting to try the Tortilla Chicken & Pesto Veggie (2 points+)
All together with a whole grain baguette (5 points+ and worth every single one!) I LOVE the chew factor and nuttiness of the whole grain baguette.
Mid-Afternoon Tax Crunch ~ 1/2 oz Salt & Vinegar Almonds (2 points+)
We actually picked up this Organic Wood-Fired Sicilian Style Pizza at Trader Joe’s for a night when we didn’t feel like really “cooking”.
That night actually turned out to be tonight
The stats are pretty decent ~ 8 points+ for 1/3 of the pizza.
It is definitely A LOT smaller than the box, but, it still looked pretty delicious when we took it out.
I think one of my favorite parts is that half way through you drizzle this spicy red pepper olive oil over the pizza and crust to give it a bit of a kick.
I cut the pizza into 6 slices making each slice 4 points+ a piece. It totally is a mental thing for me to make me feel like it is more.
It’s not bad ~ I like the spicy kick of the pepper oil and creaminess of the cheese, but, it really does taste frozen pizza like.
Served up with gigantic side salads topped with a sprinkle of Black Pepper Almonds, garlic & cheese croutons and Balsamic Vinaigrette (4 points+)
I feel like I have had a really successful week regardless of what the scale says tomorrow. I have tracked everything I have eaten, earned some activity points and I am even leaving some WPA on the table. It’s all about consistently doing those things week after week ~ fingers crossed it shows!
We might head out to Sushi & a Movie tomorrow ~ I cannot wait!!!
Have any of you seen any good movies lately that we should watch?
See you all tomorrow with my weigh-in and weekly menu.
