Happy Sunday all! As you all learned with my BB (Body Bugg), BM (Body Media) ~ probably the worst name I’ve chosen yet and AL (Active Link)….ok and well, Scooter (my MINI!) that I have a thing for naming my worldly possessions. Today has been such a fantastic day on so many levels….let me start off by counting the ways.
UP first, my Weight Watchers Meeting chalking up another 1.4 lbs lost!!! I am glad to see the scale continuing to move back down in my favor once again.
Before heading out the door, I topped one Kodiak Cake that I made yesterday with 1 Tbsp. Trader Joe’s Sunflower Butter & 1 Tbsp. Trader Joe’s Raspberry Jam (it tastes just like raspberries).
Then, I used another Kodiak Cake to put a lid on it (7 points+)
The irony ~ I usually have time to eat breakfast after weighing in before the meeting, but, today I did not….The beginning topic, focused eating ~ without distractions ~ oops LOL. If it counts for anything, I DID enjoy every single bite “during” the conversation.
After the meeting, we headed straight to Healdsburg to check out another antique fair. While The Husband browsed, I headed over to my favorite Mustache Cupcakery to get Four Barrels Coffee. I picked up a Lemon Macaroon for him too ~ isn’t it beautiful? I did have a bite and discovered I love these colorful cookies ~ they are crunchy on the outside, moist and creamy on the inside…they literally melt in your mouth.
After walking the fair and Healdsburg Avenue checking out all the shops on both sides of the street, we headed over to The Wurst Restaurant.
I started with a Teas’ Tea…..
While waiting for our food, I read the bottle and wondered if they should use this “quote” as an inspirational quote on their bottle….it’s not a good thought to think of muddied water while drinking ummm, brown tea!
All week long I had planned on having this Cowboy Burger ~ it’s this delicious local beef burger topped with local sharp cheddar, BACON, Liar’s BBQ sauce, homemade pickles, romaine, tomatoes and beer battered onion rings.
I am totally proud of the fact that I ordered the Junior Burger of the real deal….no stopping at salad or a veggie dog (while both super good), I went for exactly what I wanted and enjoyed every single points+. The breakdown based on ingredients 14 points+
I had a double success in ordering their pickled coleslaw versus sweet potato fries saving a whole lotta points+ (this is 0!)
The Husband order….any guesses? He couldn’t decide on a sausage or a hot dog so he got both LOL.
Along with Garlic Fries….I am probably the only person around that doesn’t love garlic fries. It’s not the flavor I mind as much as the fact that you taste them all day long. I feel the same way about Apple Jolly Ranchers.
On our way back, we made two stops just for me ~ First up ~ Target because one of my fabulous friends told me she found her FitBit Flex at Target! Thank you Target ~ I love you for having the flex in stock (I couldn’t handle waiting 6-8-12 weeks while everywhere else was backordered).
As you all may recall, I started pining for this back in April.
My thoughts so far ~ I am kinda IN LOVE with all it does and that I can see instant results with automatic updating on my iPhone. I wish they would have the same feature with the Droid Razr Maxx….soon.
The other cool thing ~ it syncs up with the free My Fitness Pal app and online tracker so you can compare your calories in with your calories out. If you wanted to get really social, you can post to Facebook and twitter instantly each day as well.
It is also FREE with no monthly fee to do any of this.
What I am looking forward to aside from learning more (there is nothing in the box to tell you anything about the flex ~ just one sheet of paper that says go to www.fitbit.com/setup in about 4 languages.….checking out the community of users, seeing my results (of course), setting some goals and challenging friends…then, getting the awards you can earn online!
After hitting a few more stores, we both pondered going home to cook or grabbing a salad at Mary’s….Mary’s won. Without thinking, I grabbed a piece of bread when they brought it out.
Sticking with my counting it all 2 points+
We shared a large Mary’s House Salad ~ I get the beats, he gets the salami and then, we share the rest. I had about half with ranch, fork dipped on the side 4 points+.
Then, we shared a small veggie pizza (he picked veggie ~ so proud of my meat lover!) I had two slices for 8 points+.
We figured we cap off our fun day with a stop at the yogurt shop. In today’s mix ~ strawberry, coconut and vanilla froyo topped with sprinkles, Captain Crunch!, a few white chocolate chips and a little whipped cream for no real reason at all. 5 points+
- STATS: 40 Daily Points+, 14 WPA used, 35 WPA remaining
- FB (worn for 3 hours): 2,232 steps, .96 miles, 1,653 calories burned and 1 sleep alarm tested just for fun!
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
How are you celebrating Memorial Day? And more importantly, what are you making?
We are heading over to our friends for a BBQ, Wine Tasting and Pool party. I am bringing the Healthy Potato Salad and Kale Chips (because they totally go together!) and we are grilling steak with salad.
