Happy Sunday all! This morning’s meeting was totally in line with what I have been thinking about this past week now that my Memorial Day goal has ended. For those wondering, I managed to lose 5 lbs towards that goal. All week long I have been pondering the question of “What’s Next?”
Followed up by this phrase rambling in my head ~ Pick a goal……Any goal!
Make it short term or make it long term ~ just pick one!
I was debating between two goals that some may consider short term, but, I considered short and long term.
Short ~ July 4th
Long ~ Labor Day
And then, my Weight Watcher leader made it easy ~ she had us all write post cards to ourselves with what we wanted to accomplish by July 3rd.
I do not want to stop there and decided that I want a LONG TERM goal to focus on through the summer (Labor Day!).
After achieving my July 4th Goal, I plan to continue them and add on the following with:
- Lose 10 lbs from now until Labor Day
- Run at least one 5K with my new found running buddy who also owns a MINI
- Go Simply Filling for a minimum of 2 weeks ~ they do not have to be consecutive but I want to bring my focus back to Power Foods and focus on getting in my good health guidelines BEFORE I add in anything else.
I think that is a great starting point and I feel ready to FOCUS! The past two weeks were rough as I am completely challenged when I fall out of my routine. I am glad I maintained this week at weigh, but, I am ready to see that scale move onward and downward!
Today started with a Dirty Coconut Iced Coffee and banana (2 points+).
We spent the morning driving around and buying everything we need to go on our first Camping Trip with my Sis and her family this summer. I am so freakin’ excited because we have never camped together and I haven’t camped since my parents Jeep Club Days.
Instead of grabbing lunch out, we decided to stop at home and make it ~ SUCCESS!
I really have been wanting to try this new Laughing Cow Garden Vegetable flavor. It’s good but not really much different than the original.
I also wanted to use up my Red Pepper Spread……
This is delicious on sandwiches, egg wiches, in soup and on wraps. You do not even taste the egg plant.
The Husband who is an Olive Freak couldn’t wait to try his spread…..
For those who LOVE green olives (like him!)
My wrap started with a Laughing Cow Wedge, Red Pepper spread, green onions and jalapenos.
He had Laughing Cow, Green Olive Tapenade and green onions.
Both topped with organic greens….
2 oz Brown Sugar Baked Ham and 1 slice Jarlsberg Lite Swiss.
Tightly rolled up in a Trader Joe’s Organic Corn & Flour Tortilla, then, sliced in half.
While I made up the wraps, he was in charge of the veggies with lite ranch ~ can you tell?! I was totally cracking up at how proud he was of his “decorated” platter. (1 points+ for the dip)
7 points+ for each wrap!
I stole some of his Baked Sour Cream and Cheddar Ruffles when I saw you get 11 chips for 1 points+ (deal!)
Mid afternoon while I finally caught up on all my emails, comments, etc, we shared some berries and cherries.
All weekend long we have wanted to grill burgers and tonight, we finally did.
Start by toasting up the buns then topping with the “secret sauce” and a big pile of organic mixed greens.
Add a delicious lean Cheeseburger and top with thick tomato slices and pickles.
Then, serve with a big pile of crunchy parmesan Kale Chips.(10 points+ for everything on my plate)
STATS: (12am – 645 pm)
- 21 daily points+ (I am planning on having trail mix later for 4 points+)
- 2,019 calories burned
- 3, 948 steps taken
HERE IS WHAT IS ON THE MENU THIS WEEK
~ (a few repeats since there wasn’t a whole lotta of cooking going on last week)
- Asian Beef, Asparagus & Mushroom Bowls
- Chicken & Kale Orecchiette (bucket pasta!) toss, salad

What goal did you pick? Is it short term, long term or both?
Fingers crossed I can finally have a normal week back in my routine this week ~ it’s another one of my goals along with delivering a daily to you all every day. Now, if only my schedule will cooperate.
