Happy Friday EVE all! Thanks for sharing your Non-Scale Victories (NSV) on yesterday’s post. You all are awesome and completely inspire me with all your successes. Sometimes I find it really helps to step back and focus on the little successes we have each day.
Speaking of which ~ I feel like I have had an AWESOME on track week and I know my week has been a HUGE success no matter what the scale says tomorrow.
* I have tracked every single bite!
* I focused on lots of fruits/vegetables this week & meeting my healthy guidelines daily.
* I worked out actively (3 times) and inactively (2 times) this week!
* I am finishing my week with 31 WPA remaining!
* I FEEL “IN THE ZONE” for the first time in awhile & IT FEELS GOOD!
I am actually pretty excited to weigh in tomorrow because I feel like I really worked the program. That being said, I know I had a big for me loss last week so I am good with whatever it shows.
Breakfast on the go on the train ~ 1 cup Quaker Oatmeal Squares (6 points+)
My workout today was NO WALK IN THE PARK I LOVE doing THIS Calorie Blasting Walk because honestly I think it’s tougher than running. It’s a continue walk up a big hill with a few power/speed walks thrown in the mix.
Post workout I snacked on a Morning Star Maple Breakfast Sausage (2 points+)
Plus a big bowl of fruit.
I was STILL hungry after 20 minutes so I snacked on a Mini Babybel (1 points+)
Today’s Lunch Box to save for our work game next week was Amy’s Tamale Verde.
I honestly LOVE every Amy’s meal I’ve ever had because they taste like someone made them for you and they have REAL ingredients you can pronounce.
9 points+ and worth it because it fills you up.
I did miss having the CHEESE one, but, the black bean version is just as delicious.
Served with a few veggies and ranch (2 points+)
Dessert ~ Jo’s Dark Chocolate Sea Salted Caramel (2 points+) ~ I get a two pack at Pete’s and it looks like this. LOVE!!!
We also had a “PIZZA PARTY” at work today!
How cute are my co-workers?! They totally set up our break room to make it look like a Pizza Bistro!
We didn’t have pizza in the REAL sense, but, we did get to try TWO NEW Annie’s Organic Snack Mix Flavors that are coming out at SUPER TARGETS this month.
SNACK MIX #1 PIZZA made with Organic Valley Cheddar Cheese!
Pizza provides the distinct flavor of tomato, cheese and Italian herbs, all blended together then sprinkled on our baked Cheddar and Buttery Rich crackers and bunny-shaped pretzels.
SNACK MIX #2 TRADITIONAL ~ think Chex Mix Flavors!
Traditional offers baked Whole Wheat and Buttery Rich crackers seasoned with the classic party mix flavors of Annie’s Worcestershire sauce, garlic and onion. Pretzels are added in creating a savory snack mix that is sure to be a party pleaser.
Fun fact—we’re using our own Annie’s Naturals Worcestershire sauce in the mix!
To date my FAVORITE Organic Snack Mix was the cheddar….but, now, I think I am undecided. I LOOOOOVVVEEEED both flavors!
Both are 4 points+ per half cup.
Not a single ingredient you won’t recognize ~ LOVE!
I had two cups ~ Pizza on the left which reminded me of pepperoni pizza a little and the Traditional on the right which totally tastes like Chex mix.
The Husband actually beat me home today and asked me what was for dinner (I LOVE it when he decides he wants to “cook).
I told him I couldn’t decide between two things
So, he went with both….Don’t you all LOVE how he cut my sandwich diagonally in half?! He knows me so well (6 points+)
I LOVE his fancy potato presentation too
My Mom and Dad always thought I was weird growing up because whenever we would go out to eat, I’d ALWAYS get a salad with ranch to go with my breakfast. I LOVE the combination and the fact that he gave me both things since I couldn’t decide
Topped with 2 Tbsp BoltHouse Yogurt Ranch & 1 Tbsp Sunflower Seeds (3 points+)
NEW AT FRIENDS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Sooooo…..do you think you all would be interested in a NEW Annie’s Snack Mix Giveaway so you can have your own “pizza party”?
Just one more day ~ woohoo!
