Happy BIGGEST LOSER Day all! I made sure to get up early to earn my Biggest Loser “BUTT Time”tonight. I did a quick 30 minute Calorie Blasting Power Hills work. It gets me every time and I often think it’s harder to walk hills fast than to run.
I really wanted something fresh and clean for breakfast this morning.
Plus, I’ve been wanting to find a way to use my latest Trader Joe’s find…Organic Raw Honey!
I LOVE how thick/creamy it is ~ it has a few honey crystals and a strong honey flavor ~ a little goes a long way which I LOVE too!
1/2 c fresh organic berries
1/2 c frozen mango
1/2 c frozen banana
1/2 c TJ’s FF Greek Yogurt (for protein)
1/2 c FF Milk
1 Tbsp Ground Flax Seed
1 c Arugula because I didn’t have any spinach & wanted a veggie
1 tsp Tj’s Organic Raw Honey to take the bite off the arugula
The RESULT was awesome ~ super thick, creamy and refreshing…You really can see ALL the colors too. (4 pts!)
I also had a FLAT (attempt #2 wasn’t as successful) Lemon Chia Muffin ~ 3 pts and tasty, but, I definitely need to work it a little more.
Mid morning I decided to have some
BRIE Laughing Cow and apricot jam on Ak Mak Sesame Crackers. (4 pts)
I was STILL hungry, so I snacked on a RF Cabot cheese and drank a Morning Burst (Hot Lemon Water). (1 pt)
At lunch today my co-worker and I headed over to the Napa Farmer’s Market. It was so FUN to see my FAVORITE cookie lady (Annie The Baker) again and to check out all the goodies. It was so HARD to not buy really anything….Next week!
I couldn’t resist buying some PUMPKIN BOLANI Bread! I was so excited that they are back at the Farmer’s Market!!!! AWESOME stat’s huh ~ 6 servings in a bag, 1 point each.
It’s sweet, spicy and a little salty….imagine reheating it to be crispy again!
Lunch was MORE Spicy Chicken Tacos with Extra Spice ~ Sriracha on top!
I seriously think these get better each day (6 pts for 2),
Mid afternoon my co-worker busted out the Annie’s Cookies she bought and shared….Ummmm, ya, who says NO to these…..I have a square of each and maybe another of the Sugar Cookie. I think Doodle Snicker might be my 2nd favorite. Probably about 1 point a bite (4 pts or more total)
We snacked on a couple of mini snap peas from our garden while dinner cooked ~ home grown is so much better than anything….we worked hard for these LOL.
Little buckets of cheesy goodness! I <3 Annie’s Mac & Cheese! ( 5 pts)
Perfectly steamed crispy swiss chard with garlic salt, black pepper and a little ICBINB Spray.
I was such a snacker today…..I just had a really hungry day and didn’t get full until after lunch. I am so glad for my new Weight Watchers week beginning tomorrow….sometimes you just need that feeling of a fresh start and chance to succeed.
SHOW TIME!!! I LOVED hearing who you all want to be in the final 3 for Biggest Loser. I am STILL undecided….they all look so good and have totally earned it! I can totally justify a reason for each person to be or not be in the final 3……
That being said……WHO DO YOU WANT TO WIN IT???? I’ll tell you my choice after tonight’s show 😀
