Happy Monday all! I was off running ~ “literally” this morning when I left the house with only 8 minutes before the train arrived. Actually I am pretty sure running from the bedroom to the kitchen to the living room and out the door didn’t really let The Husband sleep in ~ oops LOL…..
I managed to park and run to the train stop just as it was pulling in.
NOTE TO SELF ~ tell my brain the train is arriving 10 minutes BEFORE it does so then I am never late, right? ha!
Even though I pretty much had no time, I still managed to throw a few things in my bag for my ride for breakfast.
Mixed Berries ~ I am IN LOVE with these organic berries we got at Costco ~ they are firm!
Plus an Egg-Wich (5 points+)
When I hopped off the train I created a little “competition” and “challenged” myself to walk as fast as I could to beat The Guys (my walking buddies) who took the shortcut route.
I did it ~ Girls Rule! I walked my 1.3+ miles in 17 minutes passing them before they got to the front door!
Work is really crazy busy still, but, we all still found time for our Holiday Party ~ Mexican Food that was catered!
I had 6 chips with salsa to start x’s 2 (4 points+).
We were all served up plates of Tacos ~ I think they know me too well already LOL.
Chicken Taco (5 points+) ~ my favorite!
Pork Taco (5 points+)
With Rice & Beans on the side (5 points+ for what I ate)
I had actually planned on passing up dessert but one of my co-workers delivered this Red Velvet Cupcake. I thought of trying to take it home to The Husband but didn’t think it would make the train ride. It was totally worth it (5 points+)
Since we already had our salad mix made up from last night, dinner only took about 10 minutes to make.
I have pretty much decide BACON, cheese and sunflower seeds totally go with grapes on top of salads ~ this combination made our salads creamy, crunchy, smoky, sweet and not like any “diet” salad you will ever eat!

I cannot wait for The Biggest Loser Finale tomorrow night ~ who are you rooting for???
