Happy Hump Day all! This morning started off with some Honest Foods and a little Justin’s Almond Butter…..
I have learned since my Blueberry Crack experience that it is not in my best interest to eat the ENTIRE plank bar. This morning I broke off 1/4 of this Pomegranate Granola Plank as a crumbly topper for 2 pts.
Note to self ~ those stats are for HALF the bar, not all 😉
Plus a dallop of Classic Justin’s Almond Butter (1 tsp for 1 pt) ~ it’s tasty, but, I think I may LOVE the Maple better.
As much as I LOVE almond butter, I hate to admit that I am not sure it added anything other than calories to my breakfast 🙁
I added it to 1 cup of blueberries with 1 container of TJ’s 0% Blueberry Greek yogurt.
This totally reminded me of spring and farmer’s markets ~ oh, how I cannot wait for it to be Farmer’s Market season again ~ just 2-3 months! The POM Honest Foods plank is ok, it’s tasty and I LOVED the big chunks of fruit, however, I feel like it tastes a bit perfume like from the POM maybe?
I rocked out to music, slammed out some work and snacked on a 1 pt TJ’s string cheese and a banana (2 pts).
I spent the next hour having a full on conversation with myself about what to do about lunch. I had planned on getting out for a run, but, honestly, I wasn’t feeling it. So, I thought, maybe I should go out to eat and get that BEET salad with my co-worker…nope, she couldn’t go either *sigh* Then, I thought, ok, fine, maybe I should just work through lunch since I have a deadline this week….NOOO, I need to get outside. I finally decided I’d get take out and forgo the lunch I’ve been bringing all week.
But, as soon as I walked outside, it was BEAUTIFUL! Sunny and slightly cool/warm. I couldn’t pass up such an amazing day ~ so I quickly changed into my running clothes before I could let those voices in my head say anything else. I am so glad I did ~ I had an amazing 3-ish mile run.
I always feel AMAZING after my run, so I need to remember that when I hear those voices in my head 😀
You all will laugh at this part, I even brought $$ to pick up lunch on the way back (can you tell I really wanted that BEET salad?!) But, I am uber proud to say, I passed it up and had a super delish lunch.
My FANTASTIC wrap included:
1 La Tortilla Low Carb Wrap (1 pt)
1 wedge Laughing Cow (1 pt)
Big smear of Spicy Apple Mustard (0 pts)
6 slices of honey roasted turkey (2.5 pts)
For crunch, I had some Stacy’s Parmesan Garlic Pita Chips…I LOVE these but know I can only be around them if I have them in these mini 3 pt bags. I can totally eat an entire big bag without thinking about it.
Mini peppers (LOVE these!) and Cantaloupe for dessert (1 pt).
I did manage to “reward” myself with the last of my ChocoLOVE Dark Chocolate with Cherries and Almonds. I LOVE this flavor! 3 squares = 1.5 pts of awesomeness!
The Husband met me after my Weight Watcher meeting and we did a little shopping for birthday gifts and cards. I pretty much did not want to cook so we had our FAVORITE tacos from Vasquez….two chicken tacos for 8 points.
Don’t worry all, I will get back in the kitchen and whipping up some good recipes again tomorrow night.
Oh and BIGGEST LOSER ~ LOVE/HATE it ~ I LOVED who got sent home, but, I hate the to be continued….the SUSPENSE! I am not sure who I am rooting for yet….although I did start to LOVE the Grey team a bit more yesterday along with yellow and purple.
Tomorrow we have a BBQ at work ~ wish me luck in picking good choices or resisting and eating something good for me. I am really trying to save up my points for this weekend!
I am off to read, relax and catch some zzzzz’s!
