Happy Wednesday all! You all were cracking me up all day long trying to guess what actually was IN my latte on this week’s Wordless Wednesday. When I posted the picture I never imagined you all would actually translate the abbreviations. I figured your brain would pretty much revert like mine did to a little kid or like Beavis and Butthead by thinking ~ there is “butt” on your cup ~ haha.
I actually picked up that latte at Chicory in Downtown Sacramento when I was in training last week. When I picked up my cup, I couldn’t resist asking, ummmm…what exactly does the “BUTT” represent?
The girl said without a hitch “Butter Toffee” ~ you know, like caramel. We use BUTT to tell the difference between caramel sauce and caramel syrup. I was like ohhhh, who knew I’d ever have a drink with butt in it. She laughed and was like, good point ~ maybe we should change that to BT.
So funny! For the record, those guessing ~ it was an Iced, Nonfat Decaf Latte with Caramel Sauce aka BUTT sauce drizzled on top. I will never be able to think of my iced latte the same now ~ LOL.
This morning I was up at the crack of dawn to hop on the treadmill for a 2 mile run. Today was such a great running day ~ it truly felt effortless and I felt fast. I wish I knew the secret to making that happen every day.
I didn’t really leave myself much time to make breakfast so I ended up grabbing a hard boiled egg and a banana for my drive into work. (SF) – 2 points+
We had a going away luncheon today at Round Table Pizza for one of my co-workers. I told myself I can pick whatever toppings I want on the salad bar, just avoid the pizza buffet.
SUCCESS!!! Even though I went back for more salad, I managed to get away with a big salad and caved to a couple of bites of a veggie slice (I ran this morning just for those bites )
In my bowl (SF + 6 WPA for the cheese, seeds & dressing) – 8 points+:
- Romaine lettuce
- Green peppers
- 1 scoop of 3 bean salad I didn’t eat – it was sweet (weird)
- Hard Boiled Egg – protein power!
- 1 Tbsp cheese
- 1 Tbsp sunflower seeds
- 2 Tbsp ranch on the side
My salad bar must have ~ Hard Boiled Eggs! Without them, I would never be full or satisfied. My like to have ~ sunflower seeds for the salty, nutty crunch.
Before heading back to the office, I grabbed a Grande, Iced, Nonfat, Decaf Latte with “caramel” sauce drizzled on top. (SF) – 2 points+
When I walked in the door, The Husband completely surprised me by having a “fancy” dinner all made up and ready to go. I love him! Today was a day I didn’t feel like cooking at all.
BBQ Thin Pork Chops ~ I had one, then, went back for another (SF) – 4 points+ for 4 oz.
“Fancy” scooped Harvest Grain Salad (SF) – 2 points+
He used my 1/4 cup measuring bowl to make “fancy” scooped brown rice too. (SF) – 2 points+
He rounded it all out with simple side salads although I decided to save mine for lunch tomorrow since I was full.

What is the one thing you have to have on your salad whenever you go to the salad bar?
As a kid, I was all about piles of shredded carrots with sunflower seeds and ranch. As an adult, I am all about, the incredible, edible, egg!
