Happy Hump Day all! Thanks for all the great show ideas on yesterday’s post. I totally jotted them down and have convinced The Husband we NEED to check them out. It was tough because he is a big fan of American Pickers, International House Hunters, ESPN everything, but, he agreed that some of the shows are probably better than The Bachelor LOL.
Tonight’s post is going to be FAST because I am exhausted and cannot wait to do my 20 minutes of yoga and crawl in bed. Now that I think of it being HUNGRY all day long probably has something to do with needing some more zzzzz’s.
Do you all notice that? Are you hungrier when you don’t get your 8+ hours of sleep?
My co-worker was telling me yesterday how Starbuck’s gave her a FREE drink for “Feel Good February” so I totally thought I NEED to go to see if I get one for FREE too.
Ummmm….nope, no Feel Good February for me. No worries though, it didn’t stop me from getting my usual Venti Iced Dirty Latte (FF latte with 1 pump mocha) (4 points+)
Another delicious 100% Whole Wheat Banana Muffin with a banana (4 points+)
I wish I could be someone who get away without having protein in the morning….then again, I might just live on scones, muffins and bagels. I was hungry 2 hours later.
Mid morning Snack ~ 4 TJ’s Social Crackers & Sargento LF Colby Cheese (4 points+)
I pretty much dreamed about lunch all morning long. That is honestly probably why I was hungry 2 hours after breakfast
I couldn’t wait to dig into more Fire Cracker Chicken over 1/2 cup brown rice. (8 points+)
Spicy Asian Peanut Slaw (1 point+)
Keeping with the theme of the day, I was starving again 3 hours later. I snacked on some more cashews and an apple (3 points+).
I had actually planned making The Husband his STEAKHOUSE DINNER tonight, but, when I got home he told me we had to help some of our friends move some heavy furniture.
I was STARVING on our way home and we both agreed we didn’t have the patience to wait for something to cook. So The Husband decided it’s been wayyyyy too long since we visited our friends at Vasquez Deli ~ the BEST tacos in the world!
Since Vasquez doesn’t have their nutritional information online, I looked up the points in my Complete Food Companion. You could do the same online or Weight Watchers Mobile.
I got 2 Spicy, Crunchy Chicken tacos for 10 points+.
This really is the BEST, Spicy Shredded Chicken ever!….it’s so juicy, spicy and melts in your mouth!
NEW AT FRIENDS FOR WEIGHT LOSS
There are still a few hours left to enter to win Annie’s new 1 point+ dressings ~ the 6 winners will be picked tomorrow!
What do you do when you have HUNGRY days where you feel like you can and will eat everything in site?
For me, I just eat everything in site….KIDDING! I usually try to FOCUS on drinking my water and picking FREE snacks (fruits and/veggies) to bulk up my meals and snacks. I really try to avoid things that won’t help my hunger (empty calories)….Sometimes this works and sometimes it doesn’t….for those days, I dig into my WPA.
