Happy Monday all! Thanks for sharing the things you are focusing on this week ~ it’s definitely motivating to know we are all working towards common goals. Speaking of goals, I stuck to mine 100% today! This morning, I was up bright and early and hopped on the treadmill for a 30 minute jog/walk. It was definitely tough and not pretty at all, but, I stuck it out through it all ~ success!
I honestly love checking my workout off first thing because it’s like I have the rest of the day free to do whatever I want without the voices in my head reminding me I still “need” to move it!
Breakfast…..Kodiak Cake Flapjacks! I am currently addicted to using Trader Joe’s Coconut Nonstick Spray to cook them in. It makes the kitchen smell just like coconut pancakes.
2 Flapjacks topped with 1 Tbsp. Whipped Butter & 1 Tbsp. TJ’s Pure Maple Syrup (7 points+)
Plus 2 slices of Trader Joe’s Peppered Turkey Bacon (2 points+). So, crazy fun fact I learned today….Have any of you noticed that the Weight Watchers online tracker counts this as Simply Filling? I am totally surprised as much as I’d love to say BACON = SIMPLY FILLING
I knew my lunchtime meeting would run long so I made sure I grabbed a snack on my way in. Sargento RF Colby Stick and a serving of Everything Pretzels (5 points+) ~ In hindsight, I probably should’ve picked fruit instead.
Our usual Monday sandwich lunch in turned into sandwiches eaten outside on the patio of the Napa General Store.
I started off with a 1/4 of this gigantic Turkey, Bacon, Avocado Club ~ you can tell they use freshly roasted turkey (deliciousness) – 6 points+
Plus a big 1 cup scoop of one of my favorite goto salads for the Napa General Store.
Chinese Chicken Salad
“Shredded marinated chicken breast, local cabbage, scallions, toasted almonds, black sesame seeds, crisp won tons & house made Asian dressing”
I honestly come here just to get this salad ~ 1 cup = 6 points+
I am super proud I took only a couple of fries and passed on the rest ~ Want Power!
The Husband was in charge of dinner tonight and he totally went all out complete with the light up heart (waiting like a little kid for me to turn the corner and see it) lol.
Delicious grilled pork chops seasoned only with sea salt & pepper (5 points+)
Grilled Corn….2 points+ (so hard to count when it is 0 points+ on Simply Filling!)
With simple side salads topped with tomatoes from our garden and 1 Tbsp. Newman’s Lite Lime Vinaigrette (1 points+)
I am proud of the fact that I worked out today, tracked it all and made healthy choices for REAL food all day making it worth every single points+!
- 34 Daily Points+, 45 WPA remaining
