Happy Tuesday all! I think the consensus on the BEST PUB GRUB is nachos and anything fried. I actually think I have to agree with Nachos being one of my favorite things. This week Tracey and I are planning on making quite possibly the BEST Nacho Recipe yet…..here is a hint…it involves sweet potatoes, bacon and it’s totally Weight Watcher friendly!
Today’s WORKOUT was tough, but, good. I challenged myself to see if I could run a mile straight without stopping (usually I walk/run in intervals)…..and I DID IT!
* I ran 1 MILE without stopping and boosting my speed every 30-60 seconds from 5.0-6.5 mph.
* I recovered during a 10 minute power walk
* Then, I finished with ONE HUGE HILL on the elliptical putting the cross ramp up to 20 so it hits all your leg muscles, then, starting at a resistance of 10 and moving it up by 1 each minute until I got to 20. The last minute is 30 seconds at 19 and 20.
I was surprisingly NOT hungry after working out so I waited until my body told me I was hungry 3 hours later ~ awesome!
Cheesy Sausage Breakfast Burrito (6 points+)
Super Sweet Organic Raspberries.
I brought my lunch today (the same as yesterday) but I honestly didn’t want it at all….sometimes that happens ~ there is always tomorrow . I really think it was the 70 degrees of sunshine outside that made me want to get out.
I ended up walking to Tacubaya and getting
chips & salsa the most delicious take out.
Crunchy Chicken Tostada with Spicy Chipotle Slaw (8 points+)
It was THIS salad that drew me there….I am IN LOVE with it! This is only a HALF salad ~ crazy huge (3 points+)
“Ensalada de Primavera– mixed greens, shredded cabbage, carrots, red onion and avocado tossed in a lemon vinaigrette, sprinkled with toasted pumpkin seeds.”
Train Snack! I actually pondered getting an iced coffee but when I really thought about it and the fact I didn’t have any dairy today, I decided on a Medium Iced Dirty Latte (4 points+).
I had planned on making the Inside Out Bacon Sliders on Hawaiian Buns when I got home but we both were not that hungry.
Instead, I made us Egg Salad Sandwiches topped with crushed red pepper flakes. I LOVE how it makes it look like bacon….next time
1 egg + 2 egg whites + 1 Tbsp reduced cal Mayo+Mustard+ S&P + 1 slice TJ’s FF Multi-Grain Bread = 5 points+ of deliciousness!
Plus a big bowl of fruit shared with The Husband.
My I don’t want to cook or do anything resembling cooking dinner
I was proud of myself for actually MAKING a real dinner because all I really wanted was to eat this entire bar little by little……
2 squares for 3 points+
I LOVE how you can taste the buttery crispy toffee with hints of the sea salt ~ LOVE!

What is your most favorite chocolate in the world?
I have to admit I LOVE ChocoLOVE ~ all types especially Dark Chocolate Sea Salted Almond, but, I am also a big fan of those Jo’s Dark Chocolate Sea Salted Caramels and Scharffen Berger’s Milk Chocolate Sea Salted Almonds……Now I need to add Godiva Milk Chocolate Sea Salted Caramel to the list.
Who says you have to have just one….doesn’t it all just depend on your mood.
Do you drink anything when you have your chocolate?
I LOVE coffee with my chocolate especially if it’s a dark chocolate, but, I know others who say red wine and chocolate.
Off to work on recipes (2/3’s of the way done!) and catch some zzzzzz’s!
