Loop the Lagoon & This Week’s Menu

by DanicasDaily on April 14, 2013

Happy Sunday all!  Today has been such a fun day even though it totally flew by.  I started off at my Weight Watcher’s meeting, checking in with a 2 lb loss!  As crazy as it sounds, I honestly think I have better success when I am incorporating protein into my diet, versus going Meatless.  It just goes to show that everyone loses different and  it really helps to learn what works best for your body.  I’ll take it!

Before heading out to my meeting, I cooked up an egg-wich on the go.  Some of you have asked how much sriracha I use….I say start small with a little line, then, work your way up.  I totally think there is something about sriracha that the more you have it, the more you can use….

Since I knew we were heading out after the meeting for a nice walk around the lagoon, I bulked up breakfast with a banana and coffee that I snacked on during the meeting. (SF + 1 WPA) – 6 points+ as I used 2 slices of cheese today.

I headed over to Eagle Trail a little early with one of my WW Buddies to loop the Lagoon, not once, but, 2.5 times!

It is such a beautiful walk along this trail that goes all the way around the lake.  One lap is about 2 miles.

Time totally flew by as we chatted along the way ~ before we knew it, we had almost lapped the lake twice!

When our other WW buddies arrived, we finished lapped 2 and walked backwards to meet up with them.

Can I just say our WW Leader is like the Hostess with the Mostest even when we are not at the meeting?  She stocked up her truck with pre-measured treats ~ nuts, trail mix, berries, oranges……

And an ice chest packed with these super cute mini waters!

I grabbed 3 berries, an orange and a mini water ~ isn’t that the cutest bottle you’ve ever seen?  It’s barely bigger than my orange.

After the walk, I headed home, got ready and headed out of town for my nieces Baby Shower.  Yup, I totally made her take a picture with all her food Open-mouthed smile

My sister pinked out the shower in every way imaginable down to pink punch for everyone.  Any guesses on what she is having?! LOL…..

Not only did my sis make three lasagnas (two meat & a veggie for me)….

She made cupcakes and little tiny princess crowns for everyone to take with them.  The cake was also made just for my niece too.

I piled half my plate with salad and veggie tray veggies ~ topped with a few croutons and about 1 Tbsp of Olive Garden Italian Dressing in the bottle.  It tastes just like what you get in the restaurant.  (SF + 3 WPA) – 3 points+

I grabbed a breadstick too, but, after one bite, decided it wasn’t worth it to me so I gave it to The Husband.

Mini Lasagna Squares x’s 2 ~ 8 points+

The Husband won the prize for guessing how to say baby in 10 different languages.  Here he is with his pink prize bag, pen and my super cute niece ~ LOVE!

I did split a cupcake with The Husband, but, passed on the cake ~ fondant kinda freaks me out.

(SF+ 3 WPA) – 3 points+
