My new phone & this week’s menu

by DanicasDaily on May 20, 2012

Happy Sunday all!  This weekend has flown by, but, it has been the perfect mix of “almost” everything.  I got in a workout, cleaned house, created a Weekly Menu and shopped for it, prepped up some meals for the week, bought a new phone!, had fun at the movies and relaxed.

This morning we headed out to our Weight Watcher’s meeting.  I actually feel like my .2 lb gain was deserved since I pretty much fell off my tracker this past week.  It is sometimes really a challenge when life gets too busy to keep up, but, this week, I am definitely going to change that by being a Track Star.

This week I am focusing on 3 things:

1) Being a TRACK STAR ~ tracking 100% of everything I eat.

2) Couch to 5K workouts x’s 3, a 100 workout plus 1 Yoga workout (Maybe at the new studio that just opened up by us)

3) Power Foods ~ I want to see how many Simply Filling foods I can choose to have each day.

Speaking of……this morning started off with a big bowl of Farmer’s Market Fruit.


Plus a Maple Morning Star Veggie Sausage…I have decided this is my favorite flavor to eat straight up because of the maple-y-ness (2 points+)


All washed down with my “PIMPCO” Iced Coffee


Ok, well, almost….I was cracking up at how he wrote 1 pump mocha + 1 pump coconut for my Iced Dirty Coconut Coffee. I added a splash of 1/2 and half to make it 2 points+.


Before heading out for our afternoon of fun, I did some major prep to make sure this week is a success (in 2 hours).

Recipe coming up this week ~ it’s so good, I cannot wait for lunches this week!


I picked Chipotle for lunch because all week long I have been thinking about these tacos!

3 crunchy corn taco shells with chicken, pico de gallo, corn salsa, cheese & lettuce (15 points+ or 5 points+/taco)


The sweet corn salsa totally makes these amazing with the pico and grilled chicken.


After lunch, we headed over to Verizon to upgrade my phone so I can keep my unlimited data plan.  I am not sure if they will switch to limited in the summer, but, it’s totally worth it to me to keep unlimited as long as I can.

I pondered a Samsung Galaxy, but, when, it came down to it I am not sure I really wanted the new “Ice Cream Sandwich” software as much as I wanted a super long battery life.

Meet my new Droid Razr Maxx ~ it’s so cool! LOVE!


After lunch and picking out my new phone, we headed over to see the Battleship movie.  We both really liked the movie ~ it’s definitely suspenseful and keeps you on the edge of your seat the entire time. I think it’s funny at the end that they say the movie is based on the Battleship game.  I am not sure I see the correlation to that.

Since the topic at our meeting today was all about grilling and who does it, The Husband made sure he could have bragging rights next week.

He grilled up Tri Tip in his “secret” marinade (3 oz – 3 points+)


1/2 cup Potato Salad that I made up this morning (3 points+)


Plus grilled butternut squash and asparagus.




What is on your menu this week?  Is anyone grilling anything new?

Night all!
