Happy Sunday all! Thanks for all the comments on our Fall Decorations and this years Pumpkin Family. Fall is by far one of my favorite seasons for everything from decorating to baking to the weather. There is just something in the air from like September 1st through January that makes everyone happier. I know The Husband thinks I am funny for thinking that, but, it’s true…watch and you will see LOL.
I really feel like today’s weigh in at the scale was a “gift” because I really do not think I earned my loss of .4 lbs, but, I’ll take it! I honestly had a challenging week on so many levels from long hours, tons of stress, only fitting in one run and more importantly, eating some quite a few not so Simply Filling meals (hello Dim Sum!) I am glad I got this week out of my system because it really helped to motivate and re-focus my journey.
After all, it’s now 7 weeks until Thanksgiving and 6 weeks to Jamaica!!!
This morning started off with 3 Brown Sugar Banana Nut Mini Muffins (SF + 5 WPA) – 5 points+. I actually made the chopped walnuts bigger this time and you could really taste them.
Plus a banana for staying power and to help keep me at just 3 muffins.
After our Weight Watchers meeting, we headed over to Starbuck’s for lattes. Grande Nonfat Decaf Latte with Caramel drizzle on top. (SF) – 3 points+
I totally planned our trip up to my nieces party to make sure we had time to stop for lunch at Jack’s Urban Eats. If I was ever to open a restaurant one day, I would totally open a Jack’s ~ I LOVE how simple, fresh and delicious everything is here and never get tired of it even though we just ate there on Friday night.
In today’s salad mix (100% Simply Filling) – 6 points+ :
- mixed greens plus grilled chicken with 6 toppings:
- kidney & garbanzo beans
- grilled mushrooms
- pickled red onions
- cherry tomatoes
- Balsamic vinegar & olive oil on the side
After lunch we were off to the Roller Derby for my nieces 9th Birthday Party. Let me just say I didn’t realize at all how LONG it had had been since I skated until my niece asked…..After pondering, it’s been at least 25 years! Man, that made me feel old when I said it
I am proud to say I remembered how to skate and quickly found my groove like I had just skated yesterday. The Husband took a little bit of convincing since this was only the third time he has ever skated in his life….he did great and only fell once making it look like he planned it!
My Mom snapped pictures and took video of all of us Thanks Mom!
Watching my 5 year old nephew run skate ~ so funny that we had the same expression lol.
So fun ~ I can’t wait to skate again even if we were pretty wiped out after a little less than 2 hours lol.
The Husband picked dinner tonight ~ any guesses (on what he ALWAYS picks)???
Steak Sandwiches….not just any steak sandwiches, but, the WW Best Ever Cheesesteak Sandwiches. (SF + 2 WPA for the hollowed out bread) – 8 points+.
