The Executive Decision…..

by DanicasDaily on July 16, 2012

Happy Monday all! Last night I made the Executive Decision that if my workouts are not happening like I think they should be, then, I NEED to get my bootie out of bed early so nothing can get in my way.  This morning, I stuck to that decision and hopped on the treadmill for a 30 minute C25K jog/walk.

It’s amazing to me how I can be so tired getting up to workout, but, so completely energized after that I “almost” do not need coffee lol.

A few of you have emailed and commented asking me if I could still share the daily points+ of the foods I eat even while I am doing Simply Filling.  So, I am going to do my best to show both for both plans.  Please let me know if you all know an easy way to read it with the points+ and WPA for SF showing.

I think I finally found a bread that makes my Egg-Wiches tastes good again!  It’s completely crazy to think I’d ever say I LOVE a Thin Bun since I’d pick the real deal bread over light bread any day.

But, I do ~ I can say it ~ I love Thin Buns! lol…..


My eggwich is 100% Simply Filling or 5 points+ if you are counting

  • 1 “fried” egg topped sprinkled with sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Ultra Thin slice 2% Sargento Colby Jack
  • 1 Sara Lee Honey Wheat Thin Bun
  • ICBINB Spray & Sriracha (on the bottom!)

So completely delicious & filling ~ I can’t believe it’s been so long since I’ve had an egg-wich.


Breakfast actually kept me full for 5 hours with absolutely 0 snacks required.  Yesterday I whipped up this super quick, vegan two bean salad to have for lunches this week.


It’s super simple to make and tastes even better the next day after all the flavors have marinated. 

Recipe coming up tomorrow. 100% Simply Filling or 5 points+ if you are counting.


I started with my usual base


Then, piled on a heaping 1 cup of the Two Bean Salad.  It’s slightly sweet, slightly tangy and I love all the textures from the fresh veggies and beans.


My co-worker gave me her dill triscuits because she didn’t like them.  I really liked the dilliness of these.  (2 1/2 crackers for 1 points+ towards my WPA).


I also had a lite string cheese with melon on the side. (1 points+ if you are counting)


Midafternoon I grabbed a nonfat decaf latte for snack with blueberries.  I have found having an afternoon snack really helps me not feel like eating everything in the house when I walk in the door. (3 points+ if you are counting).


As soon as I walked in the door, we both got started on prepping everything to make Carne Asada Tacos.

I had 2 tacos ~ one with a Trader Joe’s 1 points+ Low Carb Tortilla and the other with a 1 points+ Mission Extra Thin Corn Tortilla.  I think I like these with corn the best.

Both tacos looked like this….A sprinkle of low-fat sharp cheddar cheese, romaine, cabbage, carrots & green onions.


Then, I piled on 1. 5 oz Bill Bailey’s Carne Asada, 0% Greek Yogurt, hot sauce, tomatoes & green onions.


Plus 1/8th of an AVOCADO!  Totally bummed this is not longer a simply filling food like it was on CORE…but, totally worth the points+.

I counted 3 WPA for my tacos.  Each taco is 4 points+ if you are counting.


Have you all seen the new Dove Sea Salted Dark Chocolate Caramels….quite possibly my favorite new think.  Super dark, salty, sweet and satisfying.  1 really is enough (1 WPA)


STATS (12 am – 9pm)

  • 2,686 calories burned
  • 9,712 steps taken
  • 5 WPA used, 37 WPA remaining (24 daily points+)

Night all!
