The hubby and I had to get some engagement pictures developed today so we decided to run some fun errands too. I took engagement pictures in Wake Forest last Monday and I am super excited how they turned out. I have gotten lots of comments from a lot of my family and friends so that makes me even more excited.
Today we went to Chick fil a for lunch. I was starving because I only had a granola bar this morning. I was busy sweeping and mopping today and didn’t have time to eat a bigger breakfast. I had the chargrilled and fruit salad with berry balsamic vinaigrette. Yum!
We went to Trader Joe’s (my fave grocery store) to get some snacks for our road trip to Hotlanta this week. Did I mention how excited I am to gamble at Cherokee? I love love love the casino! I only play on the penny and nickel machines, but it’s a rush 😉
And then we hit up The Skinny Dip Frozen Yogurt! It just opened right by TJ’s. They have the nutritional info and WW points listed on their website. Ladies and Gentlemen, I was home! I had Strawberry, and York Peppermint Patty. I could only eat 4 ounces so I ate half of this. I gotta remember to weigh every little bit. The husband didn’t mind finishing it off. Next time, I’m hitting up that toppings bar!
So you grab a cup, fill it with froyo and toppings and then you pay based on weight. It’s only 39 cents an ounce. I am in love!! I am beyond stoked about that place. Guilt free froyo. mmmm! We will be back again and again!!
I got some yummy snacks for the trip. Road trips make me nervous because we go out to eat a lot and I don’t know what the points value is for a lot of it. Thank goodness for guidebooks, weeklies, and eating half of my food! Wish me luck! I am so nervous. I love vacationing, but I am not the type of person to splurge on vacation. I still keep myself on track. I mean, why can’t you still eat what you want, but in smaller quantities? I don’t ever “splurge” or “go off my diet.” I eat what I want in moderation. On WW you are not on a diet. It’s a lifestyle. When you get to goal, you are still on WW, not a diet. That’s why I love this program-it’s not a quick fix. It’s for life. So if I want cake, I’m eating it. That’s why it works for me. I just plan ahead. Love it!!
Here is what I’ve been eating today:
|Fiber one bar
|Berry Balsamic Dressing 1/2 pack
|Wedge Fries (16!!!)
|Mini babybel light
I have 10 points an an AP left so I gotta get some more veggies and dairy in!
Yesterday we had the usual Saturday Cracker Barrel breakfast. I had the fruit and yogurt platter.
I did not eat that million calorie muffin and had one piece of toast with sugar free blackberry jelly.
For lunch I had a bowl of rice krispies and soy milk-the lunch of champions. We then took a long nap. When we woke up we were ready to go to Cary.
We went to Dick’s Sporting Goods first where I picked out this – it’s a HRM and calorie counter. Since I am counting calories and working out, I want to see how many calories I burn during my classes at the gym.
I can’t have it until the 28th, but I’m excited about it!
For dinner we had Chick-fil-a. I love the spicy chicken sandwiches! mmmm and we are trying to save money, so we are eating on the cheap lately.
This morning I had a half of sandwich thin with chocolate pb.
I then went to ZUMBA! Zumba is a dance workout where you are constantly moving for an hour. I was nervous because I haven’t taken dance since high school. My cousin Cayla and my really good friend Shelby went with me. It was Sunday morning so I expected the class to be small, but it turned out to be just us and an older lady.
I laughed and laughed. It was so much fun. If you just stop caring how stupid you look and laugh at yourself, you have a blast! I will be taking that class again!!
