Learn to Live at a Weight You Love

That was the best / most thought-provoking sentence used in my WW meeting today. We had a great meeting – it’s always good to see my other “coworkers” that work all over the state and just spend some time together. The post title definitely has me thinking about things, though. I’m sure I’ll have more to say about that in the near future  :)

 

I ate /drank all my food that I took with me, and I’m glad I packed my wrap and trail mix! They usually have some snacks, too, but I never have time to eat a full lunch before we leave, so I need more than just veggies over a 3-4 hour period!

I did take a full plate of veggies with about a tsp of some dip, plus this cheese stick.

I had this plate as my “appetizer” before digging into my green smoothie and almond butter/banana wrap.  I ate my trail mix about halfway through the meeting and had a bottle of water. The good thing is that they usually have pretty healthy snacks at these meetings – at least it’s not all cookies and brownies!

I felt a little like Sarah leaving the meeting – why, you ask?

Because I got to bring home the rest of this huge veggie tray! Now I know why you love free food!  :) I was so excited when they told me I could take the rest of it if I wanted. It’s already washed and cut, so it will make nice additions to lunches/snacks/and maybe dinners this week. I hope I made you proud!

Before I left for the meeting earlier today, I put a meat sauce in the crockpot to simmer away while I was gone – I actually cooked the meat yesterday, so I just had to dump that in with some crushed tomatoes and spices and let it go.

I’m so glad I thought to do that! All I had to do when I got home at 6 was cook some pasta, toast some bread, and put together some salads with the rest of the toppings from our salads last night.

I had a salad with romaine, black olives, ff feta, sundried tomatoes, red onion, and some olive oil/spices.

I made some whole wheat angel hair to have with my meat sauce – I had about a cup of pasta with some sauce. Plus 2 slices of that sourdough bread, toasted, and brushed with a little olive oil/spices.

Of course, eating this jump started my hunger again! I was fine until I ate this  :)  My “lunch” today was definitely not as filling as usual, so I made sure to have dessert tonight to make up for it!

I bought these interesting looking cookies at the grocery store Friday night and wanted to try them. I love the specialty and International isles in the grocery store! I get stuck there all the time. I saw this awesome muesli that I’ll have to buy soon, too.

They had them in a few different flavors, but I saw the cherry first so those are the ones I bought.

I crumbled up 2 of the cookies over some of my forbidden food (coconut milk ice cream).

These cookies were so strange, yet so good! They are such a different texture than any other cookie I’ve had, but I really enjoyed them. It’s a layer of spongecake on the bottom, a filling of this cherry-gummy-like stuff, then covered with a thin, crispy shell of chocolate. The chocolate/cherry/spongecake went great with the subtle coconut flavor in the ice cream. Betsy – I think you would love these cookies! The middle really reminded me of a really soft gummy.

Well…I’m watching Iron Chef and am going to try my best to catch up on blogs from today!

  1. WHOA, I would love one of those cookies, yum!

  2. Those cookies look interesting :) Does coconut milk ice cream taste strongly like coconut? (probably a dumb question, but I’ve never tried it!)

    Yay for free food!
