Good Day…Weird Stuff

April 22, 2015

It was just one of those good days that moved right along. Things got done. I had a plan for the day for what I would do, what exercise I would do, and what I would eat.

I stuck with my plan. Along with all the good things that filled up my day, there was some weird stuff too. Here’s my day……

Breakfast – delish

Blog, Emails, Facebook…Instagram!  (super important stuff!)

Yoga – Yay!

Starbuck’s – Yum

Car Wash – Overdue

Lunch – 1 POINT!!

Walk – 3 Miles! Yay again!

Errand’s – Weird

Dinner – Loving this salad combo!


Couch time…..Ahhhhhh………

One of my errands yesterday was to return a Rotisserie Chicken to Target. Yes, you read that right. I was returning a chicken! I’ve never bought a rotisserie chicken at Target before, and I love me some Target, but there was NO meat on this chicken! I don’t know if it over rotisserie-ed…..or what, but it was skin and bone. Literally. I thought it was the weirdest thing I’d ever seen. Until I was walking out of Target….then this happened.

I saw a woman that appeared to be in her 30’s or so…..with another woman who appeared to be in her 50’s or so. I’ll assume it was a mother/daughter duo out for a day of shopping, right? The younger woman was wearing a T-Shirt that said…..”Me and my mom talk sh*t on you”. I read it and then realized she was watching me read it, but then I thought when you wear a shirt like that, you want people to read it, right? Then I looked at who I assume was her mom to see if her t-shirt said…..”and we have no friends”. It was just a weird shirt. That doesn’t even make sense on a coffee mug, or a sign over your basement bar, or a sign at your lake house, or on a ball cap…..or anywhere! I would have been more amused if it would have just said….”me and my mom are bitches”. I considered asking her if I could take a picture of it so I could have said to her….no one is ever going to believe that someone is really walking around wearing a shirt that say’s this. Super weird, and I usually LOVE weird.

That is all. 

Here are yesterday’s eats……


Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal

Frothy Coffee





Un-Pictured Tall Nonfat Latte




Weight Watcher Zero Point Soup

14 g Trader Joe’s Cheddar Gruyere  

Un-Pictured Banana


If you’re eating a zero point soup for lunch, then you can afford to eat some full fat cheese! I weighed out 14 g of full fat Cheddar Gruyere cheese to put on top of this soup and it was really really good! 




Apple, 10 g 70% Cocoa Dark Chocolate

1 tsp Raw Unsweetened Coconut


I melted the chocolate in the microwave, then drizzled it on the apple. I follow weightwatchers4me on Instagram. She does some amazing things with a little chocolate drizzle. Check out her website at drizzlemeskinny.




Un-Pictured Walnuts and Raisins




Mixed Greens, Dried Cherries, Gorgonzola

Walnuts, Beets, Balsamic Vinaigrette

Chicken Breast with Avocado Cream Sauce 

12 PPV

This Avocado Cream Sauce is from yesterday’s post. I’d like to play with this a little more, but it tasted pretty good on this chicken!
