Mid Week Mittwoch

Yesterday I got in my 34/30 jeans! They were rather snug but I was able to wear them. I can't help but wonder if they were mis-tagged at the factory but I'll take the little victories. Otherwise I really don't feel any different. Still a lumpy fat chick..

OtoH my unofficial weigh-in this morning was 190.9 lbs, so never underestimate the power of exercise and staying within your daily point range. =)

MorningStar Farms

MorningStar Farms Chipotle Black Bean Veggie Burger

Chipotle Black Bean Burger

We purchased a box at Costco.. it comes as 12 pack and each patty is about 120g or as it says on the box "1/4 pound size!" Whatever.. All I know is each one is 5 points plus so I heated one up and put a spoonful of Costco salsa (it's the only one we have left that didn't say "use within 7 days of opening" otherwise I'd have used the good stuff..)

I like morningstar farms veggie burgers.. I don't know why we thought we might not like these. I do. They are just a littlest bit 'spicy' (that's got to be the chipotle seasoning people) but I'm thinking if I had some fresh avacado or gaucamole, that would have gone well with it.. or maybe a spicier, hotter salsa.

It had a bit of chargrilled flavoring to the edge, I suppose to make it more "authentic" or something. Personally I don't want my veggie burger to taste like it was cooked with meat in it. When I want a real cheeseburger I'll eat a real cheeseburger.. when I want a veggie burger, I want a veggie burger.

Tonight I wanted a veggie burger. It was good!

Mango Chicken yum!

Sean & I were out running errands today and hit up the Baja Fresh in Atwater Village after our Costco run.. I ended up getting this yummy salad:

Mango Chipotle Chicken Salad
Tortilla shell filled with Romaine lettuce, chicken, avocado, Cotija cheese, mango salsa, and a chipotle glaze. Served with chipotle vinaigrette.

Hmmm.. I didn't notice any cheese.. maybe they forgot?? As it is I didn't need the cheese, nor the tortilla shell or the tortilla chips they hand out for no reason at all.

According to my weight watcher points plus tracker, the tortilla shell (that I didn't eat) was 12 points plus! I'm so glad I left it behind! The salad itself was pretty yummy. Rather than pouring that oily dressing on it, I added some pico de gallo from the salsa bar (the thing they have so you can dip the chips they give you). Between the salsa and the mango salsa it was just enough sweet and spicy. No need for salad dressing.

The points plus for the salad alone was 7 points plus so I would definitely order this again assuming I'm out & about near Costco and needing food.

I went to Rite Aid to get some eye drops from my new optometrist (hopefully this one will work out & Sean will want to see him too). While I was killing time I tried out the blood pressure thingy they got there.. You know the ones you see in places like Target or your average drugstore.

I don't know if this one is calibrated correctly but it's the lowest I've ever tested. I have a pretty low average for blood pressure normally.. but this was a nice surprise. Maybe it's the Weight Watchers but who knows?

End of Weeek 23

little gain this week..

13 June 2011: 191.8 lbs
06 June 2011: 191.3 lbs

The mistakes made this week are not exercising like we were doing in Orlando.. or not doing the "Walk it Out" (just haven't been in the mood so we need to change that)

I also think some of my food choices weren't the best. When I eat things that aren't the best for me I usually opt for healthy sides.. for example if I can have a salad or fresh fruit rather than fries I will. Last Thursday I ate a late dinner from a food truck... split a lemon grass chicken and a pork banh mis as well had a taco (that had 2 tortillas on it) Sunday I had half a side of french fries with a buffalo chicken sandwich I've been craving off and on.. I did remove the top bun and had it with no blue cheese but the chicken itself (being breaded) was NOT the thing to have.. nor the fries. I usually ask for a salad instead of fries but yesterday for some reason I didn't bother. I need to remember to bother and ask.
