Scale Junkie

I'm an admitted scale junkie. So of course I hopped on this morning to give myself a preview of this upcoming Tuesday's weigh in to see if I'm on target...


FORTY-NINE POINT TWO POUNDS. Yes, I am thiiiiiiiiiissssss close to 50 pounds. I'm almost certain I can get there by Tuesday. 

In other random news yesterday I tried one of the Kraft Sizzling Salads kit, Southwestern flavor. My greens included Romaine, Baby Spinach, and Kale tossed in the Barbecue Ranch Dressing. Other veggies included three baby bell peppers, scallions and cucumber, and of course 4 ounces of chicken breast cooked in the yummy Zesty Fajita sauce. For the entire salad... 7 points plus! It kept me so full I had 16 points left for the day at 8pm. Oops! Don't worry, I was up till 1 am and used most of those points before midnight, after my late night run. ;)


And we finally were able to sneak into a new shop, well new to us. It's called Heavenly Olive Oils & Vinegar's. Oh my goodness. There are so many choices. We taste tested several combinations. I am so excited to go back there on pay day and pick out some new oils and vinegar's to cook with. The vanilla balsamic...yummy. The honey ginger, oh I could dig into some chicken with that on it. We combined it with toasted sesame oil, it was okay, I think a lighter ratio of sesame oil to ginger would have tasted better. I'm excited to throw some strawberry balsamic on a summer fruit salad. The pomegranate balsamic (which I already own) was mixed with chipotle olive sweet & a bit of spice. I tried the lemon balsamic with cilantro & roasted onion olive oil...the combinations are endless!!!! I can totally see a lot of these combo's working for our smoked turkey. Nom Nom Nom.

Of course once I get a few products in my hands I will be showing off some new foods. :)


Happy Friday everyone! Have a great weekend.
