It is a Pinterest Kind of Day!

Thank you to Pinterest! I am certain this was created with a child in mind, but I completely enjoyed it for breakfast!

Roll out a piece of (1PPV) bread to flatten, spread with 1 T Better n Peanut Butter (1 PPV), roll around a 1/2 banana and slice it.
Drizzle with honey (1 PPV)
Total = 3 PPV.

I found a recipe for chocolate covered peanut butter bananas, (some kinda crazy PB Banana craving today!) and it sounded yummy and fun! I didnt have any chocolate chips, like the original recipe calls for, but I knew I had a few cubes of almond bark, so I pulled that out of the pantry to figure the points. 1 cube is 7 PPV!

So I made the recipe anyway just to see how many melted yummies would go into one treat. I'm thinking these babies are at least 3 PPV a piece!

Maybe I will just make Mike eat them all.......or maybe I eat carrots and celery all day and walk 10 miles......hmmmmmmm.

This is my "You think I'm kiddin, but I'm not" face.

I finally tried out my new Frother today! I guess I didn't read the directions real well the first time!

Then I did a little more reading......

It's just like Starbucks Misto! Which is traditionally called (at all other coffee shops), a Cafe Au Lait. Half coffee, half steamed milk.

I had Donut House Cinnamon Roll, with a teaspoon of sugar free caramel syrup, and my milk. Creamy and delicious!

I have decided its a total Pinterest day. I found this great little ring idea over the weekend, and I just happen to have some of that wire.

While holding the wire, I almost poked my eye out. Protective eye wear is most likely recommended.

Here is my attempt at it.....

Tess will like it, she's the one that pinned it. :)

After playing around on Pinterest all morning, I decided in addition to Bootcamp tonight, I would get in some cardio, so I headed to the treadmill. I have been thinking a lot about my cardio workouts and my heart rate and what I need to do to "Up" my game a bit. I know the answer is running. I hate it. I really do. It hurts my boobs and knees. Today I decided to run at least .25 mile without stopping. Nice and steady at 4.0 MPH. I'm not sure what happened, but I passed .25, then I passed .50, then I just kept running. At the very end I went to 5.0 MPH to increase my heart rate a little more. I think the new sports bras helped the whole boob situation, and maybe the last few pounds off helped the knee situation, but it felt great! I ran my first mile since Highschool!


Morningstar Black Bean Burger. (3 PPV)

These make the best salad!

I think I could eat some sort of a Taco Salad every single day......

Bootcamp kicked my butt tonight! And did I mention that I ran a mile today? Whoo whoo!!

Also from Pinterest, dinner. Dinner is a new experiment. The Chicken Recipe calls for mayo, but the revised recipe replaces the mayo with nonfat Greek Yogurt. I was actually disappointed in these. I thought it would turn out crispy, and it didn't, and it was way too salty. I did like the yogurt idea and would try these again with much less salt than in the recipe. :)

I have never grilled pineapple, so I tried that tonight. I wish I would have grilled chicken and bell peppers to go with it though.....or vanilla ice cream!!! Not grilled of course, just right out of the carton.

Dinner was.....okay......

Refresh...I can eat 26 points a day.
I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise.
I have an allowance of 49 points that I can dip into if I chose.
I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.

The food I ate today and it's PPV.

Breakfast = 3
Lunch = 6
Snack = 9
Dinner = 6

Total = 24

Activity Points Earned Today = 7
Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 0
How many glasses of water I drank today = 10

  1. I would love to follow you on Pinterest! Do you have a link? We have grilled pineapple with grilled chicken but my favorite way to eat grilled pineapple is with a little drizzle of Nutella(sp) it is SO good! You did a great job on that ring...even with 1 eye;)

    1. Try this?

    2. I seem to have a hard time replying sometimes. And I'm not real bright, as you might have already figured out, but hopefully that will get you there. I can follow you back! :)

    3. Found You!! I am a computer dummy so I sure won't judge!! I would think that with all the time I spend (waste) on Pinterest that my boards would be more interesting but they are not:( Be prepared to be put to sleep!
