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.
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
