Super Simple And Shopping

Hey All! First I want to say thanks to all who entered my Larabar giveaway. It was so cool to see all you "lurkers" come out to comment! I am so glad to be able to share my favorite Larabar flavors and I wish I could send them to all of you! Unfortunately, there can only be one winner this time. I won't make you scroll all the way til the end! Random.org says the winner is..... Dee from My Journey! Yay, Dee! Finally, a win for the Canadians!!! Dee, send me your address and I'll get these babies out to you. Okay, let's get to the food...


Today was a day of simple foods. No fuss. Stress free. Mostly made by others, which is extremely simple for me! I started off with a 30 min. run on the treadmill, then a breakfast of blue balls. Heheh. I know that's not nice. It was another beautious bowl of blue (better, right?) for 3 POINTS...


Then it was out the door to pick up Gram for a day of mall shopping. Yippee! Sounds like fun, right? Wrong. I hate shopping. I'm not sure why. I used to love it, but now it seems like torture. I think the husband brainwashes me while I am sleeping. He must repeat over and over in my ear, you hate shopping. shopping is torture. spending money is baaaaad. So now I am brainwashed and the joy of shopping has been sucked out of me. I digress. Food. Oh,yeah. Gram and I stopped the super shopping for a quick lunch at Subway. I had the turkey on wheat with veggies, no cheese, no condiments and a bag o' apples for 6 POINTS...

When I got home, it was snack time! Uh, I mean drink time! Another Chocolate Strawberry Crackshake for 2 POINTS...


Dinner was from good old Trader Joe's...


Here's the facts ( and the ingredients aren't too "scary" either!)... click to enlarge...



I had 1 c. of the Mandarin Orange Chicken with sauce (added another POINT), 1 c. whole wheat coucous and broccoli for 9 POINTS...

I ended the night with 2 of these for 2 POINTS...


I was going to do some strength training tonight, but honestly, I have no strength for strength training tonight. It's early to bed for me ! That 81 year old super shopper whipped my butt today! Guess I'm no whipper snapper after all ;)
Nite everyone!

Hi Marisa,

Melissa said...

Oh man, I guess since I'm laying off chocolate for a month it's my turn to come drool in your blog!

That sub looks so good!!

Kelly said...

LOL at blue balls. :)

I can actually read the ingredient list for the chicken. Sounds so good. I don't understand why we don't have a Trader Joe's around here. It's not fair! Maybe Whole Foods will have something.

Angie All The Way said...

Yayyy for Dee and a Canadian winner! :)

Thanks for the giveaway Marisa!

You are so funny because I bet my husband does the exact same thing!

Miz said...

I love that you skipped the weights!

seriously.

when your bod tells you what it needs it so smart to listen to it as you will grow (muscle) and lose (fat) so much more swiftly that way.

hope you slept well...

I am so going to get that Mandarin Chicken this weekend at TJ's it looks so yummy and I've been craving chinese food!

I personally hate shopping, I think due to not being able to shop in all of the stores that I want to. I'm hoping when I get closer to goal weight, I will absolutely love it :D

Enz said...

I so wish we had a Trader Joes in Toronto!

Orange it Lovely said...

Oh thank you! That TJ dish is one of my FAVES and I was always afraid to pick it up due to the high points! 9 pts is not bad at all!!!
Love your blog.. yes I'm a lurker lol

Me, Only Better said...

katecooks said...

Danica's Daily said...

I was cracking up at your blue balls - I need to remember that the next time I get me some blue balls!

I LOVE that TJ"s Orange Chicken - it tastes just like the real deal!

theskinnyplate said...

Mmmm.... tasty orange chicken. I don't even remember the last time I got myself some orange chicken.

I just found that chicken at TJ's this weekend and made it tonight for my kids. Snuck a few pieces into the veggies I cooked and man, is that stuff great! YUM. Good thing the kids liked it so I couldn't eat the rest of the bag!
