142.8…Book Club Booyah!

I had an extreme chocolate craving on the way to my hair appointment yesterday and found this sample of Skinny Cow Dreamy Clusters in my pantry. I got the sample at BlogHer and hadn’t tried it yet.

They are chocolate covered crispy, caramel-y goodness! I really liked them! They come 5 to a bag and are 120 calories for all of them. They are small but after 3 I felt satisfied and decided to save the other 2 for another day.

Back to my hair…..I hate it. Boo! I went a lot darker with the color and I don’t like it. The hairdresser couldn’t have been nicer and I really enjoyed chatting with her. I contacted her and let her know how I felt and I’m going to go back in on Tuesday for highlights. Hopefully it will get fixed! I’ll have to have someone take a picture of me to show you guys.

I got home just in time to set up for my book club. I cut up the Rice Krispies Treats that I made yesterday and added some Trader Joe’s Cheesecake Brownie Bites to the platter.

I didn’t try the brownie bites (restraint!) so I can’t tell you whether they are good or not. :)

I put out a platter of cheese, crackers, almonds and grapes.

Pita chips, carrots and hummus:

I had a couple of crackers with cheese, some carrots and hummus and some almonds. I also had two glasses of wine. I was proud of my restraint. Normally I attack food like there’s no tomorrow but I held back. I ate enough to feel satisfied. Booyah!

This morning I ate the last sample of Quaker’s Oatmeal Squares that I received at BlogHer.

I added some Fiber One Honey Squares to bulk it up a bit and ate both of them with unsweetened almond milk. I also had a bowl of delicious strawberries.

I took the kids to school and dropped my car off for service. I piled all my crap into their loaner car and went to Zumba.

Lunch was a turkey & Swiss cheese sandwich on whole wheat as well as carrots & red bell pepper with hummus.

I picked up my daughter at school  and took her to her “Dog Smart” class. She did really well today! She announced afterwards that she wasn’t afraid of dogs anymore and doesn’t have to go to class anymore. We’ll see what happens next week. :)

We picked up my son and made our way home. I ate a Kellogg’s Fiber Plus bar on the way.

I need to pick up my car from being serviced and go to the kids’ open house at the school tonight. It will be a leftovers dinner kind of night!

Have you tried the new Skinny Cow candies?

When was the last time you had a bad cut/color? What did you do?


  1. i haven't tried the skinny cow candies, but they sound good! love the look of all your book club snacks.

  2. how the heck did you lose 4 lbs so fast !? <very jealous

    Haha! I think when I got back from my cruise I was a bit heavier due to all the rich, salty foods I was eating. Once I started drinking a ton of water and eating healthy foods my weight evened out.

  4. yes! isn't 'water weight' just awesome? good going, though!

  5. It sounds like you had quite the busy day, but were still able to sneak in some nutritious eats along the way. How did you like the Kellogg's FiberPlus(R) bar?

  7. I'm glad you enjoyed your Kellogg's FiberPlus(R), but sad you ran out! I'll see if I can send some coupons your way.

    That would be very sweet of you! The bars are great to keep in my purse for those mid afternoon snack attacks! :)

  10. Melissa, I totally agree! I always have a stash of Kellogg's FiberPlus(R) bars or baggies of the cereal in my purse for when hunger strikes. It never hurts to be prepared.
