You may know by now that I puffy heart Chobani.  Like a lot.  It has just the right amount of tang, and I always buy the plain when I make a parfait so that the fruit and the granola balance with the yogurt and it’s not overly sweet.  But, I have to say, I am frugal when it comes to the grocery store, and my eyes wandered to this yogurt:

I am sure I’ve seen this brand of yogurt before, but what caught my eye was that it had more protein than sugar in a serving, and since I’ve been on my 30 day protein challenge, I picked this one.  I was out of my homemade granola and since I was picking up stuff for my bosses birthday at the store, I ended up picking up Honey Bunches of Oats Dark Chocolate Protein Granola – never saw this one before, but for a 1/2 cup serving, there was 10 grams of protein!

And to round out my breakfast, I had a hard boiled egg and a tangerine on the side – breakfast came in at 449 calories, 54 carbs, 4.3 fiber, 11 fat and 33 grams of protein.

So I really liked the Siggi’s yogurt – even though I got the mixed berry flavor, it still was super tangy and it seemed to be a bit thicker than Chobani. 

I went to the gym at lunch – while it was in the upper 60s it was super stormy all day.  I did a quick 2 miles while watching The Chew.

And the gym . . . completely mine!  I should have done a circuit between all the empty machines!

After my workout I went to the store to pick up my bosses cake and ended up picking up a new knife to use at work.  All the knives at work are so dull and cheap that no amount of sharpening is going to bring them back.  It was only $14, but it’s amazing what a good knife can do!  Um, turns out I bought both my bosses salads at work and I made chopped salads out of them.  Are they spoiled or what??!!

I found a lone spaghetti squash in my pantry, not sure how long it’s been in there, but I decided to microwave it before and then let it cool and threw it in a plastic bag and hoped for the best.  It was fine, so I ended up having leftover chili on top of the squash for a really filling lunch… with 42 grams of protein!

After work I got more steps in.  I may or may not have had to take a poop so I had to get off, take care of business and jump back on – 2.75 miles in total.

Hannah texted me earlier in the day asking if her friend Mel and her son Carver could sleep over last night because they needed a place to stay.  I of course said yes.   I had declared Thursday leftover night, but as I was driving home I was trying to think what I had on hand to make for an actual dinner.  Well, nachos was the first thing that jumped out at me.  Nothing particularly healthy about this meal, but it was quick and easy and we just ate it right off the cookie sheet and ate our nachos on napkins, you know, because we are klassy like that. Open-mouthed smile

I ate about 8 chips just like this one – we all still loved the freshness of the tomatillo and English cucumber salsa.

After dinner the 3 year old got his p.j.s on – it was nearly impossible for me to take a picture of him because he’s a boy and keeps moving, but check out his snowman jammies!

I kicked butt on my steps again yesterday – check it out:

I still have until April 20 to do my final weigh in, and even though my 90/10 21 day detox ends on Sunday, I am going to continue to keep on going until my final weigh in.  I still have 1.8 to lose before then, and I’ll have my third WI on Monday.  I do have to say that eating a minimum of 30 grams of protein per meal is helping me not snack at all.  I am so full and satisfied I don’t even think about eating in between meals – best non-scale victory!

Happy Friday – hopefully the weekend will be nice.  I think the worst of the weather went north of us last night, but my weather app was all stormy!  I loved that it was 66 degrees at 9 p.m.!

Make it a great day, and have a nice weekend!
