a Muffin Top funny

Someone on the Canadian Weight Watcher's site posted a link to a You Tube video about the expression "Muffin Top." It's actually a Lifesaver's commercial. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out HERE. It's cute.

I had a good wi today: being down 1.5 pounds. I wasn't all that good today though as I attended a pizza party at lunch (Pizza Hut has huge points, btw) AND I didn't exercise! oops. I'm super tired for some reason and had to rush dd to a baseball game after dinner. I will try to be better tomorrow though we are going to another party (a potluck). *sigh* June is bru-tal on the healthy eating. I'll have to sneak looks at salad recipes tomorrow at work so I can bring something point friendly at least.

I'm closing with a picture (*actually, it ended up on top of the post-see above- I'm too sleepy to move it and I'm sure you don't care anyway*) of a Thai Cold Spring Roll. I made a "version" of this tonight. Mine wasn't quite so pretty, but still tasty. I'll try to perfect mine to share. I learned how to roll the rice paper at a Thai restaurant cooking class with a friend. They're actually really easy and the rice paper is only 1 point. It's REALLY good with avocado (continuing with my obsession with the green, high fat/ healthy fat veggie). Tonight, I filled mine with shredded carrot, chopped lettuce, green onion, a tiny bit of scrambled egg (cause I made it for the kids for dinner- lol. It actually wasn't bad), avocado, rice noodles, bean sprouts and sweet and sour sauce. It's a very fresh, summery dish. If mine looked more professional, I'd take them to the potluck tomorrow. :)

mmmmm the spring roll sounds GREAT. I love avocados too!
WAY TO GO on the WI.
I'm crossing my fingers the damage isn't to bad tomorrow for me.
Keep up the good work!

Yaay for a happy weigh-in! Well done!

Good luck with your parties and such! Maybe you can counter the damage by making good choices on the other days.

Thanks girls! I wasn't so "good" at the party. I wasn't "evil" but I wasn't "good." I ate slowly, took small portions, but probably had too much food anyway cause there was a lot of interesting stuff to try. kwim?

I think I should have brought a veggie platter instead of my salad and nibbled on that. Next time! :) I'm going to take Cammy's advice and be good for the rest of the week

...except I have a work related breakfast and a department lunch out tomorrow. lol. But, seriously, I'm going to be good at both as much as possible, and then good for the rest of the week...June IS almost over.
