date night

Family Time & Date Night Saturday

*Got in an early 5 mile run with the gals – always the highlight of my Saturday mornings. 😉 +8

post run – Chocolate ISO 100 Protein and a bowl of oatmeal with banana – 6

Dropped by my friends baby shower to say Hi and drop off a gift before heading to IHop with my mom and kids for Brunch.

I had the Simple & Fit French Toast. I love that more and more restaurants are getting on board with having healthy options on their menus! I still got regular eggs (not a huge fan of egg substitute) but I only ate half the french toast – thanks to my son for grabbing the other half off my plate and eating it. 😉  One of the resources I use to find Dining Out points is  Dotti’s Food Score app and it said this dish was -13pts+ I counted it as -9 since I didn’t eat all the french toast.

Then my mom and I split a stuffed french toast – my FAV thing to eat at IHop!

According to Dotti’s app its 12.5 points.  7pts+


the whole gang in one booth 😉


afternoon snack of leftover birthday cookie while trying to organize my new calendar for the week/month –  4


we’re dog-sitting our friend Jim’s cairn terrier, Sienna, for the weekend and the kids have been having fun with her……..

She goes crazy over a laser light and its hilarious to watch her try to attack it!!

and of course the girls had to put bows and flowers in her hair! 😉

she’s not spoilt at all can ya tell?! 😉 Although her dad says she’s gonna need therapy from being at our house now!!


1/2 cup of my fav ice cream  Blue Bell – 5

The girls and I went to our friend Debbi’s farewell for her family since they are moving next Saturday. She is in our Saturday running group it has been so awesome to get to know her over the years through running and church. I am really going to miss her! :(

*Was so cool to hear the Houston Texans WON today!!!! I didn’t get to watch the game – my hubby was working and we don’t have TV but I googled the score several times and watched just a few minutes of the last quarter at the farewell party. So proud of our little Texas team!!! 😉


After I got back home my hubby and I went out on a date night to BJ’s. I realized it has been a month since we’ve gotten to do a date night by ourselves!

we shared the avocado egg rolls appetizer.

I had the Chicken Lettuce Wraps. SO yummy!!


Then we decided we would splurge and get dessert – which we RARELY ever get appetizer, dinner and dessert – but tonight we were in the mood.  We got the mini pazookie trio because we both like different cookies. He loves the peanut butter one.

I had the mini chocolate chunk one and a bite out of the other cookies. It was SOOOOO good!!!!  We had a bite out of the white chocolate macadamia nut one but couldn’t eat it all. Before dessert we were satisfied but after the dessert we were then so FULL.

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
