Week 7, Day 4

Well today was an okay day.  I was trying to finish up the business taxes for mine and my hubby's business.  I really don't like this time of the year except for the refund part, when we get one.  But figuring out the receipts, mileage deductions, etc when my husband has receipts all over the house is quite frustrating.  But I think I finally got it figured out so I can submit the tax return tomorrow.  Wheew!!  Now onto watching American Idol results, I can't believe they are cutting that many people in one time, the show is so different this year.  But I am liking it.  Especially Kasey and Pia. 

Today I went to get a few things at the store and I am always checking the health food section or the special product section at the grocery store for new BFC approved items and today I found something new.  Not sure if anyone has seen this before or tried, but just in case I wanted to share. : )

Steaz Iced Teaz sweetened with Stevia (comes in Peach Mango or Raspberry)  Really tasty!!

0 g of sugar and only sweetened with stevia  BFC Approved

What I ate today:

Breakfast:  Uncle Sam's with unsweetened coconut milk, coffee and probiotic

Lunch:  Spinach salad with fat free cheese, fat free balsamic dressing, bacon bits, a few sunflower seeds, rotisserie chicken and three pieces of raw broccoli

Dinner:  My hubby cooked his version of tacos (Honduran style)  I can have a few and stick under the carb/sugar counts so I ate this even though I try to not have carbs at night to much lately.  3 small tacos (that were made of corn tortilla and rotisserie chicken) topped with cabbage, a tomato sauce (very small amount-only about 1 tbsp.), white cheese

Meal is 2.5 g sugar and 2 serving carbs
My totals for the day (copied from my profile on

  1. We just got out taxes back and glad we got something back this year too. I am enjoying american idol this year too and amazed at how great there are. I thought I would miss Simon but I really like Steven Tyler.

  2. Those tacos look so yummy!!! How nice of your hubby to fix dinner!!! I'm glad you got your taxes done, what a weight off your shoulders.

  3. I tried Steaz once, but I don't care for Stevia. I drink Pelagrine water when I want some fizz (Costco). I used to eat Uncle Sam's cereal, with Unsweetened Almond Milk, and reading this makes me want to start eating it again. Such a great diversity of talent this year on American Idol. Jennifer Lopez new song and video was great. The camera loves her, that's for sure. I just got my tax returns from 2009, (late filing)and with the returns I bought my Volkswagen. Haven't pulled this years together yet, but my Tax Guy is the best and works his magic each time. Have a great week!

  4. Taxes blah :-( thats all I have to say about that.
    I am loving Steven Tyler on Idol too. He is funny, but I really do miss Simon.
    I have never tried Steaz, but have heard of it. Now that I see it is 0/0 I will have to find it at the store when I go today.
    Those look like Taquitos to me and I must say - YUMMY they look.
    Have a great day :-)

  5. Yea I miss Simon too a little bit. It seems like the judges are only giving good comments and nothing is critiqued which isn't good for the ones that need a little work, or at least that is what I think.

    Yea they are pretty much taquitos. :) yum!

    I just submitted taxes today, so whewww all done. Now I can enjoy the weekend stress free hopefully.

  6. Hey Lindsay!!! We finished our taxes last night too. I was the one dragging my feet with my business taxes...uuggh!! Just hate it but wehn the return comes in, I am getting new ceramic tile in my kitchen & foyer. Woo hoo!!! WE were going to replace it a couple yrs ago but hubby lost his job so we put it on hold. I picked out a beautiful mocha tile & IM having a dark chocolate grout with it. We have a big dog & he has big paws...Your dinner looks delish! How lucky you are that your hubby made dinner. LOVE ethnic food!!
    Well, have a great weekend girl!!

  7. I just now saw the comment. We are going to use some of our tax return money to lay hardwood floor in place of carpet in one downstairs room. It has had a plywood floor in there for almost a 1 and a half. We were going to do it forever ago, but my hubby's job went down drastically and we had to hold off. I am so looking forward to it, because we have had a sheet blocking the room forever! :)
