Can you lost some of your fave sbux drinks with their pp+ values?

No problem anon! I’ve actually already done this before, so hello copy and paste! Well, most of it, there is a new iced drink addition. lol

Hot Drinks:

-Skinny Latte (extra hott) - This will either be caramel or cinnamon dolce.

  • Venti - 4pp
  • Grande - 3pp
  • Tall - 2pp

-Hazelnut Latte nonfat milk

  • Venti - 6pp
  • Grande - 5pp
  • Tall - 4pp

I was also doing caramel flan lattes, but realized the caramel skinny’s are just about the same flavor at this point, so stuck to the skinny’s.

Cold Drinks:

-Light Caramel Frappuccino w/ the drizzle (I never give up my drizzle, and don’t worry about extra points for it, but you can always ask for w/o)

-Light Cinnamon Dolce Frappuccino

  • Venti - 5pp
  • Grande - 4pp
  • Tall- 3pp

Iced Drinks (just recently trying to get myself to enjoy these) -

-Skinny Iced Caramel Latte Iced

  • Venti - 3pp
  • Grande - 2pp

*I do not recommend the hazelnut flavor. It was very bland.

Scientists arm cells with tiny lasers

In a feat of miniaturization that makes your Apple Watch look lame, scientists have implanted tiny lasers within living cells. The lasers can be used to track individual cells for days and weeks, the researchers report this week in Nano Letters. A laser requires two things: a material that can be stimulated in some way to produce light and a “resonant cavity” that will ring with light waves of particular wavelengths much as an organ pipe will ring with sound waves of distinct frequencies.

This was breakfast, and my plan for lunch!

After work I am going over to my friend’s for dinner at their new house. They are cooking, and while I know they are cooking Michelle friendly I have no idea how to count the points. So, including my leftover weeklies I will have roughly 40pp to work with. I should be a-okay.

Also, as for lunch tracking there is a possibility that either the “whip yogurt” or “graham crackers” will not get eaten. Not sure which I will be craving later so I went ahead and tracked both so all I have to do it take one off.

Here is the dinner menu in general:

  • Smoked Chicken
  • Pork Tenderloin
  • French Fries (more for Brad than me)
  • Salad
  • Veggies, including corn on the cob for Brad - but I’m so having corn too!

It’s official! All vacations are over, and it’s time to get back on the weight loss wagon. First thing = dropping the vacation gains, and getting back into the 200′s.

I am off to a good start. I wasn’t 100% on plan these last 4 days following my Tybee/Savannah vacation, but clearly I did something right to drop almost 5 ½ pounds.


On a side note: Happiness comes in the form of chocolate!

After this rough morning, I decided i deserved a treat. No worries, it was tracked and fit into my day perfectly.

FYI - if you are thinking about grabbing one of these stinkers be warned it is 7PP!
