    Hey! I'm Beth - a 27 year old foodie living and working in the Washington, DC area who has lost almost 90 pounds through Weight Watchers.

So I just signed up for Twitter but do not know what I am doing at all. I just had a co-worker give me a tutorial of what @ RT # etc means but honestly don’t have a clue. Come find me on there @bethsjourneytt. If you follow me, you can leave a comment on the KIND BAR GIVEAWAY post saying you’re following me for an extra entry! Ends in a few hours, so hurry on up!

Lunch today was super quick and simple, but delicious. I guess I was really ravenous before I started eating so I snapped the pictures super quick and they’re a little blurry. My apologies!

I had a cucumber from the farmer’s market cut up on top of the end of a bag of spinach, with some feta crumbled on top.

The cucumber on here was out of this world! I can’t believe how much more delicious they taste fresh from a farm rather than from the grocery store. What a difference! The main part of my lunch was leftover Sweet Potato Whole Wheat Gnocchi with Almond Butter Sauce. I threw in 1/2 cup of black beans for good measure, too.

Afterwards, I was craving something sweet, so I had these:

They were SO good! Tasted just like candy but a little less guilty? 130 calories, no fat, 1 gram of fiber, so the whole package had 2 points. Totally worth it in my opinion.

In other exciting news, I have Monday off from work!! I got some comp time from working the conference a few weekends ago, and I had to use the time up with 30 days, so Monday is the day! We actually have some fun plans for the day on Monday so I don’t just sit around and waste the day, but where we’re going is only an hour drive from DC so it’s just a day trip. I’m meeting up with some girlfriends after work tonight and its actually super nice outside so I think we might grab some drinks in the sun! Happy Friday!
