Things I Love Thursday: All Kinds of Randoms!

Things I Love Thursday 9-17

Fast Food Nutrition Calories Plus Calculator for Weight Loss and Calorie Watchers App


I have been using this app FOREVER and I love it. It has both PointsPlus values and points from the old system for just about every restaurant out there—many more than Weight Watchers has the information for in their app. It’s well worth the $2.99! If you count calories, that information is in there too.


Wendy’s Side Salad

Garden Side Salad

Yesterday I was running errands and lunch time rolled around so I decided to stop at Wendy’s for a quick lunch. I never go to Wendy’s, but after a quick look at the App mentioned above, I decided I could eat a healthy meal there for relatively low Points.

I ordered the Ultimate Grilled Chicken Sandwich (which was really good too), and a side salad. It was the best side salad ever—not that it was anything special, but it was made of fresh greens, tomatoes, and shaved asiago cheese. I ordered BBQ ranch and avoided the croutons. Ordering it this way made the salad approximately 160 calories of deliciousness!


My First Gwynnie Bee Box

Gwynnie Bee Subscription Box 1

Okay, signing up for a 30-day free trial with Gwynnie Bee was totally spontaneous…but I’m glad I did it. I just might continue my subscription. I really like the outfit that I’m wearing above—but it’s totally and completely outside of my comfort zone. And that’s kind of why I should do it. I need to gain more confidence and feel good about myself in the clothes that I’m wearing. I’d also love to add a little bit of fashion to the blog and this would give me the opportunity! It would be fun to share my experience attempting to gain confidence.

Let’s be honest, I can’t afford really nice clothes that flatter my plus size body (that is hopefully shrinking)—so being able to try out up to 21 pieces per month for only $35 seems kind of worth it (if I go with 1 piece at a time). I love that I can purchase an item if I really like it—I could buy this dress for $44 and it’s really good quality…as in better than anything I own!

I would add a t-shirt or something beneath because, well, my arms. I’m thinking I could add a pair of leggings with this and it’d be good for a cool fall day—leggings would be new for me too…but I figure I’m wearing too-tight yoga pants an awful lot, so what’s really the difference between that and leggings? And with leggings I’d be wearing a dress that would cover my legs better.


I Will Write Typography Print

I Will Write Typography Print Motivational by thedreamygiraffe

I’m thinking I want one of these in my new office area! I just love the quote and it’s so true about me. I just wish there was a color scheme available that will go with my theme…but I do need some pops of color and the colorfulness is certainly “me”. I found this at thedreamygiraffe Etsy Shop.


Serta 3” Gel Memory Foam Mattress Topper

We bought a Sleep Number bed a few years ago and it’s been a huge disappointment. There are separate air chambers for each of us so that we can choose our own Sleep Numbers—sounds good in theory but it creates this dip in the bed and we both end up with horrible aches and pains. from basically sleeping at an angle all the time.

Hubby returned home from his work trip this week with a Serta 3” Gel-Memory Foam Mattress Topper (Amazon affiliate link), per a recommendation from a co-worker. Sleep has been amazing ever since we added this topper! We don’t wake up with aches and pains anymore. It’s so soft and cushy—I just love it.


So how is that for a random list of Things I Love? What are you loving this week?


  1. I'm eating a Wendy's side salad right now! Haha. My go-to on-the-go lunch is a Wendy's side salad with a sour cream and chive baked potato. So filling and satisfying!

  2. Oh I love that dress and you look beautiful in it!! I wouldn't add a t-shirt at all...until it gets colder out :)

  3. My girls love leggings. I used to make them wear tights with their dresses in the cooler months. Then one of my friends told me her girls do leggings, socks, and boots. Works great! That would look cute with the outfit, I'm sure. :)

  4. The dress is cute...can't really see the top because of the jacket but instead of a t-shirt you could just do a longish sweater in a solid color for fall too.
