I did not sleep well at all last night. This was the first time that I have slept alone in our house! 6 AM came early, but I was kind of glad it did because I was tossing and turning all night.
For breakfast, I had 1/2 slice of homemade toast with PB and a banana along with 1 cup of 1% milk for 4.5 points.
For my first break, I made a green smoothie out of 1 cup of spinach, 1 medium banana, 1 peach and 1/2 cup of light vanilla yogurt for 4 points. 3 servings of fruits and veggies, how’s that for a super smoothie?
It kind of gave me heartburn though- weird!
I was really hungry by lunch time for some reason. I had leftover Sassy Pumpkin soup for 2 points.
I also had grilled cheese alla sandwich thin for 2 points.
I was craving something sweet, so I had a serving of low fat brownie fudge ice cream for 3 points.
This stuff was delicious!
I was craving a little something sweet on my last break, so I had a Laffy Taffy for .5 point.
Hubby got home around 3:30- it was so nice to see him! But I still had 1 hour left to work. That was one long hour- let me tell you!
After I got done working, we headed into the office to pick up my Wii! It was finally in!
Now from here on out I am going to teach you the repercussions of not planning ahead…well I shouldn’t say not planning ahead, because I DID plan ahead, I just didn’t stick to my plan.
We had planned to go to Applebee’s because we had a $10 gift card. The perfect choice, right? I actually chose that over Red Lobster because I knew I could order a WW entrée. Well my plans derailed when we saw the 2 for $20 deal that included an appetizer- and we were STARVING!
So we had the Spinach Artichoke Dip- which I am pretty sure I ate half of. I was repulsed when I looked up the points when I got home. I spent 18 points on half of that dip- I cannot believe that- what is IN that stuff!?
And so then I ordered the Fiesta Lime Chicken. Now for this, I felt like I made an ok choice. I immediately scraped off all of the cheese and ate only the chicken breast. I did not eat the rice. I am overestimating this for any leftover cheese that may have been on it, etc, as 10 points.
And to top it off, the $10 gift card only had .92 cents on it! We must have used it before and forgot about it!
After that, hubby and I did a little shopping. We got a new monitor for my work computer- so that will be so nice! It’s a wider and bigger screen that should be better on the eyes, too!
Before we went home- we stopped for dessert. We always buy the mini blizzards at Dairy Queen when we go- which isn’t that often! So that’s a change in the right direction- better than getting other sizes. I had the mini fresh silk pie blizzard and scraped off the whipped cream. This was 9 points. Pretty high- but very delicious. Ice cream twice in one day- whew. Better watch that!
I am having a hard time with feeling guilty over what I ate. Looking back, I never would have ordered what I did if I had known the points values beforehand. But then again, I don’t want to be attaching feelings, negative or not, to foods. It’s not a good thing to do. Food is food. It is not the enemy and it is not evil. I am not a bad person for eating foods, for one night, that are a little more calorie laden than I should be eating right now. I do not need to feel guilty for overindulging this one night. Or do I? Is it ok to indulge every once in a while? Give me your opinions.
I do know that I will do much better tomorrow. I used some weekly points, but not all of them. So ultimately, I am still on track!
How do you deal with guilty feelings about food?
I want to thank Kristi for the Versatile blogger award- thanks for making me feel special.
