Day 62 Weekend Edition

I love Saturdays. I wish there were more of them in a week.

Sorry this post is so late. We were out in the Boonies at a friend’s house who is in Megan’s department. It was Splendiferous Soups, Captivating Chilis & Delectable Dessert Night (but more on that later.) So  I had this great intention of getting up early, go for a run, eat some oatmeal, and enjoy the morning. Instead I woke up at noon. I really can’t complain because I really needed the sleep. So anyways, we did our Thanksgiving shopping today! We are so stoked! It’s going to be an awesome week.

Lunch: So since I got up so late, I didn’t have lunch until around 2:30 which is always a little weird but aw well. I made a turkey and cheese sandwich with some chips. (It’s hard to measure chips at the bottom of the bag when it’s just broken chips. Does anyone else have that same issue?) It was 8 points. Awesome.

Dinner: Like I said earlier we had a pot luck with some folks from Megan’s department. Megan made the WW Tuscan Sausage and Bean soup which is always awesome. Christian, who is probably the most eligible bachelor in Tallahassee because he is one of the best cooks I know, made this awesome Butternut Squash Curry Soup. How awesome you ask? Having thirds good. There were also other goodies such as chips, Yoda shaped sugar cookies, s’mores, and baklava (but I ran away from that.) We sat out by the fire pit under the full moon and it was so cold that you would see your breath. It finally felt like Fall. Then we played Guesstures which is always a blast. So points wise, I feel pretty confident about how I did. Potlucks can be a quicksand of calories especially with continuous snacking. After some math and some speculation, I figured I ate about 20 points which is a lot, but a heck of a lot better than last time I was approached with a buffet of deliciousness.

So I got to about 28 points today which like I said is a bit of speculation (which can be a slippery slope so I don’t do that too often) but either way, I had 24 daily points left and 24 weekly points left and I know it wasn’t that bad. Tomorrow is weigh in day and I have a really good feeling about it. See ya tomorrow.

  1. Hey! It’s been a while since I have been able to read your blog, what with my dead modem an all, sounds like you’re doing great and good on ya for not going crazy at the potluck. 🙂 I had a thought for measuring the chips at the bottom of the bag…I weigh and measure my food, so instead of counting out chips weigh them on a kitchen scale, that way you don’t have to figure out if that broken piece of chip counts as one chip or part of one, the weight is a better indicator. Easy-peasy! 🙂

  2. The answer to chips is food scale. I always weight mine anyway; it’s just easier to reach in the bag and drop chips on the scale until you get to 1 oz. than to sit there and try to count, especially once you get to the broken ones!
