You may be asking. Well, let me first say that I am a chocaholic. No really, I have no control over my cravings for chocolate. It's so bad that, when no chocolate was available, I have been known to search the cupboards for a chocolate chip that may have slipped out of a bag. It's a sickness, for sure. So on Monday, when I was so desperately trying to stick to my meal plan, Rod showed up in the living room with potato chips. And my will power cowered to my chocolate beast. I had a few potato chips with some chocolate covered raisins. Now, raisins are healthy, and there's so little chocolate on them. So I searched WW online site, and discovered that there is the same point value for raisins and chocolate covered raisins. Can I hear a big WAHOO!!! Did I fail Day One??? No, I simply slipped.
So, yesterday was a new day with new "determination". (Notice how I stuck my word in there -- Pretty tricky, huh) And I did it!!! I was victorious. (Notice my "Rocky" stance as I dance). Had my oatmeal for breakfast with tomato juice and 1% milk. For lunch, Kristin fixed egg salad and I had it with no bread, but added some grapes. And last night for dinner we had beans and weenies made with turkey hot dogs. And to be a good girl and get in my vegetables, I made coleslaw. And it was good. But the evening is my difficult time. So when Rod asked what I wanted for my snack, I didn't say chips --- I didn't say chocolate -- I said sugar free jello with whipped cream. I love jello, and don't taste any difference in the sugar free. And with just a little whipped cream, WW considers it FREE!!!
Tonight is meatloaf night. I'm making it with ground turkey instead of beef. And as side dishes, I'm thinking a skinnied up sweet potato casserole, with some brussel sprouts. Haven't decided on a snack yet, but I have some Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches, so that may be my choice. Wish me luck.
