I have a bad habit of thinking I’m doing ok and I AM making better choices, but I swear if I eat before tracking, I will go over my points every time! Sadly, today was no different. And I didn’t even have breakfast… yeah slept in until almost 10 am this morning, so that made it easy to skip. Thankful I didn’t have those added points, but sleeping in so late is really abnormal for me!
For lunch, I had Chick Fil A – I chose a salad instead of the normal sandwich and fries with Chick Fil A sauce. Seriously, do you know how many points are in that yummy Chick Fil A sauce?? Six… SIX freaking points for a little bitty thing of sauce… of which I usually have two of… with fries of course. OMG! No wonder I’m a fatty! LOL Anyways I also only had about 1/2 the dressing – which is huge for me! The southwest chicken salad is 12 points without salad dressing. Now that includes the tortilla strips and the pepitas topping – which I did not have. So my salad was about 9 points without that extra junk. The creamy salsa dressing is 10 points for 2 ounces. I had 1/2 so in total just 14 points for lunch. Not bad considering I ate out – right?
Well for dinner we decided to go to Cracker Barrel. I know, it’s the fourth of July, but we just didn’t feel like cooking out tonight and took the lazy way out and headed to a restaurant where I don’t have to wash the dishes (yay!). I had a yummy dinner of roast beef, carrots and some smoked sausage. Ya’ll, honestly what I chose was pretty good and I stayed away from the corn and potatoes it came with… but those biscuits. Well… I couldn’t resist and had two. TWO. I’m thinking, they are smaller biscuits, kinda flat, just good ol’ country dinner biscuits. Ummm. Yeah, added to my WW app and those buggers are 5 points a piece. Geez! SMH…
Oh! I had also made some chocolate muffins using pumpkin this weekend and they were delish! I got the recipe from ItSuxToBeFat. The blog says they are 2 points a piece… but that’s not smart points… and of course I didn’t realize that until I had already eaten 2 (or maybe 3 😉 ). Yup, put them in the WW recipe calculator and they are FOUR points… LOL I swear, I’m going to get this point thing down… Thankfully I have weekly points to use up while I make some of these stupid mistakes.
So two lessons learned this weekend.
- Log food before you eat it so you can make adjustments if you need to do so.
- Make sure you are logging recipes and such using smartpoints, not the old point system.
