Day 5....and yes i cheated

Why oh why did I think I could go to the movies with my friend? The movie was fine, I went and bought a bottle of water and cheetos from the drugstore and snuck them in. Cheetos are like 6 points for the small bag. I had that many left so that balanced me out for the day. But then after the movie we are catching up (since I had not seen this friend in at least 8 or 9 months) and decide to go to denny's. I said i am not going to get anything but a drink. Hot chocolate (2points,x2=4pts) Take that out of my weekly total. And then it happen.

A) I have the weight watchers moblie in my hand. It has dennys menu on it, points for each product. I look and then said well i just won't look and order anyway.

B.) I got the 3 smokin mini burgers with fries. I ate maybe 1/4 of the frys. I ate all 3 burgers. ALL 3 REALLY DELICIOUS BURGERS! They have toasted buns and thick bacon with onion straws and bbq sauce. I tell myself I will look them up the next day and add them. Ready to see? Are you sure? It was THE most calorie item on the menu!!!!! What the hell was I thinking? Coming out to ...........49 points for 3 small burgers. 49points? So I have to kick up my working out this week to make up for that 1 moment of weakness. i have 28.5 weekly total left and 8 activity total. That isn't enough to cover my mistake. i did have 3.5 from yesterday left over but that only puts me at 40 points I still need an extra 9 to cover it.

Wish me the best!

Other news I made the soup without cauliflower and I didn't have a pot big enough to fit the whole thing so I had to split it into 2 pots to make it.  It was good soup. I added mushrooms because I love mushrooms and I also precooked the garlic and onions so that they would cook all the way thru. I don't like uncooked onions in my soup.

I tried the mini meatballs and the broth ran out before they where done cooking. I think the next time I will add a little more to them.They where just okay. I have had better. 1st off I used fresh parsley I think dried would have been better. And i need to shop the onions into smaller pieces. I did a rough chop since they made me cry. All in all it was a good night of cooking. And the best part was the fact that it cost me only $13 for all the veggies that I put in including fresh thyme and parsley. I love our local produce market.

No worrie,s we all slip once in a while! Concentrate on staying on track the rest of the week, and resist the urge to check on your weight everyday - unless you are playing with a Wii fit, but you don't have to do the body test every day either. Losing weight is part of my resolutions (again) for the New Year, and I have been doing 30 minutes of Wii Fit every morning. Fun way to move more :)
