Day 2

Well here I am on Day 2, Saturday is always a tough one for me.  By the time I get myself organized and get some household chores done, then it is usually around lunch time when I head out to get some grocery shopping done etc.

We stopped to put some gas in the car and the hubby comes out with a bottle of Diet Pepsi and a Kit Kat.  I don;t think he even realises that you can buy fuel without getting snacks at the same time.  For years my children thought that a can of drink and a bag of M&Ms came with the gas!!!!!!!

Anyway he offered to share and so I had one finger of his Kit Kat.  While we are going through the car wash I look at my WW app and a whole bar i.e. 4 fingers is 6 points.  I remember back in the day before the Points Plus program a Kit Kat was 4 points!!!!!  So 1 finger was 1 1/2 points, but 1/2 points don’t exist anymore so that was 2 points!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The fact that we normally leave to do our errands on Saturday around lunchtime, means I don’ t ever really eat a proper lunch on Saturday and today we went to Costco (a smorgasbord of sampling!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)  Even so I did pretty good in there.  They certainly know it is a good way to sell product.  A couple of weeks ago I was in there with my hubby and when we got home and started putting things away, I realised that we had purchased 5 things purely based on the fact that they had samples to taste.  I would probably not have even thought about them otherwise!!!  Sometimes that can be good other times not so much!

Today they had some little cocktail meatballs in a very yummy sauce.  I had one and on my WW calculator it worked out at 1 Points+.  They also had some very tasty almonds.  They had 4 in their little sampling cup with I figured would probably weigh about 1/2 oz totally 2 Points+!!!!  Wow 3 points gone on a couple of nibbles in Costco plus my 2 Points for my Kit Kat before we went in.

Late morning before we went out I did have a Yoghurt and a Banana, so that was a healthy choice!!!  As I said Saturday’s are not a good one for me.

Plus side of shopping is the walking aspect.  When I got home I noticed that my Fitbit had logged over 5,000 steps thus far.  Badge for me today!

But when we got back I did fix a very yummy and nutritious supper for us.
