Weekend Oops

26 Mar

Okay, you guys. I know one of the purposes of this blog is to keep me accountable. So, that means I get to post about how well I am doing…but that I also have to share when I’m not doing so well

Let’s just go ahead and say it.

This weekend was a bust.

I “tried” but at the end of the weekend (Friday, Saturday, Sunday) I had successfully gone over my point allowance EVERY day. In total, I used 16.5 extra points. Now, I know you have your weekly “bonus” points and all…for days you want indulge a little but I know you are all thinking it (and so am I)…YIKES!

You see what happened was….

We ate out a lot.

So for lunch on Friday, Matt & I were craving one of our favorite little pizza places for lunch near work. It was Friday…it was payday…Why not? I knew it would be high in points but I chose healthy snacks and planned to eat a low-point dinner. So off for pizza we went – We didn’t order our usual garlic knots & I took about 3 sips of my soda before deciding it wasn’t really worth it (it comes with the lunch special). Still, with those cautious choices, pizza is not “cheap” (I talk about WW+ points like they are money – get on board). In any case, I chose to eat it. It was delicious. It was worth it… until dinner came around.

Friday night we had a delicious dinner with family at Longhorn’s. Maybe I am just a looney, but I thought that the baked parmesan crusted chicken breast would be an okay choice (I was choosing blindly, y’all). Why, you ask? Because I know that when we make baked chicken breast at home and we use a Kraft Fresh Take packet (that ALSO includes bread crumbs & parmesan cheese), it “costs” me about 6 points. Well this little gem of a chicken breast (and I am not going to lie – it was AMAZING), took 13 points. THIRTEEN! & that wasn’t even the whole entrée because it came with not one but TWO chicken breasts. Fortunately, I cannot think of a single instance where I would need to eat two chicken breasts all to myself so I didn’t have to count 26 points for chicken. Luckily, I had veggies as my side & I peeled off the cheese topping… or I would have really been sorry. & thank goodness I only took a small taste of the dessert we ordered. It was truly calling my name but I knew it couldn’t be pretty. Did you know that their little dessert sampler (that is supposed to serve two but in our case it served about 3 each) “costs” 46 points? Wowweyy!

Then, we were out of town for the weekend so we ate out a lot…some more.

Between dinner & breakfast…and two unplanned and unfortunate trips to Taco Bell (where I did choose as wise as you could considering)… I just went overboard. Oh. And since we are being honest… did you know that a SMALL frosty from Wendy’s is 8 points? EIGHT! That’s, like, an entire meal! I did choose veggies as sides when I could and picked entrees I thought were healthier than what I would typically choose (i.e. an omelet over eggs benedict). HOWEVER, restaurants really know how to trick you into eating worse than you should have, am I right?

Oh, and did I mentioned that I only ate 1/4 of a biscuit? You know biscuits, the other love of my life –Yeah, those. One fourth. Half of a half. As I whined a bit over the biscuit I was so close to enjoying (but didn’t), Matt whispered “Nothing tastes as good as being fit feels” (gotta love Pinterest, am I right?). I promptly responded “That’s not true. This biscuit tastes as good. This biscuit tastes BETTER.”

So there you have it. I said it out loud. It’s out in the open.

& how do I feel about it, you ask?

First, gross. I know I didn’t go THAT crazy (I mean, it could have been worse, right?), but after calculating my points and knowing I wasn’t eating as healthy as I have been the last week & a half or so, I felt just…gross. Like, in a “did you notice how tight my pants are?” way.

& secondly, I feel like I just want to eat whatever I want again! How is that possible, right? That I simultaneously feel gross AND feel like I want to eat foods that make me feel gross. When we got home last night, it took serious self-control not revert to my old ways… and eat a small salad for dinner instead. And in case you were wondering if I have any desire to go to the gym (even though I have only had one day of rest this weekend & still managed to work out the other two), the answer would be a big, fat NOPE.

If it weren’t for the fact that the whole world is counting on me, I might would just eat ice-cream for dinner and go to sleep at 7:30 PM tonight. So thanks to you all for reading along as I share my eating habits from the weekend, as icky as they may be.

Here’s to never eating a frosty again! Kidding.

    I’m pretty sure Frosties are made out of lard. Chocolate flavored lard.

    And I’m pretty sure cheesecake tastes better than being skinny feels. At least while I’m eating it. =)
