So.....I said NO to cake yesterday! Actually it wasn't cake, it was pumpkin pie, which in my books, is worse! I LOVE pumpkin pie like you wouldn't believe. But I said no. I did have a 1/2 cup of low fat frozen yogurt though for 2 points so that satisfied my sweet craving and I felt like I was enjoying dessert just like everyone else. I even got out the measuring cup while everyone was scarfing down their pie and ice cream and measured myself out a 1/2 cup. Has anyone tried the Scotsburn Low Fat Chocolate Frozen Yogurt? YUM! Seriously you can't even tell it's low fat yogurt. It is really rich and creamy. I'm going to scout out my grocery store to see what other flavors it comes in. I usually try not to keep that stuff in the house because I seriously can't help myself. But I think this Christmas Challenge is really going to hold me accountable so I might decide to test my will power just a little and buy a tub of frozen yogurt to stick in the freezer. I know I can do it if I just put my mind to it. MMmm it comes in blueberry cheesecake....
Speaking of pumpkin pie though, I'm hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year and I would love to make a homemade pumpkin pie. Has anyone tried out any low fat recipes for pumpkin pie? I don't think I've ever made a pie in my life so it's about time! I just checked the points value for store bought regular pumpkin pie and it is 8 points for 1/8 of a 9 inch pie! I'm SO glad I said no last night!! You wouldn't think it would be so much since pumpkin is so good for you. I guess it the crust and all the things that you add to the pumpkin. Let me know ladies if you have any low fat pumpkin pie ideas :)
In other news Scott and I went to the travel agency yesterday to start planning a vacation for next year. We were thinking about going down south to Dominican Republic or Mexico but we've been down there before on our honeymoon and were thinking about trying something a little different so we came up with...............PARIS! I don't know if I've ever been so excited. We are thinking of going to Paris for 4 days and London for 3. Anyone ever been before and have any pointers? I've been doing tons of research online and I have a few travel books on Europe that I've been fishing through. I think it would be such an amazing getaway for us. It seems like such a romantic place.
Well that's it for me today ladies. Remember to sign up Christmas Challenge with either Randi or I! Just think of how hot we're going to look come Christmas!
