Monday Monday

My weekend went by pretty quick. We were so busy all weekend that we didn't have much time to relax and enjoy ourselves.

Friday I was in another town for work and I met my Dad there for supper. We went out to a greasy diner type place but I ordered a salad and a grilled chicken and veggie wrap so I did pretty well there. Friday night was Scott's ball game so we went to watch. Had 2 glasses of wine after the game and 1 cooler. More points than I wanted to use but oh well. I was starving by the time we left the game and was CRAVING greasy cheesy pizza but I suggested Subway instead. Got a 6 inch turkey sub (although I could have easily polished off a footlong) and stuck with diet Pepsi. YAY me!

Saturday I had a pretty low point day. I was busy getting ready for a family reunion for Scott's family so I didn't have much time to munch. Ended up skipping lunch altogether in favor of making 30 homemade hamburgers. Supper was a BBQ at our place. Had potato salad (not much), 1 hot dog, a handful of chips and a bunch of veggies, and a few crackers snuck in there too. But I think over all I did pretty good for the day. I also made the Angel Lush Cake that I saw on Angie's blog. I topped it with blueberries instead of strawberries and it was SOOO good. Oh and I made the angel food cake instead of using a store bought one. So mine was only 2 layers but it was much bigger. Love this cake. It's absolutely perfect for a Summer BBQ type event because it's very light and yummy. Won't weigh you down. Overall, I could have done SO much worse at the BBQ. I kept my portions small and stopped eating when I was getting full. HUGE accomplishment for me. I did indulge in a few glasses of wine though. Probably more than I should have.

Sunday is usually my downfall but this was the best Sunday by far and my worst indiscretion was a chocolate bar. I know, still not stellar but my typical Sunday involves chocolate and chips and Delicsio Pizza and ice cream (I crave the sweets after a night of a little too much wine) So I definitely improved this weekend. Scott even asked if he should go to the store for more treats and I said no way and made a yogurt/milk/fat free chocolate pudding/fat free whipped cream milkshake which was just as good and half the points! Yum!

I'm anxiously awaiting for Randi to post today! Congrats on your Tri Randi! Can't wait to hear all about it.
