all things considered

Not a bad day, all things considered. Jack (my 18 mo) got his fingers smashed in the sliding glass door just before lunch. Emma (the 5 yo) needed to be at a birthday party. It was burritos for lunch so all the kids were standing in the kitchen telling me what they wanted on their burrito. I didn't eat spoonfuls of cheese to cope, though I was really guzzling my diet Coke.

Then we went to friends' for pizza. The fellow WW friend had a sick friend so plans changed. I did well staying out of the pizza, but I did get a little crazy with the chips and dip. I could tell I was really low on points after I had eaten my salad and sliver of pizza. Isn't that weird how we "know" where we are kind of? I was really thinking I could have a nice little dessert later at home. Then I had a chip. And another. And a lot. Oh, well. Did pretty well today all things considered.

And this nonfat yogurt parfait thing is turning into my favorite breakfast. It really fills me up. And I never thought I could do plain nonfat yogurt. But since 1 cup is only 2 points, I thought I'd try it. Love it! Jack's fingers are fine, BTW!

Seems like you're able to eat a lot of different things at throughout the day and still keep the points in check. I eat one meal and I end up having to use my weekly points!

ps thanks for your "motherly" advice.
