Today has been a much better OP day. I have really tried to make good choices and not let things get out of hand. The kids and I went with Emma's kindergarten teacher to a shelter downtown tonight. We took dinner down there. Of course, I had made a pan of pasta big enough for an army. My boys were bummed because I didn't let them get seconds like they would have at home. Since I cooked, I could estimate how much I was eating...always a bonus.

On the way home I had to stop and pick up a prescription. I knew they were all still hungry, so I grabbed two packs of those Dreyer's Dibs Ice Cream Bites. I just had 5...and that was still 2 points. If I'd realized how much that was going to be, I would have waited and had one of my WW treats after the kids all went to bed. Now I have that icky, too sweet feeling in my mouth. I'm over by 2 points today, but I have been running my legs off all day. According to my pedometer, I've earned those 2 points back!

So here's what I've eaten today. Last night I did eat some of my moose munch bar from my Easter basket. I added it in to my daily plan manager. I really think I am done eating for the day. Maybe some more water and a little diet Coke?
