tuesday's food

I really had good intentions for today. I mean I even took a shower, washed my hair AND shaved my legs. In a mama's world that is ambition!

I had a good day planned. It started to go awry when I realzed we had no more turkey for me to make a sandwich for lunch. (Kelli snuck that from the fridge yesterday). So I had cottage cheese and a ton of broccoli. Than I ate much more popcorn than I intended.

I was still doing OK until dinner. I planned on a salad, but the pasta I made for the kids just looked REALLY good. So I shared dinner with Jack.

This afternoon and evening have been all about avoiding stress eating. I'm having one of *those* days with my 3 year old. I'd forgotten how someone so little can push my buttons soooooo much.

So, here goes my first attempt at posting what I ate today. I did get in all my water today and have been running all day, too. It's the start of my week. I just wanted to have a low point day to help me rid myself of the 2 pounds of chocolate I picked up on Sunday afternoon. I couldn't weigh in today so I've got a couple of days to hopefully get back down to 166.6.

What a day! And I still have to deal with piano lessons and bed time! Wish me luck!

WW Chocolate Swirl cookies? They sounds so great! Where can you get them at and how many points are they per cookie?
Great job posting today, I really find that posting your menu will help you to stay accountable! Keep up the great work!

Carolyn, I get the cookies at my WW meeting place. They are new in the past couple of months. It's a little pouch (like 100 calorie pack) and the whole thing is 2 points.

They are really good...like a chocolate teddy graham with a little icing swirl on top!
