After all this time…

11 Aug

…I screwed up my counting, argh! That is so annoying! I had a light babybell cheese at lunch time and wasn’t sure how many points it was (btw, it’s 1 point). Even though I wrote the cheese down in my food diary when I was tallying up before dinner time so I knew what I could eat I didn’t notice the missing point info so I made dinner and had a killer dessert and only after it was all eaten did I remember the stupid cheese! Sooooo that means today I went one over. I had been doing soooo good! I know it’s only one point so it won’t really mess me up or anything, I mean, I never use my flex points, but still, it’s the principle! lol

The dessert, omg, I was so excited! We had a visitor at work today and when she comes she always brings food! Usually pizza but her visit was shorter this time so she brought in, ready for this?…Cookies by George!! I loooove George’s cookies, Mmm! Mmm! Mmm! I decided to bring one home with me and only eat it if I had enough points left over after dinner. The nutritional info for Cookies by George is lame, it only has base info for their simplest cookie, they say they are looking to update the info but whatever, I don’t need it next month, I needed it today! I guess it goes along with my theory that if the company doesn’t tell what their nutritional info is then it’s probably so bad you don’t want to eat it. Sad, but good rule to live by. shrug.

In case you are wondering, the nutritional info shows that one of their plain/basic cookies is 5 points – that’s practically an entire meal worth of points! But a George cookie I figured would be worth it. 🙂 The cookie wasn’t really worth it, sad. It was a bit dry and the chocolate could have been better. That is the first time I have ever been unhappy with one of their cookies – I wonder if it’s cause the cookie really wasn’t as good as normal or if it’s cause overly sweet stuff doesn’t taste the same to me anymore? Could be either I guess. A bonus to not eating the cookie till after dinner was that the napkin the cookie was wrapped in soaked up a bunch of grease, ew!, like blotting a slice of pizza, saved me some calories at least. lol  😀

I have been introduced to a new (-ish) fruit today; yellow plums. I didn’t know plums were yellow, I have only seen the dark purple colour. My landlord was plucking them off his plum tree (that I wasn’t even aware was a plum tree, lol) and gave me two huge bowls full! My roomie doesn’t like plums so it’s up to me to figure out what to do with them…suggestions? I don’t know if they can be eaten normally, some fruit isn’t good eaten as is but is great for baking etc. My brother used to make plum jam from the plums on his plum tree and I s’pose I could google how to do that, but isn’t jam really hard to make? My landlady suggested boiling then straining the fruit and using it with chicken and fish dishes…huh? I don’t want to eat it without cooking or baking it in some way cause it’s from the backyard and not a supermarket; what if it hasn’t been properly sprayed with pesticides etc to protect the fruit from bugs an stuff? There could be something in or on the fruit that is microscopic an I don’t wanna eat that! ew. Case you didn’t clue in I prefer my fruit an veggies from stores and not from yards. Some people find this weird but it’s just the way I am. I prefer how the produce tastes when it’s from a store instead of a yard; and I feel more secure in the health of the produce when it’s from a store, it’s been regulated an stuff. Just go with it, k?

So today I ate:

2 Weetabix biscuits = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 1/2 cups strawberries = 1 point

1 banana = 2 points

1/4 cup couscou with corn = 3 points

1 cup Red Pepper and Tomato soup = 2 points

1 babybell light cheese = 1 point

1 kiwi = 1 point

1 Eating Right Hamburger patty = 4 points

1 Kraft cheese slice = 1 point

grilled veggies = 0 points

1 milk chocolate chocolate chip cookie = 5 points

Total points eaten is…23…big sigh…:P Ok, I am over it, I will no longer obsess about that one point…well, I might obsess a bit but I won’t do it here where you have to read it. lol
