Empty Cupboards!

26 Aug

You will notice farther down in my food list for the day I ate 63 grams of whole wheat pasta instead of 85 grams. This was not some great attempt to lower my points for dinner and still be full, this was because I ran out of healthy pasta…completely! The only pasta I now have is in the Sidekicks packages…you know, the really unhealthy kind. lol.

When digging out my last remaining bit of pasta I noticed the absence of food in the cupboard…now, I am not out of everything but I am out of a lot of things. No more soup, no more pasta, no more veggies…no more of most things. Oops. I went grocery shopping last weekend so I am not sure exactly how this happened, shrug, doesn’t really matter how it happened tho, just that it happened. lol.

I however did find something totally yummy and amazing in my treat drawer…Hershey’s Oh Henry Cookies…yup, cookies! Sooooooooo good! 😀


I had 5 points left after dinner and wasn’t sure what to eat to use them up, I was wandering around the kitchen racking my brain when I remembered I have a cookie drawer. I don’t go in it very often anymore, sad, 😛 so I didn’t remember what was in it and wasn’t this finding a good one?! 😀 I mean come on, it’s a chocolate bar turned in to a cookie and I can eat 2 for only 3 points…that’s less then those Maple Cookies I had. In an attempt to keep them from going soft (unlike the maple cookies that become oh so soft) I put them in a plastic container so here’s hoping it works! I eat these things so slowly now, only 2 a day and how many are in that package anyways? Who needs that many cookies? Why can’t they sell cookies in say, a half size package? Some of us don’t need to buy food for an entire family here, eesh. And that was quite the ramble…sorry ’bout that!

So here I am, happily full with chocolate, trying to figure out what to make for lunch tomorrow…I don’t think I actually have anything to take for lunch…hmmm, oh wait! I think there was a can of beans in there…there we go, beans on toast it is! Crisis averted…must go grocery shopping soon…

For today I ate:

2 Weetabix = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 1/2 cup strawberries = 1 point

1 cup grapes = 1 point

1 Extreme Pita (grilled chicken) = 4 points

tzatziki sauce = 1 point

carrots = 0 points

63 grams whole wheat pasta = 4 points

1/4 cup Alfredo Roasted Tomato sauce = 2 points

grilled veggies = 0 points

1 cup blueberries = 1 point

1 cup 1% milk = 2 points

2 Hershey’s Oh Henry cookies = 3 points

Total points used = 22 , wOOt! 😀 Yet another day where I have managed to eat all my points, awesome-ness. Looks like I have managed to get back on the wagon which I am very glad about, and!, I was sitting in a different area of the office today and was offered various treats and saying no was easy, finally! The ease of saying No that I had managed to get and then lose is back again, phew. I guess if you just stick with it long enough the healthier choices become easier and easier to make. Easy is good! lol
