Presents In The Mail!

7 Feb

I got a parcel in the mail today, yah! Who doesn’t like getting stuff in the mail? pfft, nobody! ๐Ÿ˜› The parcel is from my parents and is filled with what on the surface looked like junk food – shocking right? But I know my mom better then that andย  when you actually read the packages all the so called junk food was actually diet/weight watchers friendly snacks. ๐Ÿ˜€ My parents rock!

I got Popchips which are chips that are popped, never fried never baked (slogan!) and are only 2 points a bag. They were yum! ๐Ÿ˜€ There are also thinsations (ritz and fudge bars), weight watchers pretzels, weight watchers hot chocolate, weight watchers mini bars in a couple different flavours. So all of the goodies are treats that will easily fit in to my food plan. It has to be said again: My parents rock! ๐Ÿ˜€

I shared my top 8 headshots with the people at work today – wanted to get opinions/feedback. I think it made the whole choosing process harder, lol. Everyone has a different opinion, the picture person A loves person B thinks makes me look psychotic. How can people not agree? eesh. And to top it off a friend was all “you asked for my opinion so I am gonna give it” and he said most of the pictures aren’t good (he blamed the angles at least, not my face) and these two pics that everyone says are amazing make me look fat (according to him), sigh. So of course, even with all the compliments I got over the pictures, those two pics in particular, all that keeps repeating in my head is what he said. Oh, I should clarify, this isn’t a friend from work he’s in a different province. Stupid boy. blarg. But! Here’s the up side! Despite his comments making me feel uncertain about what I look like and wanting some kind of comfort I did not head for the kitchen – go willpower go! Instead I headed off to my Zumba class and sweated out my anxiety – a much healthier way to deal. lol. ๐Ÿ˜€

A friend at work, ZG, brought cookies to work today. Remember how yesterday I was all “gonna be super strict this week!” – well, I forgot that in the cookie-moment and totally took a cookie. lol. I figured my home made chocolate chip cookies aren’t that bad points wise so neither would hers be. When I asked her about them she informed me she didn’t make them, they were Pillsbury…I didn’t know what that meant. lol. Turns out cookies from Pillsbury are cookies from a tube??? What the hell is that? That’s not a cookie – that processed chemical crap – fairly decent tasting crap but still…what happened to just making cookies from scratch? sigh. I don’t get this whole baking from a box/tube/container thing…and it left a bad aftertaste, yuch. So, I found this info out halfway through eating the cookie – me being me I immediately went online and found nutritional info for Pillsbury choc chip cookies and then stopped eating the cookie. It was 3 points, for a cookie that isn’t even that good! Least I found out half way thru…shrug.

So let’s see what I ate today:

29 grams Honey Bunches of Oats with Pecan Bunches = 2 points

1/2 cup 1% milk = 1 point

1 orange = 1 point

1/2 cup Maple Baked Beans = 2 points

1 piece toast = 1 point

1 Activia Yogurt = 2 points

1/2 Pillsbury choc chip cookie = 1.5 points

carrots = 0 points

1 whole wheat wrap = 2 points

3 pepperoni slices = 2 points

1 turkey slice = 0 points

mixed veggies = 0 points

30 grams shredded cheese = 2 points

1 package popchips = 2 points

2 pieces bread = 2 points

1 tbls light peanut butter = 2 points

1 weight watchers choco mint flavoured mini bar = 1 point

Total points eaten = 23.5

Exercise Points earned = 3

Over by 0.5 points – it was either be over by half a point or under,ย I opted for over. shrug. I figure half a point won’t kill me or screw me on the scales. lol.

So now it is night time, I am crazed tired but was enjoying watching Rocky so much I stayed up, lol. I do this every monday – I am tired from Zumba and yet I never go to bed early, I stay up later then my body wants and then tuesday morning sucks on a whole new level then what it needs to. sigh. Maybe one monday I will learn? heh, don’t hold your breath! ๐Ÿ˜›
