Mmm Rolo Heaven!

3 May
All new levels of delish!

So ok, I caved when grocery shopping and bought ice cream – before you judge me though take a look at that picture! See how teeny tiny it is? How can that be bad? *big sad pleading eyes* Well, fine, if you want to get technical it was kinda bad – bad for points and bad cause well, seriously, like there is any nutritional goodness in ice cream?? I may be delusional most of the time but even I know you can’t really justify ice cream, lol, especially Rolo ice cream!

However it was good in a couple totally awesome ways – one of those is size – it is a 1 cup portion and have you ever tried to measure out ice cream? It’s hard! It is not an easy to measure out food and therefore makes it easy to trick yourself in to eating more then you should. I truly adore pre-measured foods because then you don’t have to worry about it, you just grab-an-eat and really, who doesn’t like things to be easy? The other truly great thing about this ice cream? Well duh! The taste! It’s just like the normal Nestle Sundae Rolo ice cream you can buy in larger containers, ok, it’s not “just like” it IS the same ice cream just mini sized and man-oh-man is that goooood ice cream. 😀
I think this mini size is better then buying the larger tub cause while is was totally delish it’s not the cheapest thing out there, I managed to buy it on sale 3 for $6 (I got a skinny cow double chocolate something or other flavour and another flavoured nestle sundae) but when it’s not on sale I probably won’t buy it often cause it’ll not seem like a good deal. Or maybe I am just cheap?…Also, it’s better because you only get one serving per container so no chance to go crazy over board with the ice cream indulgence – way to save your waist! woohoo!
Today I ate:
1 Hearty Medley’s = 2 points
1 banana = 1 point
Salad Loop = 4 points
 – salad had regular lettuce and baby spinach, 2 bites of yam, 1 square of tofu, kernel corn, chick peas, mushrooms, asparagus, peas, 1/2 hard boiled egg, grated cheddar cheese, 1/2 baby potato, 1/4 cup cottage cheese, cucumber, small spoonful brown rice, bean sprouts, shredded carrot, 1 cherry tomato and 2 bites of artificial crab
1 small bowl lentil soup = 2 points
1 Eating Right turkey burger = 3 points
1 hamburger bun = 3 points
1 cheese slice = 1 point
1 Nestle Sundae Rolo = 5 points
Total points eaten = 21
I totally forgot until I was writing that list up that I ate the banana this morning, shoot. erg. So, I thought I was right smack at 20 points eaten and then bam! I am at 21…I hate when that happens – it’s so irritating! I wouldn’t of had the ice cream if I had remembered that banana cause I really wanted to just eat my normal daily points today, *big epic sigh* 😉 One flex point eaten isn’t gonna kill me but with being up last weigh in I wanted to be strict this week to ensure I lose at least a little bit…I’m not too worried yet cause (1) there is a lot of week left to make it up and (2) I have a self defence class this thursday and my first Dragon Boat Racing class this friday so least I have some activities planned 🙂

    At one of my recent WW meetings a member shared this recipe and your post made me think of it.

    Take 20 mini pretzel twists and put them on a baking sheet lined with parchament paper. Top each pretzel with a rolo. Put in oven at 350, just until the candy begins to melt. Remove from oven and top each candy with a pecan half. After about 5 minutes remove from baking sheet and let cool completely. Quick and easy WW Turtle candies.
    Each turtle is worth 1 point but because it makes so many you may want to bring some into the office to share.
