Yesterday went really well. I got in all my water/fruit/dairy and even played in my pool for a little while. Somewhere around 9 o'clock last night Jeremy and I needed to run to the store down the street, and while we were there he decided that he had a sweet tooth. (Can I just say that my hubby always has a sweet tooth?) He grabbed a fried apple pie and I zoned in on the fried chocolate pies. Okay, now I love me some fried foods and I love me some chocolate and when you put the two together I'm in honkey tonk heaven. So I got it, but not before I swooned at the nutritional facts on the back. I knew I had six points left and I had achieved all of my GH points for the day. (minus a milk serving - but you HAVE to drink some milk with fried chocolate pie anyways) And when I got home I realized that my slide points thingie wouldn't calculate the points because it was over the charts! I got on Roni's site and used her little points calculator that she can no longer call a "points" calculator. It was a whopping 11.8 points! :o) So I ate half of it and used 2 WP's for my milk. I zapped it for a few in the microwave and it was delicious - totally worth the 6 points. And since I only hate half of it I didn't feel like I was going to go into diabetic shock.
So it's all gravy. I had my chocolate fix, stayed OP, and have hopefully headed off that "whoa is me I'm on a diet I can't have no fun" feeling. The bad thing is that I encouraged Jeremy to eat the other half of my pie so it wouldn't be there to tempt me. This is after he ate his pie. I'm a bad influence.
It's going to be pretty busy busy in Mandy Land for the next few weeks. We're going camping on July 5th and won't be back until the night of the 7th. Then July 8th we're starting VBS at our church and I'm the storyteller, so I've got to get all my props together and my backdrops painted and my peeps organized before I leave for camping. I'm nervous about my eating habits during this period b/c we'll eat out for all of our meals while we're away (I know it's not real camping if you don't cook you own food, but we're taking baby steps) and then we'll have kiddie meals everynight at VBS. Maybe I can get a hold of the menu in advanced and plan ahead. Being the youth minister has its perks! ;o)
So, I suppose I should stop procrastinating and get int the middle of my planning. I'm blessed to have a job that allows me to not only blog and comment with my favorite cyber buddies, but also allows me to work on church stuff while on the clock!
Have a Great OP Day!
