Bad for the m&m's to begin with, but very good for making myself stick to my points.:D

Snack

Dinner
Oatmeal

Exercise
30 minutes exercise bike
3 games of league bowling

Oatmeal again for dinner. I really haven't been feeling that well lately. Actually, I think I'm just tired by the time I get home from work, which is usually after 9 these days, and I don't feel like eating. Much less making dinner. So oatmeal is quick and filling. Part of me thinks it can't be good eating it so much, but oh well, only twice now. And hey, I had grilled cheese for breakfast. I can just pretend like the meals were reversed, yeah.

43.5 points -- why? why? why????? I did good all week and then blew it last night (I'm finding I binge a lot on Thursdays). I don't understand why I sabotage myself like that. The whole time I was cooking dinner I was telling myself "I shouldn't do this" but then I sat down and ate the whole thing. I knew I would but I didn't care. It's very frustrating!!

Woo Hoo...only one over!

Scuttle- There's nothing bad about eating oatmeal!! It's one of the best things you can eat...it's good for you, it's filling, it's yummy!! I have it every AM...one packet Baked Apple and one packet regular...it's too sweet to have just the Baked Apple. And actually, if you're not eating til after 8:00 or so, it's better to eat something lighter, instead of a dinner meal! :D

Liz- Pirate's Booty is a crunchy snack. I've never actually tried it, I've had Smart Puffs, which are like cheez doodles, but better. Pirate's Booty is along to same lines. Do you have a Trader Joe's around you?? It's a great store!!

Rabbit- How did you manage to not eat anything...go to bed early?! :lol: I could not do that!! I probably would've tried to just have water and maybe something low points, like egg beaters or something.

Rabbit
02-07-2002, 12:20 PM
So that's what pirates booty is! Is it low fat? I did not answer that question about it when someone asked me because I didn't have any idea what they were talking about.:) I didn't see that stuff. I did buy some chocolate covered raisins (oh no!) and chocolate covered soy nuts (no one would eat those - I haven't tried them yet).

Lauren - I had an investment club meeting and was gone for atleast an hour, maybe a little longer and that helped. I drank a lot of water and I kept myself busy cross stitching while I watched tv. I thought about eating something low point but I was bound & determined that I was going to require more of myself! ;)

Scuttle - I'm with Lauren, eating oatmeal is very good for you! We all need to eat more grains like that.

Raisin Bran cereal with skim milk
Morning Star breakfast patty

Lunch
Hummus rollup from Trader Joe's
Pirate's Booty
Mini ice cream sandwich

Dinner
Red beans and rice

No exercise today, I've not been feeling well. Pirate's Booty is like LBH said, sort of like a cross between rice cakes and cheetos. My friends claim it's like cardboard. They sell it at Trader Joe's, but also at my local Safeway grocery store. Oh, and there's also Veggie Booty, which is the same puffed rice and corn, but flavored with salt and bits of kale and spinach that give it a green coloring. Veggie Booty is very much an acquired taste, but I like it now. It's pretty good for vitamins. And both are low fat. If you're on WW, a serving is 2 points, I believe.

As an aside, my mom tried to find a source of Pirate Booty on the web once, to see if she could order. I don't recommend doing a web search for Pirate Booty. It returned some... ahem, interesting pages. ;)

Boy I woke up on the wrong side of the bed today. I have a major case of the grumps. It could be PMS (AF's coming on Tuesday) or I'm still mad at myself for eating two giant bowls of mac & cheese last night. Oh well, that craving is satisfied for awhile!!

No exercise again. Tomorrow, though. I'm feeling better, though I cancelled a date tonight to recuperate. Plus I think in addition to being sick, I'm depressed, not over anything in particular just in general. Maybe it's because spring taunted me earlier with nice weather for a hike, but now it's all cold again.
