Lying to myself

Have you ever looked at the nutritional information on something and knew it was WAY too good to be true - yet still wanted to calculate the points and eat it without guilt? Me too. But I couldn't today.

Lets rewind to yesterday. We went to Stew Leonards, which is a grocery store unlike any other you could imagine - its a huge weird specialty place. They make most of the stuff they sell, mostly right in each store. They make these AMAZING rice cakes from scratch right in front of you. They come out in a machine similar to the thingy that shoots out tennis balls. Very cool.

Anywho, the make ones that are chocolate drizzled. The NI on them indicate they would be one point for two of them. Well last night the 'drizzler' on duty must have been have been hitting the bottle because they weren't drizzled - they were completely covered in chocolate. I ate 3 so far, which isn't bad for a 24 hour period. As much as my hand wanted to write 2 for 1 point in my tracker, I had to guesstimate each one as two. Which stinks. But I had to think - who am I cheating? Myself - and that's what got me to my current weight.

Ok - rant over. Thanks for staying with me. I had a great breakfast, an egg in a basket that got a little messy in the pan, and some pomegranate seeds. Love those things - too bad they are only in season a short time!

I had to have a lower point dinner so I could fit some chocolate covered rice cakes in my day. So i had a chicken sausage burger on a sandwich thin with some 2 % cheese, asparagus and TJ's kick ass one point chips and salsa. That's a lot of food for 8 points!

If you haven't sees this awesome post about Sue, please check it out. She is the shit, and really deserves it. I know I and am new to the blog world, but I am awed by what an amazing community it is and how supportive people are. Its a great feeling.
And with that - I'm out! Have a great night.

  1. I hate being responsible and counting things as more points. But, it's definitely for the best! Hope today goes well!
