A new start to a new day!

Well I know someone noticed I didn't blog again yesterday afternoon. I'll admit, I was bad. Eating out is a major problem for me. I need to learn to stick to my plan. Sitting at a mexican food restaurant and not eating chips and salsa is like going to a candy store and not buying candy. So I know I can't allow myself to eat at mexican food restaurants until I can control myself. So I fell off plan at lunch, ate the chips...a chicken taco, half my enchilada, rice and beans. Now granted before I wouldn't have left without eating everything on my plate. Leaving food on my plate was a major plus yesterday. (It was probably the chips ;) Then at dinner we went to Ryans....a buffet... HELLO!!! Not to keen on their veggies so I had a lot of meat and some mashed potatoes. Stuck to 1 1/2 plates. Luckily they are tiny and had some banana pudding for dessert. So I am going to say I used my flex points for the week. The rest of the week should be ok for me now. No more plans to eat out.

Today I am doing excellent. I have already put in my points for the rest of the day. With those in, I still have 5 pts left. I made some yummy WW Rocky Road Brownies, 3 pts. Going to take half of the batch to my moms, it makes 24 semi-small squares. Enough to get a chocolate fix though ;)
So this is whats on my tracker today...

1 cup cheerios with 1/2 cup 1% milk
1 cup romaine salad with 2 tbsp of Newmans Own Sesame Ginger Dressing (the kind that is on the asian salad from McD's)
1 cup seedless grapes
1 Rocky Road Brownie
1 serving of my moms Gumbo with 1 cup rice
1 cup Watermelon (dessert at moms)
5 pts left for the day on maybe another brownie and some milk... we'll see!

I know I do not drink all of my milk. I am going to try and work on that over the next couple of weeks. I have been getting my water in for the most part. Something else I need to slowly work on. Haven't had a diet pepsi yet today. Did have 2 glasses of decaf tea and I am drinking a glass of water as I type! So I'm getting there. I weighed myself this morning because I forgot yesterday. I have gained 1.2 lbs since my last WI at the end of April but I now have a starting weight for my new challenge. Ok enough of the weight loss talk.

Matt & I watched 2 movies last night. Date Movie... stupid movie but it wasn't my pick... men! The second one was The Family Stone, good movie. Made me laugh... almost made me cry. I highly recommend it!! Tally is still at my parents house, she went home with them after dinner last night. Will be taking her home after we eat at my parents tonight. Nice to have those nights away a couple of days a month. So grateful that my mom lives a couple of miles from me and loves to spend time with her grandaughter! Thank you MOM!

Ok my laundry needs to be put in the dryer and I need a shower. Will update tomorrow on how my meal plan worked out and if I stuck with my pts and what my plan tomorrow will be. We will probably be hitting the zoo tomorrow, need to use that year pass plus we have a coupon to see the Wings of Wonder for free. Have nice Saturday!!
