Yup, I tried to be so good, but temptation got the best of me. I started out with my healthy oatmeal with ground flax, brown sugar and almond butter. Good stuff! When mid-morning came, I grabbed the 0 point Progresso soup which I ate the whole can, so that comes out to be 1.5 points. At lunch time, I grabbed a yummy spinach salad with grilled chicken that I had made the day before.
So, you ask with all these healthy choices, how could my day have turned south so quickly? It started with my child handing me half of a Little Debbie brownie. Well, there was the trip to Wal-Mart. Someone had put peanut butter M&M's right on the end of the register for me to grab! And was it the small bag that would have limited my intake? No, it was the big bag. These are a total target food for me and I should have never picked them up. But I did.
Then I stopped at Starbucks for a tall nonfat mocha which is still 3 points. Then my dear child, who has been sick asked me to get her a cheeseburger. So, a dash through the Burger King drive through and 2 Whopper Jr's with cheese "magically" appear. One for her and one for me! 10 points right there. I should have just gotten her the cheeseburger, because she flipped out that there was "salad" on her cheeseburger.
Something also, got into my head that said, make apple dumplings for supper? What???? What was I thinking? So, anyway, I burned up all my weekly points today, and am hoping that tomorrow will be a better day!
How can I teach my child healthy habits when I'm scarfing down peanut butter M&M's?
