So, I was determined to not give in to my temptation of eating about 30 lbs of junk food. After my decision was final, the second issue of the night started to take form. What was I going to eat for dinner? Anyone ever have one of those nights were you don't fell like having anything in particular? Then it turns into, well I had that last night and I don't feel like having that other thing tonight. When I get like that, my fiancee wants to put me right through a wall. Luckily when I am having one of those indecisive nights, I turn to walking to the super market in hoping that I will find something that jumps out of me. When I arrived at the food store, I was armed with my Weight Watchers Points book and my Weight Watchers Points calculator (a great tool in times like this). After searching for a few minutes, I came across a green box in the frozen foods section that had the name "Morning Star Farms" on it. My fiancee turns to me and says that a lot of what "Morning Star Farms" makes is vegetarian. I looked at the picture and notice that it was a box of chicken nuggets. Veggie chicken nuggets???? How in the heck does that work???? So, I whipped out my points calculator and found out that it came out to 1 point per nugget. I figured that since I am trying to expand my food selection, I would give the veggie chicken nuggets a try. I found the "meat" part of the dinner and now it was time to look for the side dish. I ended up gravitating towards the "Smart Ones" section which just so happens to be the Weight Watchers frozen food brand. I really want to stay away from the frozen pre-made foods as much as possible but I was hungry and didn't feel much like cooking. Anyway to make a long story short, I over came my temptation for junk food, took a walk to the food store, and purchased a nice healthy & filling meal. I would say that this was a winning solution to the obstacle of the night.
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man = 41 Points)
(For everyone new to the blog, I am following the Weight Watchers Points System)
Breakfast - 2 rice cakes, egg whites on whole wheat toast with a slice of american cheese = Points 9
Lunch - Chicken salad with fat free french dressing (Wendy's) = Points 15
Snack - 2 rice cakes = Points 2
Dinner - 10 veggie chicken nuggets with a side of Mac-n-Cheese from "Smart Ones" = Points 16
Dessert - Peanut Butter Ice Cream Bar (Weight Watchers) = Points 3
Total Points Eaten Today = 45 Points (I went 4 points over my limit) I consider this a win tonight based on the craving that I had for junk food earlier.
I had a softball game tonight. I felt lighter on my feet and I was running around the bases a lot easier. I have a full day planned tomorrow of activities for my fiancee and I that involves constant movement. We are sure to have a hell of a workout tomorrow. Tune into tomorrow's post (Day #20) to find out what we did.
