picking up the pieces...AGAIN

I did so dang good today. I kept my points under control. I ate dinner and I actually had 3 points leftover. NOT so after I had a banana with peanut butter and a sliver of the dessert that Todd made (basically pudding in a chocolate crust). ARRGGGHHH!!!!! I was so proud of myself and then I totally lost it! Where is my motivation? Where is my will power? No, better yet, what the heck am I thinking??????????????

Report from eating at a very tempting place

I didn't do too badly yesterday. We ate at really odd hours...which does kinda mess up the day. I had breakfast at a somewhat normal time. And at lunchtime I had a bowl of green beans and a granola bar. Damn, those things are like crack! We ate dinner at about 4:30...a bit early. We went to Hoss's. While we were there, I realized that why I actually liked Hoss's was for the bread bar and the dessert bar. Neither is fantastic...but they are OK in their own way. :-) Well, since I've been trying to watch, I try to stay away from those areas...but it's difficult and I often fail. Well, yesterday I was determined to not 'fail' in my attempt to eat healthy there. I chose not to order a meal. NOW, if I order I end up getting Chicken breast (usually BBQ'd) and steamed broccoli. But I decided that I didn't need the I just got the bar. I didn't do tooooo badly. I got a huge salad......and I didn't put too much bad stuff on it...OK, just a little cheese and salad dressing but oh well. I did have about 3-5 spoon fulls of each type of soup that they had (broccoli cheese, potato and chicken noodle). and about two bites each of mac salad and potato salad. The dessert bar......I had some fat free/sugar free jello and some fat free/sugar free pudding (that was tasteless...let me tell you) and I did splurge and have a little rectangle of cake.....1 inch by 2 inches. Overall I feel as if I did well. So why do I feel so bloated and icky????

Well, the bad water consumption yesterday.....I'd say I'd be lucky if I got in 10 ounces of water! Heck, I probably didn't even drink that!
