A few weeks ago, we decided to start a Family Movie Night at our house. So, on Fridays, either Scott or I hit Blockbuster and pick up a movie we'd all like to see.
So far, we've seen Bolt, Bedtime Stories and, last night, Night at the Museum.
Since I started counting points, we've had two Family Movie Nights. The first one, last Friday, I did great. Only ate about 1/2 dozen chips or so, which amounts to about 3 or 4 points. Not bad.
Last night, I made the mistake of making salsa (fresh) and onion soup dip. Now, to my credit, the salsa was zero points. Unfortunately, the chips weren't. So, about a dozen of those - 6 points. That would have been fine, but then I decided to tuck into the regular chips and onion dip. The onion dip was fat free (made with fat free sour cream), the chips, well...not. So the movie night cost me about 10 points - YIKES!!!
Normally, I try not to use the extra flexible points (35 per week), but this week, I'm glad I have 'em!!!
Today has been pretty good, though we did have home made donuts for breakfast. I ate four (one point each). Before that, I did hit the gym and actually ran the last 2 minutes of my treadmill time, so go me!
I did manage to get to the gym every day this week, so all in all it was a good week.
Oh! And that activity points thing? I figured it out. I'd have to run flat out like a crazy person to get four more per day. The way I walk/run is considered light to moderate and would net me one to two more points per day...so yeah...not gonna worry about that!!!
