Back from the Weekend

Didn't do so good this weekend, didn't track any points so I am fixing to try and "remember' and write it down best I can. I got home and got sad and side-tracked.  I didn't binge or anything, I just ate more than I should have. Jacob was sick all weekend, we haven't slept good in weeks due to night-time issues with medication in his pump, plus had family issues going on and work has been a volcanic, molten-lava filled pressure point for quiet awhile now...whine, whine, whine....I want to do much better this week and plan on exercising more. I know that helps in managing stress.

Did anyone try anything good yet on plan this weekend? I have been reading about the new Fiber One Brownies and think I may get some to have on hand with the chocolate monster hits.  How do these things taste? These look pretty good (but only a few bites!)

Started the day off with a Bagel Thin with some peanut butter and Polander's All Fruit grape jelly, 1% milk:
Lunch was a cheeseburger with 1/2 whole wheat bun, lite mayo, onion and one sweet pickle, with some raw carrotts (and yes I dipped those carrots in ketchup!):
Ran out at lunch and bought me some Fiber One Brownies as pictures above: 3 points per the 3 bites!

What kind of snacks do ya'll turn to when it gets down and dirty?


  1. The Fiber One brownies are a little dry and cocoay but they are okay. I was a little disappointed. Hopefully they will make improvements as time goes on.

    I like Kashi granola bars and Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches for snacks.

  2. I didn't like the brownies all that much either. I keep Dove dark chocolate promises candy around and have one of those when I need an indulgence.

  3. I don't turn to snacks now but this is the first time in my entire life that I've been able to get a handle on it. There have been times that I've had to fight it this summer, but I have been successful- and I'm still amazed. I do enjoy the Weight Watchers or the Russel Stover sugar free coconut candy- a serving is three pieces but I only eat one. If I start on anything else, it'll sabotage me! I'm a sugar addict!

  4. The Skinny Cow candies (they're new!) are WAY better than the FiberOne bars, and they're 3 points. It feels like you're eating something way more sinful than you really are. Highly recommend them =)

  5. When I want a snack or feel like eating, I'll eat fruit with a protein. Or special k crackers with ww cheese. I try not to eat anything with sugar or sweets (even those fiber one brownies or bars). Yes, they are not too bad in points but they lead me to binging.
