It’s always nice to be away from home. On Friday we woke up and relaxed for a while. After getting motivated we went to a well-known nearby Swedish breakfast restaurant for some Swedish pancakes! I was good and got one pancake with one egg and 2 pieces of bacon. I estimated it was all 8 points+. Big for a breakfast, but better than splurging entirely!
After chatting and catching up with our friends we all went to the liquor store for some beer. Once we got back to the apartment we played video games for a bit and decided it was time to start drinking!
I had been hungry for awhile so I snacked on some popcorn (2 points+) and lot’s of strawberries. We ended up playing more games, and then going outside for a little while for the boys to play catch.
Eventually we were all starving and it came to be dinner time! (What happened to lunch… was it beer?) We went to a cute little restaurant downtown and I actually did pretty well! I had a chipotle chicken wrap with sweet potato fries which I believe came to around 21 points+.
We walked to the Rockford Brewing Company for some drinks, and hung out there for a pretty long time. They had yummy beer, and luckily I don’t drink as fast as I used to!
We went back to the apartment and I had another part of a beer and ate the rest of a bag of birthday cake cookie thins. I am estimating that to be around 11 points+.
I decided to use the “incorrect” point system for my beer. Usually, Weight Watchers uses the alcohol in grams in the “fat” section to create points, but I decided to just count it by the carbs that were actually in the beer. Total I ended at around 12 points+ of beer, although REAL Weight Watchers would have counted it as WAY more. Overall I didn’t do TOO bad, 28 points+. I usually end up using up all 49 weekly extra points as well on these weekends and being in the HIGH negatives.
Saturday didn’t have as healthy of a start. Our friend woke up and went to get donuts. I had all the intentions to have one and then eat something else to fill myself, but I ended up having 2 donuts and half a long john that I split with Tony. This got me up to 22 points+ for the day and it was only 9!
We lounged around and watched Big Hero 6 while Tony recovered from QUITE the hangover. Meanwhile I created an event for a 10 year class reunion with my junior high classmates! I am really excited and hope there is a good turn out!
Tony was feeling better so we left for Chipotle for lunch. I was good and got a salad! Only 7 points+. We did shopping at a few places and then stopped at Walmart. I bought some Arctic Zero ice cream which wasn’t very good (for splurging at least) so after my 1/2 cup for 1 point+ we went to Walgreens to get real ice cream and I ended up eating 2/3 a pint of caramel cookie gelato. It was 25 points+ for the whole pint, and I did end up finishing the rest after dinner.
I got the great news that I got work off Sunday, so we didn’t have to rush to leave Sunday. We decided tonight would be a more relaxed night than last so we sat and started by watching Pitch Perfect 2! While watching the movie I had a bag of beef jerky for 2 points+. Tony ended up deciding to take Sunday off, so he made a call to make it happen!
Once we were done with that we played some video games for a while. Then we started dinner! We had spaghetti and meatballs, which was 21 points+. It was SOOOO good.
I finished my gelato as I mentioned before and we played more games separately and then played some multiplayer games as well. I ended up drinking a Summer Shandy, which was “1 point+”. (Actually more on REAL Weight Watchers.)
I had been craving cookies all night so finally the boys ran out to get Oreos. (I ate far too many, and I don’t even want to share the points). So much for not doing badly this weekend, but I’ve decided to not to beat myself up over it. I did make healthier choices for some of my meals each day, and I could have over splurged as I sometimes do!
Tomorrow is a new day, and as long as I continue kicking ass all week, I won’t be too upset over weekends like this. As I’ve said before; It’s summer, I am 24, I want to enjoy my life.
