Out of my kitchen = dumb ass choices

Yesterday was an odd day. Husband & I did lots of errands and work in the yard. One of the errands we were supposed to do was pick up our fresh veggies at the grocery, since we had purchased all our meat the night before at Costco. Well, the day wore on, and when we woke up from our NAP on the couch we realized it was 5:00 and all we had for dinner was meat. I no sooner had said that to husband when my cousin sent me a facebook message asking us to a BBQ party he was having - all we needed to bring was our own meat and booze. Which was great, cause that is all we had!

Well, we get there and of course, had a ball. But what he had to go with the meat was store bought macaroni salad, potato salad and of course, not a green salad to be seen! I don't know why, but store bought macaroni salad is like crack to me. I had around 1/2 to 3/4 cup of each - but the stuff from the store is so high in pts..... I don't even know how many points I ate. Does anyone have a guess?


One thing I did right though..... I had put off my run all day - it was hot out, and I was feeling lazy (as evidenced by the nap). When I got home from the BBQ, I didn't even sit down - I went right into my room, changed my clothes, got my puppy and out I went. It was a good run too! You know how when you're out there and you've hit your stride and you get that high? Mmmmm, I love that feeling. It is that feeling that keeps me at it.

Not much on the agenda today. Of course, today we will get the rest of our groceries. I have to separate and freeze my meat. That should prove to be SO exciting. In-laws arrive Wednesday, so I need to continue scrubbing the house for its inspection.

I have to go to the Club with husband today. I will spin for an hour while he does his weights. Later tonight I will take puppy for his run. Hopefully it will be a bit cooler by then. It is supposed to be quite hot today. That should be good for the Stampede though - I think the #'s were down a bit this year. Last day already - boy, it went fast! Back to reality now for a lot of people.

Have a healthy day bloggers!!


  1. Yikes, I looked it up, thinking ahhhh...can't be too many points, but it is 8 points for 3/4c of store bought macaroni salad.

    Still, what a great job to get right back out there!!

    O.K., Fatinah, I've given myself a compliment as directed. :-)

    And speaking of being hard on one's self, it doesn't sound like you made a dumbass choice - you had limited options!

  3. Great job on the running girl!
