Sunday November 18, 2012

This was an interesting day. I'm happy with my choices.

We decided to make an impromptu trip to Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure after church. We hadn't seen the Christmas decorations yet and were itching to see them.

To our surprise, it was really crowded. We hadn't thought about it being the beginning of a vacation week for many people. So yeah. It was crowded and chaotic. But we got to see the decorations and walk around a bit.

Breakfast:
Oatmeal with banana & pineapple
Coffee with SF creamer
(Yes, I am working on eliminating artificial sweeteners but I want to use up the stuff I have and then replace it with natural stuff(
5 PointsPlus

Lunch:
Plaza Inn Fried Chicken Dinner
There were 3 pieces of crispy, fried chicken. I ate the breast.
Mashed potatoes & gravy
Green beans
I estimated this at 22 PointsPlus

It frustrates me that Disneyland will not provide nutritional information for its restaurants. So I just counted the points based on similar foods from other places. I might add that I am REALLY proud of myself for not eating everything on that plate! I didn't eat the other two pieces of chicken or the biscuit. I am making progress!!

We didn't stay late and we were on the road heading home by 7:30.

I was hungry when we arrived home so I made a grilled cheese sandwich. I used two slices of Roman Meal bread, 3 PointsPlus, and two slices of Kraft Fat Free Sharp Cheddar Singles, 1 PointsPlus. Spray lightly with nonstick spray and grill until the bread is browned and the cheese is melted. This is quite the treat for 4 PointsPlus!! I had grapes with it.

Snacks:
Peanuts 8 PointsPlus. YIKES!!!
My guilty pleasure!
Banana

39 PointsPlus Total
Weekly Points Allowance used 13
Weekly remaining 33
ActiveLink Points Earned 2
ActiveLink remaining 18

Wow!, I would have scarfed that chicken down. That took a lot of strength to turn that down
