I tracked my Weight Watchers smart points today. It wasn’t that bad. I said no to an ice cream sandwich – it would have been 7 points!! Too many to waste on something that tastes good in the moment. My coffee cream is 1 point per tablespoon! Which adds up quickly! If I put a little bit of sugar in there, .5 of a teaspoon, it is quite a few points just to have coffee in the morning. Each food has a points value that is calculated combining the calories, saturated fat, sugar and protein. The first three increase the points value and the protein decreases it. Did I explain that yesterday?? Well, anyway, some of the things I’m used to eating are high and add up quite quickly, like cheese or cream or my favourite yogurt (hmmm…those were all dairy products- that wasn’t intentional!! I guess dairy would be high though…not all of it, but even 1 cup of 2% milk is 5 points!!) I have 33 points allowed for the day and 43 extra points for the rest of the week. Those extra points can be divided between each day evenly, or used for one day to splurge or for whatever you like. But they’re only for the week. If you don’t use them up by the end of your week, they reset at 43 – they don’t carry over. Today I only used 29 of my 33 points. The daily points are like a target and if you’re not exactly at your total the world won’t end!! I’m trying not to use up my extra points until the weekend, because my daughter has a dance competition and we have a wedding to go to. Being away from home will make it difficult to control what I’m taking in. I’ll have to eat carefully still, but I’m not the one preparing it, so it will be harder and I have a higher chance of going over. You can’t exactly choose what they’re going to serve you at a wedding!!
So, as I said, my daughter has a competition this weekend. Her solo costume that I ordered still hadn’t arrived, so I called the dance supply store that we ordered it from today, to see if we could track the shipping, to find out if it’s going to arrive on time. So when I called and asked them when it should be arriving, they told me that it’s set to ship in June 2nd!! Holy crap!! I was floored! Umm, all of her competitions will be finished by June 2nd!! So she has her first time ever performing a solo this weekend and doesn’t have a costume!! So I cancelled the order, because it’s useless!!! And…guess who went dress shopping?? Yup. Nothing like last minute or anything! Sheesh! We looked in many stores and finally found something that she liked that might work. We bought it, but kept the receipt. We may go to Forever 21 tomorrow evening after dance…to see if we can find something a bit better. But, just in case we can’t, we bought this dress. It’s a pretty black sundress. Her teacher said to go check Forever 21, so I guess we will. Can’t get more last minute than the evening before the competition starts!! Yikes! She also needs a pair of black dance/jazz tights too – you know, in all the spare time we have from now until her competition!! Oh dear! This is stressing me out!! Well, I’m going to head to bed now. Until tomorrow! Night all! 💤😴
