I also kept my boredom eating/snacking in check this week and also stayed within my points using all but two of my WPPAs. I am going to try and follow the same path this week as I did last so I can continue to see the scale go down.
I am very busy this week with something going on each day before I report for my schedule graveyard shift at 8pm. I’ll have to get a little creative with my activity and find ways to sneak it in. I think I can do my WATP DVD as well. Then, Saturday I am hosting our family Easter celebration so I need to make sure I have some WPPA left, although our dinner meal will be my first meal of the day and I’ll have all my 35 DSPA to use. Still though, I need to stay mindful and stay focused. I am right on the cusp of getting into the 220s again and it is super exciting!
In other news, I am no longer a Halo Top virgin. A few days ago I saw that our local Winco is now stocking Halo Top ice cream and I have wanted to try it. For anybody that has not heard of it, HT is a low calorie, fat, sugar ice cream that is also low in points and higher in protein. A whole pint will cost you anywhere from 9 SPV to 13 SPV. That is a huge points plus bargain as each ½ cup serving is 2-3 SPV. When we stopped in last Thursday the shelf was empty. So, yesterday I was on the hunt for some HT. I stopped at Winco and managed to find one vanilla bean, chocolate, and birthday cake. Of those three, birthday cake is the best.
I continued on my hunt, although I heard the other stores had them for $6.00 a pint and Winco was selling them for $3.92 a pint. I ended up buying two more kinds at Rosauers for $4.99 a pint. I got pistachio and salted caramel. I like them both but pistachio is my favorite. I am dying to try the Oatmeal Cookie and there are so many others out there to try. The problem is they are so expensive, what if I don’t like it? Is it tacky to return ice cream? I promise, I only had a taste.
I cleaned the house from top to bottom in preparation for our Easter festivities on Saturday. I rewarded myself with a beer when I was done.
Onto a new week we go!
