It all started when I decided that I deserved to treat myself to a little Taco Bell. I did my due diligence and went right to their website and looked up the nutrition stats. It's all right there on their nutrition page. In fact they even have a nutrition calculator where you can add up all the items you want to have and determine their total values. All I wanted was a simple bean burrito and a taco, so I looked them up. Armed with this information I went my handy Weight Watchers points calculator and found it right in my points range, albeit a bit high for lunch at 13 points. No matter, I rarely used up all my points and I deserved it. I was having a hard day, goo!
I got my taco and burrito and I have to say it was satisfying. Just what I wanted. I had let Temptation Tammy in and now it was time to show her the door. Problem was she wouldn't leave. I no longer wanted to have a figure-friendly meal for dinner. I wanted quesadillas. I wanted burritos. I wanted chocolate! Oh no! So, what did I do? Well, I had a quesadilla and some chocolate. Okay, I had two of each. I was terrified to add up my points, but thankfully I made it - barely. I ended the day with zero points to spare. I was lucky this time, but next time who knows. But you know what? If I screw up more next time I am certainly not going to throw in the towel. I may have "gone off" my diet yesterday but that doesn't mean I haven't been dieting nor does it erase all the work I have done for the last few weeks. That's just stupid. What is does mean is that I need to be careful. I need to watch myself and do my best to keep Temptation Tammy away from my house. So, I told her my friend Greg was having a party this weekend. He's too skinny anyway.
