So as I was filling out my breakfast and comparing in my head it to how I've been making it, I noticed 2-3 extra points there. (I've been having a peanut butter and honey sandwich for breakfast.) Then when I counted the points from the coffee I've been having for a year now (minus the last 10 days), it became very clear! Groaning, I realized the way I like to drink my coffee makes it a 5-7 point mug. I only get 20 points per day, so 5-7 point coffee 3 times a day could cause some problems! I was basically using up my point allotment by 10:00 each morning, never mind the chocolate chips I was munching on, then lunch and dinner and a bowl of ice cream (and peanut butter) at night.
Ugh. Hate reality sometimes!! Thankfully I have all the stuff to count points on my computer, so I can do it without paying a dime. I have to have accountability of seeing it on paper, so I really like doing it this way. Well, as much as one likes denying oneself the pleasure of yummy food.
