NROL4W - Stage 3 - Sunday - Camping Execution

Well, I'm home, after an 18-hour vacation. It went fairly well. It was hot and miserable to begin with, then a wicked front came through and things cooled off. I went kayaking, and by "I" I mean I sat in the front while my husband paddled. There wasn't any area to do the other things, such as soccer, and the terrain was rocky and full of poison ivy, so I mostly read a book. I can't remember the last time I read an entire book in one evening. Okay, it took me part of this morning, too, but still, it has been a while.

I went into the weekend with 30 weekly/activity points remaining. I ended the weekend with 0 points. Here's how it went down.

oatmeal & banana, Frosted Mini Wheats [4]
eggs w/ avocado, light English muffin w/ sugar free jelly [1 pt]
apple & pretzels [4 pts]
chicken breast on Flat Out bread [1 pt] w/ grilled vegetables, half a hot dog [3 pts]
s'mores [12 pts] - I ate exactly what I'd planned for - 4 squares of Lindt 85% cocoa chocolate, 4 marshmallows, and 2 whole graham crackers. Did I want more? Hell yes, but there's something about that high quality dark chocolate that is strangely satisfying AND calming.

eggs w/ chicken & banana
yogurt w/ cereal
pretzels [1 pt]
grilled cheese sandwich [4 pts]
ground beef w/ corn, onions & diced tomatoes

Honestly - I did eat things I normally wouldn't eat, such as the Mini Wheats & pretzels (and the s'mores, of course). I don't know if I should feel guilty for "wasting" points like that or not. I certainly didn't need the cereal or the pretzels. The s'mores, however - no guilt at all there.

I was at 7-11 getting my newspaper this morning and they had 4 employees in the store, only 1 of whom was doing any actual work. I had to stand next to the damn donut case for 7 freaking minutes while one employee rang up the first person in line (I was third). At the time, I still had 5 points left for the day and wondered how many points was in a third of a 5-ounce eclair (so I could split it with my husband and son). Life is just not fair.

Days Binge Free: 21

Yay! Don't you feel guilty at all. That's what the flex points are for. I am SO proud of you!!! :)
