Lean Protein- CHECK!

Sugar/Alcohol- CHECK!

Lessons Learned:
Crackers can get me into just as much trouble as chips. Also, I learned that I'm now used to getting in a healthy oil at lunch, because when I went to bed last night, I was positive that I had gotten both teaspoons in. Only now as I review this I realized that I didn't! I also had a sort of epiphany about the GHGs, but I will save that for a WW.com blog entry (Find me at NewGirl24 in the blog section, a lot of entries are cross-posted both here and there, but some more WW focused I just post there.)

Today's Plan:
Unfortunately, I didn't write a plan for today! I hope that this doesn't derail me. I'm running low on most of my favorite healthy foods, which I've learned will happen quickly if I actually eat OP each day. Crazy, huh? Here's the points plan, though (and I am going to try to stick to the DP today, day before WI)

morning- 5
midday- 7
evening- 13
exercise- +6

Hi Leah! It was posted in my WW Weekly Reader thing a few weeks ago that 2 teaspoons of Peanut Butter is only 1 pt!!! I noticed you had 1 TBSP written down on one of your snacks. I thought I might mention that in case that could help you shave off some pts for something else you might want to eat. :) I have been doing that recently (along with the PB2).

Wow! Thanks for the tip. I've been thinking that two teaspoons = 1 tablespoon. Oops.
