March 3 - Daily Journal

Wt: 232.6

So..still fighting this sinus cold but definitely feeling better.

I forgot to mention that I picked up a Weight Watchers Point Calculator last week and I am loving it. It makes grocery shopping and recipe picking so easy. I had a spreadsheet in Excel to calculate points and then I used the one on the Weight Watchers Online site - its one of the etools....but this little gem is so much quicker and easier and portable! Love it, love it! It also has a function to track your points for the day - I like it if I am away from my little journal or if I eat something off plan, I can count the points and not forget about them later.

Tomorrow is my "baby's" birthday. He will be 12. I have no idea where the years went, when I look at him I still see a chubby little toddler...reality check. He's 5 feet tall now (same height as me) and a handsome young man. He is not a big sweets kid so every year he asks for a special birthday dinner - this year it will be steak, sushi, garlic shrimp and steak cut fries with orange sorbet for dessert....I went to pick up the groceries tonight and OUCH...not a cheap meal...still cheaper than going out and I know he will enjoy every bite.

Low on the points today - and I've not eaten the pancakes and yogurt that I tracked as "anytime" yet - will have them as a snack before bed since my dinner was so light...but just not hungry today at all, I could barely finish my lunch.
