Another birthday party and still on point

I love weight watchers but they really need to revamp their cake section. They don't make it easy to figure out how much cake one can have. Luckily the host of my niece's birthday party does WW and was helpful. Now I know I don't have to eat cake, but when you budget for it, well its part of the reason I chose WW. Life does not make losing weight easy. But when you are at a party its a little harder to get the portions right if someone just hacks into the cake. Luckily I was able to get the right portion and not have to worry. It was probably the smallest piece of cake I have ever eaten but there is satisfaction in knowing you don't have to stress about it.

Tomorrow is book club a.k.a use my weekly points club. I've finally narrowed down the menu. We are reading The Hunger Games but they wouldn't let me do the not feeding them and making them go hungry theme. So my cousin and I decided to label things from different districts and I'm doing a "dessert on fire" aka cherries jubilee. I've always wanted to flambe something and the recipe is surprisingly simple.

I'm ready to get paid because my pantry is looking a little slim and I'm totally out of veggies and I have one can of pineapple. I'm determined to stay in my points but I still want to emphasize the healthy eating and do this the best I can (with an occasional piece of cake and a McRib - don't judge me- here and there). I know it doesn't work as well if all your points are carbs and meat. (And its getting kind of boring) I really like a lot of variety, especially when I'm eating healthy.

  1. That's what I love about WW too. You never have to feel deprived if you can practice moderation. Good job! :)
