Check, Check, Check, and Check...

Was able to get the first four items on my list checked off. And because of that I didn't have to do number 5. I do feel better about myself for doing that.

And here come the snows again. Prediction tomorrow is 3-7 inches. Glad I'm stocked up. There's a section of our mountain road that is a little steep. And it doesn't get a lot of sunlight in the winter, even with the leaves gone on the trees. So therefore it doesn't melt as well as the rest of the road. With the two warm days it melted a little. Just enough to turn all the packed snow to a sheet of ice. I haven't ventured down it but my neighbors called last night to tell me how bad it is. So actually that amount of snow will be a good thing on that section. Gotta tell you something funny... The neighbor that called saves her used kitty litter and spreads it on that section on her way down the mountain. So not only do we slip/slide down the ice but we have to slip/slide through cat poop too. Her husband keeps telling her that it doesn't do any good and to quit but she is a stubborn woman and won't stop.

I saw a brand new elliptical on the news yesterday that had a seat. I thought to myself that that kind of elliptical would be fun. So I went on-line to check it out. It is soooo expensive that they don't even tell you how much it is. They just tell you that you can finance it at $60 per month. Think I'll just stick to a treadmill, thank you very much.

My grandmother always had dessert after supper. And since she raised me I have a really hard time not doing that. I try every evening and when I manage to not eat dessert I munch all evening. So I decided to give in to it and had a Warm Delight Mini last night within an hour after supper. It actually helped keep me away from munching all evening. So I think I will add dessert to my evening menus. Whatever works, right? And it may even take care of the chocolate cravings. I've mentioned before that I don't have a sweet tooth and eating sweets all day just isn't me, but I do need it in the evenings after supper. Some days I'll have yogurt, a granola bar or a bowl of cereal and that should take care of it.

Have a great week, blog-buds!

Woo yoooo!!! You got yourself back on track! I'm so proud of you!

I try to work in a dessert or a treat after my evening meal into my food intake also. It is a treat that I enjoy and it sometimes really helps me stay on track throughout the day because I know that if I do, I'll be able to have 'such and such' after dinner!

Yaay for goals achieved!

I tend to want a little something extra after dinner, too. Most of the time it's fruit, but sometimes I'll have a s-f pudding or yogurt. I have some of those warm minis on hand, but I've only made them a couple of times.

Stay in, and stay warm!

Nice that you didn't have to resort to #5! Interesting about having the dessert soon after dinner - I will have to try that method with my evening apple.

Sounds like you have a great start to a great week! Keep up the good work. Predicting snow, AKA ice? here as well starting tomorrow afternoon. The only reason I am glad that I am still unemployed, don't have to worry about driving in this stuff.
Stay warm!

Hey great job getting back on track! I like to eat frozen cherries, maybe you'll want to do that when you get warmer. But it's a great "treat"! :)

Glad your all stocked up for bad weather. Funny about the kitty litter. UCK! Yea for achieving your goals, you done good. I like those little Warm Delight things, I keep them in the cupboard if I just have to have something sweet.

Glad you got your list completed. I have been having a FF sugar free Jello carmel pudding about an hour after supper. It is only 50 calories and very yummy. We also have cold and snow..... finally

Long ago in another lifetime I did weight watchers and was successful in a short amount of time. One thing I did every day was end the day with a rice krispie square. That was my treat and that was me saying to myself "No more food today!" so dessert isn't always bad :)

Eww, about the kitty litter! I bet you make sure the car vents are closed when you're navigating that part of the road.

One of my special treat comfort foods used to be a cup of tea and a piece of cake with lemon frosting. I love those 1 point WW lemon cakes, and I often have one in the evening with a cup of green decaf tea. Hits the spot.
