I scream, you scream, we all scream...for ICE CREAM!!

Thursday, October 23, 2003
Well, I sure used up all my points and banked points last night. I was craving something sweet and we went through sonic and I got a small blast, which really isn't that small. I ate about half and the rest went to the garbage...then when we went home later (after watching Michael's brothers play basketball) he fixed us both half cup of Borden's Tres Leche ice cream with strawberries...yum! Again I ate about half and gave him the rest of mine (he doesn't have to count calories). I have been doing that a lot lately - I eat about half my plate, whatever is on it, and end up giving him the rest or packing it up in the fridge for lunch the next day. So, I had a little more than a cup of ice cream all together yesterday - which really isn't THAT bad. Well, yeah it is...it probably hit me up for about 6 to 8 points!! I had some banked points saved up, though and if I am really good today and bank a couple more I should be fine! Otherwise for dinner, I had the left over King Ranch Chicken. It was even better the next day actually. I guess the onions and bell peppers weren't as strong!

Now, here's the real test! I am going to East Texas this weekend to the town I grew up in. My parents went up yesterday and I still have a lot of family there - namely my Grannie! That means there is going to be good old country cooking going on this weekend that is going to be hard to resist!!! Water, water, water! That will help I am sure!!!!
