Day 4, aka the day I stopped trying to come up with cute names forposts.

Yesterday, I got up early and rode my recumbent bike for 30 minutes again. So far, I've been sticking to my exercise goals, and for that I am very happy!

I ate well all day, and stayed under my points allotment. Not intentionally - I felt like I ate as much as I wanted to. Check it:

Weight Watchers English muffin w/2 tsp. Brummel & Brown: 3 pts.
Blueberry Fiber One Yogurt: 1 pt.
Coffee with stevia: 0 pts.

Weight Watchers Smart Ones Fettuccini Alfredo: 6 pts.
Peach: 0 pts.
Starbucks double-shot with sugar-free vanilla syrup: 0 pts.

1/2 Chipotle bowl with chicken, 1 Tbsp. sour cream and 1 Tbsp. guacamole: 8 pts.

Then I came home and did 30 more minutes on the bike.

I KNOW, RIGHT?! What a good day.

AND - I went grocery shopping for tonight's dinner yesterday afternoon. In the process, I bought the first bottle of wine I've ever purchased that cost more than $6.

Why would I go and do that? Well, I'm glad you asked.

Last weekend, Frank and I had a lovely meal at Pot Pie, where we enjoyed their out-of-this-world mussels and a very tasty bottle of chardonnay. The wine was a Laboure-Roi Macon Villages Chardonnay, but I couldn't remember that much when I went to Cosentino's in Brookside. So I asked the guy for "an unoaked chardonnay with a French phrase and the word Macon in it." That was enough information, apparently, and I went home with a bottle.

What's a girl who's participating in a weight loss challenge doing buying wine? The way I see it, if I'm going to drink at all during this challenge, it's going to be decent stuff. So I plan on having  a glass of this tonight. It will pair wonderfully with my Sloppy (and Healthy) Joes, don't you think? ;)

  1. I like the title of your IS hard coming up with names for posts sometimes! Good luck with your weight loss challenge. I used to do WW and really liked it until they switched to the new points system. I just didn't like it has much, but it's a great program overall.
