A little while ago I found myself s.t.a.r.v.i.n.g. (Remember my HALT blog? Never let yourself get too Hungry, Angry, Lonely or Tired? oops) and I went frantically into the kitchen looking for fast food that might do the trick. I assembled some stuff, gobbled it down and it didn't quite do the trick so I followed it with chocolate. It all sounds so sordid and horrible.
Until I step back and really look at the wreckage. Let's see:
- Whole wheat pita pocket split into 2
- about 2 tsp mayo, 1 tbps max
- 1 whole big fat juicy tomato stuffed into both sides
4 small squares of 85% dark chocolate
So that's a whopping 3 weight watchers points for the chocolate and 5 for the tomato stuff pita, for a total of 8 points which is LESS than the activity points I have already earned and need to "eat" anyway. Which means, not only didn't I go over anything, I'm still under for the week and will have my dinner as usual in a little while, no harm, no foul.
A little side note: After 3 tiny squares of the chocolate I was actually more than satisfied. I had a hard time finishing the 4th - no really. I think quality ingredients and the fact that it's dark, not milk chocolate really makes a huge difference. It's amazing.
I'm tellin' ya....when you purchase good, healthy food to keep at home, it really limits the damage you can do when you're on a rampage! Nope. Pigging out sure ain't what it used to be. THANK GOD!
