So last night I got home and the BF was starvin' marvin and it would take a long time for me to get to the store and get the couple of pieces for dinner I needed to make dinner at home so we opted for what we thought would be a healthy alternative to eating McDonalds or Pizza Hut or the like. We got Quiznos. I got a regular classic club and a cup of brocolli and cheese. I was trying to decide if I was still hungry after eating the "small" portion of it (ie, half). I decided to look up the points value before I decided to eat the other half or find something else to eat and boy am I glad I did. A small Quiznos classic club sub is 14 points! I think I hit the floor! >.> With that and my cup of brocolli I had 17 points already for dinner. Yeah so no more classic club for me! lol. I fell within my daily points so no harm no foul but wow an eye opener. I wish I could find the subway here in town, they've got to be much more better (and I tend to like their chicken sandwhich with lots of veggies, plus they have a better veggie selection imo). Instead of eating the other half of the sandwhich I opted to have some applesauce and a small container of light yogurt and then later I had my normal WW ice cream bar. Much better and more filling alternative.
So, lesson learned, Quiznos sucks for points value. lol. But since I have been paying attention to that "full feeling" more, I was already trying to decide if I was honestly more hungry or if I was just needing to let it sit a little and then reevaluate. Comes in handy sometimes. :)
I'm also proud to post that I did indeed get up at the crack of dawn this morning and work out. I don't feel near as sore today as I did the first day and I'm feeling much more awake, and not near as "blah" feeling as I have the last couple of days. Since Wii Fit prompts you to weigh each day I went ahead out of curiosity, up .2, but considering the rather heavy meal last night and ate out for lunch... and the workouts I've done this week, m'eh no worries! :) I have 3 more days to work out for my goal anyway before the WI so I'm sure I'll drop it and then some, it's what I did last week anyway.
So keep at it! See ya'll later!
