I ate chicken wings last night. I'm not even going to make any excuses other than it was debate night. Not that that is any sort of excuse whatsoever! Yes I will count the points.

I'm going to focus on the success I had yesterday instead as I sit here and eat my delicous oatmeal at my desk on a rainy morning. I was bored with my chicken chili yesterday so I didn't eat anything before I went out for lunch to do some shopping. As usual I was passing a million fast food places and wanting everything in sight. For some reason I love to eat in my car (we'll analyze that at another time). I almost caved and got a burger but I really thought about what I used to do when I lost 100lbs. and the answer was right in front of me. Hooray for Chick-Fil-A. I had a grilled chicken sandwich (which they now have on a whole grain roll) and a diet lemonade. Only 5 points. I was proud of my decision and it kept me full all afternoon.

As if that weren't enough, I walked the dogs with my husband. For a good 30 minutes. Normally I would make some sort of an excuse and he would take them. Not only did we get a good workout but we had a great time together. The cool weather makes it so much easier for me to want to be outside.

Tonight is my class again. Hopefully there will be no thunder otherwise the pool will be closed. I usually bring additional workout gear in case that happens because I can just picture myself saying "oh well pool's closed. No workout for me!" I don't have that stuff today so fingers crossed!

I'm still feeling motivated - and a little sassy today!
