Everybody loves chocolate...
I've got to start my blog today with a confession...
Last night was Mr. CCC's and mine's 3-year anniversary. Like most of those battling their weight, to me, a good celebration includes good food. Since it was a weeknight, we didn't make it to our usual place, but we went to Grand Lux near the house.
Had a great, great meal...roasted chicken with veggies (yes, I even ate the broccoli and snap peas. Aren't you proud?). I stayed away from the bread. I only drank half of my glass of wine.
But there was something I couldn't pass up--the molten chocolate cake with ice cream. It was one of the baked-to-order desserts and let me tell you...it was so heavenly even Mr. CCC, a man who can take or leave sweets, was scraping the plate for the last bits of chocolate. It was wonderful and well worth all 30 of my remaining flex points.
For the rest of the week, I'm going to have to make sure I exercise and am obsessive about my points. After all, Saturday's weigh-in day will be here before I know it.
But the chocolate craving will re-emerge. I know that. So I'm preparing myself...by adding Hostess 100-Calorie Pack Chocolate Cupcakes to my grocery cart this evening.
These little treasures have small packets with 3 small chocolate cupcakes. Add a cup of skim milk and it's the perfect dessert...especially since 1 packet is just one point.
No, I'm not kidding. One point. (They're super high in fiber!)
A much more reasonable indulgence than the aforementioned molten chocolate cake, but I must admit--last night was one of those nights that reminded me why I love Weight Watchers. I was able to really enjoy a special night out and know I didn't blow my weight-loss efforts.
Gotta love that. Now off to find me some teeny tiny cupcakes...
