I'd really planned ahead when it came to snacks and eating the weekend before (last Saturday really) so that I would have plenty of healthy options to choose from. Lots of apples and clementines to snack were easy to grab for snacking. I'd gotten a few bags of those steamer vegetables with cheese sauce. On Wednesday I took my niece and youngest nephew to town to buy hats and mittens to donate at the Credit Union for little kids who have no hats and mittens. Seriously, how great is that? Way to go CU!! Anyway, then I took the kids to Burger King for lunch. They ate and I had an iced tea. When I got home I made one of those bags of steamed vegetables. They were so good I ate the whole bag but it was only 3 Points+ so I figured it was alright.

Just head to Wisconsin!
I also braved the weather (and the traffic) by walking a lot last week, including past this funny silo. It occurred to me, as I was walking, that people in the country don't really walk, nor do they walk their dogs. This didn't stop me though the hills nearly did!! I even spent some time in the woods with the hunters (though I was only walking along) on one of the drives they did. I racked up 33 Activity Points, used 8 of them but I didn't use any of my Weekly Points Allowance. I thought this was really good. The scale might have disagreed because it stayed exactly the same as last week.
