A Much Needed Girls Day

September 13, 2009

9-13-09_breakfastEvery once in awhile it is good to have special days. Days where you allow yourself to go out to eat at a restaurant or to splurge and have a special dessert. Weight Watchers allows for days like these with an extra 25 points each week over and above your daily allotment of points. Today was one of those days for me. My Mom and I had a girls day.

I had breakfast at home. Today it was a quick bowl of oatmeal. It was the instant kind that comes in packets and you microwave. Not a bad way to spend 2 points.

I took my Mom out to my favorite restaurant for lunch. It’s a Greek style restaurant that I’ve been visiting since I was a teen. I ordered Chicken Souvlaki. It was delicious!


Cubed chicken on a skewer, marinated in a mixture of Greek herbs and spices. Served on a large plate with rice pilaf and a Greek salad. I only ate half of this and had the rest boxed up so I could take it home and eat it later. (or give it to one of my family)

My Mom and I saw the new movie Julia & Julia. Awesome film! I’ll definitely be buying it when it comes out on DVD. After the movie we got some shopping done. Tomorrow I will have to post a picture of me in the new outfit I bought.

We also went out for Dinner. I ordered a soup and salad. We had such a great time together. I didn’t end up getting home till about 9 p.m. My family missed me but were glad I had a great day. We all need a special day every once in awhile.

My Daily Points Target = 32
Total points spent = 29
Breakfast: Oatmeal = 2 points
Lunch: half an order of Chicken Souvlaki = 10 points
Coffee with cream and sugar = 4 points
Dinner: cream of broccoli soup, a side salad and a biscuit = 9 points
Coffee with cream and sugar = 4 points
