A So-So Weekend

Yesterday my DH and I wet to visit our parents about 90 min away. We had planned to go out for dinner with my sister and BIL to a seafood restaurant, but at the last minute they had changed the plans to a new buffet in town. I had eaten very light all day so had 20 points for dinner and all my flex left. I had prime rib, mashed potatoes, gravy and ceaser salad. Everything in moderation but with the martini I am sure I was over the 20 points at least. I did skip the dessert buffet though (small victory for me). At around 11pm we decided to head home but found that the one road out of town was closed after a bad accident around a nearby lake, the police said it would be another 4 hours until they could open it so we headed back to my in-laws and spent the night.

I hate having to stay overnight unprepared. We woke up and had to shower and put on the same clothes as the night before. We skipped breakfast and headed out of town this morning. We decided to take a detour to a town nearby to hit up Costco before making it home. My DH has been talking about a Costco hot dog for a week now (Turkey dog dont seem to give him the same satisfaction!) I had one as well since we skipped breakfast... When I looked up the NI when I got home I found out it was 8points!!! I dont even really like hot dogs so that will be the last one for me for awhile.

The big excitement of my day was a new Wii purchase..... Dance Dance Revolution!!! It is so hard and really makes you work up a sweat, I think this will be a great rainy day workout.

Tonights dinner was homemade calzones and salad. The calzone was stuffed with mushrooms, pineapple, turkey pepperoni, skim mozzarella and tomato sauce. They were really filling and delicious!

mmmmmm...your calzones look delicious! Were they diet friendly? Congrats about passing up the dessert buffet. Buffets are HARD, eh?!? Very cool on the DDR! We can now discuss that game in detail. lol. :D
