Finally, a normal day. Well, mostly. I'm starting to think that there is no such thing as a normal day. Unless you count crazy, busy, hectic as 'normal'.

I was able to eat pretty close to my daily Points yesterday. Breakfast was a banana and oatmeal. For lunch, I started with a Weight Watchers frozen meal, but when I got pulled away from it before I finished, I wound up having to scrap about half of it. They just aren't that good once they are cold. I swapped in a sandwich to complete my lunch. I ate a yogurt and some clementines. Mid-afternoon, I had a small bag of pretzels. It's funny (at least to me), I had always considered pretzels a 'healthy' snack option, so I was a bit surprised to find that small bag of twists was 3 Points. Not awful, but it gave me new perspective and might change the way that I snack. Dinner was turkey hot shots - only 6 Points for a slice of bread, 3 oz of mashed potatoes, 3 oz of Turkey Breast, and a drizzle of gravy. The turkey was leftovers that we had frozen and it made for a tasty and warm meal on a cold, rainy night. I even had room left in my day for my evening snack of milk and cookies. Although, since I substituted an Oreo for a sugar cookie, I had to use a weekly Point to make it all happen.

The best part is that the scale is starting to move back to where I was before I had those two and a half days of over-consumption. Just two more days to go this week. I am going to have to have a couple more really good days if I want to go beyond getting back to where I was at the start of the week.
