You guys may have gleaned from my posts lately that I am trying to get back on the wagon with working out and maintaining a healthy diet. I have started going to the gym during my lunch hour and am focusing on eating less junk. During the weekdays I pack my food (breakfast, lunch and snacks) and have been pretty good with sticking to my a schedule and not just stuffing my face when I am bored.
The nights are a struggle for me though. I crave desserts after dinner and snacks when watching TV and relaxing. Last weekend we hunkered down on the couch to watch a movie and Taylor was eating a bowl of buttery popcorn. I could smell it and I wanted to snatch the whole bowl from her and wolf it down. I didn’t, but it got me thinking that the best way for me to be successful is to plan ahead.
After doing some research I went to Stop & Shop and stocked up on some healthier snack options. This way I can indulge my sweet tooth when Taylor and I are having one of our girl’s nights in.
I bought Weight Watchers® Mint Patties and a box of Jolly Time Healthy Pop Kettle Corn that comes with four individual 100 calorie bags. The chocolates and the popcorn are all individually wrapped so I can stay mindful of how much I am eating. (Have you guys ever had a black-out moment where you look down and realized you just ate an entire row of cookies? This should hopefully prevent that from happening while I am watching my movie.)
Stop by your local Stop and Shop between 9/1/16 – 9/28/16 and when you buy any (5) FIVE participating Weight Watchers products (excluding Heinz SmartOnes & Meeting Room Products) you’ll Save $3.00 instantly while supplies last!
I usually eat a big tub of popcorn and a box of mint/chocolate candies during movie night. I would Google to see how many calories that is but I don’t even want to know. I am just going to guess it is a lot.
With these Weight Watchers® snacks I can happy and present in my girl’s night in with my Daughter without deviating from my healthy eating.
I mean, who wants to sit through a movie with someone next to you munching on delicious foods when you cant enjoy them as well? I don’t and thankfully now I don’t feel like I have to!
Do you guys have any specific times that are a struggle for you to keep on track with your healthy eating? How do you cope?
