My plan week for Weight Watchers is Thursday to Wednesday. I knew at the beginning of the week that we were going to a barbeque at our friend’s house. But, I wasn’t sure what we were having besides the (point friendly) potato salad we had offered to bring.
My plan for the week was to save most of my weekly allowance points for the barbeque and know that I could dip into the activity points if I needed to.
I started the day with an extra long walk.
I knew that I would want to partake in some adult beverages. To make this point friendly I picked up a bottle of Skinny Girl White Cranberry Cosmo and a bottle of sparkling water.

For a friendly 1 Weight Watchers PointsPlus
I love this drink because I am satisfying the desire to have a drink, keeping it lower in alcohol and even better low points. I have pretty much replaced most of my wine drinking with this and really cut back on points I used to spend on alcohol. I think this is meant to drink straight, but it smells like pure vodka to me. The sparkling water cuts it down a lot that you get the taste without the hangover.
Now back to the barbeque. I ate lighter earlier in the day to save points for the evening. I ate enough to not be ravenous when we got there (at least I thought so). When we left the house I had the following available for the rest of the day:
- 29 daily points
- 27 weekly allowance points
- 44 activity points that I could swap
I did not go intending to eat all of those points. I did manage to stay completely within my available points without even swapping any activity points.
But I had 67 points in one day, and my body was telling me I ate too much at the end of the day. It was definitely the munchies that were out ahead of time that did me in. I ate too many potato chips, which accounted for 15 of the points eaten add that to salami, cheese and crackers and I used up those weekly allowance points in no time. I did opt for watermelon for dessert over cookies.
So all in all, I planned ahead and stayed within plan. I do think I could have done better. Lesson learned – “Back away from the potato chips!”. Thankfully my points re-set tomorrow.
