Road trip!

We left on a road trip on Friday. We had a late start. It was 3:30pm by the time we left. Keith and Jazzy had school and work, respectively. But, we got on the road!

My morning started with 2 patties of turkey sausage(3pts.) and 2 eggs(4pts.) and coffee(1pt.)

Afternoon snack of a pear and 1/2 cup of low fat cottage cheese (2pts.) I must've bought fat free cottage cheese the last time I was at the store. I believe the fat free version is only 1 point for 1/2 cup. Oh well, now I know.

For lunch I made yet another burrito. Whole wheat tortilla (3pts.), 1/4 cup refried beans(1pt.), 1 wedge of laughing cow cheese (1pt.) carnitas (5pts.), reduced fat sour cream (1pt.), lettuce and salsa

Yikes! It all added up because of the carnitas meat. I made it months ago and had it in the freezer. I didn't look up to see how many points it was before I made my burrito. Ugh! 11 points! I try not to use that much at lunch. I prefer to eat maybe 9 points at most for lunch. So, for the rest of the day I have 8 points. And, we're driving in the middle of Kansas where dinner will be something fast food. Well, this is just how life is so I guess I will figure it out.

Road trips always include snacks right?!? I think I like to eat in the car because of boredom. What else is there to do? ;) Keith and Jazzy enjoyed their snacks while driving. I was a good girl!

McDonald's it was. There was an Arby's across the street but I had already looked up what I could have assuming every town has a Mickey D's. I had a cheeseburger (8pts.) and a side salad with Newman's Own fat free balsamic vinaigrette(1pt.). Left me wanting more but that's what fast food does to you.
Then, when it was my turn to drive I snacked on carrots sticks. Yeah me! Then I had a stick of sugar free gum.
