I was handed a gift this morning. I'm not looking at the gift and saying , "see, I can splurge and I get a gift." I'm instead looking at it as a true gift and I know that the next time I may not receive a gift. What in the heck am I talking about? Yesterday I had my food carefully planned out. All was well and I actually had 30 calories left over. I was hungry when I left work, and when Todd asked to delay dinner until 7:15 (a little over an hour after I got home). I nibbled on a marshmallow (or two or three) and some dried strawberries. So there went my extra points. But about an hour and a half after dinner, we were sitting down to watch a tv show together and I popped some popcorn. Yes, I added some loc cal spray butter, some parmesean cheese and some butter buds. So this morning when I found my weight was exactly the same, I realized that I had been handed a gift (no exercise yesterday either).

So today, I'm staying within my points no question about it!!!

Every now and then it is nice to get a "gift". Have you tried the flavored seasonings for popcorn? They are VERY low cal and perfect for adding flavor to air popped popcorn! Andy loves them.....I am not a popcorn eater! WOW! Amazing there is something that I can say NO to!

Just goes to show that sometimes good things happen for no reason whatsoever. I don't suppose we can plan on that every time, but once in a while a gift is a wonderful thing.
