Let It Snow, Let It Snow...Wait A Minute, It's Only October!!

Today we got snow. Oh not a little flurrying - an actual snowstorm!  Snow Emergency Plan is in effect, there are areas without power (fortunately not us) and well it's just a mess.

 It's cold and snowy, so hubby and I just had a lazy day.  What could be better than the original "Halloween" being on AMC??  Yep, not one of the sequels or the crappy remake..but the actual original one.  We also watched "Nowhere Boy" which was a movie about John Lennon's relationship with his aunt and mother - another good movie.

Today I pulled out the slow cooker and made this:

Roni's Sante Fe Chicken In A Slow Cooker

It was very good!  I ate mine in a tortilla wrap, while hubby ate his like chili.  It was a winner!

I ended my meal with my new guilty pleasure:

Yoplait Light Yogurt with Granola - comes into only 5 points plus (and worth every point)!  I love the cherry ones, but they also have blueberry, strawberry and peach.

I did weigh in too high at Weight Watchers and that cost me $13.00.  But since I was expecting it and prepared it wasn't too bad!  Course, I have discovered that the WW staff never seem to be encouraging during bad weigh-ins - I mean, I told her before I ever got on the scale and she was so "Oh no, <sigh>, etc."  I told her I know what to do to get back on track - and that's what I'm doing.

Still reading on the boards of enhancements coming up to the plan.  I'm guessing either fruit will be limited or will have points again.  Some people just can't control themselves with "free" foods and then want to blame the plan.  But I have read that if the plan is working for you "as is" - you won't need to make the changes.  They have lots of things on sale too - new books will be coming out I'm sure.
