Friends, Staying up late, and Sunshine

Brian's friend came over about 6pm last night and stayed over until 7:30 am but that is okay. I like this friend. I think he has a good head on his shoulders despite his circumstances.

This friend also offered to take us out for a meal and of course, since it was 4:30 AM when we went out, that left us at one of my favorite haunts, Steak and Shake.

Normally what I get there is like Points OVERLOAD because that place is just so fatty. I mean, I swore off S&S when I got on WW just because of how ridiculously 'expensive' it is with points values

Bacon Double Cheeseburger- 13 Points+ with 480 calories, 28g fat, 31g carbs, fiber <1g (I input 0), 25g protein.

Regular order of cheese fries- 16 Points+ with 610 calories, 34g fat, 67 g carbs, 6g fiber, 10g protein.

Which is to say, a lot.

This time I ordered something smaller (cheaper too) but it was still a lot of points.

Chili Mac- which is spaghetti noodles topped with beef chili. 23 Points+ (less than the burger and fries) and I was only able to eat about half of it. So that was 11 points. I tracked it, don't worry.

I was surprised that I did not eat it all, as I did not eat a whole lot yesterday at all.

As we were leaving I saw that they had bacon cheese fries. My mouth watered. I will not be stepping back there for a long long while.

I'm exhausted. I went to bed at 7:30 and had to get up at 1 to do some work but now I am able to go back to bed for a nap. Just thought I would share my little victory.

Its a sunny 76 degrees out side which is fabulous... except I will be missing it all. Sleeping the day away. We actually had to turn on our A/C today! hahah


  1. Hope you have a great Sunday! :)

  2. great nsv! i would have eaten the whole thing since i love past SO MUCH!

  3. Cheese fries are my nemesis. It's easier if I just steer clear of places like that. ;) Way to count it!

  4. Sounds like avoiding this place is a smart move! Good job on staying away from the REALLY bad stuff!
    Sleep deprivation makes ya keep weight on too. Maybe a new goal could be getting a regular sleep schedule going? You'd probably drop a few lbs without much work!
