Family Night – Yeah Right

July 14, 2007 at 12:08 am 2 comments

mpj040648200001.jpgA few months ago, my husband and I decided to make Friday nights family night.  We have two young kids, and this basically means we order pizza, get a movie, and hang out.

I started Weight Watchers earlier this week.  I am trying REALLY hard, but I hope this time it really works because I actually have to pay for it, and get weighed by someone other than myself. I always make “scale: excuses; oh the kids moved it so it must be off, or I ate a lot of salt so I am retaining water – and on and on.

I was going to get a pizza from Costco… until I looked at the nutritional value of just one piece. I am allotted 24 points per day for Weight Watchers.  ONE PIECE of this pizza – granted it’s huge – is 18 points!!

Besides that, my husband is at a beer tent in the small town he grew up in. It’s one of those We Love Our Small Town deals; every small town has them. They are fun – if you’re from there. If not it is excruciatingly boring. It is only 20 minutes away but it is another world completely.

So family night was a bit of a flop this week. Oh well. It gives me time to do my  Innaugural Blog so I guess it was meant to be!

    I’ve just started seriously working on my health and weight, too, so I know what you’re going through.

    We used to ahve a pizza night traadtion with our kids. At one point, we made our own. We used our breadmaker to make the dough. We bought large quantities of cheese, tomato sauce, and pepperoni from Sam’s. It didn’t take us long to crank out a homemade pizza. Then, we’d eat it as we watched a movie.

    I wonder if you could do something like that and make one or two pieces of it with lower calorie stuff? Of course, it’s hard to do that when everyone else in the family is chowing down on cheese and such. But, it might work for you.

    That’s a good idea. I keep trying to sneak healthy food into my family’s meals; maybe I can find a whole wheat pizza crust around somewhere? That way I could throw veggies on my piece and make it ‘normal’ for everyone else.
