Baked Potato Bar at G/G's

Today we went over to G/G's house (my parents) for after Christmas get-together. Me, Jon the kids, Helen, Ricky and Ric, my parents and David Busch all had a wonderful time.
Food wise I did OK (I brought my own serving of WW zero pt soup) I also had 1/2 of a medium baker with some toppings - no butter :)
But my downfall was when they broke out the ice cream - Slow Churn Bear Track, but it turns out the small serving I had was only 3 pts.

Unfortunately the Adam's peanut butter that I spooned on top was higher in pt's, but it was soooo good.

Here are some pics from today's fun

I don't know why Ricky looks drunk.....

After we were done at G/G's we went home and decided to take a walk (Jon stayed and napped to what he says is the best napping TV - football). It was a bit chilly, had to use my scarf, but it was a good walk after all the food! We walked on what I will from now on refer to "the loop" down 72nd to the road of hotels before hitting Elmers then a left till the road curves around and hits up Thurston, then a left on Thurston and another left on Van Mall drive and then cut across the Chevron parking lot to 51st and then home. It took about 1 1/2 hours, but that was with a stop at Starbucks for house coffee for me and $1 hot ciders for the kids. Without a stop it would take about 45 min. It was a lot of fun and great excercize. I told the kids that when we do the loop in the summer we will have to stop at Jamba Juice :)

After getting home I decided it was time to hit the gym. I had a great workout of 45 min on the elliptical and then I used the weight machines for m arms and legs.

For dinner I made pork chops, leftover cheezy mashers and corn/green beans.
I however had an awsome 1.5 pt dinner for myself

spinach, 1/2 c. whole wheat cous-cous (the 1.5 pts), sauteed yellow and red peppers, zucchini, onion and garlic. It was sooo good and filling!

What a nice way to get the kids out for a walk and enjoy time with them :)

It really was fabulous, Jaime begs to go on walks on the weekends, I made a promise to her that every Sat/Sun that it was not raining out we would do the loop, or some other walk/hike.
