Too many carbs at dinner

So if you look at what I had for dinner yesterday, you'll see I had too many starches. That let to me diving into a box of Wheat Thins last night. Ugh, just when I was making progress. SO eating more doesn't mean a lot if it's crap. I was up .6 this morning and I totally own it. I will learn and move on. Here's what I did today:

1 1/2 cups Protein Plus Special K (2 pts)
1 cup FF milk (2 pts) = 4 points

1 banana (2 pts) = 2 pts

1 cup Campbell's chicken tortilla soup (2 pts)
1 apple (2 pts)
2 tbsp PB2 (1 pt)
1 WW string cheese (1 pt)
Handful of baby carrots (0 pts) = 6 pts

1 protein granola bar (2 pts)
1 bag steamers veggies (0 pts) = 2 pts

1 cup Campbell's Light soup (0 pts)
4 oz. Jennie O's Lean Turkey burgers (4 pts)
2 corns on the cob (2 pts)
1 glass of wine (2 pts) = 8 pts

1 bag Jolly time 94% popcorn (1 pt)
1 Hershey's chocolate stick (1 pt) = 2 pts

Daily total- 24 pts
Estimated Calories- 1,600

Workout: Ran hills off and on for 3.5 miles (40 minutes) = 4 activity points

Carbs are killer for me too. I can't just eat a FEW crackers. Better to skip them altogether in my case.

You're doing great tho :)

ME too!!!! It's like at dinner, I lose my head and forget about what makes sense :) Metamucil at 5 pm is my friend these days to stay full enough so I don't overdo it during my danger zone time.

I am so with you on the excess carbs causing cravings. And crackers are one of my weaknesses, too. Lately it's those dang Chicken in a Biscuits that are the Devil!
