I packed my lunch last night, and in it, I included two Weight Watchers mini peanut butter bliss bars.

A single bar is about half the size of a normal candy bar–three inches long, two inches wide. Ish. This would have accounted for 4 Weight Watchers points. I put them, and an apple, two bananas, a turkey sandwich and some cottage cheese in my lunch bag, and sealed it up for today.

I tried to watch TV after I packed up said lunch (until DH turned on a crummy football video game…) but just got up to brush my teeth and get ready for bed instead. Somewhere in the five steps from the couch to the hallway it dawned on me: I could spend those 4 points elsewhere.

Sure, I’d eat the peanut butter bar (I mean..it’s half creamy peanut butter, half chocolate brownie. What’s not to love?). But I decided I wanted to use the 4 points on this:

A huge honkin’ salad with Red wine vinaigrette salad dressing on top.

There’s something to be said for one positive change leading to another!
