I tried

After running this morning, I decided to jump on the Wii Fit. Well, not truly jump on it. That would have upset the little person that goes Ommmfffff when I get on now. Anyway...I did an additional 21 minutes of Wii Fit, mostly Hula Hoop and running. My calves are not liking me still. Afterwards, grabbed a shower so hubby and I could go out shopping. Yea!

Once our shopping expedition was complete (with me purchasing new headphones for my shuffle so I can walk at lunch), we headed to one of our favorite restaurants - Cobblestones. Love it! We started out with a lovely crudite platter of cucumber, carrots, celery, and broccoli with Ranch dressing (not sure if it was light or not, doubting it). I also ordered a Sam Adams Light. I like Sam Adams beer and I thought I'd give it a try. It was good, in case you are wondering. Dinner was sweet potato fries with honey and half a veggie burger, both were delicious. The best sweet potato fries they've made in a long time! Then, we caved and had dessert. S'Mores rolls. Oh my. So worth it! They were just yummy! Small egg roll looking things with chocolate and marshmellow in them, with vanilla ice cream and raspberry drizzle. Drool...

Now, here's what I did right - light beer, veggies for appetizer, and a veggie burger. What I did wrong - light beer and dessert. Now, you may be wondering, how does light beer get on the right and wrong list? Well, let me tell you. I know that Miller Light has 100 calories, but I wasn't sure how many Sam Adams had. I decided to try it, thinking it would be comparable. Nope. 119 calories are in a Sam Adams Light, which is 40 calories less than their original. But that's not the point. I had 19 calories I didn't need to have, all because I went with something I wasn't sure about. Ugh. The moral of the story - stick to Miller Light when drinking beer. LOL!
