Mark and I went on a glorious fall afternoon hike yesterday. We hiked steadily--a good pace, uphill and down--for 3 whole hours!
Whew! I was a hiker grandma, for sure!
I was careful with my food choices, and carried a healthy, nutritious, low-points lunch.
Because by the time we got back into civilization, I had waaaay too many rumblies in my tumbly.
After hiking 3 hours, I could certainly justify a small milkshake, right?
When I got home and entered my exercise and my snack into my Weight Watchers points tracker, I ended up regretting my milkshake.
Hiking for 3 hours = 9 activity points
1 small McDonald's vanilla milkshake = 15 food points
Oops. Lesson learned. Next time I'll take a little more (as in, quantity) healthy food with me!
