Death to Trail Mix!

I was having a good beginning to the week yesterday (still am actually!). I took a vinyasa flow yoga class last night, which usually kicks my bum. The instructor was sick, so we had more of a restorative yoga class. Timing of that was good, since my back/leg have been acting up, so restorative yoga was good for me. Usually after yoga, I train with my trainer for an additional hour. But since my trainer was sick (she's the yoga instructor too) we canceled training and I worked out on my own for an additional 30 minutes of cardio. This was also good since I was able to judge the pain in my leg and not go as hard as usual.
When I got home I made dinner as usual. I'm usually so hungry from the gym that I eat a can of green beans right away to calm the rumbles in my tummy! Then while I eat the beans, I bake a chicken breast and some rice and eat those too. But I was still ravenous after eating my dinner! I went looking for something delicious and ran head first into a bag of trail mix.
How trail mix is so bad for you, I simply cannot understand. Actually, I guess I can understand but I chose to turn a blind eye to it. All the parts are pretty decent but the sum of all the parts is a ton of points! Some raisins, some peanuts, some almonds, a cashew here and there. But 1/4 cup is 4 points. Pretty sure I ate at least 1 full cup! I had to guestimate since I just grabbed handfuls out of the bad. 1 full cup equals 16 points I had NOT planned on eating last night. Of course I had the points to cover it, and its not a huge deal, but I felt very cheated out of 16 points last night! It takes a full 2 hours of training with a personal trainer to equal that pointage!
This morning, after Michael left for work, I threw the trail mix away in the garbage can outside so he won't know I wasted food and threw it away, lol! I simply can't have it in the house. Here's to a world without trail mix!
