+3.0 lbs tonight
This just really sucks. I just don't seem to be caring like I should. During the day, I am totally on plan. In the morning, I mix up a smoothie with the WW smoothie mix, maybe 2 ounces of skim milk and some frozen fruit (I count it as 2 pts). Later on in the morning I have my oatmeal, with either cinnamon or vanilla extract in it. I have a Coke Zero in the morning, too. But that's 0 pts. Today I had 2 WW bars at different times, a 4 pt Smart One, a 1pt yogurt and a 1 pt sandwich thin at lunch. Then I had an orange and an apple. So that comes to 14 points already. Which is fine. 2 meals & a bunch of snacks. Once I get home is what kills me. I feel like I just need to graze all evening and it's SO hard to control myself.
This past weekend didn't help. I went to a wedding Saturday and dinner was served, so at least my portions were controlled. But then I don't even know how many Bud Light's I had. 2 points a pop right there. Then we took Mom out to breakfast for Mother's Day Sunday at Big Boy. The breakfast bar destroyed me. Cheesy scrambled eggs, hash browns, biscuits & gravy, bacon and oh yeah, a small plate of fruit. At least I didn't force myself to eat the stuff that didn't taste good. The sausage patties were downright nasty & I didn't like the quiche thing, what ever it was. It had peppers & peas I don't know what else. PASS! The green peppers drowned out the taste of everything else anyway.
So what can I do? I am going to refresh my memory of the filling foods & make my grocery list while I'm looking at it. I need to get myself back on the message boards, since I've been skipping so many meetings. I need to blog more often, since it keeps me accountable, being able to see exactly what it is that I'm doing right and/or wrong. I've started following David Kirchhoff's blog - he's the CEO of Weight Watcher's International & he doesn't blog as the CEO, but as a member. He's actually pretty funny, so it's neat to read.
It was funny that I was going to do a quick 27 fling boogie in the girl's room last night, so I changed out of work clothes and put on sweats. As I was putting on my tennies (NOT gonna go in her room barefoot - eew!), Jack got all excited - he thought we were going for a walk. So I did 20 minutes in her room and took out a full garbage bag to the dumpster. Then I took him for a walk around the park. Win/win !!
I'll be back to update as the week goes on.
