Blogger is ticking me off!

I can't post a comment when I want, can't get to certain people's blogs. It's frustrating! Then they were down for a good while yesterday. ARGH!!!

Okay, on to yesterday. It was a food fest. It wasn't all bad, but I didn't make the best possible choices at all times. I made my target points on Wendie, so it wasn't horrible, but better choices could have been made. I don't know why I have been so tired this week. Last night, again I was asleep before 10. That's unheard of for me lately! Hopefully I can shake this tiredness. I am going to hit the gym today...even though I don't feel 100%. I have a tickle at the back of my throat, but it's not horrid. I can't be sick! I just can't! I won't accept it, I won't.

Here's my menu from yesterday:

B--Eggbeaters on english muffin with cheese--4
B--small banana--1
S--100 calorie pecan twirl--2
L--sandwich with cheese--4
L--Green beans--0
S--yogurt creme pie--2
S--triscuits and chicken salad--4
D--Chicken salad sandwich--5
D--green beans
D--Schwan's quick fries--7

29/29 per Wendie guidelines
148 ounces of water

1)Water--135 ounces minimum--check
2)Fruits and veggies--5 per day--only got in 4 yesterday :(
3)Exercise--3 days of some kind at least 2 cardio sessions.--nada
4)Wendie--stick to her like white on rice--check

Today will be a better day! I am going to have to cut out those darn fries. They are so good, but man they make my weight go up the next day. Almost 2# today. I want to see the scale go down every day!

I have been looking at quite a few websites (thank you swizzlepop!) that tell you how many calories you need to lose/maintain, how many you burn while you sleep, etc... I am thinking I need to eat more. I am going to continue this week on Wendie and see how WI goes on Monday. I may up my points next week. I should look at my calories too, but man that seems like a lot of work! We'll see. To me, points are just so much easier!

That's it for me for now. Have a great OP Thursday! (Really? It's Thursday already!??!?! This week has gone so fast!!) :)

You did just fine yesterday, I know what you mean though when it feels like even though the points were right on, the food itself didn't feel healthy. It will work itself out in the end though.

I've been looking at some of the websited swizzle has posted and I can't believe how high the calories are I should be eating, almost 3000 and I am currently getting in about 1300/day. Eekk, no wonder it's been a struggle to loose anything. I want to try and track calories as well, but it will have to wait until next week.

Okay, you caught me...I did weigh in yesterday, it wasn't good. I started eating "normal" though, trying to get some red meat and carbs into my diet so I have plenty of energy for the weekend. I know i am retaining water now and the scale was up another lb. this morning. I am not going to worry about what the scale says until Monday, too much else to worry about. I know that I am eating healthy so everything will work out in the end.
I am going to miss hearing from everyone this weekend :(

Don't beat yourself up over choices made yesterday - you stayed within points and that's a great NSV!

I don't know if you've ever tried it, but I use this product called "Airborne" and it really helps. It has all sorts of vitamins in it that boosts your immune system and either helps to prevent you from catching something or it helps you get over it much quicker. And it's not that expensive - and cheaper at the Dollar Store than it is at Wal-Mart. (at least around here) My coworker has 3 kids and SWEARS by this stuff.

Hope you have a great day!

I'd try and stick to this wendie plan for a couple weeks before making any more changes, it takes awhile for your body to adjust I think. Now about those fries, did you eat 2 lbs of fries? If not, then you know you didn't "really" gain 2 lbs from them. It's probably that they were salty and it's a bit of water.
