Yep, that's what I am in right now...a food coma. I have been a bottomless pit today! BUT...there is a bright side...I stayed in my points and I got all my fruits and veggies in. YAY!
Why are some days so much harder than others? Today was a struggle not to eat my arm off! Other days, it's a piece of cake. UGH.
Let's talk about the scales, shall we? I was talking to my BFF today (superjayman) and we were talking about weighing in at the meetings versus at home, morning versus evening, etc... SO, I think this is what I have decided. I know, I know, here I go again changing things up on you guys. I now attend the Monday night meeting where I WI at. There is a Wednesday morning meeting at the same location, but the leader is old and no fun. I THINK I am going to start going to the Monday night meetings (but NOT weighing in) and then go to the Wednesday morning meeting to weigh. Why? Here's why. My scale is a good 2# lower than the scale at WW. So add those 2# to the usual fluctuations of the day from my morning weigh in to my weight the moment I walk out the door (it's only a 5 minute drive to the meeting) so there's another 2# added on. It's frustrating!!! This is why I quit last time b/c I can't seem to lose when I weigh at night. I know it's a dumb excuse, but damn....up one week, down another, up, down--it's NOT fun. And then when I am up I get this attitude "well, f* it, I can count points and be on program and gain, if I'm going to gain I might as well eat some good food" and I head to the local ice cream shop or closest fast food restaurant. ARGH!!!!!!!!!!! I'm still up in the air about it, but dang. Oh and there is one advantage to being lifetime...I don't have to weigh but once a month. :)
Let's review this week's goals and see where I stand today...even after the stuff fest I got into this afternoon.
1) I am going to follow diet coke and zinger's plan and use no more than 15 flex points. This should be fairly easy since all of our meals are planned and I don't have anything coming up this weekend. ZERO Flex Points used today. GO ME
2) fruits & veggies--minimum 5 per day--I got in 9 today!!
3) water--minimum 135 ounces per day--Got in 144 and quit counting.
4) exercise--3 cardio sessions and at least 1 pilates. Went to the gym tonight and did 25 minutes on the elliptical in Glutes mode. OH MY!! It wasn't too hard, but I loved the way it worked my butt! I also did 15 minutes on the bike as kind of a warm up. So 40 minutes total for 3 Activity Points.
Here's my menu from today:
B--Froot Loops (3)
L--Lean Cuisine Panini (7), green beans (0), turkey pastrimi sammich (2)--9
S--can of pineapple (4), 100 cal bag of popcorn (2)--6
D--WW style Philly Cheese Steak sandwiches (5), "Fried" Zucchini (2)--7
25 points used/alloted
3 APs unused--even though I could eat them now, I am not going to.
I think my first mistake today was having froot loops for breakfast. They are for DS, but they sounded so good to me this morning. Doesn't a bowl of childish cereal ever sound good to anyone else!?!? I didn't have my usual oatmeal and fruit and I think that kinda set the tone for the day. It's like if the FIRST thing I put in my mouth in the morning is any kind of sugar, the day goes to pot. And I think I waited too long to eat lunch. I was STARVED by the time I ate so mistake #2.
Tomorrow someone is coming to look at my freezer--it's not freezing the way it should and it's only a year old--so I am tied to the house. I am going to do Pilates and get this place straightened up. Then maybe after dinner, DS and I can go for a walk..well he will ride his bike. It's been so hot here lately we haven't gotten out after dinner to "play". I think that's all from me tonight. Is that enough?? ;) Talk to ya'll tomorrow and have a GREAT OP Wednesday!
