Day 13: Back on Track!

2 Mar

I love a cheat day – but I also always love getting back on track.  Today I did a small bit of exercise – 10 minutes on the recumbent bike.  I’m anxious for the weather to warm up a bit – because that’s where I love to exercise.  Outdoors walking!  It’d be great to mix it up with the bike occasionally.

So here’s how I did:

Breakfast: None.  So terrible, have to stop this!

Lunch & Snack: Four pieces of sushi – california roll. (15 points)  Not 100% sure the points are right, as I pulled it from what’s stored in the Weight Watchers system.  I’m guessing they included white rice – mine was made with brown rice.

Dinner: Beef stir fry served over spinach fettuccine. (16 points)

Very little snacking was done today – I think I had a few pretzel nibblers which were 3 points.  Overall, a good day!

A Few Steps Forward … A Few Steps Back

27 Feb

Today marks day 10 back on the plan.  And aside from day 1, this is the hardest day I’ve faced.  I’m stressed about a few things and missing the thing that used to help me — food.

I’ve not fallen off the plan – I still have one point remaining at the end of the day.  But I want to eat more.  And saying “no” is really hard.  Not making a sandwich.  Not eating some Skittles (which is strange for me regardless, because I don’t have a sweet tooth).

I know I’ll get through today and tomorrow will be a new day.  But this has been one of those days where I just want to say “the hell with this” and quit Weight Watchers.

I’m thankful I have this blog and that people are reading it.  It really does help keep me accountable.  Although it’s 100% fine when we have stumbles along our journey, I know I’d hate coming here and blogging about how terribly I had just blown my points for the day.  So if nothing else – that helped keep me in line today.

A quick run down of big meals:

Breakfast: Apple with 2 tbsps of reduced fat peanut butter (5 points)

Lunch: Smart Ones Macaroni and Cheese (7 points)

Dinner: Potato and Cheddar Soup (10 points)

Day 9 – Losing Some Momentum

26 Feb

Today was the first time since I’ve been back on Weight Watchers that I wanted desperately to not be on it.  It was a day where I was sick of counting points, sick of monitoring and being aware of everything I ate.  Where I just wanted to run out and get some greasy fast food.  Terrible – I know.

If there’s any silver lining, it’s that I didn’t do it.  I didn’t cave.  Sure, I went through all my points for the day.  But I didn’t go over.  I still have 49 extra points for the week and 7 activity points that I could use.  But I won’t.

Much snacking was done, but I’ll save the boring-ness of sharing each and every thing I nibbled on.  Here are the three big meals:

Breakfast: None, again.  I have to stop doing this!

Lunch: Lean Cuisine Swedish Meatballs (7 points)

Dinner: Large Salad (9 points)

Clearly I did A LOT of nibbling through the day.  My big meals totaled 16 points which left me with 27 points for snacking.

Oh well, Wednesday is a new day and I hope to be better.  My goal is to be under 300 pounds come Sunday’s weigh in.

 

Day 8 – A Little of This, A Little of That

25 Feb

Day 8 was very busy – so I didn’t eat breakfast like I should have.  Had a bigger lunch and a small dinner.  Snacks included sourdough pretzel nibblers (16 pieces = 3 points), some weight watchers ice cream and popcorn.

So here’s the breakdown:

Breakfast: Bad again, I skipped it.

Lunch: Homemade salad with lettuce, cucumber, chick peas, bacon bits, fat-free shredded cheese and a red wine vinagrette dressing. (9 points)

Dinner: Lean Cuisine Swedish Meatballs (8 points)
