My weigh-in this week was only so-so. I had another tiny gain (0.2 pounds) but after having two weeks of tiny gains, it definitely makes me re-evaluate my focus. My goal for this week is as follows:
And, just two days in I’ve already had to remind myself that honest tracking doesn’t mean I need to be miserable and not eat something I am craving. It just means that I have to be honest in my tracking even if it is high in points. I’m happy to report that I had a successful afternoon of re-directing my food thoughts and I’m feeling super motivated today.
I had been thinking about having lunch at Costa Vida after my WW meeting and was pre-planning my other meals around the high point lunch. After I finished visiting with my leader Donna and the receptionist Echo, I wasn’t feeling super hungry so decided to just drive home and fix something to eat there. I had to stop into the Target on Chinden and once I left there I started to feel really hungry. Costa Vida was again on the table for lunch, however, I knew going home and fixing myself a lower point meal would be the best decision. So, home I went. And I ate a very yummy 8 point breakfast of my usual potatoes, pepper, chicken sausage, and eggs.
I also picked up some lunch meat at Target (thank goodness for a decent grocery sections as it saved me from thinking up a meal idea) and made a sandwich for one of my meals and I have chicken and frozen veggies for my second meal. Lastly, I’ve got yogurt and fruit if I need something before I go to bed. I’ve also packed my workout clothes so I can get in a workout after my shift.
Our meeting topic today was about spring and I’m just as anxious as the rest of you for warmer weather. We are also starting a new charm challenge that if you attend four of six meetings you get a cute little spring charm. I’m super excited! I love my WW bling…this you all know!
