Something to chew on

Back in the Swing of Things

I didn't weigh this Saturday, at least not on an official WW scale. But I did weigh when I got up that morning on our bathroom scale, and even after my days of traveling and eating out, I was down about a pound. I was tired and we had plans to go to the lake with friends, so I just couldn't/didn't drag myself to the meeting.

I plan to get myself back into counting points this week and officially weigh again this coming Saturday. It's been a good start to the week...

Breakfast: Smart Ones muffin: 4 points
yogurt smoothie: 1 point

Mid-morning snack: banana: 2 points

Lunch: soup: 2 points
crackers: 2 points
Kudos: 2 points

Afternoon snack: wrap with honey: 2 points

Dinner: Well, it was a good start to the week until dinner. Cole wasn't too keen on the two suggestions I had for cooking dinner here at the house, and I was really hungry for chips and salsa. So we loaded up the truck and headed to Tin Star in West Lake. I had a grilled chicken taco in a lettuce cup instead of a tortilla, with rice and black beans on the side. "Not bad," you may be thinking, and it wasn't. Until the 113 chips I had get counted in. Tomorrow is another day. AND, I'm starting tomorrow at the dentist, which always makes me careful of what I put in my mouth. At least for a few hours...

  • I hope you were guessing when you said, "113 chips," instead of that meaning that you counted them. :)

    My boot camp guru I think has a really healthy attitude toward food: That you should eat well [and exercise] much of the time, but not to the point where it rules your life. That each person has to find the right point -- some can take the weekend off, or whatever -- but that you must be happy with yourself, and dedicated to being healthy.

    I'm rambling.... :)

  • hehe... not even guessing, just exaggerating. I was hungry for chips and salsa.

    And I totally believe in that "most of the time" living. I just have to be sure my two days of eating freely (well, more free than the other five days), don't totally erase those five good days.
