WW Relief

The thing I really love about weight watchers is that it lets you make mistakes. Not only that, it gives you a safety net to rely on in case of emergency. Last night I had a girls night which ended up being just two of us. That was all we needed apparently because I had a fabulous time hanging out with Heather. After my second glass of Sake, I kind of lost my motivation to update my food tracker. I was plenty motivated, however, to walk to the cute little bar across the street where I had beer and jalapeno poppers and french fries.

This brings me back to my relief in what weight watchers allows me to do. I've been pretty good about tracking what I eat each day and I've started getting used to the portions and the sorts of foods that are more conducive to the point system. I got up this morning, made one of my breakfasts that I know what I'm eating, and sat down to assess the damage from my night of debauchery. It's actually not so bad. Weight watchers gives you set amount of daily points and then gives you 35 a week to use at your leisure. I didn't exactly count the mess I made Saturday, so I had a bunch left of my weekly points. So I'm right within my reasonable food limits even with a night like I had. Woo!

It's kind of nice to see that the more you do the program, the easier it is to stay pretty good on it. Even when you are being bad. Up to this point I haven't really done more than a week at a time where I've been tracking everything I eat and staying on program. Tomorrow will be two weeks and I see the difference already in how much better I am at it. I'm almost looking forward to another week!

I also have great hopes for Saturday. We're having a girls night to make up for the lack of multiple girls tonight and I saved all the food I was going to make. This means that I'm in control of what there is to eat all day Saturday! So far I have plans for lowfat baked jalapeno poppers, baked sweet potato wedges, hummus with vegetables to dip and rice crackers, little smokies, and a kale salad that I'm excited to try to make. I am going to do so good Saturday!

  1. Yay - I love the positivity! Have a fun time Saturday. I'm having a girl's day vs. your girl's night. A day of shopping, lunch and more shopping. I also bought an elliptical machine last night. SO excited about that. How are you doing with your walks? It's probably easier to go on them when it's 60 degrees and crisp out, vs. 95 degrees. Have a good rest of the week!

Round 2 Day 16

I wish this post had as much positive enthusiasm as the last, but it's been kind of a difficult week. I woke up this morning with a mild headache feeling like I had a hangover. I couldn't think straight and  just felt worn out. I put in for a sub for the morning and went back to bed. After some cold brew and Tylenol I forced myself to teach my afternoon classes, but I'm tired and still feel the pressure on my skull.

Yesterday I woke up in a rage. Rage over the grocery shopping I spent the ENTIRE weekend trying to take care of. Rage over the food I couldn't eat to calm the rage. Rage over how I can't control anyone but myself. Rage over the stupidly over-positive encouraging crap in the day-to-day book I've been using. Shut up book! I'm mad and I want to be mad! I don't want to be told how I can fix it! I just want to be mad!

These seem to be the monologues that keep going around and around in my head.

Round 2 - Day 1

Happy New Year! I am so relieved to see 2017 come to a close. It was a long, tough, satisfying year and I am happy to be done. I think the two things that were the most life changing last year were moving into our new house and the first Whole30 I completed.

It's been four months since I finished my first Whole30. I remember my delightful barista, Kristina, saying "It's so hard, but so worth it." And I couldn't describe it better. I have tried so many things to lose weight and keep it off and nothing has ever permeated my consciousness like this has. I think about what I'm eating basically always. I haven't gained any of the weight back that I lost even though I haven't considered myself on a diet since September. I am also hyper-aware of how foods affect me.

December was sort of a free-fall. We went to Disneyland and I made the conscious decision to enjoy myself. Disneyland is already a sugar wonderland most of the year, but add in the Christmas them…
