the moments until the new weight watchers points system is introduced....until then I shall bore you with my chatter!! Ha ha..I just made a funny (as I roll my eyes).
Anyhow...Thanksgiving went well. Looking back I realize that I didn't really have a great plan. The only thing I remember thinking is that "I'm going to eat mainly the things I don't normally get to eat" (Like turkey, green bean casserole, cranberry) and that I wasn't going to gorge myself. And weirdly enough I went into the day with all of my 35 weekly points. Even weirder I left the day with weekly points left over (17 if I remember correctly). Earlier this week I didn't seem too hungry and even had a day where I had to force myself to eat my everyday points. Not normal for me. I think of food ALL THE TIME. ALL THE TIME. SERIOUSLY I'M THAT BAD.
I had no problems with not using all my points today. Did you know that the Denny's Hickory Grilled Chicken sandwich is 25 points? Yeah, me either. I saw "grilled" and thought "how bad could that be?". Needless to say I ate a lot of zero points for dinner and got my veggie intake tonight. Dinner consisted of steamed broccoli, steamed green beans, 5 steamed carrots, a tomato, and half a cucumber. Thankfully that's holding and was pretty satisfying at the time. Still is but I keep thinking about food and the fact that I bought some puppy chow. Why is it that some people always think about food despite being hungry or not? This tells me I am not keeping myself busy enough!
Tomorrow I am going to go for a walk. The temps will be in the 50's which is fine-I'm a hot blooded person and prefer to walk in these temps. I'm also considering going to the 9 am weight watchers meeting. I'm trying to decide if I want to change meeting times. I currently go on Tuesday nights. I like the leader and most of the folks are about my age. But there is a boy in the group that is doing absolutely great at his weight loss journey. Yes I know that males lose weight easier and quicker than gals but it sometimes hurts my ego (especially after a .6 loss) hearing "oh so and so..what milestone are we celebrating today???" grrrrrrrrr.
Oh, which reminds me, I lost .6 pounds Tuesday for a total of 14.6. I am .4 from my first mini goal of 15lbs and 6.4 from my first 10%. It's safe to say that I am mentally struggling. I thank the heavens I have this blog (and you folks) because with out it how would I keep myself accountable and to whom would I be accountable too? Just because someone doesn't comment doesn't mean someone/anyone isn't reading. Which is just fine. I don't need comments. I need a place to vent.
Tonight/Tomorrow I am going to hash out this exercise/get moving calendar. I was reading something a couple weeks back and a gal said that she does things (sometimes) in ten minute increments. Like a power session. Says that her attention span isn't always long nor is she as motivated as she should. I also remember through my readings that if you do something for 10 minutes that you're likely to continue because you find your mojo. We'll see.
Have a great Sunday!
