Each new week for me (in Weight Watcher World) starts on Friday. This can sometimes make Wednesday and Thursday difficult, if Monday and Tuesday didn’t go so well. In theory, if Monday and Tuesday don’t go so well, one would think one would make the best of Wednesday and Thursday, so Friday at the scale goes well, and that makes your week end well, right? But on occasion, Wednesday and Thursday become “screw it” days, because you get to start fresh on Friday! Now, the latter is certainly not the recommended way of Weight Watcher living, or any other kind of living, for that matter. But in attending WW meetings on a regular basis, i have found that this can be an all too common practice.
Today I ended my week of drinks and carbs, and got to start fresh. There is definitely a mental thing going on that says …..”Today is a new day”, because the cravings are gone and I am looking forward to Bootcamp in the morning. Today, I get the opportunity to plan and begin my week of what’s going to make me feel good about myself when I wake up the next Friday morning. Today’s Friday was all about actually seeing the finish line, and speeding up to cross it.
I went to Starbucks to reflect……. 🙂
While reflecting, I enjoyed a nonfat Misto and a Perfect Oatmeal!
I only had a banana for breakfast, and since it was now 1:30 pm, I added half of all the goodies to my oatmeal. Half of the package of dried fruit, and half of the package of nuts, a sweetener and some cinnamon. (Oatmeal 6 PPV)
Later in the afternoon, I finished off a little leftover salad. 3 PPV
Dinner was out at Sunset Grill, and the weather outside on the patio in the shade was surprisingly pleasant. Hawaiian Skewers with chicken, and a cup of Chicken Tortilla Soup, and of course, lots and lots of water!
Refresh…I can eat 26 points a day.
