I had this great plan for yesterday.
Drink lots of water.
Sometimes the first few days after a vacation, no matter how short it is, can be really tough. I have a hard time getting back into writing down what I am eating and getting back to my regular routine. I’m not trying to make any excuses. I just suck at it.
Breakfast and lunch went well. Then I ran a few errands, one of which included picking up a few groceries. I picked up a variety of almonds and nuts.
These are great snack foods, but sometimes Trigger Foods for me! Um, like yesterday!!! I just couldn’t seem to stay out of them. By the end of the afternoon, I knew I had no idea how many points I had eaten and I decided not to eat dinner. I probably wouldn’t be hungry anyhow. Then I made all sorts of excuses to not get out and walk. Urg. Oh, and then I ate dinner anyhow.
Today? No mistakes!!!!
Yesterday……well, here you go.
Refresh…I can eat 26 points a day.
I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise, and eat them if I choose.
I have an allowance of 49 points that I can dip into if I chose.
I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.
The food I ate and it’s PPV
Breakfast = Light English Muffin, Pumpkin Butter, 5 Egg Whites, Coffee with Skim Milk (6)
Lunch = Salad Bar (8)
Snack = Almonds…..Several Almonds…….????
Dinner = Chicken Breast, Brown Rice, Zucchini, Mushrooms (10)
Total = ???????????
Today’s Exercise = none
How many glasses of water I drank today = 12
Activity Points Earned Today = 0
Activity Points Earned This Week = 0
Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 0
Alcohol consumption = none
I love this. So appropriate. I’ve fallen several times through this journey, and it will happen again. I ALWAYS get back up, and I WILL win this.
