Right Back In the Game!

February 21, 2014

I have to admit, the first day back from vacation and spending most of the day at home, it was hard to not eat all day. Sometimes those days I spend at home getting stuff done around the house, I really struggle to not visit the pantry and fridge in between each thing I’m trying to get done. I promised myself that when I got up Thursday morning, that I would be diligent about counting points and keeping within my points range. I know when I go to my Weight Watchers meeting this morning, that my weight is going to be in the 160’s. I’d like to be one of those people that goes on vacation expecting to maintain my weight, but I’m not, and I know this. I know that when I go on vacation to an all inclusive resort for one full week, I am going to enjoy my food and beverages without counting points. Gaining weight on vacation is the price I pay for the choices that I made, and I know this. Facts are facts. But now I’m prepared to get right back in the game. 

Here is the successful day that I had yesterday!


Egg White Omelet with Veggies and Cheese, Grapes

Un-Pictured Coffee with Skim Milk




HyVee Salad Bar

Mixed Greens, Peppers, Edamame, Chicken, Taco Meat

Kidney Beans, Salsa, Sour Cream








The Simplest Spaghetti 


Weight Watcher’s Points Plus

I can eat 26 PPV a day.

I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise, and eat them if I choose.

I have an allowance of 49 extra points that I can dip into throughout the week if I choose.

I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.

I’ll do it after we chat and have dinner. THREE EPISODES OF AMERICAN IDOL TO WATCH????? I’ll do it right after we watch those. 10:30??? I’ll do it TWICE tomorrow. I suck.

    I KNOW in my head, that exercising first thing in the morning is the thing to do! One day, I’ll actually do that!! I mean, it’s not rocket science, right?


  2. I love your attitude about vacation- I think so many people don’t experience the local food and culture because they are so obsessed with “maintaining”. Live a little, then get back at it!

    As for putting off working out – I’m the PRO at that. That’s why I work out in the morning before anything else. Then there are LITERALLY no excuses. 🙂

    High five for a great weekend!
