(I have absolutely no idea why some of my pictures are coming in sideways. They look fine when I preview them in my blog post, and they are fine when viewing the post in the website, but I notice viewing from my phone or via email, some are sideways. Hopefully I will figure that out.)
I feel like over the past few days, I’m just eating, then tracking at the end of the day, not really knowing where I’m at for sure until I view my pictures of what I’ve eaten throughout the day, and then I track the points. I’m guesstimating on too many meals too. My meals are not necessarily unhealthy, I’m just not paying close attention to servings sizes, so I end up guessing on their points value at the end of the day. Beer and wine sound good too often.
Last weekend I didn’t track at all for the first time in a very long time, and it showed up on the scale Friday morning. No surprise there.
I felt good about starting a new week on Friday, and was prepared to be successful and track my meals as I ate them. Then Friday afternoon while working the food truck, instead of just eating the fruit and yogurt that I planned, prepared and took, I ate chicken salad too, and guessed on those points. Then I had drinks and snacks with a friend on Friday night for dinner and guessed on those points. I try to guess “high” when I guess.
Saturday morning, I skipped Yoga for no good reason, other than the fact that I knew I’d be doing yard work in the afternoon and that could be my activity. After I mowed, I had two beers.
So basically, there is my confession. I’m in one of those…..”I know I should care more, but I don’t” kinda moods. I have no idea why.
Sunday was a much better day. I hopped out of bed when I really wanted to stay in it, and got in a 3 mile walk. Mike and I had lunch out at one of our favorite little spots where I usually feel the need to have a beer, and I did not. I was more careful with my points for the day.
This week I will get in all 3 of my Jazzercise classes and 1 Yoga class, as planned!!
Nothing much has sounded good lately when I try to meal plan, but I really need to Meal Plan and Snack Plan today if the rest of the week is going to be successful in the food department.
I know as a WW member, or really anyone trying to be conscious of food and exercise and health, I can’t be alone in feeling like I’m in a rut. One minute I’m counting and weighing and being so careful, and the next minute, I’m drinking two beers like it’s my water for the day.
