Week 16: Day 3

Hey guys, I needed a break for a few days to regroup. I thought about posting about the last two days, but with being sick and getting some bad news- it would just be wallowing at this point. So- a new day- back to work this morning after my 6 consecutive sleep cycles yesterday!

I was pretty groggy this morning b/c the NyQuil hadn't completely worn off. I had a slimfast for 4pts for breakfast.

I graded papers all work day and finally got one set of grades out, thank goodness. I breaked for lunch and had a 5pt Santa Fe Style Salad with grilled chicken.

After lunch, more grading. Ugh. But I did snack on 2pts of pretzel sticks! Yum!

When Matt and I got home from work I had 4pts of Kettle Chips- just so you know- that's only 16 plus a few crumbs. Sad :( And I'm going to break some more bad news to you- Kettle chips are not the food of champions- I did my C25K W5D2 after eating these and let's just say that didn't go over great. +3 activity pts.

After my run, I came home for a quick shower and then made some chili for dinna. I meant to make this last week...that didn't happen. Then I meant to make it Monday...that didn't happen...are you starting to see a pattern with how my week has gone? It isn't just the chili that keeps getting thrown on the back burner.

Let me just say I did not NOT NOT  want to go to the gym today. I also did not want to cook chili. I also didn't want to eat salad for lunch...Sometimes being healthy feels empowering and you're happy you're doing it, but right now is not one of those times for me. I am grudgingly doing what I am supposed to until it starts to come easier again. Its times like these that can get you off track from your goals, so like I said earlier- I'm just going to keep on keeping on.

One helpful thing I heard in the meeting Monday (when I was up +.8 lbs) was the quote "Don't sacrifice what you want for what you want right now." I'm just going to keep that in mind.

So on the menu tonight was a chili potato 8pts for dinner and a diet sunkist 0pts- haven't had one of those in a while!

For the rest of the night- its Cougar Town with Chris, Matt, Bear and Harley and then some more studying. I'll have a glass of wine later too for 2pts. Aaaand then some ice cream 3pts.

Points: 28/24
Weekly Allowance Points: 31 left/35 weekly
Activity Points Earned: 3 today/6 week
Exercise: C25K W5D2
Weekly Weight Loss: +.8 lbs / 23.8 lbs total

Hope to see less of each other next time!


  1. That salad looks divine. So I thought I would give you a heads up about Slim Fast. I was doing WW and would have slim fast in the morning. I ended up gaining weight because of it. Apparently your body doesn't break it down, and it just retains it. I was devastated and was going through crazy breakdowns. It might be different for you... but I just thought I would share that with you.



Love to hear from you guys!
