More is Better. Mon. W35.

I ran errands all morning for LearningRx and skipped breakfast. I'm not really a breakfast person and didn't eat breakfast much during college. I more or less do it out of habit and "because you're supposed to" rather than out of hunger. The theory that breakfast "jump starts your metabolism" isn't true, but I still don't like missing it more than a day a week. It feels like I'm doing something taboo.

I started in on my thesis mid day. Bear and I had lunch outside which was nice. I love that the weather is cooling off. Its running weather! I had a smart ones ravioli for 5pts

Outside on the porch
Bear thought he would get some. He was mistaken.
Today, and for several days recently I have noticed I've had a case of the "If some is good, then more is better"s. I bought sunchips at Sam's and found myself measuring out a portion 2pts...and then another 2pts...and then 1/2 another 1pt...I wasn't even hungry after lunch! 

The thesis writing went alright. I have a work station set up at home that is working for me right now so I feel good about working at home. I didn't get on hulu all day, which is a first!!
My work station- and new planner with deadlines for myself. 
After picking Matt up from work, I went to my Weight Watchers meeting. I had 2 nilla wafters with a little peanut butter before it.
I love these!

 We talked about the skill of asking for help when you need it. I think I'm pretty good at doing this with weight loss and exercise since I ask all of you for help all the time! So I tried to think about the concept for other areas of my life. 

PS- there are two FOOLS who have joined my Monday night ww meeting. They love talking about themselves and monopolizing conversation with tips and tricks for losing weight. Ummm...I'm just going to say, I'm sorry, but if you haven't lost any weight and have been going to meetings longer than me, I don't want to know your tips and tricks. They obviously suck. This is mean, but come on! There are other people in the meeting who don't have loud mouths and who I can learn from. Seriously, one woman during the "celebrations" part decided to take 5 mins (of a 30 min meeting) to tell the group she had gained .6lbs and was happy it wasn't more. She proceeded to talk about how she's about to marry her 2nd husband yadda yadda...umm this is a weight loss meeting. Shut up. I would like to hear what Kathy (our leader) planned to talk about instead of what none of your friends will listen to.

On a lighter note, I am down another 1.6 lbs bringing the running total to -32.2 lbs. Hooray. At the meeting, all of the snack bars were on sale so I picked up a box of the 1pt peanut butter ones. When I got home, Matt had made dinner! Love him. He made more chicken veggie orzo, but this time he added roasted asparagus. It was delicious. I had a cup and a half 8pts

After dinner, I decided to try the peanut butter bars 1pt. They were an EPIC FAIL. 1. They were a little melty 2. The peanut butter part tasted like the crappy halloween candy in the orange and black wax paper wrappers and 3. It made my tummy hurt. Gross.
Avoid at all costs...even if they are on sale.
So along with the more is better theme, I drowned my violated tongue in 2 cans of diet dr pepper 0pts but lots of sodium, and some baked tortilla chips and guacamole 5pts. It was not a high point for me. My tum tum hurts now.

Moral of the story: More is not always better.

I did however enjoy the rest of the night working on our corn hole set. Its shaping up, but there's still a lot to be done. I want to finish before the game against Alabama this Saturday. 
Adding Razorback Red
Bear thought he would help
Taking up the breakfast table. 
I'm going to round out the night reading and writing some more on my thesis as I feel moved (hah).

Points: 26/23
Weekly Allowance Points: 32/35 remaining
Exercise: nadda
Weekly Activity Points: 0/0
Weekly Weight Loss: -1.6 lbs / -32.2 total

Hope to see less of each other next time!


  1. I am embarrassed to say that I ate 2 fried bologna sandwiches today. That was all. I had a bad sore throat and nothing else tastes good. I am still dropping weight. I think the total is 21 pounds. I try to follow portion control and to eat for vegetables.

  2. Corn Hole is the same as bag toss. We have to cut 6" holes in the boards still. Its the game where you try and toss the bags into the holes.

  3. I've had people like that in my ww meetings before! Don't worry, they usually don't stick around too long! ;)

    Your game is looking great! Can't wait to see the finished product.


Love to hear from you guys!
