Week 11: Day 1

Monday was back to work. I was tired basically all day, but it was fine. I had Bodo's for breakfast. I had an egg white, ham and cheese bagle for 15pts+. No picture.

I had a mint for 1pt+.

I had steamed broccoli with a little cheese for lunch for 1pts+.

I went to my WW meeting very late. I missed most of the meeting because I had to work late, but I still went. I was up 3.2 lbs. oof. Back to work today!

I had a mediteranean salad for dinner with bread for 7pts+.

I stole a few of Matt's chips for 1pts+.

I had 1/2 a skinny cow cookies and cream bar for 1pt+.

Week 10: Thanksgiving

Matt and I went up to visit family for Thanksgiving. It was a lot of fun, and I didn't track while I was gone. I sat down this morning and estimated what I had. I was probably better than I might have been in the past over a holiday, but after adding everything up- its not going to be a surprise when I am up tonight at weigh in. After estimating totals for all of my points, I used 83/45 of my weekly points! Wowza. I found a lot of the totals surprising because I thought I did pretty well about moderating myself...I hardly ate a whole piece of anything..I could have a bite of pie and be done- or just a half a cookie, etc. I didn't want to miss any of the Thanksgiving and wedding once a year dishes. But those bites apparently add up...and from my graph of pts consumption from WW, I think once I got off track, I just stayed there.

Although I went over, and that certainly wasn't my intention, I did make some progress toward my goals and staying focused while I was gone. I ran two days I was gone, and made an effort to get outside and walk on the other days, so I earned 17 activity pts! The most yet. More importantly than my activity pts was the fact that I could jog 3 miles without stopping, and really without being very tired. My muscles were soar all week from the hike, but I can tell I'm getting stronger. 

So as much as I am not looking forward to weighing in today, I am ready to be back on track!

Week 10: Day 2

Tuesday was a doozie. Ten hour days leading up to the holidays are killing me, yo. I had an omlet for breakfast for 3pts+.

Matt and I went to Sticks for lunch to discuss our travel and prep plans. I had chicken marsala soup (~1/2 serving), pita bread, and hummus for ~14pts+.

For dinner, I had about 1/4 - 1/3 of this salad for 2pts+.

I rushed through packing and stuffing these bad boys so that I could drop bear off at Chris's and have a few beers before bed. I had 3 light beers for 11pts+.

Week 10: Day 1

Monday was a long, but pretty good day. I had a 3pts+ omlet for breakfast.

I had fettuccini alfredo for lunch for 6pts+.
I had a Mediterranean salad from Brixx for dinner (with all of the Mediterranean food I've been eating, I'm thinking Greece could be a good retirement locale.)  for 3pts+ with bread 3pts+ and a small slice of thin crust pizza 4pts+.

I went to my WW meeting after work and weighed in at 161.2 lbs for a loss of -1.0 lbs. At 5'5", I am closing in on a healthy weight. ~10 lbs away! Maybe I can get there by New Years?? The meeting topic was about managing stress, so it was good for me to listen to the strategies we can use to combat it- especially right before vacations- I find I'm more stressed around vacation time than any other because I worry about work and what I'm missing! It doesn't really make sense, vacation = relaxation, work = stress. 

I spent the rest of the night making baby shower invitations. My best friend is due in February and our girl group is throwing her a shower over the Christmas holidays.

embossed owls! These took for. ev. er. to make. gracious.
