I don't know what my problem was yesterday or really lately. I think maybe emotions, stress and possibly depression trying to creep in. I don't know what my deal is but whatever it is I got to push through it and pick myself up and get cooking and moving.
I need to get in the habit of prepping my
food the night before and getting my butt to the gym everyday (when I say every
day I mean 4-5 times a week).
I know this, I've been known
this... now I just have to figure out a way to turn cooking into a habit and
awaken my gym habit up.
Sunday, I could have easily prepped my
food for Monday. I have no excuses.
I over ate yesterday and
didn't exercise. I got home, laid down and called it a night. Another thing I
need to work on is a schedule. During the week I wake up in the morning, get
dressed like a bat out of hell and run to make it to the bus stop by 6:05 or
7:10 depending of what my work day starts.
On Saturdays, I get up
weigh-in and meet my trainer... that's it. Beyond those two things I have no
other routine. Not even getting home from work is a set routine. Either my
neighbor gives me a ride or I catch the bus for an hour ride.
think having a set schedule would also help with weight loss... I can work food
prep in, workouts and blogging. Blogging allows me to vent, share and get/give
support. Support when trying to lose weight is underestimated as a
Yesterday, I over ate so much I won't be able to make
those points up - it'll be impossible. So I'm restarting my count today. I'm
sticking to my allotted 27 points, and any points I have I will allow myself to
use half of those. I know I should have any considering I've over eaten for 3
days... but I'm not trying to set myself up for failure, and realistically I'm a
hunger girl - I need extra points. I think I can handle only using half of what
So far today I've had:
- 1 egg
- 1 egg
- 1 pita pocket
- hot chocolate/coffee
Total Points: 8
It's a lot of points for just a
meal... the hot chocolate was 4 points, but I think it's worth it right now.
Around the office we have TONS of Halloween candy floating around, especially in
my department and it's all too tempting for a chocolate/sugar addict. So having
a controlled amount like a cup of hot cocoa will do me better than trying to
stay away from it all together and then breaking down in the middle of the day
and shoving Fun Size Snickers down my throat.
Hot Cocoa is my
For snacks I have baggy of seaweed and a 2
pomegranates, for lunch I have a grilled spinach mix with spinach (of course),
tomatoes, turmeric and onions - topped with Feta Cheese (my favorite) for a
total of 2 points!
For dinner, I'm not sure yet. I might have
more spinach or maybe I'll try making a chicken/chili mix. I have an idea of
grilling a Weight Watchers Chicken Burger (chopped up), roasted Pasilla Chili
Peppers and Feta - all shoved into a pita bread. That'd be 7 points... not too
