I Interrupt My Crazy Life For A Post!!

I have mentioned before how much I like the movie “Eat, Pray, Love”… Today, I’m quoting her….

“One must always be prepared for riotous and endless waves of transformation.”

I’m not sure if this makes sense to anyone else but me… but I have just had one thing after another going on lately. I’m doing my best to keep my head above water… On Sunday, I came home from church and wanted to spend time with the boys and relax. I was so incredibly tired and wanted to take a nap. I ended up munching on a protein pancake, too much pizza, frozen yogurt, cereal, and cookies. While it was happening I was very aware of what I was doing. After I had just given the speech in a prior post about TRACKING EVERYTHING!! So… being honest with myself, I added up all of my points for that day and realized I had eaten 69 pts. Ugh… (All of my activity points plus all of my weekly points!!) I knew that if I worked out everyday, I would be able to make up for it…. so that is what I committed to do.

Monday – 27 pts

1 tsp peanut butter -1

*ran 5 miles with the running group* +8

Protein waffle with banana – 5

Cheesy eggs with pico – 2 (used egg beaters instead of regular eggs)

Protein bar – 6

Whey protein fruit smoothie – 4

Tomatoes – 0

Tortilla pizza – 4

Zone bar while picking out Valentine’s gifts for the family – 5

Butternut squash fries – 0

Tuesday – 29 pts

Banana – 0

*1 hour of elliptical* +10

Protein waffle with blueberries – 5

Chickfila chargrilled and fruit salad w/ fat free honey mustard – 7

Went to see The Vow with Torry for our Valentine’s afternoon date :)

He wants to strangle me half the time…

Protein bar after the movie – 6

Tortilla pizza – 4

Reese’s miniature cup – 1

Chocolate covered strawberries – 6

I’ve been sick since Sunday night, and have tons to do this week. I’m really annoyed with myself for eating so much junk on Sunday…. I am definitely letting stressful things control me sometimes… but I am trying my best to turn things around and not let it ruin my whole week. If I have a bad day…. IT IS WHAT IT IS……. and move on!

Sorry for the tiny pictures….. I used the wrong setting and don’t feel like going back to fix them…. :) Gotta tackle the rest of my TO-DO list…

Do you ever have days like my Sunday??? How do you deal with it??

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!

    Don’t beat yourself up. It’s over and you can’t do anything to change it. You can only learn from it and hopefully not repeat it.

    I think we all have days like that. I wanted another plate of food at dinner tonight. Not because I was hungry, but because the food was so good. I knew if I did it, I would be over my DPA and into my WPA. I didn’t want that! I sat for a minute and thought about it before I reacted. Luckily, my brain told me I was full and didn’t NEED another plate of food. I have just felt “heavy” this week. I’ve been on a good stretch of losing and I’m afraid I’m nearing a plateau.

    I’m still training with my couch25k group, so at least I’m getting in some good activity points. Thanks for answering my questions and the running suggestions you gave me the other day. :)

      Thx Shannon! Some days are just so weird! Luckily I was able to recover with lots of cardio this week… I’m sooo looking forward to my points resetting tomorrow! :) I really appreciate your comments. Congrats on sticking to your running program!
