Lexy – Recovering From A Morning Binge!

started my day with the alarm going off at 3:15am!  had to take my husband to the airport because he has a seminar this weekend.  i know i’m starting to sound like a broken record, but i have been so tired, exhausted and stressed out because of this move.  there have been way more stressful things that have happened throughout my past year, but for whatever reason… this week has been extremely difficult.  when i arrived back from the airport… i had an emotional eating binge…  gross!  it’s kind of embarrassing to admit, but i’m also trying to be honest and my food intake is far from perfect….
6 – yes, i had three of these!
5 – and a zone bar
3 – and some cereal
5 – and some caramel covered bananas
10 – and some chocolate chips
i ate all of the above over a couple of hours while i did laundry, dishes, took out the trash, broke down and hauled off moving boxes, unpacked, organized, etc….
saw this quote on the ww site
“Listen to your binges. They are signals you send to yourself. Perhaps you have allowed your life to get out of balance. Pay attention to those signals and take remedial action–it’s a key maintenance skill.” – D.F. 
I TOOK A NAP!!!!
when i woke up, i felt pretty stupid about the food choices of the day so far…. I had already consumed 29 points before 12pm!!!!
so, i pretty much stuck to veggies….
butternut squash fries
got another room unpacked and completed…
spinach smoothie
grapes and reddi-wip while getting even more school supplies shopping done!
and carrots!
met up with carman and some new friends from church at the movie to see THE HELP!  it was amazing!  such a good movie!  very inspiring!

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!
