What Am I Doing To Myself?

We have been posting lately about having a fresh start and trying to re-focus, and really just being sick of eating junk when it doesn’t make us feel good.  For some reason I am having the hardest time snapping out of it!!!  I’m getting really frustrated with myself!!  I realize that having all of these negative emotions are not helping the situation.  Yesterday’s Weight Watcher’s meeting was so good!!!  I’m looking forward to Carman’s recap and I won’t give away too much info before she has time to post… but… they talked about the fact that it’s unrealistic to follow the plan 100% perfectly 100% of the time.  We really don’t do good when we are under pressure and when we are so hard on ourselves.  We talked a lot about how to get out of this unrealistic mind set.  Y’all already know that one Weight Watchers person told me I was probably obsessing too much!!!  I can pretty much say that Yes…. I’m being crazy again.  I have been starting out the day okay and by the end of the day …. I’m grabbing everything in sight.  I’m really going to have to get back to the basics.  I can’t believe how hard it is to stay on track after all that hard work to reach Lifetime! So….. here was yesterday’s disaster….

Took a much needed rest day from working out.  Between Spin and Body Pump… I was toast!

5 – Protein Pancake

7 – After WW Mtg, I grabbed a salad at Chickfila… was busy talking to my mom and forgot to take the picture…

3 – WW sample while driving home…

1 – Wheat Thins

5 – Hungry Girl Apple Pie in a Mug!

6 – Cup of frozen yogurt

0 – Butternut Squash Fries

The rest of the day… no pictures… wonder why??

9 – graham crackers

12 – 2 cookies at Subway

4 – the boys chips from Subway

1 – 3 Magic Pop chips

Grand Total of 53 pts for the day…..  Should have made a decent dinner and NOT snacked my life away!!!

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!

    Funny, but yesterday I had the SAME problem…actually all week it’s been challenging. My in-laws were here for two days and I sort of watch what I’m eating when they’re here but I try not to stress over it and I think “no big deal, I”ll get back on track when they leave. Well, I haven’t really gotten back on track all the way yet! And I saw in the WW website at the beginning of the week that they posted a “challenge” to follow the plan 100% for just one week. I thought that sounded pretty easy, until my in-laws came! I seem to start off good in the mornings also and then by the end of the day I want to just shove tons of dinner in my mouth and throw portion sizing out the window! Ugh! It’s frustrating. Not to mention a friend came over last night and ate with us and she brought brownies…so of course I had to have a brownie (forget the 90 calorie ones) and I had to have it with the frozen yogurt! So by the time I went to bed my stomach was just feeling so yucky! Of course I’ve vowed to do better today. Started off craving a Zone Bar, so instead of having it for a snack later I had for breakfast. I have a work out DVD that the trainor on there always says “Listen to your body”. So I’ve started realizing that when I’m craving a certain something (especially if it’s healthy) then I should do what my body says! And it doesn’t mean I have to go overboard. I’m not able to attend the WW meetings just yet, so it’s great to hear y’alls comments from them. It’s also extremely comforting to hear that it’s unrealistic to follow WW 100% of the time. Btw, thanks for posting the points again!

    OK, the triple line should be drawn on your calendar! This just proves again that even when you’ve worked so hard for so long, reached your goal and are in maintenance – YOU CAN NEVER QUIT!! It has to be a “for the rest of my life” mindset. You/we take the option of going off program once in a while, and that’s where it gets dangerous (at least for me). Once I “go off”, Satan takes over and it’s too easy to keep going off! You’ve come too far and look too fabulous to blow it now. Pick yourself up, brush yourself off and get going again!! I have every confidence in you because you are my inspiration and I love you more than anything!! tq
