I’ve Been So Bad!

Posted in eating habits, exercise, Weight Watchers at 8:27 pm by way2much

As most of you, (my regular readers) may have noticed, I have not been blogging regularly.

As a result, I am just shoving food in my mouth and when I come to sit at the computer, I actually forget all that I consumed.  It has been a lot. 

What could it be?

Stress?

Boredom?

Frustration?

Depression?

Fuel to fend off the pain?

I am not sure.

I do have my sister’s twins with me all week, but they have been good. My son was sick in the beginning of the week and I worried about him.

I have been trying to plan the perfect vacation (camp) for the little ones but that does not have me overwhelmed. And how can I be bored! – Seriously!

We have been eating late each night, not good for the kids or for me either. They have been going to bed late and waking up late and getting the days started late, etc.  Take tonight for instance – it is 8:23 PM the 3 kids are with my husband at my son’s football practice. It is his turn (carpool) to drive the boys  home. So he decided to take my daughter and the twins and spend a few hours at the field playing with them while watching my son’s workout. It gave me a few hours to myself. I straightened out and prepared dinner – yup prepared – we didn’t eat yet!

Well, I bought all snacks and goodies for the kids to enjoy – hey it is a vacation! And Aunt Elaine is cool! So we had great nibbles at the park and the beach and while we watched Scooby Doo in Hawaii and Bratz Rock Angels!  But I ate too.  Alot.  Not good.

I will be happy if I do not post a weight gain this coming Tuesday. I will be happy to stay status quo, even though I have been doing a lot of walking. I have been doing a lot of eating as well.

So I think when the kids go to school, I will join Weight Watchers again.  My friend and I along with a friend of hers will go to the meetings.  We plan to walk everyday too.  It is always better to walk with others; it makes it more enjoyable and safer too.

Sigh.

We shall see.

I have a wedding next week – I REFUSE TO BUY A DRESS THAT I DON’T EVER WANT TO WEAR AGAIN – because it would be too big! I have to ravage through my closet and get serious!

Wednesday’s Meals/Activities

Posted in exercise, Food, Meals/Activities, Weight Watchers at 2:11 pm by way2much

BREAKFAST:

  • nothing

SNACK:

  • slice of ham and a slice of Swiss cheese rolled up
  • 10 small baby carrots
  • water

LUNCH (3:30)

  • 2 slices light style 7 grain bread
  • 3 slices (thin) ham
  • 2 slices (approx 1 ounce) Swiss cheese
  • smear of mayonnaise
  • water
  • SCALE – 5.5

DINNER:

  • 2 slices pizza with pepperoni
  • sliver of pudding pie (sugar free)
  • slice of watermelon
  • 2 Entemann’s chocolate chip cookies
  • 8 oz. Cherry Pepsi

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

NOTE

At 2:04 PM on a scale from 1-10 – I am at a 3. I want to eat something but just don’t know what I am in the mood for.  I have plenty of cold cuts but not sure I want to indulge in a sandwich.

I will be going to my aunt’s house so our children can go swimming this evening.  We will be ordering pizza. I think I will start off with my dad’s suggestion to cut my portion size down to 1/2.  At times, I would have 2-3 slices of pizza – perhaps I should just have 1 tonight. Pizza – as good as it is – is very high on the Weight Watcher point scale.  I am thinking that I will cut down for the remainder of the summer and perhaps go back to the WW way once the kids are back in school.  All the picnic-ing and bbq-ing and not being able to enjoy can bring me down.

Dan, in his comment from another post, brought out a good point. If I go in head first and get in too deep, I may be defeated before I start. Therefore, I think I will take it slowly. Instead of saying I need to lose 40 lbs, I will take it a few pounds at a time.

Tuesday’s Meals/Exercise

Posted in exercise, Food, Meals/Activities, Pampered Chef, Weight Watchers at 6:19 pm by way2much

BREAKFAST

  • Black coffee

LUNCH/DINNER

  • Chicken gyro wrap
  • french fries
  • black coffee
  • strawberry gelatin

BLTS (bites, licks, tastes – the ones that do you in!)

  • licks of chocolate pudding
  • 1/2 an Oreo cookie
  • (ingredients of a death by chocolate dessert that I concocted for myself for my meeting tonight)

Drinking plenty of water

EXERCISE FOR THE DAY

  • my standard stretches
  • Bowling – is that considered exercise? two games for a total of 20 frames

At my 7:30 meeting I will try NOT to eat anything as I feel so full it isn’t funny.

On a scale from 1-10 with 1 being famished and 10 being sick to your stomach – I rate myself at a “9”. The gyro and fries did me in – and the BLTs were just out of habit!

NOTE: It is NOT necessary to finish everything on your plate. I need to realize that by finishing everything on my plate, hunger will not cease to exist for others. It will just make me a glutton. (I grew up hearing “finish what’s on your plate, there are starving people in *insert country here*”)

UPDATE

Meeting: Will power I have not!

I had a few potato chips and dip – but really not much.

I made this death by chocolate dessert and had a sliver.

I drank a glass of Diet Coke.

Had perhaps 6 cubes of pinapple and cherry.

 

All together, I have no idea what amount of points I consumed by the WW method. But hopefully it was less than 25.
