Day 111

I did really well today I think. I made it to the gym, stayed within my points and have made it to midnight (now) without going to bed. I made it to the gym! I needed to repeat that. I could only do about 2/3rds of my whole workout. Usually I do an hour on the treadmill, and 3 to 4 sets on each weight machine. Today I did almost a half hour on the treadmill and 2 sets on all of my weight machines. I just feel really weak, like I have had all of my strength drained away. I felt okay this morning, but as the day wore on I found myself nodding off, and by the time I got to the gym I was developing a head ache. I did it though, and tomorrow I will go and do my bit of cardio and then Wednesday I will go and do the circuit. I will just keep going until I am back where I was a month ago.

The only bad thing (not really bad either, choices choices...) I did today was go to lunch with my brother. I traded in my french fries for a baked potato, but still had the chicken sandwich. I'm in a chaotic emotional place (it would be a lot to explain) right now. I'm dealing through it, but I still feel the need for comfort, and I'm fighting the want to turn to food. That is its own little emotional battle.

I am going to try and remember to take measurements tonight as I missed then earlier this month.

1/3 order nachos: 6
1/2 roll : 1
5 oz chicken breast: 5
1 crab cake: 2
1 small baked potato: 3
1 serving ranch: 3
2 servings monteray jack: 6
1 can soup: 3
1 serving cheese: 2
1 serving cheddar rice crisps: 2
1/2 yogurt: 1
1 serving spaghetti: 4
1 serving sauce w meat: 3
1 chocolate (again, yep.): 2
Total for the Day: 43/43

I made it! I might use some extra points later. I'm trying to save most of them for New Year's Eve. Chad and I are going to veg out at home with some Indian take out. Okay, to explain the chocolate: My husband bought me a box of chocolates for Christmas. Not a huge box or anything, but yeah. I had given him the day off on Christmas, and even though I hadn't wanted to take one originally, I did in the end because I really needed the break. Now I have this half box of very nice chocolates in my fridge. I got rid of everything else, not these. I am going to eat one every day until they are gone. Just one though. I do believe myself control is getting a lot better, I just need to get back into the habit of making the right choices all throughout my day.

How long do you think a box of GOOD chocolate would have lasted LAST YEAR in your fridge?? You are doing so well, that is great progress, learning to make healthy choices like that.

Good idea carrying the points over... Does WW allow for 'flexible' points on occasions like that? No doubt I'd be wasting mine on alcohol - one of the few nights I really drink very much!

If emotionally draining things are going on right now, are you taking care of yourself in other ways that don't involve food? Just a gentle reminder to be kind to yourself...

Retta: A box of good chocolate would not have made it though the day after Christmas in my fridge last year! This is a definite improvement. :)

Patsy: WW gives me a certain amount of points per day and then a set amount of "extra" points per week that I can use at any time. Now I cant carry the extra points over week after week until I have a ton of them and I cant carry my daytime points over, but they still help! I dont really drink anymore, but I am incredibly excited about indian take out!

Stephanie: I am trying to find ways to comfort myself that dont involve food if that is what you mean. I think that this is quite possibly the best thing I can do for myself right now while I'm getting stronger.
