It all started on Friday night. My boyfriend and I look forward to eating out on the weekends as a form of entertainment. If we don't have plans, we go out to dinner. Which is totally fine, there are a ton of healthy options when you go out and no one should be scared to do so. I am happy to say that we went to a Chipotle like place that made my decision making easy. Bowl with chicken, lettuce, pico, a tiiiny bit of beans, guac and cheese. Yes....I got cheese. I had the points to spend so I spent them. It was very good. The part that turns bad is.....I totally went crazy on chips and queso. The whole time I knew I shouldn't be eating this but I totally did. There was a point where I looked at my boyfriend and said "I totally ate that whole cup of queso, didn't I?" Boooo. As bad as it sounds I was still under my point allotment for the day. I believe that full of cheese dinner was about 23 points. I always estimate over what I think the serving sizes are so take the point value with a grain of salt. I would much rather overestimate than underestimate! So that was Friday. I suppose that counts as a win but the scale tomorrow will be that deciding factor!
On to the disgrace known as Saturday...woof. Friends came over and we went to the pool. I bought some hummus and pita chips for snacks. I also bought those crazy weird Lays chips- southern bisquits and gravy and truffle fries. I bought those for fun so I didn't eat thaaaaat many. I did eat a crap ton of hummus which was dumb. I should have portioned it out better. Oh well. For lunch we got pizza. I had 2 slices, 1 cheese and 1 pepperoni. I used the ww cheat sheet which says 1 cheese slice is 7 points and pepperoni is 8. After lunch of course the damn ice cream man has to come. We all got ice cream and I got an 8 point chipwich. No regrets there, that little bastard was good. After the pool I came home and ate dinner which consisted of another piece of pepperoni pizza and more pita chips with hummus. Such a terribly bad decision, wtf Julie. Because I have no idea how much I ate through the day I rounded up on everything and over estiamted, because seriously...who knows how much I did eat! (the whole reason why I'm on ww to begin with....HELLO). I ended up closing the day with 61 points used....I had to dip into my weeklies. BUT THAT'S OK!!! That is why they're there. :)
|That's a whole lotta points right there....yikes!|
Ok...so to all of those who have been following my journey from day 1 know that I try to find a positive out of every negative. There is def a positive to all of this!! That is...that both Saturday and Sunday mornings were perfect. Both mornings started out with a 5pp breakfast consisting of 1 egg, egg whites, light dry toast and fruit. That is a huge improvement and something to point out! Another positive is that even though I ate terribly on Saturday...I was being active at the pool. I was able to gain 3 activity points that day and that is DEF a check in the win column. YEAH!!
The last and best positive of this post is how great I did yesterday! I tried out two healthy meals and it was a good day! For lunch I made tuna melts and for dinner I had portabella mushroom pizza!
|Lots of cheesy goodness!|
So all in all it was a weekend filled with a few slip ups and damage control. I would call it a success but only Tuesday night will tell!!! I have to be good today and tomorrow...I can do this!
