Friday is my Weight Watchers weigh-in day.
This morning I stepped on the scale and I knew I would not be going to my Weight Watchers meeting to weigh in today. Last week I had finally hit 9 lbs lost and today I saw I would be getting a gain. Mentally I just wasn't in it this week. It was a very off week for me - I had commuting delays with my train and the teen's both had Dr's appointments and my mini me had soccer practice. I didn't meal prep this week, I didn't get the workouts in that I had planned - it was pretty much a train wreck of a week for me.
The thing I liked about the old Weight Watchers plan is that I didn't feel like I had to deprive myself of my favorite foods. I could eat them in moderation and still work them into my "points". I have been struggling with this new plan. I don't feel like I am "allowed" to eat the foods that I enjoy, even in moderation. I haven't tracked consistently in ages because I will inevitably end up eating one of the foods I used to be able to enjoy and end up using all of my points in one day and then I feel like I have somehow failed!
So during my non-tracking couple of weeks here's a look at some of the "good" and "bad" choices I made:
|Chipotle chicken burrito bowl|
|Chips & salsa|
|Buffalo Wild Wings|
|Smoothies with my mini-me|
|Uno's deep dish pizza with my hubby on a date|
|His and hers drinks on our date|
|Just a little bit fro-yo|
|Snacking in the car|
|Yucky 0 point cosmo mix|
|Korean bbq meatballs from Noodles & Company|
|Chocolate swirl loaf from Starbucks|
|Humongous turkey Ruben from a sandwich shop near work|
|More fro-yo with the kids|
|More Chipotle with the kids|
|Hubby putting his zebra cake in my fruit bowl (I ate the banana - not the Zebra cake)|
|Edible Arrangement at work|
|His and her snack chocolate pretzel snack bars - guess which one is mine|
|Chicken quinoa chili from Protein Bar|
|Sunday morning breakfast scramble|
|Yogurt parfait in the making|
|Weekend breakfast at home|
|A trip to Olive Garden|
|Trader Joe's Steel Cut Oatmeal|
|Expensive salad I bought for lunch|
|Joe's Crab Shack!|
|Banana and a breakfast bar on the way to work|
|Co-worker made banana bread!|
This week I'm going to attempt to log everything I eat and drink into my Weight Watchers app. I feel with a little discipline this week I can hit the 10 pounds lost mark at next week's weigh-in!
