Weigh-in was this morning: DOWN 3.4 lbs!
At first I was a bit bummed it was not more for my first week, but realized during the meeting that almost 3 1/2 lbs is GREAT! It didn’t take me 7 days to gain the weight and it is not gonna take me just 7 days to lose it.
Went to the grocery store tonight and got some more healthy food. Put my carrots, grapes, jicama and red pepper in snack sized bags so they are ready to go for tomorrow. Also grabbed some Fresca Diet soda. I was trying really hard to stay away from the stuff, but realized I am in need of something sweet that I can grab to drink when I am stressed out. I am gonna be Uber stressed for the next few weeks trying to build rapport with 28 new kids in a new grade so I am going to grin and bear the fact that I am drinking a diet soda each day.
IT COULD BE WORSE.
Another NSV: I found out this afternoon that not only will I be eating out tomorrow night for a friends birthday (Mexican) but I will also be joining my friends out for a post-mortem on our “first day” of new school on Monday. I am a bit stressed knowing I will be eating out so much, but also know that since I KNOW it is coming, I can plan for it. I have already created my journal entries for the next two days, making sure I am planning for a slightly-larger-than-normal dinner.
For tomorrow, I gave myself 2 servings of tortilla chips, since I know they are a weakness with 1/4 cup guac, and since there is no menu online, I just planned for chicken fajitas and hope to share them with someone at the table so I only eat my allotted 2. I also plan to drink diet soda, even though my friends will probably drink. I’m not a big drinker AND I don’t want to wait the points.
For Monday, we are going to a bar/pub that has an online menu, but most of the food is fried, cheesy or burger-y. I picked a dry Caesar salad with a grilled chicken breast on top, and balsamic vinaigrette dressing on the side. If I am really craving them, I may steal a few fries from a neighboring plate and count them as 2 or 3 points.
But I like that I have thought this out and have planned my days by what I am eating at night. I think it will help me become a more intuitive eater in the long run. Oh, and the last thing, by planning out my meals early, I am actually not using any weekly points! WOO HOO GO ME!
