Monday 15 August –
136 lbs (not a bad start since I thought it was 139), WW Points Allowed 22, WW Points eaten 36, (v.g. for first day), hours spent hungry 8 (not v.g.), minutes spent exercising 10 (running across yard while watering trees), trips to the break room looking for goodies 3.
6:35 a.m.– Poured glass of milk for breakfast : 2 points. Cooked poptart, then looked up points. FOUR! Could let it go to waste. Might as well slather butter on top. Total breakfast points: 6 (don’t count butter since it was melted and you couldn’t see it).
8:45 a.m.– Hungry. Made trip to break room in a misguided hope that one of my co-workers brought baked goods.
10:00 a.m.– Absolutely starving out of my mind
10:35 a.m.– Made another trip to break room wishing for miracle cookies to appear. (Too cheap to go buy anything from the vending machines.)
11:00 a.m.– LUNCH! Spoke with fellow Weight Watcher and decided chicken and romesco sauce worth 5 points. REALLY wanted yummy mac and cheese, but will power held. Green beans – 0. Got a salad: 1 point. Slim pickings on salad bar today; had to bulk up with fruit. Will figure out points later. Fruit was 4 points! And that was for non-sweetened…which I am sure these weren’t! Total lunch points: 10
12:42 p.m.– Hungry. Stupid salad.
1:30 p.m.– Hungrier. Stupid fruit.
2:11 p.m.– Officially starving. Decided to distract myself with cup of tea, then remember I have to count sugar as points. Will not do Splenda again!
2:35 p.m.– Made tea with Splenda. HATE Splenda. Sufficiently distracted for one hour.
4:00 p.m.– Thought about stealing son’s snack: banana – 1 point. Decided he was more important…this time.
4:35 p.m.– Offered 2 cheese crackers from son. Must accept to be good mother. Estimated 1 point.
5:00 p.m.– STARVING! Give in and go to Taco Bell. Blame husband because he is not home to cook decent meal for. Had Chalupa (9 points…OMG 23 gram fat!!), Grilled Chicken Burrito (9 points), one BITE of Riley’s Bean Burrito (1 point.) Total supper points: 19. Woah. And whoops. Knew TB was bad, but that’s just ridiculous. Some things were 23 points!
9:10 p.m.– Thinking about food again. Brush teeth to keep from eating.
10:00 p.m.– Read Bridget Jones. Go to bed feeling a little snacky. Will try to develop Inner Poise tomorrow.
