Tuesday 16 August
Weight Watchers Points Allowed: 22, WW Points eaten 21.5 (v.v.g.), cigarettes: 0 (okay, I don’t smoke but Bridget Jones always includes them), trips to the breakroom 2 (g.), hours spent thinking about food 4 (better).
6:30 a.m. – Make whole grain waffle for breakfast with fat free syrup and NO butter (v.v.g.) with handful of blueberries. Glass of milk to drink. Total Breakfast Points: 4 (v.g.)
8:05 a.m. – Hear rumor of doughnuts in breakroom. Disregard usually precious information and return to office. Have developed Inner Poise. Am centered, responsible Poise goddess.
8:15 a.m. – Sneak a peak at doughnuts in breakroom. Boss sees me looking and causally says “16 points”. Realize boss reads blog.
9:20 a.m. – Tummy rumbling. Inner Poise waning. Doughnuts calling my name. Remain glued to office chair. Fruity water mix and work keeps me preoccupied until lunch.
11:25 a.m. – Run to cafeteria. Had leftover Salmon Quiche (9 points, thought fish was good for you?!, oh wait, must be the cheese), Blackeyed peas (1 point, don’t count bacon chunks within, as not on menu), Salad (0 points, I round down). Feeling successful. Friend pushes half piece of Triple Chocolate Cake in front of my face. Curse you! Take one bite (0 points, do to reinstated “1 bite or less doesn’t count” rule). Total lunch points: 10
3:10 p.m. – Feeling a little snacky, but not too bad. (v.g.)
4:30 p.m. – Don’t try to steal son’s afternoon snack like yesterday.
5:45 p.m. – Had cheese stick. (2 points)
6:15 p.m. – Practically inhaled supper. Pork roast, squash, broccoli (0!), mashed potatoes, and onions. Licked pork juice and butter off of plate. (Really, I did.) Had one bite of cake from lunch (which doesn’t count). Total supper points: 5.5
8:00 p.m. – Feel triumphant! Feel in control!
8:10 p.m. – Remember eggs and milk in quiche not calculated in total points. Oh well. Over points again.
9:30 – Hungry. Ate crackers – 4 points. Inner Poise diminished.
