Wednesday 17 August
136 lbs, (at least I haven’t gained), WW Points eaten: lost track at 22 (crisis), free meals 2, people that gave me presents 7 (I must be totally awesome), people that literally followed me around work singing Happy Birthday (on multiple occasions) 1, HB banners hung in my honor 2, alcohol units consumed 0 (v.g), alcohol units wished consumed 5 (bad).
12:00 a.m. – Had been laying in bed for an hour and a half unable to fall asleep. Why? Caffeine in the morning? Jordan snoring? Uncomfortable in bed? Wanted to spend last couple hours as a 20-something awake? Can’t sleep knowing I am entering my THIRD decade? F-ing HUNGRY? Made half a cheese and mayo sandwich with glass of milk. Points: don’t know, don’t care. I’m old.
6:40 a.m. – Back on the wagon. Made scrambled eggs with cheese for breakfast. (Riley loves them.) Read report once that said women who eat 2 eggs in the morning eat 300 fewer calories throughout the rest of the day. We’ll see about that. Look up point values for eggs: poached – 2, boiled- 2, scrambled – 3. Why? Accounted for the butter and cheese in point total… Mystery remains unsolved. Will ask WW guru sister. Decided it must be a typo. Go with 2 points. Total breakfast points: 5.5.
10:40 a.m. – Really hungry. Ate on PB cracker. .75 point. I will NOT round up!
11:30 a.m. – Bosses/co-workers take me to lunch at McAlisters. Love ½ and ½ specials! Get sandwich and spud. Opt for water instead of gallon of sugary tea which will save me 6-13 points, depending on refill status (have reached sainthood). Will worry about food points later. Looked up points: estimated 15, including two bites of shared Bday brownie. Total lunch points: 15
3:25 p.m. – Just informed that calories don’t count on your birthday! Great news! Thanks, Amy!
4:30 p.m. – Stealing son’s afternoon snack didn’t even cross my mind (thanks to 15 points lunch).
6:30 p.m. – Famished. Met book club at BJ’s to eat. Had half of: mac and cheese, stuffed mushrooms, Ahi, cookie dessert thing, and two raspberry teas, heavy on the raspberry. Total supper points: like a million. But I did stop eating when I was full tonight, so that’s new. 🙂 Jordan was excited about my leftovers. And there’s always tomorrow, when it is NOT my birthday
