Tuesday 23 August
WW points eaten 47ish (but who really keeps track of these things anyway?), trips to the break room 1 (v.g.), free meals 1 (my downfall!), points of yogurt pretzels eaten 6 (v.v.b. – so addicting), times thought about exercising 6, times actually exercised 0.
6:30 p.m.– Smart Ones Breakfast Quesadilla. Actually really yummy. Too bad only two in a box. Must…get…more… Total breakfast points: 4 (great start!)
7:30 a.m.– Steal 3 PB M&M’s from the bag bought for friend (didn’t really think I’d stay completely out of them, did ya?). 0 points (justification – though not eaten in one bite for savoring purposes, could have been one bite, so it doesn’t count).
9:06 a.m.– Not “hungry” but if food was put in front of me, I’d gobble it up. Chew gum to stay on track. Inner Poise winning over.
11:20 a.m.– Forced to eat big meal by drug company (who shall remain nameless). Drug company shipped us drugs for sister facility. Had to deliver to said facility. Might as well eat out! Boss had Jersey Mikes coupon, therefore free meal for me. My Kryptonite #1: free food. Got extremely sensible Club Sandwich slathered in Mayo (positive the bacon and cheese were fat free) and Cheetos (O.M.G. 20gm of fat!) 8 points. That’s JUST the Cheetos. Only eat half of sandwich (but in my defense – it’s a really, big sandwich). Boss offers me last of his chips. (Silly boss.) Graciously decline. Inner Poise on a roll! …though hard to look glamorous while licking Cheetos residue off fingers. Estimated total lunch points: 25ish
1:00 p.m.– Still full. New feeling. Uncharted territory. Feel danger lurking. Have snack at ready.
3:45 p.m.– Still full. Weird feeling. Must be all that fat content. Dieters/nutritionists have been wrong all these years. Call NASA with research idea.
4:30 p.m.– Offered son my peach. (Total improvement.)
5:10 p.m.– Ate peach. Needed to be eaten. Getting soft.
6:10 p.m.– Ate small bowl of beans and ham. Estimate 5 points.
7:45 p.m.– Peeled off soggy layer of bread from leftover Jersey Mikes. Eat rest. Estimating total supper points: 7-8 points
8:00 p.m.– Sit outside and watch storm roll right by. Not a drop. Did see 5 Canadian Geese fly over low. Love the honking.
8:30 p.m.– Have conversation with husband about how I offered him leftover sandwich, then ate it anyway. Told him he must be fast when it comes to food.
9:00 p.m. – Retire to room to read Zombie book, defeated, fat, lacking Inner Poise. Realize lunch is always my downfall. Will try to stay within points at least one more time before two week trial over.
9:05 p.m. – Crap. Remember free meal coming on Thursday. Curses!
