Start the day knowing you will fail. You won’t feel as bad when it happens.

Thursday 25 August

WW points consumed: 35 and counting, Wise food choices made 2, UN-wise food choices made 4, new shirts bought with Old Navy Cash 3, tantrums thrown by toddler who’s mean mom (that’d be me) wouldn’t let him get a toy at the store 1 (really long tantrum), smooth cashier who hid said toy while said child wasn’t looking 1 (hero!), times I stuck to my guns today 1 (not buying toy).

5:50 a.m. – Hit snooze. Plan for failure.

6:40 a.m. – No time for filling eggs. Cram two waffles down throat while dressing kid (who is also cramming waffles down throat). Total breakfast points: 4.5

7:29 a.m. – Whew. On time to work.

9:20 a.m. – Hungry. Waffles=fiber. Fiber=hungry again in 2 hours. Eggs=protein. Protein=not hungry til lunch. Lesson learned. Snack of watermelon. 1 stinking point.

9:38 a.m. – Snack two: half a FIBER snack bar. (1 point). Make note to buy less-yummy, more filling, cardboard PROTEIN bars.

10:35 a.m. – Meeting for work. Always provided: pig in blankets, doughnuts, sugary drinking, LUNCH! Eat third of pig in blanket. Boss’s fault. He started it. Ate in front of me. Estimate 2 points. (Sadly, one point per tiny bite).

11:40 a.m. – FREE LUNCH! (There I go again). Chicken (2), beans (2), potatoes (4 – bacon, cheese, sour cream. 4 is conservative estimate), salad (0). Doing so well! Oh, wait. What’s that? Pie? Key lime or lemon? Who cares. Gimme one. (estimate 10 points – ouch!), Total lunch points: 18. (But totally worth it).

1:00 p.m. – Miss pie from lunch. Want to have my pie and eat it too.

4:30 p.m. – Don’t try to steal son’s snack. (Great job! But not too hard… don’t care for oranges.)

5:00 p.m. – Have to use free drink birthday coupon at Starbucks before expiration. SB happens to be on way to Old Navy. Got Strawberry/Soy (go me!) Frap, venti (it’s free!!). Said “yes” to whip (v.b.) but share with pre-tantrum kid. 8 points. (Took 2 points off for Riley’s part)

8:45 p.m. – Sit to right blog. Finally getting hungry. Will choose something terrible to eat after blog done.

9:00 p.m. – Consider diet of only eggs and Strawberry/Soy Fraps. Could be done for 23 points/day: 3 tall fraps, no whip and 4 eggs, no cheese. Call Starbucks/The Incredible Egg people to pitch idea.

9:02 p.m. – Off to make terrible decision. Thinking Chef Boyardee… (praise self for buying whole wheat kind). Might as well blow it big. Can always start over tomorrow.
