Here I am the day before weigh-in. I had to meet my colleagues to work after work. I did prepare I had an apple and a bag of vegetables to eat on the car ride home, but by the time, I got home, I was famished! Seriously, I have not been that hungry in a long. time:
Plus, I did not have a dinner planned and ready to go… However, I do have good choices at home so I improvised. I made a Lavash Turkey Pepperoni Pizza (8sp). I really enjoyed it, and by after I was done, I was still hungry. So I made another one (Weight Watchers math made that 17sp). About half-way through the second one, I started to feel more satisfied, but I finished it anyway. Now I feel a little too full, and I think, maybe, I should examine how/why I ate the second one.
Well, for one thing, I had only eaten 9sp for the day, and that was less than I’ve been eating so I think that had an impact. Typically, I have been eating 11-13sp approximately My after work, work was productive but stressful too. Truth is I’m still not done, and it is on my mind. Even though I handled my dinner situation efficiently it added to my stress levels:
So, what did I learn? Next time I will:
- pack a protein snack when I work longer days
- name my feelings and give myself a little more time before eating more
- stop eating when I feel satisfied (I think I kept eating because I had already tracked the points)
It’s not that I think I overindulged but it’s on my mind and that probably means I’m right to think it though.
So how was my week? I really did everything I could to have a good week. Here are some highlights of things that make me happy, that I’m proud of, good food finds, or just beautiful images:
