I remembered to take pictures of my food all day today. I always feel so much more accountable when I do the pics. I knew after a high points day yesterday, I had to force myself to be a good girl today. And I was... mostly. ;)
I have been grueling over a decision for about a week now. I was flip flopping back and forth - yes, no, yes, no, worth it, not worth it, fun, mess me all up, etc. In short, my husband is going to my parents' town on Tuesday of this week for a preacher's meeting. If we went, it meant seeing my parents and the kids getting to play piano and fiddle and sing at the meeting. I could go out to eat alone with my husband once. The problem is, I have plans to re-start our homeschool tomorrow morning. If I decided to go on this trip, there would be no schooling on Monday or Tuesday because it'd be an overnight trip. And then Wednesday, we would be tired from traveling and I'd have luggage to put away and laundry to sort through. Not to mention, I always FAIL with eating when I go to visit my parents. Plus, we would be fed a potluck meal after the meeting which is always bad news. So I finally just said no. NO. I always go away from these types of trips telling my husband that I have to learn that in this season of life, I can't always just up and go. It's kinda sad to miss an opportunity to see my parents, but I was just down a couple weeks ago and I have obligations here at home. It was a hard choice to make, but I'm contented now that I can start my new school schedule tomorrow and know what foods I will eat and not worry about going off program.
Breakfast was a Greek yogurt, 2 turkey links, a banana, and some instant coffee.
I made salsa chicken in the crockpot for lunch today. I had a high fiber tortilla with shredded lettuce, 2 oz of chicken, and 1 TBSP 0% Greek yogurt. I had a serving of black refried beans and Spanish rice. I divided 28 grams 2% shredded Colby Jack between my beans and chicken taco. Oh! And I sauteed some bell peppers and onion in 1 tsp of olive oil.
Before church tonight, I had a hankerin'. That's southern for a craving. Lol. I had 14 grams of pretzels with 15 grams melted almond bark and then another bite of the melted chocolate!
When we got back home, I had 2 Smart Ones burgers with ketchup and pickles, 28 grams Baked Ruffles, and an apple.
I realized a bit later I was a f/v serving short for the day. I heated up the rest of my spaghetti squash. I stirred in 14 grams of I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and 14 grams Italian cheese. I sprinkled on some garlic salt and Italian seasoning and stirred it all up. It was good and very filling.
In a nutshell: I got in my 80 oz of water today. I only used 2 more of my remaining weeklies. I had 15 after yesterday, so now I'm down to 13. I only have to get through Monday and Tuesday, so I think that's doable! I'm sure gonna miss having 34 daily points as I lose weight. LOL Everything feels so good and achievable right now because I have so many points. When I drop down to like 31 points, I start panicking because I always seem to dip into weeklies. Well, I can cross that bridge when I get there. Good night!
