Fridays will always be a cheat day. My fiance and I always go out to dinner on Friday, so I build this into my plan.
I need to start getting out of bed earlier. I left the house so unprepared today.. no work out clothes, no breakfast/lunch.. no tea.. I set myself up to fail (hate when I do that)
Overall I've done well. I ate the banana that I shoved in my purse and then had a piece of gooey butter cake to celebrate a coworkers b-day. I also had 1 mountain dew.. but I don't feel the need to get another, so I'll consider that a success. There was another meeting today and more doughnuts... again the doughnuts didn't look like they would be worth it, so I didn't miss not having one. It'll be interesting to see how I react when someone actually brings in good doughnuts :) However the doughnut bullet was dodged for another month.
I ate some better oats oatmeal for lunch and then checked out my amazon prime account and found a walk away the pounds video I could stream and do from my desk in street clothes. It was a little uncomfortable in jeans and with people gawking at me, but I made it through a 30 minute work out and I feel good about it.
I still have 12 of my 39 daily points and 40 of my weekly points to enjoy whatever the finance pick for the restaurant tonight. He knows I'm working on losing weight, but I never make anything off limits. I just plan accordingly... typically I would have consumed fewer points throughout the day, but that ship has sailed for today. :) ( I need some veggies tonight!) I do have a plan for tonight though-for dinner I will of course make a smart choice but I plan on packing up 1/2 of if for a later date. Chances are he will eat the leftovers before I even think about eating them.
My energy level is up from where it's been, and the WATP video helped pick it up a little more even.
Happy weekend friends!

Today has been tough telling myself no choice. I have been fighting it every step of the way. There was meeting today and 2 dozen doughnuts were brought over to customer service. I went over and looked at them-- there was nothing there that appealed to me, so I didn't have one. Now.. back in the day, it wouldn't matter if it appealed to me or not. Free doughnut! I would have had anywhere from 1-4 just because. Victory #1, no doughnut just because I could.
Next was the mountain dew. I didn't really WANT a mountain dew.. but I had money and I have the points.. maybe I could have just one.. well that's how it starts. I told myself no choice, and passed up the vending machines. Victory #2
lastly, afterwork is pretty busy today so I decided I would go to the gym at lunch time. Lunch time was coming up.. I didn't really feel like going, there were other things I can do... and wanted to do, but again.. I have no choice.. so I went and burned 303 calories in 30 minutes.
Victory #3 :)
I'm excited to be sticking to my plan... I can't wait to see the difference it makes on my weight loss
side note, I've noticed that I'm getting really tired... like ready for bed at 8pm tired. just something to be mindful of.
take care all

No choice day 1:
Pretty easy actually. I am pumped and ready to go! No soda cravings though I know they are coming.
Breakfast: Green Monster & a hardboiled Egg
Morning Snack: 1 mini babybel light, 1V8
Lunch: 1 banana, 1 container of Greek Yogurt, 1 hardboiled egg, baby carrots with honey mustard
Afternoon snack: 1 banana, 1 mini babybel light
Dinner Kelloggs Fiber Bar, Skim Milk & 1 fat free pudding.
I know it seems like a mishmash of food, but I look for high fiber/high protein and stuff it in my lunch box.
I did a 30 minute circuit after work and felt sick after, but I think that was because I was so hungry as I felt better after I ate.
I did go over to momís and usually I would eat some crap there, but that isnít on my meal plan, so itís not going in my mouth! I did neglect to take pics of my food, but I did track everything that went in my mouth so Iím pleased.
Day 1 success
No Choice Day 2
I had a couple of slipupsí on day 2. Slip up # 1 I was soooo tired ( probably due to lack of mountain dew) the company was hosting a lunch for us all and I ate 3 cookiesóI still stayed within my daily allotted points, I tracked it, but I shouldnít have eaten them. Slip up #2 I was running around after work and didnít get to the gym. I told myself that I would exercise at home.. I did not. Bummer.. but Iím not letting it get me down!
Other than that Day 2 went well. I was sore from the circuit.
I noticed Iím getting exhausted right around quitting time.
Meals for the day:
Breakfast hardboiled egg and better oats oatmeal (love this stuff)
Morning snack: 2 mini babybel lights 1 applesauce
Lunch: banana, 2 containers of greek yogurt, hardboiled egg
Afternoon snack, 2 clementines, banana; Kelloggís fiber bar, 3 m&M cookies
Dinner : honey nut cheerios & skim milk
Overall I think it was a successful day.
No Choice Day 3
Woke up late today and I was literally running out the door just grabbing what was close to me. I need to pack my lunch at night so itís ready to go, but I didnít. Itís funny how my mind is trying to rationalize poor choices. Iíve been having a lot of points left over because Iím eating a lot of zero/low point foods. So my mind is trying to tell me itís ok to go get an 8 point soda from the vending machine.. or that package of twinkies.. really? Brain youíre on day 3Ö slow your roll you have a long way to go.
Because I didnít have a real lunch with me I had to go out and it took everything in me not to get fast food. Brain was like ooohhh Taco Bell.. or oh man.. wouldnít a Cheddar JalapeŮo sausage be awesome? We can still get that mountain dew man. Seriously? NO BRAIN NO Instead I went to quick trip and got a protein pack with turkey, almonds & cheese for 4points- plus an unsweetened iced tea
I have money in my wallet and Iím resisting the urge to go get a snack from vending. Iím winning because a.) Iím not hungry and b.) thereís just no choice
Breakfast: 2 fiber 1 bars, Skim milk, 1 clementine
Snack: banana , clementine
Lunch: better oats oatmeal & 1 package Oscar Mayer P3 protein pack
Dinner : not sure. I have 17points left for the day. If I have a Green Monster as planned that is only 5 points used. Typically I try not to leave more 6 points on the board. So I might make something else instead
Activity: Iím going back to the gym ( I wore yoga pants to work so Iíd be ready) and doing the 30 minute circuit
Iím still tired, but overall cravings havenít been badóI am supplementing with unsweetened tea to help. Iím going to write out my list of reasons to lose weight again. I find itís more helpful to write them at the time I need them than it is to just have them and look at them.
Day 4 is right around the cornerÖ Iím excited to get through week 1
Thanks for listening
Peace & Love Jess
