Technically, today is January 2nd. I got a late start because I stayed up sooo late the night before watchin a movie. Plus my husband had the day off and I just stayed asleep. That was my first day of 2013. I remained rested.
The morning of January 2nd wasn't that great! I snored and was so loud that I woke myself up. It was incorporated in my sleep as the sounds of Bass speakers!! Awful!!!!! I have not snored since my last time I was at this weight in 2002. Now I know that I have a problem! As if I didn't before. I've always had a problem but I've spent 2012 choosing to indulge 60 pounds back onto my body. This is my third relapse back into overweight and there is nothing about me that feels good about it. I often wake at night at 5:30am and I stare at my one year old. I begin to experience feelings of guilt and self-hate. I admit I ate the moment I gave birth. I breastfed for a short time and just felt hungry all the time. Then I came home, a little blue and sooooooo tired. I ate for energy. I ate for all the stressful moments and then I ate just because it was there. Mindless eating is no joke. I was at home all day and I used it to fill every void that I was experiencing. I became a relapse statistic.
Any of us who have been there don't want to hear the fact that we're likely to gain back all the hard work we've put into it. We begin to experience feelings of, "Why bother?" That's not the right attitude to have. We let our feelings of failure, fears and our negative attitudes negate our hard work and determination.
We can't give up on us! I won't give up on me and you should not give up on you!! Start anew this year! Yes, write down those resolutions. Don't let the negative others affect you. You are your own worst enemy when a relapse happens. I'm excited to begin again and this time, I want to record these moments. I'm going to be detailed as regularly as possible. Its time consuming but I've created special shortcuts to save as much time as possible.
My starting weight: 260.2
My WW Points allotted right now is: 40 with the 49 weekly points allowance
For those who track calories that equals to an allowed calorie range of 1600-1900 calories
Some people can track activity in order to add those calories or points back to consume. The above is just what I'm allotted without activity.
And today I have my pics to share with you.
For some reason, the caramel almond butter with a rice cake pic did not survive! Bah Technology! LOL!
I had Shrimp and Broccoli with about a cup of Fried Rice
Caramel Rice Cake with Caramel Almond Butter (OMG YUM!)
4oz pork loin (by weight) Baked Potato with measured sour cream and butter and carrots
The loin was made by Hormel and grilled. I baked the potatoes in the microwave and the carrots were canned and microwaved. Easy Peasy!!
I've had water all day today with a half and half tea at lunch. I have six points left and my goal was not to eat after nine. We'll see how that goes. I did exercise a little today. I did 8 minutes of light cardio while my little one was playing in the kitchen. He is easily amused. LOL!
Tomorrow I cook breakfast! Yay!
