Uugh I’m feeling gross again!... I was feeling better yesterday, had recovered from all that weekend chocolate… Wednesday I ate right and exercised right, yesterday I ate right, then in the afternoon I was hungry, so I did the right thing and ate some grapes, but shortly after I was hungry again, I could just have eaten a bowl of porridge, but we were just about to go out, and then we would be having tea.
We always shop for groceries at teatime, and eat slightly later than usual. It’s not a problem. Sometimes I’m really hungry, but I can be hungry, hunger isn’t an emergency.
But last night I experienced the “don’t go shopping when you’re hungry” thing. In the supermarket I was just wishing they would lock me in so I could eat everything in the store!... They had fresh cream doughnuts that I hadn’t had for years. I decided in the car on the way to the store that we would forget the diet for tonight and indulge in pizza and pudding. I bought deep pan pizza – hasn’t happened in years probably. I always buy thin and crispy, ever since hubby expressed that preference.
And I sooo wanted cherry pie for pud, but thankfully they didn’t have any, so we came away with a pie that would just last for one meal instead of two. So the damage was limited to one meal. So I weighed this morning and 2.5 pounds dropped off overnight. After eating all that!.... derr?...
And actually, having totted up the points, I am even still within my ww allowance…. So I am obviously better at bingeing now than I used to be (a whole carrier bag of food… sometimes bought a little bit at a time from different stores, depending on what sort of binge food I was buying…)
and I went to bed early last night and slept right through… never happens… so I must have been really tired. Today I’m not feeling great. But I think it’s just my body saying “oh no she’s on a diet again”… I do seem to get really tired when I either start a diet or start exercising a lot more than usual all of a sudden. It’s ok. It’ll pass.
I do think I might have set my BLC24 goal a little high though. Staying within my ww daily and walking points without eating the weekly points might be just a little too ambitious. But at least if I have that goal, then when I cave in I’ve got that “safety net” (as the ww lady called it) of the weekly 49 points to cover me. So although I haven’t succeeded with my BLC24 goal for the week, I am still on plan as far as ww are concerned.
And I guess my body must need those extra points. But it seems to need them every now and then, rather than every day, so I guess I need to get used to judging when those times are, and not just eating those points because I can…
BLC24 is going well. Day 2 yesterday. I am remembering that I just have to abide by the three golden rules and all will be well! Chat 3 days a week, log my weight on Wednesday, and don’t start a new thread or disappear! All the rest is optional, and as long as I remember that I will continue to enjoy it.
The other ladies on the team are all so lovely! Seriously supportive! Thank you ladies!
Oh, and yesterday I decided on my goals for the next 12 weeks. My smart goals for BLC24 are (still!)
To lose at least 1 pound each week for at least 11 of the BLC24 weeks
To stay within my daily ww points (including any points earnt for walking) each day
To walk at least 20 minutes at least 5 times each week
To drink at least 1 pint of water each day
To do Callanetics “10 years younger in 10 hours DVD” twice a week
