no choice day 5-- cheat day

Friday, April 25, 2014

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!

    Being unprepared leaves us in such a mess. I hate, loathe and despise mornings so I have learned that I need a backup plan. A second set of workout clothes and old shoes lives in a bag in the car and a breakfast meal of instant oatmeal and canned fruit sits in a desk drawer at work for just those kinds of mornings. I am luck that the cafeteria has healthy choices available for lunch every day or I'd have an easy lunch option in the drawer, too.
    Hope you have a terrific dinner out and enjoy your weekend.
