On Monday, I made sure to eat breakfast, which was good for me, but for some reason has always given me the most awful stomach ache for about an hour. That’s actually why I used to never eat anything when before work. My “breakfast” is actually eaten after I get to work, and am up for probably an hour. Strangely enough, even drinking cold or warm water will do that. Very strange.
My calories on Monday were good, but over the weekend Ihad made cinnamon rolls which were sitting on the counter, and gosh darnit, every time I walked by it, I took the fork sitting there and took a bite or two. Probably ended up being about 2 cinnamon rolls total. Definitely not good, but my calorie count for the day was 1897, so not horribly over my points.
Then on Tuesday, I definitely did better. Ate breakfast, lunch was from the cafeteria because I forgot my lunch, and it wasn’t too bad actually. After I got home, I ate 1 roll’s worth of fork bites (then Jeff finished it off Thank goodness!), and now it’s gone. So even with the one roll, my calories were 1,749. At the top but still in my limits!
The sad part of these last several days is that the only reason I was at the top or above my range on these days is because of the darn cinnamon rolls. Luckily, that’s over now. I should have wrapped them up and put them out of sight, but I didn’t . Lesson learned.
And despite all of this havoc I wreaked, I was down 4.4 pounds last night at weight watchers! The loss makes up for my big gain last week, and then some. I am officially down to 284.6 pounds, which is so awesome! My next goal is to be in the 270’s. I think the big loss can be attributed to my paying attention to everything I ate, and tracking everything as well over the weekend, which has always been my downfall. I also exercised 5 times in the last week. It’s so awesome to finally have the pieces of the puzzle starting to come together. I mean that it was almost instinctual to think about what I was eating, and to make it a little bit of a healthier choice. And the exercise is just something I have to do, so I do it.
