Day One: Dang Corn Nuggets

Today I have been fighting off stress eating, boredom eating and "I think I'm starving" eating. The only time I gave in was at the cafeteria and those lunch ladies had made Corn Nuggets. If you don't know what they are, well they are pretty much deep fried sweet cream corn. They are good is what they are...I had six! I looked up the points value and all I could find to compare them to was Church's Chicken Regular Size Sweet Corn Nuggets........14 POINTS!!!!!
So there you have it, I ate something that created me to go way over my points but I will use my "extra" points for today and start again tomorrow. That's what I like about WW is that I always have tomorrow to pick myself up and that is what I will do!

Kashi Strawberry Cereal Bar-2 pts
Banana-2 pts
sm. glass Ocean Spray Diet Cranberry Juice-0 pts

1/2 Croissant-3 pts
1/2 c. tuna salad-7 pts
salad (lettuce, radish, tomato, cucumber, peas)-0 pts
balsamic vinaigrette (sm. amount)-0 pts
3 pc. pickled okra-0 pts
6 pc. corn nuggets (see above!)-14 pts
1 c. cantaloupe, pineapple, honeydew-1 pt

Small Boneless Pork Chop-5 pts
broccoli and cauliflower (steamed)- 0 pts
1 packet of WW shredded cheese- 2 pts
1 no sugar added apple sauce snack cup- 1 pt

I "get" 25 points a day and I used.....37 points.

Getting Back on the Wagon

I fell and I fell hard. Actually, I did fall out of the desk chair here at home, but that is just due to my clumsiness, not my Weight Watcher journey. Ok, back to the wagon. When I get busy, when I get stressed I eat! Even when I am sick, unless REALLY SICK, I eat like it is going out of style. So these past two weeks and then some days before that, I have been eating. Yes, eating is a good thing to stay alive and all, but I have been overeating, not tracking my points and just running amuck with food. I'm very good at excuses to eat. I had a good hair I saw a baby My son had his first birthday This is one of the last night's I'm "splurging" (this was last night). You get the picture.

Today I weigh in. Today I see that magic number that is going to shock me into getting back on the program. Tracking, counting points, exercising. This works for me. I have Victoria Secret underoos that I couldn't wear before October to prove that this works for me.

Here is my challenge to myself and for any others that care. I WILL post everyday for a week (to start off with) my food intake for the day. I will start tomorrow, after weigh-in. I feel like this will keep me honest, it will hold me accountable and maybe just maybe help in my effort to climb back on the wagon.

Just Doing It!

Case and I went for a walk this evening at Sedgwick County Park....great park! I walked, he strolled. It was nice, it was breezy, it was light, it was fun. I need more of this, more movement. I didn't break a heavy sweat, but I didn't just stroll either.
As I was walking I started passing people running, ok, they passed me, but you know what I mean. I noticed they would pass another person in the opposite direction and give each other a high five and say, "One more, we can do it." One runner even said, "I love you, one more." I smiled at that same runner as she passed me. She yelled back at me, "That girl I just passed got me into this mess!"I told her to keep it up, it was pretty inspiring. And it was. Running has never been something I have liked to do. It has never been something I've been good at. Back in my softball days, I HATED when we had to run. HATED. In July 2009 my friend, Wendy and I joined a boot camp. Oy! I had to run. Shin splints galore. I just don't run.... I don't plan on starting to run or train for a 5K or anything like that, but I do want to be more active. I'm not going to lose the weight I want to lose by just tracking points, I need to move! That girl who yelled out to me, she wasn't a "skinny" girl, she wasn't a girl I would imagine running. But she was running. Maybe one day I will be able to run, but for now walking will do. I can go pretty fast with that Chico Stroller in front of me and hey, Case enjoys it as well.
