Saturday Weigh-In + Struggles

Saturday's weigh-in was disappointing--up 2.4! I know I was on track all week, but I'd been *ahem* constipated since Tuesday, so I'm sure that had a little to do with it. (In case you're wondering, all the prune juice and laxatives I'd taken Friday and Saturday finally took effect on Sunday. Sweet relief.)

My husband's parents came in town for a quick visit (they live in Texas) over the weekend, so we pretty much ate our way through New Orleans. We had dinner at Mid-City Pizza (obvious), lunch at Ba Chi Canteen (Vietnamese), and dinner at The Galley (seafood). I actually did NOT blow all my points while they were here, so I was pretty happy about that.

I went to T@rget Sunday evening to pick up a few groceries, and saw that they had Ben & Jerry's Peanut Butter World in stock. I've never tried it, but it sounded delicious. My weakness is anything peanut butter and chocolate, and well, this just sounded amazing:

Unfortunately, it tasted just as good as I'd hoped and I pretty much ate the whole thing. I had the points for it, so I counted it and moved on. 

Yesterday had me in a funk after work, and I binged for the first time in several months--pita chips, 6 mini frosted sugar cookies, 2.5 servings of potato chips, and french onion dip. I'm 21 points in the hole for the week now, but I should be able to make up most of that in activity this week (too bad I didn't exercise yesterday or today). I was being pretty hard on myself about the whole thing, but I stopped and although I still regret it, I'm moving on from it. It happened, it's done, and I can't change that--but I can move forward

Here's to improving the rest of the week!


  1. Slip ups happen. I am glad you tracked everything. Also, you're going to make it up in AP. And yes, you will move forward! I might be preaching what I don't practice myself, but don't let the number on the scale matter so much. Count your progress in other ways if possible - like tracking despite the binge/funk. Sending you lots of warm thoughts...

    1. Thanks for the encouragement. I haven't actually managed to earn any APs yet, but I'm still tracking and OWNING this week's poor food decisions :)


Hi, and thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet. I'd love to hear from you!
