Back in the Saddle

Time to get real with myself (and all of you)--I've been way off track this week! I haven't been bingeing or going completely hog-wild, but I definitely haven't been making the best choices. I haven't been getting enough water, or exercise, and all of these things combined just have me feeling.... BLAH. I also have not gone to the grocery store in over a week. I haven't tracked my food all week, either, and that just has me feeling all kinds of lost. 

So, I'm back in the saddle, starting..... NOW. Food log for the day: 

I have not eaten that cookie yet... I actually got 2 cookies with my meal, but I'm leaning towards not eating any of them at all. I mean, 4 items and just about all of my points are gone?!? I'm posting on Instagram too so people can quickly give me a virtual slap!

So, here's the plan. It's just me with the kids tonight and we have no real food in the house. Will probably go to Chick-fil-a and get grilled nuggets and a side salad for a total of 5 points. Tomorrow, I have my WW meeting at 8am, followed by hair appointment at 10, after which I will be going to the grocery store. I will meal plan and write out the grocery list tonight after the kids go to bed. 

We're not perfect all the time, and we're going to mess up. It's a fact. The best we can hope for is progress, not perfection.

Update: Crisis averted! Cookies are now in the kitchen trash, far away from my cubicle. Special thanks to the Lovely Ladies group for giving me a kick in the pants!


  1. I am very proud of you! I have a hard time throwing away food once it's in my hands. Christina 2 Cookies 0. Yay!

  2. I feel guilty throwing away food, but sometimes it just feels good to have that power!!

  3. I love the control that comes with throwing food away. :) I feel guilty too, but I still do it :)

  4. I always feel guilty throwing away food but good for you for making the right choice!!!

    Welcome back to tracking and kicking ass!

  5. Throwing away cookies is a great way to get back in the saddle. Great job!

  6. I am going to Subway for supper tonight. I try to avoid the cookies but they are so delicious! Cookies are definitely one of the things I can't control myself around so it's best if I don't even indulge.


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