Thought I screwed up last night. REALLY thought I screwed up. I ate breakfast at home (waffles) so I used a fair amount of points. I knew what was being served for dinner so I planned my lunch accordingly. Which means I had lots of free points fruits and veggies. However, I was trying something new in my lunch and i hated it...so I threw it away. So that left me with JUST fruits and veggies. No problem...all is good. I was actually satisfied after I ate. The problem came when I was halfway through Zumba....my stomach started to complain. I was hungry! I made it through zumba and went home. While dinner was being finished up, I had a string cheese and one slice of bread with a light skein of butter on it....THEN I ate dinner. And about an hour after dinner i was still hungry so I had some baked chips. ~~~~Slaps forehead!~~~~ So i was disappointed with my day.
BUT this morning I went online to face the music and put in my 'additional' food and of course to take out my uneaten food from lunch (the stuff that went into the garbage). I refused to look at my totals until it was all entered. LOW AND BEHOLD...I WAS STILL UNDER BUDGET! Yes, that deserved caps!
Fast forward to today. I packed food in my lunchbox that I KNOW that I'll like. Because my breakfast today was a bit high. So by the time breakfast, lunch and snacks are eaten....and I get home from Zumba, I will have only 9 points for dinner. Not a problem, we have a delicious watermelon in the fridge...and the grapes are pretty darn tasty too. And peanut butter and jelly sandwiches are my go-to dinner when I'm home alone (which I will be) so I'll be within budget...AS LONG AS I AM NOT SO HUNGRY THAT I JUST GOBBLE FOOD LIKE A STARVING PIG!
Didn't weigh myself today (I try not to weigh after my late night dinners) ...but yesterday morning I was showing down on the scales...so I was pretty happy. I'm gonna do this!!! No ifs ands or buts!
