Day 52, New Year

family day
Happy Family Day to all my Ontario friends.

Three days done. The verdict: SUCCESS. I had no doubt if I focused and planned and made conscious decisions about food that I could eat stay on track and make better choices over the weekend than I have been the last few weeks, but doing it, is empowering and confidence building and proves that I can change habits if I want to.

I woke up this morning with a sinus headache that would not quit all day, so I was not as ambitious or interesting in my cooking today.  Since I was slogging over laundry for over two hours and I still had over 40 Weekly Points left I decided to treat myself to Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I have two favourite chocolate combinations, chocolate and peanut butter and chocolate and mint, today the peanut butter won out.

Today’s meals were sorely lacking in fruit and vegetables but I’ll make up for it tomorrow, I normally have 3-5 servings of fruit a day plus 3-5 servings of vegetables.

My week goes Thursday to Wednesday and so far, I’ve used 10 of 49 of my Weekly Points and I’m looking for Tuesday and Wednesday to be easy-breezy days so I’m right on track right now.  I didn’t have plans to eat out this week, the first week since I started the program, so that helps a lot in being able to control the Weekly Points since I usually save them for that.

Tomorrow is back to work and back to my normal eating schedule….and…Wednesday is weigh-in #8.

  1. Glad that you were able to stay on track all weekend! Good luck for Wednesday!

  2. Cool pics of the food! When you can include Reece's PB cups in your daily points allowance, that's a program worth following!!!! I love the PB and chocolate combo too. Baskin and Robbins chocolate, PB ice cream has always been my weakness!

  3. Making a plan and sticking to it IS empowering and confidence-building! Way to go this weekend, Enz!!!
