Climbing out of the hole I'm in...

I did not get back on track Monday, and yesterday could have been better. I almost wanted to skip my WW meeting, but didn't. I also planned to use a No Weigh pass, but didn't. I figured that I should step on the scale and face the music. It wasn't that bad considering the poor choices I have made over the past several days. I bought a 3-month journal, and committed to getting back on plan. This morning I got up early and packed a healthy lunch. I had some leftover Whitt's Barbecue from last night, so I made a wrap with Flatout bread, lots of spinach, 1 wedge of Laughing Cow cheese, and about 3 oz. of BBQ. It looked yummy, and I can't wait to have it for lunch. I also have a sweet potato, and I had oatmeal for breakfast. I WILL STAY ON PLAN THIS WEEK. I CAN DO IT.

I have journaled everything so far, and am hoping my new food journal will motivate me to get back to journaling. When I first got back on plan last year, I journaled every day for over 70 days. My goals is to journal every day for the next 3 months to fill up this journal. Even if I get off track, I will journal because I know it helps me. I am also going to make a conscious effort to check off all the little boxes for the healthy guidelines. Even the milk and oil and multivitamin. Yes, it's back to basics for me.

***for those of you who have a Whitt's Barbecue in their area - they not only have Nutrition information on their website, but they have also calculated Weight Watcher's points! I thought that was great! And I wrote them an email to let them know how much I appreciated it. And it's not as bad as I thought - 3 ounces of pork barbecue is 5 points (62/4/0 for 1 oz).

Sometimes the best you can do is do your best. So, you're rockin' it.

One day at a time, girl.


I saw that you couldn't post on my blog. Sorry. I don't know why. I even turned off the Word Verify dealie.

Every time you pick yourself up and 'get back on track' you are closer to your destination. It is when you give up that you lose - you are not giving up, therefore...You WILL succeed!

Good luck with being honest and disciplined in tracking what you eat - it reallly does help
