Snow day

Today is a SNOWDAY!! Yay! So I got to sleep in and relax all morning which was lovely! I cleaned up the apartment this weekend so I have no housekeeping to do either!! I am going to work on some homework today to get ahead for the week. What a great way to start the week prepared and ready.

I do need to get some produce tomorrow to keep up on my veggies. I ate my last sweet potato last night oh my yum! I had no idea that I would enjoy them as much as I do. When I first started eating them I really didnt care for them, I was a little freaked out about the sweetness in a veggie. It took me 2 or 3 times to really start to enjoy them, I have found that they are more tasty if I let them cool a bit before eating them. <- wow that was a little off topic. Anyways I do need to make a produce stop.

I also need to look at my meals plans for the week and figure out some menus. I know that I have a birthday dinner at Margaritas (yes again) on Saturday night to keep in mind. Last week I planned ahead and earned a lot of activity points to balance out my meals out which obviously didn't work for me. SO instead this week I will just try very hard not to eat any more of my 35 weekly points (I have already used 5) so that I can have them as a backup.

Since this past week I have just been insatiably hungry, I want to eat all the time. Nothing too bad, its not like cravings but rather just a desire to eat. I have tried eating popcorn as a mindless munching food but it isn't working. I have been downing water like nobodys business the past couple days and still I am dying to eat. I am not sure what I am going to do. There arent any 0 point veggies that I like but maybe I should try some filling foods and use the set points.

I am so worried that I will not lose anything again this week, it is just not fair. I am staying within my points! Not eating everything I want, eating healthy, and working out....what is it that I am doing wrong? Two weeks of gaining is just too much I must lose next week or I will probably cry on the scale.

Oh lord that stinks! You are doing everything right but maybe it will catch up.
Eat all your regular points try not to eat your activity points or weekly points this week.
The trainer at my gym said to burn 500 calories a day at the gym maybe you can try that and see how it works.
Good Luck1

It is so hard not to eat those weekly points but I am going to try. It seems like whenever I work out though I end up gaining! It is so backwards/frustrating. I will try to keep up on my activity because it does make me feel better and ups my water intake for sure.
