Only lost 2/10ths of a pound, but at least it was a loss. I was convinced I was going to gain 3 pounds after the mac & cheese and sausage & peppers fiasco's.
I did quite horrible yesterday, too, after weigh in. I had a food-free-for-all. I still can't believe all I ate. I'm so embarrased about it, I don't want to tell you what I ate. I really done. But I think that's what this whole blog is all about... being accountable. So it's my duty to disclose all the junk I ate. So here goes...
- Egg beater omlet with onions, pepper & tomatoes
- Wheat toast with real butter and orange preserves
- Oatmeal with brown sugar and raisins
- Cheese Fries: French fries drenched in cheese sauce and topped with melted grated cheese and bacon strips and tons of fattening ranch dressing
- Ruffles Chips (about half a bag) and a block of 1/3 less fat cream cheese and also about half a container of Heluva Good French onion sour cream dip
- Pillsbury Chocolate Chip cookies (about 10-12 of them)
- Haagen-Dazs Dulce de Leche ice cream (a small 6 ounce tub)
I have no idea how to count that many points. I don't even want to attempt. I'll just say that I killed all of my flex points for the week and call it done and behind me.
I ate very sensible today. Within my 22 daily points.
I did gain 2 pounds when I weighed myself, but I fully expected 5 pounds so I wasn't too upset by 2 pounds. I'm going to work out in over time this coming week. I have 5 pounds to lose in the next 3 weeks so I have to step it up. I really don't think it's going to happen, but I'm not going to stop trying.
I made Taco Soup tonight. I've been having pinto beans for lunch about every other day for the past couple of months because I read that pinto beans will lower your cholesterol by 20% if you have a cup every day. I don't have any problems with my cholesterol but I'm all for eating things that will help my body be more healthy. Anyways, so I got the recipe from my mom's blog who got it from JC's blog. I believe it's a WW recipe.
I was a little skeptical of it being only 1 point for a cup so I put it to the test. I looked at all of the labels from the cans and bags of ingredients and wrote down the calories, fat, fiber and sodium. I thought this might knock your socks off to see the totals: 1,740 calories, 5.5 grams fat, 64 grams of fiber, and 10,925 grams of sodium. Man that sounds like alot, huh? But it's not actually. :) Not after you divide the number of servings. I'm not sure if I did mine right because the recipe said it was 15 one-cup servings but I only got 11 one-cup servings. So mine was 2 points per serving. Still it's not bad. 2 points for a cup of soup is great. But the sodium... It ends up being 993 grams of sodium per serving. Yikes! It's so yummy, though.
