Today, I stayed within my points and I did a workout at lunch time.
The thing of it is, I kept thinking about all the things I couldn't eat... all day today. I can't keep doing this. I'm really not trying to be super strict, I'm just eating when I'm hungry. Except I've spent the last 43 years of my life, eating whenever I felt like it, not when my body needed it. This is going to be a tough one to move past.
But I really want to move past it. I just have to find a happy balance in there somewhere.
And 21 points isn't a whole heck of a lot of food! I think I just need to be smart about finding filling foods that are low in points.
I bought a pretty little notebook over the weekend to start tracking my food in. After I've tried for weeks to write down what I eat, I thought it might help if I made it fun. So I found this cute little spiral hard bound notebook with a rubber strap around it to keep it closed. It's blue with tan polka dots. And it's small enough to carry in my purse so I can write down what I eat as I eat it. We'll see how it goes, but I'm really trying to take steps in the right direction.
I just need to not obsess about this, but instead, just try to make it through each day. So this is just one day... on track.
(uh, oh, my tummy is grumbling...)
