This morning started out like most days. I ate oatmeal for breakfast. Somewhere between breakfast and lunch, I decided to start the Weight Watchers program by tracking my foods. It took a lot of time today for set up. On most items I wanted to input the nutrition values and obtain points values rather than just pick from a list. I just wanted more accuracy. I really liked their online tools. I think they’re very powerful; I’m contemplating taking over the world with them.
My daily allotment of points is 30. I get an extra 35 for the week to use for overflow or special treats or whatever. They don’t carry over to the next week so I won’t be able to get the rest on a Michael C. Fina Gift Certificate. Go figure.
By the end of the day I used 36 points (30 daily points + 6 weekly).
I think I could have done better if I had started the diet in the morning. I would have used fat free half and half which would have saved me 2 points. I would have skipped or limited some of the meatballs I ate as a snack. It’s OK though, tomorrow is a new day.
Some of the hunger I was having may have been because I’m dieting. You know, the brain knows there’s a diet and is now hungrier knowing it can’t have this or that.
Time to “reacquaint” ourselves with the gym. It’s been over 3 weeks since we’ve gone.
