Last night was really, really hard for me to stay on track! The kids were at my parents' house, Jerry was at work, and I was bored. I'd finished my puzzle, I'm not reading a book right now, and there was nothing on TV. Even after I ate my snack (my usual Weight Watchers brownie and wine) I was really itching to eat.
I ended up eating two Dove Promises and having two more ounces of wine. That's actually really impressive to me, because I wanted to eat an entire box of cereal ;) The only thing that stopped me was knowing that I was going to be posting my food log here--I am just really determined not to binge, because I really don't want to have to post about it.
So, even though it wasn't a great day, it could have been MUCH worse. This is the first week I stayed out of the negative in a long time. From Wednesday to Tuesday, a full week, I used all of my weekly PointsPlus and all but ONE of my Activity PointsPlus. So I came out ahead, which is good. (A few people have asked me what all the numbers mean, so I think I'll write about that in a separate post to explain further.)
My weight was down three pounds for the week (yay!)--I guess that's what happens when I track EVERYTHING ;) Unfortunately, my foot was still really hurting this morning, so I'm still trying to rest as much as possible. It felt a little better today, but definitely still painful. When I'm not moving much, though, I don't get any activity PointsPlus, so it's going to be hard to rein it in a little this week.
Jerry and I went to see a matinee showing of Mockingjay while the kids were at school. I didn't want to end up ordering popcorn at the show, or worse, a big old cookie from Mrs. Fields, so I made some popcorn at home, and then bagged it up to take with us.
We attempted to go see Mockingjay last weekend, but it was sold out of two showings! We're used to being two of about six people in the theater when we go. Today, we went to an 11:50 show, and we were the only ones in there until just before the show started, and then there were about six people total.
I love the seats at our theater. They were just installed about a year ago, and they're so comfy! They're La-Z-Boy style, so we could recline and put our feet up. Perfect to rest my foot! ;)
The movie was good. It didn't follow the book as closely as the first two movies did, but I liked it. I wish that the second part was out already--it's going to be hard to wait to see it!
