I always believe that a Monday gives you a fresh start! As much as Monday seems to be the most-dreaded day of the week, I try to look at it as a new beginning. I love to wake up to a new day and a new set of challenges.
Here I am, on day 4, and I had a big challenge today. I caved, and gave into my love of potato chips. The great thing about WW is I can have the chips, but I have to keep it to the serving size…that’s the challenge. There are certain foods that some people just can’t stop at the serving size, and this is the food for me. I do not have a sweet tooth, I have a salty-crunchy-fat-tooth!
Potato chips are 4 WW points per serving. When you look at it that way, you think 4 points is not such a big deal. But, those darn little points add up and before you know it, you can be near your daily points range before noon. (Yes, I speak from experience!) Today’s lunch was tuna (2 points) dill relish (0 points) mustard (0 points) 1 tbsp. of mayonnaise (1 point) 2 slices whole wheat bread (3 points) potato chips (4 points) side salad with fresh lime juice as dressing (0 points). All together, this makes for a 10 point lunch. Not a bad lunch…if you don’t count all those chips that somehow made their way down my throat as I was preparing my lunch…so I’ll count 2 servings and eat my points…literally.
One thing I absolutely LOVE about WW is, almost all fruits and veggies are 0 points. Avocado, potatoes, and some other ones I don’t know off the top of my head have points, but for the most part fruits and veggies are 0. I could eat raw veggies all day, and sometimes I do, so this helps me out a lot.
I have my dinner planned for the night already, and I’ll go over my daily allowance by a few, but that’s ok. I’m human, I am trying, and eating all the extra fruit and veggies has me feeling really good. Can’t wait to see what it’s going to do for my skin and nails.
Lesson today: Keep the damn chips out of the house! Sorry family, I know you love them too, but they are going to sabotage me!! I asked this on Facebook today, but in case you didn’t see it, I’ll ask again…what food do you have to break up with? Obviously for me, it’s chips…stupid, stupid chips!!!
You’ve Been Beautified!
