Yesterday, at work, I came in GUNS BLAZING, because I had CONQUERED THE WORLD with my WEIGHT LOSS BLOG! Hoooooooray! Weeeeeeee! Huzzaaahhh!!!!!
Then I sat at work all day. And at about 4:00pm, I was starving. We’re talking ravenous. Like, I wanted to eat an entire pizza. Or an entire bucket of ice cream. Something in its entirety.
But I didn’t – and this is the part that astounds me. All I could think about was this damn blog, and anyone who happens to come across it. You people are going keep me accountable, and that’s magical! But I still had the problem of my hunger.
First thing I did? Drank water. I have a Camelbak water bottle, and I’m becoming emotionally attached to it. I satisfies my oral fixation because you have to bite the spout to get to the water. That might sound ridiculous, but I drink SO much more water when I’m drinking out of that bottle.
Second thing I did? Whined about it. (OK let’s be honest – this was probably the first thing I did, and THEN I got off my ass to get water.)
Then I ate an apple. I have to have really good, portioned snacks at work, or I will eat an entire box of Wheat Thins. Or Cheez-Its. Or sugar cubes. (What? I like sugar.)
And lastly, I opened the Weight Watchers mobile app on my iPhone. I knew that if I looked at my points for the day, and how I had used some of my extra weekly points on Saturday, that I would not want to ruin what I have going for me.
I have to give mad props to the WW Mobile app. Once you get the hang of it, it makes tracking points so easy. There a bunch of awesome recipes, and my absolute favorite part – reminders. So this is my day:
WW Mobile: Have you tracked your breakfast?
Liz: Why, yes I have, WW! Thank you so much for keeping tabs on me!
WW Mobile: Have you tracked your lunch?
Liz: Oh my goodness, I had forgotten, thank you for the reminder!
WW Mobile: Have you tracked your dinner?
Liz: You shut your dirty mouth.
That’s usually how it goes.
Tomorrow – stay tuned for how I fair at the potluck we have at work today. This may all end in tears.
