Weigh In Day #5 & Monday

Well, I'm not going to complain actually. I'm a pound down, and considering the indulgences this past week, I'm happy with that! Also, when all is said and done, I ended my week over all the POINTS I'm allowed to have, so again, a loss is good!

I am getting nervous though - I only have 4 official weigh ins left until my sister gets here, and we aren't exactly going to be dieting and exercising. She doesn't need to - she's this gorgeous tiny little thing and gaining a few pounds on vacation won't be a big drama because she'll just lose it when she goes home and goes back to eating normally. However I, tend to hold onto weight like winter is setting in and I need to store fat for survival or something, and I really don't want to gain too much weight when she is here, because I still have that damn fire jumping hell run to do in July!
Also, I wanna look cute when we go out together! ;)

I think for this week, I am going to eat my weekly POINTS if it comes up, but I'm not going to "try" to eat more or less or whatever. Also, still need to put a lot more work into balance, being prepared and organized, and on keeping away from the stupid treats. I never used to have these sweet cravings, damnit. ;)

Tuesdays Food

Breakfast/Early Morning: Shake: 2

Morning Tea (cause if you eat scones and drink tea, then it's a tea of some kind): scone w/ jam. (Americans would call it a biscuit, and while I am fine to use their words for things since I do live here, I refuse to call a biscuit a biscuit, when it's clearly a scone. sorry America.) POINTS: 3

Lunch: Toasted sandwich with turkey, avocado and sweet chili sauce. POINTS: 7

Snack: 2 Wasas POINTS: 1

Dinner: Shake. and i finished off the few bites of my daughters steak fajita. POINTS: 3

Chocolate Binge: cadbury creme egg and reeses peanut butter egg. (these weren't at the same time, but good lord.) POINTS: 6

: 35 minutes Jenny. POINTS: 2

*sighs* .. Yeah today wasn't a healthy day at all. I'm not doing very well right now.. there are things going on, reasons and excuses, but they don't matter because when all is said and done, life is always going to have its ups and downs and it's not going to help any to eat cruddy when I'm on a bit of a down trend.
Idk what to say.. just gotta keep on trying.. I have Dorys song in my head right now. "just keep swimmin', just keep swimmin' " .. :)

Daily Points Allowed: 22 + 2 Exercise POINTS = 24
Daily POINTS used: 22/24
Weekly POINTS Used: 0/35
Exercise POINTS Earned: 2
Weekly Exercise: 1 day / 1 day

Mondays Food.

Breakfast: Packet of honey almond flax granola. was in a mad rush.. ate this at work. POINTS: 3.5

Thank god I had these in the house. I love that they are portioned and in their own little packages. Makes it far easier.

Lunch: reduced fat turkey sausage and egg muffin from work. I took out the turkey sausage patty and took off a slice of cheese though. : 5

Snack:  couple of bites of turkey breast. POINTS: 2

Dinner: eggplant rollups with butternut squash, mushroom, red pepper, baby spinach and mozzarella & a salad drizzled with balsamic. oh, also had some sauce on the eggplant rollups. 1/3 of a toasted ciabatta roll.   POINTS:  4

 I messed up my stupid dinner (the cooking, not my points). I was tired and hungry and couldn't be bothered cooking, but knew I had to eat lighter tonight because of the weekend.. so I salted the eggplant, let it sit for 20 minutes blah blah, and then forgot to rinse it and pat it down. The eggplant was disgusting - SO bitter that I couldn't eat it, and I ended up taking out the veggies inside and just eating them, which is why I added the bit of bread to my meal. Ugh.

Snack: 2 Lindor truffles .POINTS:  3

Exercise:  15 minute walk and some ab work. was beyond exhausted. suffice it to say that I have gotten WELL less than my 6 hours a night the last week. :/  POINTS Earned: 1

Daily Points Allowed: 22 + 1 Exercise POINTS = 23
Daily POINTS used: 17.5/23
Unused POINTS to go toward weekly POINTS that I was over: 5.5
Week Ending POINTS: 8.5 OVER total weekly POINTS Allowed.
Exercise POINTS Earned: 1
Weekly Exercise: 5 days / 7 days

Well.. I'm not sure what to think. I'm happy I got the exercise in - even though that last round of exercise was pretty weak.  3 of those exercise sessions were done past midnight.. so honestly, yeah, I'm pretty pleased with myself that I did it at all at this stage. Honestly, I really wouldn't have if it wasn't for this blog, and the promise that i made "out loud" on here that I would sign up for bootcamp the week that I didn't get in 5 days of planned exercise out of 7 days.
As for the food - well we see that it wasn't a great week, but it wasn't as horrendous as it first appears. Most of my food was good ingredients and I ended up only being 8.5 POINTS over for the week. It's interesting.. if I hadn't have drank, I would actually still have been under my weekly points - caramel eggs and fries and all.
The question is - how will weigh in go????


  1. Congratulations on losing! That toasted sandwich looks really delicious. I want one so bad now!

  2. Thank you!! I was so surprised by it! and yeaahhh.. it was a good sandwich! ;)

  3. omg i want that turkey toasted sandwich!!! it looks so yummy!
    Yeah YOUR DOWN!!!! Hows the sleeping goal going? are you getting your minimum hours now?
    I do believe your wrong about your sister, im sure she gains easily enough and will also have to watch her weight whilst on holiday, maybe you two can just get up in the mornings and exercise together to combat any bad eating! ;)And all the walking and dancing you will end up doing will have to count for something! Plus the shopping, i mean change rooms are great for getting your heart rate up! squeezing into jeans and changing clothes is a hard aerobic workout!
