Getting To The Point

I have to admit, lately I’ve not been as focused on my good eating habits and workout regimen as I had hoped to be.

A bag of pretzel or coconut M&M’s here….

A Monday evening glass (or two) of wine during “The Bachelorette” there…

A trip to Red Robin for Elliott’s graduation…

Too many Tootsie Rolls…

But, as of today, Monday, June 14th, 2010, I am going to “turn over a new leaf”, start with a clean slate, whatever….

I’m returning to the Weight Watchers point system and I am going to have you all be my witnesses and hold me accountable.

Each day, at the bottom of my regular post, I’ll include a brief summary of the foods I consumed and the point value assigned to them along with what I did exercise-wise. I know this may sound boring, but it will help me stay on track so I won’t be tempted as much because I am a TERRIBLE liar and so I will not sit here and say that I ate a rice cake when I really ate a double Whopper.

What I post that I ate, I ate.

I will also mention that in the interest of “all things in moderation” I will tend to splurge on the weekends. So when you see some good stuff on Saturday & Sunday, don’t think that I am slippin’….it’s just that I refuse to go through life saying that I will never eat another cheeseburger or ice cream cone or drink another margarita. That’s just not me, BUT I can eat clean and put in extra time at the gym or run during the week, but “enjoy life” a little during the weekends. I’ve done it before and I can do it again.

According to WW, I should consume 26 points per day. I am going to stick to 25 for now and then revisit in a month or so.

With that said, I am looking forward to my oatmeal and 1/2 banana this morning along with my coffee with MEASURED Coffee-mate!

Thanks for helping me get in shape for the Las Vegas Rock N Roll Half Marathon in early December.

I promise there will still be fun posts and still some yummy recipes, though!

So, please…..if you visit for the food, please be assured that I will still be baking and cooking and grilling! I may just have to learn how to make all sorts of awesome goodies to share with you all and NOT touch them myself!

Again, thank you for your support.

Happy Monday!

  1. Hi Amy – I am actually doing (trying to do) Weight Watchers also. I go to the meetings to weigh in weekly. I have been off a very slow start. I think your posting of your food and points will help me stay on track. I agree with you on the everything in moderation. I too splurge a little on the weekend and try to be extra good during the week.

    I look forward to reading your posts and getting some ideas as to how to use up my points. I am at 25 points a day also!!


  2. I never measure the Coffeemate Creamer either 😉 Don’t be too hard on yourself. You lead a balanced and healthy life. You’re a beautiful person — inside and out!
