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 flipflopfollies.com 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.
