Sunday Stuff

I went to the gym and worked out and I LOVED it! I felt so good, and I am proud of me for doing it. I was careful about my knees but I tried everything and I could it.

I got Tip Tagged by Iportion and Living to Feel Good I figure getting tagged twice means I give you two tips. So let me think . . . . mmm . . . what tips can I think of.

I guess my first tip is to allow yourself to eat the food you love. Allow for treats and that keeps you from feeling deprived and breaking down and binging when your willpower is down.

My second is to use this change in your eating to try new things. I have been having fun trying all kinds of new healthy alternatives and it makes it fun. I have also come up with a few new favorites that I would never have thought of.

I went over my goal points yesterday. It wasn't worth it. I had an upset stomach. Ugh. I am thinking of taking the points off my other days.

Food for Sunday
  • 2 points--ww tortilla
  • 2 points--peanut butter
  • 1 point--jelly
  • 0 points--coffee
  • 2 points--ff candy
  • 2 points--egg beater omelet
  • 1 point--ww bread
  • 1 point--low fat margarine
  • 0 points--coffee
  • 3 points--beer
  • 3 points--chicken and veggies
  • 1 point--yogurt
  • 2 point--orange and apple
  • 2 points--candy
  • 2 points--fruit.

I just had to write and say hi, because my baby's (my cat) name is T.C.

I agree 100% with your tips. That is how I am losing it for good this time. Usually by now I would have fallen off but not this time. :-)

I also have a free day!


Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
