I know that this is a total shocker to all of you.
Well, maybe not exactly shy, but annoyed, frustrated and then embarrassed.
If you have been reading my blog lately, you know that I am on a weight loss journey.
I was really hoping that it would be more of a 6 mile run rather than a 26.2 marathon.
I have been doing Weight Watchers. When I first started, I was doing really well.
Then I got sick.
Not the” lose weight cause I’m sick,” sickness.
More like the “gain 8 lbs. cause I’m sick,” sickness.
It has been awesome!
Well, I am all better and I ended up 2lbs. heavier than when I started Weight Watchers.
I was ticked!
To say the least.
I jumped back on my ww schedule and didn’t lose a flippin pound!
So, I thought, screw it and I ate whatever I wanted…for 10 days.
A lot of whatever I wanted.
I didn’t gain, but I sure as heck didn’t lose anything either.
I love Dr. Oz! Really, I love him! I want to go on his show.
Why am I telling you this random thing about me?
Well, he has this thing that he is doing with WW. Transformation Nation.
I thought, “what the heck, I will sign up.” I could win a million dollars. I guess I could use a million dollars..
So, I filled out the questionnaire, answered a zillion questions and ended up what my daily calorie intake should be to lose weight & to to be exercising 3x a week.
Holy crap people-2500 calories. Now, I realize that this is not an exact science, but I now know that I have not been eating enough points. My mother has been telling me this for weeks. (she used to be a ww leader)
I am ashamed to say that I didn’t listen to her, but yet I will listen to a total stranger (Dr. Oz)
So, I have been eating more food than I usually do. Good Food. Lots of veggies & fruits and I upped my dairy intake. (again, my mom told me to do this awhile ago…I am hanging my head in shame)
I upped my point total by 5 with this week. (in addition to my activity points)
I am happy to report-the scale moved today!
I am still up from where I started ww, but I have to let that go.
A loss is a loss.
So, this week-down 1.4lbs.
A totally random subject change in the same post…cause that’s how I roll.
Anyway…people have asked me how I kicked my Diet Coke habit?
Honestly, I did it Cold Turkey. I haven’t had a cold, burny, Diet Coke in 56 days. (yes, I know that I made up the word “burny,'” but if you drink soda-you know exactly what I am talking about)
I have tasted one though. Unfortunately, it was not good. I was a little sad about that. I still wanted it to taste sooo good.
This is going to sound totally random, but I miss the addiction.
I miss the fact that in my mind-a Diet Coke could fix a bad day.
Does that make sense?
I don’t miss the drink, I miss the Diet Coke 2pm treat.
Am I totally on my own here?
I know that this is weird, but I can’t be the only one who feels this way.
I have found a treat that I like..a lot.
It helps with the whole missing my diet coke habit.
flavored, carbonated water that I get at Costco. It’s flavored with splenda and no calories or weird ingredients that I can’t pronounce.
They are a little more pricey-so if you pick some up, don’t share them with your kids!
Another treat that I found that is oh so yummy!
Dark Chocolate Mint M&M’s!
My cute husband brought a bag home for me the other day and I could have just kissed him when I tasted them.
The dark chocolate is usually not my favorite-but these M&M’s are delish! 1 single serving bag is 6 points-but they are much more rich that regular milk chocolate. So, 1 bag was more than enough of a treat.
Try these things:
Dark Chocolate M&M’s
Darigold Cottage Cheese (at costco and oh so good!
The Bathroom is finally finished!
Can’t wait to show you the pics!
