Always have a back-up plan

For the first time in a long time I didn't treat Saturday like my free for all day. I'm a big supporter of having a treat day as I think it helps you stay sane when evil treats are everywhere. My problem is that I typically track after the free for all and can be quite surprised how many points I used up. Typically anhillating the 35 flex points.

Yesterday I made a conscious decision to stick to points and use a couple of flex points. They wouldn't give them to us if we weren't supposed to use them. Due to my free for all week and my tendency of gaining small amounts I wanted to reel it in. Next Saturday I'll have a treat meal but not a treat day. This week I wanted to re-introduce my body to appropriate calories. I had great food yesterday, all within my points plus 2 flex points. I have 33 flex points left, I'm trying to remember when that last happened.

I also updated my tracker, I debated on that but you know what it's better to throw it all out there.

I've already seen the effect of my efforts on the scale. Yesterday before I went to weigh in I was 186 on my home scale, which but me at 184.8 at weigh in. This morning I was 184 on my home scale. The 186 had a lot to do with eating out twice in one day on Friday. I'm working towards a good solid loss on Saturday. I want to make my spring challenge goal of 8lbs in 10 weeks.

Water is on track for the weekend, which is usually not the case. I have no issues drinking water at work but at home it's always a challenge. I drank 2L yesterday, and I have first litre done so far today and 1L sitting beside me right now.

I have a killer tension like headache today that doesn't seem to want to go away, I might not do the running thing today and do yoga instead. I'll see how it goes but there will still be activity no matter what.

I have my food for today completely planned out and now I need to do the second half of my paper due tomorrow.

Have a wonderful Easter Sunday everyone!

Sounds like a good plan. I stopped doing bad full days a long time ago, and instead splurged during a meal. I found that worked a lot better for me. I hope you have a good WI on Saturday, and keep drinking that water! :)

I bet the yoga really helped with the headache!
