Another Friday, another weigh in. I posted the other day that I thought I might end up with a small gain for this week. The good news is that my weight went down a bit so I ended up losing .2 pounds, to end up at 163.6 pounds.
The good news is that I had a loss, albeit a small one. However, that is way better than having a gain. That said, I am exactly where I was 4 weeks ago on July 18, when I weighed in at 163.6 pounds. I haven’t eaten badly over the last month, but the activity has been low.
As I posted the other day, this has been a difficult week with having to do a lot of driving this week, with something to do almost every day. Tomorrow, my son is moving into his first apartment near school and I have places I need to take my daughter this weekend so I expect the weekend will be difficult. Then, next week should be more normal.
I ended up this week eating almost exactly the amount I ate last week and had a few weekly points left. I burned fewer calories since I spent so much time in the car this week.
Today has ended up being a high point day for food. I’ve eaten 46 points! That is sort of unusual, but I’ve done it bef0re and it works out OK just so long as I keep track for the rest of the week. I looked at the week as a whole rather than paying too much attention to any individual day. I probably will be eating out again tomorrow and Sunday since I’ll be away from home a lot, but those should be fairly low point meals. It is possible to eat out and still be low points.
I ate out Thursday as part of my experiment to see how I do the best in terms of when I eat my points. Even though I ate out (a You Pick2 with a salad and soup at Panera) I only ate 26 points for the day. So, I know it is totally possible to eat out and still eat within my daily points or just eat a few weekly points (today, I wanted food that was more points but I know that I can’t do that every day or even every week).
