The day before Friday...

This morning I am feeling more confident about tomorrow's battle with the scale. I feel like I am doing great regardless of what the scale says. Sometimes I think you just gotta throw the numbers out the window and judge your success by the way you feel, or the way your clothes fit. And as far as clothes go, I think I'm ready for the next size down at Suzy Shier....finally a single digit! I have been waiting for that damn size 9 now for months!! It's going to feel soo good on my next trip into Suzy. Last time I went shopping there I could squeeze into a 9 but they were tight and I ended up getting an 11 but now I think I'm ready for the 9 and just in time to buy some cute new capris!

Amber actually mentioned on her post that she finds that she does better with eating her full points. I have been noticing lately that I have been coming in a point or 2 or 3 under my daily point I am going to try to pack some bigger lunches since I eat the majority of my points at supper and later. I might try to eat more at lunch and during the day and less at supper. Does this sound like it might work or am I insane?? :)

Tuesday is my birthday (which ALWAYS means birthday cake!!) The big 2-4! I haven't really made too many plans yet but of course you can't go by a birthday without birthday cake!! ( I know I'm having cake this weekend but it's not MY birthday cake) Birthday cake that has your name spelled on it should be 0 points!!! They should make that a WW policy.

I am actually pretty pumped though about tonight's workout. I am going to get in a good 45 mins of cardio (I'm going to give the running another try and see how my knee feels) My plan is to do 30 mins of walking/running intervals and 15 mins of the stepper. Then it's grocery night in the Enman house so that's another 1.5 hours of walking (even though it's not really exercise, I'm probably burning more at the market than at home on the couch right?)

1.5 cups All Bran - 3
1/4 c. skim milk - 0.5
1 grannysmith apple - 1
1 multivitamin
(I have been taking a multivitamin every morning for about 7 or 8 months now but never think to mention it)

Ranch Chicken Wrap (whole wheat wrap with chicken, lettuce, small amount of cheese and light ranch dressing, bacon bits) - 8
1/2 can diet Pepsi
Total: 12.5

Honey Mustard Chicken (1 small breast) - 4
Brown Rice made with Chicken broth instead of water (this was awesome!! I cooked it last night but when we got home from work, I threw it in the frying pan with broccoli, spinach, onions, garlic powder and a little soy sauce and it was soooo good!!) - 5

Total: 21.5
Points Target: 22
Flex points remaining: 35

Tomorrow I am going away for work (which means eating out for lunch) so wish me luck....I am going in KNOWING that I am going to make healthy choices so I feel good about it. Wish me luck on my weigh in!!!!! Good luck to all you Friday weighers!!!!

    And yes, definitely up your points a bit - you don't want your body going into starvation mode.

    Go you!!!
