I had a really good weekend. Notice that I didn't say I had a really good OP weekend, because I totally didn't. But the only good thing about Monday's is that they feel like fresh starts, so I'm going to refocus again (again). Obviously what I'm doing isn't working for me (motivationally speaking) so I think that I need a new program. It'll still be WW, and for now it'll still be flex, but I'm hammering out some rules for this week.
I'm going to try to focus on eating several smaller meals. I know this is a duh thing, but I haven't really done this and I want to try it.
I'm force feeding myself water like it's nobody's business. I realize that it's possible to drink too much water, but it's really not possible for me to. I do good to get in 6 servings, but I'm shooting for like 12 8 oz servings. Big difference, and water helps in ways that I don't even have to waste our time listing because we all know them.
I've read somewhere about someone setting up their WW day from 5pm to 5pm, vs just from when you wake till when you sleep. This makes you watch your points at night and encourages more points spending during the day. That would keep me from saving points for snacking all night, and I personally think that it's best to eat more while you're up and about and not when you're just sitting on your bum or sleeping. (although the hub and I have gone round and round about this)
I'm doing some major coke drinking cutting out. I drink no telling how many diet cokes, and since there's this theory that aspartame causes sugar cravings I'm giving it a shot. Besides, that means that I'll drink more water. And it's a no brainer that water is better than diet coke. I've picked a crappy day to start, though, 'cause I didn't sleep well last night and I could totally throw back some Diet SunDrop. (my pity for those of you who don't know what it is - it's like liquid crack sent from heaven) The lack of sleep is also my excuse if this blog is boring and rambly. (I don't want the cracks that all of my blogs are like that!) :o)
And I'm gonna make myself do some sort of activity. Despite my best intentions I still hate exercise like cats hate water, but I'm going to do SOMETHING on a regular basis. (even if it is 30 minutes on the elliptical from hell)
So that's what I'm thinking I'm going to do. And oh yeah, no WP's during the week. I have a HARD TIME on the weekends because I'm such a social butterfly and everyone wants some face time with Mandy (not really) and all I seem to want is some face time with chocolate cake. So I might as well save those points for that time, and maybe, just maybe, I won't use them. (ha!)
I hope everyone had a loverly weekend and I hope ya'll have a great OP day!
PS: Thanks for the comments, you guys know they keep me going. And, Randi, you really really shouldn't feel bad about kicking by butt because I was totally crusin for a bruisin! ;o)
