I got my WW P+ calculator today in the mail, and I honesty was not expecting it to be so small. The thing is just plain little. I haven’t read the instructions yet, but I was able to figure out how to enter my data to find my P+ allowance each day, and to find food values. I doubt I will be using it for actual tracking, as I like my excel sheet just fine for that.
I was pretty good on food today, though I did go 2 P+ into flex. But considering most days this week I haven’t even used all of my dailies, I’m not concerned about it. Unless I go on some crazy binge in the next two days I’m fine. I am a little annoyed that the scale hasn’t really moved at all this week, and I’m not sure why. Maybe because its nearing that time of the month now? We’ll see what happens the next few days. Hopefully it will go down for Sunday’s weigh in.
I had to make a quick trip to the grocery store this afternoon to pick up some vegetables. I realized that the only veggies I had in the house that both Mattie & I will eat were a head of lettuce, and a can of peas and carrots that are going in the shepherd’s pie tomorrow night. We also have a half bag of corn in the freezer, but Mattie’s not a corn fan. I ended up picking up a cucumber, some tomatoes, a couple of fresh beets (which we ate tonight) and a small eggplant.

After this weekend’s celebrating (which I still do not regret at all & loved every minute of it), I had to get back on track today. I burned through half of my weeklies yesterday with two big servings of lasagna at dinner, and a few beers. Today’s plan was to get as close to being right on target as possible, without going into what’s left of my weeklies. I didn’t make my BMI under 30 goal today, but there’s still a chance I can make it before the month is out if I stay on track for the next few days. 8)
Now I thought I was setting myself up for failure on that today because when I woke up, I had a thing of yogurt, and then half of the leftover lasagna for breakfast. I was worried that in an hour or two, I’d be hungry again, would eat something, and screw up the day. But after eating the lasagna, I didn’t feel hungry at all until dinner time, which was right about the time I realized I forgot to buy stuff for tonight’s dinner when I went shopping. I could either go back to the store or find something else to make, and since I had a big can of peas (I never have veggies left on Mondays) I had a vegetable, we had chicken, and I fixed some rice to go with it. It was all good, and I ate every bite, and amazingly I wasn’t hungry for more afterwards. =]
Now, today was my actual birthday. We celebrated over the weekend, but today was the day. The dogs did not bother me one time during the morning when I was asleep, though instead of that giving me lots of peace to sleep until whenever, it made me suspicious about what they might have been doing instead of harassing me.
