Binges

Well, I'm doing ok on my tracking this week. I have honestly written down everything. Including my small binge last night. I had felt like crap all day (even took some time off work because I felt so bad). Needless to say, I was not cooking. So we ended up doing Sonic for supper.


Did you know that a Sonic corn dog is 7 points? I had two of those. And tater tots (not so bad at 4 points). And a 20 oz. Pepsi. And a pack of snack cakes that were 6 points. I ended up using 24 of my flex points. On the second day of the week. But, I will make it through. I don't guarantee that I will stay within my flex points this week. But I will continue to write it down so that I can know what I have done. This is the trick to Weight Watchers success.

On another note, while I have kept track of my activity, I have not used the points towards food. Of course, all I have done this week is walking around campus as well. While the points add up this way since I did about 3 miles Wednesday, I'm going to wait a week or two before I even consider claiming activity points for getting to and from work. I know that focusing on my food is important, as well as eventually finding my way into the gym at a time I can actually get an elliptical machine to exercise on...

As you know, binges are my downfall. You seem to have found an effective way of dealing with them. They are slippery things and you gotta get a hold of them however you can do it.

Not being able to get the elliptical is what made me start doing classes. It's so awkward to stand around waiting for the machine, or worse when someone's waiting for you!

Sonic is evil, fyi. And Whataburger, too. Do y'all have those? Anyway, it's my total downfall.

Luckily we don't have a Whataburger in town. The closest one is over an hour away. I like the place, but there are better places to eat if I'm down that way. :)
