Weight lost this week 0.8 lbs
What went well: I got into a better groove about what to eat and stopped mildy panicking each time I had oatmeal. I navigated both a French restaurant and a school BBQ successfully. I didn't feel deprived at all. I'm psyched I've lost nearly 5 lbs, but think I could have lost more if I got in more activity.
What could have gone better: I went over on my extra points by 4. It wasn't 44, but it was over nonetheless. I'm trying to plan better this week so I'll have a bigger stash of them on the weekend. I didn't earn many activity points, (other than 12 on Saturday for a epic long hike in Muir Woods and walk in Sausalito) as our lives have become exponentially more stressful since Lucia started school, and it feels like it's a huge effort to get kids fed and in bed by 8:30 as is. So I definitely could have worked in more activity. The French restaurant meal came with ahem, bearnaise sauce all over my steak and green beans, which costs me 6 (delicious! No doubt!) points but way worse, some pretty awful constipation. Ugh. Damn dairy does it everytime. And Espen wailed and wailed the next day too.
What I hope for this week: More activity, more sleep of course, which means less cravings for sugar and crap to try to cope with the exhaustion. I'm aiming for more protein and more green vegetables too.
