Well, Warren is finally getting into the swing of things down here. We had a three night spree of sleeping thru, coupled with lots of ninety minute naps scattered throughout the day. It was nice! He's got a cold now, so I'm hoping that's the only reason he was up at four this morning. Needless to say, I'm a completely transformed woman, as I'm sure you can imagine. And this all happened just in time to pack up the van and start our three day trip to CT. That should do wonders for his routine, don't you think? Ugh. But, I came here to rejoice about these victories, not to complain about things that haven't even happened yet.
Oh, you're wondering how Weight Watchers is going? Well, despite working out Monday thru Friday for the last four weeks (I seriously don't have anything better to do. It's not like I'm some sorority girl who's obsessed with the stairmaster or something.) I have gained at my last two meetings. If I gain again, that will mean that I won't be in the I-Lost-Twenty-Pounds-Club anymore! I'll just be DEVASTATED!
Oh, you're wondering why I'm gaining all this weight back? Well, I'll level with ya. I have NO SELF CONTROL. Nada, zilch, zip. It's pathetic. Ask Nick, he'll verify. I once bought a box of cookies because they were better than free with coupons. I ate them all THAT NIGHT! I reasoned that if I hurried up and got them out of the house, I wouldn't have to face that temptation anymore. WHAT?!?! Does that even make sense?
Well, my mom is trying to spoil her grandchildren, so there are a lot of sweets around. For instance, I ate two bags of Famous Amos cookies last night. And half a sheet of brownies that she made for her Sunday school. And last night she and Ava made a yellow cake and when I was up at four with Warren I ate about a third of it. With frosting. It's disgusting, I'm like an addict or something. I'm not even hungry!
I haven't tracked a point since I got here, which I know is the problem, but I just don't feel like it! So, in an effort to give myself some much needed accountability, I'm bringing ya'll into my battle! I'm not gonna go into the nitty gritty, but I'm gonna tally up my points right here for all the world to see. Well, for the two of you who read this to see. I get twenty four points a day, with thirty five extra to splurge, and you can earn extra points for working out. I can't tally them up for today because I have no idea what all I've eaten. So keep me accountable guys! Brandi, this means you, since you know how the program works!
Sorry to those of you who were hoping I'd talk about the kids. I'm pretending to not have kids at the moment. Good thing they have such nice grandparents :)
Update: I just keyed it all in while the kids are rotting their brains in front of the TV. I've eaten 37 points today, probably more but that's all I can remember. It was that friggin cake! And I only earned three activity points because I got irritated while I was lifting because these girls were getting too close. I mean, seriously? Step back a few feet, gimme some space already! So I'm ten in the hole and it's my first day. Sigh. Maybe I should finish off that cake so I don't have to face it tomorrow...
