*All would be considered good that I ate on the ride, had I remembered to enter it when I got home last night from our ride.  But I didn't remember until this morning. AFTER I ATE THE PEANUTS WHEN I WASN'T HUNGRY JUST SO I WOULDN'T HAVE POINTS LEFT YESTERDAY.  So now, because of my stupidity, I went over on my daily points.  My goal this week was to not do that, because I never want to go back over that 200 lbs mark again and I am perilously close to doing that so I wanted to step it up this week.  I have not felt deprived at all so far this week, eating only my daily points.  I was happy that I was managing to only eat my daily points. GAH!  I felt like I was exercising self-control better than ever.

I was so upset when I realized that I made Adam think I had realized something really, really awful.  Of course, to me, this is awful, and to him it's not that big of a deal, or to anyone other than me, but I'm so frustrated! I was so excited to be able to come in right on target on a day that is usually over because of how we structure our rides.  We even changed the structure of our ride yesterday so we could stop in the middle and eat lunch. Frick.

Well, I guess it will just have to be a goal I pursue with a vengeance next week. I CAN DO IT.

How was your Saturday? Did you stay with in your points values or stick to your plan?

First of all, I am so jealous of your pizza and chocolate milk! hahaha

I remember I used to get really anxious when I went over my daily points, but I eventually learned to let it go. I found that it really didn't make that much of a difference to my weekly weight loss. As long as I stayed below using all my weekly points. And I never let myself exchange activity points for food. I feel like that's pushing it sometimes.

Now since I'm doing the meal plan in the "17 day diet" I eat way below my target points. Mostly because I don't have any carbs. But it sucks. I'm really missing the freedom weight watchers gave me. And if I didn't have such a fast approaching deadline (like a wedding and honeymoon) and wouldn't be worrying at all about trying to lose quickly.

I've ordered Jillian Michael's 30 day shred and am going to start that on Sep.1st. Since there are 30 days in September, I think it's fitting :) I'm just sick of running, needed something new.

sorry, rambling....

looking forward to more posts, keep up the great work! Especially those awesome rides. Don't beat yourself up over just a few points!

@Sarah @ ExPat Bride Having pizza so many days in a row was just a fluke, way too carb heavy! And the chocolate milk is a great recovery drink. If you get a chance to, google 'Chocolate Milk Diet.' It was suggested to me when I was struggling to not be ravenous after P90X work outs.

Normally I am not so anxious about going over, but I set a goal to not go over on my daily points this week and I can be kind of OCD about things like that when I have a goal in mind.

Let me know how the Shred is, I've been thinking about trying it after I finally actually finish P90X this winter. I've never managed to finish a round.

Thanks so much for the support, I really, really appreciate it! You keep up the good work too, you are really flying with the 17 day diet!
