Structure is important in my weight loss journey. During the week it’s easy to plan workouts, snacks, and meals around the work day.
In the past I could carry that through to the weekends but haven’t been good at that since rejoining Weight Watchers. I want to eat favorite foods which of course aren’t great choices. I think I’m going to allow it once per day and see if that permission helps.
During the week the food plan went great. I ate more on the weekend and ended up using all my weekly points instead of half as planned.
Since I like a hot breakfast, among my favorites are the Jimmy Dean Delights bowls and sandwiches. This egg, potato and turkey sausage bowl is just 6 points plus. I usually have this 1-2 times every week.
One night I made tuna tacos from a HelloFresh meal box. I had a groupon for six meals and will have more next week to share with you.
This was our second HelloFresh dinner of the week. I knew my husband wouldn’t care for the potato salad recipe so fried the potatoes instead (have to get those healthy oils, right?).
The parmesan-crusted chicken was fabulous!
When I rejoined the online program set my weigh-in day as Mondays and I just left it even though traditionally I’ve been a Saturday morning weigher. With eating out more on the weekends and the salt retention that follows, I’m switching it to Fridays. Today I’ll report yesterday’s weigh in and next week it will be the previous Friday.
This week I lost nothing leaving the total weight loss at:
Monday’s workout was Tabata Temptation. I like tabata style workouts to change it up.
I made it to Kaia Fit Wednesday and Friday to finish out the week.
I have a couple of evening events this week starting tonight and then am traveling Friday and Saturday. My plan is to make the best choices possible given the situation and then track it.
How do you handle meals outside your control whether it be at someone’s home or when traveling?
Pretty much I do the same as you. Try to make the best choices out of my options and then track it. I don’t have much trouble if it is one meal out. It is more when I have to eat multiple meals out and none are great choices. I try to watch my portion sizes as much as possible and not use it as an excuse to just totally go off the rails.
