Pie crust is gooooood

Have you ever bought the pre-made pie crusts from Safeway or Freddies or wherever? They are SO tasty, especially if they’re made in a pie. But no, I didn’t make a pie. I just ate the crust. I didn’t eat all of it… but I ate a fair amount. I had like, 3 servings of dough (3/8 of the pie). One serving is 2 or 3 points. Oops. It was total stress snacking. I’m watching Jason’s dog over the weekend while he and his parents are fishing up in Astoria, and Kenz has just been an absolute terror. He’s running around the house, breaking things, ruining my yard… but I don’t have the heart to tell him that Kenz is a menace sometimes. It’s not as bad as it sounds, and he was actually pretty good for most of the afternoon, until he started to pace and whine and his farts smelled like death. Finally, he started to jump up and down a lot and looked SO uncomfortable, so I let him out and he just took a massive squishy dump on my lawn. Gross. It’s raining too, so I don’t want to pick it up, even though it’ll just get MORE squishy.

So, I used 33.5 points today. My limit is 24, but the pie did it. That was 8 points. If I hadn’t eaten the crust, then I would’ve been under 24. Everything else was okay!! I had Weetabix, tea, cottage cheese, gherkins, pasta salad, cooked salmon, zucchini/squash, and a bit of tartar sauce. Dammit, this was supposed to be a good day. Now I have to go to sleep with pie crust in me. I feel ill 😛

A little overboard?

Jason made a really good pasta thing for dinner tonight. Mushrooms with a bit of bread on them, with garlic, rotini, dandelion greens, spinach, and tomatoes. I loved it!! Then, we had garlic bread and salad. LOTS of salad. But, also, lots of garlic bread. Oops. I had like, 3 pieces. They were small pieces to be sure, but I should have weighed them and counted them properly. It couldn’t have been good for me.

For dessert, Jon made banana shakes. OH and I had an oyester. Cripes. I mean, I only had a cup of shake, and it had non-fat milk. But, obviously I didn’t do so well at dinner. Lunch kind of cost me since I like cheese and lunch meat, despite it being kind of heavy for such a small amount of food.

I spent 29.5 points tonight, but it was probably more than that (i skimped on the points for the bread). More like 32.5. So, I have very little overflow points for the rest of the week. I try not to use those at all, tbh. It wasn’t like I ate half a pizza. And it was small. Oh who am I kidding? Bleh.

Difficult

I think my stress is holding back my weight loss goals. Now, don’t get me wrong. I lost 2 lbs this week, and I’m down to 170 (woo). That’s 11 pounds since I started! But, that wasn’t just because I’ve been eating right and exercising. When I was at home, I rarely ate at all. One day I had cereal and food – another (today), I had one meal at home: a tuna sandwich and some salad. For dinner I fell of the wagon and had Burger King’s Tendercrisp Sandwich and a *gulp* LARGE fry. Goodness. I used close to 36 points today (which should’ve been 24). I was pretty good at home, and mum actually told me that I looked much better than I did at spring break. She was proud of me. And I cared, but not like I thought I would. I thought I looked good. Today is the mark of a new beginning; I’m finally doing this for myself, because I want to look good and I want to be happy – not because of what mum wants me to do. That’s something to be proud of.

Now I just have to pretend I didn’t eat that Tendercrisp sandwich and those fries…

Eating habits

So, I wasn’t hungry today at all. I didn’t eat until 3 pm, when I had an egg white omlette (about 3 eggs worth), with mushrooms and scallions. Then I had a banana and some cherry tomatoes. That was about 3 points. 3 out of 24. You have to eat at least 90% of your points everyday, so I dug out my mac n cheese from last night and ate the rest of it. So, that’s about another 9 points. I still have lots left… but I’m not hungry.

We’ll see what else I eat later 🙂

172…. again

Hey, I didn’t gain. I’m not complaining. I didn’t lose, but oh well. I’m just glad I’m under 180 still. I have this fear that I’m going to wake up one morning to see that all my work has gone to waste.

In other news, I had mac n cheese tonight, but only a cup. I wanted to eat the whole bowl, believe me, but I didn’t. For that, I am proud of myself. I think I need to eat a bit healthier to be honest. I had weetabix for breakfast with skim milk, dried fruit bits, and tea. Oh, and I think an english muffin was involved at some time. For lunch, I had 2 Cha Siu Bao’s, with salad and Light Ranch Dressing (10 pts), and for dinner, I had the mac n cheese with a diet Dr. Pepper. Yeah, that was it. I’m not hungry, and I’m so upset right now I don’t think I could eat anymore.

Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day, but I doubt it.

Another weigh in, and I’m down to 172(.4)

So my scale does things in 10ths, and I feel bad whenever I tell WW that I’m 172, and I’m really 172.4. Oh well, it’s all in the rounding I suppose. Of course, the 4/10 of a lb means nothing, really. I could change that by going pee (true story).

I wanted to rant for a second about certain magazines that will remain anonymous, but claim that cycling does nothing for your body and you should run instead. Ok, do you know what? I rode only 40 mins today, about 11 miles (10.95 to be exact), and i burned a whopping 600 calories. Yeah, suck it. Would I burn that much running? No. Would I hurt my shins doing it at the same time? YES. You people who say cycling is sooooo easy, well you try strapping your feet to your bike and riding up a 30 degree hill without stopping, because you know that if you do, you wont be able to start again. And then after that, ride another 15 miles or so, at a pace of 15-17 mph. Sounds easy, right? NO. Screw you guys for thinking that.

And honestly, look at the likes of Lance Armstrong, Jason Donald, Alessandro Petacchi… they’re all fucking ripped and svelte, all from cycling. So, to all you people who say cycling is a waste of time, stick to running and such… screw you guys. There. I’m finished.

4th Weigh In – No Loss.

Still 174. I didn’t try too hard this week, so it makes sense. I had taco bell once (so shoot me, I caved and was hungry), but had salad and other good things after that. I can’t keep caving, though. So, to make up for it (and my lack of activity – I blame Ragtime and midterms), I’ve been eating chicken breast, asparagus, artichoke, salad, and whole grain types of foods. I also got egg whites for omelettes, and some more Weetabix. I think it has 2 points for two biscuits. I also got fat free mayonnaise, and fat free italian dressing. It’s really tasty 🙂 Hopefully it’ll be better next week.
