Climbing out of the hole I'm in...

I did not get back on track Monday, and yesterday could have been better. I almost wanted to skip my WW meeting, but didn't. I also planned to use a No Weigh pass, but didn't. I figured that I should step on the scale and face the music. It wasn't that bad considering the poor choices I have made over the past several days. I bought a 3-month journal, and committed to getting back on plan. This morning I got up early and packed a healthy lunch. I had some leftover Whitt's Barbecue from last night, so I made a wrap with Flatout bread, lots of spinach, 1 wedge of Laughing Cow cheese, and about 3 oz. of BBQ. It looked yummy, and I can't wait to have it for lunch. I also have a sweet potato, and I had oatmeal for breakfast. I WILL STAY ON PLAN THIS WEEK. I CAN DO IT.

I have journaled everything so far, and am hoping my new food journal will motivate me to get back to journaling. When I first got back on plan last year, I journaled every day for over 70 days. My goals is to journal every day for the next 3 months to fill up this journal. Even if I get off track, I will journal because I know it helps me. I am also going to make a conscious effort to check off all the little boxes for the healthy guidelines. Even the milk and oil and multivitamin. Yes, it's back to basics for me.

***for those of you who have a Whitt's Barbecue in their area - they not only have Nutrition information on their website, but they have also calculated Weight Watcher's points! I thought that was great! And I wrote them an email to let them know how much I appreciated it. And it's not as bad as I thought - 3 ounces of pork barbecue is 5 points (62/4/0 for 1 oz).
