Staying on track this weekend...

My number one goal for this weekend is to stay on track. I've done well today, even though I've eaten a lot of points. I've been hungry, but I'm making good choices. I made a heaping bowl of oatmeal this morning, using 1/2 c. oatmeal, and it was too much. I only ate about half of the mixture because I was full. I packed a PB&J and some strawberries and Greek yogurt for lunch. But my co-worker bought me a foot-long Subway, so I ate that instead. Only half, though - I'm saving the other half for dinner. That was around 11 a.m. At 12:30 I ate the strawberries and 1/2 the container of Greek yogurt. It was my first time trying it and I didn't care for it. Instead of eating the whole thing, I just threw the rest away. No need to waste that extra point, right? Just now I ate the PB&J. I still have 11 pts left for dinner, and the sub is only 5 so I should be okay for tonight. I am watching Jess's kids tonight until she gets off from work, so I plan on making something kid-friendly for all 7 of the children, and eating my sub.

Tomorrow I plan on cleaning and unpacking the few boxes I have left in the house. I need to catch up on laundry, and sweep and mop the floors. My garage is almost clean enough for me to unfold the elliptical and start using it, so that is another goal I'd like to reach tomorrow. With all of the busy-work, I will hopefully be able to avoid a lot of snacking and eating. I am still journaling every BLT, so I will continue to do so this weekend. I work on Sunday from 11:30 a.m. - 7 p.m., so I plan on bringing my lunch and snacks to be prepared. The women I work with eat A LOT of junk. They provide drinks for sale in the refrigerator in the stock room, and they don't even have diet soda! Last week when I told them I was on WW, they looked at me funny. Okay, ladies. We work at Lane Bryant, but we don't have eat all day while we're at work, right? Being fat is not a requirement for employment. I love Lane Bryant, and appreciate the stylish fashions they provide for big girls like me. But I don't wanna shop there FOREVER!
