No Flex Points For Me Today, phew

13 Apr

I feel like ever since the weekend I have been using flex points like crazy. I knew I’d use a lot last weekend but I didn’t think I’d continue the trend during the week but I dunno, I am way more relaxed this week about food and more inclined to say fuck-it and eat something I know I shouldn’t for no real reason…I mean, sure if I was craving, or especially hungry or exercising like crazy then hey, sure, eat some chocolate, but it’s none of those things, I am just eating. shrug.

But not today! 😀 Today, even with eating more during the day then normal and getting a late dinner I managed to somehow only eat my points for the day, yah!

Today I ate:

1 pear = 1 point

1 apple = 1 point

1/2 cup light cottage cheese = 2 points

1 piece toast = 1 point

8 pcs Philly Roll (sushi) = 5.36 points

1 vanilla Girl Guide cookie = 1.5 points

5 perogies = 5 points

mixed cooked veggies = 0 points

1 tbls light sour cream = 0 points

1 small slush = 1 point

2 pieces bodywise toast = 1 point

1/2 tbls light peanut butter = 1 point

Total points eaten = 19.86…so really, 20 points lol

Why do I have such a weird total you ask? Because I was bored and got way in to figuring out my sushi roll points. lol. For philly rolls it is 4 points for 6 pieces, my sushi had 8 pieces and you can bet your fine blog reading ass I ate them all! Yum! So, 4 points divided by 6 rolls is 0.67, 0.67 multiplied by 8 is 5.36…hence, 5.36 points for my sushi. 😀 I really hope I did that right, math isn’t really my thing…

It is now 9:16pm and I am fairly hungry, which sucks. But really, it’s my own fault, I let my tummy eat a little extra monday and tuesday and it ate way extra sat and sun so now it thinks it should be getting more food then it is supposed to get, sigh.

My stomach and my eating plan often times remind me of dog training. Every now and then you put the dog through a slightly stricter routine, this way it remembers who is “in charge” and is grateful when the more strict time is over and it gets to be a bit more relaxed about things (ex, normally the dog is allowed on the porch when you are sitting drinking a beer but for a while you make it stay in the yard – it wants to be on the porch and when you finally allow it on the porch again it recognizes that as a treat and acts accordingly). Well, my stomach is like that, I put it through stricter times so when I eat something special it recognizes it as special but sometimes I forget to stop with the special food/quantities and go overboard, making retraining harder. *rolls eyes* My own fault. Means the next couple days have the potential to suck a big hairy toe cause I’ll feel hungry a lot but by the weekend I should be back to normal and it won’t be a big deal again…now I really want the weekend to get here! lol. 🙂
