Down then Up, Up then Down

17 Apr

Man does my weight fluctuate. πŸ˜› We all know that our weight can and does fluctuate daily – hell sometimes hourly *rolls eyes* but ya know, the way the number moves around on the scale each week can be depressing, disheartening…just downright aaarrrggghhhhhh! Yeah I know, not a descriptive word but a descriptive sound and I feel that should count! lol.

Yesterday, Saturday, my official weigh in day, I was up exactly 1 pound, sigh. I s’pose I should have expected that cause of my two huge cheat days at the beginning of that week and the random flex points I used during the week but it still sucks to see the number go up.

A happy thought tho is even with the 1 pound gain I am still over 30 pounds total weight loss, wOOt! Which means I am still allowed to buy new pants. πŸ˜€

My plan was to go pants shopping today (Sunday) but I got a shift at work that took up my whole day so no shopping for me. I am a tad disappointed but I’d rather make money then have an entire day off just so I can make an hour long shopping trip lol. I figure I’ll go tomorrow or Tuesday after work so no biggy. πŸ™‚

Even though Sunday is not my weigh in day I stepped on the stupid scale cause I wanted to see if it was better or worse then Saturday…well, it was better. πŸ™‚ Yah! I went down not only that 1 pound I gained but also a little bit more – seriously, only a little bit, like 0.2 pound, lol, barely enough to even count but ya know what? I am so counting it! πŸ˜›

Means I defiinitely get to buy pants! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ teehee

My food this weekend has been…weird. Saturday I woke up and was nowhere near hungry, which is odd cause normally by the time I am up and showered on a Saturday I am starved, but ah well not this weekend. shrug. I made myself eat cause I was going out to work and was worried I’d get hungry part way through my shift – my tummy lasted the shift at work even though it went 1 hr 45 mins longer then booked, I wasn’t really sure if this was a good thing or not cause by the time I got home it was around 12:30 am and I’d only eaten 12.75 points…and that’s all I ate cause I went directly to bed.

Because of my being so under yesterday I gave myself a bit of a treat today – well 2 treats actually lol πŸ™‚ As a result I can’t actually calculate my points for the day cause the dinner I bought didn’t have the nutritional info on the packaging, oops, I thought it did but when I looked closer after I got home it was just random stuff printed on the label – there isn’t even a full list of ingredients! shocking!

Today I ate:

1/2 cup Maple Baked Beans = 2 points

1 scrambled egg = 2 points

2 pcs bodywise toast = 1 point

1/2 tbls light peanut butter = 1 point

4 perogies = 4 points

1 tbls light sour cream = 0 points

2 yorkshire puddings = 2 points

ginger beef with veggie fried rice = ??

1 boston cream donut = 5 points

I feel some of my food needs explanation, lol.

Yes, I had perogies with my breakfast, I was looking for potatoes to make into hash browns when I realized I didn’t have any so I opened my freezer to see what I could find and saw the perogies, they were my last 4 and seemed a great idea. I mean, who says certain foods should only be eaten at certain times? Why can’t perogies be eaten for breakfast? They were a totally awesome addition to my breakfast and I am pretty sure I will do that again. πŸ™‚

The donut was only eaten cause I still had a winning cup left over from the Roll Up the Rim to Win contest held by Tim Horton’s and I was worried if I didn’t cash it in they wouldn’t honour it. I don’t know that this is a valid fear, I have no idea how long you can take in winning cups after the contest closes but hey, better safe then sorry. And yes, I am aware it’s only a winning donut not like I was missing out on a huge prize or anything but I bought that tea and got a winning cup and no way am I wasting that! Besides, who doesn’t like a donut? I wanted the chocolate donut covered in toasted coconut (omg, that donut is like heaven in your mouth!) but the location I went to doesn’t carry that donut so I got the boston cream. Probably for the best since I don’t know the points for the coconut donut and if I’d gotten it with my luck it would have been way higher then the 5 for the boston cream but still, sigh, it would have been nice to have it.

The yorkshire puddings, I made them as part of the dinner for the kids I was taking care of (my weekend job is being an on call nanny) and there were enough that I could have some if I wanted…I wanted! They were a home made batter not the kind I make that comes from a package, lol. They were yum, but a tad salty, which is odd since I don’t equate yorkshire puddings with salt but ah well, guess it’s one of those things everyone makes a bit different. Even with the salt they were delish and totally worth the 2 points I used to eat them.

Oh, and the ginger beef with rice, I was going to eat salad for dinner – I have a yum one in the fridge, but the house I was at is crazy cold and by the time I got out of there all I wanted was something hot! A salad just wouldn’t of cut it – hey, there is a reason people eat more hot meals during winter. lol. When I was grocery shopping after the nannying shift was over I went to the section that has pre-made meals, I know I shouldn’t have, almost none of the food there is healthy but it was getting late and I am lazy. lol. It was tasty, Mmm! That is the food that didn’t have nutritional info tho which means I won’t be getting it again cause if I can’t calculate the points then I don’t eat it (usually) – sometime I really hate that rule of mine but hey, if it helps me lose weight then I guess it’s a good rule. πŸ™‚

So that’s my weekend – my weight went down last week, then was up Saturday, then down Sunday…wonder what it’ll be next week?
