The Week of Accountability - Day 4

Whew, we are over the hump folks!  Four days in and I haven't dipped into weekly points.  That feels GREAT!

Wednesdays are a bit more challenging as we always visit my husband's parents' home for dinner. This evening we didn't visit as he is ill, but his mother was kind enough to still prepare our dinner. It's always such a nice treat! However, it isn't always a low fat type of meal. (Delicious, but certainly not low fat). LOL

I did well but I will be going to bed early tonight - I have zero points left and I am sticking with my plan of not dipping into the weekly points.

So, here goes - my menu wasn't as great today as the last few but it's all good!

Yummies for the day
1/4 c Egg Beaters
Bagel Thin
WW Fat Free Cream Cheese
Watermelon, Cantaloupe and Honeydew
Turkey sandwich
Cheese cubes
Pasties (pie crust with beef, pork, potatoes and carrots) with gravy
Broccoli (larger amount, so I ate less of the pasties)
A pizza roll (was a treat for the children but I was tempted)
Small, small, small piece of cake

That's it folks. That filled my daily points. I'm actually glad this happened today (it is actually typical of Wednesday's) as it just shows how high calorie, high fat foods can really add up. The morning and afternoon, while I could have had more veggies, weren't too bad - but my dinner this evening really sealed the deal for the day.

The good news is, Weight Watchers IS flexible and while I wouldn't want this to happen on a daily basis - today will not hurt a thing since I'm still within my daily point target.

I have not had my walk yet today. I plan to get a 1/2 hour in this evening, study and then go to bed early! I may hang a "closed" sign on the kitchen. :)


  1. I typed my whole day in, including my food and exercise and then the website glitched and lost it all when I hit post comment. I am too tired to put it all in again so let's do this today:
    I exercised about 1 hour and I had 1300 calories - including home made pea soup with ham for dinner.
    I hope you had a great day.

  2. I am sorry you did not post yesterday. I thought I would wait to see your post before I wrote but since now we are on a whole new day I am giving you my Thursday:
    Never got to exercise yesterday. Was out in the morning and had work all day. Making it up this morning with a full hour on the treadmill.

    1325 calories yesterday, 135 protein, 125 carbs, 38gm fat, 28 gms fiber
    5 egg whites, 4 slices turkey bacon, 1 slice Rye Bread, split pea soup with ham, apple, 1 tb sf/peanut butter, 8oz ff/sf Greek yogurt, 1/2 c raspberries, 6 oz bugrer 93% lean, zucchini salad, low carb ketchup, grilled onions in EVOO.

    Except for not getting my exercise in, it was a good day. I usually do not exercise 1-2 days a week. This week Thursday will be the day I took off instead of Saturday,

    I hope you are doing well. Keep going no matter what!

  3. Hi Jane,
    Yes, my evening last night turned out to be slightly more hectic than planned and I missed posting. I stayed on target and put the post up this morning.

    Thank you so much for doing this with me! I appreciate it! It sounds like you had a good day yesterday. :)
