I don't know why, but I haven't been in much of a "blogging" mood the last couple days, hence my disappearance. Usually when people disappear it's because they've fallen off the wagon or something similar, but fear not, I'm still on plan, totally.
Of course the scale is up a little since it's that time, and the scale is always up, so I'm not really going to sweat it much. This weigh in tomorrow doesn't really count in my eyes, because what I gain is just water weight, not a true gain.
I have eaten a few of my flexies this week, I've been hungry, so I ate them, thats what they are there for right?
I've noticed something as of lately, and I don't know why I just noticed it, because it's been going on for sometime now. I think Weight Watchers has made me very anal retentive. I know this sounds funny, but it's true!
I'm so particular now about when I eat. It's like on the dot with times, and I try to schedule myself around my eating, or make sure that I have food with me when that time comes. My body is programmed, it's hungry at these times, so I must eat. I was also getting really out of control with cutting up and weighing my fruit. Like I would eat exactly 6 ounces of Apple, because that was one point. Luckily, in order to keep sanity, I decided that I would just count fruit as 1 point. If I eat an Apple it's a point, regardless if it's 3 ounces or 7 ounces. No one got fat eating an extra ounce of fruit.
But I've noticed not even just with food, I'm just very systematic about the way I do things now. When I get dinner ready at night, I know what time I have to start everything so dinner is ready about 715 when my roommate gets home from school. I know which things I have to start at which times.
I plan out our meals 6 weeks in advance, and have one large shopping trip which I get everything canned or that can be frozen, and then I have fresh lists for each week.....yes I'm a freak. But you know, with a little bit of organizing, I have healthy meals planned all the time.
Of course there are many other things which leads me to believe Weight Watchers had brought out the touch of obsessive compulsive that I might have always had (I've always been a little crazy about organizing). Does anyone else notice anything like that?
On another note my garden is producing like crazy, I picked 12 cucumbers on Monday, and I've eaten a bunch of them...so yummy! I'm waiting for my tomatoes and peppers to really let go. I'm sure they will after we get some of the rain that seems to be eluding us.
Anwyays, I hope everyone is having a splendid and healthy day, weigh in tomorrow!
