Ahhhh, I didn't have a good night last night. Let me set the scene for you guys.

Yesterday morning I woke up feeling about the worst I've felt since I've been fighting this cold, had a crappy day at work, which lead to me even feeling worse. Plus on top of that, I was feeling like crazy, like stomach growling hungry.

So I go home and I have my normal snack. Then I have yogurt with cereal. Then I have some carrots. The I got into the Peanut Butter and Homemade Honey Wheat Bread I made. I put the bread in the freezer finally. Then I started on the graham crackers, which luckily, after 3, I stopped. Then I got back on track, right then.

Mind you, I used a substantial amount of Flex Points on my little escapade, but I did track it, or at least tried. I mean how does one estimate the amount of Peanut Butter they consumed when they are eating out of the jar? But I still have a few Flex left for the week, so at least I didn't use them all?

I finished up the night by eating a small portion of dinner.

On a high note? I feel much much better today, perhaps the "feed a cold, starve a fever" thing has some truth to it?

Back on track today, I just had to confess....I feel better now.

The plan for the rest of the week, get to the gym an extra time (which will be hard, I know), don't eat any activity points, nor what flex I have left.

So I'm back to work now that I've confessed to not being such a good WW.

I'm sure we've both fallen off the wagon and done A LOT worse!
Don't sweat it (or do sweat it and get in some extra gym time!)

You're doing exactly what you should...use flex points and journal everything you eat. I'm glad you're feeling better!

that's what the flex points are for. good for you for tracking.

Hey, if you tracked it and they're in your flex point allowance, you're still 100% on plan. Good for you!

Seriously everyone is right. Even though you felt like you were in out of control binge mode, you weren't because you kept track (at least mentally and then in your journal) of all you ate. And everyone is right. That is what flex is for. I sometimes get that feeling like I am STARVING and I eat big. If I have made good choices, I usually feel just fine and don't see a difference on the scale.

Maybe your body just needed FOOD to get better. Healing itself is extra work for your body remember.

And I can tell you what out of control eating looks like. I have done enough of that lately to recognize it even at this distance!

You seriously rock as a WW girl!!!

Good on you for pointing it out!! By doing that you've pulled yourself back on the wagon. Feels much better getting it off your chest doesn't it?
