I did not sign back up for weight watchers however, I bought a app last year called itrack bites. It is basically weight watchers online for a one time app fee which is great, because you get the tools and don't have to pay a reoccurring monthly fee for it. That was always my problem with weight watchers online. I felt like I should be able to pay a one time fee for the online tools since I wasn't going to meetings or needing new supplies like tracking journals. I have been feeling really good this week so far. We had our team meeting for Pampered Chef on Tuesday night and it was our recipe tasting night for all of our new products so I definitely ate a lot more than I normally would have, but I just estimated around 25 points and that was that.
On the flip side, today I was feeling tired, and emotionally stressed. I tried hard, put up a valiant effort; even tried to do other activities to distract myself but in the end it was all for naught. Popcorn and cookie dough.... why is it always popcorn and cookie dough? I binged today on popcorn and cookie dough. Every time I go off the wall it is always with those two foods. Emotional eating is something I am still having a very hard time with. Being home with the kids with no one but myself to try and talk me out of it doesn't work very well. Alas, tomorrow is a new day and I really want to try to get into a groove again where I am eating health, and feeling well. I love how I feel when I am in the groove, but it seems hard to get there and easy to slip up.
Thinking about my two kryptonite foods got me thinking about all the things I don't binge on anymore. I remember in the beginning anything would do. I could go off the wall eating goldfish, cheese-its, teddy grahams, really anything that was a snack food. So I guess that progress has been made in that really, I only have two trigger foods now a days. I think maybe just not keeping cookie dough pre made in the house could really help solve the cookie dough binge. Of course there is nothing stopping me from whipping up a batch, except maybe my own laziness.
In other news, I was at Wal-Mart today to buy one thing: brown sugar and of course I remembered I needed band aids and Chloe needed a new sippy cup. On the way to the band aids what did we pass? The Halloween isle. Lily has been obsessed with Snow White lately and has already said she wants to be Snow White for Halloween. Looking through the costumes they had three Snow White costumes and one her size, so I figured I had better get it now and that way she can wear it more. It was $30 which is officially her most expensive dress.

Anyway, I get to go to Zumba class tomorrow and I am super excited about that. Hoping to get a good streak going now. I'm weighing in on Tuesday and I want to have a decent weigh in, a true reflection of my weight, not an inflated number because I ate a ton of food the day before, so I am going to get focused and remember my goals and that eating crap makes me feel like crap.
