Day 120 (Tuesday 3/3)

I woke up in a panic this morning. I couldn't remember what time my dentist appointment was. Was it 7:30....8:00.....8:30....for the life of me I couldn't remember and didn't want to get there too early and then have to sit and wait (dentist is 25 minutes away). With a wet head at 7am I called and they said I was at 8am. Relief! Didn't have to go with a wet head!!

I got to eat breakfast with DH this morning. It was so nice!!! I had oatmeal and an english muffin w/cream cheese for 4 points. And had to jet off to the dentist.
But man, the dentist is no fun! I had two fillings. Ouch! Better to get them taken care of though I guess. I have to go back a few more times for more fillings. I didn't have ANY cavities until I was 19 and now I'm getting TONS. No fair!

I didn't get to work till about 10am and just felt really sluggish. It almost felt like the whole left side of my face was numb...like I had a droopey eye. And then the numbness started to ware off and boy is that side of my mouth SORE!!

Around noon I decided to have my regular morning snack of a ww yogurt with 1/4c grape nuts for 2 points...but I let the grape nuts sit in the yogurt longer than normal so they could soft to not bother my teeth.
I always have a light lunch on Tuesdays since I weigh in at 5pm. I had a sliced cucumber with ff ranch, ham & turkey slices, and 1 slice of ff cheese for 3 points.

After I entered my lunch in my food diary spreadsheet I looked over my weight tracking spreadsheet and added up how much I lost each month, just 'cause I was curious:

November: -12.5 lbs
December: -11 lbs
January: -9.5 lbs
February: -5 lbs

What a dramatic change I had in February!! Now I know I can contribute that to not working out as much (ie sleeping in) and not eating on plan on a LOT of days in February. Makes me sad to see that measly little 5lbs!

But I've come to the conclusion I'm not going to let it get me down. I am going to push forward and try to have an AWESOME month of March!!

Speaking of March...here's a recap of February goals!

February Goals

1. Try 2 new WW friendly recipes - DONE!! I tried chicken teriyaki & sweet potato fries
2. Eat less in the evenings - I think this is going to be a constant goal for me...but I did ok in Feb.
3. Workout 6days/week - total I worked out 16/28 days in February - NEED to do better in March!
4. 161lbs by 2/28/09 - didn't hit this goal...missed by 3lbs.

And here are my March goals:

1. No Cool Whip for Lent
2. Eat smart/sensible while on vacation 3/18-3/25
3. Workout 6 days/week
4. 158 lbs by 3/31/09

WI tonight was pretty much expected....gain of .2 lbs. Not too bad though for all that salt I ate over the past two days!! The meeting was great though and got me totally pumped for the week. We even got a free sample of a mint cookie crisp mini bar for 1 point.

When I got home I heated up some leftover chili from Saturday along with a few saltine crackers for 9 points.

My sweet tooth got the best of me while watching the BL. So I had 100 cal pack of oreo snack cakes for 2 points. Speaking of BL I was pretty po'ed that it was to be continued. I hate that! But was happy to see a part 2 of "after the final rose" is on! :)

WATER = 130 oz
EXERCISE = 47 min cross ramp

Yay for free samples!

I don't watch The Bachelor, but I heard the finale was pretty crazy!

Sharon said...

Oh wow, totally love it!!!

Melissa said...

I couldn't believe BL was to be continued either. I was like "that totally STINKS!!"

Kelly said...

Great weight loss in those previous months! I'm jealous. :)

Where do you find those individual packs of dressing that you get for your cucumbers? I have been looking for some but can't find them.

Love your blog. Don't fret over that small gain. I'm sure you'll have a big lose next week. :)

You've done awesome with your weight loss over the past few months! Congrats! Keep up the awesome work!

Kari said...

Yeah the dentist is no fun that is for sure. So your number in February wasn't as big as the numbers in November or December or even January for that matter but the fact is that you are still working towards a healthier lifestyle and that shows even with a 5lb loss.
That ww crispy mint thing wouldn't stand a chance against me. lol. yum yum

Hey - I saw your question on my blog. Right now I'm using designer whey protein powder. It has 100 cals and 18 grams of protein per scoop... I think 2 WW points. http://www.designerwhey.com/

I have also used BSN Dessert protein powders before. They taste really good and come in some interesting flavors, but are a little higher in calories. http://store.bsnonline.net/detail/leandessertprotein.html

Not everyone likes protein powders, but I love them. I don't eat a lot of meat, and they make it so easy for me to get enough protein.
