Wasted Days

I've been in a rut yesterday and today, not only with my eating habits, but with life. We call this being blah - kind of ho-hum, not really caring about what's going on around you. Yesterday didn't start out well with my diet, my office has a monthly birthday luncheon and yesterday was the day. I was to bring peach cobbler so at 6:00am yesterday I was making peach cobbler. In order to get myself, my peach cobbler and my daily "snack basket" ready and at work by 8:00am there was no time for breakfast. I grabbed a 2 point package of Quaker Oatmeal-chocolate snacks and ate those on the way to work. I did pretty good until about 10:30 at which point I had to have another snack, seeing as lunch wasn't until about 12:15 or 12:30. Got a snack. Fast forward to lunch, OMG at the food. We had hamburgers and hot dogs, chips, potato salad, pasta salad, deviled eggs, chocolate cake, peach cobbler, blackberry pies, key lime pie, blueberry cobbler, a huge fruit tray with cream cheese/marshmallow dip and carmel drizzled brownies. SOOOO, this is where my diet started heading DOWN hill. I had a hamburger, a tiny spoonful of potato salad, lots of fruit, a little taste of my peach cobbler (I had to know what I was feeding everyone else) and diet coke. Not bad... It could have been MUCH worse. Then for dinner I opted for Jay to make waffles, my thought was hey I've blown the diet for today might as have a dinner that I want. And did I mention the we had bacon. OOPS!

This morning didn't start off much better. I had 2 pieces of cheese toast and a pack of grits for breakfast. Not too bad, but lunch again was my demise. LEFTOVERS at the office. I only had a hamburger and grapes today. I've had a couple of 2 point snacks thru-out the day, but I've not done too bad. We had chicken tenders and chips and salsa for dinner. Again not bad, but it could have been much better. I've not been doing meal planning this week, I'm flying by the seat of my pants, not good. Anyhoo, I think the lack of meal planning and then feeling like I've failed is what has gotten my down and blah, as we say. Wish me luck for a better day tomorrow - its back on track - no excuses.

Don't get discouraged! We had 2 Publix cakes last week for birthday parties, VBS week with lots of goodies, Father's Day today. The good thing about Weight Watchers is that you can jump right back on it!
