Week 3 didn't turn out very well. I certainly made some measuring mistakes. I ended up having quite a few points left over, but I ate every single one of my exercise ones and all of my daily ones.
My number one mistake was eating late. At least 3 nights we had late dinners ( around 9:30) and that never sits well with me. Even though I stayed within my points target eating late in general is still bad.
I had a major sweet tooth. Like major. I didn't go crazy but I definitely had a weight watchers ice cream every single night. Again, it was within my points but I'm sure I could of had better self control
And my third mistake was measuring. I never measured any meats or exact amounts of pasta and I think that's a biggy. I went out yesterday and bought a food scale and plan to measure everything this week, including all oil, butter, etc.
Overall I gained half a lb. I didn't like it, and felt like crying but it could have been worse. I'm trying to change my mistakes and move forward. I had my last day of personal training :( booo! on Sunday so now it's just me, myself and I in the gym. I started insanity ( another post about that soon!) and plan to take 2 zumba classes, 2 lifting classes and 4 or 5 days of cardio.
So we'll leave it at that. I'm planning to measure everything this week. Eat all my daily points and only my exercise points and leave my flex/weekly points alone. No more late night dinners, and a lot less sweets!
