Last night, I worked two WW meetings and got home about 8:15. When working these meetings in the past, I've always come home and eaten the leftovers from whatever I made before leaving. Last night, I cooked a pizza before leaving and didn't expect any to be left when I got home. I was right. They are great pizzas and I would know since I helped make over 2500 last Saturday!
When I got home, I had a cup of yogurt and some popcorn. That was my supper. I ended up with lots of points left for the day (12 points under). I have never left points on my plate before. I always feel that if I get the points, I gotta eat the points. I did get all my good healthy guidelines in as I feasted on veggies and fruit for breakfast and lunch and added some to my yogurt in the evening. Added oil to the popcorn and that's usually the other tough one for me to get in.
WW is stressing in their journals this year to track your hunger. This has gotten me to realize on the normal days that I usually eat out of habit. If it's about noon, I eat lunch. If it's about 3:00, I have a snack. If it's about 5:00, it's suppertime. I am starting to realize that I eat out of habit, not hunger.
Today, I will once again try to focus on my hunger and not worry about the points so much. But I still hate to leave points on my plate!
