Happy Hump Day

Life has been slow around here. I am gearing up for year-end at work and am finally focused again after the summer. School is in full swing now and Mark is finished the classroom work and has over a week to absorb what he's learned to write his exam. I came down with a head/throat cold that's going around. Ugh is all I can say. My energy has been zapped as has my motivation for exercise. I have been swimming, if you can call it that. I am trying to get in some 'good' swimming and not just float around out there. Once Mark is back to work I want to take an aquasize class they offer on Tuesday nights right after the family swim - maybe just a few times to get ideas of things I can do while keeping an eye on the little one - who is becoming quite the fish.

I have 6 weekly points left which usually means that I will likely maintain this week. I'm hopeful that some of this stagnation is simply clothing changes. My home scale is being tempermental and disagreeing with this analysis, so I am going to move him to the top shelf of the linen cabinet as I've promised to do before.

Today's menu:
Breakfast: 4pt smoothie (1 dairy, 1.5 fruit and some fibre)
Morning snack: 1C baby carrots
Lunch: I brought spaghetti squash with bean and tomatoe sauce for 5pts
Afternoon snack: Orange for 1pt
Late afternoon snack: 1/4C Almonds for 4pts
This will leave me 8 pts for supper and snack.

So, the Plan for this past week:
Implement XBX Plan - do Chart 1, Level 1 at least 4x did once - it's pretty easy so dunno
Walk and/or jog at least 30 mins 3x I was ready a few times, but something always came up. Did housework on Satuday, though and went swimming a few times
Attend Dance/Yoga class Did it, but was feeling zapped due to cold
2 fruit pts/day as part of my F&V Yup
8 +cups H2O/day Weekends not so good
Maintain 25-26 pts/day - do not go over 28 pts even on weekends Weekends not so good
Have snacks in morning and afternoon (ForV in am and carb or protein {pretzels, nuts} in pm) not bad most days
Count pts, but stick as close to Core (whole foods) options as possible for main meals I kinda forgot about this one.

I'll try these goals again. Maybe put them on my fridge or calendar to check off each day.

I hope you feel better soon. Being sick just makes everything "off".

Way to go on the goals.......I really have to get my butt in gear on that front - I need to put them on my fridge too!
