But the day also could have been much, much worse.
I succumbed to a bad case of the munchies again tonight after dinner (11 Points worth of cookies, Cheez-its and Sun Chips).
However, I also tracked everything I ate. And I got in 40 whole minutes of activity, in the form of a 30-minute walk, 8 minutes on the exercise bike, 1 minute marching in place and 1 minute of modified pushups.
And I did not snack when I got home from work, even though I made the dough for a batch of my Mom’s butter cookies. I was going to bake them, too, until I read the dough has to chill for an hour. (It was already 2:30 when I finished mixing it. I didn’t want to be up at 4 a.m., rolling and cutting out cookies.) I plan to get up at about 8 a.m. and finish them then, instead.
I’m making some to take to the Boyfriend’s when I head down there tomorrow — and also to take to our office Christmas party at noon.
Not sure how I’m going to avoid overeating (and using up the rest of my FPs) at the party. It’s a potluck. Maybe I should just plan to eat lunch before I head over there.
Here are my vows for tomorrow:
- Track everything I eat, even at the party.
- Get in some kind of activity.
- No late-night snacking.
