My Personal Points Target for Weight Watchers is 22, exactly the same as before they introduced the idea of the Personal Points Target. I can stay within that range and feel satisfied if I plan very carefully and eat good food. I can also earn extra Points with exercise or dip into the 35 extra Weekly Allowance Points we all get.
Just like when I was a kid, I rarely get to the end of the week without spending my entire Allowance. And that's even with exercising almost every day and using those Points too. Today I did not journal or plan very well, and at the end of the day I figured out that I ate 18 Points over my target today, and I spent the last of my Allowance yesterday. Oops.
All I can really do is try to make tomorrow and Sunday as clean as possible and keep on going. I can't do anything to "fix" a bad day. I did take a half-hour walk today, but that's already figured into my total.
According to FitDay, here's the breakdown of my day:
Total Calories: 2248
Fiber: 42 grams
This stuff never gets easy for me. It's easier some days, but never easy. Today, a day that included pizza and pop (soda to the non-Toledoans), is not a model Weight Watchers day. I think after my last post, some people might get the mistaken idea that I have this all figured out, or that I think I do, but really, I'm still learning and getting through each day the best I can.
