As you might have noticed, yesterday's weigh-in did not go that well. I'm still struggling to stay in my points range on a daily basis. I think I need to do better planning. My workouts have also been a little different this week. I have a 5K tomorrow so I took it a little easier this week.
I'm going to spend some time this weekend with my old WW materials and plan things out. "Winging it" usually means I'm home from work, tired and hungry , and not in the right frame of mind to choose wisely. Last night I was making a barley risotto recipe, and in the middle of it, threw it all into a storage container and called a friend and suggested we meet for dinner at Panera. It was nice to have dinner with my friend but I was feeling impulsive and added a chocolate chip cookie to my order at the last minute -- 10 points.
My husband is home tonight and we're having the barley risotto tonight with some mussels and a salad. It will probably be a quiet night at home with the race tomorrow morning. The race isn't a big deal, but it's for a good cause. I'm probably running 11 minute miles in training, so I am guessing I'll finish in about 32 minutes. I am going to try to push a little, but it's early in the season and I haven't done a lot of pacework. Mostly I'm doing the race to support my school and have fun.
