Bad News Wednesday

I took today and Thursday off of work, so I was able to sleep in this morning and it was SO nice!

I stepped on the scale this morning and weighed 211, which is a .4 gain for the week. I’ll take it and move on. Next week will be better. I will make it better. Total lost is 77 lbs. even.

For breakfast, I had 2 slices of light wheat toast topped with peanut butter and a sliced banana along with 1 cup of 1% milk for 8 points.

Hubby found out that he is going to have to go away for work again for about a month. Neither of us wanted to hear that news. I’m not looking forward to it. It’s lonely and all of my family is 300+ miles away. This just kind of threw me into a funk I had a hard time climbing out of all day.

I spent the morning reading for school- what else is new?

For lunch, I had 2 wraps made of: small mission carb balance tortillas, 2 Schwan’s teriyaki chicken wings, 1 slice of swiss cheese and avocado for 8 points. I also had squash for 0 points.

For dessert, I had FF/SF chocolate pudding for 2 points. I almost forgot to take a picture!

Hubby gave me one of his Valentine’s day chocolates- a dark chocolate Godiva truffle for 2 points.

After my homework was done, I got around to cleaning the house. A clean house does more than make the place look good- it makes me feel more organized and put together myself!

Once hubby was done with his electrical work, we went for a walk. It was another nice day, about 50 degrees. We walked for 31 minutes, 1.62 miles and I burned 165 calories.

For an early supper, I had 1 piece of leftover Pizza Hut thin and crispy ham and pineapple along with a salad made of: lettuce, tomato, mushroom, avocado, 2% cheese, cashews and light ranch for 9 points total. I also had a glass of iced tea.

For dessert, I was craving a sundae so that’s what I had: a sliced banana, 1 serving vanilla ice cream, chocolate and caramel syrup and walnuts for 7 points. I used 2 weekly points for this and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

I can feel my mood being affected by “TOM", which is really just a change in the amount of hormones I’m getting from my BC pill. But it makes everything seem worse than it is. It makes me feel sad, depressed, hopeless and helpless. I need to snap out of it. Even the short walk this afternoon left me feeling exhausted and with aching joints- which isn’t normal for a walk, especially that short of a walk!

Today was just full of bad news. A bad weigh in. Hubby has to leave for work. TOM issues. I can’t feel sorry for myself long though because I know that all things considered, I have a beautiful life with a wonderful husband and I couldn’t ask for more. Things can always be A LOT worse. Sometimes in life you just have to roll with the punches. And at the end of the day, this “bad news” is nothing at all!

I hope that you’ve had a fantastic Wednesday!


  1. You rock and you are doing awesome because you always learn and become a better YOU. Much strength as you have a great rest of the week!!!

  2. :( Just keep truckin' right along. Like you said, in the long run, this will be nothing more than a blip on the radar. I sure hope you get to feeling more like yourself soon! xoxo

  3. What is it that your hubby does that will take him away for a month?

    Life sure does have its ups and downs.

  4. It's ok to be down, a month is a long time! Maybe you guys can skype or visit on weekends. I tried that banana ice cream tonight and it was awesome! Such a great idea, thanks!

  5. Just keep moving. I love Schwans. My favorite is the Spicy Chicken Breasts. I use them in salads, wraps or just sliced with some black beans for a great meal.
