Weighing In on Weighing In: Being Honest

Honestly, I failed this week but it’s been adding up from last week. I had a 2 lb gain this week. I honestly didn’t care about what I was putting in my body. After feeling like I’m not worthy for the past two weeks, I ate like I wasn’t worthy. I enjoyed a cheeseburger with truffle fries, red wine, and tiramisu having at our Anniversary (Celebrating 7 years marriage-not total years together. My husband celebrates both) dinner on Sunday. Let’s see, M&Ms, yogurt pops (those are so bad but I know of lower calorie alternatives), pastrami sandwich (need to find turkey pastrami), cake, and my husband bought me a cupcake last night. Why am I not blaming him? He didn’t make me eat it. I made the choice too. To be even more honest with the meltdown yesterday, I’m surprised I didn’t eat at McDonald’s!

What I have learned is that even though I’m active, Weight Watchers gives daily points AND a weekly budget, I need to NOT eat so much of my weekly budget. During the summer I was banking 2-mile walks and very much more active. With winter and the never-ending snowstorms, I’m lucky to get on the treadmill. I’m glad I have it or there is NO WAY I would be active. So, fewer weekly points (calorie intake) and more activity points. I also need to talk to my family doctor about the implant in my arm as it seems my body seems to want to have its time of the month every two weeks or so. Yup, I’m bloated and my rings are tight on my fingers. To much TMI? Maybe. But like this post title says-Honesty.

What I did enjoy this week that was low in points were my street tacos. What?! Tacos?! You fcking bet your butt! So this is what I used (it literally takes minutes):

Jo’s Street Tacos

White onion chopped (enough to your liking for each taco made)
Frozen seasoned beef (choose your serving size I did 1 ounce per taco)
Cilantro (to your taste)
Thin gluten-free corn tortillas (thin tortillas are less in points)
Taco seasoning (a couple of dashes)

Shake season on beef and warm in the microwave. Serving size is 3OZ I used 2OZ making it only 1 point. Warm tortillas up according to package (about 10 seconds in the microwave). Add beef, onion, and cilantro. Y’all! As a southern girl, this hit my TACO heart spot! I added 1/2 cup of pinto beans and my lunch was ONLY 3 points! This will be my go-to meal. If chicken breast is used that would bring it down to 2 points. I could add guacamole for 3 points which is a healthy fat and I think I’ll do that next time. You can customize how your heart wishes such as corn, jalapenos, red onion, radishes, the list can go on. The fresh vegetables are always zero points

It’s Thursday and I got on the treadmill this morning. I weighed in and was completely honest with myself about my eating and weight gain. I’m ok. I’m not going to let myself brood over it.
