Keeping promises

Day Two of my detox plan didn't go quite as well as Day One. I treated myself to my favorite lunch — a slice of pizza and caesar side salad from Picazzo's (11 Points!) — then had the munchies at work. I ended up devouring three Mexican Wedding Cake cookies (so good!) throughout the night.

The good news is, I tracked it all. The bad news? 12 FPs later ... Oh well. Since I'm on Day Two of the WW week, I have them to spare.

I also kept my other promise to myself for the day: To get in some kind of activity. Not only did I do a couple of extra laps around Target and park farther from the door at all my holiday shopping stops, but I also hopped on the exercise bike for 10 minutes. I pedaled for 5 minutes going forward and 5 going backward. That has to count for something, even if I did earn just 1 AP!

I'm going to become quite the hot tea afficionado. After Tina over at Carrots N Cake raved about Celestial Seasonings Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride tea, I decided to try to find some. I did, at my friendly neighborhood health food store. Not only did they have that flavor (which according to Tina is almost impossible to find), they also had three other holiday flavors, conveniently packaged in an endcap display.

I got myself two boxes: Sugar Cookie Sleigh Ride and Candy Cane Lane. I had some of the Sugar Cookie flavor after dinner as a dessert substitute. It tasted delicious ... but a substitute for dessert it was not. It didn't keep me from eating cookies back at the office.

I'm sipping a mug of Candy Cane Lane right now as I write this post, in lieu of having an after-work snack. Now that's a habit I think I can get behind.

With that in mind, here are my vows for Wednesday:

  • Track faithfully for the day.
  • Get some kind of activity (preferably more than 20 minutes).
  • No after-work snack. Drink some tea instead.
I'll check back in with my progress.
