Back to counting points

1st day back to counting WW points; first work-day using TwitPics; first day of classes at UT!

I thought I'd packed everything I was going to eat for the day this morning (21 pts worth, which is my daily allowance). But I was hungry all day, and still hungry and headachy when I got home, so I had 2 tempeh tacos (corn tortillas, 1/2 slice of havarti cheese, fried tempeh, cabbage, romaine lettuce and Wizard's hot sauce - 5.5 pts.) that Ryan had made for dinner.

Total: 26.5 points

I did pretty well with my GHGs too - no time for exercise, but everything else was good.

I'm going to try to stick with a better diet, taking a multi and taking my exercise and sleep seriously because I'm honestly starting to think something's the matter with me - I'm soooo exhausted all the time! I used to have no trouble getting up early and starting the day, and if I had a project to work on I could go - full of energy - for hours and hours. Now it seems like it's a struggle just to get through the day - and, I don't know if this makes sense, but it's usually that I'm more tired than sleepy - almost like an overtired feeling.
So - fingers crossed I'll feel better just improving my health habits. My mom wonders if I have SAD, but I don't think so... I will look into how much vitamin D I'm getting though, because I don't spend much time in the sun at all.

I'm off to get a bit of work done and then I'm crashing! It's another 4:45 alarm clock morning tomorrow :( Booooo!

Counting points is such a pain in the neck, but it really does help with staying in control.

Glad to see you're back on track! =)

Hey, congrats on your loss! I know, it is frustrating wondering if that big glass of water added half a pound of weight. Or, if you're wearing different shoes, etc. That's what I love about the private naked weigh-in!
