- supper (a very satisfying one of grilled cheese sandwiches - yes, that's plural - and vegetable soup)
- a banana mid-afternoon
- WW Smart Ones microwave mini pizzas for lunch
- (early start - no time for breakfast - I know, I know!)
That can't be right.
And if I add more fruits & veg to reach my required daily number of servings? No matter - they're free, so they don't help me get to my daily target.
A points allocation like this could lead someone to just round out the day with 18 Points+ worth of crap - and I'm pretty sure that's not what the program was designed to do.
I know the answer is to eat more, earlier in the day, but as this program is about fitting healthier eating in with your lifestyle, I will always prefer to trade breakfast for an extra 10 minutes of sleep. I tear out of here in the morning in a blast of mayhem - it's a wonder I have all my clothes on, much less remember to take something to eat in the car for breakfast.
Get better-organized, you say? Get up a bit earlier? Sure. I'll be 42 before long... if I can teach myself not to eat like a 12-year-old left home alone for the weekend, and if I can actually run that 5K in May, maybe I can teach myself to get my act together in the mornings, too. From where I'm sitting right now, it would appear to be the most achievable of the three!
In the meantime, I am going to be very, very interested to see what the scale has to say next Monday.
