Good, Bad, Complaint

So as I dumped on the internet the other day, I sort of feel like a failure – which I think is wrong – but am still working on getting my arms around it.  I joined Weight Watchers and for some reason I feel like a failure.  I think it’s a good idea, but I dunno – just cant figure it all out.  On the Biggest Loser – there was a lot of talk about the mental side of weight loss.  It’s rough – that’s all I will say.  Somebody said it was 80% diet, 20% exercise.  I’m willing to go on the record as saying it’s 45% diet, 45% mental, 10% exercise – but who really knows.

So on my first day of weight watchers, I completely blew it.  I didn’t plan for my long ride very well, ended up eating crap snacks then had a dinner that I guestimated at 25 points – I think it was about double that – UGH!  I am not 100% sure, but it was high.  Thankfully I have a ton of the spare points.  I also have activity points, so I am still on program.

Today – much better.  I got some fruit (apples) and ate them.  I enjoyed them a lot.  I was hungry a lot, but had a satisfying dinner.  Some chicken and peas & corn.  I am under budget today – so all is leveling out.

I did send an email to Smyrna Bikes – they replied with a polite apology.  I’d buy a tube there or something, but thankfully, I don’t need much from bike shops.

Tomorrow – biking and KICKBALL!
