Last night was BAD. Real bad. I did so well at first. Ate an entire carton of grape tomatoes. Made my 2 pt pizza and had 1 beer. And I had 4 pts left to have two more beers. Then the "mind set" took over. Eat, eat, eat. It started out as a chip here, some dip there. Then came the oreos. They were my downfall. I ate so many that I felt sick. I was in "horde" mode. Ya know, like I'll NEVER have a chance to eat Oreos again, so I had better eat up. Ridiculous!

I don't know what got into me. I can think of a stressful discussion Ed and I had that afternoon, but really that's just another excuse. Truth is, I caved. This must be why people have such a hard time with the last 10 lbs. I feel good, I feel thin, so I allow myself more indulgences. I think that's it. Good news is that I've done this for so long that my body reacted to the overeating by making me sick. My body has been in "clean out" mode. (TMI, I know) So, maybe in some sick way, that's a blessing. lol

This morning I got my butt out of bed and went to the gym. Did 3 miles! My friend Monica came with me and we both were so glad we went. It was so cold leaving the house, but there is just nothing like running first thing in the morning. It really sets the mood for my day and makes me feel so good.

It's Monday and a new week for me. Flex renewed and there are no more "events" to plan for, so I'm hanging onto those Flex points like it's my retirement savings. I'm sick of living "paycheck to paycheck" with my Flex pts. lol :)

I'm going to weigh in this evening. I'll report results later. :)

Added my daily tracker:

Nonfat, no whip Mocha= 3 pts
2 clemintines= 1 pt
lite string cheese= 1 pt

1 cup 3 bean chili= 5 pts
1 pc Light Flat Out bread= 0pts

ff yogurt with 1/4 cup Fiber One and some ff cool whip= 2pts
1 cup strawberries= 1 pts
100 snack pack= 2 pts

Subway 6" Turkey Sub with veggies, mustard, lite mayo and vinegar= 6pts
1 package Sour Creme and Onion Baked Lays= 3 pts
WW caramel bar= 1 pt

Run 3 miles= +3 pts

Total= 22 pts

Well, ya did what ya did, and now you have a clean slate. I ate 10 points worth of junk last night too, which was mostly chocolate in one form or another. I am out of weeklies till Thursday. Well, I have 1 left. Woopee! Are "flex" the same as "weekly"? Take care and have a great day. Good job exercising. I am thinking about it, yeah, that does nothing for me, I know. :)
