Day 2

Today I’ve been pretty sick… sick enough to not even go to the FSU game (which if you read a couple blogs back that’s a pretty big deal.) For a lot of us, the days we are sick, unless it involves the  stomach, it’s really easy to postpone all diets and pig out to feel better. I tried to avoid doing that by pigging out on watermelon and a bowl of Kix. Let’s do this…


I kept it simple since I woke up at noon.

Emerald Trail Mix Berry Blend: 3 points These things are great to buy for snacks or breakfast on the go because they fill you up pretty well.

Banana: 2 points We all know how awesome they are

A Glass of Orange Juice: 2 points


With all good sick days, you have to have chicken noodle soup so I cut up some leftover chicken from last night and put it in some Lipton’s. I also added a little Trappy’s Pepper Sauce to add a little heat.

Leftover Chicken: 5 points

Lipton’s Noodle Soup: 3.5 points

Watermelon: 2 points


Arriba! (Yes I’m that lame.)

Megan once again utilized her awesome WW cookbook and she made tacos with this home made salsa that could have been a tomato-cilantro-onion salad. They were amazing.

3 Tacos: 10 points

Watermelon: 2 points

I’m not counting the brazillion cups of chamomile and water but they are both no points. (Also a ton of Kleenex but that’s gross and I didn’t eat them.)

The Total [Insert Drumroll] Today I used 35.5 points which is 1.5 over (shame shame) but like what I was talking about yesterday, you have 35 flex points and I only used 2.5 of them this week. Legit.

So tomorrow… is Sunday, but you already knew that. We started on a Sunday so tomorrow the flex points reset and we are also WEIGHING IN!!!!! We are going to weigh in the morning and I’ll let you know how I did this week. I think I did pretty well this week so I hope the scale will be gentle. See ya tomorrow.

  1. Congrats Nathan and Megan, you’re doing great! I hope you feel better soon. Your efforts have inspired me to tone up – tomorrow is a jog at Lake Ella!

  2. I only added up 30.5 used? Anyway, good job. The longer you stick with it, the less you have to consciously think about your choices- it becomes second nature.

    I wish I still had even 30 points a day. One more pound and I lose another point, putting me at 25 for my limit. Eek! Losing a point is always hard.

    • I’m terrible at math lol I think I forgot to add something because we have a whiteboard where we keep track of points and that’s what I go off of. Yeah it’s going to suck when I get out of the 30 point range, but it will be worth it. Thanks for reading!!!

      • lol I forget things too sometimes, which is why I wrote them down as soon as I eat something, and if I’m not where I can do that, I make a note in my phone.

        I’m going to add you to my links on my blog so I’ll remember to check back and see how you’re doing. 🙂

  3. Hi Nathan!

    I’m so excited to see that you all are starting out with Weight Watchers, too! I joined online in January of 2009. Year 2 has been really touch and go, but I’m ALMOST down 60 pounds! I have a few different WW cookbooks, if you and Megan want to borrow them. And don’t worry about going over your points for the day… remember, that’s really a minimum. Most of the time I do best if I’m eating 2 or 3 of my flex points each day, too. Hope your weigh-in went well!
