January 18th Ramblings

For today's food log, go here.
To see what I had for dinner go here.
Today, I want to talk about exercise. I quit. After the problem with Nathan, I just have not gotten back into the grove. I had set a goal to get up early and exercise and read my scriptures, but I just have been too lazy or something. Today I got up late but I made it a priority to get my exercise and scripture reading done before I got to do anything else. Well, it worked! I got my 15 minute mile done. I really need to start doing another 15 mile at night. That would really help me. Other than that, I feel pretty good about what I have been doing. Tonight we are having tacos. I know with WW that we have an extra 35 flex points to use if we want during the week. I have tried really hard not to use them, but I may have to tonight. My family loves tacos, so we shall see how my points equal out today. I know that I can not starve myself though and I have to eat a good breakfast. Lunch seems easier to do lower points for if I choose. So, we shall see how my day comes. I plan to be gone all day tomorrow, so I probably will not check in. I am getting my new battery tonight so I will be able to weigh in Monday morning and I am so excited to see how I have done!
Hope everyone has a great day!
Update: Well, I just figured out points from my taco dinner. Have you ever tried to read one of those, kind of hard to understand because there is so many ways to cook it. Well, I am using lean ground beef. I figured out two tacos are 7 points and that does not include the light sour cream or low fat cheese I am putting on but I think I will still be doing fine with 10 points or so for dinner. Yeah, I don't have to totally give up tacos!
