I sort of went AWOL this week. I haven't been tracking, and I have been eating junk. (this week's indulgences include greasy Chinese food and expensive cheese)

I feel... disgusting. 

Plans for the near future involve eating pearl barley and a lot of vegetables and drinking a gallon of water.

I'm getting sick of tracking points and thinking about food and diets and stuff. I have been doing well, but I think I need a break from it.

I used to hate coffee. But 6 or 7 years ago, I started to aquire a taste for it. Before WW, I drank it frequently but not necessarily on a daily basis. Since joining WW, I have become a fiend for the stuff. I can not even begin to describe how satisfying it is to me to drink coffee.

I do try to limit my intake on the weekdays to just 2 cups in the morning. And nothing in it but some Splenda. But on the weekends, I will indulge in more. Midday iced coffees. Coffee with half and half. sugar free flavor shot? Sign me up.

I think coffee might be my favorite food.

Oh man...

While I was out running errands today, I stopped in at my corner gas station for a diet soda. (I have been really into Diet Sunkist orange soda lately.) The cashier asked where I've been lately. I told him I'd joined Weight Watchers.

This means that before WW, I shopped at the corner gas station enough for the cashiers to know me and notice when I stop coming in.

I don't smoke and I don't have a car. I was there for sodas and junk food. A lot of sodas and junk food.

For weeks (maybe months) I'd been having these weird cravings for toast. Even before WW, I was not in the habit of keeping bread around the house and I have never been a big toast eater. So I have no idea where this toast craving was coming from. Then I found some awesome reduced-calorie wheat bread. At only 2 points per (2 slice) serving I figured I could happily indulge that toast craving.

The funny part is that I noticed if I had some toast with breakfast or a sandwich for lunch, that I did not  find myself wanting popcorn in the afternoons. I guess my body was trying to tell me it wanted better carbs? Who knows. But if that's the case then what is my body trying to tell me when it's craving soda?
