So don’t beat me up when it’s likely going to be different next week!
To stay positive, I was thinking this week I’m going to give myself the opportunity to earn points for doing good things. Kinda like I do with my kids. I guess the points will satisfy my inner child.
So here’s the point system, which is nothing at all like Weight Watchers, or I might’ve stuck with them longer:
1 point earned for any flour-less plant-based (vegan) meals, snacks counting as a group.
1 point earned per salad, smoothie, soup, or whole foods veggie meal that doesn’t have grains or oil.
1 point for staying within my calorie limit for the day.
This amounts to a maximum of 8 points I can earn in a day. My goal is to get as many as I can, but hopefully at least 5 a day.
Sundays don’t count. That’s my free-for-all-and-keep-my-sanity day.
That leaves the question: What do I earn?
I don’t have a clue. Clearly not food. Less than 30, I’m not going to reward at all. Any suggestions for the following ranges are welcome:
30 to 35 points –
36 to 39 points –
40 to 48 points –
Before you say “Better health should be good enough” I want to stop you right there and say that yes, it should, but clearly it isn’t. If it was, I wouldn’t need a little extra incentive now and then.
