Wisdom Tooth Gone But Still Causing Havoc!

Yes, I broke down. But I needed something soft and substantial to eat after that damn tooth extraction! Image courtesy of rakratchada torsap and freedigitalphotos.net.

My sleep pattern is completely messed up. It all started with the 8 hour power nap Thursday afternoon.  On Friday I ended up going to bed 5 hours ago.

Couple my poor sleep pattern with eating only soup for the last 48  hours and you end up doing something incredibly stupid – A 3:00 a.m. IHOP run

Did I track it?  Yes. Pancakes, 2/3 glass of OJ and 3 oz of syrup equals 32.5 points and 182g carbs.  Yikes!  Clearly over my 25g of carbs/day.  The plus side? I still had my 49 weekly allowance points, so I’m still within Weight Watchers good graces.

Why did I go? Thanks to the tooth extraction on Thursday, I’ve been on a liquid diet up until late Friday. I decided I needed something a little more substantial but soft. 

Pancakes fit the bill.

I didn’t completely fall off the wagon.  I’m still within my daily and weekly points on Weight Watchers. However, since I’m trying to go low carb, this was a complete screw up. But in reality, once that tooth came out, my 25g carb limit was shot until Sunday anyway.

So no beating myself up. I ate it, tracked it, and accepted it. Now it’s time to move on.
