By Friday I was a bit frazzled and didn't go to the gym several days in a row due to too much going on....appts, etc.
So Saturday started out with Weight Watchers at 6:30 a.m. and almost lost 10 lb in 3 weeks...(should make it by next Saturday...only need to lose .2 of a lb)...I was afraid of weighing in cause I went over 3 points on Friday and didn't feel very "skinny" but had lost 3 lb in the past week.
The new WW points are very generous and since I love veggies and fruit I have felt quite full most of the time. I have not found any foods I love which are not allowed (within reason).... I even had one green coconut on Friday with my dinner.
I am so glad I joined WW. And actually think I made friends with one of the other members and gave her a ride home (she had taken the bus there in the rain).
After WW I went grocery shopping and picked up some specials before the prices change tomorrow.
After that hubby and I went to the farmer's market where I picked out 3 more hanging plants for the front of our home which I am so happy with and think they make the front of the house look a lot better (also the big pine tree is gone in the front since Friday and felt we needed something in the empty space. After the farmer's market we went to the gym (I swam for my usual half hour and whirlpooled), then off to Target to pick 2 Rxs and picked up a couple of items at the thrift store. Tried to talk hubby into a haircut but we both decided against it and I actually thought at that point I needed a nap, but instead did some computer work looking at Angie's list for home repairs. Then cooked a delicious dinner with rice noodles, squid, mushrooms and other veggies. I even had homemade frozen yogurt flavored with sugar free ginger syrup that I made about lunch time.
I am finally running out of steam and am sparking before have a long shower, wrapping my legs (for the edema treatment which is actually showing some results...my ankles are softening up and don't seem so hard with the swelling....) and after that I plan to hop into bed (gingerly with 1.5 lbs of leg wrappings, put on the CPAP machine and watch t.v. or listen to musci until I konk out..about 8:30 or 9:00.
Tomorrow I have visions of trimming back my rose bushes and sorting through a bunch of "important papers" that have accumulated by my Lazy Boy chair in the living room. I have several projects related to insurance and health care reimbursement (I find this stuff quite tedious and procrastinate but know it has to be done "sooner or later.")
