Just an update...

Thursday, October 07, 2010

I have been keeping myself STUPID busy these past few days because I feel these next few weeks it is imperative to do the best I can to reach my goal at Weight Watchers.

As of Wednesday morning, I have 5.8 pounds before I hit goal...believe me, I am seriously psyched about this!

I have been so focused on my nutrition and fitness that I am just happy and so proud of myself! I just wish I hadn't spent the month of September focusing so much on fitness that I kind of let the nutrition aspect fall to the wayside.

On Wednesday I did great food-wise, ended with 19 points (I am supposed to have 22). I had less yesterday because today is apparently a new tradition my mom is trying out and I wanted to be prepared by having a less-calorie day the day before. She is having "baked potato" day with ALL of the toppings you can think of. Chili, cheese, sour cream, butter, freshly fried bacon that is crumbled...yeah. I have a plan in place, though. I have had 11 points so far today with foods that would really fill me up (veggies and fruits along with cottage cheese and ham and stuff). I am going to have one potato, and I will have portioned out toppings. I will have my Weight Watchers book with me so I know exactly how many points this is costing me so I will NOT go over 11 points. I do have 4 activity points racked up from going to the gym this morning, so if I am still hungry when I get home, I can have an apple or some such thing.

I have written out my checklist of what I need to have set out tomorrow night so I will be prepared on Saturday morning. I will have spaghetti for dinner as my "carbohydrate loading." I am not worried since it wouldn't really be out of the norm from what dinner is usually like. I will make sure to take many, many pictures for you all! Expect a novel on Saturday ;o}

Of course, I just had to get TOM yesterday, but hopefully the worst of it will be over by Saturday morning (sorry if that is TMI for the men!). I just hate cramps. Then again...running seems to make the cramping go away. Hmm...maybe I'm onto something for the future!

Well, that's about it...just wanted everyone to know I am still alive, just keeping myself very busy with the baby, the house, and just staying away from food I shouldn't be eating!

Love you all emoticon

    Darlin, if you don't like Tom why don't you just ask him to go away? You shouldn't keep a guy in your life if he's just a hassle to you. No need to get cramped up from him...

    Great to plan ahead, that should help keep you on target despite the temptation. :)

Remember to drink lots of water before you go, so you have that full feeling while all the food is available. :)

    Bake potatoes can make great meals! Good idea to bring your WW book with you! And good luck this weekend!
