There were 9 of us at the local SparkTeam dinner last eve. It was my first time making the reservations and it worked out fine. I do enjoy getting together with our team, local people trying to improve their lifestyles. I enjoyed some broiled salmon on a delicious salad with a bit of balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
My weight was up a bit at Weight Watchers this morning, more than last month but less than the month before. Perhaps that salmon had more sodium than I figured!? In my head I blamed my outfit and that I didn't get to the restroom right before the weigh in. I started to feel disappointed with my weight, but the person who weighed me helped. She pointed out that I have done very well and told me I look fantastic. So, I've never left WW with a gain feeling as good as I did today.
I know, I know. I shouldn't need someone to tell me I've done well. I know I have. I know weight fluctuates. I know that the scale does not measure my worth. And if I am tracking accurately I should not even need the scale to let me know how I am doing weight-wise.
So, how did I do in September? Excellent on exercise with half marathon training right on schedule. Water = good. Sleep = pretty good. I ate lots of good food, and tracked most of it, but sometimes ate more after I was done tracking. That is my area for improvement in October. I'm going for 100% tracking. I'm not really trying to lose weight in October, just looking for optimal nutrition for half marathon training. But I really, really do not want to gain any weight this month. Perhaps I could just fluctuate down this month??! LOL
