I'm actually feeling better since I started back on Weight Watchers last Wednesday. DH wasn't even mad that I'm paying for it since I explained that even as a Lifetimer, I would still have to pay for the online tools. As I explained in my past blog, I find the P+ system of tracking easy for me. I peeked on the scale this morning and I'm about 2 lbs. down! Official weigh in is Wednesday.
In addition to the hopeful weight loss, I'm actually feeling better. I was experiencing some heartburn, discomfort the past couple of weeks (which I usually don't), but I've been feeling fine the past couple of days. When I eat well and don't give into the crappy snacking, I just feel better.
I felt some hunger pains over the weekend, but I would either just drink some more water or eat a piece of fruit. The family is actually enjoying the healthy dinners and DH is glad he doesn't have to cook or go to the grocery store as much. I actually went twice on Saturday because I was missing some ingredients for my veggie soup (yummy!). I'll have to go again tonight because we ate all the fruit and yogurt.
I did run on Friday. I had all my excuses ready - yucky weather, tired, etc. When I got home from work, DH was ready to go, so we dropped DD#1 off at work and went to the indoor track. DD#2 was sick, so she didn't go with us. She was actually sick the entire weekend. She wasn't running a fever this morning, but we kept her out of school. She'll miss Bball practice tonight, but hopefully be ok to play tomorrow. I think the reason she got sick is because all the "touching" of the basketball, hand slapping, etc. and they don't get a chance to wash their hands between plays! A couple of girls from her team have been sick and who knows about the other teams! The girls hate to miss practice because the "head" coach gets mad, but if they keep spreading the germs, they won't have any players to play!
Anyway, DD#3 and I rode bikes on Saturday. We went to the neighborhood behind us. I usually just cut through there and go to the greenway where it's flat. DD#3 just wanted to ride all the streets in the neighborhood and it was hilly and hard! I was panting and puffing and my knee hurt. When I woke up Sunday, my back was killing me!
DD#1 & 3 were disappointed that they couldn't have anyone over because of DD#2 being sick. I picked up DD#1's boyfriend and took them to the mall (it was their 3 month anniversary). Since my back was still hurting, I just layed around yesterday with sick child!
This week is going to be insane with play dress rehearsal & basketball. I'm determined to get in a couple of runs so I don't loose my momentum and I'm actually looking forward to weigh in on Wednesday!
