Well this weekend was pretty fun! There was a pool part Friday night, got highlights on Saturday, and Sunday spent time with the family! It was great. But I realized this morning as I stepped on the scale that I needed a reset. I need a fresh start. So I changed my Weight Watchers WI day and reset my weight history (im only 2.5 weeks in) and am starting fresh. I think this is what I need. I think Monday is a good day because it will help keep me accountable on the weekends knowing weigh in is right around the corner. So we shall see how it works.

So my goals for this week are to track, track, track! Everything! And also to get my fitness in. I want to run 3 miles this week and keep up on my training. I know things work if I work the system. Pure laziness will get me nowhere.

And one major goal for this week ahead to is to lose the “all or nothing” mentality. That is one thing that I know is holding me back. For me there is no in between and that is something I need to work on. For example, If I eat a cookie then I feel that I have completely blown it and need to start over. But that is not how I should think. I need to realize that I can have a cookie and track it and move on with the next meal/snack.

One person on weight watchers told me that if I want to eat a treat ask myself if it is worth the points and see how much activity I would need to do to burn off that treat. Would I need to run 3 miles to burn off a sweet and if so is it worth that extra effort just to wash away the treat. Wouldn’t I want to do the extra effort to get myself a head instead of balancing me out? I think it’s a great concept and one I would like to try.

Im excited and feel confident about my fresh start. I feel like it is something that I need. I am already on the right path to succeed. I have my food tracked, my weight tracked and my measurements taken. I am ready for this and I know I will succeed.

    My official weigh-ins have been Monday mornings for as long as I can remember. Sometimes it sucks (like today, haha!). But, for the reason you mentioned, I think it's a good long-term plan, even though I don't think that was my original intention when I picked that day.
