Decided to stick with it!

Wednesday, March 12, 2014

I blogged yesterday about how I'm not "feeling it" and have been eating a lot of crap. I missed my Weight Watcher weigh in last week and have been afraid to get on the scale. After a good day yesterday of tracking and getting in a 40 min. brisk walk with puppy and pushing my great-nephew in his stroller, I decided to get on the scale this morning. Much to my surprise, it showed me down over 2 lbs.!

As I mentioned before, I have been eating a lot of crap, but I have been exercising a lot too. I tried to go back and "track" my crap consumption since last Wednesday and I really didn't go too far over my points. I guessed high on some things (and I'm sure I forgot others), but I still didn't use all of my weekly/activity points for last week.

However, nothing is "official" until my Weight Watchers weigh in tonight. I decided to stick with it and continue to weigh in weekly and go to the meetings (at least until the end of April - I'm paid through then).

I generally only use Weight Watchers online for tracking points and getting some recipe ideas, but they have a new activity plan & challenge that looks pretty good, so I "signed up" for it. It's a 6 week plan and I chose the "Advanced" plan. It starts out with 30 min. cardio activity (3 x a week) and a body sculpting workout (2 X a week). They also have 2 days of "extra" suggestions. So you're really supposed to be "active" all 7 days. Each week the activity increases and they have activity suggestions, etc.

I'm going to set a 6 Week goal instead of just a goal for March (since March is almost half over!). So, I'm going to participate in the 6 Week Activity Plan and my 6 week weight loss goal will be 5 lbs. (on 4/23 weigh in). I'll use tonight's weight as my starting weight.

I'm setting a goal (in my head) of getting back to my goal weight by Mother's Day! It's a little aggressive, especially since there will be some challenges - traveling during Spring Break and Easter party (and peanut butter eggs!), but I'm always the most active in the spring.
