Including a trip to Weight Watchers --
What's that you ask?
Who lost 3. 8 lbs this week?
Here are the deets:
- I went over my points on two days - which ended up resulting in an overage of about 16 points for the week. I made up a lot of those points in exercise (I earned 28 APs this past week - both on the treadmill and in the yard), and then ate under points on two days to make up the difference. I know you aren't "supposed" to do that on Weight Watchers, but whatever - it works for me -- life is not always going to be consistent enough to eat the same number of calories on every day. Plus, it's been too friggin' hot to cook, so it worked out well
- I drank 2 glasses of wine last week, and a couple of lite beers on Friday night with friends. Other than that, and one diet coke, it's been all water and a few cups of coffee.
- I earned 28 APs. 'Nuff said there. HOWEVER, it isn't like I was running up hills or tearing up the elliptical - I was just walking on my treadmill.
- I journaled every single point. EVERY.
- I got good sleep all week.
- I made really healthy food choices - ate breakfast at home and brought my lunch every day. I cooked healthy dinners, and made sure to really "heavy up" on fruits and vegetables.
- And the exception? I also ate pizza on Friday night and McDonald's (gasp, gross) on Saturday -- balanced out with plenty of healthy foods for the rest of the week.
I tell you the above to emphasis the fact that on this journey it is all about progress and persistence, not perfection.
Years ago, when I was interviewed for an article in Health Magazine, I talked about being "20% pizza and 80% broccoli" and that has always been my attitude.
Life is supposed to be fun. You can't eat soybeans all the time.
Off and running,
