Much better week!!

I did MUCH better this week (and this weekend) I stayed on points and have lost a total of 5.5 lbs so far!! It's not a lot, but it's better than nothing. I went to the gym 4x...I ran for 30-45 minutes each time, and lifted weights 3x as well. I am feeling so empowered! I wish it was coming off a little faster, but still, I FEEL better!

Week 3--Monday

Okay, bound and determined to be successful....I stuck to my points today! I am also trying not to eat anything after 7 pm because I am not as active and won't burn it off. (One of the suggestions on the Weight Watchers site.) The good news is....even though I ate bad last week, I only gained back .8 of a lb, Which means I still lost 3.2 lbs....not too bad! However, if I am going to lose 20 lbs by August 15, I have to stick to it from here on out.

Not only did I stick to my points, but I went to the gym and did the elliptical for 3o mins, burning 300 calories. Then I did some squats, tricepts, biceps and abs....I am feeling pretty good this week. Wish me luck! :-)

Week 2

Week 2---Not a success. Not only did I hurt my ankle making it difficut to work out, but I have not stuck to my diet AT ALL. I feel pathetic that I have no self control. Only 9 more weeks until my vacation and I still have 20-30 lbs to go! I don't know if that's even possible..feeling a little sad about myself today.

Monday--Continuing the Journey

Well, I am going to try to stick in my points again this week. I did pretty good last week. I used all but 7 of my flex points. I had a HUGE dinner on Sunday that used the majority of them. It was delicious though, and that is the benefit of having those points worked in there! That being said, I am proud of myself. I ALWAYS go crazy on weekends, and I really kept myself in check.

I am stuggling a little bit today. I am home with a sick baby. Poor little man. All I have eaten is a cup of cereal and a banana...oh, and Fiber One bar. I am having trouble keeping myself in check because I am having such a stressful day. Not only is the baby sick, but I am dealing with some financial struggles. I have A TON of student loans and am working on getting those caught up. (They got a bit behind during some medical issues I was having in the past.) On top of that, I applied for a car loan and was given a REDICULOUS interest rate for the loan itself. As a result, my husband nixed the whole purchase. I actually cried like a 2 year not to comfort myself with food. :-( Tough day, overall.

First Weigh In

I lost 3.9 lbs this week!!!! I am so excited. I just have to make sure I don't blow it over the weekend. I am even thinking about going running so that I can have 2 glasses of wine tonight without tapping into my 35 flex points. (Save those for a big dinner on Sunday.) Not that I SHOULDN'T run, but my ankle is a little sore. (I really need to get new sneakers!)

It is so exciting to see all of this work amount to something. I am scared about the weekend though. I tend to splurge a lot (too much) on weekends. I am going to REALLY try not to this time...wish me luck!

Week 2--Day 2

I did pretty good today, but not great. I used EXACTLY my 25 points. I didn't go over points at all (that is the good part), but I didn't work out today either. Plus, I had a fajita for lunch, which equaled a good chunk of my points, so I had a pretty light dinner. So, that was the not great part. Even though the fajita was DELICIOUS, it made me a little hungry the rest of the day because I had to eat so little.

Breakfast was an apple & coffee. Lunch was the delicious fajita. Then dinner was a chicken covered in crushed tomatoes and a half a cup of whole wheat pasta. The other good news is that I did drink a ton of water today!!!

And I didn't skip working out because of laziness, I was car shopping and just finished up about 8 pm. So, I still have to shower and get a bunch of stuff done for tomorrow. Even though I stayed within points, I feel better about my diet when I eat healthier stuff because I can eat more and more often.

Tomorrow is another day and another opportunity for better choices!

Week 2--Day 1

I did really good today! I am proud of myself. I stayed witing points (ate 24 of my 25) and drank a ton of water. (I didn't experiance the hunger I struggled with last week either.) On top of that, I ran 2 miles!!! Feeling off to good start.....a much needed success after my horrible week last week!! :-) Let's hope the next week goes just as well!!
