I can't believe this is our 4th Weight Watchers Wednesday post. Don't forget to check out Blue-Eyed Bride's WWW post today. She is the fabulous host of the week!
So I don't have news to report this week as far as weight loss goes. I decided not to go have my shot tomorrow due to the fact that it is $20/per shot. Well they want me to have them twice a week (that is on top of the other "fees" I pay them) and I just can't afford to do that really! So I am only going to be getting them every two weeks. And until I get a new scale I won't be weighing at home. My scale SUCKS!!! Something awful. It will tell me one second that I weigh 156 and I will step off and get right back on and it says 154 so I am over that thing. So I won't have weight loss to report until next Thursday! So my WWW posts will have to be about exercise and diet :)
Let's see... this week has been GREAT for workouts and dieting! Monday I went to workout after work as usual. It was good to be back into my Body Pump routine (although for the past two days I have looked pretty dang funny walking). Miss one week of BP (dang travel for work) and you are screwed, you will be sore for several days-and I am FEELIN' it now-I can hardly sit down in my chair at work so I have been getting up and down as little as possible and miiiighty slow! I feel like someone beat my legs with a bat or something! PAIN! Ok, back on track, Monday I also ran 1.5 miles & walked 1 mile and considering I am not a runner I was really proud of that accomplishment. Typically, I am all for the elliptical. Usually running really hurts my ankles, but lately I am trying to mix up my cardio so running it is! And spinning will be back in full effect very soon. I like to do that in the winter rather than summer. Tuesday morning at 5:00 AM, I was up and at it... off to the gym with hubs for some cardio and abs. And since I have dinner with the in-laws tonight, I got up this morning at 4:50 AM (Grrrrr) and went to Body Pump. Now this is the first time I have done BP this early in the morning. Usually it's after work at 5:30. Well, after squats were over, I was pumped and ready to go. But squats almost killed this girl this morning! WOW! I think the sore-ness might have had something to do with it, but also, I wasn't even really awake yet! Afterwards I ran a little! Tomorrow morning and Friday morning I will be rising early (5 AM-booooo) to burn my calories for the day. Tues and Thurs Hubs and I like to go early because we like to have those two nights to come home from work and do what we want (which is usually laundry, dog baths, early dinner & TV)!! And Friday we are going on a date night to the movies to see Saw V! I loooove horror movies (the Saw series is one of my faves of all time) so I am pumped!
I am pretty disappointed I have to wait until next Thursday to weigh in, but hopefully it will be a good loss. I am getting closer to my goal and I can def see the weight coming off. I am, however, beginning to wonder what it will be like when I come off of the meds. Can I keep it off? Will I have the self control to keep it up? My plan wasn't to start a "diet" it was to make a lifestyle change and to never go back. I thought it was going to be hard to do, and it has been, but it's been 24 days since I started this journey and I can honestly say, I think it's set in. I finally, for once, have the right mind set. And I know that I can never go back to what I was doing, which was binge eating all the wrong things. During the 24 days, I have "cheated" once. It was for Hubs' birthday. I really didn't have much of a choice where we went, so I got pasta alfredo, but I didn't allow myself to eat it all. And I was ok with that. It was good, but I didn't stuff myself. We got dessert (which I don't LOVE) and I had 3 small bites for celebration purposes :) We have to go out to eat tonight, and I will be ordering a grilled chicken breast. It's what I have to order anywhere we go. Sometimes I think, UGH, I just want to eat and then I remember how good it feels to make progress and lose and that feeling goes away. It bothers me less and less to see other people eat and enjoy their food. I now (well I try my best) to look at food as nutrition and not as something to do that's fun and enjoyable. Because if we are being honest, food is my drug... I freakin' love it and I looooooooove to eat! And I will always be an "addict" so I can't fall off the wagon :)
Happy Weight Watchers Wednesday girls! I hope you all have had a successful week! Don't you just wish we could all go to the gym together. It would make it so much more fun (for me anyway) :)
I leave you with this...
I found these and I am IN LOVE with them. They are perfect for breakfast or a snack or for your sweet fix! They are REALLY good! (no lie!)
