Back to Reality

What a great weekend I had in LA (recap coming soon!), but now it’s back to reality. After looking at pictures of myself from this weekend, I think I have gotten the kick in the pants that I need to get back on track with eating and exercise. I have less than 2 months until our family trip to Florida and I don’t want to feel the same way about those pictures! (Although this is one of my favorites from the weekend…)


Soooo….I think I am going to start counting Weight Watchers points again. I gave up my membership, but after being on the plan for three years, I have enough knowledge and resources to do this well. I also need to make exercise a priority. Lately I have been running a little bit “when I have time”. Now, I need to make time! I have also redefined my goals and “rewards” for my weight loss milestones, but I am going to keep those to myself for now. I have written them down in the back of the notebook that I am jotting down my points in, so they are “set in stone”. Instead of “I can do this” I think I need to tell myself “I WILL DO THIS!”

Today’s eats (with WW points)

Breakfast: Pomegranate Chobani with 1/2 cup Pom arils (4)


Snack: Handful of baby carrots (0)


Lunch: Arnold Thin with Morningstar Veggie Burger and salsa (3)

Orange Bell Pepper (0)

Honeycrisp Apple (1)


Trader Joe’s “This Fig Walks into a Bar” (2)


Snack: Banana Tootsie Pop (1)


Dinner: I think we are having homemade chicken nuggets with roasted potatoes….Probably a Fuji apple as well.

As for exercise….I went out at lunch and walked 1.68 miles and jogged for .5 mile as well. It’s a gorgeous day here in Michigan (61 and partly sunny!) not your typical November weather so I had to take advantage of it since it will be dark by the time I get home!

On another note, I am participating in Jen’s Motivational Matchup. I have been assigned to Beth V. and I can’t wait to get to know her!

I'm Becci, a twenty something from a small farming community in Michigan. I grew up on a farm and still live on one...I can't imagine it any other way! Although, I do love to travel and see the amazing places the world has to offer! I have always struggled with my weight and living a healthy lifestyle, but that's about to change! This is my journey to eating healthy, traveling, and hopefully accomplishing my goal of running a marathon all while enjoying the country life!

Upcoming Races
