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!
