Weight Watchers Wednesday (2)

Holy Moly, I got up this morning and totally forgot it was Wednesday!! This post might not be as detailed as others, but I'll do my best. First of all, my weigh-in on Thursday went very well. I was down 5.0 pounds! I know it was all that good tracking I did the week before, and the good choices. I hadn't delved into my 49 point allowance very much (I think I might have used 5 of them?) and of course, I had come down with Strep over the weekend. BUT! I am going to take my success and run with it.

This week has been a little different. Thursday night, we took the family out for dinner at a Mexican restaurant we enjoy. I didn't go overboard on the food, but goodness...I only had ONE margarita and it was 18 points. Boo!!!

Friday and Saturday were decent. I didn't go over too much on those days. Sunday provided a challenge, however. Unplanned volleyball games came up (Sarah's league tournament started and I hadn't even thought about that!!) and I didn't track starting Sunday. Monday was my birthday and I didn't track that day either, though I didn't really go overboard. Then Tuesday, the pattern continued.

Today is a new day so I intend to track my food today.

The good news is, I got exercise on most days this week. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, I made it to Crossfit. Sunday was a rest day (much needed!) and then Monday I made it to Crossfit and on Tuesday, I got out for a run (in the cold!!!) Today may be a rest day again because we have an appointment this evening for Dani to swim for the coaches to see if she can get back onto a swim team.

So, there it is...Week 2. I'm not sure about the scale this week. I hope it's not up, but I won't be surprised if it's just a little bit up, due to not tracking...I know that's one of the keys to success.

The routine that WW is focusing on for this month is to slow down and this week was to put the fork down between bites and sip water. I focused early on, but towards the end of this week, I lost that focus, so I will try to refocus on that today with my renewed tracking focus.

Have a good week and tune in next week to see how this all panned out. :)

  1. Way to go on your first weigh in! That's awesome!

    I hear you on losing focus. Last week I definitely lost focus and got out of my maintenance range a bit. It's amazing how quick that happens. But then I have to remind myself to settle and get back into it. Way to go on all your workouts! I've never done Crossfit, but I see some of the WOD's and think how hard it looks.

  2. Congrats on the weigh in! Tracking is my hardest part too. Im always so good at it for a while, then I slowly start to just think Im keeping track in my head, which always leads to not tracking at all! Back on the wagon today, getting my notepad out!

  3. Oh I love WW, it's always helped me lose the baby weight. Can't wait to go on it as soon as I push this one out! Keep up the good work, Michelle!!
