Weight Watchers Wednesday (3)

Let's get the report out of the way first. Thankfully, the lack of focus on tracking didn't hurt me too badly on the scale last week. I posted a loss of 1.4 pounds. Therefore, I have a total weight loss now of 6.4 pounds. So that's the good news.

The bad news is, I haven't had as good a week with tracking again. And this week, I don't have all the extra exercise to balance it out. Therefore, I'm a little anxious about the weigh-in tomorrow. But, I need to the accountability, so I'll be there...part of me is really hoping more for a no-change than a gain, but it is what it is, I guess.

Sarah had volleyball matches last Thursday, so no workout there. I did make it to run over my lunch break on Friday, but then I slacked off all weekend. Monday, I made it to crossfit, so that is good. But then Tuesday, I settled only for 30+ minutes on the elliptical at the Y. As for today, I am going to try and get to Crossfit again, or at least a run over lunch. Maybe both if I am brave enough. 

The focus of the week was slowing down. Well, that's the focus this whole month. I can't say I'm doing really well with this. It's hard when it seems I grab so many of my meals on the run. But I plan to have a more focused effort this coming week, especially with Thanksgiving.

A challenge will be going to the movies this weekend. I love movie theater popcorn. I know it's really bad for you, but I really love it. I am not going to promise that I won't get some...but maybe I'll stick to the small bag and try to go really SLOW with it. 

Another challenge is that I am going out with friends on Saturday night to celebrate the fact that I turned 40 this year. Just dinner and drinks out with a few ladies. I want to try and focus mostly on conversation and time with them and not so much on the food. We'll see if I can do that.

My goals for the coming week:
1) Track everything
2) 5 servings of vegetables daily
3) slow down!
4) four days of exercise at least

Hope you have a great week!!



  1. We all have bad weeks! And come on... it's your 40th birthday celebration- don't stress too much! And how often do you have movie theater popcorn? Have fun this weekend!

    Uh oh.. am I being one of those people they talk about in WW meetings that hinder success? :-)

  2. OK, so when I successfully did WW, here's how I "cheated":
    1) I never subtracted my exercise points from my daily points
    2) I would choose 2 times a week to splurge and not track my points.

    So, my exercise points would go towards one splurge, and my extra weekly points would go towards the other splurge. Otherwise I kept within my points for the day, exercised as normal, and it all worked out!

    Good for you!! (Not that I think you need to lose any weight!)
