Weekly Health Update no. 7


This week I had hoped to work out at least three times, but it never happened. I'd usually feel really bad about this, however, I have excellent news to report in my let's skip to that!


On Monday I began Weight Watchers and I am happy to report that I absolutely positively LOVE it! :))) Monday was a bit rough and I ate more than I was allowed, but Tuesday through today I have stayed within range and actually have extra weekly points to burn! WOOP WOOP! The reason I slacked off of exercising was to give myself time to adjust to my new eating plan. Since I have always struggled with the nutritional part of this journey I felt that it was much more important to focus on this. I use my WW calculator to figure out points, and then log these points directly into the calculator. It is SO much easier to do this than to calorie count, and I am very excited that this is working for me! :)

Next Week's Motivating Picture

Lauren Conrad - A long, lean body without looking rail thin. Gorgeous! 


I have said this many times before, but I seriously hate the scale. If I see that I've lost weight, I get overly confident and start thinking "Hey! I lost 5 lbs, I can afford to eat this pint of ice cream" or the opposite happens and I feel helpless and defeated. On Monday I weighed myself to see my starting point and I am happy to report that I have lost 1 lb. I know it's not amazing, but it's a start, and I AM SO HAPPY! :)


Overall it has been a great week! I did not feel deprived of any food and have made great choices during my first week on WW. While I would have liked to exercise as well, I am happy with the progress I have made. Next week I'm hoping to keep up on WW and squeeze in a few work-outs.
To those on their own journey -- how is it going??

Great job on your nutrition!!! Start with some fun, more laid-back workouts next week to ease yourself back should make it easier to not burn out. :) The only way I keep my own workouts going is to remind myself of the wonderful feeling I have after I do, and to remind myself, also, of how grouchy I can get when I don't :) lol! That really helps me!

Nutrition is so tough. That's definitely what I struggle with. I just don't like all that healthy stuff...tastes like cardboard.
