I survived another busy week! It seems that every time I had a moment to sit down and get on the computer so I can post, read, & comment on every one's blog, then I would remember something I NEEDED to do and then another week passes before I realize I haven't been able to get back on the computer. So, I have exactly 15 minutes to post before I need to run out pick up my son from football practice and then we have another commitment at 7pm. I'm getting tired just typing that!
I have done really well in keeping with my Weight Watchers Program. Last week was my third week and I did better than the previous weeks. What was better? I planned ahead! I planned out my meals for the day which helped me stay on track. It's too overwhelming for me to plan my meals for the week, so I just plan a day ahead of time before I go to bed. Another thing I have accepted is that because my son is an EXTREMELY picky eater and my husband thinks that low cal meals aren't tasty, I cook them separate meals. You learn to pick your battles and I don't feel like fighting with them that they should eat what I cook. I only cook 3 days a week & make sure there's plenty of leftovers and I have my own meals. I freeze what I cook for myself and just pop it in the microwave when it's time for us to eat dinner, that way I don't feel like a short order cook.
I exercised 5 days last week! I notice my endurance level increasing and even though I've only lost 4 pounds in 3 weeks, I can tell my hips are shrinking. I wore a skirt that usually hugs the hips and it was loose. If I keep it up, I may have to buy a new wardrobe!
Was my 3rd week on the program perfect? NO! I had one day where I went over my points. What I learned is that it's okay to go out to eat, but I need to plan ahead where I'm going to eat. Just as I plan out my meals, I need to plan out where we eat and if possible look up the menu online. Lesson learned! Tomorrow is weigh in day, so I'm crossing my fingers I get another weight loss and if not, I'm not going to beat myself up because I lost inches on my hips and that's a huge victory!
