I made an executive decision to change my weigh in day. Some of you even commented about how crazy it was to weigh in on a Monday morning at 5:45am! I knew it was. It was just the day that WW picked for me. But I figured if this program is supposed to work for me in the real world, then I should be able to change my day! And I did. I now weigh in on Friday mornings, still at 5:45am before my shower.
Last Friday, I felt nervous, what if I still had that extra weight I brought home with me from the mountains? I would just be crushed. BUT I didn't! I had lost the added weight plus two more! Whoop! So since the beginning of this journey, I have lost a total of SIX pounds. Not bad in my opinoin. Now I am not feeling different and clothes still fit the exact same way. But it is six pounds.
Today, I find myself feeling a little nervous again. My week has been chaotic. I went to Cincinnati for the weekend and didn't exactly stay on track. I had Monday off for MLK and used some bonus points. I had two hour delays for school on Tuesday and Wednesday and then no school Thursday. That equaled a lot of down time for me to sit and eat. I did pretty good, but I wouldn't say I was perfect at all. When I got on the scale I discovered...I lost another pound! That brings my total weight loss to 7 pounds since January 1st!
I will say I am proud of myself that for a second week in a row I earned activity points. I earned points by going on a hike, walking, and Zumba class. Go me. I am going to stick to earning those bonus points as it made me feel better about myself and of course I know it is the right thing to do. I will be Zumba-ing on most Tuesday and Thursday evenings and possibly Pilates on Monday evenings. I will be happy with myself if I keep to that schedule. I am guilty of getting into my sweats as soon as I get home from work--bad habit.
Well that is the update for now. I am off to Columbus to stay in a hotel with my bff Jamie and act fancy. I really do not think we will act fancy, but I bet we take pictures pretending that we are! :)
