Well, we had snow and ice yesterday. Sure, it looked gorgeous as it fell and left a lovely wintry blanket in my yard. Unfortunately, our roads were horrible and that meant, NO Weight Watcher meeting. I was really ready for it too. I have counted my points, kept my journal of everything I eat and drink AND I've been working out hard on my treadmill. I even amped up my workout and did this crazy ass CALORIE workout. Yikes, I had NO idea there would be sprints involved! The first time caught me off guard and I almost went flying off the treadmill. Once I figured out every 3 or 4 minutes I had to sprint I was good to go. Needless to say, by the end of my workout, I was GLOWING !( I don't sweat, I glow )
Soooo, no weigh in last night, I'll have to wait till this next week and see my progress. My scale at home tells me since my wedding, I've dropped 16lbs, but the scale at WW is different. They are 3 lbs heavier than mine and I had already lost some weight on my own. Even still, without the weigh in, I feel good. Just knowing I'm moving every day now, working out, knowing that I'm being accountable for all that I eat and drink...those are BIG changes. It's just a start on my new lifestyle change.
Funny, how I was terrified of having the office parties and the first one was a breeze. The second one was postponed till today and I'm not nervous like I was. Knowing that if I plan ahead of time what to eat gives me confidence. I also did NOT make a second trip to the food, nor will I today. I will fill up on meats, veggies and a BITE of something naughty. I'm not going to deprive myself, I mean this IS the holidays, right? My director makes the best corn pudding thing and honestly, I could swim in a vat of the stuff, its' really THAT good. So, I'll treat myself to a bite of that and fruit for desert instead of all the goodies up there. I made Bread Pudding with Foster's Sauce last night and didn't even try any!!
The weekend is here, and how will I "Treat Myself" to having lost this much so far? To a hayride and Christmas light show with my family tonight...I will NOT treat myself with food, as I have in the past. That is how I gained HALF of my weight back, by rewarding myself with food. I have to REthink how I celebrate things. I want to celebrate by feeling great about myself in VEGAS this coming summer. I want to celebrate my weight loss by looking good at my daughter's wedding. I want to celebrate my new healthier lifestyle, by hiking in Canada with my buddy Tina. This is how I will reward myself, these sound wayyyy better than a damn bag of chips!
For now, one bite at a time, one decision at a time...
