So I'm a day late, but not a dollar short!
I skipped weighing in yesterday morning as we went for Hibachi on Friday night for my daughter's birthday, and as any good (former) Weight Watcher's participant knows, never weigh in a day or two after Chinese food. Hibachi is not quite the same, but I'm sure the sauces have plenty of sodium, and plenty of sodium = plenty of retained water = higher weight.
Anyway, I weighed in this morning and am happy to report another 1.2 lbs down.
I'm newly inspired in seeing that. I'll be honest, I wasn't sure how the weekend was going to force the scale to treat me. I didn't go overboard, but I did have some cake to celebrate her special day, you know. I just couldn't not.
I mean, I suppose I could have skipped it, but it was my baby's 5th Birthday. She only turns 5 once and all. And I skipped a workout that day, too. Oops. But I did work out this week. I did two C25K (Week 2) workouts outside, one on Monday, and one on Weds. Then I did it on the treadmill yesterday in my new Skeletoes shoes. (More on that another time!)
And on Thursday and Saturday I did the new Walk Away the Pounds DVD I bought, the one mile power walk. Which was pretty cool. About twenty minutes worth, but worth it. I feel good. I'm tracking my calories but not going crazy, and I feel motivated and am still working at it!
Anyway - thanks for sticking with me and reading along. I think I've finally come to realize that no matter how hard I try to watch my food intake, no matter how hard I work at eating healthy and maintaining a minimum amount of calories, if I'm not working out along with those behaviors it's all pretty much for nada. So for now - I'll keep on keepin' on.
Hope you're doing the same!
