Week one review and weigh in! Day 5

So how did week one with Weight Watchers go??

My workout plan for this week:
  • Friday: weights Done
  • Saturday: yoga Done
  • Sunday: may get some walking or biking in but it will mainly be a rest day Done
  • Monday: interval walking  Done
Although I started on Friday my weigh in’s are on Tuesday because that’s when I go to my meetings. So this week was only 4 days!  What amazes me is that I still had a great weigh in. I’m down 4 lbs since Friday!! I know it’s due to less sodium but I’m still very happy with it.
What I did this week:
  1. I drank at least 8 cups of water everyday.
  2. I wrote down every taste, lick and bite that went in my mouth.
  3. Weekly point allowance used: 7
  4. Weekly point allowance balance at the end of the week: 42
  5. Activity points earned: 19
So far I’m really happy with the plan.
These are the cutest shoes!

On to week 2

Today’s exercise was a weight routine so that’s what I did besides walking for an hour to Weight Watchers and back!
  1. Dumbbell chest press 2 x 10 5 lb
  2. One armed dumbbell row 2 x 10 5 lb
  3. Bicep curl 2 x 10 5 lb
  4. Tricep extensions 2 x 10 5lb
  5. Lateral raise 2 x 10 5 lb
  6. Squats x 20
  7. Front lunge (I had a really hard time with these so I’m just going to try to get the right form for now and not worry how many)
  8. Bicycle (I’m just glad you couldn’t see me try to do this one! 10 on each side
  9. Superman x 10
That’s right the same ones as last week Smile
