I’m so glad that I did it!

I was waffling a bit on doing the 5K walking race today. Actually I was a volunteer sweeper for the 5K because I worked on my feet for 8 hours until 10pm last night and my right foot was aching already. I really didn't want to re-injure myself. It was also supposed to rain and it was only 4 Celsius or 39 Fahrenheit this morning. It was flipping cold!!
 Sad smile
But then I got up, saw that the street was dry and I just had to do it. Didn’t hurt that when I peaked at the scale this morning it was showing a new low number!

I had a blast!!! Because we were the sweepers at the back of the 5K walkers we got to cheer on the 10k and 21k walkers with clappers. So Much Fun. I can’t wait to do this every year.
This was my favourite policeman waving his pom poms!

Something funny happened today. I was in the grocery store and one of the items I wanted to pick up was some 5% cream for my coffee. I count the points for it and it really is one of the things I like to use. So I'm in the dairy section and I'm ready to grab the 5% cream when I see this:
50% off!! Then I looked at the ingredients and decided that this could end up being a trigger for more sugar so I just grabbed what I usually buy and I'm happy. So far this is what has been happening since I started the simply filling with ww's. It really does make me look at what I'm eating.

Today’s nosh:

Breakfast for champions!! 1 egg, 2 slices canadian bacon, warmed petite pumpkin scone, home made pumpkin butter an orange and some 5% cream for coffee 2pp

Lunch: banana, plums, carrots, cucumber, lean ham, tomatoes and that chocolaty bowl of awesomeness is cottage cheese put in my bullet with some sweetener and dark cocoa. 0pp
