Weigh in and weekly update

This morning I went to my Weight Watchers meeting and weigh in. I’m happy to say I lost  -1.7 this week. I also earned 40 activity points which is the most I’ve ever earned.

Last week I worked out more than I can remember doing in a long time. I’ve been doing the C25K and doing it 4 days instead of 3 because I’ve been loving it so much. And believe you me I’m sweating and catching my breath when I’m doing it.
My eating has been very good and in fact I haven’t been craving any of my trigger foods at all. Last night I made that stir fry with a new to me sauce. It was nasty and I won’t be using that again. So I ate the shrimp, some of the broccoli and then grabbed a small piece (30g) of light cheese and a couple of mandarin oranges. I was satisfied and happy with my choices. Ugh I hate when I try something new and it tastes bad!!

Here are my exercise stats from last week:
  • Tues: 85 minutes
  • Weds: 75 minutes
  • Thurs: 80 minutes
  • Fri: – none
  • Sat: – none
  • Sun: 80 minutes
  • Mon: 105 minutes
Now that’s speed walking and brisk walking. I’m going to pick up some weights this week. I promise.

Today’s exercise was doing W3D1 on my way to Weight Watchers. I usually walk back as well but a friend picked me up and dropped me at the grocery store across from where I live since I had to pick up a few things.
Yep that's a ducks butt! Love it :)

I bought a workout t-shirt today that says run fast or be last. I'm going to wear it when I'm doing the C25K.
