It is that time of week! Weigh in Wednesday and I do not have any exciting milestones to report, rather I gained a little bit this week so I am kind of upset about it. It was my first week on the new plan and I must admit I am struggling because I do not know the points values exactly anymore and it is a new challenge.
I weighed in yesterday at my meeting, I think I will definitely stick to this meeting because as I said last week the leader is amazing. She keeps us laughing the whole time and likes us to chime in and I love the interaction. You know shes good when the place gets packed and there is more than 2-3 guys in the meeting haha.
So I am up 1.2 pounds. I had a pity party for myself about it last night. My problem is I over analyze it, I start thinking I should be down 1-2 lbs so i gained a pound but to me it is like I gained 2-3 pounds because I gained and did not lose like I normally do. So yes the pity party is over and today is a new day. This week I know what I need to do.
I need to work out more. I am getting in 3-4 workouts each week and this is not enough. The workouts are not long enough or tough enough anymore. I need to remember I am not 250lbs anymore and I burn less calories when I workout. So tonight I went for a run and pushed myself harder to run faster and I burned 493 calories. This is how I need to workout 5 days a week.
I need to drink more water! I have been getting in 40-60 ounces a day and this is simply not enough. I need to get back on my 100 ounces of water a day like I did during srinkvivor.
I need to weigh everything. After you stay on a program for awhile you tend to start guesstimating and get lazy with things. So I will make sure to use my scale everyday and make sure to be more strict about what I eat.
So the lovely thing about weight watchers is today is a new day and I can make it better with a few small moves. The important thing is I know what I need to do now I just need to be militant and make it happen!
