Under control

I have got to get things under control.  There was just way too much emtional stuff that I let get to me this week.  It was all out of my control, yet I was doing all I could to TRY to control it.  Yet, what it did was leave me stressed and not making good choices.  I know I didn't do the best.  Can I find some successes?  Yes, I tracked all week...I counted every point I put into my mouth...even the 4 pieces of Dominos pizza!  :(  Yet, my biggest setback....activity.
I am not sure what it is going to take for me to realize I have GOT to get moving.  I am going to end up right where I left off before.  Stuck, upset and frustrated...and quitting.  I have even tried challenging my students to run with me in a 5K at the end of the month....have I done ANY training?  HELL NO.  I'm gonna die.  *sigh*  What is wrong with me?  Why can't I get this together?

Another successful week.

Oh how I WISH this is the weight that was showing last night on my scale at Weight Watchers.  That is a dream world right there, probably not one that I really want to be in either.  Not sure I am cut out to be 135 pounds!  lol....BUT...the scale was DOWN last night.  So, for that alone I am happy.  I am working on taking off the extra 8 pounds I put on when I stopped.  I want to keep the momentum going to push through the hump that I kept hitting when I gave up. 

I am happy with my progress to date...but want more.  I have found a happy balance in my eating right now so that helps.  I just realized I don't need to eat "breakfast foods" for breakfast!  They don't tend to fill me up enough to get through my day without cravings.  I eat snacks but it simply makes me want more.  So, instead I am eating a higher protein breakfast.  It tends to keep me much more satisfied and I am able to make it until my lunch time.'s to another loss...time to focus on this week.  YIPPEE!

UGH what a struggle!

This week has NOT been good choices wise for me.  I have used almost all my weeky points which is something I have never done.  I haven't really truly "worked out" in the traditional sense.  Yes, I got activity but it was unconventional and not sure it did the job it should have.  I'm feeling a little apprehensive about tomorrow's weigh in.  I want to do it surprisingly, but I am nervous.

OMG POINT OVERLOAD TOTALLY did horrible yesterday!  By 4:00 yesterday afternoon I had already used 5 of my weekly points....Then because I didn't care...we ordered pizza and I ended up eating 17 points extra yesterday!  Honestly, I felt sick afterwards and really down.  I couldn't figure it out.  My man was like..."What's wrong?"  I didn't really have an answer for him.  I honestly think I was disappointed in myself for not even attempting to stay in my points yesterday. 

However, I promised myself I was going to look at the bright side of least I tracked it all and at least I did it on Thursday (day after weigh in) so I have the rest of the week to stay on track.'s to today...I will make it today!  (I have to...cause I still feel icky from yesterday. :( )

First week over!

So, I was very happy going into my meeting last night.  I had met my goals of tracking every day, increasing my water intake and staying within my points.  I knew I hadn't met my activity goal, but 75% made me happy considering when I gave up 2 months ago, I couldn't have said I met any.  So...drum roll please...........................................................DOWN 2.2!!!  Yep, that's right...I was successful.  I was happy with my weight loss and pleased that I KNEW I had done the things I needed to do this week. is the start of a new week.
This weeks goals are:
Maintain the goals from last week of water intake, tracking, and within my points. 
ACTIVITY!  I have a challenge that I placed in front of my students to RUN a 5K on April I have GOT to get moving on my activity.  So, this week I am focusing on that...activity activity activity!  Here's to excercise!!!

Reaching my Goals today I came back to read my blog to see I let you all in on my goals on Thursday...let's see how I'm doing on them.
Here is what they were:
Goals for this week:
Stay within my points daily -- not sure this has been accomplished as I have went into my weekly points the last 2 days.  :( is what it is...I have used some of my weekly points, but that is what they are there for right? 
Do something active both days this weekend (trying to be realistic on what I WILL do.) -- um...yeah so the extent of anything "active" I did today was walk around Michael's.  I simply enjoyed my quiet day today and never got myself around to anything least not yet.  However, there is still I will have to do it tomorrow because I'll take 50% lol...well at least it will make me feel less guilty!
Cut back on all the soda and juice...switch back to my water -- This one I have to say I have been VERY good at!  On Thursday I had a bottle of Dr. Pepper, but then on Friday I only had a can and today...........wait for it...wait for it.....NO SODA AT ALL!!!  No juice no koolaid...YEAH!  I've had a nice glass of cold milk with lunch and have had ice water the rest of the day!
Track daily!!!!!!!! -- I struggle with tracking my food because I want to pretend if I don't write it, I didn't eat it!  HEHE!  yet...I have written it down EVERY day so far...and yes even all the extra points I have eaten.  So...I have 30 of my weekly points left.  Not great at all, but at least there are still some there.  I will just have to up things so I can make it work out. 

The last thing that I'd like to share that...although I went over my points today (by 1) I did a great job of staying out of the kitchen for snacks.  I know it might not seem that way when I say I went over my points, yet I really did!  Snack wise today, I simply a WW 2 point bar and some Starburst Jelly Beans that I measured out with a measuring cup!  lol...BUT I tracked it! Thanks to my new love for crocheting for keeping me out of the refrigerator!  I think having my hands busy doin something productive took away 2 cravings...the one to eat and the one to smoke!  I wasn't bored I guess, so thus, I didn't need to fill myself up with anything.  Thank you small victories!!!
