Last night I worked a WW meeting. For those of you that don't know, I work for WW on the side. I am a trained leader, receptionist, and weigher. I have done my share of all of these responsibilities at one time or another, but currently I just do one meeting. At this meeting I just weigh.
The last few weeks I've really thought hard about quitting. Just because it is a commitment to go each week.
Last night though was somewhat different. I have made friends with several of the members. I've seen them drop some serious weight and gain a new attitude about themselves. I must admit I'm envious! They are working hard and seeing results. I know the program works. I've done it and been in the exact place as these ladies have been.
The last few months haven't been easy for me. I go up and down with my weight. I stopped running then started again. It's just been an up and down cycle for me. This summer has been super hectic at work! I mean to the point of almost stressful at times!
Where I'm getting with this:
I have done calories for a while now and not points. When I was on points back 3 years ago, I lost weight perfectly. Since switching over to cals my exercise has changed and my cals increased slightly. Not that this is bad. I needed the extra cals for fuel. Now that I'm still running and training for another half marathon, I will still need to increase, but this time I'm going back points and the weight watchers system!
With Cals I was doing a big MB (Metabilic Boost) each week. To be honest, they have pros and cons. For me, it is a con. I eat too much and then wind up wanting more. One big meal just pushes me over the edge. Its like I just crave more when I take one little bite. So, I'm thinking about cutting out the MB's each week. With points if I want a cookies, or some french fries I'll count it. Sure, I won't have these all the time or daily, but once or twice a week, I'm gonna indulge!
I am back on counting points. It works for me and I was very successful at it.
I made a promise to several of my gals at WW last night that I was tracking again. Writing everything down that goes in my mouth!
I've tracked the last 2 days and will do so again today as well! Wish me luck!
Last night I did some ST too when I got home. I wanted to workout and even though I would of loved to park my butt in front of the TV, I did a ST routine instead. It felt great when I finished.
Tonight I'll be running again. I'm not sure yet on the mileage. Either 4 or 7 miles. I need to do a long run at some point this week and I'm not sure our weekend plans yet.
Austin is still up in the air. It doesn't look good though. 70 mph wind and heavy rain right at game time! We shall see.
If you are still reading...thanks! I need all the encouragement I can get right now!
Big presentation today....gotta get going!
