Today is week two weigh in for the new challenge at Tales from the Scales and thank goodness I use Saturday as my weigh in day considering yesterday was a 36 point day!! Between that wonderful time of the month and having one of my killer migraines I managed to eat a snickers bar, an Arby's regular roast beef sandwich, a small order of onion petals, a bag of mini chocolate chip cookies, and of course breakfast and lunch. Now I have 12 weekly allowance points left for the week. Thank goodness I have until this Saturday to work it all off.
As of this past Saturday though I was down 1 1/2 pounds! I had a pretty good week with my points although I did use all of my weekly allowance points. I am a bit disappointed in myself for not exercising more though. It was a really long week with lots of after school meetings and activities so I was just too tired to get my butt on the treadmill. Over the weekend I did walk though and that felt great. It seems like every week I have more exercise and fruits and veggies as my goal and still every week I feel that I am lacking. I am not quite sure what I should do. What do you all do when you get stuck in a rut? Any helpful hints on how I can get some more fruits and veggies in or motivate myself to walk even when I am exhausted??
WEEK 37 / -1.5 / -38.5
Only 1 1/2 pounds to go before I reach my 40 pound mark!!!
Congratulations!! I am so glad that you are getting so much progress going on. What you're doing works for you even in spite of Arbys (horsey sauce is my secret undoing, I love it!).ReplyDelete
Go, Mel! Congrats on the loss. For max fruit and veggie consumption, I like the V-8 low sodium tomato juice or the V-8 Fusion.ReplyDelete
