Thank you all for such great positive comments on my last post. I was feeling pretty bad at that point. After I posted that I decided that I should try the weight watchers 24 hour online chat. It actually helped tremendously. Afterward I had a few new ideas and I felt so much more positive.
I went to Weight Watchers last night and I was up 1.8lbs. Good news is…. I didn’t cry! I held my head up and my Mom and I walked out, both of us being up this week, both of us smiling. We went straight home, where we made ourselves a good dinner and planned out our meals for this week.
Tonight I am making us a healthy version of chicken cordon bleu, with a side of broccoli and carrots! It will be delicious!
I tracked everything I have eaten today and I drank water all day. I did have a coffee this morning, but I will make sure to drink more water when I get home and no diet pepsi.
In just under two weeks my family is heading to Toronto. I’m expecting to be eating in restaurants a lot. I’m going to have to work very very hard at making healthy choice instead of ordering whatever sounds delicious. Does anyone have any great ideas for restaurants? Keep in mind I can’t take half with me. I’m thinking maybe just have appies… or being sure to have green salad as a side instead of fries or mashed potato. I am probably going to be on my phone a lot calculating points and reading the nutritional info heh. I also plan on saving all of my weekly points. Bonus is that the trip crosses my weight watcher week border, so I will have one set of weeklies the first three days and then the last two days I will get more weeklies…. I am totally going to use that to my advantage…
I’m not going to get into hard core working out, though one day I would like to start working out, but for now I’m going to be walking a lot more. I want to be able to earn lots of activity points. I usually try not to use them, but if I’m not tracking or not paying attention I end up going over them. My goal is to earn activity points by walking on my lunch break, and then to avoid using them.
This week I am going to be dedicated to tracking, water, walking, and portion sizes.
I can do this.
Thank you guys again for all the helpful comments, seriously it meant a lot to me.
Positive thing for the day: Today I discovered that you can send Starbucks gift cards digitally. It is my friends birthday and she lives far away, so I sent her a starbucks gift card through email….. That’s just so cool. I love the internet.
