I did it!

Over the last few years, even when I've been in one of my many "working out all the time phases", I've never gone to the Y to workout on a Saturday. Well guess what! I did it today! I had intended to go bright and early but forgot to call babysitting and book spots for the girls so by the time I called, the soonest I could get them in was 1pm. But that's OK! We went to the mall first for lunch (and I had a 6" ham sub - only 5 points and a skinny cinnamon dolce latte from Starbucks that I've heard everyone talking about - 90 cals and 2 points for that and OMG YUM! - but I digress..) I worked out really hard! 30 minutes on the elliptical and another 30 on the treadmill (at an incline of 9 by the way) - same time as usual but I had the energy to really pick up the intensity today. I felt great! And even better, I already booked babysitting for the girls for next Saturday morning at 9:30 am. Go me!! LOL

I'm not sure what the difference is this time, but so far I'm finding it almost easy to stay on program. I haven't been hungry even once and in a way that worries me. I haven't used any of my activity points and none of my flex points either. Is that a bad thing? Should I be eating more?

By the way, I just have to share my favorite meal right now. I've had it twice in the last few days. It all starts with one of those little frozen dinners - the WW Smart Ones Santa Fe Rice and Beans. Then I cook up a serving of chicken breast (flavoured with hot sauce - 0 points) and throw all of this over a plateful of mixed greens and cilantro. Then I add a little more hot sauce on top of everything. This is a very filling meal and I find that it's a great way for me to get down a bunch of greens. YUM!

Anyways, I'm out for now... I've still got a bunch of stuff to get ready for church tomorrow.

I think it's easy becaus you are probably ready for it. I can tell that I am finally ready to. It was the same with smoking, when I finally quit, I had a certain readiness and resolve. I hope you don't mind me commenting. I ran across your blog through angie all the way. We seem like we might be at the same points in this journey.

Sounds like an awesome work out! Doesn't it feel wonderful to step it up and sweat?!
