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.
