Weigh In #17

Very very pleased today...I weighed in with a loss of 1.6lbs! That takes me below the 230 mark!!!! I have no idea when the last time was that I weighed in the 220s.. probably at least 8.5 years ago. So yes, I'm a happy girl today.

My weekend was busy but good.. I made decent food choices but didn't track everything. Today is a new week though and my goal is to make it through, tracking everything. I was thinking today about flex points.. and how I allow myself indulgences (without tracking most times) because "I know I have the FP for them". Mentally for me, FPs seem to be this big buffer that somehow swallow up the extra points that I eat. It's like an excuse for extra treats. I do think though, if FPs are used properly, they are great. But I'm not able to do that. So, I'm going to divide them up and use some daily. Maybe like the Wendi plan? I'm not very familiar with the Wendi method but I'll do some reading up on it and get it figured out. I just think that if they are divied up like that, I won't be able to use them as an excuse. Plus, this works in with my JOLT plan of mixing things up and staying motivated.

My workout today was cut a little short. I biked for 15 and ran for 35 - almost didn't make it though because towards the end, these awful cramps started up... and I had to run to the washroom. Sorry if thats TMI! After that, I felt terrible and decided not to do my 35 on the elliptical and went home instead. Not sure if a bit of a virus is passing through or what... but I hope it's gone soon.

Anyhow, that's all for now.. I'm enjoying blogging from my bed this afternoon as we recently installed a wireless router. I've decided that a bit of a restful afternoon is in order for me today!

That's great on another 1.6 lbs. Slowly but surely, right?

Greatjob on going down.

I made some crappy food choices this weekend and did a poor job of tracking them. On the plus side there is no record of it #:o)

Have a great day and keep it up.
