Off-kilter

I just haven't felt great about WW this week. I've stayed on plan, don't get me wrong, but something's been off. I think my problem is that I haven't had like *any* water this week, and I can definately feel a difference. So, today I've got it next to me, all filled up & ready to drink! The scale's been up a little bit since I took a client out for lunch on Wednesday. We had pizza, and I've felt bloated ever since! Hopefully getting back on track w/my water will help.

I've used my BL workout DVD once, and I felt the burn, lemme tell you! I did the warm up, then the strength/core workout, then cool down. I didn't hurt the next day during the day, but the next evening, oooh, my muscles were like jelly! Last night I used my ball & bands & did a couple of the free sparkpeople workouts. They only have a few, but it was a pretty good workout. I'll admit that I'm a little scared of the ball. First of all, I have a fear of the thing totally popping while I'm using it. Then my balance with it is horrible at this point, because I've never used one before, so I'll probably wipe out a time or two before this is all over.

After work I'm going letterboxing with a friend. I'm going to look online for some new boxes that require some hiking.

I think I've also kind of been in a funk this week b/c the kitchen is a MESS, and I haven't cooked all week. We have a teeny tiny kitchen, so if I get behind on dishes or taking the trash out, the place is just no usable at all. I should clean that tonight. I'm thinking about making some more of my stuffed burgers that are oh-so-good. They make a ton, and so I freeze half of it. Maybe I'll also make a crockpot of my chicken tortilla soup and freeze some of it too.

I need to get back to posting recipes on here... it's called Teale's Meals for a reason! This weekend I'll get back on that for sure! I hope to try 2 new things this weekend, that's my goal! I'd also like to get to the gym once.

OK, I better get back to work... they don't pay me for nothing (although they don't pay me enough!). Hope everyone has a great OP weekend!

I hope you do better with meeting your water quota today! I'm sure it will make a difference in how you feel if you do.

Good luck with the BL DVD! I've been thinking about getting it... but I don't think I'm up to it yet. Or maybe I'm just afraid of it after reading everyone's reviews. lol

Your recipes always looks so yummy and nutritious! Thanks for posting them. I am definitely going to try several of them.

The ball scared me too at first, I don't like feeling off balance so it took some getting used to. Good for you for working out even though you're feeling "blah" this week! :)

Oh, I thought I would share a pretty WW-friendly recipe I created that I thought you might like. I use it as a fruit dip, but it's also good as a "frosting" for low cal cakes and things:

What I do is MAKE myself drink at least half my water (4 glasses) before I leave work that day. I dont care if Im standing there in the parking lot chugging, I make it a rule, and I always stick to it. Then I drink the other 4 later on the evening and I usually am less hungry as well.Today at work they ran out of water, so I went and WALKED to the corner store and bought water, thats how important it is. increase that, and I bet you you will feel better.

I have a ball and I only use it for crunches, I have no idea what else to do with it.

I'm looking forward to seeing more recipes, I try to post a few a week when I'm in creative mode, it will be nice to see more.
