It's funny, because when I started this blog, I wrote all the time, and a couple months later, I am seriously lacking in the blog department. When I first started WW, this blog helped me w/the transition from "old lifestyle" to "new lifestyle". Now that my new lifestyle has become a way of life, it's much easier, and I find myself thinking about it less. Which on one hand is good, I'm not obsessing about my next meal like I was in the beginning. But on the other hand, I feel badly because I am not only slacking in writing, but also slacking in reading. I am sorry to all of you who I read that I have not been keeping up w/your progress like I should be. I will try to be better.
Not only am I focusing on my healthy lifestyle, but I am planning a March wedding & am also planning a December baby shower for a friend. I'm also in the process of finding a new job. So, these are the things that have been keeping me busy!
I attended a conference on Friday, so all of my food for the day was being provided & I had no say in it. It turned out it wasn't so bad though. I got there, and they had a breakfast spread w/muffins, pastries, and FRUIT. So, I loaded up on the fruit & grabbed a granola bar. Lunch was turkey sandwiches on a croissant. The croissant wouldn't have been my first choice, but I will say that it was delicious & I enjoyed it. I also had a pack of Lays potato chips. Did you know that there are only THREE ingredients in the regular Lay's? Potatoes, Salt, and Sunflower Oil. I thought it was surprising. But anyway, I'm off topic. The afternoon break brought more food. They had chips, candy, popcorn, and cookies set out. I got about a cup of popcorn & picked up one cookie. It was one of those Milano cookies. I took a bite of it, and I realized "I don't love this like I used to." So, I didn't eat it. Do you know how huge that is?! To stop eating something even though it tastes OK, but just isn't really GREAT. I was proud.
Today I wasn't too hungry all day. I ended up only eating two meals (slept in & missed breakfast), so they were higher in points than I usually would have eaten in 2 meals, but I don't want to slack on those points, so it all worked out. I did slack this weekend on my water. The weekends are the hardest water-wise for me! I went hiking both yesterday & today, so that was good. I didn't go to the gym all week. It was just one of those weeks where I wasn't feeling it. Next week I'll get back to it.
I know I won't be seeing a 2 in front of my weight this week... well, I assume I won't... I'd have to lose over 4 pounds. But, I do hope to make up what was gained last week in water weight. We shall see. I do have to weigh in at 10am on Tuesday instead of my usual 5:30, and that will make a difference. That actually may have something to do w/my gain last week. The week before was a mid-morning WI, and last week was an evening WI, so I probably was about the same weight. So, this week may show a little more of a drop that I anticipate since it'll be earlier in the day.
Anyway, this whole daylight savings time throws my body out of whack. I'm exhausted & heading to bed!
