So after all the good food we ate (pizza twice, mexican twice, ice cream, burgers, barbecue…ahem…booze…) and not one official workout on the books for our whole vacation, this is what I have to show for it…
Eh, not too shabby! I would have been satisfied to maintain, so I will take this tiny loss. I’m not sure what your philosophy is when it comes to vacation, but this was a long overdue trip and my priority was to enjoy myself, my family and relax. I did track my food over half the time and we walked a LOT while we were out and about (made me wish I had a Fitbit!). But we are home and I’m ready to hit it hard with tracking, choosing whole, nutritious foods, and consistent workouts. Also, since February 1st, (beginning of WW) I’m down a total of 4.75 inches. Yes! I also tried on a medium t-shirt and it fit! Like not awkwardly fit, but fit-fit. Those non-scale victories are the best! I’ve also noticed I take more selfies. Ha! Also, it was so warm this weekend when I took this, I was sitting out to get some sun. And now it may snow tomorrow! Wah!
I bought the Weight Watchers Plan and Track this week so I could have a paper tracker. Thanks to a discount for being a regular attender to my meeting I got it for $0.95! I tracked in a similar paper tracker when I used Weight Watchers before, and there is just something about writing it down with pen and paper that helps me stay accountable. I was a little annoyed that it was bigger than the old one, but I like that it now has a calendar for the week, grocery list and meal planning section! My little organizational freak heart is rejoicing!
My Workout Plan for this Week:
Wednesday: Strength Workout
Thursday: Running Workout
Friday: Strength Workout
Saturday: Running Workout
Monday: Strength Workout
I’m back to running again. I feel like I go through spurts when I run and run and then build up to my 5K mileage and then stop. Just stop. For a couple weeks and then I pick it back up again and go back through the same process again. Which is stupid. So I need to follow through and actually build up to a 5K and then COMPLETE it! I’m going to use this program. I’m planning on doing the K5K over Memorial Day Weekend like I did two years ago. This week I’m also going to be doing the Beginner Strength Workout from Nerd Fitness. I just found the site and my inner nerd loves it!
Welp, that’s all for now, folks! Hope you have a great day!
What goals are you working on? How do you like to track your progress?
What is your favorite healthy and quick lunch food? (Lunch is so hard for me to plan for!)
