weigh in 25

last week: 183.4
this week: 186.6
gain of 3.2

ok so i didnt track wednesday (after lunch) or thursday (ww online kind of sort of yelled at me, gave me a red exclamation point) and i was all about eating as much as i could.  so yes i gained weight, but it is not REAL weight. not just yet.  way back when i lost the weight the first time (didnt get to my goal before i gave up) i would take off on holidays, just to enjoy it and not freak out about how many calories/points/carbs i was eating. 

im back on track today.  feeling somewhat fooded out.  (is that possible?)  normally on fridays i blow my weeklies, but today im right at 29 points for the day (oh i got an extra point cause i went above whatever that threshold was). 

so i did my 5k on saturday last week and earned 4 points.  whoa, that is nuts.  i dont recall what else i did on saturday (maybe shopping at sams club?) 

my times (last week):
1 Mile: 16 mins 2 seconds
2 Mile: 17 mins 14 seconds
3 mile: 17 mins 30 seconds
last 0.11: 2 minutes 10 seconds
total time 52 minutes and 54 seconds

this week:
my times:
1 Mile: 15 mins 58 seconds
2 Mile:  16 mins 42 seconds
3 mile: 17 mins 01 seconds
last 0.11: 1 minutes 44 seconds
total time  51 minutes and 05 seconds  shaved off 1 minute and 49 seconds from my first time.

like i stated last week, im not a runner (i have never been a runner/im not sure im cut out to be a runner).  but im pretty happy with my time. 

the 4 points i earned was my most points ever earned.  so i was pretty happy about that.  i eat my activity points (well this week i ate someone elses points too).

we did have good thanksgiving, the food was super yummy and family was super happy.  that is all that matters (even my doggie got a to go plate from my MIL).   i did rewatch the hunger games 2, my friends had invited me, and i was like YEP.  but ive already seen it.  and it was good the second time too.

lets hope next weeks weigh in is much less than it was last week.

weight watchers weigh in number 24

last week: 184.8
this week: 183.4
loss of: 1.4

See what i got today!??  YES.  i was a little shocked when i saw i lost 1.4 lbs this week.  i was like whoa.  my eating has been better (aka i ran out of nutella and i have no restocked it, might be a good thing). 

I also hit my goal of 7 activity points this week (9 actually).  two days this past week i got 3 points. one was last friday, i was off work and worked out at the gym,  not sure how i got 3 points, but ill take it.  the other day i hit 3 points was monday, i was running around for work purposes getting plans ran off and i had to run over to acme to get girly products, so along with the gym i hit 3 points.  my goal is still 7 points per week.  I have been good about my scheduled workout days (taking off tuesdays and thursdays).  also my husband has been almost sticking to his schedule (to go 3 days a week) one day he missed it cause he was sick and the other day he missed the gym thanks to his ex wife messing up our schedule (not picking up the step son on time).  my goal is to keep up the 7 points per week until december is over.  then i want to adjust.

so my points break down, 28 points per day, all weeklies and all activities eaten
Friday: 58
Saturday: 35
Sunday: 37
Monday: 31
Tuesday: 31
Wednesday: 32
Thursday: 30
total 254
average 36.3 points per day.

last week i was averaging 35. something points per day. 

i also started this new thing at the gym, where im going to do a 5K every saturday.  im not a runner, even in high school with the required 1 mile run (timed) i never got below 16 minutes (and yes i got in trouble, but my dad was even more lazy than me, so he didnt care).  so i kept track of my info. this is just me writing it in my notepad on my ipod.  so im walking the 5K. 

my times:
1 Mile: 16 mins 2 seconds
2 Mile: 17 mins 14 seconds
3 mile: 17 mins 30 seconds
last 0.11: 2 minutes 10 seconds
total time 52 minutes and 54 seconds

the cals burned according to the treadmill was 309, but i think i didnt enter my weigh in until a bit later.  plus i never trust those machines.  i know that i can walk as fast as 4.2 miles per hour which 4.0 is a 15 minute mile.  but i cant keep that up for long periods of time.  so maybe that is what i will work towards?  maybe i should do an entry on Saturday with the results of the 5k. or at least closer to the 5K day (saturday)

weigh in number 23

last week: 185.2
this week: 184.8
loss of 0.4

 points per day, all point eaten each day (28), all activities and all weeklies eaten.

Friday: 57
Saturday: 44
Sunday: 29
Monday: 30
Tuesday: 29
Wednesday: 29
Thursday: 30
totals: 248 average 35.4 per day

so i have some happy news to report, my gym opened early.  i missed three days of it being open but that was 4 days earlier than i was going to go.  it was an accident that i figured out it was open (as in my bird needed pellets and they only sell those at a pet store, so i went to the one next to the new gym and saw a giant sign that said no open!!!).  so i have gone to the gym sunday, monday and wednesday.  i plan on going today.  so i did not hit my 7 points per week goal, but we are really going to try this week. 

i am doing a bit better with my food this week, still having a lot of  sugar cravings, im blaming hormones for this.  this should all sort itself out in a few days. i also kind of screwed myself with eating most of my dailies over the weekend. i need to keep a few extra for things like a side with dinner. 

i also have this new idea. so normally at 2pm i eat a special k pantry crisp, for 3 points. i discovered that a packet of instant oatmeal is 4 points. so i ate a packet of oatmeal yesterday instead of the pantry crisp and i was full until dinner time.  so for one more point i get something that really fills me up. 

i am off work today, for a nerd reason.  we got a playstation 4.  my husband has been watching all of the info and reading all of the articles.  so i originally took today off to stand in line to get one somewhere.  turns out the gamestop near my house had them for sale yesterday at 6pm, so my husband paid for it and came home.  we then went to pick it up at midnight. everyone was so very nice to each other by the way. so as i should have just said i was coming in i opted to stay home.  so we already went out to lunch together and have just been having a low key day. 

so lets hope next week we see a much lower number.  but i need to remember that paying attention to what i eat and it will pay off on the scale.

weight watchers weigh in 22

last week: 186.2
this week: 185.2
loss of 1.0 lb

my weekly break down, 28 points per day, all activity points and all weeklies eaten

Friday: 56
Saturday: 40
Sunday: 35
Monday: 28
Tuesday: 29
Wednesday: 29
Thursday: 29
total: 246/average 35.1 points per day

so i dont deserve to lose that pound this week.  (hey i am happy and will take it) but i have been horrible at the WW counting lately.  I have been eating random things and not counting them.  I havent really been working out (and yes im using the excuse that my new gym isnt open and i cancelled my Y membership as of Oct 31).  the new gym opens nov 13.  so that is wednesday.  i need to refind my gym locks (i have two with the same exact combination, the question is can i remember it?  i think i know it) the Y had lockers with a combo pad on it, so i stopped bringing my lock because i swore every time i was in the locker room a random naked woman would need to be in the locker next to mine (i might walk around in front of my husband minus clothes but never in public)

i plan to hit the ground running at the new gym.  i want to attempt to get at least 1 point per day in December in activity.  then move that up to 2 points in Jan.  i think overall id like to aim for around 4 points per day (at least an average).  i think that is pretty healthy.  plus id have killer amounts of snacks for 4 points.  id also like to try new classes at the gym, maybe once a week.

i do feel a little more motivated than i did last week, but still i for some reason have been super snacky lately.  and the left over halloween candy is not helping matters.  but i need to remember that while i may be on weight watchers, my husband and step son arent (step son is super skinny too, he actually will turn down candy a lot of the times, i grew up a chubby kid, i never said no to a candy).

oh so im going to post this photo, i posted it to facebook a few days ago.  and i got a ton of compliments about how skinny i look.

so my husband took this photo cause i put a scarf on kira and said we were twins, i got a lot of compliments on how much i have lost.  (23.4 lbs as of today from my start of WW this past june).  and yes enjoy my sweet outfit, i was chilly.  oh my kitchen is gross (carpet on the floor?? in the kitchen?) i inherited my house from my dad in 2005 (with a small mortgage-for this area anyway) then i had to pay inheritance tax on it ($12,000-yes that many zeros).  slowly i have made improvements but sometimes when things are function-able, they dont need to be changed (such as the carpeting in the kitchen).

my friend that does my hair tells me that im losing it strictly in my belly, she is a health nut (did a full ironman in july but when i met her years ago she was this really  big lady-she claimed to have weighed 230 lbs, she is really short, she says she weighs 135 now) said that the reason im losing in my belly is that is where you hold onto weight when you eat junk food.  so she doesnt know exactly what i eat, but i still eat junk food (she is one of those people that would tell you that diets dont work, that you need a lifestyle change, meanwhile she lost a majority of her weight doing a liquid/fasting diet for the longest time, that was before she got healthy).  so i just said thank you.

i sometimes get unsolicited dieting advice, which i always listen to what they say, then i do my own thing (who doesnt?)  i mean weight watchers is working for me, so im not going to change it.  plus we already saw with my last doc appointment that my blood sugars were within the normal range.  so its obviously working inside of my body.

   see this pic?  its not mine. taken from the internets. i saw it somewhere (myfitnesspal?) when someone was complaining about losing weight but not losing inches, they asked where the weight was coming off, a person posted this pic saying something along the lines of it comes out of the internal organs first.  now i dont know if this is the same person. or just a side by side of two people at different sizes, but the overall idea is good.  so lets hope that im losing from my internal organs (i was told a zillion years ago that i had a fatty liver-who wants to be told that?).

weight watchers weigh in 21

last week: 185.4
this week: 186.2
gain of 0.8 lb

points break down. 28 per day. all activity and all weeklies eaten

Friday: 62
Saturday: 40
Sunday: 29
Monday: 34
Tuesday: 28
Wednesday: 30
Thursday: 28
total 251, average 35.9

so ive been having a rough week.  it is ovulation week, not sure if that is part of it.  ive been feeling a bit defeated lately.  and yes you can see i went over by 2 points.  and im sure i went over by that, with what weight watchers called BLTs (bites, licks and taste).  plus as of midnight I am no longer a member of my gym (cancelled due to joining a new gym that isnt even open until Nov 13). 

even with lack of motivation im not doing too shabby.  it is definitely easier to lose weight when you weigh more.  haha.  my lowest adult weight ever was 174, which i got that low after doing WW for a while followed by a nice low carb diet-which i will never do again.   the reason for not low carbing is that when i was doing it i was extremely tired all of the time, i would forget everything (horrible for a person with a really great memory) and my period would never leave when i was low carbing.  yes i got to my all time lowest weight but at what cost?  i stopped low carbing when i got the stomach flu and the idea of eating meat for breakfast made me want to puke. 

so my idea for this week is to just track everything and try to get 30 minutes of working out in.  this might be a bit harder on the weekends when my step son is over (being that i only have one tv that works and has an area in front of it for me to workout, which is in our livingroom).  im hoping this weekend to get outside and rake some leaves, that is a good workout that also gets some chores done.  but it poured rain today and id rather not rake up wet leaves (oh the joys of being a home owner).
hopefully weigh in 22 is better than this one.
