Last week I only made it to the gym twice but still managed to get my two hours on the elliptical in. And in doing so remembered how good I feel after longer cardio sessions: I am more relaxed and I’ve had plenty of time to 1) let my mind wander and 2) get over whatever might be bothering me. I’m kind of an over-thinker and exercise is good therapy for me.
Last week I missed my weight watchers meeting for the first time; it was because of the snow. I hated missing the meeting and am really looking forward to going this Wednesday.
I have this week off so will be able to get tons of gym-time in! Which is great because since I still am not doing so well tracking food, and because I used the over 600 calories I burned at the gym Saturday as license to eat whatever I wanted at that final Christmas gathering later that day… which extended into the next day (Waffle House, oopsy)… Ahem. You get the idea. With two weeks between weight watchers weigh-in’s this time, I would really like to be able to show some kind of a loss and am not sure I will. But that does not take away from the fact that I still made it through the holidays (not including our extended version) a full size smaller.
After a conversation with Anonymous Fat Girl in the comments on a post she wrote about putting your progress stats out there and another post as well, I’ve decided to bite the bullet and post my weight and measurements. I have to work on it since Blogger does not really have a ready-made way to make pages (where you have links on top of the page or in your side bar to static pages like “About Me”, “Progress”, etc.) but I found a way to make it work so that will be coming up this week.
Also coming up this week: trying shirataki noodles which are 20 calories a serving, and cooking spaghetti squash which is a low-calorie delicately flavored vegetable treat.
Have a fab week!
