I recently started again with a blank page. Taking a step to start fresh and after having the blog for a week I went to my first weigh in Wednesday night. I'm happy to report that I lost 6.4 pounds!
I'm very excited about this loss because the week prior I gained 2 after a crazy weekend of too many indulgences and my sister's birthday the week prior. I knew this week I needed to be on track and truly committed to be serious and not let myself backslide. In total I've now lost 9.4 pounds since I recently rejoined weight watchers. It is an excellent start and I am feeling very motivated to keep it up this week.
Obviously, with such a big loss this week I did a lot of things right. Some of the things I contribute to making such an impact on the scale this week are:
- Tracking everything
- planning dinner each night, pre tracking it
- packing my lunch to bring to work every day
- increasing 2 extra workouts into my week
I didn't go crazy and make tons of changes, but I've started myself in the right direction. Some things I could have improved on this week was planning better afternoon snacks. I'm finding that if I don't have something in the afternoon around 4, before I leave the office, that by the time I get home later in the evening I want to eat everything in sight while I eat dinner. I'm trying to allow for a protein snack for then to curb that.
This week my goal is to get more sleep to allow for waking up early to sneak in my workouts. Its so hard to get them in later if I don't force myself to get up and do it in the morning. Really, I do feel better on days I workout in the morning too so I know once I get in a better habit of it I'll adjust.
I'm still getting back into the blogging groove here, but thank you so much to all of you who have reached out and welcomed me back! I hope to get caught up with you all soon!
