Well here we go again. I started back up on WW. I know it works, but my motivation can stink when it comes to weight loss. I know that eating healthy and doing the right thing for my body will help me health wise. However, why is it so hard. Everyone wants to do it, but many are not accomplishing it. Why? I wish I knew the answer to that. I had my first weigh in after starting and only loss .8 lbs. It is a loss but not really smiling. I know it is going to be harder now, since I have it on the mind. I find it easier to keep to the plan when I am working. It is on my days off I crumple. My goal is to figure out how to overcome this issue. Another goal of mine is to figure out how to exercise more. I want to run a 5K. I need to figure out how to accomplish my goal. I guess I will start my bucketlist. I want to accomplish several things before I turn 50. I guess I better get to moving and accomplish those goals. Here goes to another off day. Wish me luck.

Another day of WW

Today was an off day. I missed breakfast so I was starving. I had a cobb salad, but didn't realize how many WW points are involved with this salad. I won't do that again.

I need to make sure that I continue to find more WW recipes. I am just tired of the same ole same ole.

Not too much to say today.

Tuesday Temptation

Oh my word. Temptation is the word of the day. Breakfast was fine this morning. I had my usually sandwich round, Queso Fresca Chipolte cheese, turkey bacon, and egg. It was yummy. I was fine. I love the Queso Fresca Chipolte Laughing Cow Cheese. I would definitely recommend this to everyone. Just one WW point plus.

I was able to do Couch to 5K. I did not get to do this outside like I wanted to. I decided to do the workout on the treadmill. I had to take Donovan with me. Let me tell you he was great in the weightroom. He did what I asked. I was so proud of him not getting into any trouble with the weights. Now on my last section of the run I pushed it to 5 mph. I was able to do it. I was tired as anything when I finished, but I did it.

Now the temptation part. I told Donovan if he behaved as I was working out that I would take him to McDonalds. Now when I got there I was wanting a Frappe. However, I did not cave in. Now like an idiot I thought I would have a snack wrap grilled chicken. Big mistake. They were 7 stinkin points. Oh my word. To make matters worse is that I had two. So I had 14 points. I was about to cry. However, I worked out and I was able to use my activity points towards the swap. Oh well.

Dinner was another problem. I didn't cook. I had Buitoni Butternut Squash Ravoli with Brown Butter Sage Sauce. It was was good, but it was 13 stinkin points. It was absolutely horrible. I can't believe I didn't do the points before I ate. Oh well.

Tomorrow is a new day and I am ready to hit the ground running.

Zumba Night

Where to begin about weight? Trying to lose weight is a pain in my butt right now. I don't even know why. I mean I love the healthy eating I am doing. It has been great. I have definitely changed my eating habits. I mean I have cut out the amount of diet cokes I have in a day. I have cut out eating salt and vinegar chips. I have traded them in apples, squash, grapes, cucumbers,etc. I love the food. It makes me cook more and really realize what I am putting in my body.

Tracking points plus has been more difficult for me since school let out. I had no problem at school, and I am not sure why. I mean what exactly is the difference. My weight is up 2 pounds or down 2 pounds. It is usually the same exact pounds. So I haven't been below 148. However, I know I will get there. I just have to do other things.

I am trying new recipes from the WW cookbook. I have enjoyed the ones I have tried. Then I have experimented with creating new things. Not sure if I should do that but I will try. I am wanting to be the next Master Chef. LOL.

Zumba was great tonight. I did a great job at sweating. I need to look into getting some new shoes. I think I might have tweaked my knee a little. I feel like 40 is setting in. The only thing I disliked about the workout is that being that time of the month makes it miserable. I would love to do Zumba more, but just do not have the babysitter for it. That is ok. I will figure out something in my exercise routine.

Quote of the night:
Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!
If at first you don't succeed-try, try again

Yucky Day

Today actually started out great. I got up and made whole wheat french toast. It was awesome. I need to get the light syrup, but that is ok. The whole wheat was awesome. I just found out that I could of used all the batter and froze my french toast. I will definitely do that next time.

We went to church. Donovan and I picked up Tiffaney and the kids. The service was great. I was sad to hear about Samantha having a miscarriage. I will have to keep her in my prayers. The lesson today was given by Lance and it was great. It was just what I needed.

Donovan and I didn't do much today. He played as usually. I need to find things to do with him. He loves to do things. We played his Cars Tire game. It was great. We enjoyed it. However he does get frustrated. I love my Bubba.

I did go to Walgreens today and had a great coupon day. My receipt says I had a 11.88 cents in Walgreens ad savings and then 9.00 in coupons. If I didn't buy the extra stuff I needed, I would of only spent 7.88 cents. My coupon savings included 4 pks of bikini razors, toothpaste, stayfree pads, and Bayer asprin with a 2.00 rebate. Loved it. I just love couponging. I will have to start putting my savings into our Disney Account for next year. So the 20.88 cents I saved needs to go into our savings account. I will do that in a bit.

I made a great dinner. Fig glazed chicken breast, and a penne pasta with cherry tomatoes, sautee zuchinni, saute bell pepper with parmesan cheese. Yummy.

I did the couch to 5K tonight, but a little differently. Because I forgot to do it today due to not feeling well, I did it inside the house. I know it was not the same, but I did do some type of workout.

Tomorrow is a new day and I can't wait to see what it has for Donovan and I. I do know I need to do some reading. I haven't read in a few days.

Now my quote of the day...The best way to prepare for life is to begin to live.

The Tracking Weekend.

Yesterday I got back on the wagon started tracking. I hope I can do it all this week. I have no idea why staying at home is harder for me to track then when I was at school.

My breakfast yesterday was great and I stayed under 10 points. I am really not sure how many points you should have for each meal, but I guess that changes depending on what you eat. Drank tons of water.

Lunch was simple. I ate left over tilipia. It was so good. I made it the night before and have realized that from now on I will buy tilipia from the meat counter. The tilipia was just awesome and it was like a fish steak.

Dinner was left over tilipia again. I refuse to waste food. I made my husband bratwurst and saurkraut. It smelled so good, but I kept to my tilipia. The tilipia was still great. I also made caprese salad. It was super yummy. I will have one or two today for lunch and snack. They are three points.

Now Donovan and I decided to watch Fairly Odd Parents. He wanted to eat some popcorn. I said ok. I was fine just sitting and watching television. However Donovan would not have it. I shared popcorn with him. That put me over my points by 1.

WW and the Summer

I am doing fine on WW. I am not gaining weight really, but not losing. I am happy to be under 150. I have decided to go back to Zumba. I realized that I miss an outlet for frustration, and Zumba is it. I am deciding on joining a club. I might join LA Fitness and make it my anniversary present.

I have also decided that by the time I go back to school for the fall I will have gotten myself to at least 130. If I do that I will definitely reward myself. I think with a day spa treatment.
