Weight Watcher results: Week 12
So I am so sick of the number 205.6. I feel like it is haunting me. I weighed about 25 times this week, it didn't matter when I weighed...day or night, before or after I pee, before or after I poo (I know a little TMI...but so frustrating), with or without clothes...the damn scale always said 205.6! So I have for sure hit a plateau but I can guarantee you that I am going to bust it!
I have set very specific goals for this week:
1) Stay within my points every day
2) Earn at least 15 cardio activity points this week (3points x 5 days)
3) Drink 64oz of water each day
4) Incorporate some weight training activity points this week (2 points x 3 days)
I get woman's day magazine (well actually I just get hand-me-downs from my grandma) but last month there was a good little starter workout for all your problem areas. There are 10 different exercises and all of them can be done with just dumbbells or they are resistance exercises (using your own body weight). Doing all the exercises together create a short 15-20 minute routine. I want to try and do this at least 3 times this week.
I am shooting for a minimum 3 pound loss based on these goals!
OK, so the good news is that last night was our anniversary and we went out to dinner. I had bought a dress several years ago similar to one of my favorite other dresses. When I bought it, it didn't fit and I have never worn it. Last night, just for the heck of it, I tried it on and WALLAA..it zipped right up. While I may not be losing pounds on the scale every week, I do know that my lifestyle is changing and I am making progress. I know that I need to lose pounds on the scale and I am going to but it still feels good to know that this is paying off.
I went to the store and purchased stuff for my fridge at work and to get me stocked up..so I should be safe there. I'll need some encouragement this week so give me a call or send me an email. Next week's blog post 202!
