Day 6: Accelerate
Honesty is the best policy, right? I can't tell you how badly I wanted to lie and tell you that everything I did and ate yesterday was perfect. It wasn't. Confession: I had a slice of zucchini bread. Don't ask my why I can't JUST SAY NO to the baked goods. Social gatherings are killing me. I am seriously reevaluating my schedule and going to try and do less. I can't worry about other people, I have to stay focused and keep my eye on the prize. Right, Jordan?
While I was disappointed that I did not stay right on plan and that I went over my weight watcher points by 5 I am still proud of my accomplishments. Compared to what I would of ate at a social gathering in the past, I did great! I also earned 40 activity points this week and have not used any of my flex points. This does not get me off the hook though. I didn't not drink enough water yesterday and I didn't fit in any exercise. Today I am vowing to 45 minutes on the treadmill to burn off my zucchini bread. I am not going to get too upset. I am just going to go eat my egg and smoothie and do good today. Tomorrow I have a weigh in and I want to see 4-5 pounds lost! I am officially 100% on plan with the 17 day plan...NOW!
Also..last night I tried to recreate an image, too bad I didn't have someone snap a picture. About 5 years ago I got down to 182 pounds and thought I was looking pretty good. I have a picture of me in a tank top and weight pants and I had it posted on my fridge as a goal photo. I thought I looked great at that time. Well, last night I put the exact same outfit on, put my make up on and tried to even do my hair similar to that photo (it is shorter now though). The shirt fit great and my pants were super baggy. I showed the pic to a few people and they all agreed that I looked skinnier now. I remember thinking that if I ever just got to that goal, I would be looking pretty good. Guess it's time to find a new picture :)
