I have decided to make my Friday blog a Reflection of what I think worked for me, or didn’t work for me that particular week.
If you are trying to lose weight, and you don’t currently journal or track your food and exercise, I highly recommend it! Tracking allows you to go back through your week and see what choices may have affected your results at the scale, whether a gain or a loss.
It’s funny how things work sometimes. I had great success at the scale this week and I was able to enjoy Pizza, Beer, Ribs, Starbucks, a Grilled Panini and some cinnamon sugar Pumpkin Muffins. Those were some of my favorite things I had this week, all in moderation. I focused on the power foods this week and never felt hungry.
I only got exercise in twice this week, so that wasn’t great, but I did lose 2 pounds, which got me back to 165, finally! I said I would be giddy when I hit 164 for the first time in YEARS, and hopefully next Friday will be major giddiness!
I made two new recipes, as I planned to do in last weeks “Reflection” post.
I made Pizza’s using Portabella Mushrooms as the crust. We loved them! I will make those again for sure!
I modified the Pumpkin Poppers and turned them from 3 PPV a piece to 1 PPV. Honestly, they were so good I had to give some away and freeze the rest.
That was my successful week in a nutshell!
Friday started off with a cloudy sky, a cool morning, windows open and coffee in bed with the dogs.
Then I headed to my meeting hoping I might see 164 something……….
Hey, I only missed it by four tenths! But this is my lowest yet and that is the first time that number to the far right has said -42! Yay!
The meeting was awesome, as always. My WW Leader started off the meeting by passing around a XLARGE ziplock bag with EIGHT pounds of fat in it! It was gross. And it is just plain CRAZY how heavy EIGHT pounds is! I mean I’m thinking….”That’s the extra weight on my butt and thighs!”
Once we all came out of our coma from shock, the meeting continued.
