Yesterday wrapped up the end of a really great Weight Watcher week! Short term goals and writing down my goals definitely proved to work for me this week.
Last Friday, I worked in the yard, and that was the first activity that I had done in about 10 days since not feeling so great. Saturday I got in a 2.5 mile walk. Sunday, no activity. Monday, I walked 6 miles. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, I went to Jazzercise. This morning, I am going to Yoga, which means that I am going to a Weight Watcher meeting later today than usual. Tomorrow, I am doing a 5K at the Kansas Speedway with a group of neighbors! I’m feeling really good about the activity that I got in this week, and my weekend activity plans.
I ate good this week, I got in lots of water, and I even passed on a beer offer two different days this week!
I had to change up my schedule a bit this week to get in the exercise that I had planned for myself. I talked about this a little bit in a post last week, but it makes such a difference for me to have my goals in writing. Knowing that I said that I would get in a certain amount of activity, forced me to go Jazzercise in the morning on the days when I had plans for the evening. If I didn’t have it in writing, I think I may have skipped the class altogether and taken a 30 minute walk instead, or maybe skipped exercise altogether.
I really like my Friday morning WW meeting and all of the people that are there, but for me to get my Yoga class in today, I need to go to the noon meeting today.
These are not huge changes in my schedule, and I realize that, but what I am pointing out is simply that writing my goals down makes me want to accomplish them more. In order for me to accomplish my goals, I need to make a few changes in my schedule that I might not have made otherwise.
Along with my activity goals, I really want to focus this week on my 26 Points a day with only eating 10 of those 49 Extra Weekly Points that I am allowed.
Tonight is my 30 Year Class Reunion, and I’m looking forward to seeing some faces that I haven’t seen in a long time, although I will say, I’ve seen a lot of these faces on Facebook, but in person will be much better!
I hope you all have a Happy and Healthy Weekend!
