A Great Week!

July 24, 2015

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!

    Thanks Pam! Loving the new floor color so much!

    I think writing things down helps SO much. It just gets a little more absorbed into the brain. 🙂

    Thanks for your kind words and appreciation of the blog. Means a lot to me.

    Have a great week!

  2. Late in commenting…but wanted to tell you that your refinished floors are gorgeous! All your food has looked yummy lately (even the eggs and sweet potatoes!). Bought a new tracker at WW yesterday. Will WRITE DOWN goals, food, thoughts for the week…I believe that will help me too. Thanks so much for tips, advice, inspiration. Good luck at race today! — Pam
