Well here we are! As promised I am here with an update on how my first full week of being on the Weight Watcher’s Points Plus system has been.
All week I’ve been tracking my food and making sure I’m active at least four days a week so I can keep my allowance points for my getaway to the Cape this weekend and I’ve been staying on track for the most part. However, on Wednesday I was just sort of bummed out, really slumming around and fell off the wagon towards the end of the day but I got right back on track soon after and have been kicking butt again.
What do I think of system? It is simple and easy to follow, points in and points out. It can be a bit nerve racking to have to keep track of everything and making sure you stay within your points but I’ve found that being active and getting those active points really gives you some wiggle room to snack or have a beer or two.
I won’t lie, I am going to keep track of what goes in and out this weekend but if I slip or have too many beers I’m not going to worry about it. I think that this plan can be a sustainable way of losing weight because you aren’t cutting out carbs or fat or only eating 1,000 calories a day. Weight Watchers encourages you to eat good foods such as fruits and veggies because they have zero points (besides potatoes, corn, and a few others).
I feel good, I am sleeping better, and I am actually enjoying this process. I tried on bathing suits the other day and could see the difference in my waist then what it was a month ago. I’ve been making good strides in the health department and I am confident that joining Weight Watchers was a step in the right direction.
I’m sitting here at work eating my chicken noodle soup and devising a work out plan for my session tonight at the gym.
I see all of these women jacked and lean by lifting weights. I’ve read Bee Rules of Lifting for Women but I’ve yet to actually grasp the lifting routines. I get that you use heavier weights and less reps but how many sets do I do? I still want to do cardio so do I do that also?
Exercise has always been a mind rattling concept that I always have to have a plan for.
This chicken noodle soup is really good though, and the weather is perfect so I guess I can’t really complain right? I’ve been trying to look on the bright side more often and just accept my flaws and accept the things I can’t change. Like the serenity prayer says “Accept the things I cannot change and the wisdom to know the difference.” I think that’s how it goes…
If any female bloggers read this and lift I’d really appreciate some insight! And for those of you just perusing through WordPress, you’re awesome and keep being you.
Hey all! Sorry I’ve been MIA for these past few weeks. I’ve been dealing with more than I can ever imagine. I’ve been really taking some personal time for myself to figure out what I need to do to make sure that I stay on this happy and positive track that I’ve been on.
Therapy with Nicole has been spectacular, my mindset for school has been on point and my relationships with my girlfriend, friends and family have been exceptional.
So, I’m here today asking my loving followers and possible new comers what their opinion is on this…what would you think if I did vlog posts about my weight loss and mental journey? I’ve been seeing how vlogging can really show transformation not only on the outside but inside as well.
I’m taking the necessary steps slowly but surely, to live a healthy and happy life and I want to share it all with you! I’m still going to writing my poetry and venting via text posts but I was wondering if anyone would like to see vlogs?
Hope all is well, I’m so happy Fall is finally coming as well! xox
