Weight Watchers Week 11

So after all the good food we ate (pizza twice, mexican twice, ice cream, burgers, barbecue…ahem…booze…) and not one official workout on the books for our whole vacation, this is what I have to show for it…

Weight Watchers Week 11

 

Eh, not too shabby! I would have been satisfied to maintain, so I will take this tiny loss. I’m not sure what your philosophy is when it comes to vacation, but this was a long overdue trip and my priority was to enjoy myself, my family and relax. I did track my food over half the time and we walked a LOT while we were out and about (made me wish I had a Fitbit!). But we are home and I’m ready to hit it hard with tracking, choosing whole, nutritious foods, and consistent workouts. Also, since February 1st, (beginning of WW) I’m down a total of 4.75 inches. Yes! I also tried on a medium t-shirt and it fit! Like not awkwardly fit, but fit-fit. Those non-scale victories are the best! I’ve also noticed I take more selfies. Ha! Also, it was so warm this weekend when I took this, I was sitting out to get some sun. And now it may snow tomorrow! Wah!

I bought the Weight Watchers Plan and Track this week so I could have a paper tracker. Thanks to a discount for being a regular attender to my meeting I got it for $0.95! I tracked in a similar paper tracker when I used Weight Watchers before, and there is just something about writing it down with pen and paper that helps me stay accountable. I was a little annoyed that it was bigger than the old one, but I like that it now has a calendar for the week, grocery list and meal planning section! My little organizational freak heart is rejoicing!

My Workout Plan for this Week:

Wednesday: Strength Workout

Thursday: Running Workout

Friday: Strength Workout

Saturday: Running Workout

Sunday: Off

Monday: Strength Workout

I’m back to running again. I feel like I go through spurts when I run and run and then build up to my 5K mileage and then stop. Just stop. For a couple weeks and then I pick it back up again and go back through the same process again. Which is stupid. So I need to follow through and actually build up to a 5K and then COMPLETE it! I’m going to use this program.  I’m planning on doing the K5K over Memorial Day Weekend like I did two years ago. This week I’m also going to be doing the Beginner Strength Workout from Nerd Fitness. I just found the site and my inner nerd loves it!

Welp, that’s all for now, folks! Hope you have a great day!

What goals are you working on? How do you like to track your progress? 

What is your favorite healthy and quick lunch food? (Lunch is so hard for me to plan for!)

  1. Yay for a teeny loss after a vacation! I always try to gain only a pound or two since I can drop that pretty easily.

    I’ve been loving leftovers on top of a salad – so I’ll heat up veggies and meat from the previous night and then throw it all on top of lettuce, mushrooms, and cukes. I usually top with salsa, but occasionally I’ll use salad dressing.

    Keep up the good work!

  2. Lunch is totally my least favourite meal of the day. Lately I’ve been buying couscous salad from Costco and adding in some shredded chicken. It’s probably not a perfect option, but I don’t think it’s awful, either.

    1. I should probably get a Costco membership….there seem to be so many yummy things there and buying in bulk would mean less trips to the grocery store which would definitely make me happy!

    1. There is something reassuring about writing things down. I swear I remember better when I put things on pen and paper.

  3. I always say your clothes are your biggest critic. 🙂 I use my fitness pal to track everything.

    1. I love their database. Literally every food ever is in there! WW could take a lesson and it’s a paid app. 😛

    1. Ugh. I don’t know. When you figure it out let me know. I have a pan of brownies staring at me today and it’s killing me!
