Hi everyone! Miss me?? Yeah, I miss you guys too. 🙂
I haven’t really blogged at all this week. I’ve been trying to get into a rhythm with Weight Watchers and to get some exercise in there as well.
I thought that by joining Weight Watchers I’d be able to coast in and hit the ground running. But not so my friends! One of the major issues I have had since the beginning has reared it’s ugly head…the amount of food I have to eat!
For those of you unfamiliar with how Weight Watchers works, the fat, fibre, carb, and protein values of foods are converted into points. A person is allotted so many points to eat per day based on their weight, height, etc. In addition to those points, you also get an additional 49 points to use throughout the week. My daily points total is 49, plus my weekly additional 49 points…that’s a lot of food, yo! It should be noted that fruits and vegetables are zero points so even consuming those in mass quantities doesn’t help me get in all my points. Although the amount of points I have to eat will decrease as I lose weight, for now I have to figure out how to choke down all 49. I know, I know…I could have worse problems right?
The great thing that happened this week was the exercise portion. My brother is pushed me out on three walks this week. Monday we did 4 km, Friday we did 4 km, and this morning we did 6 km. Monday was hard, Friday was a little easier, and this morning was hard but I pushed hard to finish. On top of which, I had a great sense of accomplishment when I was done. After which I enjoyed a nice cool shower and a yummy breakfast.
So all in all, a pretty great week. We’ll see if the scale agrees with me on Wednesday evening. 🙂
