Hope everyone had a great Halloween last night! How did everyone do with sticking to their plan and staying away from the candy? I definitely could have done better but all in all I wasn't that bad. Luckily, the Aero Car and Smarties were all only one point a piece and I did cut down on my supper to compensate for the treats so . Not too bad. I'm going to work it off at the gym today. This week has been so hectic and I have to admit (even though I don't want to) that I have been failing miserably at the Exercise Challenge with Kelly and Sarah. I've only gotten to the gym ONCE this week! Monday Scott didn't have his gym clothes so we skipped the gym (I know, I Should have went, afterall I did have MY clothes!)
We went on Tuesday and I tried out a new machine! The Stair master. I did it for about 12 mins and wow! That thing really works out your legs. I'm going to try it out tonight for a little longer and then hit up the elliptical again. What a great workout. AND my new Weight Watchers Magazine came in the mail yesterday so I can read that while I'm doing the elliptical, it looks like it has tons of recipes in it for the Holidays! Can't wait!
Last night was a bit of a mad dash since Scott had a meeting until 5:00 and we wanted to get home for the Trick or Treaters. All in all we got about 40 kids. They were so adorable! We would have had candy leftover if Scott and I didn't help ourselves throughout the night! I had about 5 mini chocolate bars but to my defense, I did pick the lowest point ones! We bought a variety pack that had Smarties, Aero, Coffee Crisp and KitKat. The last two were 2 points each so I gave away all of those ones first! Then I had 2 boxes of smarties, 1 Aero and 1 Coffee Crisp. So about 5 points in all which wasn't too bad and I had 6 points leftover after supper just for this reason so I'd say I broke even throughout the night. Although I still feel like I cheated and I can feel a a gain coming for tomorrow morning. Last weekend was NOT good and I can still feel the effects of it in the way my clothes are fitting. Ugh.
This weekend is it. I'm NOT going over my flex points even if it kills me. We have a pretty low key weekend planned. A little Christmas shopping on Friday night and then our Goddaughter's 2nd birthday on Saturday (NO cake for me!) Saturday night we are going skating and Sunday we are going to the local Flea Market and just spending the rest of the day catching up on things around the house and relaxing. 35 flex points is MORE than enough for this weekend! I can do this! It's been an absolute roller coaster when it comes to these flex points and for the most part, I've been going WAY over. Not this weekend. I can so do this!
What are your weekend plans??
Update later in the day.....
I just went to give Blood on my lunch hour and apparently I can't do any physical exercise for at least 8 hours!!!! How frustrating is that? I REALLY wanted to hit up the gym after work! Grrr. Guess I'll be a Friday night gymer this week. I need to get in a least 1 more and then it's hours upon hours of raking this weekend to get our lawn in shape!
