Where does the time go?
I weighed in on Friday and I was only 2 lbs away from being back to my pre-Christmas weight. I know, you're probably thinking..."You're STILL carrying around Christmas weight?!?!" But I am. It's true. Last year it was so much easier to take it off but for some reason it seems to be sticking around this year. I'm not too worried about it though. I know it's slowly coming off. Hopefully I've learned my lesson and next year I won't be so food crazed. I think my body likes this weight zone because it doesn't seem very anxious to move around any. I'm still toying with the idea of doing SFL for a few weeks to shed off a few pounds and get down to the lowest I've ever been, just to see if it's possible. I think my biggest hesitation is that I'm actually happy where I am now and I don't want to go through all that restriction. I really do wish I could lose another 10 lbs and I really really want to. But giving up those flex points is going to be a tough one. I'll have to pick a 2 week period that I have NO plans with friends, no dates, no outings basically. This plan (at least the first 2 clensing weeks) does not allow for much flexibility. I'm actually making it sound a lot worse that it really is. I know if I do it and stick with it, than the weight will fly off pretty quick. Choices, choices. I guess I'm just getting anxious about these last few pounds, I have been playing around with them since May of last year! That seems like forever! Actually in May of last year I was actually smaller than I am now (due to the SFL plan). Hmmm what do you ladies think?
My weekend was good. Dinner and a movie date with another couple on Friday. Went to Swiss Chalet. Ordered the Santa Fe Chicken Sandwich (9pts) and a baked potato (5 pts w/sour cream) with diet pepsi. I also had 1 perogie and half of a spring roll (5 pts) High point supper but that's why I saved up my flex points!
Saturday we had my 2 year old neiece for the afternoon. SO much fun! We took her shopping and to the pet store. Saturday night was homemade pizza night (which I royally screwed up!) and stayed in with a movie. I made the dough but doubled it up for a super thick crust and it turned out all doughy. Not good. Next time we'll stick with the single!
Went to a Superbowl party on Sunday night and had 5 points left. I had one very small piece of spinach and tomato thin crust pizza and a 1/2 of a cookie. There was food everwhere!!! It would have been so easy to just pig out! I did pretty good though, drank about 6 glasses of water and chewed about 3 pieces of gum to keep the food out of my mouth! haha.
Today is Yoga at lunch and Cardio after work. I didn't make it to the gym yesterday so I'm palying catch up. I did squeeze in 40 mins of Tae Bo on Sunday though so I figure I'm doing ok. Tomorrow I'm hitting the gym at lunch for 40 mins cardio since we are heading to the in laws for a turkey dinner tomorrow night. Mmm Turkey. My plan is to fill up on veggies. Tomorrow night Scott and I are going to play Volley ball. Nothing competitive, just a recreational team. Should be fun and it's more active than sitting at home on the couch!
How is everyone doing this week?
