Well, it’s tomorrow. And, how did I do? I managed to stick to my diet and workout plan. Yay me! And I’m not being sarcastic when I say that this time. See how I did below:
Weigh-in day is Monday. I try to weight under the same circumstances every time, i.e., no/similar clothes, same time, pre-breakfast. Here are my starting stats:
Weight: 171.6 lbs
Arms: 12 in.
Chest: 41 in.
Waist: 35 in.
Hips: 43.5 in.
Thighs: 25 in.
I spent my 23 Weight Watchers points and I ended up dipping into my weekly flex stash by 3 points. I really wanted to avoid doing that so early in the week but I mistakenly got 0% vanilla blended yogurt at the store which has a points value, instead of 0% plain which is a free food. I tried to compensate for those unexpected points but I wasn’t able to. I’m not going to lie, I was hungry. Starving! Like, talking myself out of throwing my hands up in defeat, hungry. But, I made it and I feel good about that.
The day started out rough. My son woke up an hour and a half early, forcing me to stop halfway through working out to get him up. And, I’ll admit it, I was scared that so early in the day my plans were already toast. I was afraid I would lack time and/or motivation to make a second attempt at working out. Thankfully, my fear of reporting that I had failed on the very first day won over any of my other concerns and I put everything aside during his first nap to workout. I even managed a thirty minute walk with my husband and son after dinner.
Overall I am proud of myself today. I’m trying not to be skeptical because today was so hard. I keep telling myself that anyone who succeeds at anything starts off with one good day and takes it from there. Although I struggled, a lot, to stay on track, I did stay on track and that is an accomplishment I am going to try not to downplay.
I know my success today was, in large part, due to the fact that I have someone to be accountable to now. So, thanks for that! Please don’t forget to tell me how your day went! Remember, if you need me to, I am holding you accountable as well.
I’ll check back in with you on Monday to give a status report on my progress. In the meantime, if you missed my original post yesterday, you can find it here:
