I have declared Wednesday’s as my day to confess all. This is the day that I will tell all who want to listen to my week’s weight loss journey. I will tell you the highs and lows. The good and the bad (or ugly). According to Jillian Michaels I should be eating 1200 per day and according to Weight Watchers I am allowed 26 points.

I felt my week was very good eating wise and exercise wise. But I did eat things I normally don’t eat. Like movie popcorn. I figured in that I ate 4 cups worth – which probably was a bit underestimated. Do you know how many calories is in one of those big popcorn tubs? Over 1,000. I also had a lot of wine this week. I already broke my wine resolution from last week. But it was my birthday and my birthday week. I had to celebrate.
I went to my weekly weigh in at Weight Watchers yesterday and had a one pound weight loss. I was happy with that. I am currently down 38 pounds. My weight at Weight Watchers was 163. I am so ready to not see a 160 or above ever again on a scale. I am looking forward to the 150’s. They are going to be my new friends.
At my Weight Watcher’s meeting last week they talked about adding more exercise into our daily routine. We have heard them all. Park at the farthest parking spot. Take stairs not the elevator. Blah blah blah. But I had never heard getting up and doing a 5 minute workout after working for 1 hour. Which I did try to do. But I found myself just meandering around my studio. Someone also suggested while watching TV, do an activity during the commercials. I thought that was a great idea. And what better show to do it than the first night of The Biggest Loser. And I rocked those commercials. I did crunches, planks and lifted weights. I was envisioning Jillian, Bob and Dulvette yelling at me. “You can do it Lisa!” And I did do it.
So this week my goal is to get up and do something physical every hour and during just one TV show work out during the commercials. This is going to be a great week!
