I really wanted to post this sooner but I haven't had a free moment all week. As usual my life is crazy but I made my weight loss a priority in my schedule this week.
I weighed in on Wednesday night at my Weight Watchers meeting an lost two pounds since last week. Of course I was hoping for 7 but that was kind of ridiculous. I really can't complain. I lost two pounds and didn't feel hungry at all the whole week. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying it was completely easy. I had to make the right choices while on the run and eating fast food and I had to do a lot of prep work so that I had healthy choices and meals at all times during the week. The hardest part was the preparation not the controlling what and how much I ate.
So for me right now I need to keep working hard to fit all of this preparation and planning into my crazy busy schedule. I work three nights a week coaching basketball and teaching gymnastics and then every Saturday for several hours while the kids have their basketball games. These are my hard nights and days because if I don't plan properly myself and my family will not have a healthy meal to eat.
This week I planned out healthy meals for each night. I also bought salad mix twice this week. I ate mine with apples, fat free feta cheese and light ranch. I also snacked on wheat thin sticks, string cheese, watermelon (my favorite!) and grape salad. I have to say that the week flew by and before I new it I lost two pounds.
This week was definitely a great week. I am now at 188 1/4 lbs. I still have a long way to go but I am excited to be going in the right direction. I hope that I lose the same if not more this week.
I am starting to think about the spring and buying an Easter dress and getting family pictures taken. I would love to be down another 20 pounds before then. In order for this to happen I need to get back into exercising. It has been a while since I have really done this. I know what I need to do I just need to make myself do it. Finding the time is always the problem.
Later today I want to come up with a reasonable exercise plan for myself. Something that I can really stick to. My work schedule is going to be changing soon and hopefully it will make things easier for me. I will be coaching Floor Hockey because our basketball session is almost over. I am totally excited for floor hockey. I have never played it before but I am so excited to learn a new sport. It is a nice way to get some exercise in.
I hope all of you had a great week. Losing weight is not easy but we can do it. We just need to find a way to stay motivated and find some time for ourselves.
