This week was actually a great week for me. I stayed on track almost every single day and I even had a day where I was on the road all day and still stayed within my points. I am really proud of myself for that because normally when I’m out of town I will stop to go out to eat and go over my points, but this time I made it a challenge to find places to eat that had items lower in points and it worked.
So I’m feeling very positive about tomorrow’s weigh in and I know that I will have a loss. It’s a good feeling because last week I chose not to weigh in because I knew it would be a large gain after being on vacation, but now I know that I am back on my losing streak. I want to continue this as much as I can until the holidays. This next week will be a bit challenging because first of all, I won’t be able to go to the gym every day because my mother-in-law is on vacation and I don’t have anyone to watch my kids except for my husband and he works. So there will be a few days that I will go after he gets off work, but tomorrow I have my WW Workshop so I won’t have time to work out and on Thursday we have a birthday party to attend so I likely won’t get to go to the gym. And Friday we are heading up to Minnesota for the weekend so I won’t be near my gym, although I believe my brother-in-law has a treadmill so I might be able to get in a good work out at least one or two days this weekend.
I still have to plan out all of my food this week. I know we will be eating out on Thursday but I plan to limit my portions and that should make a difference. Also, when we are away for the weekend I am going to challenge myself to be more mindful of where we stop to eat and the choices I make. Just because there are a lot of unhealthy options, doesn’t mean that I have to order them and stuff myself. So this week will be a good challenge of mindfulness and making the right choices.
