This morning at WI, I was down 2.4 lbs! Yeah, I'm really happy about that. I hadn't showed a 2 lb. loss in a week since April. That's a long time. I've been losing consistently and steadily since then, so I can't really complain. I am now 0.8 lbs. away from my lowest WW weight. I'll be surpassing that next week - I can just feel it! This week will be a great one, I can feel that too!
I had my 2nd spinach/banana/berry smoothie today. I loved it. I have a WW smoothie every single day. It's a requirement on WW to get in 2 servings of milk everyday, and that's how I do it. There are days when I don't add fruit to my smoothie, but for the most part, let's say 5 out of 7 days, I add my berries to them, no doubt. My nails have gotten a lot stronger since I've been doing that. Any smoothie mix with calcium & Vitamin D will do the trick, I think. Just make sure you add a cup of low fat or skim milk to it. And of course, any fruit/veggie combo you'd like.
Let's talk about the workout today. I had to split it up in two today. I started with 25 minutes on the inclined treadmill, then I did The Firm Super Charged Sculpting with Pam Cauthen Meriwether. Pam is really scary skinny in this DVD. I know I say that whenever I do any of her workouts, but I can't help it. She's probably a size negative 2, if that even exists. In older Firm DVDs, like the mansion workouts, she's got a little more meat on her, and she still looks skinny, but not scary. Oh wells.
I burned 616 calories, but I had to stop the DVD before the ab section. I know, I know - but I returned to it later in the day. I had to warm up on my own by jogging in place for about 10 minutes, and I was actually sweating by the time I hit the ab section. I burned 128 calories with that little mini workout, bringing my total calorie burn for the day at 744 calories. I am more than good with that number. More than good.
After my WW meeting, I really wanted Wendy's for lunch. So I decided to be smart about it. I've come too far to get the bacon triple cheeseburger - those days are just long gone. Instead, I got a regular cheeseburger, small fries, and small Coke. I know I overindulged, but I had the points for it. I used all my Activity Points, and some of my Weeklies, and I didn't even finish the Coke. I dumped about half of it because I just didn't want it anymore. I guzzled 32 oz. of water after my meal, and I didn't feel disgustingly full. I didn't feel like I was sick or I was gonna hurl, I just felt satisfied. My whole lunch came to 14 points, which I would never do normally, but I had prepared for it. I'm good. I'm in control.
It feels good to be in control, it really does. I know I'm not perfect, that there may be days where I just absolutely lose control, but this journey is not about perfection. It's about being, it's about making good choices, and it's about rolling with the punches. I'm confident now in a way I never have been before. I'm confident that this year will see me get closer to goal. I'm confident that in the next 6 weeks, I'll meet my current mini goal - ONE-derland. I can feel it. It's gonna happen people, I just know it will. :)
Tomorrow is my DOR (Day of Rest), and I'm planning on hitting BJ's in the morning to pick up somethings, and then grilling in the afternoon. Today was a great day, I got some things done. I got a haircut because I really needed one, then an eyebrow wax, then Wendy's, then home to just unwind. I only went over my points by 7, which I don't consider terrible by any means, and I got in all of my daily requirements. I got in a great workout, too, so I really can't complain if the scale shows that I'm up a little tomorrow. I'm expecting it, but I won't freak out.
I'm gonna wrap this one up now, because I think I've rambled on long enough. Thanks so much for reading. And let's all make good choices.
