weigh-in

“We are what we repeatedly do.
Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”

–Aristotle

before i went to sleep last night - i told myself, "i am okay with a gain or maintain tomorrow" and i really meant it... i knew i had over-indulged this past weekend and yet felt not one ounce of guilt for doing so because life is meant to be enjoyed... this is what makes WW such a great plan - you can have that light beer (not 5), or a piece of pizza (not ½ a pie), or chips & dip (not the whole bag) - as long as you count the points... so when i stepped on the scale, it rewarded me with a 1 pound loss - what can i say besides WHOO HOOO CARROTS... keeping track and being accountable has really hit home to me this time - i have been faced w/a lot of difficult situations but have learned to make better choices about food and that is key... and so is exercising - i can't stress that enough ladies so if you really want to see progress, you need to start moving! :o)

i thought practice was going to be canceled last night because of the rain but they had said in the beginning, "we run in rain but not thunder/lightning"... so i thought, either i go and they cancel OR i don't go and find out they still had practice (which would've made me mad)... so i went and we ran for 30 minutes and i really feel confident for saturday - the weather's looking good, it will be something i've been working hard for, and know i'll feel awesome once i cross that finish line... :o)

this morning, i read about yet another summer beer but this time by miller... it sounds pretty interesting - let me know if you've seen in or have tried it...

tonight i'm going out to dinner w/some girlfriends, we are going for mexican (my downfall!)... thank god its the begining of a new week even though i need all my flex points for saturday (brunch after the race)...
wish me luck!

happy hump day!

That's awesome! Congrats on the loss!!! I want to KISS the scale when it shows me a loss I don't deserve. :) Conversely, I want to throw it out the window when it doesn't show me a loss I do deserve. ;)

Wooo hooo on the loss, I bet you did deserve it too. And you are spot on about needing to add exercise with your diet... they go hand in hand..

congrats on the loss! woo hoo is right!!
mmm, Mexican sounds so yummy right now. I was craving avacado like you would not believe today. So i went and bought one. And ate the WHOLE thing. 9.5 points of snack, lol. But it was worth it. Like you said, thank god for a new week and a new set of flex points.
