A few years ago, I joined Weight Watchers and became a lifetime member after reaching my goal weight. Eventually, I gained weight back and I stopped going to Weight Watchers. I've known for a while that I needed to get myself together and focus on my health, but it's such a mind over matter deal and my mind just hasn't been "on it". Until lately...
I have decided that I have got to take better care of me. I've got to eat healthier and make better choices. I've got to exercise. I've got to lose weight.
I'm not sure I believe my scale, but it says I have lost 7 pounds! Woohoo! I've made better food choices and I've been running. I'm documenting it all on my Instagram account, soundsofsummer1. Here are some meals I've had lately:
Top left: 2 eggs & fruit - 4 WW points
Top right: Flatbread bagel, 1 egg, banana with cinnamon - 4 WW points
Bottom left: 1/2 piece of chicken, cabbage, broccoli salad with dressing - 4 WW points
Bottom right: Turkey sandwich on flatbread, tomato, pickle, lots of fruit - 6 WW points
All of those are really low in points and I've had other meals that are higher in points, but overall I'm adding lots of fruit and vegetables, as they are almost all 0 points. I'm not officially back on Weight Watchers, but I hope to join again soon.
I've also been running in my neighborhood. Right now, I'm running/jogging/walking two miles. I'm trying to do it a few times a week. Last night I ran my fastest mile and it was my fasted overall time for two miles! In less than a week, I have decreased my total time by 7 minutes and 34 seconds! I also had a random cat run with me for a while! Haha!
I've got a 5K coming up at the end of the month - The Color Run - and I cannot wait! They are SO much fun!
