First Week on Weight Watchers

Today was my very first weigh-in w/ Weight Watcher and I'm down 2.8.

That's right:  -2.8.

And I'm very, very pleased.

I remember trying out the new pointsplus program when they first rolled it out on a 2 week free trial and I hated it.  But something must have changed because I didn't mind this at all.  I was right, it was a nice change of pace from my normal calorie counting.  And new things are always motivating!

I'm excited for what this next week brings.  I know I won't always have a big loss like that (I'm pretty sure my weight is still elevated from being sick and the Vegas binge) but I'm pretty positive I'll have another loss which is all I want.

There are a few things I would like to do a tiny bit better this week:
For Exercise:
I want to get just a little more exercise in.  Just a little because I did great last week.  I worked out 5 out of 7 days and I'm pleased with all my workouts.  The ONLY thing I want to do is utilize my weekends better.  I want to add more workout time to my weekend workouts because I don't feel like I'm taking advantage of all the time I have.  I will be adding one strength training routine on each day in addition to my cardio.  So one upper and one lower over the course of the weekend.  I usually do a strength routine over the weekend but I'd like to make it a habit to do one on BOTH days.

I did great.  I know you can't see it but I'm patting myself on the back.  Maybe, if anything, I'll make sure to drink more water on the weekends.  Monday thru Friday I'm great at drinking my water not so much on Saturday and Sunday.

Continue to track EVERYTHING.  There was ONE instance where I wasn't going to count a couple of chips I had eaten.  I even purposefully sat on the couch next to my computer and thought "yeah, I'm not going to count those".  And then I realized that was stupid, so I did.  Cause you know, it only works if you do what you're supposed to.

I will be working out after work tonight so I will take my measurements and post them as soon as I can.

And in completely unrelated news:

The shuttle Endeavor flew over Los Angeles today.  We all stood on the roof of our office building waiting for it and it didn't disappoint.  It was quite simply, amazing.

Today's menu:
B:  Breakfast Rosti (which I will post about later on how to make because it is awesome) + egg + Coffee/Creamer
L:  Southwestern Salad + Vinaigrette (light) + Pepper Tomato Soup + Apple
D:  Perhaps a garden salad with something delicious.  I haven't figured it out yet.
