My friend and I arrived at WW by 7:15. and my weigh in was as crappy as my eating was this week. Coinkydink? I think not. I was up 2.2 pounds, but relieved it wasn't more. I'd lost a total of 8.8 pounds during my first 2 weeks on the program, so now my loss is 6.6. Still okay, but I am recommitted to staying on plan and writing it all down.
I didn't mention that last week after I weighed in, I was almost home before I realized that the woman who weighed me didn't give me a tracker for the week, and I didn't have time to drive back to get one. Now this sounds like no big deal due to the fact that I have PAPER of all shapes and sizes in my house upon which I could have simulated a tracker, but for some reason I just couldn't get back into the tracking mode using a notebook. I'm not blaming HER for my sorry ass week, but it did contribute to me just sort of giving it up for the week. Today at my weigh in there were stacks of them at each weigh station, so I took a stack of my own so I can't claim that sorry excuse again. Today I'm back on track and tracking, and it feels GOOD! I was realizing this afternoon that I feel sort of "safe" and a little bit righteous when I'm writing it all down.
I have 2 goals for this week up to my next weigh in...track everything I eat, and stay on the program and within my points allotment. I want another big loss next Saturday - and by big, I mean NOT GAINING!
This afternoon hubby and I went and dug out the driveway of a friend who has been pretty ill and undergoing treatment for Hepatitis C. Her driveway is on a fairly steep hill, so we got a great workout shoveling snow and ice for about an hour. We got her down to all pavement which was so satisfying. She was grateful, and we had fun, so it was win win for all. Love that.
About an hour and a half ago I decided to take the dog for a brief walk, and made the DUMB mistake of wearing a pair of fleece lined fake Crocs. WTF was I thinking?? We started down a path that this morning was snow covered but after being trampled all day by kids going to sled, it was more packed and thus much more slick and slippery. About 1/4 way down, my R foot just skated ahead of me and I ended up falling HARD, with my right knee tightly flexed and right ankle twisted! UGH - I rolled right over and unflexed my knee, which thankfully didn't seem injured. It took me a couple minutes to get myself back to standing between the slick surface, my idiotic shoes and the dog nosing me as though trying to help me up. What a scene. I
Upon returning home, I took a pre-emptive Ibuprofen strike and iced the knee and ankle. Now they feel normal, so hopefully that's the end of that, but I have a feeling that between the shoveling earlier and the fall, I may be sore tomorrow. Good excuse to lay low, watch a movie and read my book!
Forgot to mention I did a lot of cooking this morning, some for the week, and some for dinner tonight. After WW I hit the produce place and the grocery, and came home to slice, dice, chop and cook. We're having stuffed peppers for dinner, which I can smell as they cook now. I plan to do some more food prep for the week tomorrow, because as I mentioned before, I AM GOING TO STAY ON PLAN ALL WEEK. Mark my word.
