This week I lost again! 2.8 pounds!!
So 11.6 pounds total.
If you know Weight Watchers, this means I got a 10 pound ribbon this week!
This week: I added walking in the parking structure to my daily routine. I started walking in the structure on my lunch or breaks during the week while at work before we went to Disney world in November. I wanted to lose some weight for the trip and get back into the swing of walking. I had a number of shoe issues though, which included giving myself HUGE blisters and buying and returning 2 pairs of shoes. I finally just brought my old pair and killed them. I haven’t worn them since. I loved those shoes too!
Anyway, so I started walking. All this week I walked up the structure from the third floor to the sixth and then took the elevator down to 1 and walked back up to 3. Next week I think I may start at one and then walk up to six and then down to three or down further. I think last year I was up to walking all the way up and down it at least once. People walk inside the building but I get too warm and don’t like people to see me walking. Maybe I need to not care about that. Funny, that’s what bothers me.
I ate ok this week. Saturday I went out with my mom and two of my aunts. Dinner wasn’t the best eating and points wise, but I’m learning. I can see how going out may be a challenge. And Easter was ok too.
Overall the biggest thing I struggle with is still breakfast. I may need to steer away from traditional breakfast foods and go more towards like an egg salad sandwich on a thin sandwich round and a piece of fruit or the sandwich with yogurt and fruit. I did make steel cut oats on Sunday and ate them most of the week and I do really like Oat Bran with fruit. My favorite has been oat bran with cinnamon and canned (in 100% fruit juice) peaches. I think I may have wrote about that last week.
I don’t struggle with eating breakfast, I struggle with just the oatmeal being enough food to keep me until lunch or not feeling hungry again in an hour. So then I add an egg or something with protein and then I feel like it’s too much. I don’t know. Still a work in progress.
This week I will try to just stay focused on program and try new foods and food combos.
Till next time…
