Here we go again..

Last week I decided to commit to going to WW meetings every two weeks to weigh in, instead of only once a month. I think i need the accountability of weighing in more often. I weighed in on saturday, and i was up 0.5 lbs from 2 months before. I am hoping that my new plan will help that number go down, instead of up! Trying a new positive outlook on this journey! :)

I was supposed to go visit family out of state this weekend, but my plans got cancelled. Sadly, I am a bit grateful because I know that those are the types of situations that get me in trouble. Next week is spring break, and lots of my friends are coming home. I know this is going to be a tough week because everyone always waants to party! For me, drinking alcohol= the need for junk food. Trying to control it as best as I can, without having to sacrifice time with my friends.
P.s.- Had a date with an awesome guy. This is helping with my positive attitude this week :):):):D

New Start #2?

So I have decided to go back to the old WW points system. I think the new program is actually making me GAIN weight. Maybe too many calories for me? I am going back to the very basics. Does anyone have an opinion on the new program vs. the old?

I didnt go to weigh in this weekend because I couldnt bear to face the scale with a gain, AGAIN. Hopefully, in the next few weeks I can get things under control. I know its bad to miss a weigh in because of this, but I knew it would ruin my whole weekend.

Its so strange because I know exactly what my triggers are, yet I have a hard time dodging them. I dont want to have to give up certain things in my life, and I dont think my social life should have to suffer because I am trying to lose weight. I am trying to find my self-control again. When I am in control, I can still be in these situations and stay on track. I did this before and I know I can do it again...

Small Accomplishments!

Its been a while since I have written a post. Since my last post I have started to really follow the new WW program. I takes some serious getting used to. It feels like im eating way too many calories. Hopefully I will see some results from mixing it up a bit.

I made it to the gym 5 times this week! Pretty psyched about that. I took off today and friday. I am really trying to step it up because i've got 10 lbs to lose by March 29th. I have a wedding to go to, and I am going to see people that I only see every few months. I want to look smokin'! haha.

School starts this week. Hopefully I can get back on some sort of schedule. I seem to do the worst on WW when I am not following a set day to day schedule. When I am doing the same thing every day, and not taking weekends off, I do my best and actually see results. But how often is that possible? Not very. But thats life for ya!

Going to try to make it to spin class 2x a week with 2 or 3 other workouts in there until the wedding. Spin class makes me feel so good because I love to sweat!!! I have to weigh in this week, too. Hopefully I will have a good one!

Happy Sunday,
Off to watch the Golden Globes!

A fresh start!

I weighed-in today, and got the result i expected. I am not letting it bring me down though!

I got all my new materials to start the PointsPlus program, and sooo excited! WOOT. I got my new calculator, and i even used it in the grocery store today. FUN! :) I am really excited that fruit is free. I like bananas before a workout, but they dont really fill me up so I didnt want to use the points. Now I can have a banana before every workout! Hopefully, this will encourage me to eat alot more fruit now.

P.s.- I made my spaghetti squash last night. SO weird. I tried it with sauce and parmesan cheese. I could eat it, but I dont think I would make it again. I had a hard time getting past the texture, which is weird because I love squash. Maybe it was just the concept I didnt like?

Thts all for now! MWAH<3

Cookie dough? Oh, no!

I just ate two spoonfuls of cookie dough right from the fridge. Now i have a belly ache. I deserved it 100% (the belly ache that is). Why do I do STUPID crap like that? I even regret it during, but I just keep on shoving calories and sugar and fat in there! I love this time of year, but its torture!

On a more positive note, I went to spinning last night, and plan on going again tomorrow. Gym tonight as well. I hate getting up and going to the gym, but I love the feeling of being wiped out after a hard workout. As someone once said, no one ever regrets working out, but we do regret not working out.

Also, making spaghetti squash for dinner! This is a first for me. Im prettttyy excited!
Weigh-in tomorrow. Something I am definitely dreading. I am going to be WAY up. EEK! I AM excited to learn about the new program though. I hope this is going to be the little shove I need to get back on track. I am kind of bored with the old WW program, so something fresh and new will be exciting.

Off to check on my squash!!!

Oh boy, Its that time of year again...

Its that time of year again. You know, where a little bit of panic sets in? As we speak, there are chocolate chip cookies baking in the oven, and more on the table in front of me. My Christmas baking/stuffing my face gets started a little earlier than most because my family has a Christmas party the week before. I am desperately trying to lose a few lbs, because weigh-in is next week and as I said before, I am WAY up. Keep on keepin' on I suppose.

On a POSITIVE :) note. I went to SPIN CLASS at my new gym last night! It was FANTASTIC and I left there feeling like a million bucks. Dont get me wrong, it was TOUGH. Luckily I took my mom along with, and she and I are slightly competitive. I couldnt let her show me up! I was drenched in sweat, and feeling as fabulous as ever. I am not sore today, but my tushy hurts from the seat. Ha. CANT WAIT TO GET BACK THERE!!!!!!!! :)

..I smell smoke. BYE!

I need a kick in the tush.

I am in serious need of some motivation here people!
I started tracking again today. I am already dreading weigh-in next week. I was WAY up last time, and that was BEFORE my trip to GA. I am trying to stay on plan during the weekends, but its so hard. There is always someone who wants to go out to eat, or to the bar, etc. Also, my work schedule is SABOTAGING ME! I get home at 3am and im STARVING. For those of you who dont know, I am a bartender. I have to eat before work, and then after. When I get home, I am FAMISHED. Any suggestions?????

I missed my spin class tonight because of a stupid exam today. Hopefully, I will make it tomorrow.
Thats all for now. MWAH :)
