I’m going to mark this goal as “complete”. In following Weight Watchers, and exercising regularly, I’m not bringing unhealthy food into my house, and my kids have to eat healthy as a natural consequence. I’m also very adamant to avoid sugar, reading all food labels before I buy them in the grocery store. I don’t ever want to see my son having 7 cavities at once EVER again!!!
angelava's Life List
1. work out every day for at least an hour, whether it be on my cross-trainer, briskly walking during my lunch hours at work, and/or weight-lifting in the evenings according to the schedule I've devised.
2. start Weight Watchers on Wednesday, June 15th, and lose 50 lbs by next June 15th.
This past week since I’ve been on Weight Watchers, I’ve been trying to aim to get 4 activity points/day for a total of 28 activity points/week. I did pretty well in that I got about 21 or 22 activity points in. This week I want to keep the momentum going in continually following the weight-lifting schedule that I have devised. I want to try to do extra cardio where I can too. Today I’m going to the gym and going to work out on the X-Trainer for a total of 8 activity points. Yesterday, I got 5 activity points of weight-lifting in, so I’m doing well. I’m feeling really good about myself too that I’m doing this. I’m sore everywhere, but my mind feels great!
This past Wednesday, June 22nd, I went to my second weekly meeting at Weight Watchers, and I was down 1 lb, so now I’m 199.4. I’ll have to admit that I was a little disappointed because I worked so hard all week in watching what I ate, as well as regularly exercising, so I thought I would be down at least 2 lbs. Oh well, I have to give myself credit where credit is due. I’m still 10 lbs less than I was last September (209.8 lbs), and I checked the previous WW log I had, and I’m currently at the lowest weight I achieved on that log. That means if I’m down next week, I’ll be the lowest I’ve been on WW since September 2004. I was also doing some heavy-duty weight lifting this past week so I may have gained some muscle mass, which may also explain the loss of only 1 lb. I have to keep up this positive motion I’m on…
