3rd Mystery Weigh In

Well it's Wednesday which means Weight Watcher night. My favorite night of the week!

Weighed in tonight. Feeling hormonal, ravenous and puffy which sucks. I felt super thin earlier this week and woke up this morning feeling like a bloated tick. BLECH.

But that's OK because I'll take it off again, if I was up...not entirely sure...cause I'm still not weighing in...well, I am but I'm not looking at the number and I don't have access to my own Success Record so I will have a history of weigh in's for the month of January...I just won't know what January looks like until 2/3.

It's so weird. Surprisingly I'm not freaking out as much as I thought I was going to. I thought that a month without the scale was going to be a month of panicking and obsessing and freaking out about being in the dark but I'm actually handling it well.

Last week I felt like I was down and it would've been a nice pat on the back to hear that I actually was but I don't need the number on the scale to validate me. I felt good last week and THAT is what matters. The number does not.

This week I need to get it together with my meal and exercise planning. Having it all laid out makes me feel a lot better and makes it easier for me to stick to my plan. Trying to fly by the seat of my pants doesn't work for me and it's what I've been (unsuccessfully) doing for the past couple of weeks which has resulted in a lot of repeat dinners. Mostly frozen fish and a green veggie and possibly a starch either brown rice or a sweet potato. It's a decent dinner but eating that 3 or more times a week is really redundant and boring. And I haven't been working out the way I should be...I've been to tired, unmotivated and not feeling great but I know I'll start feeling better as soon as I start working out. Here's my plan:

Th: Working a double (8a-9p) no exercise; fish and veggie for supper
F: Doctors appointment at 8:30 a.m.; hit the gym afterwards for at least 30 mins cardio and weights if there is time before work. American Chop Suey for dinner
Sa: Work then holiday party. I'll eat a large salad with zero points veggies and spend no more than 3 SP on dressing prior to the party. At the party I'll do my best to make healthy choices but since I'll be full of salad that should be easier. LOTS of H2O :) I don't do booze or soda so I'll save points on the beverages.
Su: Piloxing class at 8:15; weights following Piloxing. Lemon garlic chicken served with whole wheat spaghetti
M: Morning spin class; pork chops with sweet potato

T: Evening spin class; breakfast for dinner (eggs, WW smoothie pancakes)
W: Rest day; sushi for dinner
Going to have a GREAT week this week! I am determined, I am strong, I am powerful and I can and will rise up and overcome! Watch out world!!

I Fell In Love Today

I fell in love today. It was the craziest feeling and one of the most amazing moments in my 29 years of life. I will never forget the day I stood in the Target dressing room looking at her. Admiring her. Seeing her strength and beauty despite her flaws...maybe even because of them. She was stunning. Absolutely radiant and proud. She was beautiful outside but not because she had a toned stomach, tanned flawless skin and a thigh gap; she was a different kind of beautiful. She was genuinely beautiful. I stood there staring at her and admiring her and I felt myself smiling; caught off guard by how I was feeling! Almost a little ashamed that she caught my admiring eye. But she didn't reject my admiration; instead she smiled back at me and before I knew it I was crying.

Time was suspended as I stood there weeping softly, hot tears rolling down my cheeks but I didn't feel embarrassed in her presence. I was overcome with emotion but shame was not one. With her standing there I I felt s…

Falling In Love Again

At Weight Watchers this week we were talking about being kind to yourself. I was asked when it was I decided to stop beating beating myself up and I started to cry the moment I said “it all started with a bikini”.
You can read that story here if you want to be caught up. 
I instantly felt my face flush as I realized I wasn’t going to be able to keep talking without tears rolling down my cheeks and I paused for a moment to look around the room. Was what I was about to do career suicide? What would my boss think if she walked into the meeting room and witnessed the leader having an emotional breakdown? 
My job as a leader is to facilitate a conversation among members, to create an environment where each and every person who walks through the door feels safe and supported and to ensure that each week members leave feeling like they got a figurative hug with a side of science.
It’s great to be warm and fuzzy and I love that Weight Watchers has moved past the days of a leader lecturing for 45 …

D10 5 Ways to Make Running Suck Less & How You Can Apply These Tips To Your WLJ Even If You Don't Run!

I was scrolling through Facebook yesterday and this article popped up on my news feed. I've been running for a while now and I figured it would probably have information I already knew because I know it all...obviously! But I clicked on it anyways, why not!?

And I'm so happy I did! I actually found it funny and I appreciated the reminders because even though I knew things before I read it I wasn't applying them to my runs...but as I read I realized how much this article was a metaphor for other aspects of my weight loss journey! I can apply these tips to more than running, and heres how:

1. Get your chin down! Keep your jaw relaxed. Being aware of tension in my body is super important for me and it's especially important I'm aware of tension in my jaw. I get stressed, I clench my teeth and what happens next? I'm STARVING. Why? Because I'm tense and anxious, I'm not actually in need of food! If I can catch the clench and get to the bottom of what's cau…
