Wednesday 1/6-First Mystery Weigh In

Alright folks. Weighed in last night, Wednesday 1/6/16 and at this moment I have no idea whether I was up or down. I told the receptionist who weighed me in that I didn't want to know, good or bad! I explained to her that my sister and I were swapping books...I told her way to much. I'm talkative enough but when I get nervous I get chatty and I just kept going. She's not even a regular receptionist!! She was filling in so she's probably like "omg girl...just shut up!" She was SO nice though, totally patient and she didn't tell me how much I weighed and I didn't peek as she wrote it in my Success Record.

That was SO hard, btw!! I've asked the receptionist not to tell me on more than one occasion but I can usually peek as they write down the number. I've become an expert at reading the numbers upside down and then quickly calculating the total. But not last night!! Nope, last night I got on the scale and closed my eyes.

Don't judge me.

I then briskly walked to my seat, Success Record in hand and thrust it at my sister. I feared holding it one second longer would lead to me peaking at it. Which I really wanted to do. But also, didn't really want to do...

My week wasn't great but it wasn't terrible either. I tracked everything I ate but I ate things I don't normally eat, like Chinese food. It was New Years!! It's a tradition around here to eat Chinese food on New Years! I didn't binge on it though which was amazing. I ate 2 chicken fingers, 2 crab rangoon, 1 beef teryaki and about 1/2 cup (I couldn't measure for sure, we were at a restaurant) of fried rice. I also ate all of the broccoli my brother-in-law didn't want, LOL!! His dish came with broccoli and I love broccoli...lmfao! I considered it a successful dinner. Typically I eat Chinese food to the point of discomfort and I've never had broccoli with my Chinese dinner...so yeah, it was indulgent and pointy but I practiced tremendous self control. And I didn't eat any of the leftovers we brought home either!

I stayed within my DPT most days but I did go over a few on Tuesday and for some reason I was RAVENOUS yesterday. Awesome, right? Eat a crap ton BEFORE I weigh in!! But, I ate well. Fruits, veggies, lean protein...just more than I normally eat in a day. I did end up over my points but when you're starving you've gotta eat!

So food-I'll say I'm 90% happy with food for the week.

But exercise was another story. I barely worked out. I wasn't feeling good, in fact I had to leave work early on Monday which I NEVER do!! I've called out twice in close to a year and always with at least a few hours notice and only in the case of absolute emergency...I've never left early due to being sick. I felt guilty as all heck but it was necessary. I spent a lot of time watching TV this week. There was so much Netflix. Which I suppose I needed...I'm still feeling a little off but because I had so much downtime this past week my sleep schedule is a little messed up. I've been staying up late and sleeping in which I don't normally do. Now I've got to get back on my normal sleep schedule which is challenging and means I'll be extra tired for a day or 2 but I've got to push through so I can get back on track. Unfortunately for me tired usually equals increased hunger. I'm going to be prepared for the hungry horrors to strike though and fill up on lots of veggies. I LOVE fruit but I find that veggies tend to be more satisfying and even though fruit is zero SmartPoints I do worry that eating an excessive amount is going to be detrimental. I mean...I could honestly eat like 5 bananas a day...but cucumbers, celery, baby carrots; those things I can eat in moderation :)

Anyways...I got totally sidetracked there...

Nutshell:

Workouts were not good this week.
Food was alright-could've been better, could've been worse.

How do I feel?
I felt thin this week despite the fact that it wasn't a great week. My wife noticed that I looked thinner and I felt like I looked thinner so-yay! However, I'd guess that I was maybe up, probably less than a pound. Mid-week I was guessing I'd be down around 2 because I felt like I could see a change in the mirror...but then I got hungry and stopped working out and I was sick so I started to feel puffy and not so accomplished.

But, I'm feeling confident about next week! :) For now...;-)

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 …

Using Ripstix, lightly weighted drumsticks engineered specifically for exercising POUND transforms drumming into an incedibly effective way of working out." I have spent an incredible amount of time feeling lonely and excluded. My weight ostracized me.

I am brave enough to try new things and get wayyyy out of my comfort zone cause I know no matter what, I’ve got people who are going to catch me if I fall when I take a leap of faith. 
Pound Fitness is a physical manifestation of what WW is to me. It is connection, literally and figuratively. When I slam my Ripstix against the floor I’m getting low enough in my…
