HOLY COW I lost a pound! Thank heavens! And now that I am back on program the ball should just keep on going. :-)

Having taken four days off program in the last week, I am not expecting good things from today's weigh in. But tomorrow is a new day!

HOLY SHIT, Y'ALL!! 158.4 pounds!!!!! I thought for sure I was going to see a gain this week and instead I lost 3.2 pounds!! WOOT!!! Not only am I out of the 160s, I am 1.4 pounds away from 20 pounds!!! I cannot tell you how absolutely thrilled I am! :-D

While I was cooking dinner last night, I got in 30 mins on the Active 2. After dinner I did 45 minutes on the elliptical machine. I had been thinking I'd do another 30 mins Active 2 after the elliptical, but I was beat. I will be getting in a 40 mins Wii workout this evening though! Even with the workouts and tracking like a madwoman, I'm pretty sure there will be a gain on the scale tomorrow. Going to be a pretty severe kick to the ego, but I am going to try to just stay on program and work harder for the next weigh in.

Today I am trying like crazy to get everything back on the right path. I'm eating on program, but didn't get up early enough to exercise this morning. Was already planning to get in another hour of Active 2 and now I'm thinking I might do that 30 mins of elliptical I was supposed to do this morning later as well.
I can't tell you how disgusted I am with myself. I know that people make mistakes and this thing is a lifelong journey. I cannot expect to be perfect all the time. But I have been a weight loss idiot the last two weeks! I have GOT to get 100% back on program and stay there! The plan is easiest at the beginning. That is when you are losing the most. If I can't keep myself on plan now, I'm going to be ridiculous later. I have to make this work. No matter how on-program I am Monday-Friday, if I'm going to fall off the wagon every weekend, I am going nowhere fast. :(

My youngest niece (who is in band) has a Christmas concert tonight that I promised to attend. So I woke up this morning and dragged myself upstairs. I am really not a morning exerciser. That was AWFUL! But I did it. 45 minutes of moderate activity kicked off the day today. I would love to get in a session of Active 2 this evening, but it will depend on time. It would have to be after the concert, but before 9pm (don't want to get heart rate up right before bed, or I'll never get to sleep). Since the concert doesn't even start until 7, that seems really unlikely to happen, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Otherwise, I will have to make up the workout tomorrow.
The weekend is looming straight ahead. Going to try to log into the blog Saturday and Sunday to stay accountable to The Program. And as counter-intuitive as it may seem, I'm also going to try to spend some time on the computer this weekend. Surfing Fitness pins on Pinterest seems to help me stay motivated.
Small victory this morning that I'm not sure I believe: Liar scale at home this morning said I weight 160.5. That was post-workout but before breakfast and like I said - that scale is evil and likes to screw with me. Guess we'll see what the WW scale says next Wednesday!

Yesterday's Active 2 workout had a lot of shoulder and back exercises in it, so my shoulders are a little achy today. I loosened the shoe laces on my workout shoes around the middle of my foot and toes and that, happily, seems to be helping my toes not hurt so much. Planning to buy new shoes soon, but there are several big-ticket items on my horizon that are taking precedence over shoes. :-( I will work with what I have for now!

Let's have a great week of healthy eating and exercise!

Yesterday, I got in 50 minutes on the Active 2. I was POOPED!! Both workouts were lower body, so I was totally worried that my legs would be too sore to run today. I'm feeling pretty good though, so I'm going to commit to at least 2 miles. Shooting for 4.
WW released the PointsPlus 2012 program today. Knocked me down from 29 PP a day to 26. Going to do my best to stay within that amount and my Weeklies. I have yet to touch an Activity Point and my goal is to never eat those. That's where the weight loss happens!
Okay everyone - let's get out there and have a great weekend!

Today's Goals: stairs and water, finish out the "week" on the Active 2. Pretty sure that is going to kick my butt! I want to get the week completed though so I can get in a run tomorrow! My Shmoo (a very, very good friend) and I are supposed to run a marathon together next September! NEED TO TRAIN!!! Right now, a 3 mile run kicks my hiney. 26.2 miles might kill me!
