Baby Steps, RIGHT?!?!

Today was a good day all in all. I'm at 28 points, 4 over, but that's OK, thanks to flex. (now flex "weighs in" at 28) I did however get in all of my water plus about 5 oz extra, hey baby steps. We did not get to the gym again, Errrr. Maybe tomorrow... I did take a sneak peak at the scales earlier and it says I'm down 3 pounds (and that was after dinner)!!!! Can't wait for Sunday for the official weigh-in.

I wanted to thank Jodi over at for the great chicken recipe. We tried it over the weekend and loved it. We'll be adding it to our menu often. Also, to Roni over at for the chocolate almond cupcake recipe, they are to die for and only 2 points each, what a treat (I had 2 for breakfast this morning)!!

Hope you all are having a great week, hang in there it's almost Friday, YAY!!!!

Until tomorrow...

Good Days!!

The last 2 days have not been so bad. Monday I met 2 of my 3 goals. I drank my 32 oz of water and only ate my allotted points. Tuesday, well I drank my water and I was only 2 points over - and for those of you who know Weight Watchers know that there are 34 flex points a week, so now I'm down to 32 flex points. I've been making good meal time decisions and not having to snack as much, which for me is a BIG deal (I'm the Queen of Snacks). My one weakness is breakfast... WW suggest that you eat something high in fiber, have you ever tried to eat the cereals that are high in fiber, they taste like hay and I just can't do it. My favorite "big girl" cereal is Fruity Cheerios, they are not too bad, but they are not very filling, thus causing the need for a morning snack...

I'll check in tomorrow and maybe we'll find our way to the gym tomorrow, Jay didn't get off work today until 7pm and that is too late to head to the gym. See you all tomorrow!

Goals - Week 1

Well, here we go...

My goals for week 1 are:
  • to drink at least 32oz. of water a day (I know that is only 1/2 of what I should drink, but this will be a HUGE step)
  • to only eat my allowed amount of points a day (24)
  • to exercise 3 times this week (I'd like this to consist of: 1 mile on the treadmill, 10 minutes on the bike and a few weights - time permitting)
  • to lose 1-2 pounds

Wish me luck!! I'll check in daily to update my progress and I think Sunday will be my "weigh in days", there is a reason. We always go out to dinner on Sunday nights with our Sunday School class and we usually eat Mexican (ever tried to refrain from cheese dip when everybody else is eating it?!?). So, as an incentive if I meet my weekly goals by Sunday, cheese dip will be my reward. For those of you who don't know I'm easily bribed and work better/more diligently when there is a reward! (Keep that in mind).

A New Beginning

Welcome me to the world of blogging... I'm primarily starting this blog as a way to hold myself accountable for my current diet plan. I think if I put my goals in writing and have some of you encourage me, I can do it. I currently am at an all time high with my weight and would like to lose a total of 30 pounds. However, I do not want to just focus on losing the 30 pounds, I want to focus on getting healthy and in shape (an hour glass would be nice). My husband and I would like to start a family, sooner than later, but first I'd like to "condition" my body to be able to endure pregnancy. I'm currently on the Weight Watchers program and think I'll set up weekly goals for weight loss, but will post daily or ever other day my eating and exercise habits/goals. So, bear with me as I ease into the world of blogging and weight lose.
