Well- last week I had been up .8 and THIS week- down 3.0 for a total of 33 lbs since 1st wk of May.
Had my 5k prior to WI this morning and though it may seem obsessive- I conducted a scale "experiment" of what I weighed prior to eating and drinking some water before 5k and what I weighed after I drank / ate and did the 5k. Completely scientific of course
In any case, it was a whole difference of .2 on my scale- I weighed .2 less after the 5k. So the whole thing of me thinking I might weigh more because of the eating or water retention with the race- didn't matter at all. Which just goes to show-- the micromanaging of the scale does nothing but make you nuts for no reason It all evens out like we said the other day.
My 5k was good this morning though it felt "short" especially since my time was almost 10 minutes faster than it had been on my last 5k a few weeks ago!
I talked to other runners and some said that the course actually was .2 or .3 shorter than a "real" 5k. This one wasn't a certified course. Still- 10 minutes? They also said- that this course was a little bit easier course than what I had done a few weeks ago- that was a road one and this was an easier trail one with less hills. They said it was entirely possible that it was my TRUE time. I thought I had missed a loop somewhere and was feeling like I had inadvertently cheated. Nope, I actually did improve my time some because I've been running longer distances. Who knew?
What a day for you! I'm real excited to hear about your 5K. My dd did her first one a few months ago, did another one a few weeks later, and is now planning to do the Turkey Trot locally on Thanksgiving. I don't see a 5K in my future but I'll be letting dd know about yours, it will encourage her.

Thanks! Yay for your daughter!!! This was my 2nd 5k since I started WW back in May and I'll be doing a Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving too! You could always walk it if you wanted-- it seems like every 5k I do- there are walkers. Regardless- your dd is kicking butt- I'll be thinking of you both when I do my Turkey Trot!

I haven't done my run/walk in probably 10 days because I've been sick with an upper respiratory thing. I just realized how miserable I am and I swear its because of the lack of exercise. I really think the time to myself was really healthy for my mental state. I can not wait to go for a walk tomorrow, even if its just a small one!

Take it easy! I've had this weird bug, and it just hangs ON in the lungs. My body is getting SO tired of not exercising!

Nice thing, though, is realizing that I don't really need to eat the activity points when I'm not being active. I just don't miss them when I'm not earning them.

Disney fruit is worth it! Sure, it doesn't feel like a treat,but you will feel better for eating them! (says the person who ate half a Disneyland brownie and stopped because it was NOT worth it...not good enough, and I'm thinking of having some strawberries now.)

THANKS for your help!
Do you eat your weekly and/or activity points? If not, why not experiment for a few weeks to see if you can?

Well my BBQ went well yesterday. Tons of food and I tried to make some substitutions here and there to make things a little more WW friendly. I did well with the food. I didn't hardly eat anything at all. That sounds great, but I am more than sure I drank all my points and then some.

It was a good time, but now I need to try to focus and get back on track. I feel like I am just going through the motions. I'm staying in my points, but instead doing it the fruits and veggies as much as I should I'm just not. My water drinking has fallen off too. I don't know why exactly either. It is the oddest feeling that I've hit a plateau but I have been consistently losing each week. IDK.

Has anyone else felt like this? What did you do to get through it?

I went for my walk/run. 10 mins of walking, then 10 mins of walk/run (50/10 seconds) and 5 min cool down. I feel so much better, like instant relief. I have to make sure I keep making time for myself now that I'm well(almost!).

I'm glad that getting out and moving made you feel better. Those bugs can be hard to shake, but typically the better physical shape you're in, the better you can beat the bug.

Here's to a new week everyone! Let's make it a good one.

Worked really hard this week to get in more fruits and veggies.

Got to do lots of research this weekend for better dinner recipes......I struggle with dinner. Gonna access the etools but do any of you use other sites for healthly receipts?

Thanks
Congrats to you It is a great feeling to get back on track after vacation.

I wanted to mention skinnytaste.com. My family has LOVED 99% of the recipes (the odd one ar two that werent major hits werent bad but just not as fabulous as the others) I really cant say enough about the site, the pp values are there for you the recipes are easy and the pictures are beautiful and make you want to cook. You really cant go wrong on there!

THis idea is way too cute! I love it!

I went out and had my lite beer last nite!!! Walked about 7 miles around NYC and at WI this morning had a 1.2 loss. I will take it. (Honestly thought I would be down at least 2 since I was on plan, tracked every morsel and worked out every day. A loss is a loss)

have a wonderful week everybody!

Back on track after 2 weeks off! I was on the Fantasy and came back from vacation on Sunday the 23rd. Then, got sick with a nasty cold that is still there. So I didn't have much appetite but I didn't eat the best food either. So now, I am back to tracking my food today, and my weigh-in is Wednesday. I know I have gained, but I know I will lose it in the next 2 weeks or so.

I'm getting back to exercise too. So, I had a great vacation, but the last week wasn't so great, and I am glad to be back on track!

Congrats on everyone for their losses, and have a good week!

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend and were able to stay on track. We had beautiful weather for our Breast Cancer walk yesterday! I'm really glad I went.

Here's to another successful week on plan for all of us!

Another good morning to everyone. Another crazy busy week last week for me. Jess, glad you had nice weather over the weekend, we had rain. Cold rain which we sat out in for hours at a band competition on Saturday. After hours of sitting in rain it started thundering and lightening out and they canceled before our school was able to play . Just hoping I don't get sick again. Hope everyone has a wonderful successful week .
