I'm down 2 more pounds at weigh-in yesterday. Makes me a happy girl! I've been moving around how I use my points lately and it really seems to be working. On Saturday, after I weigh-in, I have a somewhat "free day." Which basically means I allow myself the freedom to use as many of my brand new weekly points as I feel satisfied by. I generally use about 3/4th of them on that one day. Then the rest of the week, I "make up for it" by staying on point daily and accumulating enough activity points to compensate for the weeklies I used. So, by the time weigh-in comes around again, I've broke even on the "extra" points.
I know I've mentioned it already, but this coming week is going to be CRAZY busy for me. It is the week before summer break, week before a 10 day long vacation, week of 5-year-olds first ballet recital and graduation from pre-k, and 11-month-old's week-early 1st birthday party, plus today is the WW Walk-it Challenge and I will be walk/jogging with my WW team. It would be easy for me to say, "Oh just forget it, I'll eat on the go and see where it gets me." But, I happen to know that the only place it will get me is "gains"ville. So I have to pre-plan. I thought some of you might be interested in exactly how I do that. ...I use a spread sheet in Excel, this is the blank one I keep on file:
It's hard to see in the picture, but I also try to plan for what activity I'm going to get in for the day, though this section is what gets edited the most with how the weather behaves or how the kids are feeling during our time together, or if hubby isn't up to riding his bike home that day (we are a one car family by choice.) BUT- just because an activity gets changed, does NOT mean it gets cancelled unless there is some REALLY good reason...
So you see, even on busy weeks I'm able to pre-plan and stay on track. This has most definitely been a vital key to my success. And, like a said earlier, this is not written in stone, but at least there is a plan!
Walk-It Challenge 5K is today for my fellow Weight Watchers!! Hope everyone loves every step of it! :-) Have a GREAT week! <3
