Recommitted, Week 5

I didn’t work out as much this week so when I saw such a significant weight loss I was surprised!  I was feeling a little sick for a few days so I skipped my gym workouts on Wed, Fri & Sun so I could rest because I knew I didn’t want to miss any run workouts on Tues, Thurs or Sat.  By the weekend I was feeling better and only a little congested in the mornings and at night.  I really missed my gym sessions though so I’m happy to be feeling better.  

Week 5 {06.13.11-06.19.11}

Beginning Weight {05.16.11} = 150.2
Wk1 = 147.4
Wk2 = 147.2
Wk3 = 145.8
Wk4 = 143.8
Ending Weight {06.20.11} = 141.4
Wk3 Weight Loss = –2.4
Total Weight Lost = –8.8
*I’ve reached my first WW goal --- I’ve lost over 5% of my starting weight!  My next WW goal is to lose 10% of my starting weight {135.2 or less} --- and of course, like I said last week, I have a mini goal of getting to 140 or less by the end of June {12 days and 1.4lbs to go}. 

My daily allowance = 29 points
Weekly additional point allowance = 49 points

Monday ~ 25
Tuesday ~ 29
Wednesday ~ 26
Thursday ~ 29
Friday ~ 30
Saturday ~ 40
Sunday ~ 41

I earned 41 activity points and used 24 of them
I exercised 5 out of 7 days {for a total of 6 hrs, 46mins}
I didn’t use any of my weekly allowance points
{My program is set up to use activity points before using my weekly allowance points}

  • We went out on Friday night and I was able to enjoy a couple of beers while seeing a live band at a local sports bar.  And on Saturday my dad & step-mom came to town for Father’s Day weekend and we BBQ’d and I enjoyed a small glass of wine {4oz with some sparkling water added} and went out for FroYo for dessert.  All the local FroYo places around us always have at least one non-dairy sorbet and that’s what I always get which is lower in pts+ and I usually skip the toppings {although occasionally I do have some mini yogurt chips and some fresh fruit}.  On Sunday, after a morning round of Father’s Day golf, we went to Jamba Juice {I love that the Jamba Juice drinks are in the WW online database} and we BBQ’d again. 
  • I haven’t eaten out in 34 days!  Its so much easier to track the pts+ for food when you are preparing them at home.  I know this has contributed to my weight loss thus far because it works for me.  An added bonus is that I love to cook so prepping food & cooking at home is something I enjoy.  Especially when I know I can make yummy dinners like feta cheese stuffed turkey burgers on sandwich thins with ketchup, mustard, & spinach for only 11pts+ with a side of zucchini “fries” for 0pts+ {this was one of the BBQ’d meals we had this weekend}.  However, I really miss going out for sushi.  So I told the husband that I would like to reward myself if I reach my mini goal of 140lbs or less by July 1st with a dinner out for sushi --- I really hope I reach my goal because I’m very excited and already looking forward to it :)
  • Also, I’ve been enjoying a lot more seasonal fresh fruit lately {watermelon, cherries, nectarines, cantaloupe, strawberries, blueberries} and having these options in the house make it easy to grab a snack of 0pts+ fruit instead a processed snack higher in pts {plus, we don’t keep a lot of processed snack type food in the house so reaching for fruit instead is that much easier}.
