Well for the record... 1 pound of fat loss or gained is as a result of over eating or creating a deficient of 3,500 calories. Ahh simple math... In theory! Well this week at Weight Watchers I lost 1 pound. That technically is a good thing but dang nam it I wanted more! A lady lost 5 pounds last week and she looks like she is at goal already so what the heck?!? Well as soon as I heard it I was like "ehh" and the WW check in lady said with a smile "Well it is a LOSS!" I said "Ehhh" and got off the scale. I instantly ran through in my mind what could have gone wrong I mean I worked out and did pretty good at least I was tracking again. But when I thought about what I had...Sunday the all you can eat brunch where I basically had all my daily points plus a good bit of my weekly 49...I also had fried chicken wings, butter pop corn at work that I have no clue how many points a bag is...chocolate candy...and 2 milk shakes...Ummm yeah I'mma take my 1 pound and run lol
So this week we got to pull it together. I did not get a chance to go grocery shopping but tomorrow I am going to hit the gym hard and then the produce market for some fruits & veggies. I already plan to have curry shrimp and some chicken dish. Planning is key in terms of food and exercise.
Sunday-Spin, Body Pump, Body Combat
Weds.-Body Pump & Kickboxing
This is the plan. Saturday we'll see what the scale says about my plan. I must say the new WW journal is great and gives room for your plan for the week, level of hunger, goals for the week, and a great new section anticipated obstacles & solutions.
My personal trainer is off this week so that was what I listed as a possible obstacle and the possible solution was to take extra classes. Another issue was snacking my solution is to plan treats and not just go with the urge.
So I did my 30 minutes today after a longgggg day and I am patting myself on back for that! I just did some walking, squats, upper and lower body weights while watching a movie!
Well I am reposting this poem yet again this week! Boy did I need to read it!

My Weight Watchers leader shared this with our class when some of us were upset that we ONLY lost 1 pound... 1 pound may not seem like a lot but in 1 year thats 52 pounds gone! For some of us that would surpass our weight loss goal so be encouraged 1 pound a week is a GREAT thing!
