I was not in town Saturday but did weigh in at the Weight Watchers meeting location a couple of days early before heading to Portland.
With five days of progress I was happy to be down a full pound on Thursday. That brings the total loss to:
It was so exciting to pass that 25 pound mark. I asked them to hold off on the award until I’m back to my regular meeting. I want to celebrate with my leader and the friends I’ve made at that meeting.
My exercise schedule changed so I can follow the Avon Walk training program. Since I was at a conference Friday I only made it to one pilates class and my activity points for the week were 25.
By the way, I miss the Tuesday/Thursday pilates instructor. She is much more nurturing than the one I’m with now.
The challenge was eating right and exercising during the conference. Since my hotel was 1/2 mile away from the conference that helped with activity. I was able to walk 13 1/2 miles over the three days.
Eating right was another story. Yes, it was a vegan conference so all food ingested was plant-based but there was a lot of higher calorie vegan treats than I normally eat. But I didn’t overeat so I don’t think there was any damage with all the extra walking.
The big culprit is salt. I’m salt sensitive so my scale was up 3 pounds yesterday morning. If it’s all gone by Saturday, my theory will be confirmed!
The rest of the week should be easy and once I hit the grocery store tonight we’ll be on track. How did your week towards great health go?
