Weigh In Wednesday

It's that time again!

I am tracking my food and exercise, getting myself back in the habit of paying attention to what I eat. I am trying very hard to stop snacking in the evening. A selection of decaf herbal teas in my pantry is helping with that, as is my knitting.

So, here are my stats:

Last Weigh in Wednesday (in July...) 160.6
Last Week's Weight 160.0
Today's Weight 159.4
Loss 0.6

So, a hair over half a pound. It isn't great, but at least it is going down. I was derailed one day this week when I was perfectly on track, and then got invited to a dip party. Yes, I sampled. Yes, I probably overdid it a bit with the artichoke dip, and I KNOW I overdid it with the chili dip. BUT, I did not buy anything but seasoning mix for my lowfat buttermilk mashed potatoes and some sauce for chicken breasts, so that is something! I know better than to keep cheeseball mix in our house.

My two goals this week are:
  1. Reach for water first before snacks.
  2. EXERCISE!!!!
I have such a hard time making time for exercise. I have exercise-induced asthma which is an all too easy excuse to fall back on when I am feeling lazy. I need to stop making excuses and just get off my bum and do something.

  3. Mmmmmmmm, cheeeeeeesebaaaalll! Yeah, that's dangerous around here, too!! Good job on the loss and good luck with reaching your goals for the week!! I need to make some definite goals for once too, so that I have something to aim for!

  4. A dip party sounds evil. Evil and wonderful.

    Great job on your loss!
