Woof! Since joining Weight Watchers this is my first time with two gains in a row. This is definitely not the direction I would like to be moving in.

I'll just be honest with you guys, I've still be slacking on tracking my food and really trying to meal plan for the week ahead. The Weight Watchers app reminds me to track but when I'm eating crap and a lot of it it's much easier to avoid tracking it. Tracking my food does it's job, it makes me think about what I'm eating and evaluate my choices. But when I'm off the program it's not fun to track that to have proof that I've messed up. But I know on days when I don't track or only track a meal or two that I went off the program and quit caring. I've been tracking the last few days even if my food choices haven't been the best, so we'll see where that gets me. Next week will be better once I actually have some good food to eat in my fridge.

Today I attended my second Body Pump class of the week. I've been going to Body Pump once a week for a while and have thought about adding a second class but never pulled the trigger on it. Without someone to go with it was always easier to not go to a second class because no one was expecting me. It's an excuse for sure, I'll admit it. And I'll even admit that the only reason I went twice this week is because I had people to go with me each time. The plan is for it to continue to be that way so I'm going to keep on this twice a week Pump regimen. And even if one of my Pump buddies can't I'm going to do my best to go it alone. No reason not to, right?

Group fitness classes seem to be my jam because since trying Pump for the first time I've been the most consistent than I've ever been with workouts. So even though I've slipped up on the monthly goals again this month one thing I want to do before the end of the month is try a RPM class. And I'm going to have to overcome my fear of trying new things alone because neither of my Pump buddies are interested in a cycling class. Wish me luck and that I survive the first one!

Until next time friends!


  1. I hear Body Pump is great! My friend teaches it and loves it. I've never been, but I'm more into weight-training and running at my own pace. I would love to give BP a try sometime though. Keep you head up; you're doing an awesome job in your journey!

  2. HANG IN THERE!!! :) Your journey is strengthening you!

  3. I'm jealous you have a body pump class at your disposal! That's one I don't have here, but would love to take! You definitely should try the RPM class -- next week!! If you tell the instructor you're new, I guarantee they will make it their mission to help you enjoy the class (and get a lot out of it!). On the tracking front, think about it this way: you can "cheat" yourself by not logging on the app, but the scale won't play those games. Do you want to end the week being pissed at the scale, when you KNOW you didn't track honestly? You've seen that you can lose when you do track, so what's stopping you? I also recently remembered (because I was hungry all the time) that I don't have to be hungry all the time if I, oh, eat 0PP fruits and vegetables when I'm hungry (duh, Carolyn). So I've been buying more carrots and cucumbers and bananas and strawberries to snack on because no points!!

  4. There are some times when you'll have a couple of gains in a row then the next time it'll be obliterated. You'll be great next week!

  5. Tracking is important, and yet so hard to face sometimes. You got this :)

  6. I hear you on the tracking... that's definitely something I need to be more consistent on. I'm slacking in that department as well. YOU GOT THIS! :)
