If you are in the path of the snow or thunderstorms and other crazy weather, may you be safe!! This afternoon and evening, we are supposed to get some heavy rain. I just hope and pray that is all we get.
I wanted to write about a few of the changes that I have started this week in my weight loss quest. Care to join me?
Last weekend, Kirk, Ian, and I went on a long walk around the neighborhood and that was fun. I am trying to work in more exercise so that is a start. Then over the last few days, I have taken short walks and have tried to be more active.
Also as I mentioned in yesterday’s post about cutting my rings, I am working on cutting out late night snacks that aren’t healthy. Yesterday evening, I had a big bowl of strawberries and a small scoop of light vanilla ice cream. It was delicious and low on points! The strawberries were no points at all!!
When I was a teenager I was allergic to chocolate so this was my favorite dessert treat. It was great to have it last night. I stayed on track and yet had some comfort food!
Speaking of points, I have started tracking my food again on Weight Watchers Online. I love that there are so many fruits and veggies that are no points. So I can eat salads either as their own meal or supplement them with something I really want.
As the commercials say, you can eat everything, just have to be careful about the portion size. This is something that I can do!! And, I am ready to do it!! It is time for my lifestyle change.
Tonight I have a date with my son. We are going to make dinner together — pigs in a blanket which he loves to help with, broccoli, and mashed potatoes. And, we will watch some episodes of Busytown Mysteries. Sounds like fun, don’t you think?
Since I have planned and tracked my day, I can enjoy this meal with him without stressing about it! Isn’t that cool? I sure think so.
I know that all weeks won’t be easy but taking the time to think about my food and exercising will make a difference. These are things I haven’t been doing for a while.
I wonder what new low-point food I will find this weekend. I look forward to finding out.
