Happy Dance! Happy Dance!
This week I weighed in at 157.2 pounds. THAT, friends, is the absolute lowest Post Offspring weight I’ve ever weighed. Understand how significant this is: my oldest child is now in college; the baby will turn fourteen in a few weeks.
So how’d I do this week?
PRIORITY #1 “Do-It” : Get a smaller sized dress. This is still only sort of done. I went back to the website to actually buy that red dress from last week, and it’s only available in a size 2. Who the heck wears a size 2? Really? So I’m on a quest for a red dress. I DID disassemble a size 14 suit and put it back together as a size 10 this week. I praise my Mother’s Name every time I tackle a project like this, eternally grateful that she taught me how to sew.
DO-IT: I’m a Weight Watchers fan, so I’ll stick to my points, 29 daily points 49 weeklies. This week I stayed at my daily allowance, and only ate extra points if I earned them with activity.
DO-IT: Earn 50 activity points a week. Got this! Exercised six days – biking, Zumba and a quick pickup game of basketball with The Architect. He kicked my tail, because I couldn’t get a ball in the basket to save my life. I earned 53 activity points this week.
DO-IT: Consistency. Consistent I was this week. No binges, no slacking on exercise. I enjoyed some extra points on Friday, but exercised them off within 48 hours.
DO-IT: Hydrate. Done!
DO-IT: Read a book. I purchased Refuse to Regain, but it was only available through Amazon in the Kindle format. I haven’t made time yet to hack the file and convert it so I can read it on the nook. I suppose I could read it on the iPad, but I’d have to pry it away from the husband and offspring.
DO-IT: One update post a week. Okay…I’m giving myself credit for posting at the Christmas Dress Countdown site.
DO-IT: Link up to your weekly updates. Done.
DO-IT: Be supportive. Okay – I could so seriously overdo this, but I have a job that takes priority. And a family that includes offspring who need help with homework. And I teach an engineering course at the university.
