I joined Weight Watchers last week. I go to the Tuesday night meeting, so I don’t know yet how well I did this last week, but it has been TOUGH!
First comes the eating….or I should say lack of! Actually you can eat a lot on WW but I can only eat so many veggies until I can’t stand it anymore! Plus, I needed to save all my “weekly points” for dinner last night. We went out with some friends and even though I ordered the chicken I COULD NOT turn down the homemade pasta that the restaurant makes. So, I saved all my points. Plus, in addition to the glass of wine, I had a Pepsi. That was the BEST Pepsi that I have had….or I just haven’t had one since last Tuesday. Obviously, I have a soda problem.
Day One (Wednesday) was okay, but Thursday was awful. It didn’t help that I was away in the morning and spent it STARVING, because I didn’t prepare and bring anything to snack on. I did the 30 day Shred on Wednesday and felt just like you see on the beginning weeks of The Biggest Loser. I wanted to throw up and every muscle in my body hurt. But, Jillian kept convincing me NOT to quit. I was exhausted that whole day! I woke up on Thursday morning sore in every crevice of my body. I decided to rest during the day and try The Shred again after supper. After the first circuit I was in so bad of pain that I stopped and just got on the treadmill. I’ve been doing the treadmill since…..
I just think I need to get in a little better shape before I attempt The Shred again. I could barely make it through the jumping jacks and doing it two days in a row killed my elbow. I can see how it is an awesome workout, though!
I’ve been trying to make things from my usual menu a little differently. I made a good whole wheat pizza crust, that was pretty comparable to a regular crust. I topped it with spinach, chicken, red pepper, and mushrooms and a little alfredo sauce. It was only 11 points for 1/2 of a pizza, which was pretty filling.
So, I have 2 more days until I weigh in on Tuesday evening. I really hope that I have a decent number, so I don’t give up. This is so much harder than I imagine in my mind. I feel like all I think about is food…..
Off to do my time on the treadmill!
