Last night was my weekly Weight Watchers meeting. I was skeptical going into the meeting due to my big 100 pound weight loss last week. I had a good week but with celebration dinners and a baby shower, I was unsure if I had made all the right choices. I did run and sweat right before my meeting so I was optimistic.
When I stepped on the scale, I was happy to hear I had lost 0.4. Hey…I lost a stick of butter. I will take it!
Have I mentioned that my Weight Watchers leader, Jacynta, rocks?!?! She was recently chosen as leader of the year for Weight Watchers and was also awarded a Diamond Leader award. See, I told you she rocks!
One of our receptionists, Jennifer, was also awarded receptionist of the year. WOW!!!!
I guess my center really rocks too! I am one lucky member to be at such an awesome location! Congratulations you two! I always knew you were the best!
If you attend Weight Watchers meetings, check out this weeks Weight Watchers Weekly so you can see my leader in it! Did I mention she is awesome?!?
This week’s meeting was about what you are doing while watching television. This is not a big issue for me. I generally DVR shows and while watching them, I will be on the treadmill. One show, Dance Moms, Kristen got me hooked on last summer when we were visiting her parents. I will ONLY watch that show if I am working out. If I want to watch it badly enough, I have to workout in order to watch it.
Last summer, I caught up on ALL the Grey’s Anatomy from the year before while I was working out. My husband jokingly said he had never seen someone cry on a treadmill before until he saw me working out while watching Grey’s (I thought Kallie and her baby were going to die).
My biggest tip is to workout while watching television. Your workouts will go by faster(you will be interested in the show and it will take your mind off your workout); You will workout longer (you will want to watch the end of the show); and you might just work out more often.
Another good thing about working out while watching TV is you are not eating. If you are a big snacker while TV watching, try working out. It is much harder to eat, walk, and watch TV all at the same time.
What do you like to do while watching TV? Are you a big snacker? If so, how do you tame those snacking tendencies? Do you workout while watching TV? If so, what is your favorite show to watch?
