Monday nights are my nights to go and weigh in at Weight Watchers. This past week, there are lots of things I “rocked!”
I rocked the treadmill. I got a new Polar Heart Rate monitor for my birthday and I have LOVED keeping track of my heart rate using the monitor. I also love it because it sets quite a difficult goal for me and if I don’t work out every day, I most likely won’t reach the goal. So, I made up my mind on July 5, last Tuesday, that I was going to have a great week. So, every day, I planned my day around my workout, not my workout around my day. If I knew I wasn’t going to be able to work out at night, I would work out in the morning. If I knew I was tutoring all morning, I would plan my afternoon to include my workout. I made it a priority and it worked. I also got in any extra activity I could like mowing the lawn twice last week. As far as workouts went, I rocked it!
I rocked my eating. I tracked everything I ate, as soon as I ate it. I made sure if I was out of Weight Watchers Points for the day, I didn’t eat anything else for the rest of the night. I did not allow myself to eat any of my extra points (you get extra points if you exercise and you get extra weekly points you can use whenever you like through the week) except for one day. There was one night when I chose to make tater tots for a side for dinner and I had to use my 4 extra workout points. That is it though, no other day did I eat anything other than my daily 30 points plus.
I rocked my attitude. I decided, “I can do this and I am worth it!” I can give myself one good week. I can give myself one perfect week. I am going to give Weight Watchers a chance to prove itself to me (being stagnant the last few months had me doubting the new Weight Watchers Plus plan a little bit!). Well, it proved it and I rocked it!
So, because I rocked all of those things, I ROCKED THE SCALE! Tonight at Weight Watchers, I knew I had done well. I got on that scale and when Kyle told me I had lost 4.4, I wanted to scream and shout, “I’m back!”
I worked for every ounce of that 4.4 pounds I lost. Through lots of sweat, lots of planning, lots of time spent running, I rocked it!
How did you do this past week? Did you rock anything? If so, please share! If not, will you rock it this week? Make a commitment now that tomorrow is a new day, make some goals for yourself, and ROCK IT! I believe in you and you can do it!
I will leave you with a saying that my Weight Watcher leader always says, “If you don’t do it, you won’t lose it. If you kinda do it, you will kinda lose it. If you really do it, you will really lose it!” This week, I really did it and I really lost! In fact, I rocked it!
