10 random things

It seems like a it has been a long while since I have blogged.   Sorry, for the absence.  Because I don't really know what to blog about, I think I will post 10 random things...

1. I am down a total of 18.4 pounds.

2. I am not as diligent as I once was with tracking my food.  It is getting better.   I think I need to keep the WW site up at all times.  That is what worked for me in the past.

3. I love the Weight Watchers fudge bars.  (only 1 PPV)

4.   Even though, I am down 18.4 pounds/dress size, I still see myself at my highest weight.  I think it is time for a side by side picture to prove me wrong.

5.  I got in a lot of exercise this week end.  Saturday I took my youngest to the Children's museum.  Then we went shopping.  Sunday, we went to the beach and played at a park.  When we got home I went to the YMCA and logged some miles on the bike.  Today, I went to Zumba and took the kids to the zoo.  The walk to the zoo from my parking spot was somewhere between 15 and 20 minutes pulling a wagon.

6. I like reading so much more now that I got a nook.  I have a hard time reading traditional books.

7.  I have a hard time sitting through watching a movie at home.

8. I am looking forward to chaperoning by daughter's field trip on Wednesday.

9. I love to travel.  Lately, I have had an itch to go to London.

10. I am really torn with what to reward myself for losing 20 pounds...mani/pedi, hi-lites, other salon services, maxi dress, new work out shoes....

Deep Thoughts

Sometimes, you need to go back to the basics.  The past few weeks I have been struggling - seeing a gain on the scale.  After last week's gain, I decided to start over with the plan.  Start fresh, if you will.  This week the fresh start and a cold yielded me a 2.6 pound loss.  I lost the weight I gained and then some!

In other news, we are doing a traveling journal in our meeting group.  I decided to volunteer to take it home this week.  I really want to try upside down tracking.  This means instead of tracking my meals from the morning through the night, I will track starting with dinner and going through my PM snack.  This is not a tracking technique used in eTools at this point in time.  I think and hope it will help me get back on track.
