RE: Weight Watchers check in 8/8
Hi everyone -
Heather - is this your first rotation? I just started an old Cathe rotation about two weeks ago. It's really interesting to watch your body to respond to the change in workouts.
Marie - I may have missed this, why was your DH in Brazil? I know what you mean about having him back and getting back on schedule though. It totally screws up the routine when my own DH is gone.
Traci - I think you're on the right track. Doubling up workouts isn't good for your body and doesn't change the fact that you had a high point day. And you don't ever want to view working out as punishment. So what? You ate a lot of points yesterday - today's a new day and move on. You learned from it and that's what counts. Now you know that if you go to a reastaurant famished, you need to work harder to make good choices. I have a handful of choices for some of our regular restaurants so that when I get there I already have my options limited. I find it easier to stay on track that way. Plus lots of restaurants have their menus and nutritional info available online so you can get a really good idea of what the good choices are ahead of time.
Ooops, getting really long winded there.
OK - yesterday was decent pt wise. I only splurged on two graham crackers with almond butter. The problem wasn't so much the pts, but the timing - I had to have them right before bed. I know better, but ... Today I have a business dinner. It's at a great restaurant that serves delicious, HEALTHY choices, so I'm psyched.
WO was L&G plus S&H Tris & bis. I still need to do a 30 min walk because I haven't been getting enough cardio in with this new rotation. I used to do a min of three days of cardio a week, usually averaging 4-5 days . This new rotation (lower body stregthening) only has 2-3 days cardio, plus some of the cardio isn't as intense as I used to do. I think that may have alot to do with these couple of lbs that I picked up.
Happy Tuesday everyone!
