I feel like I've been in the twilight zone for the last few days! It was new student move-in and orientation at the university I work for this past week and I've worked the last seven days straight- including a few 16 hour days. Plus, we celebrated Matthew's birthday and we attended a "welcome back" picnic at work- lots of food and weird hours!
My eating and working out routines were totally disrupted and I am feeling kinda crappy about how this week ended up. I did get my five workouts in and I did get to a Weight Watchers meeting this week but I went waaaaaaay over my points and started this week with a balance of -27. Boo. And my weight stayed exactly the same as last week. Double boo.
Monday- 2 mile walk
Tuesday- 45 minute run
Wednesday- 20 minute toning band DVD
Thursday- 45 minute run
Friday- Rest day
Saturday- 9 mile run, 12:29 pace
Sunday- Rest day
Total mileage: 18.8 miles
This week's nutrition was all over the place. I ate quite a few times at our campus dining hall including midnight breakfast- it was pretty delicious; I haven't had a hash brown patty in months!
I was able to sneak down to Panera between work events and grab a full sized Napa Almond Chicken Salad Sandwich. It was the perfect blend of protein, carbs, and yum to help fuel me through a busy week.
For Matthew's birthday, we ate at a ridiculously good barbecue place, Redd's Smokehouse BBQ in Carlisle, PA. The portions were so big that I actually got THREE full meals out of one dinner. And it was completely worth the points.

157.2 pounds as of 8/19/14 weigh-in.
-0 from last week.
-33.2 since January 2013.
-43.6 since heaviest: 202 in 2005.
Update on summer goals:
At the beginning of June, my Weight Watchers leader had us write down our goals for the summer and I'm happy to report that I've met all three-
- Weigh 160 pounds or less.
- Earn at least 20 Activity Points each week.
- Attend a Weight Watchers meeting each week.
No matter what the scale looks like on Wednesday (my weigh-in day) from this crazy week I've had, I am proud of what I've been able to accomplish this summer. This is the first summer in a long time where I felt like I was able to stay on track, both with eating and exercising, and I am hopeful the fall season will be just as productive and healthy.
QOTD: What word would you use to describe your summer?
Awesome job meeting all of your summer goals! Love that you're focusing on how great your summer has been from a big picture view rather than focusing in on a specific bad week.ReplyDelete
That's the only way I can get through the crappy weeks! :-)Delete
It's awesome that you maintained after such a bad week and didn't gain! And you should be proud of what you accomplished this summer!ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jennifer! Since I weighed in on Tuesday this past week and my crappy week was Wednesday and on, we'll see how I actually did. Since my weigh in is a different day then when my "week" starts, it kinda throws off the "week." I'll find out if I gained tomorrow- ugh. But it'll be ok even if I did :-)Delete
