Happy New Year!

It's a New Year and a chance for a New Beginning!!

On December 31, I had to weigh in to round out the second month of the weight loss challenge I am participating in. 213.4!! In 2 months, I lost a total of 16.6 lbs and 11 inches!! That is right on target for 2 lbs a week which was my initial goal when I started back on November 1.

Since I had to weigh in last week Thursday, I decided not to weigh in today. I also decided that I will be weighing in on Thursdays from now on. Right now, I am focusing too much on my eating during the weekend, because I am so worried about Monday's outcome. While it's good to be vigilant, I think at this point it's a detriment. When I lost weight before my wedding, Friday was always our weigh in day. On Weight Watchers, it was ideal as we would use most of our Flex points early in the week ie; THE WEEKEND!, and then be able to focus on eating on track during the work week. So, I have decided to go back to that as it always worked out so well.

That is that!! It's another week, and another set of goals.

1. I just started Couch 2 5k yesterday. I want to get my other 2 runs in this week as well as a strength session.

2. Keep on drinking that water!

3. Eat on plan!! I have started meal prepping again after the holidays.

Have a great week and a Happy New Year!

I did the couch to 5K program last summer. It's a great program! Keep up the good work!

Sounds like great rationale to me (regarding which day). Here's to you in 2010!
