Day 4: so far so good

I didn’t post anything yesterday, but I’m happy to say that I’ve been able to stay OP. Yay, me! I feel like the thing that was always missing before is back: MOTIVATION! Will be going on 2 beach vacations this summer, one in July and one in August so I MUST get in shape for that. Even if I only lose a half of a pound to a pound a week, I’m cool with that. I don’t need to see 2 pounds fall off me at a time to feel successful. I can do it!

I’ve been struggling keeping a positive attitude in other areas of my life lately, but I just have to keep at it.

Happy Hump Day!

Monday, Monday…*sigh*

I don’t have the Monday blahs quite as bad as usual today, maybe because I stayed OP yesterday and I’m feeling pretty good as a result. Even the dreary rain won’t break my spirit. I can (and will!) do this!

I need to drink more water. I’ll try to drink at least six cups of it at work today. The only problem is that the water from our water cooler is REALLY cold, and I have sensitive teeth so it’s kind of…blah…but I will power through!

I’m hoping my posts will make sense eventually, but for now, I’ll settle for the ramble.

Was going to go running with some friends this morning, but the rain has kept us inside. There’s always tomorrow. 😀

Gotta love those activity points

Just finished walking with a friend and my mom, who is visiting right now. We walked for 100 minutes, so that’s 3 activity points. Yay me! I decided that as long as I stay within my points range this first week back OP, I’m not going to concern myself with making sure I eat all the right foods. You can’t do everything at once. It’s been my experience that whenever I try to do it, I doom myself to failure. Baby steps, baby steps. I’m rockin’ it.

Not looking forward to going to work tomorrow for various reasons, none of which I’ll bore you with right now. I just feel kind of “blah” about it lately, but I just have to keep thinking “Pollyanna, Pollyanna, Pollyanna!” Every little thing’s gonna be all right…actually, that’s Bob Marley, but he must’ve been a pretty smart dude. Words to live by.

Ok, yes, I’m rambling. I’m tired and, while I love my mother to death, she’s a  lot to take sometimes. I’m used to spending more time on my own. Not that I’m a loner, but I definitely need “me” time where it’s just me and my thoughts. Maybe I should start meditating.

Planning to go running with some friends bright and early tomorrow. Well, technically we run about a mile and walk 2, but that’s better than nothing. I am woman. Hear me roar!

Weight Watchers Online: Day One

Hello, world. Jen here. Thanks for coming on my most excellent journey with me. The underlying purpose of all of this is MOTIVATION, which I have found to be severely lacking of late. I figured that the more time and energy I devote to this, the better off I’ll be. Weight Watchers has worked for me in the past, so why not now? Today’s weight: 120 pounds (ugh ugh ugh!). Will be going for a walk a bit later so I’ll be earning some activity points at that time. Yay!

A bit scattered right now. OD’ed on coffee this morning, so forgive me.

Catch y’all later!
