I am officially recommitting to Weight Watcher's TODAY! I have been slowly getting back into better eating habits and trying to detox my body from all of the sugar and alcohol I've been binging on since Thanksgiving. So today I started off with a Slim Fast and planned on making today the day I started drinking water again. Then I decided that I need to stop putting it off, and I might as well get back on the WW wagon today, and start journaling my points and keeping up with what I eat/drink today. I've misplaced my points calculator, but I'm writing down the Cal/Fat/Fiber to figure it later.
I am going to hold off on getting on the scale until Saturday (which will be my new WI day). I know I am holding on to a lot of water weight (I haven't been drinking water AT ALL for at least a month). The scale and the numbers on it does weird things to me, and I don't want to see a big gain and get discouraged, so I'm going to give myself a few days to get back on track first. I know I've gained a little, but my pants are still loose so I haven't destroyed all my efforts.
I am going to go for 8 - 10 glasses of water this week to flush some of this junk out of my system. I am also going to limit myself to only 1 diet soda per day (I've been drinking about FIVE), and I am going to shoot for 5 f/v (from NONE). It might sound like a lot at once, but I know I can do it, and I NEED to do it.
I have also decided to start getting on the elliptical again on the days I don't work at Target. When I first started my second job, my body had a hard time adjusting to the physical labor, and I was literally in pain every day. My feet and knees HURT so bad after I got off from work each night, and for most of the next day. But now, I am adjusting and am ready to start exercising again. The movement I do at Target has to be helping me because if not, I would have gained so much more than I know I have. But that movement PLUS exercise at least 3 times per week will be excellent, I'm sure.
I've been successful so far this week with controlling my mood. Making a conscious effort to be happy and positive does help. I have tried to be clear about the changes I want to make this year to Clyde, and have allowed him the opportunity to either get on board or get out of my way, so we'll see what happens with that.
Thank you all for the positive response to my New Year's resolutions. I value your input, and appreciate your support!
