Ok, it's still silly-cold outside. It is supposed to warm up enough to snow. Then maybe get a little warmer so it can rain. Then it is supposed to get cold again. Ah, winter! The best thing I can say about it is that it really makes me appreciate the other 3 seasons of the year.
I am feeling like I'm going in to hibernation mode a bit. There are friends that I would like to get in touch with, just to say hi, exchange news etc. It would be nice to get together with some folks for an evening of company. But I can't seem to put in the effort.
However, the days are starting to get longer and I know winter won't last forever.
Yesterday was an OK Weight Watcher-ing day. I have to confess that I did deviate from my planned meals/snacks, and I had a can of Coke and a handful of dark chocolate M&M's. But it's all counted and I still have Flex Points left, so it's not a disaster.
Exercise-wise I kicked butt. (Do ya'll mind if I say Kicked Ass? Probably not. I think it's my mother's voice in my head, still telling me to watch my language after all these years). I did my Burn & Firm Pilates DVD with 4 lb weights (45 minutes), then I did some extra upper body work with heavier weights, plus 35 full push-ups, then 20 minutes walking on the treadmill (I just can't seem to stay away from the thing).
Re: the push-ups - a poster on the weightwatchers.ca message board that I check in with every day issued a challenge to do 210 push-ups this week - that's 30 a day. So I thought: why not? I ended up doing 35 (15 + 10 +10) which makes me feel kinda proud.
Scale was up a bit again this morning, I'm hoping it is just as a result of not enough water yesterday plus the strength training.
P.S. - Thank-you so much to Erin at Our Wicked Weighs for choosing me as the Featured Loser for the week. I am truly honored that you would think of me.
