WW Update!

So I figured now would be a good time to update all of you about my progress with Weight Watchers. Ya know, since I'm eating chips and dip, decided to skip tonight's Zumba lesson and have been binging on Holiday goodies all weekend.

Alright so it's not as bad as it sounds. I am eating chips and dip...but I already added it to my points and I still have 11 points left for the day. And I am skipping Zumba, only because I don't have anyone to go with, I'm a little tired and I have to work early in the morning, none of which, are good excuses for skipping, I'm well aware. I don't have one. But when the Saturday morning classes start back up January 8th, I'll be at all most of them. I really do love it. And I have been eating badly this weekend, but the only day I really overdid it was Saturday. I knew it would happen, it was my family's Christmas party and there is always so much amazing food there! I try to control myself with portions, so I can taste a little of everything. (My cheesy potatoes' portions are always a little bigger than average.)

I got back on track Sunday morning and have been doing good since.

I haven't lost any weight in about 3 weeks. It's sad, but I also haven't gained any, so that's good. I'd like to lose before the New Year starts but I'll be happy until then as long as I don't gain any lbs!

So far on this journey I've lost 10.5 lbs. I've been doing it since the end of September, which kind of disappoints me but it's my own fault. At first I was really into the plan and I was losing 1-2 lbs per week and was happy as a clam. But after one bad weekend, I gained 3 pounds and lost my motivation. I have it back, I do the Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred some days, and Zumba on Saturdays. (After the Holidays, where all the food is...of course.)

At the moment, I do feel a little guilty because I told myself I'd go to Zumba tonight. I just don't feel like driving 20 minutes there and 20 minutes back in the freezing cold. I'd rather relax tonight!

My good friend Lindsey recently joined WW and she has talked me into running a 5K in the spring. If that weren't a good enough reason to get into shape, my other friend Cindel's wedding is next year and all of the festivities that lead up to said wedding start in January. I must get to exercising! Hopefully I can find some Zumba classes on the way home from work, then I'd really be out of excuses! There is one located at my actual place of work, I just don't want to look like an idiot since I'm the worst dancer on the planet. Also, my feet don't move when my brain tells them to, so...I got that.

Anyway, I'm done rambling for the moment. I hope all of you that are in my same desperately-trying-to-lose-weight-before-you-lose-your-mind boat that I'm in are having a good holiday and better luck!
