I weighed myself this morning and I am down to 274 lbs.  I lost 2 pounds this last week, most likely because I haven't eaten a lot lately, due to a really bad head cold and sore throat.

I think the water really helped me this week in addition to the exercise.  Yeah for 245.00!

 

At weight watcher last night, they were sharing about the new "Active Link" accelerometer to help focus on fitness goals.  Has anyone here tried it?

managed a dance class on Tuesday

walked quite a bit on Wednesday

managed a good swim on Thursday (1km, with flippers, holding a board, alternating face up and down each lap)

did my own aquatic gym session for 45 minutes in a very quiet semi-private pool today, that was great

tomorrow am hoping to be able to make it to a 2 hours long roller blading class

 

.... but anyway, am still plateau-ing at the same weight, which i find irritating !!!!

Do any of you use a weight watcher's monthly pass or e-tools? I just signed up for the active-link little widget to help me up my activity.  I just started the 8 day setup phase.  It figures out the baseline of activity and then it challenges me to increase my activity a little more each week over 12 weeks. I am excited about it because I know my activity is the key to weight loss.  I have changed what I eat but my exercise sessions each week need to be more substantial. This blog talks a little bit more about the active-link device.

http://community.weightwatchers.com/Blogs/ViewPost.aspx?threadID=1724401

 

This week I changed to a standing desk.  I think it is going to help my weight for Monday. I am excited about that.  Each day I have weighed this week has been a little bit less than the day before.

Hey all. I'm sorry that I've been a crappy keeper of the thread. greensad.gif  No good excuse/reason other than I'm tired and stressed.

 

Working on updating the chart. Will post in a while.

I haven't been exercising like I should. Things got stressful last week so my main concentration wasn't on exercise..but I still ate healthy so it accounts for something. Although today I went to my bootie blast class.

150.4 today. I really need to get exercise in more often, when I do the weight seems to drop.  Right now I am battling a sweet tooth. I want to eat candy all the time it's making me feel like I am back in grade school. Lol

146.8! biggrinbounce.gif

 

I went for a run this morning. I watched the sun rise and FINALLY I ran for a straight 15 minutes and was not exhausted at all. Why don't I do this more often? lol. It's probably because DS wakes up earlier than I do most of the time. I prefer to exercise before I start my day.

208     Period almost over,still rings tight so I know I'm still hanging on to some water weight gain. Chocolate cravings gone. Yay!!  After my hockey game, I had a bowl of whole grain cereal w/unsweetened almond milk. Much healthier than the pint of ice cream that I usually have been eating after games.

 

 

Exercise plan for week:

 

Mon- Rest day

Tues- 75 minute early morning hockey class

Wed- 1 hour hockey class, 30 min. power skating class

Thurs- May go ice skating with my daughter

Fri- walking, no league game

Sat- walking

Sun- 1 hour hockey class

Well I have a very disappointing weigh in today. 242lbs. While away there was a choice of over priced restaurants or fast food. Guess which my husband chose. I'm sorry I let orange group down. I hope to do better next week.
