No Joke

source

I wish this was an April Fool’s Day Joke… but sadly it’s not.  :/ OOC stands for Out Of Control! That would be me. For the past 3 or 4 days… I have been totally off. I have been eating like my “old” self. I can’t handle it anymore…. it’s just gross. I’m taking advantage of the fact that today happens to be the last day of the month. Thank goodness!! I took down my March work-out calendar … this month is over.  Dunzo.  Nothing can change that…

 

I pulled out my Weight Watchers book and reviewed the Healthy Guidelines… and printed the new April calendar for my bathroom mirror! I am committing to taking a picture of every bite…. using my iPhone dietSNAPS app. Just like it was day 1… I need the accountability to get back on track.

I will use the WW eTools app to track the healthy guidelines.

• 8 glasses of water or crystal light

• 1 to 2 servings of lean proteins (eggs, turkey, chicken, whey protein powder)

• 3 servings of non-fat/low fat dairy (cottage cheese, frozen yogurt, cheese)

• whole grains

• 8 servings of veggies and fruit

• nutritional supplements

• 2 tsp of flaxseed oil

• watch salt intake and added sugar

• exercise (not gonna try to kill myself at the gym, just get at least 1 hour of something in 5 or 6 times per week… walking, elliptical, running, body pump, or boot camp)

Who’s looking forward to getting back on track???? ME!!!! I wanted to say THANKS to my good friend Cindy for hooking me up with a new apron! She gave it to me for my birthday and I love it! :) It’s APRIL 2012!!!!! Seriously y’all… let’s make this a great month that we won’t regret!!!

About Lexy

40 years old, "stay at home mom" to 2 boys (ages 16 and 14), wife to a chiropractic kinesiologist! I love blogging and learning new ideas. I follow the Weight Watchers Points Plus program and enjoy working out. I have run 2 full 26.2 mile marathons and 3 half marathons... and many 10k and 5k's. I love taking BodyPump classes and lifting weights. Working out has always been fun for me, but I struggle with eating healthy. Blogging has introduced me to a world of healthy eaters... When I first started WW... I just wanted someone to tell me what to eat! I didn't like cooking and I am not the kind of person that can just throw things together. There are tons of ideas out there and I love finding new and fun ones that I feel like I am capable of making myself!

      Hey Erin! Glad to know others are getting back on track with me!! I’m feeling the motivation this morning for sure! BTW, that’s not a dumb question about my calendar at all… I do post the calendar on my bathroom mirror as a place to track my work outs each morning. For some reason it keeps things in perspective for me… I know that I’m developing habits over time… and I like tracking things day by day… You might like this http://firelitesfire.com/4-helpful-hints/ ??? I have a few things that I do to help myself get back on track. :)
      Let’s do this!!! :)
