Moving In The Right Direction

The Weight Watchers scale said that I’m down one more pound this week. Again, the scale at home said no such thing, but I’ll believe the WW scale, I suppose. This puts me officially on a downward trend, which is awesome.

I went for a walk-jog three days last week: Sunday morning, Tuesday evening, and Thursday evening. My “Aunt Flo” showed up in time for the weekend, so I opted to skip Sunday morning’s jog. Today, I was recovering from a busy day at work, after a late night watching YouTube videos, so I not only skipped my evening jog, but I inadvertently took a half-hour nap on the loveseat downstairs.

I’m going to make a concerted effort not to let this new habit fade out before it has a chance to take hold. Surprisingly enough, I’ve really been enjoying my jogs, once I get out there and do it. I used to think I hated running, but I think I just hated running in gym class, at the ass-end of the pack, feeling like people were staring at me because I still had two more laps around the gym when most everyone else was already done. Running at my own pace makes me feel fantastic.

This weekend, Aaron and I ate lunch at the International Festival, at the mosque in Perrysburg; had Korean with friends; made takoyaki (octopus dumplings) at home; and I *still* lost a pound. This gives me hope for the future: maybe this way of eating is totally sustainable for me, if I can eat especially healthy during the week, eat fun things on the weekends, and still lose weight.

  1. YAY! Congratulations! I think you may also find that even though Aunt flo wears you out, a good sweaty workout will help to keep her and the nasty moods/cramps at bay.

    Also, I have a hard time taking naps. Way to go for listening to your body and taking a rest when it was needed.

    Keep up the good work! I’m wondering if WW might be what I need, too!

  2. I know WW has been super sustainable for me. I’d definitely recommend it.

    My nap was more of a “Let’s just chill here with my iPhone while my computer boots up… Hey, wait, why is it getting dark out, and why is my computer on but asleep?” 😀
