no weigh in

I admit it, I was a big chicken this week. (bawk, bawk!) I used my "no weigh in" coupon they give you like every 6 months at weight watchers. I didn't want to weigh in, felt that a gain this week would really hurt my morale so I used it. I didn't miss the meeting though. This week wasn't about weight loss but it was a once a year meeting where you spend your fake money you made all year by losing weight on particular weeks or for meeting goals you set. It was like an auction where you bid on things, such as pretty bowls, mystery gifts, haircuts, massages, etc. I ended up getting a mystery bag that had a makeup bag set in it and a gift certificate toward a haircut. It was kind of fun but nothing to do with weight loss really.


I worked out hard yesterday and it felt pretty good. Started jogging again but my toe is bothering me. I think it may be time for a new pair of running shoes. I have asics but thinking maybe they don't really fit my foot well so may try getting some new balance this time. Think I will go to the new balance store but it is a ways away from here. Here is an article mostly about exercise http://www.ediets.com/news/article.cfm?cmi=2424228&cid=1&code=24429. And here is another one on diet tips http://www.nutrisystem.com/newsletter/weekof/010707/story2.cfm?IID=9087&fc_c=BFpXACA6LtcO&fc_u=AEXhV2. I get these newsletters and some are from wt loss companies and though I don't do their diets sometimes I get some helpful tip from these newsletters.


We got the stinking snow again! Seems each time we get ready to go to preschool, it snows. That's the 4th day of cancelled classes now. Arrgghhh. I notice that on weeks such as the holidays with no school or with the snow days that I get off track on my working out and healthy eating plan. I like the schedule! And when he is in school I get 2 hours to myself and that I miss. If the roads are ok, I will go to the gym as he is supposed to go swimming class later but we'll see if it still is on.

I will weigh in next week! I have to. I guess I'm in a time out period right now and I guess that's ok for now, I'm not going to beat myself up over it as that doesn't accomplish anything. I'm going to work on a list of "things I look forward to when I'm at my healthy weight" or something. Hope everyone is having a good week!

Funny how school is supposed to be back so soon after christmas.. we have grown up with not going back to school til the middle of feb.
15th I think they go back... about then anyway...
so far I have managed to survive the holidays... I had a lil gain.. but managed to get most of that back off pretty quick once I put my mind to it..
so hard to get back on the wagon...
and so blasted easy to sneak back those disgusting eating habits we have worked so hard to get rid of...
I smiled when you said you used your no weigh pass at WW and still went to the meeting..I have never been to WW but I know ladies that have done.. and they simply just dont go... if they have had a bad week...
or some just go and weigh in to all meetings and dont stay!!! I say omg.. you pay $19 au to go and get on a set of scales... Give me $19 and come to my place and use mine...rofl...
I would do it for half price...they are mad I think...ha ha...

don't stress about not weighing in, it's only a week and you know what to do... the workouts are important and just get back on track when you can. the more you pressure yourself the less likely you are to do it.

love the photos too!

I don't think at ALL that you were being a chicken. You could have just stayed home but you still went. Going and using the coupon is so much better than not going at all. And you did it because you knew you couldn't take the hit right now and that's okay, gives you a chance to work hard this week and then feel better about going!

Sorry about all the snow, all I can say is I feel your pain, we've had a big storm every week for a month!
