Here are some statistics for you. I’ll complete these after today’s Weight Watchers Meeting.
Exercise Points Goal: 14
Achieved Points: 37
What’s happening here: I had quite a stair stepping routine in my office one day for a total of 12 points. You see, I compute and step at the same time, and I had a lot of computing that day. I find, however, that if I overdo, I do hurt myself. Today, for example, after stepping for an hour yesterday (watching tv at home stepping), my foot is sleeping and my shoulder hurts. So today will be a day of gentle stretching, and I will try to rope in the marathon sessions to avoid injury. You may well see less exercise next week.
Also, you should know that I ate 5 points more than I exercised last week. The result was no big deal, as the weight loss will tell you. I had a harder time with sweets last week, but I managed, and this week’s rule is only one major indulgence. I need the rest of those flex points for just coping with real food, especially since I plan to exercise less this week to avoid injury.
Beginning Wii Weight: 223.8 (My heaviest ever after this summer.
Wii Weight on 11-5-13: 215.8
Total: 8 pounds LOST
Weight Watchers on Initial Weigh In: 224
Weight Watchers on 11-5-13: 218.6
Total: 5.4 pounds LOST (and that’s a sticker, for those of you who remember elementary school fondly. 🙂 )
What’s working: This is counter-intuitive, but I eat every exercise point I earn, and every point in my saved points pool. I don’t usually do this, and I think my body sees this as reduction without starvation, so it is dropping weight.
What’s working 2: Less worry I think translates into more weight loss. This is a hard week, with registration, NaNo, social issues, a con coming up, and a ceiling repair to prepare for. Through it all, I am trying to just focus on one thing at a time. I didn’t sleep well last night. I suspect it was caffeine, as I did all my relaxation techniques. But we will see how this week goes. Stress reduction is very important to weight loss.
I am pretty done in today. I plan to track today, but not exercise, unless I am overtaken with the urge to stretch for a while at home. We’ll see.
Back next week. See how I weather my trip to Minnesota for gaming this weekend. I have already purchased some low cal healthy snacks for the trip.
