Therapy Day 1

Good news from the physical therapist! She seems to think stretching will help my pain and once my flexibility is back I will need to do some strengthening. However, in the meantime I am able to bike! Although it's not the same as running for me, I'm thrilled to be able to do some kind of cardio to stay in shape. Also, anyone have a good upper body/ab workout they want to share? I'm gonna try to take the time to work on my strength while my ankle heals. As far as eating goes, today was pretty…See More

Accountability

I decided I need a way of tracking my emotions, which seem to be the sole reason that my eating/working out habits change daily. Lately I've been SO unmotivated, and although this is mostly due to a sprained ankle 3 weeks into my half marathon training, I don't think this should be an excuse to eat poorly as well. I'm just extremely frustrated for a variety of reasons:1. Just as I was starting to get my motivation back with the help of a new running program, I'm told by the doctor that I may…See More

End of Vacation Blues

I just got back from a week of vacation on Martha's Vineyard. The beach was wonderful and it was so nice to take a week off from work and just relax. I tried my best to stay on plan, but it was really hard with the eating out and my favorite treat (ice cream). By the end I wasn't counting points which was a disappointment. Thankfully, I didn't gain more than a pound or so, something that should be easy enough to lose. However, I'm finding it tough to get back on plan after eating differently…See More

Andrea Laurie commented on CaitCroBen's blog post Fuller longer?
"try scrambled egg whites for breakfast with a piece of toast or fruit. The egg whites are really low in calories but keep you full for a looong time. Theyre great with some salsa or a little ketchup too!"

Water Weight?

Last night was my 5th weigh in for weight watchers....I am SHOCKED. I lost 4.2 pounds! (Total of 7.2 since starting). I'm now down to 121.8 and couldn't be happier. BUT...I'm just curious if a lot of this is water weight. I wasn't as great about drinking water yesterday, it was 97 degrees out, AND I went to the gym before weigh in. So obviously some of the weight is water, but is all of it? Just wondering how much others have lost in water weight from a workout/ not drinking as much. Thoughts?…See More

"thanks for the tip about water- thats definitely a good idea. @Keem- what would you suggest I do differently? I know that I could just not drink, but I don't want to give up a fun day for a few calories. (Yeah I know it sounds bad that I…"

"Tequila shots are only 70 calories, :)  I know the deal, one drink, three drinks, then suddenly Burger King sounds like gourmet food.  Been there, done that.  I'm pregnant and you'd be surprised the amount of willpower…"

"So with you on this, fellow PSU friend.  ;-)  I would suggest bringing water with you.  Tomorrow around here (Central PA) is going to be about 89 degrees.  Staying hydrated tomorrow is going to be crucial being outside and if…"

Alcohol and Eating

So, this week was great and I'm feeling really encouraged since the scale said 123.7 this morning! Haven't weighed that in a while. BUT... tomorrow I'm headed to the Rascal Flatts concert. I'm really excited and I know it's gonna be a ton of fun, I'm just worried about blowing my healthy eating. Country concerts and tailgating seem to go together, and all of my friends will be drinking. Being in college, I decided a lifestyle without alcohol was not worth it to me and although health is very…See More

Andrea Laurie commented on Julsbake's blog post Fighting The Good Fight
"If you look at it in the grand scheme of things, a few extra crackers and some mac and cheese won't hurt your dieting. But if you let it turn into days of binging, that's when you'll have problems. Try not to beat yourself up over it…"

Heidi commented on Andrea Laurie's blog post WW 4th Weigh In
"I did the same thing with Jenny Craig. I only had 15 to drop but the counselors looked at me like I was a bit crazy for joining. It was very expensive so now I am just working on the last 5 by myself."

WW 4th Weigh In

Tonight I had my 4th weigh in at weight watchers...only down .2 for a total of 3 pounds since I started. Although my goal for WW is 124, my personal goal is 120. I'm at 126 right now. Although I know I'm not overweight, I joined weight watchers to eat healthier and see what the best shape I could be in is. I was just wondering though, does anyone else join weight watchers to just lose a few pounds? Sometimes I feel like people think I'm crazy for joining. It's so inspiring to me to see the…See More

Profile Information

About Me:
A college girl who is seeking to lose those stubborn last 10 pounds. I have struggled with being body "obsessed" for a lot of my teenage years, and although I am still struggling, I am learning that it should be more about feeling good and simply being healthy. I recently joined Weight Watchers and hope that the plan will help me gain a more positive attitude about food and my body. I am starting to blog for added motivation that I often lack. Wish me luck :)
Plan of Choice:
Weight Watchers
Workout Philosophy:
I'm a gym rat ALL the way
