I have no excuse...

...other than the fact that I was more interested in seeing the new Stampin' UP! catalog than getting a workout in. That's it, that's my reason. I can't even blame it on the hair anymore (though I did skip washing again today to let the colour REALLY set)'s all about Stampin' UP!

I would share what I saw in the new catty...but I can't. It's strictly off limits till July 1st, but oh my!!!

Anyway...Points tally for today:

Yogurt - 1 pt.
Tea with Milk - 1 pt.
Coffee with Cream and Sugar - 3 pts. (there are some things I absolutely refuse to give up!)
WW English Muffin, Reduced Fat Cheese, Egg - 6 pts. (this was lunch today for a change - LOL!)
Welch's Fruit Snacks - 2 pts
Made in Japan Teriyaki Meal - 10 pts. (CRAP! And I thought that was healthy!)
Tea with Milk - 1 pt.

Total - 24 pts - despite that whole Teriyaki thing - YIKES!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

No treadmill or weights today...

DS and his class are having a family "picnic", which basically means that everyone brings snacks and we play in the park for a couple of hours. It's not SUPER warm out there, so I'm not sure how it will go. There was a rain date, in case of inclement weather, but it's not raining, so I guess we're still on.

So far today:
WW English Muffin, Reduced Fat Cheese, Egg - 6 pts.
Tea with Milk - 1 pt.
Mini Carrot Muffins (evil little buggers!) - 6 pts.
Tomato and Cucumber Salad with 2 Tbsp. dressing - 2 pts.
Chocolate Chip Cookie - 3 pts.
Asparagus - 0 pts.
Bacon - 2 pts.
Ginger Cake (1/16th of 8" sq. pan) - 2 pts.
Tea with Milk - 1 pt.

Total - 23 pts - WOOHOO!!!

In other news, I had my hair hi-lited and cut today and it looks AMAZING!!! I will try and get a decent picture in decent light tomorrow to put up on here...

Thanks for peeking in today!

I TOTALLY slacked this morning and did not hit the treadmill. What I did do was walk up and down stairs when I went to get DS at the bus. Here's how I do this: We live on the 9th floor and each floor has two short (7 steps) flights of stairs. I walk down two, then turn around and walk up one, walk down two, then turn around and walk up one, etc...till I get to the ground floor. It's not nearly as strenuous as the treadmill, but it definitely gets the heart pumping faster. Then, I walked the long way around the underground to get to the car. Again, not super strenuous, but every little bit counts, right?

There will be no treadmill tomorrow either as I am having my hair cut and coloured (hilites) and the colourist requests that hair not be washed. I'm certainly not going in there with a head full of sweat - ICK! I will likely do weights tomorrow and then back on the treadmill on Thursday.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hard Core WW? How's that working for you?

Not quite as good as I would have liked, but I still posted a loss, so that's good!

Yesterday looked like this:

WW English Muffin, Reduced Fat Cheese, Egg - 6 pts.
Walnuts - 5 pts
Tuna with Light Mayo/Seasonings - 4 pts
Decaf Grande Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte - 3 pts
Five tiny Gingersnaps - 1 pt
1 slice Reduced Fat Cheese - 2 pts
Pork Tenderloin - 3 pts
1/4 c. Mashed Potato - 1 pt
Green Beans - 0 pts
Vex (that my husband offered and I should have said no, but just couldn't - UGH!) - 4 pts
Tea with Milk - 1 pt.

Total for the day? 30 pts - BLECH!!!

I did however (as mentioned) manage my regular trek on the treadmill and did upper body/core/legs weights after the treadmill. So I'd say that's like one step forward and 1 1/2 back...let's make today a better day!

What do you get when you cross...

...a week of Aunt Flo, overindulging and not working out...topped off with a weekend at the Bread and Honey Festival and an early birthday celebration?

You get a three pound weight gain...that's what you get!

And I was SO close to dropping to 22 pts for my birthday too - DAMN IT!!!

It's my own fault of this week will be TOTALLY hard core WW. LOTS of water, sticking to points and hitting the gym EVERY day! My birthday is 6 days away and while I don't think I can get to 22 pts, I can certainly undo the damage I did last week - UGH! goal is to post here EVERY day to let you (whoever is following along) know how things are going.

Today, even after not hitting the gym for a week, I still managed the cross-country program as well as I was doing last week, so that is a step in the right direction for sure! I've had 6 points so far today and they were filling points, so they'll keep me going till lunch - another step in the right direction.

DS's cooking school called and they had to cancel tomorrow's class, so that's more good news, though not for him...but at least I won't be eating what he's cooking - LOL!

Off to the shower and then DS and I will be makin some home made granola and I'll be doing some paper crafting.

Thanks for checking in!
