Well, I gained a pound this week. I knew the scale was being stubborn, and the weigh-in last week was the only time during the week my weight dropped as low as it did (later in the morning than I typically weigh and I had not eaten).
One reason I did Medifast was to get to the point where I could do enough exercise to make Weight Watchers work better for me. I think that is going to be really important. Otherwise, this week I am going to measure everything to make sure my portions are correct and I am going to change some of my food choices. Sodium may be playing a part (I've been eating a lot of popcorn, crackers and chips). I also am going to make some zero points soup to have when I am hungry and make sure I do not eat too much fruit (I don't know that I did, but it is possible). I am going to buy a digital scale to help with my food measuring. I think it is going to take some hard work to push past this plateau and I plan to put in some work in the gym this week.
Another thing I am doing is weaning myself off of SF Red Bull. My motivation is as much for budget as anything, but I know they are not healthy. I did not have one yesterday, but had a caffeine headache this morning, so had one. I have 3 left and think I can break the caffeine addiction without having to buy more.
My BP was a little high at the doctor's office the other day. However, they use those wrist cuffs there and those don't seem to be very accurate -- they will often measure me high when others won't. But I need to monitor that. I have been taking my medication, so if it is still high, it probably needs adjusting.
Plans for today. Hmm. I am cleaning house, for one thing. I do want to get me a cupcake (I've been craving one). I think. I plan to eat fairly normally (like I eat on Weight Watchers) and just add a treat here and there. I don't want the weekends to feel like a free-for-all.
I plan to get another treadmill workout in the gym. If the weather cooperates, I would like to get out on my bike. It was really windy when I walked Cas earlier. Hopefully I can take my bike to Katy Trail and ride a while there. I will run Cas and then let him ride in the basket so I could ride as long as I feel like I can. I would like to get an odometer for my bike (or some gadget) so I know how far I am riding.
The girls are moving today, so going to go run an errand for them.
