Week 10: Thanksgiving

Matt and I went up to visit family for Thanksgiving. It was a lot of fun, and I didn't track while I was gone. I sat down this morning and estimated what I had. I was probably better than I might have been in the past over a holiday, but after adding everything up- its not going to be a surprise when I am up tonight at weigh in. After estimating totals for all of my points, I used 83/45 of my weekly points! Wowza. I found a lot of the totals surprising because I thought I did pretty well about moderating myself...I hardly ate a whole piece of anything..I could have a bite of pie and be done- or just a half a cookie, etc. I didn't want to miss any of the Thanksgiving and wedding once a year dishes. But those bites apparently add up...and from my graph of pts consumption from WW, I think once I got off track, I just stayed there.

Although I went over, and that certainly wasn't my intention, I did make some progress toward my goals and staying focused while I was gone. I ran two days I was gone, and made an effort to get outside and walk on the other days, so I earned 17 activity pts! The most yet. More importantly than my activity pts was the fact that I could jog 3 miles without stopping, and really without being very tired. My muscles were soar all week from the hike, but I can tell I'm getting stronger. 

So as much as I am not looking forward to weighing in today, I am ready to be back on track!
