Scales are definitely weird creatures! This time my home scale shows a .6 lb gain. I weighed in last night at Weight Watchers down 2.4 lbs, making me weigh only about 2 lbs more than Benny. They gave me my 75 lb charm as well as the Live Life Active running man charm (same one as last year).
My March Shakeology Challenge is complete. I tried to make a different recipe every day but ran out of ideas. Either I didn't have the other ingredients or I wouldn't eat them. I absolutely loved all the recipes using peanut butter. Austin enjoyed the Reese's knock off recipe with me. Benny didn't want to partake in any of it. When I did the sampler pack this fall I didn't like the flavor but felt full. This time I liked the flavor but was still so hungry. I think drinking the almond milk instead of skim milk has adjusted my taste buds because that's what the Chocolate Shakeology flavor reminded me of this time. I'm still interested in trying the new Strawberry flavor so I've booked it to receive a bag late May to do another challenge in June. Would anyone care to join me?
I continued working out with Jillian Michaels through Friday. Since Saturday I've been doing a beginner's belly dancing DVD. Is there any way to loosen up my hips so my moves will be more fluid? On the DVD there was a move called the Egyptian Walk. I guess that I expected it to be something like what you do to Walk Like an Egyptian but it wasn't anything like that!
Next week begins my 21 Day Fix. I read through the eating plan yesterday and do have some concerns about my eating. As you well know, I don't like many fruits and veggies. It's a struggle for me to get in 1-2 per day total. On the 21 Day Fix for my calorie range I need 4 veggies & 3 fruits (or maybe the other way around). How in the world is a picky eater like me going to survive these 3 weeks? There is a food list for each container but still my selection is very limited. Yes, I know I'm only limiting myself but I don't want to waste the food either.
I am still looking for stories of people on Weight Watchers who've tried the 21 Day Fix. Please direct anyone interested to complete the form so that I can share their experience.
Benny's surgery Friday was cancelled. He ignored the rules and drank milk when he got up. Not because he was hungry but because he was thirsty. They finally called yesterday to reschedule it for the 17th...at 7:30 AM! Oh, that is too early when we have to be there at 6 AM! LOL I told Benny that when we got home we'd both take a nap and I'd do my workout when I woke up.
All year I've been spotting pretty much all month long. I'm thinking it's either my fibroid or perimenopause. The gynecologist is leaning towards the fibroid and wants me to have another ultrasound (I had one back when I first saw him). So I'm going to try to schedule it during Benny's surgery so I'll have something to do.
