My first week back at Weight Watchers is done. It was pretty easy to fill in everything because these days they have an app too and I always have access to my diary. I made my breakfast and lunches by using their recipes, for dinner I use my own recipes (except for Sunday evening). I have never been hungry. I did realize that before I started this I was actually eating much more than I thought and not always enough veggies.
Result: a loss of 1.5 kg (3.3 lbs). I don’t lose weight fast and this is a huge loss for me which makes me happy because it’s good for my spirit to lose the first week I start something.
I also signed up for WW @work. I’m doing this with a colleague of mine, he asked if I would come with him. Planning is that this starts in week 18 where we have a meeting once a week during lunch time.
Q&A from my last post:
Debby the white stuff in my Beebox last week was fresh goat cheese.
Beautiful morning for a run although this was a tough one. I took my first walk break after 4 songs on my Ipod which was 1 song more than on my last run but after that it went downwards fast. It will be better when I can run without walking again because often after a walk break it isn’t going that well.
You know what makes you run a little bit faster? A goose attack!
I was almost home and running on a bike path minding my own business. I saw this Canadian goose at my left and it was blowing at me, guess there was another one somewhere on a nest. I just kept running when it suddenly came running first and then fly after me. I had to keep my head down otherwise it would have hit me. I started running a bit faster but as quick as he tried to attack it was over after that too. Boy running or walking in breeding season can be dangerous, second time this week I was attacked LOL.
Distance: 4 K / 2.5 miles
Weather: dry, not much wind, 5C (41 degrees)
Last song on Ipod before finish: Take That – Shine.
I think this was my best run this year so far. It was the fastest (well it’s an opinion of what you call fast). I took my first and only walk break after 21 minutes. That’s when it started to rain pretty hard too and when that happened all I wanted was to go home and running always is faster than walking. This was a good run that left me with a good feeling afterwards.
Distance: 4.2 K / 2.6 miles
Weather: dry, later rain, not much wind, 3C (37 degrees)
Last song on Ipod before finish: Fun – Some Nights
