I have gone back to the Weight Watchers. Lately my I have been gaining a little every week and I’m getting close to my heaviest weight ever. I have to do something to get my weight under control.
For the past 2 weeks I’ve tried counting calories but that just isn’t working for me. After thinking a couple of days about it I decided to renew my subscription to Weight Watchers. In the past this has been the only program that has been working for me so it’s worth to give it a try.
I started yesterday and since the website has lots and lots of recipes I’m using that to my advantage. My plan is to make my breakfast and lunches (at least on weekdays) from WW recipes. For my dinner I use my own recipes and sometimes one of the WW.
The funny thing is that I joined this weekend and today I got a leaflet on my desk that they are offering a 13 week “Weight Watchers @work” program which is for free. There will be a coach at work every week during lunch break. I haven’t decided yet if I will join that too because I don’t really want to lose weight with people I see at work every day. A colleague (male) of mine is still thinking about it too and asked if we could go together if he would go. I might do that although I don’t think he will join.
For now I’m doing it on my own. I prepped my work lunches for this week Sunday evening. My breakfasts this week didn’t need much prepping, I can make them in the morning. So far (and yes it’s only 2 days LOL) it’s working, especially the fact that I just have to get my containers with my lunch out of the fridge in the morning, makes it so much easier.
I’m giving this whole weight loss thing one more last chance because I’m not happy in my body at this weight, not to mention the fact that a lot of my clothes are too tight at the moment. I’ll keep you updated in the next weeks how it goes.
Q&A from my last post:
Lori you asked if I know what bird is nesting in our birdhouse: it’s a great tit (that’s what google translation gave me). There are 2 of them and they are not around the entire day but parts of it and then they are busy making the nest.
Debby the swan on the nest was in the wild. This is the second one I’ve seen this season, the other one I saw in my village.
Monday: 30 Day Shred
Normally Monday is my rest day because I clean my house at night. But I switched that and took my rest day Sunday and did the cleaning Sunday morning. Today I did the workout that started my working out with DVD’s: the Shred. The first workout DVD I ever bought, I even did level 1 which was, of course, my first DVD workout too.
Total time: 27 minutes.
Already a bit lighter at the end of my run, think I’ll be running in daylight by the end of this month. We have had lots of rain Monday evening and night but by the time I did my run it was dry. I don’t often have to run in the rain early in the morning which definitely is a pro. Not a fast but a good run with 2 walk breaks.
Distance: 3.2 K / 2 miles
Weather: dry, not much wind, 10C (50 degrees)
Last song on Ipod before finish: Paul McCartney – With a little luck

April 7: Where I’d rather be.
I am where I want to be. I like traveling from time to time but there’s no place where I’d rather be than at home with my little sweetheart.
April 8: Hobby.
I have always loved walking with Bella but the past year it has become more of a hobby when I started doing long walks in nature at the weekend.
Saturday April 5
Lunch: a big salad with cucumber, radish and grilled chicken that I spiced with a lemon-pepper and a honey-mustard dressing I made myself of olive oil, white vinegar, mustard and honey.
Dinner: Lasagna of rutabaga with minced meat. I didn’t use pasta instead I used the rutabaga. This was a delicious meal. I made two portions so I could eat it on Sunday for dinner too.
Monday April 6
Red curry with beef, pak choi and red pepper with yellow rice.
Tuesday April 7
Chicken breast with potatoes and green beans in a musterd sauce out of the oven. New recipe but not spectacular. Not going to make this dish again.
