Great start to the day and these 30 days. I woke up at 5:15am; made the husband and I breakfast smoothies; and let Jillian Michaels kick my butt for 30 minutes. I did the Level 1 workout, with 3 lbs weights, knee push-ups, and no extra breaks.
Weighed yesterday and took my measurements before working out this morning.
- Weight: 156 pounds
- Bust: 37”
- Under bust: 30”
- Waist: 30”
- Abdomen (aka “pooch”): 39.5”
- Hips: 41.25”
- Largest part of thigh: 24.25”
- Bicep: 12.25”
Yesterday, I started tracking my food again, Weight Watcher style. I don’t know why this works for me rather than tracking calories, but it does, for me. I’m tracking using the original Points system, which was the method when I was in Weight Watchers in 2008. I know there’s some good things in their newer programs, but I’m using what I have for now.
22 Points Allowance
- 6oz coffee -0 points 22 points remaining
- 1 Tbsp Dairy Coffee Creamer -1 21

- 4 Fingerling Potatoes -1 13
- 1 Gala Apple -1 12
- 1 serving Lettuce Wraps -6 6

Weekly extra points allowance remaining: 31.5
I didn’t sleep well Sunday night, so I appeased myself with Starbucks Chai for breakfast. Not the healthiest.
I’ve been craving Chinese food for a couple of days, so dinner was to appease that craving in a better-that-take-out way (word-of-the-day: appease). I did my research on frozen eggrolls before I went to the store on my way home, but they didn’t have the brand I had decided to get; the brand I did get were more points…and I should have only eaten two potstickers…but I had a moment of weakness. Not bad for Day 1 though.
My main “daily goal” this week is to drink water – I believe that drinking water is one of the keys to weight loss. My daily goal is to drink ½ an ounce for every pound of weight. That puts me at 78 ounces. Yesterday I had 80 ounces; today, thanks to the early workout, I have already had 60+ ounces before 10am.
