I got to leave work early today because I told my boss that after I came back from lunch, I wouldn’t have anything to do!!! I was pretty much done with everything at 11am! So she said I could leave early! That & I have plenty of vacation time to use!! Yay for leaving work at 2 instead of 5!!

Arrrrgh!

First let me apologize for my rambling rant.    Annnd here it goes…….

Ever been on a run and just gotten into your groove only to have to come to an immediate and abrupt stop?  Had that tonight, not just once but 4 times on my run!  Treadmill at work keeps tripping the breaker.

I am soooo frustrated right now.  On top of that I can’t post to Tumblr from my phone so I cant even post my crappy little run.  I keep getting a message from Tumblr that the upload has been stopped and it will try again later???  Then add the fact that I’ve gotten no more than 5 ½ hours sleep on any given day this week and it makes for one unhappy woman. 

Rant complete.  Thanks

It’s weigh-in day and I’m down 0.2 this week. It’s not much, but I’ll take it! As long as the scale is going down, I’m happy! I’m feeling bloated today and I know it’s because I haven’t been drinking enough water and have been snacking on salty things the past few days. 😳 I need to get back to chugging water! Looking to make these next 8 days before my birthday next Friday as healthy as possible! 8 days left of being 27… 😁 #weightlossjourney #weighin #progressnotperfection #teampineapple #fitfam #weightwatchers #wwsisterhood #progress #weightloss #healthy #noexcuses #icandothis #gethealthy #wwdivas #wwigfamily #igfitfam

I was feeling a bit down in the dumps today because I am up 3lbs this week.  No I have not been super perfect (crackers, not sleeping great and not getting close at all to my step goal)…. but pretty dang close (doing my strength training, eating well, etc).


BUT… I got my wellness screen results back (we get $100 bucks for completing a wellness screen through my health insurance)

I had pre- hypertension back at my highest, and in fact that caused some issues during my pregnancy.  I also was getting dangerously close to high glucose levels. 


Now… perfect blood pressure!  Everything else (BMI excluded obvs) is in the healthy range!  WOOT WOOT

Dug deep into the Facebook archives for a little #transformationtuesday action. Not surprisingly it is difficult to find full body pictures of me at my highest weight. This one is from 2009 and I had actually lost a bit of weight here in preparation for my wedding (only to regain it immediately after). Current picture is last night in my new shirt! I don’t shy from the camera anymore, which is a great feeling. Taking charge of my health and happiness is the best decision I’ve ever made. #weightwatchers #beyondthescale #thenandnow @weightwatchers

Lunch today is Weight Watchers Tortellini Soup at 4 points per serving. Really easy to pull together during the work week!

Ingredients

1 tbsp olive oil
3 carrots, small diced
2 stalks of celery, small diced
1 small onion, minced
2 tsp minced garlic
½ tsp dried thyme
½ tsp dried basil
1 tsp greek seasoning blend or oregano
salt and pepper
1 15oz can of diced tomatoes with juices
4 cups chicken stock
10 oz of Buitoni three cheese tortellini
1 cup baby spinach leaves

Sprinkle of grated parmesan (optional. If you keep it under 1 tbsp per serving, it does not affect the WW point count)

Instructions

In a large stock pan, heat the olive oil over medium high and sauté the raw carrots, celery, and onions until soft.
Add the garlic and seasonings and sauté until fragrant, 1 minute.
Add the diced tomatoes and scrape the pan to release any browned bits from the bottom. Add the chicken stock and bring to a simmer.

Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Add the tortellini and spinach and cook for 5 minutes until pasta is cooked through and spinach has wilted.
Serve with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese over the bowl. (Optional.)

Since April of last year my next mini goal has been to make it below 160. I’ve was trying and losing the same 3-4 pounds for months because I wasn’t being honest with myself.

I was not tracking. I was not eating healthy. I was not working out consistently. I was not drinking water. I kept telling myself I was doing everything right but when I sit down and look at it, I was not.

Since thanksgiving, I am down 7 pounds! Look at me losing weight over the holidays! And now I’ve finally hit my next mini goal! 🎉💪👍✔️😝🏋

Assuming I don’t mess things up, my total pounds lost on Saturday will be 30+

I can’t wait to weigh in and celebrate with my ww meeting family! And let’s all celebrate on here! No turning to food to celebrate for me!

Something i came across on fb…
The left is a 250lb person and the right 150lb. Look at the difference!! How much fat, not so much visible from the outside, but on the inside, crushing and restricting the internal organs. So much pressure on the joints and the heart to keep up with every day life.
I’m not far off the left and am gutted at how badly I am treating my body…

I’m fighting this and not going to give up. This picture has been such an eye opener to me.

When you’re updating your Weight Watchers card and you realise you’ve lost 71 ½ lbs in total! Not only that, but for the first time in my adult life, I’m under 200 lbs - I’m 198 lbs in total! 😮😮 Shocked yet happy! 😃😃 #weightlossjourney #weightloss #weightwatchers #under200lbs #shockedyethappy #amazing #feelingood #lookingood #awesome #12stonehereicome

After treadmill red faced selfie ;) and my dinner after I had already eaten half of it and remembered I wanted to take a pic.
13SP Zucchini/carrot/egg pizza with cheese, tuna with Philadelphia cream cheese, mushrooms and feta. Sooo good, I just made it a bit too thin this time so it broke and didn’t look like pizza anymore.

I’m already done with my goal for @mymonthlyworkoutchallenge for today! 10 minute walk, 15 minutes Wii fit and 13 minutes on the treadmill 👍

Aaaand I’m doing great with the water drinking today!!! So overall an awesome day :D

Btw. you’re all so awesome!!! 😘
