That put a big smile on my face!
I got dressed for a cold run, and then got the kids all ready for school. It's quite possible I was still asleep during my run today, because I don't remember much of anything about it! So weird. But I was dreading this run with a passion--I don't know why, but I just really wanted to skip out today. I thought of a million excuses not to do it, but excuses always lead to more excuses, so I knew I was going to get 'er done.
I even slept terribly last night, because I knew I was going to be running five miles in the morning when I didn't want to. Maybe that's why I don't remember much of my run! Anyway, I was scheduled for five miles at race pace (9:00/mi) and I had no intention of trying to push the pace--I would have been happy with nine minute miles, even though my previous race pace runs have been faster. I did an out-and-back route, and apparently I took a picture of myself when I returned:
After my run, I jumped in the shower to get ready to head to Weight Watchers for my weigh-in and meeting. Since I'm in maintenance mode at WW, I don't want a big dip in my weight, so I just tried to make my weight the same as it was last week (with clothes and shoes and all that). The WW center got a new computer system last week, and when I saw my weight sticker, I thought the computer must not be very smart. I can do math in my head better than that:
We got our materials for the 2013 plan, called Weight Watchers 360. From what I gathered, between WW Online, the meeting I attended today, and all the materials I've read, the 360 plan is the exact same plan as the 2012 PointsPlus plan. My leader said that the 360 plan is more about fitting WW into your lifestyle, but I didn't feel like anything was different.
I did buy a new 3-Month Journal, because that's how I log my food, and I really like the new design of it! It's bigger than the old one, but worth it when I see the layout.
|2013 tracker vs. the 2012 tracker|
|This is new. Each week, you can plan out your meals in advance.|
|This is where you can plan your exercise for the week, and keep track of|
your weekly points and activity points
|These are the actual tracking pages to log your PP. I like that they have a |
spot to distinguish between the daily, weekly, and activity points used (the
old planner didn't do this).
I had such a great time last night catching up with Stacie! She's had quite a bit going on recently, so it was good to hear from her. We sat at Tim Horton's for about two hours, and then we made plans to meet up again on Monday (that way we don't go another year between visits!)
For reference, Stacie is the friend that
