At 137.5, that's a 3.5 pound gain for the week. I'm not liking this upward trend! I definitely feel ready to get back on track though. I really would like to start and end the summer at (or below) my goal weight of 133. Summer officially begins on June 21st, so I'm going to stick to my plan to get back to it.
I am shooting for 100 Activity PointsPlus this week, which is going to be very tough! That's over 14 PP per day. But I'm really hoping that it keeps me active and busy, so I don't think so much about eating. I'm also doing my best to get in all the Good Health Guidelines for Weight Watchers this week. Today, I checked them all off, even my healthy oils. (I actually love to drizzle oil over popcorn for a snack, sprinkled with lots of salt).
Today is normally a rest day, but I took Monday and Tuesday off after the half-marathon on Sunday, so I decided to run today. It was raining this morning, with a good chance of thunderstorms, so I ran on the treadmill. This is the first time I've run on it since finishing Sons of Anarchy, and I've been dreading it because I wasn't sure what new show to watch.
I'd added quite a few shows to my Netflix queue, so I chose one that looked interesting--"Flashpoint". The description on Netflix says: "Sgt. Gregory Parker and his Strategic Response Unit tackle high-risk cases too tough for normal cops, including bomb scares and hostage situations." I like crime/drama shows, so I gave it a try this morning.
It was really good! It's exactly what I was looking for--dramatic with lots of action and suspense to keep me interested when I really want to do anything other than run on the treadmill. There are four seasons, so it should keep me busy for a while.
I ran five miles today (heart rate in Zone 3), and then walked 2.2 miles (which got me through two episodes of the show). When I was done, I saw that I had already earned 8 PointsPlus. (I stopped my Garmin after the run, because I don't log the walking).
Once I plugged in my ActiveLink to the computer, a new message popped up, congratulating me for finishing the 12-week challenge.
I used an Amazon gift card to buy the Nike + Kinect Training game today. I've heard good things about it, and I really liked doing the Wii Active 30-Day Challenge last year. I'm going to try and do something similar this summer, and figured I'd check out the Nike + game.
Today was a great day--let's hope I can repeat it tomorrow!
