its april, fools!!!

Tuesday, April 01, 2014

Today, Tuesday, is typically weigh in day for me. But being that it is also April Fools Day, I didnt think I could believe the scale, good or bad.
I figured if I had a loss it would be a big fat joke!!
So, I decided to skip it til next week. I doubt there will be a loss anyway.
I have been doing somewhat better and warmer days have allowed me to walk a little more often.
I have found though that such a long time away from the track and the extra pounds I added on over the winter, has slowed me.
I used to be able to walk an hour and push it on another 15 minutes or so.
But my most recent walks have been pushing it at 45 minutes.
But still, its outside, its sunny and its walking.
Ok, I exaggerated the sunny part. It is getting sunnier, so there.
I have 42 days until my next doctors appointment. While, that allows me 6 weeks to lose weight, I am really more concerned with my vitamin d level and wondering if its increased much.
I am taking 8,000iu of d3 daily, not to mention, 2,000iu more in my calcium and vitamin d supplement and a womans one a day and 50,000iu once a week prescription strength.
And guzzling milk like its going out of style, I do however need to add some fish to my diet.
I went shopping yesterday but totally was so annoyed and bothered with personal issues that I forgot to even go over to the seafood section.
Opting instead for weight watchers 2 point brownies and red velvet cakes of which I have already eaten 4 since last night!!!
This is why I dont often buy these snacks.
When I need a sweet or chocolatey snack, I try to go for weight watchers big fudge bars, they are bigger and more satisfying and take longer to eat so that by the time I am done, i no longer feel the need to snack.
The little points snacks are bite size and so I end up eating more of them.
Today is supposed to be another warm sunny day, So, I am blogging early, have my house so so cleaned up and plan to go to the track around 2, yes, I know its going to be 75 and sunny, but I want to sit on the park bench and soak up what sun I can.
I hope to see a loss on the scale this time next week.
And that is no joke!!!

    LOL! I like your reasoning about weighing yourself on April Fool's. Too bad I didn't see that before I weighed myself.

    I am so right there with you, re: "diet" snacks like brownies, cookies, etc. I can't have them in the house. Low cal only counts if you don't eat the whole package.

    When I did Weight Watchers years ago, I ate like half my daily calories in Skinny Cows and WW popsicles. That is no way to eat, man. I was starving all the time! So now I just stay far, far away from the cookie and ice cream aisles.

    Glad you're finally getting some warmer weather!
