Quick update Day 16

My eating has been up and down this week but I'm trying improve.  I do have to say my eating has been better than it was a couple of weeks ago.  I'm still trying to get at least 4 fruits/veggies a day which is one of my problem areas.  I have been working on mindless eating!  There are times when I noticed I've eating something without realizing it. I have cut down my sweets but I can't seem to cut them out totally.  If I need chocolate I go for 1 or 2 weight watchers candy instead of a King size candy bar. 

I have trying to include exercising into my day.  I have been walking my children to school and back.  I know it is only about 2 blocks both way but somedays I go back and forth twice.  Then I have been trying to get a 2 mile exercise video in too.  Somedays, I get in and other I don't.  If I don't I try to walk around or in place for 2000 steps.  Last night I did 4000 steps because we went out for pizza with a friend.

Tomorrow is weight in day and I will be happy if I don't gain weight.  I can't be prefect and it I try it will cause me to fail.  I have forgiven myself and moved on!



  1. April.....NOBODY is perfect! You are making an effort to do something about your weight, we all are! Dont get down on yourself! Ive been at it 11 weeks now and I weigh in tonite. I have gone over my WW log and noticed things I shouldnt have eaten and there were 3 of the 7 days that I didnt exercise. Ill just do better NEXT week! Keep up the good work! Oh, a friend of mine loves chocolate and has one miniature 3 Muskateer each day. She gets 10 bites out of it by simply enjoying it while eating it and its only ONE WW point!

  2. Hi April,
