Weekend update

I had a great weekend,we took Erin to Chuck E Cheese on saturday. We didn't have any pizza there and I drank water!! WOOHOO!! We have decided that from now on when we go we are taking a friend for Erin. She is only 4 so she can't just go by herself and let me tell you, my husband and I can only handle those games for so long. But, it was worth it she had a blast!!

On Sunday after church we started our spring cleaning. Cleaned out the hall closet and the spare bedroom. Worked for like 3 hours and it looks great. Still have a lot to do, but not moving so well today. I have a bad back and it didn't appreciate all the lifting, bending and just plain moving that I did. So today I'm taking it easy.

I'm trying to decide if I want to just start counting calories or continue on WW. I'm doing pretty good on the WW but I'm not sure if this is actually helping me make a lifestyle change. What's going to happen when I lose my weight am I going to know how to eat properly? I think if I start counting my calories then I will learn to make healthy choices without consulting my point system. I don't know I'm at a crossroad right now.  Another problem I have is I don't eat all my points and I'm afraid if I start counting calories I will do the same thing. I'm basically a point "nazi" My husband doesn't think I'm going to continue to lose weight since I only eat about half of my points a day. But, I'm not hungry, so I don't want to eat. I'm just confused, I guess.

So what do you think? Do you count calories, do WW or something else? Hope you had  a great weekend and have a wonderful Monday!!


  1. I do my own thing. It's all wonky.
    You cleaned the spare bedroom...again?!

  2. Maybe check out spark or calorie king and see if either of their calorie counters help you. Do both for a few weeks and see which one you are more comfortable with.
    So remember that organizing lady we met? How about we take some inspiration and find our own ways to do that so that the office stays clean and organized!!

  3. Wow sounds like a super productive weekend! I gained some weight when I was a first year teacher and wasn't prepared for teaching 12 year old gang members in elementary school. Anyway, I used WW to lose it, and to be honest, I feel the point system is basically the same thing as calorie counting, except calorie counting is free, and my opinion is always to go with the free option. Also, I don't like how much WW pushes all their super processed fake ingredient chemical "cakes" and stuff, I prefer more real foods. But, that's just me. I'm sure you've heard it from your hubby, but don't eat too little! You need to eat enough to lose weight too!

  4. Hey! I noticed your comment on another blog about wanting to start running. I started a couch to 5K plan 7 weeks ago, and I love it! The link is, and you can find the plan on there. There are lots of walking intervals, and it's very easy to get started. You don't do more than you can handle, and it has honestly helped me SO much...I actually look forward to my running every day now. I hope this helps you, and good luck on your journey!
