Week 0: Am I in over my head?

Date: April 27th, 2016
Weight: 140 Lbs (+1 from last week)
Left-over points from last week: -35 (not proud of it, but trying to stay honest)

Now if you have been read my last post, you would think that since this is my fourth time on Weight Watchers it would make it a lot easier for me to get in the swing of things.  LIES!! In reality, this is completely false and I have no one to blame but myself!!  Once you lose the swing of a good habit that you have created whether it be a workout routine, meal plan, writing a blog post a week, reading a book a month or anything else you can imagine – it turns out to be a lot harder to jump back on the bandwagon.

Glory Hole Recreation Area, Angels Camp, California

For the next couple of months, my husband and I have decided that we want to try to go camping in Northern California at least once a month for as long as the weather allows (and seeing as we are in California, I am hoping it will be until the end of October!!)  So, being the spontaneous family we are, we took first chance we got which was last weekend, April 22nd – 24th 2016 and our first stop was Glory Hole Recreation Area, Angels Camp, California.

Now I am not going to lie, we strategically chose the Glory Hole because what it’s name represents in slang terms.  How awesome is it to be able to honestly say, “I have pitched a tent in California’s Glory Hole?” Ummmm…. maybe it is only funny to my husband and I… but I couldn’t get enough of it LOL.

My Journey to a New Lifestyle… Attempt #4

Since I was very young, I had always struggled with my weight.  I may have been a junior national diver, but my eating habits caused me to continue to stay just a little heavier than the norm.  Although it may sound cliche, I told myself time after time that today is the day that I am going to change and become healthy – but that day never came.  I kept starting a fad diet, doing it for about a week and then finding an excuse to cheat.

I told myself time after time that today is the day that I am going to change and become healthy

In 2005, I started my first go at Weight Watchers but only online.  It was only my second year at college and I was surrounded by people who didn’t care in the slightest what they ate, how much they drank or going to the gym.  I found myself paying for months of a program that I hadn’t even opened yet (see how I purposely didn’t say ‘app’… don’t forget it was 2005).  Eventually I got my lazy ass around to cancelling my subscription and moved on with my life.
