Wellness Weekend: Getting Back on Track

 I had a great first week back on Weight Watchers.  While I never really left Weight Watchers I had gotten away from logging foods and started slowly gaining weight back. I figured the start of the new year after all the holiday indulgence was the perfect time to get back into gear.


I began logging everything I ate on my app and stayed within the blue dot range every single day.  I would like to lose 12 pounds to meet my goal weight.  I re-read all my old weight loss posts to reacquaint myself with all my favorite WW meals and snacks and wrote up a new grocery list.  I did manage to drop 1 lb. in that first week!  

I ate lots and lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and even cooked up a crust less quiche for a delicious 1 point lunch.


My second week hit a little speed bump with two last minute take out meals and a birthday celebration but I refuse to beat myself up over living life.  I am however making a commitment to work out at least 3 days a week.  A combination of yoga, stability ball workouts, Pilates, hiking, and using our treadmill should make getting back on track easier to do. 


I feel so much better when I am following my meal planning and cutting back on all the snacks.  I am determined to get back on track.

  1. I think the biggest thing in a weight loss journey is giving ourselves grace when we don't reach our goals. Sometimes other things are more important.

    1. I think so too, but on the other hand it can sometimes be too easy to give myself grace and not hold myself accountable either.

  2. Good for you. I hope to get back on track soon too. I am extraordinarily busy right now painting my very large sunroom (if you've ever seen pictures, you know it's a massive room with very high peaks), so I have no time to exercise. Another week or two I should be done and then I can go back to my regular schedule.

    1. Oh I think painting totally counts as exercise! That uses so many muscles.

  3. You're doing awesome! It's good to give yourself a break when you hit those speed bumps! I always eat better when we meal plan too.

  4. I love that you gave yourself grace. I think it's so important to have a balance. :) My mom used to make the cabbage soup recipe from Weight Watchers that was really tasty.

    1. I have never tried the cabbage soup but I'll have to add it to our menu next week; I have a cabbage coming in our Misfit box this week.

  5. I need to lose about the same amount. It's so hard!

  6. Those last 10-15 lbs always seem to be the hardest to lose. I need to get motivated to eat better and exercise because I'm just feeling gross lately.

    1. They really are so stubborn but I was down that low pre-pandemic and pre- surgery so I know I'll get there again. I managed to hike for an hour and 40 minutes today-- that's got to help!

  8. Way to get back on track, Joanne! I have been trying not to beat myself up for living life, too! I have been doing short yoga sessions (15-40 minutes depending on what I need) every morning before I start the day for the past 2.5 weeks. They say that it takes 2 weeks to create a habit and I can honestly say that after two weeks, I really look forward to doing yoga. I can even feel myself getting stronger already and I don't like missing the practice because it centers me and helps me set my intentions and focus for each day. Thanks for much for sharing your journey and linking up with me!

    1. That's wonderful! I go through spurts where I exercise every day but as soon as I skip one or two days it's so hard for me get back into it.
