Going full steam ahead

Sunday morning! WOo hooo! I woke up early and got a 45 minute ride in first thing! My weight was just about the same as yesterday... 184.8 (2/10ths higher). So that is a good thing. I've been getting some stuff done around the house....I've mowed our yard (riding mower) and I've already got one big load of clothes on the line...the second is in the wash right now. I've calculated my foods for the day. And other than make and eat lunch, I'm pretty much ready to head to town for the day. I"m going up to my parents house. I"ll be doing their mowing today. That equals to about 45 minutes of push mowing.....which in my book equates to exercise/activity! WOO HOOO! I talked to mom and she and I are going to go consider my options for a dress for a wedding that I'm going to in early October. I have a black sundress....and a white jacket that will work. I also bought the cutest black and white polka dot sandals that I can wear (if it's not too cold....). I also have a green dress...but I would like to get a shawl or something if I end up wearing t hat. Or am I going to add a splash of color to the black dress with a different colored jacket/shawl for the black dress. Decisions decisions decisions.

My sinus headache is pretty much gone......I can feel the pressure in my head, but it's not a pounding headache, thank goodness. My throat however....not good. And I've picked up a cough. NOOOOO I do not want to be sick!

Got bit/stung by something when I was outside mowing this morning.....my arm hurts like the dickens....but oh well. Nothing I can do! :-)

Well, today's foods are super high in sodium......I know it and I know that there is nothing I can do about it (well other than eat something different...but they are stuff that has been requested by my husband....so I"ll eat them. They are not all that bad for me. I'll be under my points...but for lunch we are having a Chinese style meal.....and for dinner tacos. I'll be doing the taco salad thing again....so I'll be fine point wise...but sodium..eii yiii yiiii. Hey, at least I know about it.

Just for curiosities sake, I'm dual journal ling. I"m still keeping my journal with my weight watchers points. However, I'm entering everything into fitday.com. I've parallelled some days in the past, but I"m trying to do it for a couple weeks. It seems to me that 24 weight watchers points is about 1400 calories for me. The nice thing about this dual journal ling, fitday gives such cool reports, charts and numbers for your figures! :-)

I do the same thing! And sometimes i find that i'm actually low in calories so i need to add a bit ;)

I did the same thing with points and calories before I decided to just quit WW and deal with calories alone. I quit WW because of the cost but since you're a life time memeber you don't have to worry about that. I've still got 36 pounds to go and just didn't want to give them any more of my money.

Congrats on the exercise you are getting in.

Good for you getting those AP's in while helping your parents out!!

Knowing that you're going to have a high sodium day might encourage you to drink more water to combat it. :-)

You're doing great keep it up!!

I vote for black dress, white jacket and polka dot shoes, it sounds cute.
