One good thing about WW e-tools

Even if you're having a terrible week re food/exercise, at the end of the week all the nasty numbers on the e-tools counter are wiped out and you start afresh. With no guilt.

We'll see what the numbers on the scale say tonight. Am I making progress? Are all my activity points making up for the T-day feast? According to the numbers on the WW e-tools, yes.... We'll see what the scale thinks.

I know I'm being petty, but it really annoys me that my scale always shows me weighing a pound or so less than the official WW scale. I realize I get officially weighed at the end of the day, so there's more weight from the water I drank all day, and I also realize it would probably cause a stampede if I stripped off all my clothes before stepping on the official scale, but even so... it's annoying.

I'm not alone in this -- in the meeting last week, another women mentioned that she used to not drink any water on weigh-in day. We're all suffering from The Biggest Loser issues. Bah! Me, I'm gonna drink, and I don't mean martinis.

Exercise du jour: Couch to 5k Week 3 Day 2 Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then do two repetitions of the following:

* Jog 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
* Walk 200 yards (or 90 seconds)
* Jog 400 yards (or 3 minutes)
* Walk 400 yards (or three minutes)

fail. That's two fails in a row. This is not good.

And in the a.m., you've basically been fasting for 8 hours, minimum. Which is why I always preferred to do my weigh ins then.

I've been walking to the WW meeting each time; it makes me feel more virtuous. Tonight, it's going to be too damn cold to walk anywhere (yes, even a mile).

You know I'm totally like that with my weigh-ins and I'm not even in WWs... sigh.

I just started the couch to 5K program. Today was supposed to be Day 2 of week 1. We have rain, thunder, lightening, and tornado watches in effect. Hopefully I'll have better weather tonight.
