My secret travel weapon is raw almonds in a baggie. For what it's worth.
August third will be my one-year anniversary with Weight Watchers. I've lost 20 pounds since I joined, which is a little less than halfway to my goal. Admittedly, 20 pounds isn't all that great for a year, but a loss is a loss. I'll take it.
About a week ago, I returned to the gym, taking it slow. I aim for 40 minutes of cardio and then free weights and resistance training for 15 minutes. I overdid it yesterday and spent most of the day feeling exercise-drunk. Today I'm giving myself a rest.
My eating isn't perfect. I'm not adhering strictly to the plan, and I'm bored with tracking. However, my choices are better than they used to be. I almost always have fruit on hand, along with reasonable snacks like string cheese and non-fat Greek yogurt. For the most part I still do the tracking math in my head.
So the point of this entry is: I could do better if I worked at it, but instead I've been doing the minimum.
I do plan to make an effort to continue the exercise. I'm tired of feeling my body atrophy beneath me.
And that's my WW update.
