Confessions of a ww leader

I mess up. 

I've been a Weight Watchers leader since October. My life has changed dramatically since then.  I went from a very scheduled life to weekends that are not as structured. 

I've been less diligent with my tracking. I put food into my mouth and mentally track it. I've slacked off with my working out. 

Um, the scale shows it. I'm still in my goal range, but I know I am letting old habits creep back in. Eating when I'm stressed.  Eating in front of the tv. Eating without paying attention to portions. 

Nat has been wonderful and lets me cook almost whatever. No avocado, mushrooms, tomatoes, or shrimp.  But that doesn't give me a reason to let it all go. 

So, today begins tracking what I eat. All of it. Any of it. I'm choosing to pay attention and track. Because it works. And I want to be proud of what I am doing for myself.

I celebrate I can work out. 

I celebrate I have some face time with my fiancĂ©. 

I celebrate my kids connected the lesson of chocolate mousse to synthesis so quickly. 

I celebrate a gift from my parents that makes our wedding actually feasible. 

I celebrate the constantly changing weather. It reminds me that nothing will last forever.

My friend hosts a celebration every Saturday. I'm trying it out.

So, looking back over the week, I am celebrating that 
1) my new student seems really cute and sweet. The class welcomed him well. 
2) coffee is brewing as I type. 
3) I became a runner who can talk to the others so they can push thru the pain. 
4) j remembered a lesson I taught him about long vowel sounds and tion. He was listening!
5) I have today with my fiancĂ©. I love our weekends together. 

Five is good to begin with...
