Good Morning Mrs. "Robin"son!

There is the cutest little mommy Robin in this tree sitting in her nest each morning. I am sure you can't see her in this picture, but she's our new morning friend.

It is literally five feet from the deck. So each morning the dogs and I come out for coffee and a treat (coffee for me, treat for the dogs), and we all say/bark....."Good Morning Mrs. "Robin"son! She gives us a little chirp and a tweet back (bird tweet, not Twitter tweet).

Yesterday morning at 8:00 am I had been to "Boot Camp", WalMart, put in a load of laundry, watered the flowers, then outside for some coffee on the deck. I had an hour to go before weigh in. I was really hoping for happy results. Hope this weight class didn't bulk me up! :) I had an awesome week. I always eat my EXTRA points, and this week I did NOT, and I had several activity points earned that I did not use. But I did a lot of activity and three days of a one hour weight class had to of added some muscle.

I get to WW feeling fairly confident I was going to get my next FIVE POUND AWARD! So, I go through all the steps......

1. Visit the potty. (drank lots of water after that kick ass workout)
2. Shed all the extra's I, watch, ring, etc. (silver is HEAVY!)
3. Exhale. (I feel certain air in your lungs adds weight, don't you?)

Step on the scale. I really worked my patuuuteee off this week and only needed a 0.6 lb loss to achieve this weeks goal. I lost 0.2 lb. Urg. I think the weight class really did bulk me up a bit! The really cool thing here is that I went from 168.0 to 167.8, which technically means, I don't weigh 168 anymore, I weigh 167! (I'm ALL about seeing the positive here, and the number did go down.) I also have been taking my measurements lately, and the mid section is certainly getting smaller. If my butt and thighs would reduce themselves a bit to catch up with the waist, pants buying would sure be easier!!

Small or large, I have had a loss for the last five weeks in a row for a total of 6 pounds. I know I will have good results on the scale next week as well with week 2 of boot camp. I did "up" my weights a bit on Friday and that felt awesome too!

Now for yesterday's eats. I was really craving pizza, beer and cheese! WHAT? I know. So yes, I dipped into those 49 points yesterday! I didn't get any food pictures in at all, but here's what I did eat.

Refresh...I can eat 26 points a day.
I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise.
I have an allowance of 49 points that I can dip into if I chose.
I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.

The food I ate today and it's PPV.

Breakfast (banana) = 0
Snack (left over salmon, cottage cheese) = 3
Lunch (salmon salad) = 12
Snack (pretzels, carrots, hummus, cheese) = 8
Dinner (pizza) = 20
Drinks (beer, lunch, happy hour, dinner) = 20 (don't judge, I was thirsty!)

Total = 63

Activity Points Earned Today = 3
Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 12
How many glasses of water I drank today = 12

I LOVE this!
