Family Day!

Good Afternoon!

How is everyone doing on this very warm Fall New England Thursday? I hear from my sources in Texas that it’s cooling off down South, yay for what the south calls Fall and boooooo for sending us your 80 degrees.

I was planning on going to get some pumpkins and cornstalks today but it’s so warm they will just brown right up and we are in for a couple of warm days next week as well. I will have to wait I guess :(.

Anyway, I switched things up this morning a little bit. I usually head to Fit World for cardio in the AM and leave the boys here but I decided that Zachary and I needed some park time. So I sent Mr.GGH to Fit World with his work out buddies while Zac and I took off to Brayton to walk the track and hit the playground. Brayton was like a ghost town this morning. No one on the track or the playground so that was kinda cool. I put in 2 miles on the track while pushing Zac in the stroller. Ladies that is one heck of a work out. 24 pound child plus big Eddie Bauer stroller going up hill equals YOWZA! After the miles we played and ran around….and yet he’s still awake LOL.

I’m still counting the cals and I’m dying to get on the scale! I feel lighter as odd as that sounds. I promised to not weigh myself until Oct 6th when the 2 weeks is up and it’s tough. I do have a scale addiction I will admit it, not proud of it, but at least I can admit it ;). Typically I have been EXCELLENT about only weighing myself on Sunday mornings…..and I will have to skip this Sunday AHHHHHHH! Oh well it will be worth it if this really works. The only part I don’t like is having to write down every morsel. That’s why i feel Weight Watchers doesn’t work is because people obsess and become scared of food. It’s been rough to not obsess and I have to know that it’s OK to go over 1,200 I’ll just have to do like I normally do and work harder at Fit World the next day….NO BIG DEAL!

Here’s my breakdown for the day thus far:

Breakfast: Quaker Oats Weight Control Oatmeal in Maple Brown Sugar ( 2 packages I was STARVING) Powerade Zero(free)-320 cals


Post Miles Snack: GGH Breakfast Muffin (English Muffin, 1 egg “fried”, 1 slice Rice cheese) Powerade Zero(free)-230 cals


That’s 550 for the day! I’m full and satisfied too! (NOTE: when I say “Free” that means zero cals)

So now I’m going to get cleaned up and ready for Family Day! Don’t know what we are doing yet but I will figure something out!

Have a great day everyone!
