One Day Down

I rejoined weight watchers - they have a 40% discount now, along with a join for free campaign: www.weightwatchers.com/save

I went into it today knowing I would have to shop - so didn't have breakfast :-(, no snacks, 5.25 oz of pork chops w/ 1 c. natural applesauce; a healthy choice for dinner.  Of course, since I skipped breakfast and had no snacks, I still had the feeling of being hungry...so topped off my day w/ a bag of popcorn and a skinny cow ice cream snack.....

So, all in all not a great day eating wise, but I still came in at 26 points for the day.  I also managed to get 2 activity points trying to move my freezer into my office.  Summary of that story is I wedged my freezer into the doorway.  I tried to move it....my grasp slipped a few times and needless to say I have some lovely purple bumps on my arms that will turn into some magnificent bruises later this week......

I have an appointment with a trainer later this week - she's going to work with me on exercises that will help with my DDD (degenerative disc disease) and will hopefully strengthen up those areas in my neck & shoulder.  Key to this is to not let my pain be my excuse to never exercise.  It just doesn't work.

Went grocery shopping after work - $250 later I have a well-stocked healthy kitchen again.  I have snacks for tomorrow; lots of veggies, lots of fruits, lean cuts of meat......I'm ready for the rest of the week.
