Anyway, I found out this morning that Patrick had presented me with a blog award. When I read this, I was taken back because it was the first award I have ever received for my blog. I want to thank Patrick for this honor and of course, I would like to thank all of you as well because with out the support I have received, I don't think I would had made it this far! Now, I have to follow a few rules in order to complete the process of being presented this award.
I have had a pretty good life so far, if I do say so myself (Knock on Wood!). But I do have an answer in reply to this question. I would definitely go back and change one thing in my life. I mentioned at the beginning of my mission that I tried doing Weight Watchers when I was in college. I stopped after a few short weeks because I wanted to party with all of my friends. I wish I could have seen back then what I took the time to learn now. I spent a lot of years being over weight and I had to suffer through them all. I do wish I could have taken the time, back then, to get myself healthier. I say this because I am now 27 and it has taken this long to understand that I was slowly killing myself, for years. However, I have learned from my past failures and I have used it to fuel my mission. I will never go back to being physically that way ever again.
2. Pass on to six people and inform them of the award.
I would be glad to do this step. The following people are who I would like to pass this award onto:
1. Maggie - I'm Losing It
2. Traveler - Trek to 99 Kilos
3. Just Me - Have you Gained Weight
4. Healthy Loser Gal
5. Alan - The Pounds Off Playoff
6. Vinny - The Fat to Fit Diary
My Next Goal is in Sight
I mentioned earlier in this post, that I received a nice surprise this morning when I stepped up on the scale. This morning I weighed in at 250.6 lbs! You know what this means...... I am one step closer to breaking into the 240's!! A few days ago, I reached 50 lbs lost for my mission. I also mentioned to you all, how that was one of my main goals so far for my mission, to reach that mark. And now that I have reached it, I think my next goal is breaking into the 240's. I know it is such short notice announcing this goal, but now that it is realistically right in front of me, I want to reach it really bad. Let's go Heavy Man, it is time to step it up a notch!
With that being said, let's get to the details of the day:
Meals of the Day (The Heavy Man - 38 Points)
(I am currently following the Weight Watchers Points System)
Early Afternoon (I slept in late today) - Grilled Chicken Sandwich and a 5 piece chicken nugget (Wendy's) = Points 13
Snacks During the Course of the Day - 1 pear and 1 Weight Watchers Brownie = Points 3
Later Afternoon - 2 slices of Weight Watchers whole wheat bread with 2 slices of Weight Watchers american cheese with a serving of baked potato chips = Points 5
Dinner - 1 serving of homemade Chicken Pot Pie (Weight Watchers Recipe) = Points 5
Dessert - 1 Weight Watchers ice cream cone = Points 2
Total Points Eaten Today = 28 Points (10 points under my daily limit)
I did not make it to the gym today. Patty and I spent the entire day running around food shopping, running errands, cleaning our entire apartment, washing all of our laundry, and cleaning out our entire apartment storage space. My knees and legs hurt from walking up and down my apartment stairs all day. I mentioned before that I like to take 1 day off from the gym a week and today was that day. Tomorrow I will be doing cardio at the gym.
