So today I woke up early (like I always do now - I'm just a morning person now I guess!). I was sitting here on the computer and I thought to my self - "Self - you could totally ride your bike to Weight Watchers this morning!" So I check out map my ride and see how far it is and it is just over 6 miles and I'm thinking I can totally do this. I need to eat a little something though and it is already HOT here so I know I have to drink water on the way - but I already know I'm going to have a gain, so what better day to do it?? I wake up hubby and tell him of my plan and he checks out my bike and makes sure the tires are good and off I go! It ends up being a little over 6.5 miles and takes me just a little over half an hour - I wasn't nervous about riding the distance - I was worried about the traffic, but that time of the morning it isn't bad. My wonderful hubby picked me up after the meeting since I thought 12+ miles would have been too ambitious and the traffic is worse after the meeting and it had only gotten hotter while I was in the meeting!
So my weigh in? I'm up .4 - I'm so totally OK with that - consider the fact that I tracked every point I ate this week and the dinner we had on Wednesday used all my remaining flex points AND all my earned activity points and I had a big fat RED negative number for the week and didn't get rid of the negative number until after my run on Saturday and on Thursday I was up over 3 pounds. I think this is the first gain I have ever had that I was 100% OK with and I know the reason for it and I'm not looking back - I'm looking forward!
