MMA Challenge - Tapout XT - W1D1

That fucking scale did not give me good news today. 163.5. It's not as bad as I feared but what the motherfucking fuck?

So, I'm back on Weight Watchers, trying to eat as cleanly as possible. I just finished a 31-day no diet soda challenge, and it was hard. Really hard. I've been informed that I have to do another challenge, and I think I'm going to go with SkinnyMs again and do the No Added Sugar Challenge. I am going to make some minor exceptions though. First, I need my gum. Sorry, but I do. Second, I still want my coffee and tea, and I might allow myself to drink that as usual, except I would cut back each week on the amount of sweetener I use.

And as a little motivation for me, I realized that my 20th high school reunion is less than a year away. So that gives me...10ish months to get in shape. Do I have a goal weight? Ugh, I don't know. The lowest I've ever been is 127.5 but if I can get to 130, I'll be happy. But then again, it's not about the number on the scale. It's about how I look and feel. I felt great at 130 before, and I looked pretty good but I still could have stood to lose some body fat. So, we will see what the mirror tells me when I hit 130.

Today's workout was Turbo Jam Fat Blaster. I am keeping Saturdays open because I have two 5Ks planned in the next two months. I couldn't kick this shit off with a rest day. I'm having difficulty adjusting to working out on carpet again. The old house had laminate flooring. The apartment is carpeted. I can't do videos in the garage because I don't have a television out there. I don't know if it's because the sneakers were brand new and had no wear on the bottoms or what but moving my feet was difficult. Jumping was great. I ended up taking me sneakers off and just doing it in socks. It was almost two slick that way. Anyway, I used my heart rate monitor (which I don't entirely trust anymore, even though the settings are correct and blah, blah, blah) and burned about 240 calories, good for 4 Activity Points.

Did you really only eat 19 points+?

Forget it. I just read your other one. But are you sure you've got that Boost thing right? WW lowest targets went from 29 to 26. It seems like the boost should be THOSE three points. Not down to 23. No one has a target of 23.
