Well I finally decided to join. I'm attempting Weight Watchers with my work mate. We both have our points booklets, and I'm learning about the point system. It's incredible how it all works. I'm allowed so many points a day, and for the program to be effective, I need to not exceed my points. Today I started writing down everything I eat and keeping track of the points. I'm not eating differently today, but I am observing what my current intake of 'points' is. So far it's looking fine, but I am pretty certain I will go WELL over the allocated amount. Did you know that FRESH Indian Curry isn't that many points? We worked it out that it will be around 10 points for our serving. And then I grabbed my frozen butter chicken curry that I had in the freezer here at work. I keep one in the freezer as a back up for when I run out of lunch meat or something at home, so I have lunch for that day and don't have to buy it. Well I worked out that my frozen prepackaged curry is around 16 points!!!! Amazing that fresh creamy delicious goodness is better then the blander prepackaged stuff.
I hate exercise. With a passion. Even back in my fit healthy skinny days of being an older teenager/young adult, I hated it. I always seem to have trouble breathing and have no endurance whatsoever with running or jogging. I seriously used to be pretty fit back then, and still couldn't run for longer then 3 minutes. So I hate it. But I have a Wii Fit and I plan to use it. You can burn a few hundred calories from doing simple activities and workouts. And it's fun. So I'm going to stick with that for just now.
So all this talking about food is making me hungry.
