Dancing Machine

Before I forget... I want to thank my readers for all of your well wishes, support, and kind words when you leave comments on my blog posts. It means the world to me. Thank you very much.

Yesterday I was a dancing machine!
My sisters and I danced to the game, "Just Dance" on Wii. It was so much fun. It was my first time ever to play on the Wii system. I know. I'm a little behind. It's funny because I used to be somewhat of a gamer in my high school and college years. Oh, how marriage changes you! Some of the dances were probably a little too fast for me, but I think I was able to burn a few calories. It wasn't Jillian, but I had fun doing it anyway. The twins loved dancing with us too. It's amazing how coordinated they have become.

Yesterday's Actual Food
2 corn tortillas, 1/6 cup lowfat cheese, 1 oz. roast beef
Vietnamese vermicelli salad, 4 eggrolls, 4 prawns, 3 oz. bbq pork, cucumbers, bean sprouts, other greens
water, water, water
ooh... a few pieces of spicy pork rinds (sorry if this grosses you out)
2 corn tortillas, 1/6 cup lowfat cheese
water, water, water
1/2 cup Diet Cranberry and Pomegranate juice (Ocean Spray)

Hmmm... I ate the vermicelli salad last week and yesterday. It was delicious. I don't regret eating it again yesterday. I ate that around 12 p.m. I danced for an hour around 3 p.m. I went home and did Jillian's "30 Day Shred." It must have been some of the guilt I felt form eating something I truly enjoy.  I think I'll be okay. I didn't want to have an all day feast on Saturday, since it's so close to my weekly weigh-in. So I decided to indulge a little yesterday. I'll be eating very clean and healthy for breakfast, snacks, and lunch on Saturday before we eat out for our "V-day" dinner. You know I'll probably get in a two-hour workout in there somewhere... now just to find the time with the twins around... hmm... I'll figure it out.

I'm excited and quite nervous now that I've dropped to 150 lbs. That means next week I'll probably get less points every day. Instead of 22 points, I'll get only 20 points. This sounds silly and not like a big deal to you probably, but it's a pretty big deal to me. I have been eating on average about 20 points when I am super good (6 days a week), so maybe dropping it to 18 gradually will be okay. I've read that it's okay to go two points below the point range. You'd still lose weight in a healthy way.
Did I mention that I haven't been in the 140's since college? That's over ten years ago. I'm really looking forward to wearing some of the clothes that I've put away.
Today's Menu
2 corn tortillas, 1/6 cup lowfat cheese, 1 oz. roast beef
7 almonds
2 corn tortillas, 1/6 cup lowfat cheese, 1 oz. roast beef
14 almonds
2 slices oat and grain bread, 2 slices lowfat cheddar cheese
1 WW chocolate chip cookie

I'm still trying to figure out when I could fit in the times to blog post, work out, make lunch, make dinner, and do the other "housewifely" duties besides trying to do it all when the babies nap for 1-2 hours. I'm trying to post this now as the twins color with their crayons in the office. It seems to work fine. It's getting them out of the family room and kitchen (which are the places they're usually stuck in all day with me with the exception of their naps). Maybe this will work.
I hope you're having a happy and healthy day.
