I woke up at 10am today, I must have been tired because I don't usually sleep in like that.
My first mission of the day was to go buy milk so I opted to walk down to Walmart and pick up a few other odds and sodds and then walk home. Planning a trip to Safeway tomorrow to pick up the fresh stuff but apparently we're getting snow. I heard 10cm, my Dad phoned me to tell me he heard Calgary would get 30cm. If we get 30cm of snow I'm not walking to the grocery store and may just live out of the pantry for the week. I really really hope it's not a lot of snow.
This morning when I left at 11:30 it was plus 10 by 3pm it was 0, that's a fast drop my friends.
I also picked up a Fit Yoga magazine while at Walmart and it had a weigh loss article in it. One tidbit of advice that caught my eye was don't count calories and that the best food to eat is the food that's good for you. Sounds simple doesn't it? This article says the counting keeps you so much in your head that you don't pay attention to what's going on in your body. It also says some diets are filled with chemicals and the first thing taken away is protein. Protein is good for muscles.
This got me thinking a little. On WW we focus on points which is tracking. Do you obsess about points or calories where you look at the numerical value vs. the nutritional value? I know there's been times where I've thought it's only 2pts - the mini Jos Louis cake for example.
As I was in Walmart I noticed they carry some the Biggest Loser products like whey protein powder and a protein drink crystal. Not exactly wholesome ingredients. Ever read the ingredient list on WW foods...a wee bit scary.
Of course if only it was that simple. I'm not so sure my internal dialogue would lead me to the healthiest of options as I have a strong instinct for not so healthy i.e chocolate. It is something to think about. Do I obsess from the numbers and ignore what my body is telling me? Perhaps that will be an experiment for the coming week.
Alright that's it for today.
