Another walking post

I apologize if you are getting sick of me talking about walking again today.
I was able to get in another 4 miles yesterday with my husband! Have any of you noticed my mile tracker on the right yet? Click on it and track your own miles! I love having such a great tool to be able to track with. If you create a free account you can link it to your blog and be held accountable. There is also lots of great info to be able to look back on later to help your training such as weather, mileage pace, speed and so much more.
I also received a black eye on the same outing from my husband! Feel free to read about it by clicking here!
We had such a great walk and it was such a great way to reconnect with him. I think he finally gets why I want to make them a constant part of our lives. I am so glad that I burned so many calories because we grabbed Chipotle for dinner. Have you ever calculated the points for Chipotle? The tortilla ALONE before anything else is 6 points. I had 10 points left and ended the day just a few above where I need to be by the time I swapped out my activity points. Thank heaven for those extra flex points! I think my burrito bowl was 17 points. If I would have ordered it the way I really wanted to, with a tortilla and guac, it would have been around 30 points.
I have been able to stay on track for three days now!
I gotta say I am at times shocked that I am ever able to actually follow my points. In theory I look at my week and think I won't have any temptations...
Something comes up every stinking day. In a matter of seconds I can think of 5 times today that I turned down sweets that someone offered me. We all need to decide if it is worth it or not. Also I learned for me that one bit isn't enough. I can not eat just one.


  1. Some days I try so hard to stay on my points then bam! Something happens and I mess it all up. But thankfully this will be my third day I am on track!

  2. congrats on the walking!! and being so on top of your points. I don't really have the money to start the "real" Weight watchers but my sister is trying to coach me through it. Any tips would be greatly appreciated :-) love your blog!

  3. Oh my. A Chipotle is about to open in my town and I'm so excited, but I definitely need to be mindful of what I eat there! I like reading about your walking. Keep up the good work! I've been trying to do a bit every day despite back pain.

  4. "In theory I look at my week and think I won't have any temptations...Something comes up every stinking day."

    Truer words have never been said!! UGH. It's such a hard journey, yet you are right again: "We all need to decide if it is worth it or not." Thanks for reminding me it's worth it :)

  5. congrats on your miles. I ran 2 miles today and I have noticed that when I walk/run it causes me to not be hungry for a while after which is a plus! How long does it take you to walk 4 miles?

  6. I just noticed my lean cuisine has weight watchers points how many points is the allowance when losing weight ?

  7. Hi. I saw you on Just Beachy's blog. I am using the weight watchers plan too. There are days when I am thankful for those flex points too!!!

  8. I'm glad you blog about walking. So many others are runners and I will never be a runner due to horrible knees. I always feel like such a slacker when I read about running. Thanks for being a walker!
