Been a long time, but I'm back

Hi Ladies,
It's been so long since I've blogged. I honestly keep forgetting. I'm trying to keep on top of things at work but I need to make some time for this too. So 6 weeks ago (geez that went fast) I joined weight watchers again! I plan to stick with it this time and not let things go. I need to be accountable by weighing in so I don't get out of control. I joined the on-line tools which gives access to recipes which I really like. The majority of our dinners during the week are from WW and even Scott enjoys them. So, in the last 6 weeks, I've only lost 3.6 lbs but I know it's going to be a long process for me. I haven't been exercising at all (well, not counting running up and down my stairs 20 times a day, seriously). I really can't wait to fit in my old CUTE jeans again. Also, I've been kinda slacking on the weekends. I try to be good but if I want wine, I have wine. If we go out to dinner, I what I want. I know I could be more disciplined and I will get to that point eventually.
When discussing my food intake, I'm talking in "points". I get 29 a day and an extra 49 a week to be used on whatever, whenever. Plain fruits and veggies are free! What I like about the program is that if makes you focus on eating less carbs, not cutting them out totally but things that are higher in carbs are more points.
Thursday eating:
Morning: Coffee with creamer (my two cups of coffee with creamer is 3 points!)
WW vanilla and almond oatmeal (3)
Banana (0)
Lean Cuisine Beef Portabello (5)
Yoplait Yogurt (3)
Quaker Oats Chewy Granola Bar (3)
Lots of gold fish (I'll say 3 points)
Spicy Beef Tacos , recipe by WW (6)
Small side of rice (4)
I had 3 remaining points for the day but I did eat a few (like 3) chocolate covered almonds so I'll just count that as zero points left over.
I think I really need to focus on exercising more. Especially walking on my breaks and lunch if I can't do it at home. My friends here have been walking so I don't have an excuse!
Glad we are back to blogging. I'll have to check out this lose it app even though I'm not exercising. I'll be the one with no medals :)
