Times they are a changing

You know the old saying "if it ain't broke, don't fit it", well in the case of my diet it's "broken" and it's time for a fix'in.  

Two days ago I was getting so frustrated and felt like I needed a life preserver.   After some thought about The South Beach Diet ( I have been on it for over 2 years)  I decided to try a different route.  I think I was getting super bored so I took the plunge and  joined Weight Watchers online.   Even though money is super tight right now my lovely boyfriend was kind enough to put it on his credit card.  I signed up for three months and I will give it 100 percent and see what happens?? 

(Side note) I did try Weight |Watchers about 7 years ago and it didn't work for me but I know it has changed a great deal since then so why not give it a second chance??   

I didn't reach 100 miles for the month of July but I am still proud that I did 60.72 miles/ 97.15km!   This only includes exercise from spin class, walking and the elliptical.   This month I will challenge myself again to do 100 miles.  Wish me luck :) 

My sister, Rob and I went to the drive in to see the latest Batman it was pretty good and It is something we have been wanting to do for a few years now.  I can cross that off the bucket list now :) 


  1. Best of luck to reaching 100 miles for the next month. I like that goal! You did accomplish a lot and be proud of that.

    1. Thanks Liz :) I found it really kept me focused and made me move a lot more :)

  2. How are you tracking your miles, Joy? I'd love to take your challenge, too! :)
    Best of luck with your new program. You've totally GOT this!!

    1. I got to the gym alot so it'ss easy there but when i'm outside walking, jogging, or biking there is an app to track your miles and your calories it's called "trek trak" I own a blackberry but I'm sure the iphone would even have a cooler app :) plus it tracks how fast you are going too!

      Thanks Laura, Weight watcher is very eye opening and very different from South beach but I am up for the challege!
