A Rough Week!

*This picture is not mine it's from Here*
Talk about a rough week!  My goodness!  This week has been the hardest since I started my weight journey!  If you have been following my weight journey posts then you know that last week my goal was to get moving/exercise more.  My bad luck defiantly played a factor in that plan!  About a year ago I had surgery done on my foot.  They put a pin in my foot during this surgery.  Well last week Wednesday 2/27/13 I dropped two glass jars of pasta sauce on that foot and the pin moved.  After a trip to the emergency room I ended up in a surgical boot and on crutches again.  Needless to say between the crutches and the pain I have not been moving much.
I have decided I need to set a different goal to try to accomplish this next week because the exercise thing is just not working for me right now.  I know there are still exercises I can do but honestly with being in pain I just don't feel like it.  So my goal for this next week is to try to start planning my dinner meals a head of time. Weight Watchers has reminded me that if I plan my dinners ahead of time I am less likely to make bad decisions at dinner time!  I have always liked making up a dinner menu anyway but for some reason I have slipped away from it so now is the time to start planning ahead again!  Who's with me?  
Good news this week is I hit my 10% weight loss goal!  I have lost a total of 18 pounds since starting this weight journey!  Let me tell you it feels amazing!  I still have a ways to go but knowing how well this is working for me it's easy to come up with the determination I know it's gonna take! 
The Key chain Weight Watchers gave me for reaching
my 10% goal.
So what are your guys goals this week?  Anyone else have a rough week?  Who is going to try to start meal planning?  Please let me know!  Thank you all for all of the exercise idea's!  Once my foot is doing better I will for sure being trying some of the idea's you all gave me!
