Another month, another failed Weight Watchers update. I didn't lose any weight this month but gained 3 pounds. My eating has been a little out of control, while still remaining within the program and I haven't exercised, with good reason.

I talked a lot about the minor surgery I had on my leg in September; I had a lot of stitches and the doctor told me I had to take it easy. That meant not working out until this past weekend -- almost a month without working out really took a toll on me.

I work out on my pilates machine about 4-5 times a week and then go to the gym 1-2 times on the weekend. That didn't happen at all so it's no wonder I gained a few pounds.

Well, when I saw that number tick up higher than it has in over a year, I knew I had to get smart and stick with it. I know the next few months are going to be tough because of the holidays but I really am going to try my best.

I say that every month whenever I start these updates but I think I mean it this time. If I want to see change, I need to be as strict as I was when I first started this journey. I want to lose at least another 40-50 pounds and being stuck at 20-25 pounds for over a year is just not good enough for me anymore.

To do that, I'm going to be meal prepping a lot, meal planning a week in advance, researching new recipes, and working out as much as possible. I will treat myself when necessary but really have to stick to this lifestyle.

To motivate myself I've been on my Weight Watchers Instagram account more, posting and trying to hold myself accountable. I also made a huge Trader Joe's list and started stockpiling Weight Watchers recipes.

I'm definitely going to stick to pilates on a daily basis but maybe I'll try to incorporate yoga every so often. I started doing yoga a few years ago and it did wonders for my anxiety and helped me lose a bit of weight so we'll see.

I have already started meal prepping and planning and have been pretty successful in that so far (at least for this week). I shared 'what I eat in a week' last month if you're curious about that, but I do have a few new recipes that I've been trying out and they've been really good.

Recipes I've Been Loving

As I try more and more recipes, I will definitely share them here in my next update!
