Fitness on Friday #7

Ok, I have no motivation for myself or anyone this week. All I can say is...vacation + me = bad news for the waistline. Eek! I have a lot of work to do when we get back...I've slipped into some BAD eating habits this past week. But...tonight it will be a salad...with very little dressing. I PROMISE!

Oh...and yes, this is posted early again. I'll be at a RED SOX game tomorrow and Friday I get to go into Boston again. So...I want to make sure I have this up in time.

I hope you're all doing better than me...New England is my friend, but not my waistline's friend. LOL!

Fitness on Friday #6

Yes, I know today is Tuesday, not Friday. But it's going to be a crazy week, so since I have a minute right now I thought I'd get this posted to make sure it gets done.

I'm doing pretty well as far as exercise is concerned. The weather has been really good so I've been taking the girls out for walks. It's so nice to get outside. I'm ready to shed this winter layer of fat (that I've held onto for more than just one!

Oh and my favorite lunch lately has been stir-fry veggies in Mr. Yoshida sauce. Yum! And it's low calorie too! :)

Fitness on Friday #5

Ok, I'm a slacker, slacker, slacker!!! I haven't written over here since last Fitness on Friday. Gah! Forgive me!

I'm feeling a little bad this week. I had to take a dollar off my motivation money for the first time. I get one day off from exercising a week, but this week I took two. :( But, I did go out and walk 2 miles today to help make up for it.

I'm having terrible cravings for caramel corn. You'd think I was pregnant or something...I'm not, I'm 100% positive. LOL! I need to resist those temptations!

This week I plan to exercise as much as I can, no more missing days.

Fitness on Friday #4

Interest in this meme was way down last week. :( I hope we can get some people joining it soon. I REALLY need the motivation.

I didn't have a good week. I really need to figure out what's keeping me from losing weight. I want to, at least I think I do. But I keep sabatoging myself. I've been motivated before and had success. Why am I struggling so hard right now?

I am doing well with my water intake though, so that's a good thing.

Feeling Better

Man! We got hit hard with the sickies this week. Josh was nice enough to not make me take money away from my motivation money for missing 2 days of exercise due to sickness. But today we're all back to healthy and I got my exercise in. Sure, it wasn't vigorous exercise, but we took a nice long walk as a family. It was nice and the perfect kind of exercise for a Sunday.

Tomorrow I really hope I can get my exercise in again. We'll be gone most of the day getting our monthly shopping in. My fingers are crossed that we'll be home in time.

Fitness on Friday #3

I'm not going to lie. This was a HARD week for me. I was out of town, which never makes exercise and healthy eating easy. I did exercise...but not hard core cardio or anything. Oh well. I was proud of myself that I ordered a low fat item when we went out to eat with a ton of family. We went to Johnny Carino's...yum! I had this lemon rosemary chicken. It was good, I totally recommend it...although the portion size is way too big.

My biggest accomplishment I wrote about in the post before this one. I found that I was actually craving water instead of soda. Yay!

But I did get a chance to watch how my skinny cousins eat and I'm excited to try some of the stuff they make. Like chicken and stir-fry vegetables in Yashida let's see if I can find that sauce. LOL!

Please join us in Fitness on Friday. Just make a post about your exercise/health and how you're doing. Or share a tip or quote. Really share anything that's helping you. Then visit other participants and let's help each other all get healthy!

Oh and for some reason the button on the side was giving 2 buttons instead of one when you copied and pasted it. I think I have that fixed, so if you tried to copy and paste and ended up with two buttons snag the new code and it should just give you one. Sorry about that!

Awesome Discovery

As we were driving back from Idaho yesterday we stopped in Twin Falls to gas up the car. I went in to get a drink and was so excited to see they had Caffeine Free Diet Coke (no caffeine for me because I'm still breastfeeding). I drank it I realized I really wanted water!!! Seriously? Water instead of yummy Diet Coke? Yep! That makes me happy, my body is actually craving water now.
