Well, here we are at Thursday again :) I am very pleased with this last week. First, the bad news. I only lost one pound this last week. However, I exercised almost every day---- I missed the weekend but the spring cleaning I did was exercise in itself so I'm gonna say it counted in a way :) I ate pretty well but I still need to work on my portion control. I think I need to set up a better system of veggie snacks during the day so that when I do sit down to eat a meal I don't feel quite so starving hungry and eat more than I need to. I have not been dizzy- I have not had a headache- I have not had stomach problems...so I am calling this the greatest week of the year so far on the health front. I have 2 goals for next week. I'm going to post them so that I have to tell you how I did with them next week.
1. Spend the time to clean and chop veggies for snacks for work. This will help me stay away from the snack box at work and also help me from feeling sooo hungry.
2. Walk every day for 30 minutes on the trail before or after work and 2 days out of the week do my Jillian Michaels Exercise DVD. I have to ease into the DVD slowly or I'll be so sore my hubby will have to pull me up off the toilet after I pee :) What's that- more than you wanted to know? Trust me- I know this will happen from past experience. Do not EVER do too many lunges without thinking how your thighs will feel the next day :) No- I didn't really make my hubby get me up off the toilet but there were a few seconds I was thinking he might have to!
Soooo here are some tips and facts I found from looking around this last week.
1. If you’re always tired, and prone to colds and bugs, here's a great healthy eating tip. Cut down on sweetened foods. Sugar makes white blood cells less able to destroy damaging micro-organisms.
**go figure- I think this could be part of some of my problems. Curse you my precious sugar!**
2. This is a tip for adding whole grains into your diet- which is hard for me because my husband rebels against it. Add a cup of regular uncooked oats to each pound of ground beef or turkey in meatballs, burgers or meatloaf.
So- that's my news for this week. 5 pounds until my first Healthy Thinking Give-Away. At this rate it will be in 5 weeks :) They say that weight that is lost slowly is weight that stays off, right? Please visit my friends to see how they are doing. Laura at http://sunshineshangout.blogspot.com has been doing great- but she has been sick this last week so if she doesn't post that is why.
