Well, this week flew by for me. How about you? I guess with planning Trinity's party and then being sick I didn't really have much time for anything else.
So here we are, it's Wednesday and that mean it's time for A BETTER ME post.
I hope everyone has been doing really well. I've only gotten four emails from you ladies with your weight loss. So those four ladies plus me had a big 20 lb loss! Not bad huh?
Sounds like everyone is doing super. Keep up the good work because as long as you keep trying you WILL reach your goal. As soon as you give up you give up your chance of succeeding.
Even if you have a bad day or end up eating things you shouldn't it doesn't matter. Just start back up with the next meal. Just because you have a set back doesn't mean you must give up completely.
I have to admit I didn't get much exercise in at all this week. I just felt pretty yucky all week and then finally my body gave up the fight and I got pretty sick. I've been in bed for two days. I have no energy to even walk from room to room let alone go for a long walk or work out.
But, as soon as I feel better I'm going to get back to several days of exercising.
How about you? Did you find a chance to exercise more? I should say did you MAKE the time to exercise more. Tell me about it. What did you do?
Something I did different this week then last week was I ate all the time! I didn't eat three big meals. I just snacked and nibbled all day. I was never hungry. I had no cravings. It was great.
I had heard you should eat several small meals a day to keep your body burning fat. I think it must have worked. Even without any real exercise I lost another 5 lbs.
To be honest I didn't think I would lose anything because it really didn't feel like I was on a diet at all. I did eat all healthy things though. Lots of fruits, veggies, beans and for a sweet treat I had those 100 calorie packs of cookies.
Speaking of those 100 calorie packs. Have you tried them? They are the smallest little things I've ever seen. Looks like food you would serve to an American Girl Doll. They are so cute. I think it makes them more fun to eat. Plus they taste good! My cupboard is now full of little boxes with treats just waiting for me.
I have limited myself to one package a day though. Knowing me, I could eat all of them and end up gaining weight.
Now it's your turn. Tell us what you did last week or what you are doing this week to keep on track! Did you try a new recipe? How about just a new fruit or veggie?
Oh, one more thing I wanted to share before I go back to bed is I'm hooked on Pomegranates. I used to like them as a kid but I had not had one for 20 years or so. I did have pomegranate juice and even made pomegranate jelly. But not just a fresh pomegranate. They are great! They taste good and they take a while to eat. Keeping your hands busy for awhile. Plus of course, they are very good for you.
So the next time you are at the store pick one up and put it in your cart. Try it and let me know what you think of it.
Keep up the great work and don't forget... this year we WILL do it!
