Plugging through the week

Started working on strength training (again) this week. Monday was Core Secrets and I am STILL sore! Feels kinda good though, knowing that sore equals results. Yesterday was treadmill cardio for 45 minutes...sweating like a dog. Yay! Today I may tackle half of the Firm cardio workout (which actually mixes strength training into it) and a bit of elliptical. Feeling strong this week so far!

Of course, it is not showing on the scale. (GRUMBLE) I'm still up a pound and I'm wondering if it is due to the pms bloat. Need to up my water again! I keep water backsliding for some dumb reason. So easy to do, yet so easy to forget!

I managed not to snack in bed last night. Sadly, that is still a daily battle. I decided to buy a big ole mess of gum and stick some in a bowl beside my bed. Need to do something, that's for sure.

My husband and kiddo are heading out of town this weekend to go camping with my in-laws...I stay home...mama don't do camping. I'm a bit worried about my eating though. I've always used the weekends alone (I get them usually 2-3 times a year) to lay in bed, watch movies, and eat my favorite foods: tons of pasta salad, Sunchips, M&M's, and french bread by the loaf. This year, I'm planning to stock up on a ton of my favorite microwave meals, popcorn, yogurt, and fiber bars.

(Not as much fun, if you ask me!)

Speaking of yogurt, I decided after MUCH obsessive googling (I do that) I'm not going to be able to avoid artificial sweeteners (unless I go greek...YUCK) so I'll just get over it. I found a new yogurt that I am totally in love with...Fiber One vanilla yogurt. Yum. Seriously, try it! It has a ton of fiber (5 grams) so I feel like I'm killing two birds with one tiny 50 calorie snack!

Well, I'm off to maybe workout. Maybe. :)


  1. I like to get a big container of plain yogurt and add my own fruit and maple syrup. I add the fruit and maple syrup when I'm ready to eat, i.e. I don't add it to the whole container.

  2. Ugh...I hate plain yogurt with a PASSION, even with a bunch of stuff added. The syrup does peak my interest a bit...but it's not exactly on my calorie plan right now, at least not very often! I did cheat and have some a couple weeks ago at IHOP though...
