Better Tuesdays: Hangin' In There

We are officially 1/3 of the way through the BetterU program and I am pleased to say that I am plugging along as well as can be expected. I have definitely been incorporationg all of the advice and tips provided to us and, slowly but surely, I am seeing results. My exercise regiment (I never had one of those before!) has really started to stick and I notice that I don't feel right if I skip a workout. I also lost another 1lb last week, which is great, but what isn't great is that I know that I probably could have lost another 1lb had I exercised the recommended 5x. I ended up skipping 2 days for reasons that seemed important at the time, but that I now can't even remember.

So that's it. Nothing monumental to report. Just watching my diet, entering my WW points and exercising. I did slide over the weekend during my girls' getaway and ate rich foods high in fat and calories (crab quesadillas, martinis, french fries, hot chocolate, a bacon omelet) because I am WEAK. Or maybe just human. It was like learning to walk. The first bite of the quesadilla was terrible and I felt AWFUL about it. Like I could feel the fat being absorbed by my body. (dramatic?) The second bite was easier and by the end I even threw in a chicken wing. Just goes to show what a slippery slope eating is! Hopefully it didn't set me back too much. I just need to get back on the bandwagon and stay on.

Find of the Week: Yoplait Light Fat Free Yogurt. With flavors like Boston Cream Pie, Apple Turnover and Pineapple Upside Down Cake, I can have my dessert and eat it too. Good job Yoplait - I am impressed.

Here's to another solid week!

Good job! I am impressed and was so impressed on Friday when you discouraged me from order the second round of quesidillas and suggested hummus instead. I'll try the exercise thing since you are basically saying that you're addicted already!

I recently found your blog while viewing the "Go Red For Women" site and I must say it's great to see other women out there who are going through the same things I am. I am a mother of four children (14, 12, 11, & 9) and am a recent graduate of law school. Long hours in the law library haven't exactly been the best for my figure, so I'm yet again turning my focus to a more healthy way. Thanks for such an uplifting, inpsiring blog!
