I can't say I am in this for only getting healthy, I want to look great again too.

This week with the kids still sick, I will drink water and ride the bike. I don't think I will have time to do anything else. Maybe do some yoga.....

Kathy, those are great goals. Good luck. I know you can do it!

Well, i should have joined weight watchers tomorrow as today was my birthday and I ate too much! But I did walk twice so hopefully the damage won't be too bad. Tomorrow is another day and i will get back on track. I am very determined.

Well, I took care of everyone today, make a healthy dinner of pork steak, steamed rice and veggies. Dh even ate it! I gave him hot sauce and told him to pretend it was spanish rice. LOL I am making yogurt now. I did drink lots of water today. Not bad at all.

I worked out with my ball. I have a book called Palites and the Ball. I feel like I worked out but I am not sore. One thing I learned from Yogi Salam is to rest between exersices. It does help prevent soreness.

Kids are feeling better but I think it will be a while before they are back 100%. Dh is dragging a little bit.

I think we are all doing great!!Yeah us!!

It has been a while since I posted.

I made menus and stuck with them last week. I haven't made this weeks, that is tomorrows job.

I sold our universal gym. We didn't use it. Now we have room to set up dd's manul treadmill. I was able to walk for 10 minutes Saturday night. My goal for this week is 10 minutes a day.

I bought some cute capri bibs today. My plan is to be able to wear them this spring. Or summer.

I find the bike hurts my knees. I have terrible knees.

I did okay with eating out today. Not great but not terrible either. I think tomorrows lunch with be tofu, rice and veggies.

I have stuck to my diet for 3 weeks and lost 8 pounds but last night I didn't do so well. I took the dks to Burger King for dinner as I had to go to the laundrymat as my washing machine is broken and just didn't have time to make dinner. I most definitely could have made a healthier menu choice but that burger tasted so good! For the most part I have cut back on what I eat, am making healthier choices, and have cut back on portion sizes. I am actually getting used to this now, especially the not eating sweets. I am following ww online which does help me keep track of how much I eat during the day. I have to admit, though, I have not walked in a week. the weather is just too icy and cold. I really need to get that back into my routine because I know I would lose weight easier with regular exercise. it would help my mood too as this winter just drags on.
