I want to keep drinking my water and getting my fiber. I need to work on getting more sleep and logging more exercise minutes.

I didn't have such a hot weekend in the eating department. It was good to eat such yummy yummy foods, but not so good for my diet. I had a yummy chicken and spinach wrap on Saturday night. The bad thing was it was crunchy chicken and of course I had a side of fries. I am not quite used to ordering yet. Then yesterday I had 2 pizza burgers flying style and you can't have pizza burgers without fries. Yeah not good.

On the other hand, I got to snuggle my little nephew a lot this weekend and that was good enough to get my baby fever to subside for a bit. ;)

Also, on a side note...I have a girlfriend who is going through a lot right now. Could you send some thoughts and prayers her way? Thanks!!

Weigh In Wednesday-Week 2

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

I am down 4.4lbs this week. I want to continue to be diligent about exercising daily or almost daily. We started a health challenge at work so I am also working on getting 64oz of water a day, all my fruits & veggies, 25g of fiber, and getting a good amount of sleep. Those are just some of the things we get points for.

It has been very nice here the past few days but it sounds like it is going to cool off for the weekend. :(

Happy Wednesday All!!

Weigh In Wednesday

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

I am happy and proud to say that I am down 5.5lbs since we started. That is amazing since I did gain some over the weekend due to my Holiday Party for work.

My goals will continue to be the same. I still have to figure out some healthy snacks for the office. I think I have the suppers figured out. I joined WW last week so I journal all of my food online.

On to Week 2!!

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred

I did level 1 of this workout for the very first time today. Holy is it rough! But I LOVED IT!! That is strange for me to say. I have tried other workout dvd/videos in the past and have never stuck with them. Mostly because they get so complicated. This has simple movements that work you out and make you sweat. And to be totally honest, Jillian scares me just a little.

That is just my 2 cents on it.

Well there goes that plan...

Yes, I started Weight Watchers on Friday. But you know what...Tonight was my "Holiday Party" for work. Yeah, ummmmmmm too much good food for me to say no to. YIKES!! I guess there is always tomorrow. Too much good wine and food can make a girl sleepy. ;) Until another day...

Mom, I want a Snuggie!

Um, yeah, ok, was my original reaction.

Have any of you seen this commercial? I had no idea what it was until The Boy said it is what he wanted from Santa. Now I can't get away from the commercial. I see it at least 5 times a day.

The boy has also mentioned numerous times since Christmas that he is really sad that Santa didn't bring him a Snuggie. FOR PETE'S SAKE!!! The kid got a Leapster 2 and some Star Wars toys. Goodness!

Hopefully between my sewing mom and I we can figure out how to make one for both of the kids so I can stop hearing about it. (Secretly I want one too, I realized the other night how nice it would be to have one while I was curled up in a chair reading. Shhhhh!)
